If you have noticed a change in your partner’s behavior recently and it has left you feeling insecure and paranoid, then this article is for you. When someone you love suddenly shirks away from you or becomes withdrawn, it is easy to overthink and become worried about your shared future. Before you start doing that, however, you should attempt to “right the ship”, says relationship expert Monica Parikh of School of Love NYC.
While this may sound easier said than done, the most important thing you can do is to trust your instincts. If something seems “off” about your relationship, then it definitely is. So, keep a lookout for these 10 signs that will very clearly indicate to you what exactly your partner thinks of you.
#1. Your Partner Makes You Feel Miserable.
It’s not easy to admit that you’re in a toxic relationship. But if you notice certain repetitive, poisonous behaviors such as lying and cheating, it’s time you stood up for yourself. If your partner leaves you feeling unsatisfied, unfulfilled, unhappy and unloved, you should get out of the relationship as soon as you can. Throw away all thoughts and hopes that your partner will magically change and begin to appreciate you again. Your only choice is to take control of your love life and start anew. It’ll be good for both of you.
#2. Your Partner Hardly Explains Anything To You.
They feel no obligation to explain themselves after anything they do or say. This tells you that you have no significant importance to them anymore. You have no power or influence over them whatsoever, so they think they are able to do whatever they want without justifying their actions.
#3. No Respect Is A Big Sign Of No Love.
Your partner disregards all the good moments and memories you have shared together and stay fixated on only the bad ones. They have no respect for you anymore, whether it be your opinion, work, looks or personality. They constantly voice their disapproval and belittle your feelings and emotions. Sometimes, it seems that their sole motive is to make you feel bad about yourself.
#4. Your Partner’s Plans Don’t Involve You.
Notice how your partner talks about his future plans. If they never mention or involve you in them, that’s a clear indicator that they don’t expect you to be in their future. For them, the ideal situation is one in which they don’t have you around. Do not try to convince your partner that you matter – rather, prove it by leaving them and making them realize what life without you is really like.
Your partner has lost interest in staying at home. They come back from work increasingly late, citing excuses that range from work meetings to hang outs with friends. If they are tight-lipped about who exactly they were out with and where it might be a sign that they would rather spend the majority of their day with anyone but you.
