If you have a sneaking suspicion that your partner has lost interest in you, it can be hard to know for sure. However, if you know what signs and behaviors to look out for, it makes it much easier to tell.
With that being said, it can be a terrible feeling to have when you think your partner is losing interest, especially if you are still feeling it. But the sooner you rip that bandage off, the sooner you can move forward and heal or work on making the relationship better.
And while aside from flat-out asking your partner, there is no sure way to tell, it helps to read between the lines.

Where you once were a priority, he no longer views you as such. Now, anything and everything is more important than spending time with you.
