How do you know when your boyfriend is losing interest in you?

You have the impression that he has suddenly begun to slack off in terms of your relationship. He seldom makes arrangements to get out with you or take you on lovely dates. He makes no effort, only the bare minimum. Perhaps he only responds when you text or call him and never initiates a conversation. You feel like you're wasting your time so you start looking for signs that he's not interested anymore.

Here are some indications that your boyfriend is losing interest in you:

He doesn't call you often enough. If your boyfriend used to call you every day at least once but now calls you only once or twice a week, he may be experiencing problems at work or with other relationships and doesn't need any stress in his life. Consider emailing or texting him more frequently than phone calling just to keep the lines of communication open.

He doesn't respond to your messages as quickly as before. Your boyfriend used to reply to your messages within an hour of sending them but now it can take him several hours or even days to respond. If he isn't giving you his full attention anymore, it's likely because there's another person out there who is so he doesn't have time for you.

He spends less time with you than before. Your boyfriend used to spend all his free time with you but now that you've become a distraction from his busy life, he feels he doesn't have time for you.

Is he losing interest or just busy?

Text him, phone him, or arrange a meeting. He is just busy if he answers to your messages or calls. Second, if you do all of the above and still do not receive positive responses, you are losing interest. He is completely ignoring you.

This would mean that he isn't interested in getting back with you. He may be having fun playing hard to get or may be just not ready to commit to anyone else at the moment. Try not to take it too seriously and move on to another guy who does want to get back with you.

Or he may be experiencing some issues at the moment and cannot give his full attention to you or any other girl. This can happen for many reasons including but not limited to family problems, financial difficulties, health issues or even if he is in prison. If he doesn't call or text you back within a few days, it might be time to let him go.

How do you know if your boyfriend doesn’t love you?

He pays little or no attention to you. When you try to talk to him, he claims he's too busy, and when he does, he doesn't even look at you; he avoids your gaze and probably pulls up his phone while you "rant and rave." Perhaps he no longer asks how your day went, how you're feeling, or even invites you out on a date. These are all signs that your boyfriend no longer cares about you.

The truth is that nobody really knows what goes on in another person's mind, but with today's technology, we can still get pretty close. Science has proven that there are three factors that play a role in whether or not someone loves you: physical attractiveness, shared values, and emotional availability. If your boyfriend doesn't pay attention to you or fails to show you care, it's time to move on because he doesn't love you.

People will always have different opinions on what makes someone love you. Some might think loving behavior includes going out of one's way for you or showing affection through acts and words. However, other people may believe that only certain behaviors qualify as love. No matter what anyone else says or does, only you can decide how you feel about something or someone. If he doesn't show you any sign of caring, then he isn't trying to prove that he loves you; he just doesn't think you're important enough to bother considering your feelings.

How do you tell if he’s playing hard to get or not interested?

Here are three indicators that he isn't playing hard to get; he simply isn't interested:

  • He doesn’t call, text or do anything with you.
  • He doesn’t reveal things about himself.
  • He waits too long to set up the next date.

How to know if your boyfriend still thinks about you?

A random "how are you?" SMS or phone call: Even though he is ignoring you, if he thinks about you on a regular basis, he will begin to miss you more and more. If he thinks any further, he will spend the entire day waiting for your text. If he hasn't heard from you in a while, he may become emotionally unstable and send you a strange text or call. Avoid these situations at all costs.

The obsessive fan: This one is pretty self-explanatory - if your boyfriend is a famous person, then there will always be someone who is going to do anything they can to meet him or talk to him. This person might wear out shoes standing in line for hours, dress up as his character from TV show, or even kidnap him. These people make our boyfriends very busy, so it's easy to forget them. However, if this person starts acting weird or doing things that scare you, then you should probably start worrying.

The stalker: This one is also fairly simple to identify - if your boyfriend is living with you, then he will likely begin to ignore you until you find another place to live. This may sound cruel, but he wants to keep his life normal so he doesn't attract any attention from law enforcement or other fans. He does not want to be a celebrity!

The killer: This one is probably what you have been fearing the most. If your boyfriend begins to act differently toward you or even hurts you, then you should definitely get out of there.
