4) They’re dismissive of your feelings
Not being capable of empathy and compassion towards the upsetting emotions your partner is experiencing is often a sign that they just don’t get you.
They may also have a tendency to minimize your problems. There is a disconnect because they cannot seem to grasp that even when the problem doesn’t seem such a big deal to them, your feelings about it are strong nevertheless.
If your partner makes you feel like you should just ‘get over it’ when something is wrong, you’re bound to feel misunderstood.
5) You feel distant
- There’s a tangible uncomfortableness that hangs in the air sometimes.
- Spending time in silence together is awkward.
- You sometimes feel lonely, even when they are around.
Perhaps at the beginning of your relationship you didn’t notice as much, you were too busy doing fun activities and having a laugh together.
But as time goes on the void between you two may have grown. Relationships progress and develop by moving beyond just surface exchanges.
Sharing your thoughts, feelings, and opinions as you open yourselves up to one another creates a sense of familiarity and attachment.
