According to the advice of relationship experts and psychologists, there are some very distinct ways in which you can tell whether your relationship is perhaps drawing to a premature close – and it all lies in the way your partner actually treats you. These signs might also indicate a certain lack of seriousness and commitment on the part of your partner in the relationship.
And to delve deeper into this theory, scientists have been able to pinpoint certain keywords or phrases that could potentially damage a relationship to the point that things are irreparable. You should make it a point to really pay attention to the things that your partner is telling you. He might be giving you clues about sad state of your relationship.
If you notice that your man says these 7 things to you, then it’s highly probable that he just doesn’t love you anymore.
1. “You can’t expect me to explain everything to you.”
Love is patient. That is a basic tenet of love. And that’s why it’s really sketchy if you’re with a man who isn’t patient enough to talk to you and explain his thoughts and feelings with you.
2. “Your problems shouldn’t be my problems.”
In any kind of romantic relationship that is built on trust, respect, and love, there should always be a sense of mutuality. That’s why couples with strong relationships share in both their triumphs and their defeats. The success of one is the success of the relationship as a whole.
But if he’s distancing himself from you just because you’re being problematic, he might not be in love with you after all.
3. “Find someone else if you don’t like what you see.”
Whenever a man threatens you to find someone else, then that’s never a good sign at all. If he just doesn’t think it okay for you to have a differing opinion or a dissenting thought, then he might not really be in love with you after all.
A man who is truly in love with you is always going to want to listen to whatever you have to say even if it’s in disagreement with what he is saying himself.
4. “I don’t really trust you.”
Be very wary of being in a relationship with a guy who is incapable of trusting you. You should only ever really be in a relationship with someone who is going to be willing to place his trust in you. There is no way that the two of you would ever have an intimate romantic relationship if you can’t find it in yourselves to trust one another.
You might think that he’s just being sweet, protective, or territorial. But that’s not the case. It’s perfectly possible to still be all of those things without having to compromise the trust in the relationship.
5. “I don’t know. Do whatever you feel.”
6. “Stop overthinking everything.”
If your man tells you that you’re just overthinking everything whenever you try to bring something up with them, then there is really something wrong. That means that they’re not really invested in whatever you have to say to them anymore. It goes to show that they find your thoughts uninteresting.
And when that’s the case, it usually means that he’s just fallen out of love with you. It might just really go to show that his feelings for you have dissipated and that’s why he doesn’t really take your thoughts and opinions seriously anymore.
7. “I don’t love you anymore.”
And if you’re lucky enough (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it), you are going to have a partner who is going to be honest and upfront with you about the fact that they are no longer in love with you. And even though this might be devastating news to hear, it might actually be a blessing in disguise.
It’s a lot better to have a partner tell you that they no longer love you instead of having them stay in a relationship with you even though they don’t really have feelings for you anymore. They are only prolonging the inevitable demise of your romance. And you will both just end up wasting your time.
