It is really sad when you find that you are in a relationship with a person who doesn’t have genuine feelings for you but is only settling because they don’t have a better option at the moment. And I say it is a sad thing because we all want and deserve to be in a relationship with a person we love and who loves us back.
However, there are times when we get stuck in a relationship with a partner who doesn’t love us, someone who will never give us the things we dream of and deserve.
Of course, they will try to fake feelings for us, but you will feel deep in your heart that they are not honest because everything will feel so unnatural to you.
If you are confused, below are 8 signs that show that your partner is not in love with you.
1. THE RELATIONSHIP DOESN’T FEEL LIKE A PARTNERSHIP
You two are more like two individuals living your separate lives and than two people who are committed to each other and consider building a future together.
2. YOUR PARTNER IS NOT EXPRESSING AN INTEREST IN YOUR LIFE
They don’t show any interest in what’s happening in your life. They don’t care to hear about your day or getting close to you. They don’t take the time to get to know you on a deeper and more meaningful way. They don’t know what makes you special and unique nor do they want to find out.
3. THE ONLY TIME YOU TWO ARE REALLY CONNECTED IS DURING SEX
Yes, sex is a vital part of any relationship. However, your relationship should not be based solely on sex. Sex helps in building intimacy, but true intimacy consists of many other things that are not sexual, like talking, sharing your deepest secrets and fears with each other, and so on.
4. YOUR PARTNER IS VERY CRITICAL OF YOU
Your partner always has something negative to say about you. They are always criticizing you and making you feel like everything that goes wrong in the relationship is because of you.
5. YOU FEEL CONSTANTLY UNAPPRECIATED AND TAKEN FOR GRANTED
You don’t feel like you are a priority to your partner. You feel like your partner doesn’t value you and your relationship because they are always taking you for granted. You feel more like an object to them than an actual human being with emotions.
6. THEY DON’T MAKE PLANS WITH YOU
You feel like they treat you and the relationship casually because they never talk about a future with you. Whenever they make plans, they only consider themselves and their needs; they never mention you or ask you what your plans are.
7. YOU DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE AROUND THEM
You don’t feel free to word your feelings and express your opinion on things because you fear they will misunderstand you and leave you. Plus, anytime you tried to talk with them was without any success because they don’t listen to you.
8. YOU JUST KNOW IT
You have a gnawing feeling in your stomach every time you think about them. Your gut feeling tells you they don’t love you. Listen to it.
