Five Signs That Your Relationship Is Becoming Stale


When you’ve been with someone for a while, it’s easy to go into “maintenance mode” and become lazy. But there are a few things you should never slack off with, guys especially. According to, here are five ways your relationship could be going stale.

#1.) You’re Lax About Your Appearance. Sure, you can be more relaxed around someone when you’ve been together for a while. But don’t forget that looking good, smelling fresh, and keeping in shape all help keep the attraction alive.

#2.) You’re Too Comfortable. Most couples in long-term relationships get to a point where they no longer hide their bodily functions from each other. And while that kind of, um… intimacy is inevitable, it can also make the romance disappear fast.

#3.) Forgetting Birthdays and Anniversaries. From a woman’s perspective, blanking on her birthday shows that you’re putting less effort into the relationship and her.

#4.) You Stop Complimenting Her. Women love attention and being told how beautiful they are. So if you never compliment her, especially on things like her hair or her clothing, she’s going to feel like you’ve stopped noticing her altogether.

#5.) You Don’t Compromise Anymore. This is a big one, guys. Women tend to be more likely to compromise by nature. But don’t take it for granted. If you don’t reciprocate, you might get shown the door.

I admit that I may be guilty of a few of these at times, and seeing this list is a good reminder for both guys and gals.  Pass this along to your significant other.  Perhaps it will prevent your relationship from becoming stale.
