Whether it is a romantic relationship, a friendship or a relationship with family members, it is always nice when being wanted and needed is reciprocated.
While other people may be comfortable telling a person they don’t want to be in a relationship with them anymore, others are unable to do so but may show signs that they are over the relationship. Relationship experts at a media enterprise devoted to the coverage of human behaviour and mental health Psychology Today share a few signs that may indicate that your partner may be over your relationship.
Making up excuses not to spend time together.
A one-sided relationship is not fair on the other partner especially if you’d rather not be with them anymore. If you’re in doubt on whether you want your relationship or not, the above-mentioned information hub adds that dreading to spend time and choosing to focus on other things instead of your partner may be a warning sign.
One of you wants to seek help while the other one doesn’t.
Working together to find solutions to the problems affecting your relationship is a sign that both partners want to save the relationship, shares the giant media enterprise. When one person is keen to look for ways while the other one isn’t, that may be a sign that they are over the relationship.
You no longer have the desire to grow together.
A relationship where you once saw you and your partner growing together may be over when you start seeing your future without them, says Psychology Today. This may be caused by growing up and wanting different things or other societal and emotional factors.
Physical intimacy does not appeal to you anymore.
One of the signs of healthy relationship is an active physical intimacy. Once physical intimacy does not appeal to you, that may be a major red flag, shares experts at relationship and bridal information hub, Brides. Lack of physical intimacy appeal may also be caused by medical reasons though, shares licensed counselor Suzanne Degges-White of Brides.
You’re not able to laugh together like you used to.
Known to establish and reconstruct a positive emotional atmosphere and a sense of connection between two people, laughter is one of the best medicines to any relationship. Not finding each other’s humour amusing anymore or the inability to connect through laughter should be alarming, shares Psychology Today experts.
