How to Tell if Your Boyfriend is Losing Interest in You
If you follow the weekly questions of my Online Advice Column Dear Annabelle, you might have seen Paranoid's question about her boyfriend's potentially waning interests. One of the biggest fears in a new relationship is whether your relationship is going to go to the next level or fizzle. If you find yourself wondering what his next move is going to be, you need to read this article to figure out...
He Stops Paying Attention to you:
Did he miss your new haircut or forget your birthday? Do his eyes roam every time you go out to dinner. If a man is interested in you, he pays attention! He compliments what you're wearing and tells you that you're pretty. You're going to catch your guy checking out a girl from time to time (no matter how frustrating) but if they're doing it all the time; there's a problem.
He's Going Out with his Friend and Not Inviting You:
If he stops inviting you to go out with his friends, that could be an indication that things are going south. If a guy is into you, he wants to spend time with you and include you in his plans. The other side of this is that his friends probably don't have the best poker face. Without a doubt, his boys know that he's about the jump ship and your boyfriend is worried you might figure it out by their awkwardness (or even worse, one of them might spill the beans).
He Spends Less Time with You:
If your boyfriend is suddenly making a lot of excuses not to see you, that could be a sign that he's losing interest. He might cancel plans with you because he's very busy at work, helping a friend out or moving furniture at his parents... All of these excuses might appear legitimate but a man who's emotionally engaged would figure out a way to do both. There's no reason he can't pop by afterwards or at the very least call you when he gets home. If it feels like he's avoiding he, he just might be.
He's Losing Interest in Sex:
If the two of you were all over each other in the beginning and suddenly he's too tired or stressed from work to have sex, that's a sign. Men like sex. They like sex so much that they have sex with strangers and consider it a conquest. If your guy isn't having sex with you, he's either getting it somewhere else or at the very least, considering it.
He Cancels on Social Functions:
Couples do things together. They go to weddings, picnics, birthday parties, you name it. If he's all of a sudden cancelling on "couple" events, it might be an indication that he's not feeling like a couple anymore.
He Stops Calling:
This is normally the last and most crucial sign. If a man stops calling you there's a problem. A lot of men don't actually want to break up with you. It's messy. The last thing they want to do is sit next to us on the couch while we're crying. Seriously. As sad as it is, a lot of men just stop calling when they've lost interest. They'd rather avoid the break up and hope we get the hint.
