Falling in love can happen seemingly out of nowhere. You meet someone and it suddenly feels like your life will never be the same again. At other times, love can creep up on you slowly. Every day, you and the object of your affection grow closer while your connection deepens. It's the same way with falling out of love. It can come seemingly out of nowhere, or it can be a slow process wherein those feelings fade over time. And if you can't recognize the behaviors that mean you’ve fallen out of love, you might not even consciously realize it's happening until it's too late.
You might think that something as monumental as falling out love would be hard to miss, but according to Connell Barrett, Dating Transformation founder and dating coach with The League, it's often overlooked because you don't want to see it. "Denial is a powerful thing. You may not want to believe you’ve fallen out of love because that would lead to complications and possibly a breakup, and no one likes the pain of a breakup. At the same time, your behavior might reveal true feelings that you’re not fully aware of," he tells Elite Daily. But one way to cut through the denial and get honest with how you feel deep down is to take a closer look at your behavior. "Human beings are like radio towers — we’re always broadcasting through our behavior how we feel inside," Barrett explains. So, if you suspect you've lost that loving feeling, these are the behaviors that say it just might be the sad truth.
