3. Each visit becomes less and less exciting

When you’re in a long distance relationship, you tend to put in a huge amount of time, money, effort and emotions into making it work. This automatically makes you feel that you must really be in love with this person who you’re doing so much for. And if you ever have a fight or face any kind of problems, you blame it on the distance and not on the actual issue at hand.

You believe that everything will turn out to be fine once you meet your better half and since you’ve already done so much for the relationship, you feel like it shouldn’t go to waste and you should hold on to it just a little bit longer. This thinking is really great and selfless but sometimes, it just clouds your mind when distance isn’t the actual problem, your relationship is.

So look out for these obvious signs that it’s time to just stop and let go:

1. You don’t ever feel like talking

    If you’re in a really busy routine and have a lot on your mind, it makes sense if you miss a call or don’t reply to a text. However, if you’ve reached a point where the last thing on your mind is to have a long and relaxing talk with your partner even when you have all the time in the world, then there’s probably very little importance of your relationship left in your life.

    2. You’ve stopped making definite plans

    There was a time at the start of your relationship when the thing you discussed and planned the most was your next meeting date. You compared schedules and holidays and kept looking for the cheapest air fares just to set a final date of seeing each other. But now you both don’t really care enough to put in much effort and thought into this. Weeks and months go by without seeing each other and that doesn’t really affect either of you.

    3. Each visit becomes less and less exciting

      The most exciting part about an LDR is that one amazing moment after months and months of waiting when you finally get to see the face you’d been missing for so long. You used to get butterflies in your stomach just thinking about it but now it just feels like something of a routine and thinking about it doesn’t even excite you. You go, you hang out, you spend a few days together and that’s all! They don’t turn out to be the best days of that month for you and you don’t even feel that sad when you’re leaving.

      4. Visiting your partner feels like a burden

        When buying a plane ticket seems like a burden and you feel like you’d much rather save your hard earned money or get some new clothes or go on a vacation with your friends, then you’ve definitely lost all interest in your partner. - Continue reading on the next page
