Ways to Tell if Your Boyfriend is Not Happy



If you are in a relationship, it’s really important to learn how to tell if your boyfriend is not happy. Often, unhappiness turns into anger and resentment and in the long term, it can really damage your relationship.

Just watch out for all those signs that indicate that your partner is unhappy, so you’ll be able to save your relationship and even increase the intimacy in it. Because men do not excel at expressing themselves openly, try to look for signs of discontent, so you’ll be able to work on those issues and solve them.

Watch for signs of cheating

If you want to find out if your boyfriend is not happy, just watch for the signs of cheating in your relationship. I don’t want to generalize, but some unhappy men (and women sometimes) deal with their dissatisfaction in the relationship by cheating on their partners. Just notice if he gets nervous while he answers other calls around you, if you are having less sex or if he acts differently around you.

Talk to him

The best tip I could give you on how to tell if your boyfriend is not happy is to tell you to simply talk to him and see what’s wrong. You may even find out that the cause of his unhappiness has nothing to do with you and in this case, you should simply be there by his side supporting him.

He stops trying to solve the problem in the relationship

Have you noticed that your boyfriend has stopped trying to solve the problems in your relationship, no matter how insignificant or big they are, this should get you thinking because a man’s natural inclination is to attack problems head on and to try to solve them.


Is your boyfriend agreeing with everything you say, even if it’s something that you know he doesn’t want to do? A healthy and happy individual should tell you what they like and what they don’t like and what they want or what they don’t want to do.


I don’t want to use stereotypes, but studies show that men don’t communicate as openly as women do, so if you notice that your partner has stopped communicating and that he keeps everything to himself, then you should ask yourself why he does that. Just talk to him and find out the reason behind his unhappiness and help him solve that problem.


Does your partner lack initiative and this hasn’t happened before? Is he quieter or does he often seem preoccupied with something? Try to find out the reasons why all these things happen if you want to save your relationship and help him out.


If you’ve noticed that you and your boyfriend are not having fun together anymore and that he wants to spend most of his free time with his friends and family rather than to do something fun with you every once in a while, then you should try to find out why he is avoiding you. Did you do something that upset him deeply or does he need more space?
