Alas, not all people are in a relationship for love.
Some people stay in a couple for all the wrong reasons, because they are afraid of being alone or because they need the attention that the other person gives them.
In any case, it could be that your partner stays with you simply because you are “practical” for him, here are 5 signs to help you to unmask him.
1. He puts no effort into your relationship
It’s one of the things you have a hard time admitting, even to yourself, but when you take off your pink sunglasses and start looking at things realistically, you’ll find that this man is putting almost no effort in your relationship.
When you take a closer look, you are the one who makes the effort for most of the time.
You are the only one fighting for this relationship and without a doubt, this relationship means a lot more to you than to him.
He is your partner and you think it is natural for him to be your priority.
But he doesn’t feel the same for you. It’s as if this relationship isn’t as important to him as it is to you.
It is more than obvious that you are the one who loves it the most in this relationship and over time you have gotten used to it.
But when you think about it, you have to wonder if this guy really likes you.
2. He doesn’t want to solve your problems
When you say you have a no-fuss relationship, everyone envies you.
But every healthy couple simply has to come to a situation in which there is a problem to be resolved or when the two sides do not agree on something.
Even when this happens to you as a couple, your partner is never interested in solving these situations or discussing your problems together.
It is as if he never cares about getting to the end of things and as if the future of your relationship does not interest him.
Although at first you thought it was a good thing, over time you realized that he was just not interested in fixing your problems and that he was not interested in improving your relationship.
3. He is not interested in your person
When a man really loves you, he will never be too tired or too busy for you.
This man will always have enough energy to listen to your problems or simply to be there when you need them.
With your boyfriend, it’s anything but that!
Looks like he’s never interested in anything that has to do with you.
This guy is anything but your friend and you never feel like he is holding your face like a real partner should.
When you think about it, this guy never cares about how you spent your day, let alone anything else, that’s one of the sure signs of his lack of emotion and of his lack of interest in you.
4. You are the originator of everything
It seems that your boyfriend does not like spending time with you.
Even if you apologize to him, telling yourself he’s too busy or whatever, deep down, you know that’s not what a real adult relationship should be like.
As far back as you can remember, you always felt like you were forcing this man to be with you.
It is rarely he who initiates anything in your relationship – it is you who most often send him the first SMS and who try to see him most of the time.
Sometimes you get the impression that this guy wouldn’t think of you if you didn’t contact him first, and that your relationship wouldn’t even exist if you weren’t there to nurture him.
5. He doesn’t care that you leave him
Another sign that this man is with you only for comfort, is basically, you know that this man would not chase you if you tried to leave him.
Sure, it’s not something he would tell you directly, but you know it’s the truth.
You know this guy wouldn’t make a splash if you left him, and you feel like you don’t make a big difference in this guy’s life.
