Everyone wants a happy ending. Once you've found the girl of your dreams, you probably never imagined it could be anything other than "growing old together".
However, it is an unfortunate fact of love and life that not all relationships make it to this promised land.
If it's a big scandal likeinfidelityor something as simple yet devastating as one of you falling in love, it's always good to have a warning.
With the falling in love part, there are a lot of caveats along the way. Here are some warning signs that she's not in love with you anymore that might come in handy when you're getting a diagnostic exam to see if your relationship will last or not.
Here are 25 Signs Your Girlfriend Doesn't Like You Anymore:
1. He never has time for you anymore
One of the first signs that he doesn't love you anymore is when he doesn't give you as much attention as he used to.
A fundamental pillar of a successful relationship is to spendquality timetogether. If that doesn't seem like a priority for her anymore, then she probably doesn't like you like she used to.
With that in mind, consider factors such as schedule changes and increased responsibilities in your life.
Sometimes she really can't do it because of a work problem. It may seem like she doesn't care, but there's not much she can do when she's too busy.
2. He lost interest in the things you introduced him to
I'll tell you a little secret. Many girls in relationships feign an interest in things they know their partners like.
She might not be completely faking it, but you can bet she probably wouldn't be interested in this fantasy football league or Monster Jam without you.
That's a massive generalization, of course, but it happens quite often.
It can also give you clues when your girlfriend starts pulling away. All of a sudden, she won't be interested in pursuing those hobbies or interests that you specifically introduced her to.
This is usually because she may form negative associations with these activities as they are related to you.
3. There is a new or stronger sense of independence
Another common warning sign that she is losing interest in you is when she starts insisting on doing everything herself. This new or greater sense of confidence is just another way for them to distance themselves from you, both physically and emotionally.
It's a way for her to prove to herself and you that she doesn't need you in her life.
You might think she's having trouble opening this can, even though she asked for help beforehand. Suddenly, you may find yourself insisting on running errands that you previously shared with yourself.
4. She keeps you a secret
Suddenly, you are no longer invited to family barbecues and cocktail parties with your friends. He seems hesitant to let you spend time with people he finds close.
This insistence on keeping you a secret could be a major indicator that he's not interested in you or that he's in a long-term relationship.
5. You are not her priority and she goes out with male friends.
If your girlfriend is trying hard to cut you out of her life, then things aren't looking too good for you, man.
This can be shown in many ways. Maybe these days she'd rather go out with her friends than stay home with you. Or maybe she makes time for everything from unnecessary dates to dog birthday parties, but never makes time for you to hang out or do things together.
This passive-aggressive attack shows that you are no longer his number one priority. She is no longer fully involved, and that only happens when a woman falls in love.
6. He conveniently leaves you out of his plans.
You know that heartbreaking feeling when your friends do something fun without you and you find out later? You can often experience this feeling when your girlfriend doesn't like you anymore.
She starts making plans and conveniently forgets to inform or involve him. It could be something big, like attending an event for a friend or shared interest. It could also be something as simple as watching a few episodes of your favorite TV show without watching it.
Okay, I know that last one might sound a little mean, but in the right environment it's a loud alarm clock to watch out for!
7. Text messages and phone calls don't flow as copiously anymore
Remember when they started and broke phones with constant text messages and phone calls? Everything looked good and those were the good times, huh?
As the relationship progresses, the frequency of these chats gradually decreases. But enthusiasm must always be present on both sides.
If a girl doesn't like you, she will most likely leave your messages unanswered and your calls unanswered. Unless you have a good reason for radio silence, expect the worst.
Remember that communication is the key to a successful relationship.
8. He doesn't get mad at you anymore
If she no longer seems angry with you or visibly disappointed in your transgressions, then you, my friend, are in trouble.
It might seem like a crazy idea, but a woman who worries sometimes gets angry. That's because they have expectations and get very upset when you don't meet them.
On the other hand, if you've heard a lot of "it's okay" or "don't worry" if you screw up, then your relationship is in intensive care.
9. Badmouthing your friends.
Girls always share the best and worst of their relationships with their closest friends or family. However, they usually tend to defend their partners even when they complain about an inadequacy they might have.
But things change when your girlfriend loses interest in you. She is no longer on her side, making you an easy target for her and her friends. Now she won't hold any punches when it comes to exposing her insecurities to snubbing her flaws.
While small talk is a surefire sign of disinterest and contempt, you might not even realize what's going on. Unless, of course, you share mutual friends and have someone in your corner of the friend group.
10. Criticize everything you do
Some women tend to be critical and negative when they start to break up a relationship. He will criticize pretty much anything you do, even if you feel like you don't deserve it.
Unfortunately, this is a sign that not only does he no longer love you, but he may also be starting to resent you and your presence in his life.
As with most of the other signs we've highlighted, this rising criticism is often unconscious. However, it could also be a deliberate attack on your peace of mind and self-esteem to sabotage the relationship.
11. When you fight, she gets dirty.
Another important sign that a girl doesn't like you anymore is when she uncompromisingly attacks your character, especially during a fight.
Disagreements in a relationship are a necessary part as long as both exist.fair fight. However, if he starts hitting you below the belt, he has probably lost all the care, feelings and love he had for you.
12. She can take small nudges against her insecurities.
One of the best things about a happy relationship is the security you have from being vulnerable. You have someone to lean on and share your hopes, dreams, fears, and feelings of inadequacy.
Unfortunately, sometimes that safe space is the first thing to go when one or both of you drift apart.
At worst, your girl might use some of those insecurities you've shared against you.
If you're at this point in the relationship, rest assured that the unconditional love and general goodwill he once had for you is likely to wane.
13. Your physical intimacy is impaired
Another obvious sign that he doesn't love you anymore is when he starts rejecting your physical advances.
She might not let you hold her hand as often when you're out in public. Or maybe she suddenly doesn't want to be sexually or physically intimate with you anymore, despite having shown interest in the past.
Either way, if physical contact and attention is suddenly withdrawn without explanation, things are not looking good for you right now.
On the other hand, not all uninterested girlfriends will say no to intimacy or push your hand away if you try to be affectionate. In some scenarios, the evidence that your girl is losing interest could be more subtle, for example.
To be fair, this could be a rather vague sign of trouble in paradise. But he can also be very sensitive, especially in cases where his friend was previously very sensitive and affectionate.
The stark contrast between his inability to keep his hands off you and his newfound disinterest in reaching out should tell you something is wrong.
15. You feel emotionally distant
Physical avoidance can hurt a lot, but nothing compares to being frozen by the woman you love. When a girl is no longer interested, she completely isolates herself from the relationship and from you.
This emotional detachment is a form of coping mechanism and may not even be something she is aware of.
Emotional detachment manifests itself in different ways. Some girls simply stop being affectionate or verbally expressing love, or even avoid eye contact. Other times, it's more subtle and it can seem like she's not interested in your interests or emotions anymore. She is not there when you need emotional support.
It's a sign that's hard to describe, but let's just say you'll feel it when your girlfriend starts to emotionally distance herself from you. Pay attention to his body language, sometimes he can say a lot.
Sometimes people have that."I love you but I'm not in love with you" Feeling.
16. Not much enthusiasm for future plans together
A woman who truly loves you embraces the idea of a long-term future together. She enthusiastically participates in conversations about settling down. She seems excited about the idea of starting a family together.
If this is not the case, it is very likely that she is not interested in being with you.
While this is true for most, some women just don't have marriage and children on their immediate agenda. So listen to his side of the story before you decide he doesn't love you and you have to go.
Maybe this is your chance to finally enjoy life after a breakup.
17. Lack of Communication
When women are really into a relationship, they are great at communication. She'll tell you what she likes, what she doesn't like, who made her mad at work, etc.
It's not just about the quantity but also the quality of the communication as he wants you to understand how he's feeling.
When she stops loving you, this magical gift will disappear. You'll notice that she doesn't talk to you or start a conversation as much as she used to. And when she talks to you, there's almost no emotion or interest from her.
So when those one-word texts and heavy silences creep in, you're in for trouble!
18. He stops praising you
Another way to tell your girl is not into you is when the compliment wears off. I've always complimented you on everything from the ugly sweater your aunt sent you to the new haircut you weren't sure about.
But now she just doesn't seem to notice.
The worst case scenario here is if she really tries to belittle and criticize you. He suddenly can't stand your perfume or doesn't like your clothes.
This is the final stage of relationship failure and you probably can't turn things around without a miracle.
19. He might try hard to look handsome, but not for you.
This one is a little confusing, but be patient, it will make sense.
Girls are generally comfortable when they are in a relationship, which is honestly one of the most flattering things a guy can do. I mean, who doesn't want to know why their girlfriend feels comfortable and secure in the relationship.
If your girlfriend loses interest in you and your relationship, she may be preparing (consciously or unconsciously) to get back into the dating world. This might mean putting a little more effort into her appearance and what you wear.
It could also be a sign that she already has her eyes on her successor and is dressing to impress him.
20. He talks a lot about other men in his life.
Flirting and cheating are clear signs that your girl might not love or like you anymore. But not all women go that far.
Some may suddenly start talking a lot more about the other guys in their lives. It can be endless praise for a new friend or co-worker. You can mention a lot more mutual friends in your conversations than before.
Interestingly, this is something she can do quite unconsciously. However, some may use this as a strong indication that she has options and you need to step it up if you want to keep her.
In either case, you may also find that she becomes overly defensive when you confront her about talking too much about other friends in her own life.
21. Starts flirting with other guys or even cheating on you
This is going to hurt a lot. The only good news is that unless you're dating a total geek, there's nothing to worry about. But then again people change and you never know until you find these messages or catch them cheating.
If your girlfriend gets to the point where she can flirt directly with you or cheat on you, then she's done. There's no love or respect there anymore, and frankly, it might not even be worth fighting for. If your partner is cheating on you, just cut your losses and find that special someone who is loyal to you and really loves you.
22. Unexplained Guilt and Apologetic Behavior
It's not always about disrespect and contempt when a woman doesn't love you anymore. Sometimes it's just the opposite, and some feel overwhelmed with guilt.
You may suddenly look guilty about something and apologize more and more. She may even become clingier than she normally is.
At that point, she knows she doesn't want to be in the relationship, but she cares too much about you and your feelings to take the bandage off.
The best way to describe it is this: it will sound like she regrets something she knows she did and you don't.
23. Bring up hypothetical discussions that point to a breakup.
"So honey, hypothetically speaking, what would you do if we broke up? How long do you think it would take you to move on and find someone new? Why am I asking? Oh, no reason, just out of curiosity..."
If you've had conversations like this with your partner, you probably have something to worry about.
To be fair, some couples do these discussions with complete innocence, even if they are head over heels in love.
However, if these hypothetical breakup conversations come up, if you also notice any of the other signs we've highlighted, chances are she's fallen in love.
24. She can ask for space
Sometimes you really don't have to fight too hard playing the guessing game to find out your boyfriend doesn't love you anymore. Maybe she's just asking for space or a moment to think.
No matter how secure you feel, it's important to remember that no one asks for a break or space when they're falling madly in love or hopeful for the future of the relationship.
The good news is that you can work loose. This means that you might have second thoughts about the romantic relationship, but you still care enough to think about making it work.
So give her the space she needs and be as kind and supportive as possible while she works things out. If you can, make an effort to eliminate any habits that you know are bothering her to show that you care about what she thinks and how comfortable she is.
25. She really tells you
The clearest of all indications that she is no longer interested is a verbal confirmation of it.
Some other women spare you the investigation and Sherlock Holmes and just have "the talk" to let you know they don't love you anymore.
If she does, please don't fight her. For most people, delivering these messages requires thinking hard about all the factors.
If he walks out and says it to your face, it means he's reached a point where he thinks the relationship isn't going anywhere.
There's probably no way to change things anymore, so cut your losses and move on. You'll find someone else, and that's a promise!
