3. There’s A Total Lack Of Affection
It’s totally normal to have less sex after the honeymoon phase of the relationship. (You know, when you can’t keep your hands off each other.) But if you are no longer having sex at all, much less cuddling or kissing each other goodbye before work, then it could mean the end is nigh. “This signifies disconnection. It may just be a temporary reaction to stress, but if it’s been going on for some time, it could indicate a relationship decline,” said Robert Taibbi, L.C.S.W., on Psychology Today.
4. Some Secrets Are Clearly Floating Around
If you have that gut feeling that something is going on behind your back, or that your partner has checked out, you’re (sadly) probably right. And one indicator of this is secrets, or the ever-present suspicion of them. “They have become more secretive about where they are, who they are with, [and] who they are talking to,” Martinez says. Of course this can go both ways, so take note of your own desire to be sketchy and secretive.
