Relationships take a lot of work, and if we don’t pay close attention, we drift apart from each other, and once there is distance, it is hard to rebuild what you once had. Taking a step back reevaluating your relationship will allow you to notice the Most Common Signs You and Your Partner Are Growing Apart.
1-) The biggest sign there is a break in your relationship is you stop having sex. Without affection and intimacy, the relationship won’t survive. If you find you and your partner isn’t spending as much time in the bedroom, this is a true sign that your relationship is failing and needs mending!
2-) Do you find that you are spending more time apart than you are together? Spending time together and enjoying one another’s company is vital to any relationship. If you find that you aren’t including your partner in your plans, or have no desire to spend quality time together, it’s time to reevaluate your relationship.
3.) Are you finding that you often feel as if you’re being stuck in the same routine and are feeling “bored” or lacking something in your life? We all get stuck in the daily routine between work and home life, however, in order to keep your relationship alive, we need to make time for each other, go on adventures and keep your spark alive otherwise the relationship is headed to failure.
4.) Communication is key to any successful relationship, when we fail to keep lines of communication open, the relationship will fail. All relationships go through phases, and in order to keep a long-lasting relationship, open communication is vital for success!
5.) Frequent arguments are defiantly a red flag in any relationship. Continual arguments are a sure sign that something is wrong and needs to be repaired. Arguing can be a sign of overall dissatisfaction and should be closely evaluated in order to figure out the root of the problems or end the relationship for the benefit of both involved.
6.) If you find you or your partner has become unengaged and doesn’t react to concerns of your partnership, it again is time to revaluate your relationship. Nobody should ever try and find happiness in a relationship that isn’t equal, this will never work, and it doesn’t fail to either party.
7.) Criticism hurts; it hurts an awful lot, even more so when it continually is coming from your partner. If you find your partner continually placing blame onto you, or if you criticize one another, this is not healthy and causes undue emotional distress and hurt feelings. When allowing this cycle to continue, you will start to question their respect and trust.
8.) If you’re not feeling supported by your partner, this is another red flag which needs attention. Relationships are a partnership where we lift each other up during hard times and you are supposed to feel a sense of safety, security and belonging to. If this is lacking from your relationship, we need to be mindful of our feelings, as we should never lack support from any genuine relationship.
