Does spending time with your partner feel more like completing a prison sentence than being in a relationship? If things have gotten to a point where being with your partner is no longer enjoyable, then, something is clearly amiss. Your relationship could be dying or headed to the point of no return. If you don’t even care about the current state of your relationship, that’s an even stronger indicator that you and your significant other won’t be together for very long. Here are 5 signs that your relationship is dead.
1. Arguments go unresolved
It takes effort to work on healing unresolved anger. However, once a relationship starts to die, you may become too tired to fight anymore, and let old wounds fester. When anger continues to reside in your relationship, something is wrong. When you are in love, you’ll do whatever it takes to find out what’s wrong and fix it. That’s why letting anger just sit and rot out the core of your union is a tell-tale sign that one or both of you is done with the relationship.
2. You aren’t as attracted
You aren’t as drawn to your partner as you once were. When things between you were going well, all it took was a look or even your partner’s voice, and you would be filled with excitement. But your partner just doesn’t do it for you anymore. Instead, you find yourself becoming more attracted — both physically and emotionally — to someone else.
3. You try to find replacements for your partner
As things begin to go downhill, you start to invest more time at work, in your children, or even the family pet. You’re desperately grasping to get your love needs met in someone or something else. As the distance between you grows, you actually feel relief and happiness. Time away from your partner makes you feel alive.
4. You can’t stand your partner’s touch
There was a time when your partner’s touch would send shivers down your spine. Now, all it does is make your skin crawl. You find any and every excuse to avoid physical contact, and your partner is starting to notice.
Is it?, your relationship is definitely in trouble.
