The Subtle Signs Your Boyfriend Is Unhappy in Your Relationship
When you and your significant other have been together for a while, it is possible (and probably normal) that you'll feel distant from them at some point along the way. But if it keeps happening a little too often, then he may not be as invested in the relationship compared to before. Here are some signs your guy is unhappy and losing interest:
He always picks fights with you.
Arguing is normal in any relationship, but if he always begins petty fights with you for no logical reason, then he may be creating drama and finding an excuse to break it off because he isnât satisfied with the relationship anymore.
He's distracted most of the time.
Is he always on his phone when you two are together? Margaret Clark, a professor of psychology at Yale, found that "people who attach more value to their possessions may be less secure in their personal relationships than those who put less value on material goods." Whether you like it or not, his habit of constantly scrolling through his feed could indicate that he's not content with what you two have and is finding joy somewhere else.
He's doing more and more things without you.
Spending time with your respective friends, having alone time and family bonding are important but so is your couple time. If he hangs out with his friends way more than an available you, then there must be a problem. Just be careful when it comes to talking to him about it; and make sure that you do give each other enough space, too.
He gets cranky over the little things.
If you notice your beau being upset over the smallest issue, he's more likely to be unhappy—he's just not being direct about it.
He doesn't put in that much effort anymore.
Relationships take a lot of work and effort. Before, he'd excitedly plan date nights and surprises for you but lately, he's in no mood to even talk to you like how he would in the past which means he doesn't bother trying and is maybe just waiting for the right time to break it off.
He's being secretive.
To be clear, even though you're in a relationship, you still have the right to privacy, but if your partner is being too secretive, then he may be hiding something that'll hurt you. An article from the Huffington Post states that hiding things and having a sudden change in behaviour could be a sign that's he's not being loyal.
Relationships can get hard, but while it's good to analyze situations, the best way to deal with conflict is still by talking to each other and being open with your issues. And remember, if things don't pan out, it's not the end of the world. Single people sometimes have more fun!

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
