All good things must come to an end, whether it’s a lifetime or a blink of an eye.
When it comes to your relationship, you need to assess whether love still exists when you feel like it’s over.
Love is a complicated thing.
No one has ever been able to explain it since it’s something you feel.
Some people feel this differently from others, which is why there is no one size fits all issues of the heart.
However, if you’re paying attention, you can tell when love has changed for better or worse.
As you probably know, love is never really something you can plan for, and you can wait a long time before it happens to you.
When that happens, it’s an incredible feeling.
As time passes, we feel comfortable.
It’s something that just happens – especially if you’re not paying attention.
Comfort, however, is good.
Enjoying comfort is detrimental to your relationship – often leading to love slowly fading away.
If you’re not sure of your status, keep the following 10 telltale signs in mind when evaluating your current relationship.
You may be strongly attached to your partner or in a sticky situation that reveals a loveless relationship.
1 . “I love you” becomes “I love you”.
It may seem like a comfortable status, but you should pay attention to an animated “I love you”, which turns into a xoxo “I love you”.
It’s extremely easy to fall into the trap of comfort and laziness where even if you don’t mean to, you start taking advantage of your partner.
It’s an extra letter that takes a second to say.
Do not refrain from using it.
2 . You Avoid Conversations About The Future
Dreaming about the future is one thing, but talking about it with your partner is an absolute must if you see yourself spending the future together.
It is extremely important for the health of your relationship to talk about future plans, including marriage, vacations, or even children.
These are the things that help the relationship to grow, and the moment you stop, you have to pay attention.
3 . Hugs Become Less
Hugging your partner is a great sign of feeling love and giving it.
Maybe you’re convinced that you don’t like giving or receiving caresses, it’s fair.
However, hugs don’t necessarily mean hours and hours of lying together and lying on the couch.
It could simply mean a tight hug in the morning, or finding yourself clutching your partner while you sleep, and vice versa.
4 . Meaningful Conversations Become Less
Ever heard of couples with poor communication skills that last a lifetime?
In that case, there’s not enough to use as a strong example.
The reason for this is that most women need to be heard and would like to know what their partners think.
If you’ve stopped having real conversations, it’s time to reevaluate why you stopped communicating.
Maybe you need to start before you completely lose it.
5 . Pickles Become More Frequent
The first sign of anyone who is angry, especially within a relationship, is the constant presence of nit-picking, which means picking on irrelevant things, and looking for small, unimportant flaws to criticize unnecessarily.
Women tend to do this more, typically reacting to all situations in this specific way.
It’s important to recognize this and find out why you’re so angry.
Have an adult conversation with your partner about this.
Who knows, maybe it’s easily fixable.
6 . Affection Feels Uncomfortable
When you’re in love, all you want is to hug and be hugged by the person who has your heart.
However, the opposite is true when you stop liking it.
Whether on your side or your partner’s, you need to find out why you’re playing a role in your relationship.
Maybe you gained weight or your partner developed bad breath.
Either way, affection is important.
7 . You Don’t Feel The Need To Fix Things
This could mean the end of your relationship and it could be due to some factors.
Maybe you’ve taken too many chances or been hurt too many times.
Maybe you’re not in love anymore and that’s the easiest way out.
Whatever the reason, not wanting to fix things on your or your partner’s side is a telltale sign of trouble.
8 . Spending Time Together Is an Uphill Task
I don’t mean being constantly next to each other 24 hours a day – that will suffocate anyone.
However, even if you don’t get to spend a lot of time together, they need to want to be together should be there.
He must want to spend Saturday night with you, enjoying your company instead of hanging out with strangers in a nightclub and vice versa.
The minute it becomes a chore is the minute you are in trouble.
9 . You dream of a different life
Finally, if you’re constantly dreaming of a different life that doesn’t involve him, or he’s doing the same, that’s where you need to have ‘the conversation’.
Maybe you have different dreams or goals and don’t know how to reconcile everything.
Couples who want to together always make way.
There will be compromises to be made on both sides, but moving in the same direction is key to a lasting relationship.
Not all relationships last, which isn’t a bad thing.
You may find yourself in a specific relationship to teaches you valuable lessons to prepare you for the next relationship.
The key to figuring this out is being honest with yourself about the relationship — and including your partner in that conversation.
Although communication seems to be minor, if there is any kind of conversation you should have, this is it.
So gather all your courage and respect your partner enough to have the conversation.
It might not be a fun experience, but at least you’re handling it with dignity.
This is something no one can take away from you.
