If you think he doesn’t love you anymore, take note of these subtle signs listed and make sure to catch them early enough so there’s a better chance at rekindling the relationship:
1. He refuses to discuss what’s bothering him.
They don’t want to talk about what’s bothering them because it may make them feel uncomfortable.
What is the best solution to discomfort? Avoidance.
They don’t want to discuss anything that may bring feelings of discomfort.
2. Communication becomes less frequent.
Lack of communication needs to be detected early in order for the relationship to be saved.
If it’s not addressed early enough, it allows them to emotionally withdraw from the relationship completely.
3. He suddenly has a new obsession.
Everyone has passions and hobbies that they should like participating in.
It becomes worrisome when a passion or hobby is being used as a distraction or a way of avoiding the relationship.
If less time is being spent with you and more time is being spent on a hobby, it may be a way of ignoring the relationship.
Pay attention to the amount of time being spent on a hobby and the amount of time spent with you.
4. He gives up on his appearance.
When one partner gives up on their appearance and doesn’t make an effort to shave or clean up, that partner is showing no concern or worry that the other find him attractive.
Not cleaning up for a night out on the town or to go hang out with friends may indicate an avoidance of intimacy altogether.
5. There’s minimal to no cuddling.
In the beginning of the relationship, cuddling was natural in order to feel close to one another.
Cuddling is one of the ways couples feel close to each other.
If there’s minimal to no cuddling anymore, it may mean that they aren’t concerned or interested in meeting your intimacy needs.
6 He doesn’t ask about your day.
This just shows an overall lack of interest in whatever it is you do on your day-to-day.
If they don’t ask about your day, it may also be a sign that it’s really not that important to them.
7. He doesn’t hold your hand anymore.
Holding hands usually comes naturally to couples.
If they aren’t holding your hand, it can mean they have a lack of interest in being physically close and connected to the other.
8. He no longer talks about the future or avoids the topic altogether.
The future a couple once had that involved a family and buying a house becomes a distant memory of what a couple once shared.
9. There’s lack of eye contact.
Nonverbal communication, such as eye contact, says a lot about how much a person values another and how important a person is to them.
If there is minimal eye contact within the relationship, it’s time to question their feelings and why this change has occurred.
10. Conversations have become surface-level discussions.
Your conversations and discussions become relatively uninteresting and at times, meaningless.
For example, you may ask about a baseball game or game show your partner is watching and that is as far as it goes.
Discussion about the relationship and issues within the relationship are avoided.
Take action early. Do not wait until it’s too late.
Don’t get the thought in your head that you are nagging because you’re not.
You have every right to know what is going on in your partner’s life and how your partner feels within the relationship.
Communication is key and if your partner is unable to communicate their feelings and issues in the relationship, then they aren’t worth it and you deserve better.
