11 Signs Your Partner Is About To Leave You

Nov 19, 2018

Breakups are never fun. Sometimes it seems like they just come out of the blue! Other times the trouble has been brewing for a while. Your man might have been dropping hints about it all along. Your perception was probably skewed by being in the relationship. Friends and relatives could see your problems from a mile away. Recognizing these 11 signs can actually help save your relationship. It will also build your self-confidence the next time you go through it.

These tips can even help you break up with someone. Sometimes it's better to just cut things off before they get worse! Take matters into your own hands and don't put up with his nonsense.


1. You Have A "Gut Feeling" About It


A common piece of advice, especially in relationships, is to "trust your gut." So you're probably tired of hearing it! There's a reason that people say it, though. Your intuition is sensing that something's wrong, even if you're not sure what it is. It tries to protect you.

2. He Starts To Have Other Priorities


Suddenly, it seems like you're not important anymore. He might be working later, or hanging out with his friends more. Your man just doesn't care about your relationship. Be especially careful if he takes up a new hobby. He's pouring all his energy into that, instead of focusing on you.

3. You're Having Problems In The Bedroom


Many people use sex as a way to feel close. You're physically expressing that emotional connection. That's why problems in the bedroom spell trouble for other parts of your relationship. If you're having sex less often then he's drifting away from you. If he's pushing you to do things you're not into, then you clearly have different desires. Sex should feel safe and fun, not a chore or a stress point.

4. He Wants To Hang Out More With His Friends


Friends are great. We all love our friends. But there's an issue when your man would rather hang out with his buddies than with you! They start to have more say in your relationship. Maybe even more than you! His friends could be negatively influencing him. Be careful about the company he keeps.

5. He's Annoyed When You Ask Him For Attention

Couples are supposed to support each other, right? A sure sign of relationship trouble is when this doesn't happen. You ask him for attention and he brushes you off. He sees this as encroaching on his territory. Your man is putting up boundaries instead of letting you in.

6. He Doesn't Put Effort Into Your Relationship


At best, he's dismissive. At worst, he outright ignores you. You're the only one making time for him, never the other way around. He sees you as a burden rather than a joy. Maybe he's even planning a breakup so he can escape. Why would you want someone who treats you that way?

7. He Doesn't Look Good For You Anymore


Sure, relationships aren't all about looks...but it's still important. After all, physical attraction is part of what brought you together. A bare minimum of good grooming habits and hygiene go a long way. If he's not doing that, then maybe you should move on.

8. You Have More Bad Days Than Good


What happened to the magic? That initial "spark" that made you fall in love? If it's gone, then your relationship might be over. You just don't have fun together anymore. When you can count the good days on one hand, it's time to let go. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life!

9. You Don't Talk About The Future

You want a serious relationship but he wants a fling. You're not compatible with him. You deserve to be with someone good who actually cares. Focus on building a meaningful life not someone's secondhand helpings.

10. You Don't Have Deep And Meaningful Conversations


Communication is the key to any successful relationship. You need to be able to share your thoughts and fears. If your conversations stay on the surface then you've lost trust.

11. Neither Of You Are Willing To Compromise


Sometimes relationships are about sacrifice. This isn't a bad thing. We all have to make adjustments. But consider the situation carefully. If you're the one bending for him, or if the compromises feel too large, then it's just not worth it. You shouldn't have to change yourself. No man is worth that much.
