1. You like the feeling of a relationship but not the person
Holding hands, having someone care about you and being affectionate, getting to have a new best friend and do fun things with, being with someone who you can confide in because of the trust that is built – it’s amazing! Who wouldn’t want that? Of course there is fighting and drama, but you have to ask yourself does the good outweigh the bad? Remember you aren’t the only one in a relationship.
If you are with someone you aren’t that into but they are madly in love with you, let them go. Find that amazing feeling of being in a relationship with someone you actually want to be in a relationship with.
If you are imagining someone replacing your boyfriend, it’s a definite sign you are losing interest in your relationship.
2. Become distant unintentionally
If you’re dealing with the feeling that something is missing, focusing on the annoyances of your partner, lack of excitement, etc. Of course you are going to become distant. One, you’re thinking about breaking up with this person, and two, we naturally put up a guard when we aren’t happy.
Automatically we become distant and sometimes can’t shake it. Keep in mind to pay attention when you aren’t being affectionate or compassionate or caring about the other person.
3. You’d rather hang with other people
This is a clear indication you are losing interest in your relationship. If being with your boyfriend sounds like a chore, it may be time to break up. Of course, it’s okay to want to hang out with your friends. It’s even healthy to plan girls nights! But if you are planning a night with your partner and it’s the last thing you want to do, note that that’s not how being in a relationship should feel.
4. All the little annoyances are magnified
Everyone has their flaws. When you are in a relationship you accept each other for good and bad. If all you can do is focus on the negative things about your partner it is definitely not a good sign.
We all have our moments when everyone is getting on our last nerve, but if this is something that happens constantly, note it!
4. Other boys interest you
Don’t get me wrong, it is absolutely okay to check out other guys when you are in a relationship. A little flirting never hurt anyone. But when you are day dreaming about other boys, thinking about what dating other guys would be like, and missing the single life, it’s time to contemplate a break up.
It’s not fair to your man to not give him the attention he deserves. And it is not fair to yourself just because you are afraid of breaking up or hurting him.
5. Want to skip the sex
Sex and intimacy are a key part in any relationship. It is what differentiates a friendship from a relationship. If sex sounds like work to you, that is not good. Sex is fun and a way to be with your man emotionally.
If you aren’t wanting to have sex with your partner it’s a sign you aren’t wanting to connect with them. Wanting to skip sex if you’re not in the mood is one thing, but if you don’t want to have sex because of the person it would be with, that’s another.
6. You don’t want to talk
If you can, and prefer, to go a whole day without talking to your partner, that’s probably a bad sign. Remember the days when you didn’t want to stop talking to them? What happened to those? Well, you’re likely losing interest and you don’t want to talk to that person.
I’m not saying you need to spend every second texting and calling your significant other, but if you’d rather skip talking all together you probably want to take a minute and think about what that means.
