Knowing when to say goodbye is the hardest thing to do. So, pour a cup of coffee and buckle up, because this topic will not be an easy one.
Everybody knows that women have this sixth sense where they feel ill at ease about something or someone.
Sometimes, he doesn’t have to say anything and you know that something isn’t right between the two of you.
Do you feel like your relationship is only getting worse? Likesome things don’t feel like they used to?
You are trying to find ways to justify that he still loves you, but there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
His behavior says it all, but you cannot just walk away; you put too much of yourself into the relationship that it feels like if you walk away, a part of you will be gone.
A man is like a treasure chest; you never know what is hiding inside when you open it.
They won’t tell you that they don’t love you directly to your face, especially if they still have some feelings toward you.
Those feelings may not be love, but he respects you enough that he doesn’t want to see you get hurt or maybe he just doesn’t want to address the elephant in the room.
A break-up would be the best possible solution but like everything else in life that involves feelings, breaking up isn’t that easy to do.
There are certain signs which clearly show that he doesn’t want to be with you anymore and most of them can be seen by keeping an eye on his body language.
Most of the time, however, women tend to ignore those signs, even when they are as clear as day.
If he says that he loves you, it doesn’t mean that it is forever.
Sure, your love was special, but let’s be real for a second; maybe passion played a significant role most of the time, and as we know, passion and love are different things.
If you stop for a second and think, “Maybe, I’m fooling myself believing he still loves me,” then maybe you can find a way to be less hurt afterward and prepare yourself for an imminent break-up.
Be brave, be courageous, and don’t try to avoid the inevitable. Face the facts and be the strong woman that you are.
If you see some of these signs in your relationship, save yourself the pain and hassle, and break up.
1. He ignores you
It is like you don’t even exist. When you’re around him, he doesn’t pay attention to you, to what you’re saying, doing, or anything.
He has started to live his life independently. Before that, everything that you did, you did together; it was a mutual agreement.
However, now things have changed, and you don’t even know if he has any plans with you.
When he’s around you, he acts strangely and does things as if you’re not even there.
If he needs something like a shirt that he cannot find, he would rather find it himself than ask for your help.
2. There is a lack of communication between the two of you
No matter how much you try, the other side just doesn’t feel like communicating with you.
According to several scientific papers, one of the major indicators that he doesn’t love you anymore is a lack of communication.
When you’re in a healthy relationship, when talking to your loved one, they will respond with positive feedback or at least some kind of feedback.
When times are hard, attempts to have healthy communication are nearly impossible and for the most part, you end up hurt or you receive negative feedback.
It’s like you’re hitting your head against a brick wall.
On the whole, you end up not having a conversation, but instead a monologue, because the other side doesn’t seem to listen at all.
3. He has started avoiding you
Have you ever had the feeling, even if you live in a small apartment, that you cannot find him? That’s not a coincidence.
He learned all your daily routines and your schedule and he knows when you’re going to be back home from work.
When a man stops loving you, he will try to avoid you at any cost and by doing so, he is actually giving you a sign – that he doesn’t want to be with you anymore.
You’re going to start spending less time together and that’s a huge red flag that the end of your relationship is near.
Another thing you should be aware of is if you have to wait a long time for him to reply to your messages.
Yes, it seems like a minor thing and maybe he doesn’t have time because of all the work that needs to be done, but let’s be real, everyone can take a five-minute break to reply.
4. He is rude to you
Sometimes, women tend to miss the most obvious signs that he wants to leave.
One of them is those harsh words that are directed toward you, whether they are said in public or private.
You really think that he just doesn’t think before he speaks but maybe he isn’t a ‘real man’, and he is afraid to admit that he doesn’t love you anymore.
Nevertheless, he uses his rude words and rude behavior as ways to show you that he isn’t interested in you anymore.
I know it’s hard to hear that, but hey, honesty is the best policy.
If you have noticed that he acts like this or tries to ‘put you in your place’ every time you have a conversation, do what is best for you and walk away from a man like that.
5. He tries to hide things from you
Picture a scenario and think about if you have ever been in this kind of situation:
He’s getting dressed, looks at his phone, smiles, replies quickly or goes to another room to reply.
Moments later, he’s at the door, swiftly rushing to get out and you are left alone, wondering where he went and with whom.
Let me tell you, this isn’t okay. If you have decided to live together, you must share everything, including where you are going and with whom.
That’s called common courtesy. You must be dedicated to your relationship full-time.
6. He doesn’t try to be involved in your life
Maybe there was a time when you did fun stuff together and he was enthusiastic and happy when going for a drink with you and your friends.
However, if he doesn’t love you anymore, he will try to avoid all of the above-mentioned.
All of a sudden, he’s not interested in your hobbies or he finds them unimportant.
If he doesn’t respect your hobbies or interests, then you are not important to him anymore.
It’s a sad truth, but it is the truth.
When you had a healthy relationship, he liked spending time with you and your friends, but now, everything seems to have changed.
Every time you ask him to go out, you receive negative feedback, so he is literally breaking up every connection that he has with you.
7. You are not attractive to him anymore
At the beginning of your relationship, sparks were flying and he couldn’t get enough of you, but now that seems to be lacking.
Physical interaction like hugging or kissing is one of the ways couples show their affection for each other.
If that is lacking in a relationship then it’s time to assess why you’re staying with him in the first place.
The need for physical attention is totally natural when two people are in love, and when that starts to diminish or burn out like a candle, then the emotions start to fade away too.
You have read many tips and tricks on how to get him back. However, darling, I’m sorry to say that love doesn’t work that way.
There is no point in getting him back because you can rarely change someone’s mind. You cannot make him love you anymore.
Nevertheless, it’s for the best for your relationship to end, because being in a relationship where only one always does the work always ends in disaster.
When your self-esteem decreases, when you feel like everything that he does is not enough for you, then it’s too late to save the situation.
There is no turning back.
The only thing that is left to be done is to walk away, start the process of healing yourself, start afresh, and later on, give someone new a chance to be ‘the one’.
You cannot put a Band-Aid on your heart and expect it to heal.
Be smart and leave when the time is right. If you can apply these signs to your man, leave; simply because you deserve better.
Being in such a toxic relationship is keeping you from finding the perfect one somewhere out there.
Everything has its limits, even a bad marriage or a broken relationship; the only question is what are your limits?
