How To Know When Your Partner’s Not Interested Anymore
July 31, 2017 (No Comments) by Dean Fitzgerald

The crushing blow of knowing that someone who you care about and have strong feelings for (maybe even love), doesn’t feel the same way about you anymore is a real slap in the face. It begins with a suspicion which slowly but surely festers into paranoia, and a sense that everything you do is off-putting or annoying to them.

Of course, this isn’t always the case, but when you sense that your partner has lost interest in you and your relationship, the signs begin to reveal themselves gradually. Without a doubt, there are some tell-tale red flags that may be lost in their subtlety. If you see these signs, then something needs to change if you genuinely wish for your relationship to continue.

They No Longer Find You Funny

A strong sign that someone is interested in you romantically revolves around their reaction to your humour. Telling a stupid story with a weak punchline suddenly becomes hilarious when you’re trying to get with someone, and little inside jokes in a relationship exhibit the bond you share.

When they no longer react to your inside jokes, or start rolling their eyes when you tell a stupid story, it’s a giveaway that they are becoming tired of your humour. If this happens, don’t panic. The best way to make inside jokes and stupid stories funny is to get fresh ones. Going on adventures that naturally create these stories and jokes will do you the world of good.

You Annoy Them (But not in a cute way)

In a classic episode of The Simpsons, Homer annoys Marge to no end before claiming it is part of the reason why she’s with him, simply by saying “Ha ha, you love me”. It’s heart-warming and adorable, and typifies a happy relationship. It’s a common move for savvy couples to stay on each other’s good sides.

If your significant other is losing interest in you, those little annoying things that you could wave away with ‘Ha ha, you love me’ are now piercing their brain and royally pissing them off. Your insistence that it’s part of your charm only makes things worse, as they associate you with being annoying, snowballing into a vicious circle. You annoy them, they get annoyed being with you, meaning you annoy them more, they associate seeing you with being annoyed, so on and so forth.

If this begins to occur, cut the cutesy stuff and try not to intentionally annoy them, even as a joke. This doesn’t mean being no fun at all, but give them a chance to miss your annoying traits before making that triumphant return.

They Don’t Want To Do Things With You

A great part about relationships is that it gives you another person to do things with. You can go on a day trip around the country, explore your local area, go on that nature walk you’ve always wanted to, and it all comes off as being naturally cute.

An obvious sign that your partner is losing interest occurs when you make suggestions to explore new places and all of your ideas are rejected. Not only that, but they never seem to want to meet up with you to do almost anything. This is a difficult scenario, as it is hard to convince a partner to meet up when they seemingly have no willingness to do so.

Perhaps to counteract this, you could ask them if there is anything they want to do, or anywhere they would like to go. Letting them choose the activity could reignite their interest in doing things with you.

They Start Arguments For No Reason

Maybe you were eating louder than usual, or were saying the words while reading, or maybe your breathing just sounded weird. They will want to fight about it. You may try and apologise, but that only exacerbates the situation, as you admitting your wrongdoing exposes you as doing it on purpose. Either way, you’re in the wrong.

At this stage, it begins to border on emotional abuse. You shouldn’t be willing to deal with someone who picks every moment to start a shouting match. You don’t deserve that. This stage should lead to the eventual ending of the relationship, as they have turned from disinterested to downright offensive towards you. You’re better of breaking things off when you notice this as a regular occurrence.

For the most part, there are ways to win back the interest of your partner, but it requires hard work, communication, and patience. Most importantly, you need to recognise when the relationship is in jeopardy, and realise when the time has come to walk away.
