If you are in a relationship, it’s really important to learn how to tell if your boyfriend is not happy. Often, unhappiness turns into anger and resentment and in the long term, it can really damage your relationship. Just watch out for all those signs that indicate you that your partner is unhappy, so you’ll be able to save your relationship and even increase the intimacy in it. Because men do not excel at expressing themselves openly, try to look for signs of discontent, so you’ll be able to work on those issues and solve them. Here are a few helpful tips on how to tell if your boyfriend is not happy:
1. Talk to Him
The best tip I could give you on how to tell if your boyfriend is not happy is to tell you to simply talk to him and see what’s wrong. You may even find out that the cause of his unhappiness has nothing to do with you and in this case, you should simply be there by his side supporting him.
2. He Stops Trying to Solve the Problems in the Relationship
Have you noticed that your boyfriend has stopped trying to solve the problems in your relationship, no matter how insignificant or big they are? Well, this should get you thinking because a man’s natural inclination is to attack problems head on and to try to solve them. Does he let a lot of things slide? See what’s wrong and fix it together.
3. He Agrees with Everything That You Say
Is your boyfriend agreeing with everything you say, even if it’s something that you know he doesn’t want to do? A healthy and happy individual should tell you what they like and what they don’t like and what they want or what they don’t want to do.
4. He Stops Communicating
I don’t want to use stereotypes, but studies show that men don’t communicate as openly as women do, so if you notice that your partner has stopped communicating and that he keeps everything to himself, then you should ask yourself why he does that. Just talk to him and find out the reason behind his unhappiness and help him solve that problem.
5. He Lacks Initiative
Does your partner lack initiative and this hasn't happened before? Is he quieter or does he often seem preoccupied with something? Try to find out the reasons why all these things happen if you want to save your relationship and help him solve his problems.
6. You Are Not Having Fun Together
If you've noticed that you and your boyfriend are not having fun together anymore and that he wants to spend most of his free time with his friends and family rather than to do something fun with you every once in a while, then you should try to find out why he is avoiding you. Did you do something that upset him deeply or does he need more space?
7. Watch for the Signs of Cheating
If you want to find out if your boyfriend is not happy, just watch for the signs of cheating in your relationship. I don’t want to generalize, but some unhappy men (and women sometimes) deal with their dissatisfaction in the relationship by cheating on their partners. Just notice if he gets nervous while he answers other calls around you, if you are having less sex or if he acts differently around you.
There are a lot of signs that can tell you that your boyfriend is not happy in your relationship. I just mentioned a few but I’m sure that there are many more I could add to this list.
