Signs of a Breakup
We have all heard the saying that “breaking up is hard to do”.
While this can be true, there are several signs that can help
you predict when a potential breakup is about to take place.
Recognizing these indicators will allow you to prepare for a
breakup, and perhaps even save the relationship before it
crumbles. Here are five warning signs of a breakup.
Distant Behavior. This is the most common behavior associated
with relationship troubles. In this phase your partner
suddenly becomes quiet and disengaged in your presence. They
offer very little substance to your communication, and you find
yourself struggling to maintain dialogue. Frequent uses of
apathetic statements like “I don’t care” and “I don’t know” are
indicators that they are going out of their way to avoid
Avoidance. Nothing is worse than being pushed away from a
loved one, yet this is a common tactic used in breakups.
Ignoring phone calls, working longer hours, and spending more
time with friends are all indicators that you are being
avoided. Unfortunately, this behavior can often lead to more
devious behavior such as lying and cheating.
Confrontation. Another sign of a pending breakup is the
display of confrontational behavior. You may experience that
your partner challenges you on everything you say, or argues
about the most trivial of problems. This strategy is used to
create the illusion that you are incompatible as a couple. It
can leave you feeling as if everything is your fault, when
actually you have done nothing wrong.
Disappearing Friends. Sometimes the clues that things are not
going well are found in the shared social network of you and
your partner. You may find that good friends begin to ignore
you, as they have chosen to side with your partner. This can
even bleed into family members. Perhaps you considered
yourself close with your partner’s mother, but now she barely
speaks to you. This is a bad sign that discussions about your
relationship are being held behind your back.
Threats and Ultimatums. Threatening behavior is not always
physical. In fact, some people use verbal threats to
manipulate others. Breakup threats used to make you feel
uncomfortable in your relationship and second-guess yourself.
Ultimatums on the other hand are specific conditions
communicated by your partner that must occur in order to
prevent a breakup. Both of these tactics take advantage of
your fear of rejection to exploit you.
In most instances of failing relationships, multiple examples
of these behaviors can be found. Typically the unhappy partner
will do anything they can to create tension and confusion within
the relationship. Those who fall victim to the manipulation
often wonder why the aggressor simply doesn’t break up with
them if they are unhappy. The answer to this mystery revolves
around accountability. For whatever reason, the aggressor does
not want the responsibility of ending things. They would rather
make your life so miserable that you have little choice but to
breakup with them. It is how you deal with this situation that
determines how things will end. For strategies on how to save a
