Have you ever been in a one-sided relationship? It is a labeled relationship and the guy next to you has the title of your boyfriend but he doesn’t act like one.
It is a relationship in which you are doing most of the work and putting in all the effort. A relationship in which you feel like you are alone and like you are the only one who cares.
When you find yourself trapped in this type of relationship, getting out is never easy. But there are some signs in its initial stages that can help you see that your relationship will be a one-way one and here are 5 of them.
1. You initiate the communication
When you are in the honeymoon phase of a relationship, the guy you are seeing should be all over you. After all, he should be in love with you and it is natural that he wants to spend every minute of his free time with you.
But your relationship is different. Because you are the one who initiates almost all of your communication and dates.
You don’t think that a guy should always be the first one to call a girl but the fact is that this man acts like he would never wish to see you or talk to you, unless you called him.
2. You are the one who makes all the sacrifices
In your relationship, compromise is never an option because you are the one who always has to make all the sacrifices.
You are the one who always has to reschedule your plans and who has to adjust herself to him. You are the one who always picks him up and the two of you always go to places where he wants to go.
When you come to think of it, you are always the only one putting the effort in for him to like you more. But he never does anything similar and he acts like he never takes your needs or desires into consideration.
3. He puts you last
If you are at the bottom of your boyfriend’s priority list, one thing is for sure—your relationship will be a one-sided relationship in the future.
Don’t get me wrong—you and your boyfriend are just starting your relationship and it is perfectly natural for the two of you to have your separate interests.
It is perfectly natural for the two of you to have your own friends and family and nobody expects your partner to put you in front of everyone right from the start. But he also doesn’t have to be putting you last.
Because, after all, you are his girlfriend and it is his duty to make you feel like you have an important place in his life if he plans on having a serious relationship with you.
But your boyfriend behaves completely the opposite.
He often cancels your plans and puts literally everyone in front of you. You always feel like you are his backup plan and the person he calls only when he is lonely and when everyone else is busy.
4. He is not interested in your life
Another early sign of a one-way relationship is the fact that your boyfriend appears not to have the slightest interest in your life.
When you come to think of it, you highly doubt that this guy knows when your birthday is, who your best friends are or what your favorite food is.
Yes, the truth is that the two of you are just getting to know each other but on the other hand, you know all of these things about him.
And why? Because you’ve listened to him carefully. And you can’t say the same thing about him.
This man is never interested in your life, family, friends, job, hobbies or interests. He never asks you how your day was or if there is something bothering you.
Well, one thing is more than obvious—this man is clearly not interested in you either.
5. He doesn’t show you his love
There are some people who keep their emotions to themselves, especially in front of someone who has just became a part of their life. And there is nothing wrong with that because we all process and express our feelings differently.
But when it comes to your relationship, this guy you are with has never shown you any sign of his love. He has never made even a small gesture that would prove to you that you are important.
And if you are honest with yourself, you’ll admit that you don’t see or feel his love. Well, I hate to be the one to break it to you but if someone acts like he doesn’t care for you, maybe it’s time for you to start believing him.
