Everyone has different views of how men should behave towards the special women in their life. According to Steve Harvey, the author of the popular novel Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, “A man’s love is expressed in three forms: he declares his rights for you in public, protects, and takes care of you.”
While you could argue that, in our time, not all women need to be provided for or protected by men, what they definitely need is love.
Sometimes a woman can feel that something is wrong without having to hear it from her partner. The website Bright Side recently gathered a list of 10 signs that a man’s love had faded, and made illustrations to demonstrate what they mean.
In isolation, any one of these can be a misunderstanding. But if your man is displaying a number of the following list, it might be cause for concern.
1. Criticism of appearance
2. Discussing your shortcomings with friends
If your partner laughs at your failures like this in private, it can be hurtful in itself. But if he does it publicly to humiliate you, that’s another level of disrespect, and you should not expect anything good from such a relationship.
Such a partner doesn’t respect you, and a strong and reliable union is impossible without respect. By criticizing you with other people, he is trying to prove to others (and himself) that it’s your fault that he stopped loving you. It isn’t.
