In the very beginning of your relationship it was possible that you ignored your partner’s faults and vice versa. Now, a few months or years down the line, it’s getting harder and harder to do that, isn’t it?
It is possible that the arguments are becoming even more frequent or are escalating by the day. It could also be possible that you partner might be shutting down whenever there’s a conflict or argument of any sort. But before its’s too late, try to smoothen things out and remedy them. have a look at the following signs to see if your relationship is in trouble and find out what you can do to get back on the right track.
1. You don’t do the things you loved anymore
Earlier in the relationship, you probably felt free to go for a morning jog, hang out with the guys or girls or take your favorite Thursday evening dance class when you wanted to, but lately you’ve stopped doing those things to avoid your partner’s complaints or jealousy of any sort. In a healthy relationship, both people are usually engaged in their lives and are flourishing together. If you don’t do things for yourself anymore, then there’s a problem.
2. You arguments have started to get ugly
Conflict and fights in any relationship is quite natural, but when the fights start to escalate quickly and get dirtier which could include shouting, name-calling and blaming, it’s a sign that your relationship is headed for the finish line. Let’s say if a healthy couple does experience escalation they’re able to get it under control quickly, but if not, the fights will continue to worsen until the relationship ends.
3. You are afraid to be vulnerable in front of your partner
When you guys got together in a relationship, it was easy to be open and talk to each other about your feelings, whether it was you feeling low or you being happy at the top of the world. But lately, the biggest evil in a relationship has come in your way and that is ego. You would rather die, but not want to show your weakness or vulnerability in front of your partner.
4. You guys prefer not to sort things out and just be distant about it
Before you couldn’t go to bed before having sorted things out and making sure everything was fine. But now, instead of getting into a whole big argument, you prefer to let things be as it is and not get into a whole mess of things.
5. You can’t stand each other
Remember that time when all you wanted to do was be with him/ her, but now you can’t even stand each other without getting into a fight or getting onto each other about a new argument? That’s another sign that your relationship is just going down the drain.
