Female intuition is always something you should pay attention to, especially when red flags start popping up in the beginning of a relationship. However, there are many more reliable clues that indicate an impending break up.
Even if your man isn’t discussing future plans are focused on him alone, there are plenty of signs that make his intentions clear. If you notice more than 5 signs from the list, your relationship might be headed for splitsville.
1. He’s More and More Busy with Work
Work isn’t always an excuse or a lie for a man that’s looking to end a relationship. Many men focus on work and put in extra hours in order to get a sense of positive achievement when things aren’t going smoothly in their personal lives. Focusing more on work can be temporary, so you shouldn’t jump to conclusions when this is the only clue.
2. You Sense a Lack of Intimacy
One of the biggest signs he will dump you is a lack of intimacy that manifests itself in many ways. The most obvious clue is when he keeps conversations neutral, and avoiding any topics that involve the two of you together. He might show an interest in your life, but only in the things that will keep you away from him, like your work.
3. His Body Language Shows That He’s Distant
A man’s body language can often betray his intentions. When you’re sitting down on the couch together and his torso is mostly angled away from you, that’s a clear sign of his desire to be as far away from you as possible. Don’t confuse a night where he’s tired with a pattern that clearly shows he’s distancing himself from you.
4. No More PDAs
If you’re looking for signs he will dump you, the lack of public displays of affection is a big one, especially when you know he’s not uncomfortable with PDAs. It might be a conscious decision or simply another clue in the body language of a man who’s planning to be single soon. If he used to be physically closer to you, but now it’s just you that wants to be closer to him, your relationship might be heading for a break up.
