It’s unfortunate when a good love turns sour. It can’t be helped most of the time. People might just have tendencies to drift apart because of their differences.
There’s not much you can do when that happens. If you happen to find yourself in a relationship where you feel the romance is dwindling, then you have to either try harder or just end things. If you feel like things are still worth fighting for, then, by all means, fight for the love that you think you deserve. However, if you think that neither of you is willing to put in the effort anymore, then you might as well just let things go.
It can be difficult to end a relationship that you’ve invested so much of yourself into. It’s understandable for you to be hesitant. Your mind can trick you into actually believing that there’s nothing wrong with your relationship. You have to be wary of the signs so you don’t end up wasting each other’s time by continuing to engage in a dying love. When you notice some of these red flags, it’s best that both of you reevaluate your relationship and whether or not you should push forward. Here are the top 13 signs that he’s not liking being in a relationship with you.
- He looks like he’s always bored.
Relationships don’t always have to be exciting 24/7. But if he looks like he’s always bored when he’s with you, then that’s an indication that your relationship is just losing its spark. Try to remedy the situation by asking him to go do adventurous activities with you.
- He’s constantly absent during important occasions.
Parents’ anniversaries? Siblings’ birthdays? If he’s constantly absent from important occasions in your life, then that’s an indication that he’s also emotionally absent from your relationship.
- He’s always on edge.
He’s like a powder keg that’s about to explode. You find that he’s more irritable these days and he’s just one trigger away from blowing up. He’s always dodgy and he can’t carry a proper conversation with you without seeming like he’ll go off on you.
- He cancels on you often.
If he’s constantly prioritizing other things over you, then that should be a sign that he is losing interest in your relationship. While it is acceptable to occasionally spend more time at work or with family, it shouldn’t be an excuse to always cancel on you.
- He breaks his promises all the time.
It means he doesn’t value his word anymore. He doesn’t care about how broken promises will make you feel because he’s no longer fully invested in your relationship.
- He looks like he’s constantly distracted whenever he’s with you.
He never gives you his full attention anymore even though you’re alone together. His thoughts are wandering and he always seems like he’s adrift. You’re no longer the one thought that consumes his mind.
He’s become a homeboy. He doesn’t like to be seen in public with you anymore because it’s just not important to him. You’re no longer important to him. It’s time for you both to move on.
- You feel like there’s been a shift in your chemistry.
Things just aren’t how they used to be. You notice that his gentlemanly demeanors of the past are long gone and nowhere to be found. He no longer makes you breakfast in the morning or holds the door for you. He doesn’t like to give you regular hugs and kisses anymore because he’s genuinely disinterested.
- He’s visibly frustrated.
You can just see it on his face. You feel the frustration emanating from his skin. Sometimes, it doesn’t have to be blatant but you feel it in your gut. Trust your instincts always and ask him about how he feels. If he’s going to be indifferent, that’s cause for trouble
- He prefers to be alone most of the time.
While it’s okay for people in relationships to occasionally ask for space, it’s a whole different story when they no longer like spending time with you. If he’s always asking for alone time, you might as well not be in a relationship.
- He’s rarely in a good mood when he’s around you.
You no longer brighten up his day. Instead, your relationship is the source of his stress and it’s visible on his face. He rarely shines and smiles whenever you’re together because he’s unhappy with your relationship.
- He’s uncomfortable with moving forward in your relationship.
He doesn’t want you in the narrative anymore. He’s afraid of taking your relationship to the next level because he knows it’s not going to work out in the end. He won’t be comfortable with making a plan for the future with you in it. The doom is near and you have to realize that.
- He lets you know that he’s not happy.
The most blatant sign that he’s not happy with your relationship is when he lets you know about it. Just be mature about it and talk it out. If it’s not meant to be, then it’s not meant to be.
