The Warning Signs: How to Tell If Your Partner Is About to Leave You
When to worry: 5 signs he's may be leaving you
Here are 5 signs he's just not that into you. He may be leaving you if you have noticed this behavior. Of course, just because he's quiet sometimes doesn't mean he is leaving. If you're just not sure, look for these signs and deal with it. You'll be glad you did.
You dropped down his contact list in his phone
If you dropped down his recent contact list in his phone, that may be a sign that he is not as interested in you as he once was. It could mean that he is preparing to break up with you and is already starting to distance himself from you.
If you are not his most recent phone contact, that could be a sign that he is preparing to break up with you. He may be trying to minimize the amount of contact he has with you in order to make the breakup less painful for you.
He walks ahead of you
He stops public displays of affection. If your partner walks ahead of you, it could mean that he's not that interested in you and is ready to move on. Additionally, if your partner stops public displays of affection, it could mean that he's not invested in the relationship and is ready to end things. This is one of the most obvious of the 5 signs he's just not that into you.
If you're noticing these warning signs, it might be time to have a conversation with your partner about where things are headed. If he's unwilling to talk or make changes, then it might be time to move on. Try to remember a time when he walked hand in hand with you.
He wants separate banking
If your partner is pushing for separate bank accounts, it could be a sign that he's not that into you and is ready to move on. If your partner is leaving you, it's definitely time to worry. Bank accounts can be a symbol of financial security, and separation can signal a means to an end.
So, if your partner is advocating for them to be separate, it could mean he doesn't think the relationship will last. If you're feeling unsure about where your relationship is headed, this could be a sign to pay attention to. This may simply be a smart move on his part. But, if you were sharing an account and he opens a separate one, it is surely one of the 5 signs he's leaving and just not that into you.
He looks scared when you say "I love you". He hesitates before saying it back.
This is the most glaringly obvious of the 5 signs he's just not that into you. If he looks scared or hesitant when you say "I love you", it could be a sign he's not ready to commit. Or, he doesn't feel the same way about you. When your relationship is on the rocks, pay attention to these signs to see if things are really over.
If he has that "deer in the headlights" look when you say "I love you", he is moving on. You probably find yourself saying it first and more often to test the situation.
His face lights up when he sees or is around someone else
Does your partner's face light up when they see or talk about someone else? It could be a sign they're not as into you as they used to be. This change in behavior could mean that they're losing interest and may eventually leave you.
He will want more company around, like your best friend. When your friend arrives, he doesn't know what to do with his hands. And if he ever goes missing at a party, look for your friend. You will likely find him. A man puts himself where he wants to be. Always!
He starts ridiculous arguments
He starts ridiculous arguments with you out of nowhere. If your man suddenly starts picking fights with you over things that didn't bother him before... It's a sign that he's trying to create distance between you. He may be looking for an excuse to breakup and he's hoping that you'll do it for him. He will complain about how the house is not clean. The car is out of gas again, you are stopping him from seeing his friends. He will start an argument about anything that sheds you in a bad light over something insignificant. Think back to when you first got together. Did he care about what he is complaining about today?
One of the biggest of the 5 signs that he's losing interest is that he stops making time for you. He cancels plans at the last minute. It seems that lately he doesn't call or text as much. He seems to be busy all the time. If you're not a priority in his life anymore, it's time to start reconsidering your relationship.
Have the relationship you want
No one wants to be the person who is always waiting for the other shoe to drop in a relationship. If your man is exhibiting any of these warning signs, it may be time to have a talk about the future of your relationship. Of course, this isn’t an exhaustive list and every situation is different.
But if you are worried that he might be getting ready to leave, don’t ignore your gut instinct. It is better to know for sure where you stand with one of the 5 signs than stay in a relationship that isn’t right for you. Either have the relationship you want with him or have it with someone else.
