It’s important to detect whether someone is worth dating or not. We all live busy lives these days and we want to be sure someone is worth the time and effort. To know whether someone is really worth it, we need to be clear about what we want for ourselves, and what traits we find essential in other people, especially in that special someone we are likely to end up spending a lot of time with.
So before starting the dating process, make sure to take some time out for yourself to think about what you look for in others, in particular in that special someone. Don’t be afraid to ask yourself questions – just make sure you answer honestly! And do the same with that person you’re thinking of dating – what are they like? What do you love about them? What are you not so impressed with? Can you put up with their “shortcomings”? Does the good outweigh the bad?
This is a great exercise to clarify your feelings about this person and to ensure you know what it is that attracts you to them, even though these are fluid aspects that can, and will, change through time and with experience.
First of all, is he losing interest or just stressed?
It hurts when we feel that the special someone in our life may be losing interest – we feel attacked in a way, or we might feel a sense of abandonment. These feeling are completely normal and to be expected! But is he really losing interest? He may well just be going through a particularly stressful moment in his life that means his attention is divided.
To make sure we’re not worrying over nothing, the best thing to do in these situations is to confront the matter head on and talk it out, in an honest, open conversation. It will do you both a lot of good! It’ll be a chance to reconnect with one another and ensure you’re both on the same page. You might even be able to help each other destress or resolve some issues that are causing the stress.
Signs he’s losing interest
So if he is losing interest, how will this manifest? What are the signs to look out for? It could be a variety of things, from changes in his messaging patterns, or a lack of interest or drive during intimate moments, or lack of initiative in terms of relationship plans and activities. He may not be very forthcoming or responsive when asked about these behaviours directly, or he may suddenly become defensive, ashamed or even aggressive, in extreme cases. Also, there may be signs he’s losing interest through text messaging, if he ignores messages or delays his replies.
It’s important to know what to look out for in order to detect it early on and be able to act on it. Try talking to your friends, or his friends, to see if they are also experiencing the same behaviours from him as you are.
Loss of interest may even be concealed, for example he may appear to be interested when in fact his interest is waning but he doesn’t know how to talk about it. It is crucial to create a safe space within the relationship in which both partners feel that they can express themselves freely and clearly, and without judgment. No one should be made to feel ashamed about the way they feel in a relationship!
Signs she’s losing interest
So what are the signs a woman can give to detect that she is losing interest? Again, this might manifest in many ways – physically, emotionally, verbally, intimately, etc. There might be less interest when it comes to intimate moments between you, or you might notice her being less responsive when it comes to conversations or messaging, or she might feel a little more distant when it comes to being physically and emotionally close. There may be a decrease in affectionate behaviour, for example, or less interest in what’s happening in your life.
It’s important to know what to look out for so we can spot it when it first appears, and act on it before it gets too big to handle. Having said that, we should also bear in mind that some partners are good at concealing their loss of interest as they don’t wish to hurt their partners. This can sometimes be difficult to detect.
Once they lost interest… can you get it back?
Once a guy loses interest, can you get it back? Can interest be revived once it’s lost? Good news – we think it can! Although this depends on each individual case, the best thing to do is to talk it out, so we can understand the reasons behind the loss of interest. Depending on the exact causes, we can start to rebuild interest. In some cases, it might be best to realise that the relationship has come to its natural end and it may be more beneficial for both parties to part ways, hopefully amicably!
So they have lost interest in you; how do you get it back? In many cases, there are steps that can be taken to revive lost interest. For example, there may be certain specific things one of the two partners isn’t getting from the relationship that they used to, for example attention, a sense of being loved, affection, being listened to, emotional support, etc. We may not be aware of this if the partner in question keeps these feelings to themselves for fear of hurting us or the relationship!
A short break together, a romantic meal, a cosy night in together may all be good ways to revive lost interest and reignite that spark that got you together in the first place!
Is there hope?
We believe that if interest is lost in a relationship, all is not necessarily lost. It’s crucial to have an open and honest conversation around what both parties are feeling and what their need, thoughts and fears are in order for both to be on the same page and to be able to work something out together.
