We all want our relationship to be perfect. But it’s not always so. People do fall in love but relationships are hard work.
We are human beings – we are imperfect and there’s always something that could go wrong. In a relationship, there are so many variables to look out for, it’s impossible for something not to go wrong.
Fact is, people do fall out of love. It’s best to see some of the warning signs so that it’d be easier for us to move ahead:
1. She doesn’t care anymore
It seems like there is no care that’s coming from her anymore. You might find her less interested in you, and everything related to you. She doesn’t seem to ask you about your day. All that vitality is gone. You might feel like she’s not interested in anything, but you should start realizing that perhaps she’s actually not interested in you anymore.
2. No more compliments
Gone are the days when she complimented on how handsome you looked. Of course, both of you were attracted to each other when you’d started dating. It has faded away now and she doesn’t even acknowledge any change of your hairstyle or fashion. That physical liking that started it all is just not there anymore.
3. No effort to keep it working
She knows when the relationship is not working. You know it too. But there’s no effort coming from her side to protect the relationship. She doesn’t care if you fight or try to do anything to keep the relationship. It’s a two-way game and she isn’t participating anymore.
4. Communication is no longer there
Communication is the key to any relationship. It’s what helps build a relationship from scratch and makes it work. But now, there is no meaningful communication between the both of you. It’s rare and superficial and you know the spark is no longer there.
5. She does what she wants and doesn’t care how you feel about it
You are no longer the special person who she talks to when something comes up in her mind. She takes her own decisions and doesn’t really wish to discuss it with you. It doesn’t matter if your feelings get hurt because of her actions. She’s doing whatever she believes is right for her, regardless of whether you like it or not.
6. Don’t expect any thank you from her
The jumping-for-joy feeling when you come home with flowers is no longer there. She would smile when you brought the takeaway but no, there’s nothing of that sort anymore. Every gesture that you had done for her, like planning dates and bringing surprise gifts are now met with indifference.
7. You are the one who’s beginning the conversation
She had so much to talk about before. There was almost no stopping her. She would talk about anything just to hear your voice and see how much she can stimulate you. Now, it’s no longer the same. You are the one who’s starting each conversation. She doesn’t seem to be interested in participating in it.
8. She doesn’t do anything to make you feel special
In the past, she would do things for you just to make you feel special. The romance was burning and she would do so many romantic things that you’d go giddy in her presence. Everything seems a little off now. She doesn’t do anything that would make you feel like you really matter to her. It’s pretty clear that she’s not happy at all.
9. She doesn’t need your attention, neither does she give you any
She really wanted your attention all the time. Talking and listening, engaging you mentally and physically, she wanted to be in front of your eyes always. And for her, you were the center of the universe. She barely even acknowledges you anymore. You may not even be there. It means the opposite too. If you are not there for her, that means she doesn’t require any attention from you too.
10. Physical intimacy is at an all-time low
Those loving hugs and kisses, those amazing midnight secrets in bed; all of them are gone now. There’s no more physical intimacy left between the two of you. It has started to vanish. Now be aware that your relationship is not in a great place at all.
It’s great if you want to keep your relationship but some things are not meant to be. Love is special, but you can’t force someone to love you forever. Sometimes, it’s best to look for signs and to prepare yourself to move on. The future lies ahead.
