25 Mind-Blowing Psychology Facts About One Sided Love

Before we begin, please note that mood swings, low self-esteem, anxiety, and euphoria are all signs of a one-sided relationship. With that being said, we recommend you find help if you are experiencing long-term symptoms like depression and guilt.

1. Communication

If you are in a one-sided relationship, you will always be the first to initiate a conversation with your partner. This is because he or she does not find interest in you and will not care about your opinions. Test this out by not initiating a conversation for a whole day and he or she seems relieved by your silence, move on! 

2. Texting Or Checking Up

If you are the one who always texts or checks up on your partner, it indicates a one-sided relationship. Test this out by giving him or her space for a day or two and see if he or she calls or checks up on you. If they don’t move on!

3. Perfection

You think your beloved is perfect regardless of how they make you feel, how they look or how they treat you. You always find excuses for their actions no matter how bad they make you feel. They in turn find fault with everything you do. If you continue to hear that you never do things right, move on!

4. Priority

They always come first in your eyes, your beloved is on your mind when you wake up in the morning, all day long, and before you go to bed. You put them first in everything you do. If you are always last, he or she is always too busy, you hear the word “rain check” too often or the feeling of neglect is always lingering, move on!

5. Feeling Drained

If you are suddenly feeling drained physically and emotionally, it may indicate that you are always on the giving end of the relationship. It is putting a strain on you and you need to stop! Remember that you are just as important and worth being loved! Move on!

Always imagining having a conversation in your head that feels so much better than real conversations with him or her? It could mean that your beloved has something bugging him or her but most often, it is a sign of one-sided love.

7. Loyalty

If you love your partner more than they love you, you will be a loyal part of the relationship. Loyalty will come easily on your part but don’t expect the same in return. 

8. Seeing Them In Everything

Find yourself picturing your hubby’s face in the faces of strangers or hearing their name in your head? When you are in love with someone, you will see them in everything, hear their voice all the time in your head, and rational thinking is your enemy! 

9. Rejection

If you are in a one-sided relationship, you will often find yourself being rejected. Even with little things like offering your help with something will get rejected. This is because they don’t want to be around you and may think of you as nosy or nerve-racking! Move on!

13. Feeling Unhappy

Studies show that a healthy relationship brings along happiness and satisfaction. One of the early signs of a failed or one-sided relationship is unhappiness. If you find that you are unhappy in your relationship, it’s time to sit back and evaluate your relationship.

14. Apologizing

Are you constantly apologizing for things you shouldn’t be sorry for? Being in a one-sided relationship will cause self-guilt and low self-esteem. This is caused by constant blaming, the lack of reciprocation, and attention from your partner. Remember that if someone loves you, they will want you to be happy.

15. Justify His Or Her Behaviour

If you always find yourself trying to justify your partner’s behavior to your family and friends, you need to think about the root cause. You see, when someone is in love with you, they will love and respect your friends and family as well. Disrespect and less interest in your loved ones from your partner is a strong indicator of less interest in you!

16. Ask For Small favors

Do you find yourself always asking for small favors from your partner? Well if you have to ask your partner to make you a cup of coffee while he is making his, or hand you a napkin when you have a runny nose, it represents neglect. Neglect is also a sign of a loveless relationship.

17. Trying To take On A Different Persona

Do you have to be someone you are not when around your partner for him or her to show interest in you? If that is the case, it means that he or she does not love you! Love is blind, love knows no color nor does love have borders. When someone truly loves you, they love YOU! With all your flaws and even when you are having a bad hair day, they will love you no matter what!

18. Wanting The Best For Them

Being in a one-sided relationship will make you wish that your partner is happy even if they are not happy with you!

19. Perfect Scenarios

When you are in love with a person who doesn’t love you back, you will always imagine perfect scenarios with you and that person even when you know that it will never happen.

20. Destroyed Mentally

Psychology says that people should never get too attached to someone unless they are certain that the person feels the say way towards them. If they don’t it can mentally destroy you!

Please know that you can never make someone love you just because you love them. If you find yourself always giving all you got in a relationship and not getting anything in return, it is time to take a self-evaluation.
