Secret unhappiness can gradually wreck a relationship; it’s important to be observant of when your partner is secretly unhappy, as it’s best to resolve issues when it first arises.
If you are observant, there are so many signs your partner lets out when he / she is secretly unhappy.
1. GIVES PHONE MORE ATTENTION
When your partner spends more time on his / her phone and gives it more attention than you, it’s a sign that your partner is secretly unhappy with you and is using the phone as a short-term replacement for you.
2. BECOMES QUIETER
This is another possible sign that your partner is secretly unhappy. People let out this sign when they are secretly unhappy or when are up to something. If your partner cuts communication with you drastically and become quieter, then it’s a sign your partner is secretly unhappy.
3. GIVES SHORT ONE-WORD RESPONSES
This is more like a defence mechanism people use to avoid talking about a subject or to show disinterest. When your partner starts giving short one-word responses then it’s a sign your partner is secretly unhappy.
4. SEX BECOMES STALE
Sex can also be an indicator for secret unhappiness. When your partner becomes unresponsive to sex or avoids sex totally then this is an obvious sign that your partner is secretly unhappy. Sex needs a huge amount of connection to be enjoyed, but when there is no sexual connection, it could be as a result of your partner being secretly unhappy.
5. CUTS OFF COMMUNICATION
A couple in harmony communicates well; however, when communication gets cut off immediately, it’s a sign that your partner is secretly unhappy. Communication can rarely go hand in hand with unhappiness.
6. BECOMES LESS AFFECTIONATE
When your usually romantic partner becomes less caring, less affectionate and less loving, it’s a huge indicator that something is terribly wrong, and your partner is secretly unhappy.
7. SUDDEN CHANGE IN BODY LANGUAGE
Body language can also show everything. If you are observant enough, you would notice a change in your partner’s body language. Change in body language could be shown in the reaction and communication of your partner, facial expressions expression and overall general behaviour. A change in body language from positive to negative could be a sign that your partner is holding some grudges in mind.
8. BECOMES DISRESPECTFUL
This is also another probable sign that your partner is secretly unhappy. When your partner becomes rude and disrespectful to you all of a sudden, it could be as a result of a grudge or a secret unhappiness that’s troubling his / her mind.
9. KEEPS THINGS FROM YOU
When partners are comfortable and happy with each other, they would tell each other things and rarely keep secrets; but the same cannot be said when one partner becomes unhappy secretly — this could make your partner withdraw and keep things away.
10. IS DISTRACTED
When your partner becomes distracted and pays less attention to you; rather than spend time with you, such a partner would spend time doing less important things. Distraction could be as a result of budding unhappiness in the relationship.
These signs show that your partner is secretly unhappy, and it’s best to solve this little crisis at this beginning stage, before it escalates and harm your relationship.
