You’re spending more and more time apart. Having separate interests is good, being able to have alone time with friends every once in a while is healthy for a relationship. Using these separate interests to get away from your partner is not healthy. When you are trying to find reasons not to come home, that’s when you know your relationship is struggling.
Your beliefs have become drastically different. People change, sometimes you will find that your partner’s interests in movies or restaurants are opposite of yours. But sometimes people change to the point where their belief system is simply incompatible with yours.
You feel more like yourself when they aren’t around. There is a difference between enjoying the house to yourself for a day or two and constantly saying to yourself, “Thank god they won’t be home for the rest of the day.
Lack of communication. When your communication only involves niceties to avoid touchy subjects and arguments, you’re in trouble.
You are rarely intimate anymore. Physical intimacy is just as important as emotional intimacy. When there’s a lack of basic physical contact, that’s a serious issue.
Constant arguments. Every couple argues about issues here and there, but when you find yourself arguing constantly about issues that are deal breakers then it may be time to reevaluate the relationship.
Feelings of contempt towards your partner. You can’t stand anything they do. When you talk to each other, your body language may even consist of folded arms and aggressive stance.
If you’re experiencing some of these signs in your relationship, seek the help of a licensed counselor. Counseling can help you rebuild your relationship. Even if you feel things are beyond repair, counseling can still help you have a healthier breakup.
