Living far apart from your boyfriend is never fun. Here are some indicators that your long-distance partner is losing interest if you're having issues.

That's what hurts, too. Continue reading to discover the warning indications that he's losing interest in the distance relationship. Keep your heart safe.

How to recognize the warning indications that a long-distance partner is losing interest

Long distance relationships are a horrible idea, everyone tells you, yet some people don't agree. Long distance relationships can be beneficial in some cases.

Is it simple? Obviously not. However, it may not always be a bad idea. You can get through those challenges as long as you both share the desire to communicate.

But, not all relationships are meant to last. And long distance relationships certainly have their own set of issues, which add pressure.

With the distance between you, it’s easy to get distracted by other people and activities, forgetting the person who’s miles apart from you *this is why communication is essential.

If you’re serious about the relationship, it’s important that your partner is on the same page as you. So, if you feel something is going on, look at these signs he’s losing interest in the long distance relationship. If so, you’ll be able to talk with him and see where the relationship should go.

1. He doesn’t communicate with you

If you are long distance, all you have is communication. But if he’s not calling or texting you consistently, it’s a clear sign he’s not fully investing in the relationship.

Maybe it’s the distance. Maybe he doesn’t see the relationship as something serious. But the point is if he was interested he would be investing the time in talking to you.

2. You feel something is off

When you first met, the sparks flew. But now, you feel there’s something off. He doesn’t have that spark in him when he talks to you. There’s no excitement anymore.

But if you feel there’s something weird with his behavior, something is going on. And if you feel it in your gut, then you better pay attention to that. Your intuition is almost always right and never lies. So, don’t ignore it.

3. You initiate everything

He’ll reply to your texts, but he’s not reaching out and sending you any messages first. You find yourself pushing to see each other, and he’s not showing much excitement.

You feel like you’re the one doing all the work and that’s probably because you are. This is a huge sign that he is losing interest in the long distance relationship.

4. No more talks about the future

You used to talk about the future and create goals together, but those conversations have died down. That’s not a good sign.

Long distance couples must talk about the future and make plans. If you’re not making goals, then there’s no point in being together. And if he’s not talking about the future with you, maybe it’s because he doesn’t see you in it but he just doesn’t want to come right out and say it.

5. He cancels plans

You booked a weekend getaway to see each other, but he canceled the trip at the last minute. Something happened with work or school; it doesn’t matter.

If he was really interested, unless it was an emergency, he wouldn’t cancel plans to see you. Canceling plans is a passive-aggressive way to let you know that he’s not interested in continuing the long distance relationship.

6. He doesn’t want to talk too long

You don’t have many options when it comes to communication. It’s either talking on the phone, FaceTime, or texting.

When you do have a chance to talk, he makes sure it doesn't go on for too long. He is less and less willing to speak with you.

7.You're not envious.

Jealousy is common in distant relationships. You don't want other ladies to approach you when you're away from your girlfriend.

However, it's concerning if he shows no emotion toward you when you're among other men. He doesn't seem to be concerned.

8. He becomes more and more busy

Not all men are frank about their desires and demands. He might like you, but he has no interest in ending things.

So, to avoid a confrontation, he keeps himself busy and comes up with reasons not to speak to you. Come on, you know in your heart that nobody could really be that busy.

9. He doesn’t text back

Or he takes hours to reply. Either way, it’s not a good look. When a guy is interested, he replies to texts as soon as he gets them. If he’s taking longer to reply or his messages have shortened, it’s a sign he’s creating distance.

People do this on purpose when they don’t want to be direct about how they feel about you. He’s hoping you get the hint that he is no longer interested in the long distance relationship. He might even hope you break up with him first.

10. He tells you he doesn’t want a serious relationship

When you first met, he whispered sweet nothings into your ear. But now that he’s had a taste of long distance, he’s changed his song and dance.

Now, he’s telling you he’s looking for a casual relationship and nothing too serious. He might even refuse to refer to you as his girlfriend anymore.

11. You’ve taken a backseat

You don’t feel like you’re a priority in his life. And if you don’t feel that, then it’s true. He’s not pulling his weight in the relationship, and he’s no longer the partner that he used to be.

So, until he meets you again, he will put you on the back burner. You must acknowledge to yourself that he has people and things higher importance than you.

12. You avoid bringing up romantic relationships.

Every partnership has problems; it's human nature. It's important to talk about your problems since it will help you become a better person and partner.

But it doesn't sound like he's into being in the relationship if he's not interested in resolving relationship problems. He has most likely lost interest and is therefore uninterested in resolving the situation with you.

Relationships that are far distance require a lot of work. However, it's crucial that you discuss it with your spouse if you notice any indicators that he is losing interest in the long-distance relationship. Find out what he is actually considering.
