Men won’t ever tell you they don’t love you anymore right to your face, especially if they still have some feelings for you—it doesn’t have to be love, but respect.
Although they want to move on, they can’t and won’t forget the time you had together so easily.
But, there are other signs that might turn on your alert that he might leave you. It’s all in the body language. You can easily see through someone just from the way he acts.
Usually, women ignore these signs although they are crystal clear.
No one would be happy to accept that his marriage or relationship is falling apart. It’s completely normal when people live in denial because as soon as they accept the fact that things are not the same anymore, it means it is finally over.
Love has many different sides.
If someone tells you he loves you, it doesn’t necessarily have to mean that the love is going to last forever. It doesn’t have to mean that you are the one for him—or that he is the one for you.
Surely, the two of you had a connection, but maybe it wasn’t everlasting love. It was probably an infatuation, a short-term romance that faded away with time.
If you stop fooling yourself into thinking you can save what was long broken, maybe you can find a way to save yourself from getting hurt and prepare yourself for the forthcoming rejection.
So, be brave, and don’t try to avoid the inevitable. Deal with the situation you are in, and take it as the strong woman you are.
If you read these signs he doesn’t love you anymore from his behavior, spare yourself the pain, and break it off.
1. He ignores you
It’s like you don’t exist anymore. He completely begins to live a life of his own. Before, anything he or you did was a mutual decision. And now, you don’t even know that he’s planning on doing something.
When you are around, he gets all weird, and he pretends he’s alone. Even if he needs something like: “Did you iron his shirt?”, he won’t ask you. He’ll go and find it, and if it’s not ironed, he will do it by himself.
2. Lack of communication
One of the biggest signs he doesn’t love you anymore is a lack of communication. This is not like ignoring. This is much more serious and on a deeper level. When he loses interest in you, he will cut you off. He will lose the need to communicate with you in any way.
Whether it’s body language communication, verbal or just eye contact—he will break off all of these. Then, it’s time for you to realize it’s over. There’s no point in trying when you can’t even talk properly.
3. He avoids you
Has it happened that somehow you cannot run into each other although you live in the same apartment? That is not a coincidence. He has learned your daily routines and your schedule by now, and he knows when you’re coming home.
So, he makes sure he is not there when you arrive. When a man stops loving you, he will try to avoid you to make you realize he wants out. Spending time together will be something you’ll rarely experience.
4. He’s not involved in your life
Maybe you used to do things together, but not anymore. He suddenly gave up on everything that interests you. He hates your hobbies all of a sudden, and he thinks they are irrelevant. If he doesn’t respect your interests, that means he thinks you are irrelevant.
He ditched your friends, too. When your relationship was a healthy one, he loved spending time with you and your friends. Now, every time you ask him out either by yourself or with your friends, he rejects you. He is literally breaking all the bonds he has with you.
5. He is rude
He is harsh with his words in private and in public. I mean he really doesn’t choose what he’s going to say. It’s not even that he doesn’t care about you at all. Maybe he’s just too big of a coward to admit he doesn’t love you anymore.
So, he’s using his words and rude behavior to let you know he wants out. If you notice he’s acting like this and is using some ‘smart’ comments every time you say or do something, either confront him or take this as a huge red flag, and just leave.
6. He humiliates you
Do you sense that he is always finding a way to put you down? Even when you are with friends or family, he tries to humiliate you by cracking jokes at your expense. Others don’t find this that obvious, especially if he’s prone to cracking jokes, but you just know it’s something more than a joke—it’s personal.
7. He’s secretive
See if this scenario rings any bells: he gets ready, takes a peek at his phone and smiles, or someone calls him, and he goes to the other room to answer. Moments later, he’s at the door, grabbing the doorknob, leaving you wondering where he’s going and with whom.
This is not right. If you chose to live together, you have to share everything. Believe me, this is a big sign he’s not into you anymore. If he doesn’t feel the need to tell you where he’s going just so you won’t worry where he is, then he has really stopped caring about you.
8. He lies to you
Can it get any worse? There is no need to write anything else about lying. It’s as simple as this—if he hides things from you, he doesn’t respect you or your relationship, and he is probably finding a way to tell you that. It’s just that he lacks courage, so he lies.
9. He hides his phone
If he’s texting someone and you are sitting right next to him, he’ll probably move his phone screen in another direction, so you can’t see it. And even if you try to invade his privacy a little and try to get your hands on his phone, it’s impossible. He will make sure you never find it because it will be by his side all the time.
10. He’s hot ’n’ cold
One moment he is all into you, ready to give you the world, and the other, he acts like you don’t even exist. This happens because even he is not an emotionless machine. He has some feelings for you left.
It’s not easy to simply erase someone’s existence and involvement in your life up to the moment you decide to walk away. He’s probably still struggling with the idea of whether he is going to leave you or not. That’s why he’s acting hot ‘n’ cold. But nevertheless, if he acts this way, it’s only a matter of time before he’s going to leave you.
11. He gets angry easily
He will get angry at the slightest little thing. His tolerance level is dropping more and more each day, and his fuse is getting shorter. He will yell at you for no valid reason, and he will make a fuss out of nothing.
In other words, he’s screaming he wants out!
12. There is no ‘I love you’
You stopped being ridiculously cute. But not just that, you stopped saying and acting as lovers do. He stopped telling you he loves you. Even that is not a big deal because people say that actions speak louder than words, but in your case, actions along with words have been gone a long time ago.
13. He stops making you happy
He stopped doing things for you. All that little cute stuff you liked and which made you feel special, which made you feel his and only his are gone. He’s not even trying anymore. He stopped caring altogether.
14. He compares you to other women
He compares you to any woman he sees on the street, saying that you should be more like her, that you should dress like her or change your hairstyle to something different. He also compares you to his ex and that is the part which hurts the most. Sometimes during a casual conversation, he will mention her in a positive light—this way giving you hints that you should follow her example.
15. He never apologizes
No matter if he is wrong, he will never apologize to you, while on the other hand, when you mess something up and hurt his feelings, he wants an apology ASAP, otherwise he will put on a sour face and sulk all day. But when he messes things up, you will never get an apology. He will just act like nothing happened. That’s a clear sign that he doesn’t respect you because he doesn’t care if your feelings got hurt or not which leads to the conclusion he probably doesn’t love you at all.
16. You are not his priority
He puts you at the bottom of his priorities list. If he has to choose between something he likes and you, he won’t choose you. This means he doesn’t love you because a man who loves you would always put you first—no matter what. If you needed his help, that man would drop everything immediately to come and rescue you if you wanted him to.
17. He doesn’t talk about the future
He never talks about your future together which basically means that he doesn’t want you in it. Maybe, for now, you are convenient to him, and he wants you around for some reason, but that is not going to be long-term.
When this happens, you know that the spark that kept your relationship alive is gone. There’s no point in forcing it back to light—just let it burn out.
18. He doesn’t try anymore
Whether we like it or not, the fact is that most relationships fall in a rut sooner or later. However, this doesn’t mean that you and your partner should be taking each other for granted just because you’ve been together for ages.
But this is exactly what your boyfriend’s been doing, isn’t it? He became so certain in your love for him that he has stopped putting any effort towards you.
Even though you might think that something like this is normal in every long-term relationship, the truth is that it’s a surefire sign your boyfriend’s love for you has vanished. It is clear that this guy isn’t ready to lift a finger for your sake, and that is not how someone who loves you would ever behave.
19. Everything you do bothers him
When you love someone, you find everything that this person does funny and cute. On the other hand, when you can’t stand someone’s guts, them just existing, breathing and doing nothing annoys the hell out of you.
And this is exactly what’s happening with your boyfriend. All the things he used to consider adorable about you have now become a source of irritation. If this is the case, it is pretty clear that he’s gotten tired of your relationship. It’s possible he doesn’t want to accept this as a sign he doesn’t love you anymore as well or that he feels guilty about his lack of emotions, but if this man is frustrated by your presence in his life, his emotions for you are long gone.
20. He avoids sex
Yes, you’ve read it right. It is possible for men to avoid intimacy once they lose feelings for their partner. So if your boyfriend almost never initiates sex or has suddenly stopped trying with you in the bedroom, it is one of the signs he doesn’t love you anymore.
This lack of physical intimacy we are talking about doesn’t involve your sexual life only. The fact is that the two of you don’t cuddle, kiss, hug and hold hands anymore. Even when you try spicing things up a little, this man rejects you one way or another which of course makes you feel unloved and unwanted.
