According to Steve Harvey, author of the popular novel Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, “A man’s love is expressed in three ways: he declares his rights to you in public, he protects you, and he cares for you.”

However, part of this saying can be questioned because, in our time, not all women need the support or protection of men. What they definitely need is love. Unfortunately, sometimes women tend to see love when it doesn’t really exist.

Sometimes a woman can feel that something is wrong without having to hear it from her partner. We have put together a list of 5 signs that a man’s strong feelings of love and adoration have disappeared.

We hope you don’t see these signs on your man, but it is important to know what to look out for.

Signs He Has Stopped Loving You

5. Criticism Of Appearance

5 Painful Signs He Doesn't Love You Anymore (Or Want You Either)

Omar Khayyam said: “A person will like everything, even the faults of his loved one, but he will be irritated by the perfection of those whom he does not love.”

For a truly loving man, you are always beautiful, even with messy hair and even in your oversized nightgown. He won’t realize you’ve put on a few extra pounds after winter break if you don’t say so.

But if your man constantly tells you to go to the gym or hints that you need plastic surgery, don’t be in a rush to satisfy him.

It is more likely that it is not your appearance that does not suit him, but you yourself. And even if you lose weight, he will find other flaws in you.

4. Discussing Your Shortcomings With Friends

Women tend to discuss their partner’s relationship problems or disabilities with friends, while men try to keep things quiet. No one is perfect, but truly loving people focus on their partner’s strengths rather than failures.

If your partner allows himself to publicly humiliate you and laugh at your flaws, don’t expect anything good in that relationship.

Such a partner does not respect you, and a strong and reliable union is impossible without respect.

By criticizing you with other people, he is unconsciously trying to show others (and himself) that it is your fault that he stopped loving you.

3. His Attitude Toward Your Habits

Women like to complain about male socks scattered around the house, but sometimes they also have irritating or weird habits.

We like to occupy the bathroom for 2 hours and talk as much as possible with friends, fill the closet with unnecessary things, eat from our boyfriend’s plate, or sing the same song all day.

Loving men, as a rule, endure all this and remain silent or react with humor. If your man constantly scrutinizes every little thing you do and makes negative comments about your behavior, it means the only feeling left is irritation rather than love.

2. Attentiveness To Your Stories

Scientists have shown that a man can listen carefully to a woman for only 6 minutes. So ladies, the next time you plan to have a conversation with your loved one, keep it short.

The subjects that it is very difficult for a man to focus on are strangers, celebrities, shopping, fashion, and diets. If possible, it is best to discuss these kinds of things with your friends.

And yet, if a man realizes that something is very important to him, he will endeavor to listen carefully, even if the subject does not interest him at all.

When he loves you, he doesn’t leave you unattended. But if he keeps changing the subject or running away with different excuses every time you try to speak, your worries probably won’t bother him.

That way, he will not participate in the solution of problems that may arise during the relationship.

1. His Attitude Toward Your Emotions

Men absolutely cannot stand women’s tears. And recently, a scientific explanation has been found: female tears have been found to contain special volatile substances that reduce the level of testosterone in the blood of men, leading to a decrease in sexual desire. Therefore, do not use crying as a means to influence your loved one often.

In fact, when you cry, the only thing a man wants is to run away and not see. But if he loves you, he will pull himself together and do whatever he can to try to comfort you, even if the reason you are crying seems trivial to him.

It won’t settle down until you smile again. However, if he doesn’t love you, your tears will be just one more reason to be mad at you.
