A mature man will have no problem telling you that he doesn’t want to date you anymore. He will be decent enough to tell you in person instead of ghosting you or treating you poorly so you can dump him. If your boyfriend has been acting weird lately, take a look and ask yourself if he’s doing any of these things, If he’s guilty of a few, he’s definitely looking to break up with you. Unfortunately, you’re dating a man-child and doesn’t know how to break up with you the right way. Ladies, you’ve been warned!
Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the telltale signs your relationship is headed to breakup territory.
- He tells you that you’ll be happier with someone else.
This is one of the shadiest things to hear from a guy, especially the guy you’re in love with. If you’re talking with your boyfriend about the future and he tells you that you’re going to be happier with someone else, it’s because he clearly doesn’t see a future with you. Wasn’t he the one you were supposed to be happy with in the future? Didn’t he always talk about your future together?
- He praises you in weird ways.
If a guy is giving you compliments on your accomplishments or body, that’s awesome. But if he’s praising you and keeps saying that you’re amazing and that you deserve someone else, he’s hinting that he doesn’t want to be with you down the road. If he’s telling you that he’s not good enough for you and that you deserve someone better, look out—a breakup is around the corner.
- Nothing you do is ever right.
He criticizes you for the way you make his coffee in the morning, how you eat your burger, how you talk to your friends, and even how you sneeze. He is finding any excuse to get into an argument with you so you’re the one who walks away from him.
- He’s always in a bad mood.
Sure, he’s been in many bad moods before, especially due to work. But now it seems like he’s living under a black cloud. You might write it off as work-related stress or family issues, but if he’s full of laughter on the phone with his friends but suddenly turns when he sees you, then something is up. He’s clearly not happy with you anymore.
- He doesn’t want to see your family.
He used to love spending time with your loved ones, but now he’s quick to come up with excuses as to why he can’t make it to their get togethers. When he does come, he sits on his phone the entire time and looks moody (like you forced him to attend).
- He’s acting weird on social media.
You’ve chatted on the phone with him, but he cut the conversation short and told you he was going to bed. Afterwards, you got on social media and saw he was online. Is he chatting with someone else? If he’s lying to you and acting inconsistently, that’s a major sign he’s looking for an exit.
- He’s putting himself down to you.
Lately, it seems like he’s always talking poorly about himself or mentioning how poorly he treated girlfriends in the past. These are huge red flags he’s trying to get out of the relationship. By portraying himself as a bad boyfriend, he’s telling you that you deserve better.
- He stopped putting in efforts.
Has your boyfriend become lazy lately? Has he stopped paying for dinners? Does he always ask you to pick up the bill? Has he stopped dressing up when you go out together? Has he stopped doing the little things he used to do? If your boyfriend stops making an effort, it’s because he doesn’t want to be in a relationship anymore.
A guy who’s ready to walk out of a relationship will be guilty of some of these behaviors. Yes, it’s messed up, but that’s the way immature men end a relationship. You are definitely dating a man-child and are better off without him.
