Relationship problems are a pain

When you’re having a hard season with your significant other, it can feel like everything is falling a part. Every little thing they do can work your nerves, and casual conversations can turn tense at the drop of a dime. But this ebb and flow is generally normal.

“Rough patches are a part of the relationship. Our partners, like us, go throw so many changes over the course of a relationship,” Dr. Joshua Klapow, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist and Host of ‘The Kurre and Klapow Show,’ told Elite Daily.

“We need to be careful not to attribute changes in the nature of the relationship, our emotions, or their emotions, to falling out of love,” she recommended.

But there are some times you just feel downright out of love, and you start to do little things to pull away from your partner under the strain of the relationship.

“You may feel generally happy and are cordial to your partner but you just seem to be packing your schedule with more activities,” Dr. Klapow said. “It may be more work, more time with friends, or others, just more time without your partner.”

Here are some other things you may do when you’re feeling over your relationship.

Avoidance

“You avoid your partner,” Dr. Klapow said. “You’re not arguing or appear mad, but rather you are doing more and more things on your own. You check in less with your partner, less discussion — you simply go at it alone.”

You’re Making More “Me Time”

“You may feel generally happy and are cordial to your partner but you just seem to be packing your schedule with more activities,” Dr. Klapow says. “It may be more work, more time with friends, or others, just more time without your partner.”

Distancing

“When there feels to be a misfit, a distance that despite our efforts to come together is growing farther apart, it is possible that the relationship has indeed come to a point of no return,” Dr. Klapow explains.
