We all know that relationships are difficult. One needs to nurture and cherish a relationship to make it work. But, sometimes we become so comfortable in a relationship, that we fail to see that the other person is not very happy and are actually thinking of breaking up. If you are going through a rough patch, then you must be wondering about the future of your relationship. Here we bring to you a list of signs that you are heading for a breakup.
You Have Stopped Communicating
One of the earliest signs that you are heading for a breakup is when both partners stop communicating with each other. Communication is the key to a healthy and successful relationship. If you do not have anything to converse with each other and go weeks without speaking to one another, then evidently you have compatibility issues. People who love one another will always have plenty to talk about.
Your Partner is Emotionally Distant
Has your partner drastically reduced the time he/she spends with you? Has he/she stopped messaging you and always keeps his conversations short and clipped? Well, this is a warning sign that you might be heading for a breakup. A partner who is not happy and satisfied in a relationship will avoid spending “couple time” and will seem emotionally distant.
He/she prefers the Company of his/her Friends
In the beginning of a relationship, a couple spends most of their time together and hardly has time or inclination to spend time with friends. But, if your partner is spending more and more time with his/her friends and totally ignoring you, then it is a sign that all is not well in your relationship.
Lack of Intimacy
A drop in physical contact and intimacy is another sign that you are heading for a breakup. Shying away from physical intimacy is a sure sign that something is bothering your partner or he/she has lost interest in the relationship.
Your Partner Nitpicks Constantly
When a person is unhappy in a relationship, then he/she finds faults in their partner. If your boyfriend/girlfriend is constantly finding faults in you, your appearance or your work, then it is a sign that you may be heading for a breakup.
You Hardly Go Out on Dates
Have you stopped going out on dates and are just content staying at home spending time in front of the television? Although spending time at home is perfectly normal, one also needs to go out and have a good time. If your partner has stopped asking you out on dates, then it is surely a sign that he is losing interest in you.
You Fight Constantly
Constant bickering over small and insignificant matters is one of the classic signs that your relationship is in trouble. If you cannot be in the same room without quarrelling, then it is a sign that you are heading for a breakup.
He/she gives you the Silent Treatment
On the other hand, you hardly fight but your partner shows his/her anger by giving you the silent treatment. This is also a sign that all is not well in your relationship.
You do not make Decisions Together
People who are in a long and loving relationship, take their decisions about major life events together. If you are the last person to know about your partner’s promotion, him buying a car or booking a flat, then your relationship is not going to last long.
You do not bother about your Appearance
Have you stopped paying attention to the way you look and have a casual attitude about your appearance? If you have stopped bothering about the way you look and hardly make any effort for your partner, then it is a sign that your relationship has lost its spark and appeal.
These were some signs that you are heading for a breakup. If you are having any issues or difficulties in your relationship, then it is best to talk with your partner and sort it out, before things get to the point where you cannot salvage the relationship.
