But now, as a woman, I can also tell you that most guys (I’m being nice) have no clue what’s going on. They think everything’s fine. Hell, they think their relationship is perfect when it’s clear to many women out there that it’s not.
It’s the little things that you miss. Ones that are masking underlying problems that can break your relationship. One major problem is that of your woman losing respect for you. Really, if your partner doesn’t respect you, how can she love you?
So think about it, does your partner respect you? I’m not talking about her refusing to make you a sandwich after you come home from work. She’s probably exhausted too so shut it. No, it’s other things — ones which indicate that she no longer respects you as a person and as someone she loves.
Does she care when you get offended and hurt? Is your woman constantly bringing things up or saying things that will only cause you pain even though she knows she shouldn’t? This could mean that she doesn’t care how you feel anymore.
Has your woman suddenly became a warden rather than a girlfriend? Is she making up rules for you to follow? There’s a difference between asking you to put the laundry in the basket and calling every hour on the dot to check in.
Does she even notice you anymore? Or is she constantly on her phone — texting, browsing or chatting while you’re trying to get her attention? This could be a two-way problem but if you’re trying to make an effort and she’s not, then maybe something is wrong.
Has she suddenly become your stylist? This could be a good thing because you might enjoy having someone tell you what to wear. But, it could also mean that she’s embarrassed by you and she is trying to mold you into the guy she wants to be with.
Putting such restrictions on you and not doing the same herself might be because your woman thinks she is better than you. And, well, no partner should think that about the other person. The basis of a good relationship is that of being respectful to the other person and believing that they are amazing.
So how is she? Is she being dishonest? Is she shutting you out? Moreover, is she making the relationship all about her? Does anything ever go your way? Do you ever do something that you want to do or is it always a one-way street?
Respect is fundamental in a relationship. With it, a couple can give and take and be happy too because when you give in a relationship, you’re still winning. You might have been brushing these signs off for a while but if these things are happening to you and often, maybe you should reevaluate your relationship.
