It's no secret that texting can play a substantial role in communication for many couples. It's fast, it's easy, and when you're not together, it's a great way to let each other know you care. Unfortunately, in some situations, you might notice the signals from texting that your partner wants to break up. Although it can be easy to overlook changes in how your partner communicates via text, it's important to recognize that ignoring the red flags could mean getting blindsided in the end.
According to LA-based couples therapist Dr. Gary Brown, while certain texting behvior might indicate that a partner could be contemplating a breakup, it's not always a good idea to come to such a drastic conclusion from texts alone. However, if you suspect your SO could want out, Dr. Brown recommends starting a dialogue ASAP. "In a non-judgmental way tell your partner what you are thinking and feeling and see how they respond," Dr. Brown tells Elite Daily. Even though starting conversations like this can be really scary, it's better to know what's going. This way, if something's up, you can have an honest conversation about it. And if it turns out there's absolutely nothing wrong, then you may choose to let go of your concerns.
If you've noticed the following changes in your partner's texting habits, then it might be time to speak up.
