This week, Doctor Cupid is discussing the various ways you can tell that your relationship is falling apart.
Lack of communication
In relationships, communication is what holds the bond together. Truth be told, it was what started the bond, hence it is what can sustain it. So, one of the ways to know that your relationship is falling apart is when there is a lack of communication.
Silent treatments usually evolve to disregarding your partner’s presence, which could lead to falling out of love.
You could be with your partner in the same space and still be lonely. This may be because they are only interested in their phone.
Time is valuable in relationships. Spending time together just to talk and laugh or having a movie night, dinner dates, etc builds the bond of the relationship. All these and more are vital for relationships that want to thrive. When you don’t spend time together, the relationship can suffer and fall apart.
At the start of the relationship, you were madly in love and couldn’t get enough of each other. However, it seems like you can’t stop yelling at each other. You have constant fights and disagreements.
Words of Affirmation
Nothing builds love stronger than words of affirmations. Words of affirmations are words that help assure your partner that they are yours. Everyone needs assurance and if your partner isn’t willing to give assurance, then your relationship could be falling apart.
