Love relationships are beautiful! But they can turn into your worst nightmare if you or your partner stop making some effort. I know that it is not easy to invent new things and find ways how to spice your love life, but if you truly love your partner, that shouldn’t be that hard, right?

Loving your soulmate and giving all of you to them should be as natural as breathing. It should be something that you want to do to make the both of you happy. But unfortunately, there are people who let the love die and they just give up. They do absolutely nothing to satisfy their loved one and in the end, they get surprised for not getting the love and affection they want.

But that is the catch! You can’t get quality things if you don’t give something in return. And here is how you will feel and what you will do if you are simply not happy and satisfied in your relationship.

1. Everything he says makes you want to punch yourself in the throat

Do you have the constant feeling that everything your partner says is so stupid? You are simply not interested in what he has to say and you can’t make normal conversation with him. If you feel this way, it is time to change something. Change your guy or change your approach to your relationship. You can’t be satisfied living with someone who doesn’t understand your essential needs and who can’t be there for you when you need him.

2. You feel better without him

If you don’t see your man for a day because you had a busy schedule and later on at night you go out with your friends and you don’t miss him at all, you should think twice about why you are with him in the first place. I mean, when you love someone, you will want to spend time with him and when you don’t want to do that, something is obviously wrong. The best thing that you can do is to wonder why you are with him and what his flaws are that you were attracted to. Think about if he is a man you can be yourself with in 10 years’ time. If the answer is negative, you know what you have to do.

3. You don’t feel the need to share things with him

When you are in a love relationship, you will want to share all your secrets and the things that happen to you with your partner. But if you don’t feel this way, it means that your heart doesn’t beat for that man anymore. You obviously stopped loving him and you are just trapped in something that was once a relationship. The best thing for the both of you would be to cut that and to start new chapters of your life.

4. You don’t feel happy with him

The point of having a love relationship is to have someone who you will be happy with. But if you don’t feel good when your partner is there and he can’t do anything about it, you should let him go. What’s the point in being with someone you feel like crap with? Move on from a man like that and find your happiness in a different place. Real love will knock on your door when you least expect it.

5. You can’t have a conversation without fighting

When you love someone, you will want to hear his side of the story and you will be patient with him. But when you are not satisfied in a relationship, you won’t even have time or it gets on your nerves to listen to him because you know that he will say something that bothers you. This is a proven sign that you are stuck in a bad relationship and it is time for you to leave. Communication is an essential part of every relationship and if you can’t talk to your partner without fighting, something has to change.

6. You think about other guys

If you are unhappy in your relationship, chances are that you will think about other guys. You will probably think about your life with them instead of him and the things they could do for you to feel special. If you feel this way, you should know that both of you will have to try hard to make something worth fighting for. If your gut is telling you that he is not the person worthy of fighting for, it is better to leave him instead of leading him on.

7. You don’t want to be intimate with him

This is one of the most obvious signs that you are not satisfied in your relationship. If you feel repulsed with the a man sleeping next to you and you feel better when he is not on the other side of the bed, it is a sign that something is wrong. Most couples who are in love like to be intimate from time to time and those who can’t get enough of it are can’t take their hands off of their partners. So, your distance has meaning—that you are not into him that much and you are way better off without him.

8. You can’t imagine your future together

If you think that you have had enough of your partner and that your relationship is not going the way it used to, you should just let it go. If you don’t feel that your man is someone you could picture yourself with in the next 10 years, do yourself a favor and let him go. Maybe someone better is waiting for you and you can’t meet the right one while you are stuck with the wrong one. In the end, listen to your heart because it never fails to show you the right way.
