It’s always rough whenever you get dumped by someone you once shared a very strong and fiery love with. And whenever you go through that kind of experience, it can feel like a slow emotional death. It’s definitely something that you wouldn’t want to put yourself through a second time around. When you go through a heartbreak, it’s always going to feel so much worse than you would initially imagine. And regardless of how your breakup might go, you always know that you would be able to handle it better if you are able to brace for it beforehand.
But a lot of people don’t really see their breakups coming beforehand. A lot of people get blindsided by their breakups because they are too caught up in the novelty of their relationships. They don’t really see the signs that things are headed downhill. They aren’t able to keep an eye out for the red flags. And what ends up happening is they are completely caught off-guard when the relationship reaches its breaking point. That’s why you always want to make sure that you stay mindful of the state of your relationship. Whenever you notice that things are starting to go downhill, at least you would be able to prepare for the inevitable end.
But how can you tell? Is it really possible to anticipate a breakup happening before it actually takes place? Well, of course, it is. No one ever decides to break up with another person on a whim. Breakups are rarely ever impulsive decisions that happen on the spot. A breakup is always something that takes place after a slow, gradual, and incremental buildup of negative feelings and emotions surrounding a relationship. Whenever someone starts contemplating a breakup, the signs are always going to be there out in the open. You just need to be able to seek them out.
However, a lot of these signs and indicators are incredibly subtle and that’s why they can be very easy to miss. That is why you must always make it a point to stay extra vigilant whenever you are in a relationship. You need to have eagle eyes. You don’t want to end up having your partner shock you with a breakup. Not only will you be having to deal with a broken heart, but you’re also going to have to deal with all the shock that you’re experiencing at that moment. And that’s not an easy thing to do.
This article is going to help equip you with the knowledge that you need to spot out these signs as they are taking place in the relationship. You need to be able to pay very close attention to the body language of your partner and the way that they conduct themselves around you. They might be saying one thing with their mouths, but they might actually be feeling something completely different on the inside.
If you notice that a lot of the following signs are present in your own relationship, then there is a very good chance that the two of you are headed for a breakup.
1. You don’t establish eye contact when you talk.
Eye contact is always going to be very important whenever you’re communicating with one another. It establishes trust, comfort, and reliability between two people. When there is a lack of eye contact between the two of you, it’s very awkward.
2. You don’t get physically intimate in the bedroom.
Sexual drive is always going to be very important in an intimate relationship. And if the two of you have a very poor sex life, then it’s likely that that is going to carry over into other aspects of your relationship as well. You always want to be building on your sexual chemistry.
3. You don’t engage in PDA.
You don’t have to be constantly making out in public or whenever you’re in the presence of your friends. But you need to be able to be physically intimate even when you’re out in public. Even simple things like holding hands while walking can be a strong indicator of your love. But if none of that is going on, then that’s a problem.
4. You have furrowed eyebrows when you talk.
Furrowed eyebrows are signs of displeasure and discontent within a person. So, you might have a good idea of how your partner feels about you when they have furrowed eyebrows while they’re looking at you.
5. Your pupils decrease in size.
Studies have shown that a person’s pupils will dilate whenever they are looking at the people that they love. That is why if you notice that your partner’s pupils don’t dilate whenever they see you, then that is very telling of how they truly feel on the inside.
6. Your feet point away from one another.
According to body language experts and relationship scientists, feet tend to turn inward whenever people are in the presence of the ones that they are in love with.
