Relationships are one of the most amazing things you will experience in life. A happy relationship should be filled with love, care, fun and happiness. However, both people in the relationship need to provide these things. If you find that you are going the extra mile for your partner but your boyfriend or girlfriend is not doing their best to put you first in the relationship, this could be a clear sign that you are in a one-sided relationship.
You may start to think that your relationship is one-sided when you start to notice cues and traits from your partner such as differences in communication, body language, and actions. It can be very painful and painful to realize that you are in a one-sided relationship, especially when you feel like you are making all the effort. It can be painful to face the fact that your other half simply isn’t trying anymore.
Sometimes, your boyfriend/girlfriend may simply be busy with work or college, and they simply don’t have time to put in as much effort as they used to, however, it may be that they have stopped caring as much and the relationship has become one-sided. These are the signs if your relationship has become one-sided.

How to make a long distance relationship work
1_ They rarely call you
If you’ve been waiting days to hear from your significant other, it’s a clear sign that they’ve lost interest in the relationship and you have other priorities on their mind. If your girlfriend or boyfriend never texts you or rarely replies to your messages, then they won’t be interested in staying in touch with you and it’s clearly not important to them. If you’re not the one making the effort, then pretty soon you’ll go days without hearing from them.
Also, if they respond with only one-word or few-sentence answers in each conversation, they’ve stopped making the effort to talk to you and you’re clearly the only one making the effort in the relationship.
2_ You feel like you are bothering them when you call them
I have sent them texts and messages and they have not responded or responded with very little conversation. You want to keep the conversation going, but if you message them again, you feel like it’s only going to annoy them.
You shouldn’t feel like you’re bothering your partner by wanting to have a conversation with them. You try not to contact them for a while out of not wanting to be annoying. You should feel comfortable talking to your partner about anything, and you shouldn’t feel unable to contact them without it being an issue.
3_ They are not enthusiastic about making plans
If you are the only one making plans and organizing things, this is a major sign that you are in a one-sided relationship. If the other person isn’t excited to see you and make plans to meet up and do things, the relationship isn’t working out. Both of you should be equally excited to see each other, and both people in the relationship should make an effort to make plans to meet up and hang out or go on dates.
4_ They would rather work/hang out with friends than see you
If they put everything in their life ahead of you, including work, friends, social life, etc., then they won’t make an effort to make you a priority in their life. Everyone should work and make a living, but if they choose to work overtime and put their income in front of you at all times, it’s not fair on you emotionally.
They prefer hanging out with their friends, which makes you wonder where they are, what they’re doing, and why they’re not with you. If they want to hang out with friends and go out drinking all the time instead of spending any time with you, then you are definitely in a one-sided relationship and you should reassess your situation ASAP.
5_ You are constantly worried about the relationship
If you are constantly feeling anxious and anxious about your relationship due to it being one-sided, then you need to talk to your partner about it and think about whether you will get the best out of this relationship. It’s always on your mind that the relationship isn’t working out, that they’re apart and whether you should break up.
The relationship should be filled with happy thoughts and excitement, not anxiety and emotional stress. If your relationship is making you extremely stressed and upset, then it’s not yours.
6_They have completely stopped caring
If the relationship has become one-sided, it could mean that they have completely stopped caring about you, which is very painful to realize, but if this is the case, have a conversation about it and ask them if they would really like to make this relationship work. They don’t care about your happiness or making you feel loved in your relationship.
You deserve to be in a relationship with someone who cares about you the most, not someone who can’t be bothered texting or calling because they can’t care less about you anymore. If he or she stops caring, ask yourself if it’s worth caring too.

7_ They take you for granted
If they don’t make plans, don’t make an effort with you, and don’t bother calling you, they may just assume you’ll stick with it and put up with it. They think they can get away with not making an effort in the relationship which is why it’s so important to communicate your concerns and let them know that you won’t wait until they call you when they feel like it.
They treat you more like a friend or companion who will put up with their crap. If your boyfriend or girlfriend takes you for granted, tell them exactly how you feel and that they need to do more with you or risk losing you.
8_ You feel like an obligation
Instead of wanting to spend time with you, it’s like they only spend time with you because they have to and they oblige, just to keep you happy.
Both partners in the relationship should be excited and excited to be with each other. One shouldn’t feel like it’s a chore that spending time with the other should be a priority, not an obligation.
9_ They don’t care about your life
They don’t ask questions about your life and what you do or are working on. They don’t care about the important aspects of your life including work, family, and friends. They don’t really know about anything that’s going on in your life. You ask them about things going on in their lives and they show an interest, but they rarely do the same.
This could mean that you are not important enough to them to care about the small or big things in your life and a clear sign that your relationship is one-sided. Your other half should be interested in your daily life and be interested in everything you do.
10_ They are not there for you emotionally
Don’t feel like you can call them when you’re having a bad day or are feeling down. You feel that they are not easy to reach and you cannot share your problems with them because of the fear that you will be a nuisance to them or that they will not be interested in helping you. You feel like your problems are going to be a burden to them and you end up keeping them to yourself.
If you don’t feel comfortable telling your partner things, it will cause you to feel unsupported and alone in the relationship. You do your best to keep them happy, but they don’t do the same for you.
