A relationship takes a lot of effort to sustain, with the hope that it lasts forever. While it does sometimes, other times, it does not.
Some signs are undeniably evident in a relationship that tells us where it is heading. It can be difficult to accept the truth and move on with life but these signs are there to explain things we don’t understand.
What signs show where a relationship is heading? Have you been noticing these signs without being aware?
Here are 8 warning signs that show a relationship is coming to an end.
You don’t talk anymore
When you and your significant other find no interest in talking, then it is a warning sign. If they reply with a word or sentence after you try to start a conversation, it shows that your relationship is taking a different turn.
You notice their flaws more than their strengths
We often see the good in someone than the bad when we’re in love. When you forget all the positive qualities that got you attracted to your partner in the first place, it could be a warning that things are heading the wrong way.
Viewing the faults of your significant other without finding anything positive to say about your partner is a sign that the relationship is about to end.
You do not miss each other
You haven’t seen each other for days and even weeks but there’s no eagerness in seeing yourselves again. If you’re not excited to see after being apart for a while, then something is wrong.
When something remarkable happens, you do not tell them first
You’ve just been awarded a contract or you just got promoted at work and you want to share the good news with someone you love and cherish. You pick up your phone to make a call and you think of sharing the good news with someone else before your partner.
This shows that they’re no longer your best friend and closest confidant, which is a bad sign!
They bring you sadness instead of happiness
You hear their knock on the door or their favourite song is being played a block away and sadness suddenly seeps into your heart. When your partner brings you sadness instead of happiness, it’s a sign that something is wrong.
You’re no longer doing your fun activities together
There would always be a ritual that every couple holds as theirs. For example, having a game night every Friday night, watching movies on Thursday night, making pancakes every Saturday morning, etc. When one of you starts to avoid this fun activity, it’s a sign that something has gone wrong.
The past is better than the present
You reflect on the past and it seems very different from the present. It gives you a nostalgic feeling. You keep wondering where things went wrong because the feeling is completely different from when you both started.
You don’t talk about the future anymore
People who are madly in love with each other will talk about the future enthusiastically and with so much eagerness. They talk about their career, goals, future aspirations, dream house, and location, whether they would have kids and how many they plan on having.
When the future terrifies you and you do not talk about it, it is an indication that your relationship is heading somewhere else.
Ignoring these warning signs and staying in an unhappy relationship is not ideal. Instead of wasting your time and effort, and even risking heartbreak, take a bold step and confront the situation!
