4 Surprising Signs He Wants to Break Up!
Have you been having more and more bad days in your relationship lately? Girl, I know where you’re coming from. They say that conflict is healthy in a relationship, but how do you know if your relationship is heading down the road to ruin? Here are a few surprising signs he wants to break up.
1 – He Doesn’t Seem to Be Interested in Your Relationship.
Maybe you’ve been off recently. Maybe you’ve even been having problems. But if your boyfriend seems completely uninterested in solving those problems, then you should probably take this as one of the signs he wants to break up.
Talk with him and see if there is something going on. Maybe he is feeling depressed about something in his life, or that spark just seems to have faded. If the two of you really want to, you can recapture the love you once had.
2 – He Has a New Female Friend.
Although it is possible for men and women to have platonic friendships, an emotional affair can quickly get out of hand. In some ways he might be testing the waters to see if his new friend wants to date before he cuts you loose.
If you think him and his new friend are getting a little too close for comfort, I suggest that you have a talk with him and tell him how you feel. If he does have feelings for this new woman, you should tell him to either decide between her or you. Don’t be fooled, emotional cheating is just as real as physical cheating.
3 – He Put Higher Priority on Other Things .
Maybe he’s been acting like a workaholic lately, or maybe you can’t seem to pull him away from the XBox. If your boyfriend seems to be completely absorbed in other things these days, then that too can be one of the signs he wants to break up.
Talk to him about this. It could be that he’s trying to zone out or avoid the problems in your relationship because he doesn’t feel like confronting them. However, if you don’t deal with this head on, there will come a day when he decides his life might be better off without you in it.
4 – He Actually Seems to Resent You .
Did you know that Dr. John Gottman from the University of Washington identified resentment as the number one predictor that a couple will break up or divorce?
Resentment may be different from legitimate criticism in that it actually contains a biting insult or a sweeping generalization, such as ‘you always waste all of your money on stupid things.’
Resentment is probably the biggest thing to look for on a list of signs that he wants to break up. Definitely be on the lookout for this one.
It is important to recognize though that even if you do see one or more of these signs that he wants to break up, it doesn’t mean that your relationship is doomed. The two of you loved each other once and with commitment to working things out the two of you can find the love you once had again.
