Relationships are hard work! They aren’t easy to maintain and if you don’t know the signs that things are in trouble you may be in for a shocking surprise when things seem to suddenly end. Sometimes it becomes obvious that you are nearing the end of your relationship but sometimes things are a little bit more subtle. If you pay attention to the signals you may be able to save your relationship. If you are noticing any of these things in your current relationship it may be time to start planning your exit strategy or making the decision to try to save things before the inevitable end.
1. Everyone else starts to look better
If you start seeing every person you come across as being more attractive than the person you are with then things aren’t heading in the right direction. Everyone likes to look once in a while but if you are constantly finding yourself staring at other people and thinking how attractive they are and how great it would be to be in a relationship with them then you probably are with the wrong person to begin with.
2. Date night is no fun
If you have experienced the downfall of date night then you know what we’re talking about. Imagine that you are super excited for your scheduled date night but as you are hanging out with your partner you get the feeling that they are just trying to survive the evening so they can get through the date. If you feel a sense a dread being around your partner or you get the feeling that they feel that way around you it’s a sure sign that the end is near.
3. You stop sharing
If you have to try to pull big news out of your partner then it’s time to find a new partner. If you have stopped sharing things that would considered big news with each other then what’s the point of being together. If you find yourself constantly stumbling upon big news that your partner should ‘want’ to share with you then it is time to make a change. If you didn’t know that your significant other just got promoted then the new job might not be the only thing they are looking to change in the future.
