4 Signs Your Relationship Has Lost Its Spark

In a rush of fury, disagreements, and emotion, some relationships fall apart. In other circumstances, the alterations are more subtle, with a gradually widening gap between partners until it becomes impossible to bridge. More often, one individual will sense a rift emerging. Other times, it comes out of nowhere, and all they can do is watch as their relationship falls apart around them, wondering what they could have done differently.

Have things gotten boring and you're no longer getting butterflies when you see or chat with your partner? Don't be too concerned. It isn't always a sign that your relationship has lost its spark. It's sometimes just a reflection of you two getting into that comfortable zone where you don't feel the need to go above and beyond. So, if you're worried about the missing spark, here are four ways to figure out what's going on in your relationship.

The trust is gone - It's difficult to regain trust when your partner has had an affair or just fails to meet promises. It's an obstacle to any genuine connection if you don't feel like you can trust the person who you are in a relationship with. A committed relationship's foundation is trust, and a lack of it hollows it out from inside.

Your goals are no longer in sync - When partners want different things, it's one of the most difficult disconnects to accept in a relationship. It's difficult to realign your hopes if you don't have the same life goals, no matter how much you care for each other. Even the most loving of relationships can be hampered by opposing goals.

There is no emotional connection anymore - It's difficult to know if a relationship is worth saving when the flame has faded. One feature of lovers that should not be compromised is their ability to emotionally connect. If you are no longer vulnerable and open with your lover, this is one of the primary symptoms that your relationship is ending. You prefer to keep your feelings to yourself and refuse to tell your partner about them. Both partners should feel comfortable communicating their thoughts and opinions with one another, which is a cornerstone of happy and healthy relationship.

It's difficult to reach a consensus on anything - When the arguing is unrelenting, to the point where there are just a few moments of calm before you and your partner can agree on a decision peacefully. This is a major warning sign. The spark is no longer there and either of the partner can't step down for the other in decision making.
