Being with someone that you really love is both exciting and rare. Many people choose to be in relationships together, but there are lots of examples where the affection is just not there and the relationship is only lasting due to convenience. However, most of the time, everyday habits that make you less engaging to your partner can cause a problem.

I think that love and care are things that you have to wake up and decide to do every day. Here are 10 everyday habits that make you less attractive to your partner.


You always talk about yourself, in excess. Does every discussion have to begin and finish with you? If that is the case, then it could make you less engaging to your spouse. A relationship should include both people communicating about things; not only one speaking and another listening.


It looks very bad when you intentionally ignore anyone. In any relationship, communication is an essential thing. If you are ignoring a person who doesn't deserve it, then you are being very rude to that person. People could be doing things other than talking to you, so why not give them your complete attention for a while? Certainly, you may not want to hear what they have to tell you, but that does not mean you just ignore them.


No one would desire to be around you if you keep on complaining all the time. If you have this habit then you will need to find a way to work on it. Consistent complaining makes you look unhappy and bitter.


Sarcasm can be enjoyable when you use it with your friends. But when you are attempting to attract the attention of another person, being sarcastic just makes you sound degrading and it will not make a positive impression on that person.


When you are not open to trying different things and not ready to come out of your comfort zone then this can be an unattractive habit. If your partner likes sports and you don't, try and find a happy medium between the two. This can help you both stay in a good relationship.


If you are constantly interrupting people when he/she is talking about something, avoid this habit as soon as possible. People don't like it when you interrupt them when they are discussing something serious. You should think of what you want to say and wait until they are finished. After that, you can tell them about your point of view or an idea.


Your partner may want you to listen to them about their day or how they feel. But instead of just listening to him/her, you tend to give them your opinion. This habit of yours might annoy your partner, so learn when to listen and when to give your opinion. Certainly, then you can offer to help, but knowing when to just listen will help your spouse from becoming frustrated with you.


Your body language speaks a lot about you before you say anything. People who sit with their arms folded or hunch their shoulders give the message of lack of confidence, defensiveness or concern.


When you are always doing something for yourself and not giving time to your partner, it can become annoying. Everybody has some work that they need to remove from their daily to-do list. Being ‘busy’ can be good sometimes, but don't let it become a regular term you utilize.


Ensure that you don't turn a date into an interview with a premeditated list of questions which you asked someone on a date last week. Nobody will like a date if they are grilled with interview questions, which are forceful and unnatural.

      @Robin Carretti,

      Thank you so much :)

      Yeah that's true. In this busy work we surely need to find some time for our partner.
