People say that love can’t see, and for some, that’s mostly true. In fact, love can be so strong that we often put up with disrespect from our partners that we would never put up with from anyone else.
A happy and healthy relationship needs more than just trust and love. Respect is the most important thing. It’s important for relationships to have in order to grow and stay stable. Without respect, no friendship can last for a long time.
You might put up with a rude partner for a while, but at some point, they have to go. Of course, love can make it hard to see when someone is being rude right in front of you.
A lot of the time, you might even be doubting yourself. But there are some clear signs of rudeness. Here are six signs that your partner doesn’t care about you.
1. They always cut you off when you are talking.
It’s impossible to talk to your partner because they always talk over you. They talk over you before you can finish a thought.
It’s okay to accidentally cut someone off now and then, but if someone always talks over you, that’s a big sign of disrespect.
2. They don’t care about how you feel.
Your partner does things all the time without thinking about how they might make you feel. For example, they might make big choices about your life without asking you what you think. They could also change your plans at the last minute without telling you first.
3. They disrespect your family and friends.
Your partner should treat the people you love with respect if they respect you. People should treat others with care, even if they don’t like or get along with them. That works both ways, of course.
4. They tell you lies.
You always find out when your partner is lying to you. They act like it’s not a big deal when you catch them lying. However, if your partner lies all the time, it shows that they don’t value you and that you can’t trust them.
5. They do not respect your privacy and autonomy.
You are your own person, and your partner doesn’t care about that. They are always going through your things, following you, or wanting to know everything about you.
Of course you want to know what’s going on in your partner’s life, but it’s completely unreasonable to want to be in charge of everything they do.
6. They flirt with other people.
It’s normal for people to feel interested in people who aren’t their partner. However, it is a completely different thing to have a partner who talks about that in annoying ways all the time or who flirts with other people right in front of you.
