Teenagers are notorious for not understanding the proper way to call it quits in a relationship. A lot of times, they are just not mature enough to handle telling the other person they no longer want to be with them. Instead, they feel the need to try to spare their ego (not wanting them to look like the bad guy) and slowly terminate the relationship, or make it so you do the breaking up and NOT THEM. Here are some signs, he may want out.
DOES NOT CALL AS
MUCH OR NOT AT ALL.
Do you remember when you first met. It was non stop talking on the phone. Now he barely even returns your phone calls. You can never locate him and it seems like he has simply fallen off of the face of the earth.
When you are in a relationship, it is common knowledge that you should call your boyfriend or girlfriend. If not, then why are they dating you? Granted, dating is not marriage but there should be a small bit of commitment. You should not have to chase your boyfriend all around town via phone just to say hi. Sorry, but this may be a clear indication that he may not want to speak to you anymore because he does not want to be with you.
WANTS TO HANG OUT
WITH THE “BOYS” ALL THE TIME.
Okay, so he doesn't have to give up his home boys, but what about spending at least 5 minutes in person with you? If he is dating you, he needs to either find a better way to spend time with you, or go date one of the boys. More than likely, he is probably just slowly slipping away and letting you know, his boys are a tad bit more important then you right now.
IS PRESENT IN BODY
BUT ALWAYS APPEARS
TO MENTALLY BE SOMEWHERE ELSE.
So, you finally got him to chill out with you, but it feels like you are sitting next to a mute stuffed animal. Do not get me wrong, every man or boy should come with a mute button, but at your request. If your boyfriend is flat out not listening to you, it is time to listen to that small voice and move on.
By the way, this could be another sign...
SHRUGS OFF YOUR FEELINGS CONSTANTLY!
Doing all of the above listed below is definitely a clear indication that he does not really care about your feelings. If he did, then he would be picking up the phone at random and spending some extra time with his favorite gal. At this point, actions speak louder than words. Even if he tells you he wants to be with you...he does not.
YOU START SEEING HIM MORE IN
PICTURES THAN REALITY!
If you find yourself staring at pictures of your boyfriend more then you are physically seeing him, the relationship is probably over. At this point it does not matter who dumped whom, it is truly time to move on. If you wanted to date a picture and not see your boyfriend, you can easily find a hotter boyfriend in some random teen magazine.
If your boyfriend is exhibiting any of these signs, he probably wants to break –up or wants to push you to just drop him. In all honesty, any person who does not have the guts to be honest with their feelings is just not right for you, because they do not understand how to handle their own emotions. There is nothing wrong with you if a relationship does not work out. You are not worthless or a bad individual because someone decides that they want to break it off. Plus, the nature and longevity of teen relationships are relatively short. It may suck now, but moving on to someone new who cares for you, is not a bad idea.
