If you think you are in a one-sided relationship, you might need to walk away because it’s the road to misery. Being in a one-sided relationship can leave you feeling like your relationship needs aren't being met because you feel like you are the one doing all the work. Its time to discuss your feelings with your partner if you recognize any of the signs are in a one sided relationship.
1. You Initiate Communication
You have to initiate text messages and phone calls to him. If you don’t do it, you would never hear from him even if several days have gone by. If you leave voicemails, you have to call back repeatedly because he never returns your calls. Text messages can go unanswered for days because he just doesn’t have time to respond. You may be in a one-sided relationship if you always have to be the first one to make contact.
2. Dates Are Rare
A couple will often fall in a comfortable routine and have plenty of nights watching Netflix wearing pajamas and eating pizza. But many couples will dress up and hit the town on the weekend enjoying each other’s company and socializing with friends. In a one-sided relationship, you are the one that always has to initiate the dates. He never invites you to do fun things even on his days off.
3. He Prefers His Friends
When your boyfriend does feel like going out, he doesn't invite you to come along. You ask him to spend time with you but he rejects the offer. He prefers calling up his friends and hanging out with them, leaving you bored and lonely at home. It doesn't bother him that you feel left out of his social circle. He hasn't even introduced you to his friends or for that matter, his family.
4. Short Conversations
Whenever you want to talk to him, the conversations are always short. You are the one that comes up with open-ended questions to try to keep the conversation going. He always seems like he doesn't have any interest in the topic you are conversing about regardless of what it is. He keeps his answers short and they're always one word answers so he doesn't have to talk to you long in text messages or over the phone.
5. Always Missing
If you have a problem going on in your life, he steers clear of you. He ignores any text messages or calls that are about the problem you are facing. You won’t hear from him until you have found a solution to your problem. Guys are often eager to help their girlfriend whenever they have a problem. A guy that isn't invested in a relationship doesn't care if you are dealing with issues and need help to solve them.
6. He Doesn't Care about You
You get the feeling that he doesn't care about you because he doesn't show any interest in your daily life. A caring boyfriend always wants to hear how your day is going. He will send funny or thoughtful text messages throughout the day. Your boyfriend doesn't know what is going on in your life on a day to day basis because he never asks.
7. Relationship Problems
Whenever you try to talk to him that your relationship needs aren't being met and you feel like you are in a one-sided relationship, he rolls his eyes. He doesn't want to work out any problems that you are having in the relationship. You are the one that has to figure out how to resolve problems because he won’t put in the effort. His I-don’t-care-about-you attitude should be enough to leave this guy in your rear-view mirror.
Ladies this is not the kind of partner that will enhance your life and be willing to commit to a long lasting relationship. What other signs made you realize you are in a one-sided relationship?
