1. You stop talking with them about the future.

You used to talk with them daily about where you two would live, what kind of dog you would get, and what size house you wanted. Now whenever your partner brings it up, you quickly change the subject.

2. Their habits that you used to find cute, now just annoy you.

You used to find the way they chewed loudly cute, and the way they always made gestures with their hands while they talked adorable. Now? You find it annoying and not amusing whatsoever.

3. You touch them less.

Even holding hands puts a strain on you. You can’t explain it, and you don’t know how it suddenly happened. But, you can’t stand the fact of touching him/her. It makes you uncomfortable now.

4. You become distant.

You talk less and less with them and have started to avoid communication at all costs. Falling out of love happens so slowly, that you don’t even notice it at first.

5. You don’t want to be intimate anymore.

There is no passion in the relationship anymore. Kissing them isn’t fun like it used to be and there is no fire burning in the bedroom either. You used to love being intimate with them. Now, you don’t have the strength to even try.

6. You pick fights.

Every tiny thing that they do annoys you now. You try to argue and pick a fight with them every chance you can get, in order to cause less pain when it ends.

7. You don’t find them funny anymore.

Everything they said used to be hilarious. It used to be your favorite thing about this person. Now, no matter how they try, they can’t even get you to crack a smile.

8. You start to dread seeing them.

You are uncomfortable being with them now. You want to avoid them at all costs, to avoid awkward conversations and painful endings. They don’t feel like your person anymore.

9. You start to notice other people that you find to be attractive.

Before, you never gave anyone else the time of day and you never noticed other attractive people. Now, your eyes have begun to wander and you have found yourself wanting to be with other people.

10. You turn your head away from them when they try to kiss you.

Even just a simple kiss is a painful realization that you don’t love this person anymore. Your kisses together used to be magic and magnetic. Now, they are dull and lifeless.

11. If you stay with them, you only stay out of comfort.

If you plan on staying with this person, you aren’t staying out of love. You are staying because you feel comfortable with this person and don’t want to cause them pain. But ultimately, you will cause them all the more pain and anguish. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
