10 Signs Your Relationship Is Coming To An End

Have you got that breakup feeling? You know something’s not quite right in your relationship but you’re hoping you’re just being paranoid. However, if these 10 things are happening in your relationship, you can expect your relationship to come to an end in the near future.

  1. You have to pull words out of his mouth. Remember when he used to talk to you about anything and everything? Those were the good old days because now it’s like you need a dentistry qualification to get him to spit out the words. You might even have to learn about new happenings in his life via social media. Ugh. When people start communicating less than they used to, it’s a bad sign.
  2. He’s become “forgetful.” You had to send him a text to remind him it was your sister’s birthday and ask if he was still coming to the party, only for him to claim that he “forgot all about it.” Wow. Same for how you had plans and he blew you off. What the heck? He hasn’t forgotten about you. He’s conveniently checking out of the relationship.
  3. He gets angry when you’re romantic. Ever noticed how your boyfriend becomes moody/angry when you say something sweet or romantic to him? There you are complimenting his eyes and he’s rolling them at you. It’s clear he doesn’t want the mushy stuff anymore, and might not even want to call you by your cute nickname anymore. Ouch. Soon he’ll be avoiding your affectionate advances.
  4. He’s the “i dunno” king. When you mention future plans, he can never commit to them. He’ll always say he doesn’t know if he can still take that holiday you guys were planning or if he can even see you next week Saturday, even though you’d both previously been excited about your plans. If he can’t even commit to quality time, it’s clear that you’re no longer his priority.
  5. You never go out anymore. While it’s cool to be able to hang out at home with your partner and enjoy each other’s company, it’s not a good sign if your partner never wants to do anything new and exciting with you. It’s especially a warning sign if he’s having fun with everyone else (thanks for the info, social media).
  6. He’s always putting you down. This is a huge sign that not only is your relationship about to crash and burn but that he’s a toxic a-hole. Why does a guy start nitpicking at you and insulting you? When he’s too much of a coward to end things so he’s trying to push you to do it instead. Don’t let him break you down – send him packing! You don’t need this guy in your life.
  7. You’re jut so bored. You always used to have fun with your partner, but now it’s like you’d rather hang out on your own every single time. When things always feel dull around your partner and it’s not just because the new restaurant you’re checking out is lame, then you could be moving apart from each other. It’s a good idea to take some time for yourself and figure out what you want.
  8. Your fights remain unresolved. If you guys always fight lately but you never actually resolve your relationship issues, it’s like you don’t have anything left to fight for. He storms out of the room or you brush things under the carpet and then it’s back to your relationship routine a few hours or days later. Meanwhile, all those unresolved issues are building up. Sooner or later, they’ll explode. Yikes.
  9. You don’t feel appreciated. When your partner stops noticing all the value you bring to his or her life, you’ll start to feel taken for granted. No one wants to be in a relationship where they’re ignored or feel like they’re replaceable.
  10. Your nerves are shot. You shouldn’t feel those horrid nerves when your partner said he’d text, as though you’re worried that he won’t, especially if you’ve been dating for months. If your nerves are always jangling around him, that’s a sign that you can’t be comfortable and maybe the trust is gone to hell. Your relationship’s definitely on shaky ground, so it’s time to do something.
