During the beginning stages of a relationship, it is common to be blinded by lust and overlook red flags. It’s important to train your mind to recognize the warning signs. “Your subconscious can see things you cannot see, it feels things you cannot feel or describe; so listen to your inner instinct,” Post Relationship Coach Mick Owar says. “Follow your gut, always.”

If your partner has been showing lack of excitement in the relationship or has been acting distant, this may be a sign the relationship is rocky. For instance, “when our partner decides to participate in activities alone and without you, it may send a Red Flag of deliberate distancing,” Dr. Karen Phillip, Sociologist, Relationship Authority, says. “Partners, while participating in their own individual activities at times, often enjoy and appreciate their partner watching.” However, if they reject you attending or becoming involved, it may mean they are disassociating themselves from your coupleness, she adds.

Relationships can be tough, they take hard work; you may be doing everything that you can to keep it in tact but if your partner is not participating, and you’re doing all the work, it may be time to re-evaluate your situation.
