7 Signs Your Relationship Is Fading Away
Romantic Relationships have their ups and downs. One moment your partner might be over heels in love with you. And the other moment you or your partner might start feeling indifferent, and not so enthusiastic about the relationship anymore. When this happens, you’d realize that the love flames, the excitement, and the romance is gradually fading away. And it leaves you wondering what could be the reason or the cause for such? You start struggling to make things work the way they were, or even better.
You start asking yourself or your partner some questions, but yet he/she keeps saying they are busy and would make time, which they never do. Or you simply don’t even know why you feel the way you do towards your partner.
A whole lot of times, when this happens you keep asking yourself if you are at fault your relationship is fading away or your partner is just drifting away from you, and the reasons.
Hence, below are signs that show your relationship is fading;
1. There are more assumptions than asking questions.
Sometimes, it is okay for you or your partner to assume things. But when it happens more often, it will breed room for mistrust, and doubts. When you or your partner are not certain about a thing, it’s important that you ask your partner important questions for clarification, so as to clear your doubts and build trust again. Therefore, when it’s done the other way, it will create more harm to your relationship.
2. You are in a fading relationship when intimacy has grown cold.
Intimacy is needed in a relationship to spice things up, and also make you and your partner bond more, and understand your emotional needs better. But when the relationship is fading off, either you or your partner would find it difficult to sit close to each other, to cuddle each other, or even kiss each other. It is understandable that when either you or your partner are faced with some life’s situations, you tend to be unsettled emotionally, and this might affect how you bond and talk things out. But when this happens, in a healthy relationship, it is paramount, that the both of you see each other as good friends, and confidants and talk about your challenges amicably.
But if it’s the other way round, then it’s obvious that your relationship is fading away.
3. Less checking on each other.
One of the ways to spice up your relationship and keep the love flames burning is to reach out to your partner either through sweet romantic text messages or by calling to check on them during the day.
But when the act of either calling or sending romantic love messages has now become cold, due to giving excuses like being busy, it shows that in no time your relationship won’t hold any grounds sooner or later.
4. There are more arguments and fights.
Yeah, no relationship is perfect, right? You and your partner are from different backgrounds, who were raised with different morals, and values.
Hence, it is tentative that you oftentimes do not agree on all things. But when this arises, it is paramount that you both have healthy fights, and argue calmly. But when it’s the opposite, in which you or your partner find yourselves complaining about almost everything more often, compared to when you guys have good moments.
Then it’s a great sign that the love sparks are gradually dying, and if not taken care of, your relationship would fade away in no time like a puff of smoke.

5. Communication has become cold.
One of the bedrock of a good, healthy romantic relationship is communication. It’s important that you and your partner communicate about the things going on in your lives.
Good communication would help the both of you love each other more, and bond better. But if it’s the other way round, in which you and your partner now rarely even talk about things, with time you’d realize that you’re drifting apart, and if care is not taken, you’d see your relationship going south.
6. You are now less of a priority.
We tend to give attention, and priority to things that are of great importance and value to us.
Therefore in a romantic relationship, when your partner tends to now give more attention to his/her job, or other things than they give to you, if caution is not taken, in no time your relationship would fade off.
