When it comes to relationships, it really is the little things that matter. The small ways your SO (significant other) shows you he (or she) loves you that sometimes you don’t even notice how important they are until they disappear. These small things (or lack of) can also indicate when the love between the two of you is gone.

The little things determine if a relationship will work or not. Grand gestures of love are nice, but does he tell you he loves you every day? Is she willing to spend time doing the things you enjoy doing?

This article will give you ten signs that indicate whether you’ve met your soulmate, or if it’s time to move on.

Doesn’t show you love like he used to.

At the start of your relationship, your partner was always trying to impress you. Now, they seem more interested in impressing Stacy, or Chad, they’re best friend at work or school. This is a sign that the love between you two is over and you’re better off focusing on yourself.

They have someone else on their mind. All the time.

Your SO always brings someone else up in conversation, or their mind always seems to be elsewhere. In this scenario, it’s time to sit down with your partner and talk about where your relationship is going. If it’s not headed in the same direction, it’s time to move on.

You have nothing to talk about any more.

An loving partner will be interested in your life and what you’re doing on a day-to-day basis. However, if you find yourself struggling to find common topics talk about with each other, you’re not into each other anymore. It’s better to part ways.

The blame-game.

No matter what it is, it’s always your fault. Whether its dirty dishes left in the sink overnight, or problems at work with his boss, you always take the blame. The best thing you can do in this scenario is leave.

You don’t support each other.

He’s always irritated with you, she always talks down to you and nothing you do is ever good enough for her. But you deserve better. Leave and move on.

Never at home and always has a reason why.

She’s out with friends at the bar drinking, or travelling with her BFF. He has to stay late at work, or has business trips and never wants to take you with him. This is a major red flag as it shows your SO is not only uninterested in you, but might be seeing someone else too.

You’re not in their plains.

She wants to start a family and have kids. Just not with you. If your partner has future plans that don’t involve you, move on and go your own way.

Only remembers the bad things.

He can’t remember your birthday, but he does remember that one time you cussed him out. If your partner can only remember negative events about your relationship, and none of the great times you had together, repairing that relationship is useless. Move on.

Never gives you any explanations.

If your SO never tells you anything, and never explains his behavior, it’s because he doesn’t feel the need to. He doesn’t consider you an important part of his life. You don’t matter to him. Move on.

Your confidence has plummeted

A partner who cheats, lies, and refuses to communicate is only hurting you and will only drag you down. While it’s hard to do, you have to realize that the love between you two is gone. Leave her, or him, and focus on yourself. Because you’re worth it. J
