The signs that shows he doesn’t love you anymore. If you’re starting to notice that your relationship isn’t what it used to be, despite all your efforts, and you feel like he doesn’t care anymore, it’s perhaps time to re-evaluate.
Lately, he hasn’t been talking to you as usual. It’s more like he is becoming withdrawn; he doesn’t text or reply to your messages and whenever he does, he just replies with a one word syllable, “okay”.
Are you faced with this situation or something similar? You might feel your man is pushing you away and doesn’t want to be with you anymore even if he hasn’t said it outright. Perhaps you’ve noticed some changes in him that you just can’t explain.
It might be painful (okay, it will definitely be painful) but it’s better to know so that you can define where your relationship stands.
Signs He Doesn’t Love You Anymore
• Lack Of Communication
This is one of the most painful signs he doesn’t love you anymore. Communication is key in every relationship and whenever there is a lack of it or it isn’t effective, the relationship has a higher tendency of falling apart. Effective in the sense that he is not ignoring you but the interest to talk that he used to have just isn’t there anymore.
When you notice this over a prolonged period of time, even after putting in efforts to fix it, then you should realize that it’s likely his feelings have changed towards you.
• Giving Unnecessary Excuses To Avoid You
So normally, you guys loved being together at all times but nowadays, he gets irritated at your every breath, not to talk of hanging out together; girl, this is definitely a bad sign
Sometimes, in order to avoid going out with you, he might give unnecessary excuses or make something up which you obviously can see through in most cases. This is one of the more subtle signs he doesn’t love you anymore.
• He Gives You Little Or No Attention
Another point of the signs that he doesn’t love you anymore is that, he does not want to be involved in your life. Whenever you want to talk to him, he says he’s busy and when he does, he doesn’t even give you attention; he avoids your eyes, probably picks up his phone while you “rant and ramble
He Keeps Forgetting Special Events
Special events such as your birthday, valentine’s day, anniversary and other special days are rarely forgotten by those that cherish and love you, not to talk of the person you are in relationship with. Also, if on his birthday, he decides to spend it with his friends and does not give you any time throughout the day, this is a sure red flag.
Getting Angry With No Definite Reason
Perhaps your man has always been a patient fellow, always easy going with people and even more with you but then, you suddenly notice that he has been getting angry and yelling at you for every little thing you do, and might sometimes, feign being angry so as to push you away.
He is always doing things himself because according to him, you make him angry. He is likely trying to opt out of that relationship and he is giving you every reason to do the same.
• He Does Not Care About Your Feelings
Regardless of what a man is going through, he would still care about his lady’s feelings. He might not be as sweet and loving as usual, but he would still try to know what’s going on with you. He would comfort you and try to make you feel better.
He might have little or no interest in whatever she’s feeling. Although he might be aware of what’s going through her mind, he pretends to be unaware – simply oblivious
• Being Rude With His Words
He starts to use harsh words on you without caring if he is hurting your feelings. He doesn’t filter his words, he just says them the way he wants and sometimes, he does this intentionally. Also he might reply to you in a sarcastic manner. For him, all he knows is that he wants to leave the relationship but might not know how to put it in words, so he just uses this impolite behavior to blurt out his feelings.
• He Stops Apologizing For His Wrong Doings
Even though he is aware of what he did wrong, he ignores it totally and does not apologize. While on the other hand, he wants you to apologize quickly and if you don’t, he might use that as a reason to break off the relationship.
Just any reason becomes good enough to pick up a fight with you – one which would eventually lead to a misunderstanding between you both.
• He Begins To Compare You With Other Women
With any little flaw you make, he uses that as an opportunity to bring up other women, especially his ex. No man who loves his girlfriend or wife would compare them with any other; instead he would learn to accept her flaws, while helping to make her a better person.
• He Asks For A Break
Each person needs his\her own space from time to time to think and reflect, or just “me time” and this helps a lot in many relationships.
However, when either side starts to crave their alone time more than usual, then something is wrong and needs to be addressed.
• He Stops Saying Loving Words
Although we cannot say all men do this because they might push for the fact that they believe in actions rather than words, quite a number of them do. Words of affirmation of love soften a partner’s heart, so people tend to use it a lot.
The absence of loving words such as “I love you”, and “I miss you” for a very long period of time, with no action to be meted out in its stead, is a big but sometimes subtle sign he doesn’t love you anymore.
• Being Secretive
For instance; excusing himself to pick a call, not allowing you have access to his phone as usual, tilting his phone so that you won’t be able to see his messages when you sit beside him, going out without letting you know of his whereabouts and whenever you ask him about it, he “puts you in your place”.
If your man starts behaving this way, it is either he is stressed or carrying a burden that is obviously too heavy for him to bear alone. And for the unpalatable part, he probably wants to opt out of the relationship As soon As Possible.
