Sad and thoughtful man after arguing with girlfriend

How can you tell your partner is not happy with you? What are the clues that he is unhappy in the relationship? Though our LA matchmakers know there are some outright hints, sometimes it can be very difficult to tell. Secret unhappiness in a relationship is much scarier than obvious grief, because it could be happening and you might not even realize it.

Today, our LA matchmakers here at Los Angeles Singles Dating Service are going to show you the telltale warning signs your boyfriend is not happy in the relationship.

1. He can’t remember important things you said.

This is one of the things we are all guilty of from time to time. After all, how many times can we really listen to our guy go on and on about last Sunday’s game? But it turns into a sign of something more toxic when they can never seem to remember the things we’ve said, including important things in our lives.

If we need to tell him six times that there’s a family reunion on Sunday, and he still made plans with his friends that clash with it those plans, something’s wrong. He might just not be as invested as you are.

2. He is passive aggressive.

Come on now. Do we really have to say it? One of the issues that we tend to run into in relationships is this attraction we have to sarcasm. Witty, dry humor just lights everyone up. But with that can often come bluntness and passive aggression, and that’s not healthy.

It’s not a great thing, though, especially if the passive aggression builds over time or seems to come out of nowhere. Irritability is definitely a sign that something is going on in the relationship. Even if it’s not irritability from unhappiness in the relationship, it needs to be addressed and handled properly.

3. He rolls his eyes.

On the opposite side of aggression is dismissal. We all know how unhealthy this can be in a relationship, as well as how it can stay with us for a long time. A partner telling us that something we think or like is silly, bad, or useless can really take a toll on us. While this isn’t directly related to the end of the relationship, it is a huge red flag.

Mutual respect is key for a relationship, and nobody you frequently roll your eyes at has much respect for you. If your boyfriend is constantly rolling his eyes at you, dump him.

4. He checks out other women.

Some couples do like to mutually comment about other people on social media – perhaps innocently sharing about our Uber driver being super cute. But there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed.

Openly staring when you two are together on a date is a recipe for disaster. While he doesn’t have to keep his eyes on you all the time, there should be an understanding that the two of you are in an exclusive relationship. If your boyfriend is treating you like this, he doesn’t care about you or the relationship.

5. He always warns friends and other males not to settle down.

Have you heard him telling, or more like warning, other guys not to get a girlfriend and settle down? If so, he’s openly admitting that he’s unhappy and has made a mistake. He’s warning other guys not to make the same mistake.

As much as you might not want to believe he considers it a mistake, then why else would he be saying it to other guys? He’s not happy in the relationship and influences his friends to stay away from getting exclusive.

If you’ve been questioning your guy’s happiness lately, now you know the signs to look for. Do you see any of these warning signs in your relationship? Do you think he is unhappy or just going through a phase in life?
