Love is beautiful. It gives you an overall feeling of happiness and joy. It can build and grow stronger over time, but if you don’t nourish it, it can also diminish. If love is clouding your judgement and you’re worried love has taken a wrong turn over time, read on as New Jersey Singles reviews the telltale warning signs your partner no longer feels the same for you.
You know your feelings, but you don’t know your partner’s. You’re confused, worried, and fearing the worst. Is your partner using you? No matter how badly you want to fix things and get your relationship back on track, you can’t do much for the relationship if your partner doesn’t love you in return.
Many people make the mistake of staying in a relationship thinking they’ll change their partner’s mind or that their partner will eventually come around and love them again. But staying in a bad relationship will only cause you pain and hurt down the road.
To avoid this pain, the best thing for you to do is face your situation head on. Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the signs you’re in a one-sided relationship and it’s time to walk away and find someone who shares the same feelings for you.
New Jersey Singles Reviews Signs You’re Wasting Your Time
To help daters and love seekers, New Jersey Singles reviews many aspects of love and dating on a weekly basis, providing expert dating coaching and relationship advice. Today, our professional matchmakers will touch on the signs of a one-sided relationship.
1. Your partner is okay with routines.
When you try to spice things with a spontaneous road trip or even something smaller like trying a new restaurant in town, your partner grunts and ignores you. When you suggest something new, they always take it personally. In essence, they like doing the same thing, day after day.
2. Your relationship feels stale.
It comes as no surprise that after reading the first bullet point, you’re realizing things in your relationship have gotten a bit stale. When you’re in a one-sided relationship, things do feel stale—and that’s because your partner no longer puts efforts into the relationship.
3. Social situations feel awkward.
When the two of you receive a party invitation, your partner will not be lovey dovey with you like normal couples are—and everyone else will notice it too. Your partner will behave awkwardly, perhaps only speaking when spoken to, causing you a lot of grief and worry.
4. They keep you away from important people.
If your partner keeps you away from their friends and family, then you need to consider this a red flag. A loving partner will encourage you to come around the people they love. They will rejoice at the thought of you being friends with their friends and love it when you get along with their family. If your partner is keeping you away from all the people in their life, then you know something is wrong.
5. Physical touch is out of the picture.
In the early stages of your relationship, neither of you could keep your hands off each other, but your partner never touches you now. Of course the relationship will never be the same as it was during the early stages, but your partner should at least show loving gestures here and there. If you can’t remember the last time your partner held your hand, caressed you, or cuddled you, then you know they’re not in love anymore.
6. There’s no sexual interest.
Of course you don’t have to have sex every night, and in seasoned relationships, sex does decrease. But again, if you can’t remember the last time you were intimate with your partner, then you need to ask yourself why… and why you’re wasting your time.
7. Your partner takes you for granted.
If you prepare your partner their favorite meal and they show no appreciation for it, it’s because they’re taking you for granted. Your kind gestures mean nothing to them these days, and whatever you do, you just can’t seem to please them. And every time you bring up the issue, they tell you to stop nagging them.
8. They don’t share things with you.
In the early stages of the relationship, you could both share anything with each other… How your day went, your pending projects, your family drama, your friends’ problems, and everything in between. But you’re the only one sharing things in the relationship nowadays. Your partner never tells you anything and has become really closed off.
9. Kind words have gone extinct.
The words “I love you” are extinct in your relationship. You are the only one in the relationship that says kind and loving words. If that’s the case, then it’s obvious the love has gone out the window and your relationship has become one-sided.
10. Your partner has started bad habits.
It could be that your partner has started smoking, heavily drinking, or spending too much money, and it’s putting a strain on your relationship. If your partner really loved you, they would not do these things they know cause unnecessary stress. But if your partner has lost the love, they’ll start making poor choices, particularly ones that disregard you.
11. There is no motivation to change.
A good couple inspires each other to become better in life. Maybe the woman is creative and inspires her man to work his way up at his job… Maybe the man is smart and helps the woman open her own business. These are examples of what happy couples do for each other: they encourage each other to improve in life.
If your partner doesn’t care what you do, and never motivates you whatsoever, then it’s because they don’t really care for you.
12. There aren’t any common goals.
You want to get married, have two dogs, and settle down. Your partner wants to live in the city, party, and put minimum efforts into their life. If that’s the case, then it’s obvious this is a one-sided relationship and you’re wasting your time.
If, by the end of this list, you realize you’re in a one-sided relationship, you need to understand one thing: there is nothing you can do to change this. The love is gone and your only choice is to move on with your life without them.
