Subtle Signs That Predicts the End of Your Relationship

27 Subtle Signs That Will Predict the End of Your Relationship

Relationship is a mutual thing. It's bad if you're the one giving and your partner isn't. It's in fact worse if you are the only one receiving and your partner isn't. Needless to say that it is a two way thing: in giving we receive. Simply put. If it's not mutual, then there's deceit and where there's deceit, the relationship is bound to crash.

When it comes to relationships, some signs spell certain doom.  There's doom lurking around such relationship if these under-listed signs continues. There's seldom a full week of peace; every conversation is a barrage of insults and cursing. There's a licence to cheat without remorse. No room for epiphany or some sort of retreat. Definitely, if you're leaving together, someone is bound to sleep on the couch more often than in the bed. There's also the case of bed divorce. This is not healthy; better you're done than persist hopelessly. This is not to encourage divorce, but if there's a need for temporal separation, so be it.

Sometimes we are so engrossed in the act of relationship itself that we do not take note when the relationship is nosediving, but not every relationship nosedive is so clearly written out. Some tells, in fact, are more subtle than a mouse—and that doesn't mean they're any less significant. Here are the surefire warning signs that will predict the end of your relationship to watch out for.

1. There's Close to None or Less of Physical Contact

The art of deep hugs, cuddling and the rest of it springs great feeling. It speaks louder than voice. It is an essential ingredient of a healthy relationship. Physical contact does not mean sex all the time - don't get it twisted. It means to express to your partner that you're there as a shoulder to lift 'her' up and as an umbrella for 'him' in rainfall. It means security, assurance and togetherness. If these simple physical contact are missing in your relationship, then it's a warning sign that the relationship is coming to an end. If you can talk this over with you partner, the better. There's also the medical benefits of physical contact in relationships; It releases oxytocin, a hormone that is excellent for the heart and makes you feel connected to your partner. It drops levels of cortisol, the so-called "stress hormone," and triggers dopamine, the pleasure hormone.

2. True Lovers Kiss Right and Deep. There's Something In the Kiss

If you pay attention carefully, emotions are easily revealed through kissing. It is one vital way to read your partner's body language. Kissing is a boost - emotionally, physiologically and biologically. If your partner kisses you with less enthusiasm, it's a red flag. I am not talking about a one-time notice, but if it does persist, then it's a sign that the relationship is coming to an end.

3. Using Harsh Syllables - Agitated and Aggressive

If your partner starts talking to you aggressively and it's becoming constant, and for no reason picks quarrel with you with ease and there's no known pressure whatsoever,  then it's a surefire sign that the relationship is coming to an end. Sure, brevity is the soul of wit, but when your partner talks to you like he or she is being charged by the syllable, it can be a strong sign that all is not well. While it's possible that your significant other could be stressed or busy, an often agitated and aggressive tone could mean that you are the source of their anger—even if you did nothing to deserve it.

4. The Laughter is Gone

Smiles and laughter is good, but laughter shared together is awesome. Everyone knows that laughter is the best medicine. If there's very little of laughter in your relationship, your partnership could be ailing. If you've come to notice that you no longer laugh as you used to and there seems to be very little joy in the relationship, it's not a good sign.

5. You're Beginning to Have Other Prospect

It's not a good sign when you start thinking about the possibility and the probability of the goodness in another person's company. It's a sign that you are not satisfied with your present relationship. The thought of being with someone new is an exciting concept. It's good to know that you've still got it and have options, but if you're spending too much time thinking about those options and what it would be like to be with someone—or anyone else, it's cause for concern. That's not a good thing for the relationship. It's a red flag and a surefire sign that the relationship is coming to an end.

6. You Feel Lonely—Even When You're Together

If you're not feeling supported or loved, it can profoundly impact how you're feeling in your relationship. "If you feel alone even when you are together and you feel like your partner doesn't have your back, it's incredibly lonely," says Sonya Kreizman, the co-founder and CEO of JCrush, a dating app for Jewish singles.

7. The Fighting Has Completely Stopped

While constant arguing is no bueno in a relationship, you should be able to muster up the energy to engage in healthy debate with your partner over a hot-button issue. Small disagreements help you grow as a couple, making you both happier in the relationship in the long run.

Co-existing is a silent killer. When both of you become indifferent and agreeable instead of fighting with passion for what you believe should change in the relationship, it's a sign the relationship might be heading towards its end." Some small disagreements help you grow as a couple, making you both happier in the relationship in the long run.

8. You See Your Relationship As An Obligation

According to a 2016 study published in Current Psychology, people are more likely to stay in relationships that they've already invested time and effort in. It's the relationship version of the investment phenomenon referred to as "sunk cost effect." A prior investment leads to a continuous investment, even when the decision doesn't make you happy. If your relationship feels like a bad bet that you're doubling down on, it's time to fold 'em—not hold 'em.

9. You Keep Your Distance

People who like each other don't have problems being in close physical proximity to each other. If you and your partner are drifting apart, you're much less likely to position yourself close to them.

10. You're Literally out of Sync

Often, happy couples in great relationships talk about being "in sync" with one another. Well, it turns out that being figuratively in lock-step with your partner can manifest itself literally. The goal is for couples to walk with their feet side by side on an invisible line. When this walking pattern is disrupted, it indicates that there is a disconnect between the couple.

11. You Pat Each Other's Backs

There's a time and a place for a pat on the back (for example, after you hit a home run in an interoffice softball game). The back pat is a perennial gesture of encouragement. Here's what a back pat is not: Sexy.

When a romantic partner is always giving you pats on the back as opposed to intimate embraces, it could spell doom for your relationship. If your partner begins to pat you on the back during a hug, it immediately desexualizes it. Let's face it, you and your partner aren't just teammates.

12. You're Throwing up Hand Signs

Did you know that if your partner favors their left hand over their right when making gestures, it could mean that things aren't in the best place. Too many left-handed gestures are associated with someone being uncomfortable with what they're saying to you. If you notice your partner is using their left hand more, things certainly aren't going right. Take heed!

13. Your Pupils Don't Dilate for Each Other

Enduring sexual attraction is important for most healthy, long-term relationships to stand the test of time. When it comes to figuring it out if you still have the hots for each other, look to the eyes. When you're sexually attracted to someone, your pupils will dilate in a moment of intimacy. It happens subconsciously, so it's a good indicator of your significant other's interest in you.

14. You Treat Each Other With a Light Touch

When a relationship is troubled, or there is not that much emotional commitment, we tend to touch only with our fingertips or touch ever so briefly: this is called 'distal touching' and is our subconscious way of touching those we dislike or can barely tolerate. When you or your partner begins to touch less—or merely with the fingertips—loving sentiments have probably been withdrawn.

15. You're Constantly Distracted

It's hard to hang on your partner's every word years into a relationship. But if your thing is going to last, you should be able to get through a conversation without looking at your watch or scrolling through your Instagram feed. Once spending time with a partner feels like an imposition, rather than something to enjoy, there are more significant issues at play.

16. You Want "Me Time" Most of the Time

Having some space and snagging some alone time is healthy. But when you're actively avoiding spending time or sharing space with your partner, the jig's up, friend. If it feels like your spouse values everyone and everything over you and they don't make the time for the things that are important to you, despite your efforts in effective communication, that's a huge issue. Y

17. You Furrow Your brow

Contempt is one of the leading causes of divorce. Contempt is the most destructive negative behavior within relationships, whether overt or covert. Essentially, contempt behaviors communicate to your partner, 'I'm better than you, and I don't care about your perspective'. Contempt is often the result of negative thoughts about your partner over time.

One of the clearest indicators of such criticism? Furrowed brows.

18. You Roll Your Eyes

Another display of contempt? Eye-rolling. Regularly rolling your eyes is a powerful indication that the relationship may need outside help. Stopping the eye-rolling is the first step, but getting at the reasons behind it is an essential move for solidifying your bond.

19. You Imagine Divorce—a Lot

If a fight with your partner is all it takes to start thinking about pushing the eject button, things may be unsalvageable.

20. You'd Rather Be Doing Anything Else

Do you and your partner relish your respective reviews of the day's events? If they tend to fidget, play with their phone, or worse, completely ignore you, the signs that you'll be attending your Silver Wedding Party may be slim.

21. You're Actively Looking to Sweat the Small Stuff

When couples seem to be arguing over the most insignificant things, they are probably looking for that proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back. At this point, there's often a lot of passive-aggressive behavior creeping in like subtle little jabs to push him or her away. There's so much resentment built up that it's tough to come back."

22. You Purse Your Lips When You Talk

Next time you're having a robust discussion with your partner, don't just focus on what's coming out of your mouth but what you're doing with it. Pursed lips can indicate extreme anxiety, withholding information, and withholding aggressio. When you are nervous, your mouth becomes dry, and you lick your lips and swallow as you struggle to find the right words to say.

23. You Resist The idea Of Going To Therapy

If your relationship is crumbling before your very eyes, and one or both of you shows little interest in trying to save it, it's a surefire sign your time together is up. Refusing to get therapy all but says: "I'm not willing to fix this." Stick a fork in your relationship. It's done.

24. Your Politics Don't Align

There have been plenty of eras in which holding opposing political views to your partner was totally fine. In 2020, however, it's hard to see how two people on the extremes of the political spectrum could see eye-to-eye.

25. Your Libidos Aren't Matching Up

When it comes to predicting relationship failure, mismatched libidos can often be a canary in the coal mine. Couples are severely challenged when there's a libido gap that cannot be bridged. When one partner feels persistently rejected, and the other partner feels persistently pressured, it's a recipe for failure.  Many relationships fail due to desire discrepancy."

26. All of Your Leisure Activities Happen Separately

Couples in healthy relationships watch TV together, go out together, and play video games together. In short, they love each other's company. If all leisure activities happen separately or require the use of earphones, it's bad news.

27. You Already Know the Truth

Denial. As they say, it's not just a river in Egypt. And if part of you knows that things are in a tailspin, it's time to cut ties. If your instinct or gut keeps you feeling worried, it's a huge sign that something is up and needs to be dealt with by getting out of this negative mental space.

Foundation of Your Relationship

The foundation of your relationship really matters. If you started on a false ground, it definitely got to end before it really started.
