Now, the butterflies have flown long ago and all the fondness and tenderness is also different.
Whether or not you believe in fairy-tale endings, you probably had some idea of how you would find your perfect partner and have a flawless relationship just like in the movies. Even though you and your partner have traveled together in life for a great amount of time and still have affection towards each other, you’ve realized that maybe now its more comfort than crazy.
Even though you and your partner have traveled together in life for a great amount of time and still have affection towards each other, you’ve realized that maybe now its more comfortable love than crazy love.
Below are ten signs to help you find where you stand in the relationship, listed by Vt.
1. You are attracted to other people again
Sure, at the beginning your eyes were magnetized to your partner’s body, but now, not only do you look for more attractive people but you feel yourself being flirty again.
2. You used to have so much more sex than now
You’ve guessed it. Lack of sex is most definitely a sign that you have had better times with your partner.
3. He is more your best friend than your lover
Your significant other of course has to be your best friend first, and someone who supports you and takes care of you. But if you go shopping or choose drapes for your bathroom more often than you make love, it shows that you have entered the comfort friendship zone a long time ago.
4. What once was cute, now is annoying
You used to be crazy together and not follow the rules. Your partner’s weird habits that you once found very attractive and cute are now just are annoying you all the time. If you find yourself being irritated in your partner’s company, that my dear is a signal that is not to be missed.
5. You can’t stand other couples
Probably you remember that you used to find other couples adorable and lovely because you could relate to them. But now things have changed. The face you made when you saw that kissing couple on the tube, uh, disgusting. Eh well, unfortunately, that’s bad news for your relationship.
6.You used to want to buy time so you could talk endlessly
What were you two talking about, constantly? How are you not bored of each other? These were the questions people used to bother you with. You used to talk on the phone right after you separated to go to work. You used to stay till dawn having conversations about the universe, your conversation felt like making a purer kind of love. But, not any more, right? Now, it seems like you have just drifted apart and your conversations have dried up.
7. You can’t stop fighting
No one is saying that fighting isn’t normal. All we are saying is that if great arguments and fights replaced your loving scenario, it is a cause for concern for you and your partner.
8. No more I love yous
The number of ‘I love you’ during the day has obviously declined. That should not be happening in a healthy relationship.
9. Something doesn’t feel quite right
Hugged in the middle of an empty room and feeling like you have it all? Sounds familiar? Sure, yeah but past reference. Compared to now, not only does the spark appear to be missing but most definitely things do not feel the same.
10. You can’t envision a future with them anymore
You probably have one old folder in your computer where you used to collect pictures and ideas for your wedding, house, kids, outfits, etc. Looking back, you spent many nights talking about life together, but now, unfortunately, you can’t even imagine spending 10 days vacation alone with them.
You have passed through all the reconciliation phases and all the start overs, but nothing seems to change. If you checked all the boxes or at least half of them you know the answer. Even though you are ending one part of your relationship that doesn’t mean that you can’t stay friends.
