Relationships aren’t always easy. Signals get crossed. You take each other for granted. Life sometimes gets in the way. Sometimes this leads to one or both of you being unhappy and unsure of what move to make next. While communicating these feelings would be an excellent start, life doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes, she just starts making plans to leave. But what are the signs your girl’s got leaving on her mind?
She Stops Making Plans for the Future
At least, she stops making plans for the future with you. She’s stopped sharing them with you. She’s stopped asking what’s on the calendar and trying to talk you into going to family events, planning for vacations, or anything else along those lines. She’s even stopped talking about future living arrangements. That’s a huge red flag that all isn’t right in paradise.
Girls are forever making plans for the future. In fact, women begin planning their wedding days in kindergarten right down to the dress, flowers, cake, and party favors. It’s a big deal. When she stops hinting at wedding bells down the road, it means her mind is moving on. Her body will follow soon.
She’s Suddenly Started Working Longer Hours or Looking for a New Job
Women get worried about their ability to support themselves right about the time they plan to leave a relationship. This is especially true if you’re living together and/or if there are children involved. Financial independence will be extremely important to her as it may determine her ability to support herself and her child or children.
The extra hours at work help her set aside a bit of a nest egg so that she doesn’t walk away from the relationship with nothing. A new job can represent higher income and opportunities for advancement in the future.
She’s Spending Less and Your Joint Savings aren’t Growing
The money is going somewhere. Either she’s socking it away somewhere or she’s spending it on someone (or something else). Unless you have a birthday coming up or Christmas is close, this is typically cause for concern.
The key, in each of these situations, however, is not to panic. She may be thinking about leaving, but she hasn’t left yet. You still have time to turn the tides in your favor. You just need the proper roadmap to follow that all but guarantees your success. Follow the right map and you’ll find your way back into her heart and good graces in no time.
