the tables and end the relationship first, on your terms.
Breakup Warning Sign #1: Your partner starts distancing himself either
physically or emotionally.
The first red flag is any kind of distancing behavior, either physical or
emotional. “Physical distancing” occurs when your partner seems to be making
less and less time for you. All of a sudden, he may seem to be avoiding the
typical “couple” activities you’re used to doing together.
subtle, but much stronger indicator that things are heading south in your
relationship. Have you noticed any changes in the way that your partner
communicates with you, such as a lack of eye contact or a different voice tone?
Have you noticed that most of your conversations are now boring and trivial?
Does he avoid discussing future plans for the two of you? These are all good

One of the most obvious signs of a troubled relationship is when your partner
has rearranged his entire schedule in order to spend less time with you. Now,
sometimes a promotion at work, for instance, might be to blame but if you find
that he’s consistently stuck at the office until the wee hours of the morning,

when your partner starts spending time with a new group of friends. If his new
crew consists of a bunch of happily married, church-going choir boys who wake
up early on Sundays to take their children to little-league, you probably won’t

reduction in the amount of fights and arguments in your relationship could mean
that your partner has started to minimize his emotional investment. Withdrawing
quickly from confrontations is a common behavior of those who are either

Since most people dislike the guilt that comes along with being “the bad
guy,” one very common behavior is the act of purposely starting petty fights
and pushing your partner’s buttons in the hopes that they will flip out and say
or do something that would make them look like the bad guy. Once this happens,
the instigator will have an excuse to justify their desire to leave the
relationship. our ears should perk up if you find your partner suddenly picking
petty fights and blowing up on you for no reason – even more so when his
arguments are fueled by blind rage and make no logical sense whatsoever.

When your partner takes “physical distancing” to the next level, you will

in your relationship says a lot about the strength of your romantic connection.
Loving physical contact is one of the most powerful ways of connecting with
someone and when it starts to vanish from a relationship, it acts like a crack
in the ceiling that allows the rain to start coming through.

factors, but if you find that your man has stopped making advances altogether,

relationship. It’s even worse when he resists of all of your advances, as well.
