Deciding to leave a relationship or not is a tough decision. Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether you’re going through a rough patch or if you’re falling out of love entirely.
Here are some signs you might be falling out of love.
- Communication diminishes
A good relationship is built on strong communication with active listening.
If communication between you and your partner diminishes, and you start to hide your concerns about the relationship or discuss your concerns with friends instead of going to your partner directly, you may need to re-evaluate the relationship. You can introduce date night in the relationship and try and rebuild that spark while talking about the week and finding an interest in each other’s lives.
2.You’ve fallen for someone else
If you are in a committed monogamous relationship and have fallen in love with someone else other than your partner, your relationship is definitely in trouble.
Although some relationships do involve loving multiple partners at once, falling in love with someone else when you identify as monogamous could be a key indicator that you have fallen out of love with your partner.
If you notice this, its important to communicate with your partner instead of dragging them along.
3.You don’t want to be intimate anymore
Every couple goes through sexual ebbs and flows and this can stem from countless reasons including anything from being stressed out to a hormone imbalance.
But if the very thought of having sex with your partner turns you off, but sex in general sounds appealing, it might mean the spark in your relationship has gone out and you should break up.
If its the sex being boring, you can try out something new, maybe more foreplay, role-play or get some toys, you might be surprised.

4.Their imperfections start to stand out
Being in love with someone means you love all of their quirks too. In fact, a study found that small quirks can actually make a person fall deeper in love more than physical attributes can according to reports.
Sure, there may be certain things about your partner that you don’t exactly love, but they usually seem few and far in between when you’re really into them.
But if your partner’s little quirks and imperfections have started making you more annoyed than charmed, it could mean you’re falling out of love.
