Are You in a One-Sided Relationship?

You meet someone in your life. After days of talking, you get attached to them. They start being important to you. You later realize that they mean a lot to you. You don’t know how it happened. You just know that they are an important part of your life that you don’t wanna lose.

However, even after spending a lot of time with them, you are still unsure about yourself. You are not confident enough that the other person really likes you as much as you like them. You are not sure if you are important to the other person as much as the other person is important to you.

A few days later, you notice that the other person does not want to talk with you anymore. They start making excuses to avoid you. This shatters all your hopes and dreams of having a future with the other person. You start feeling hurt about it. If you had noticed the signs earlier that the other person doesn’t love you back, you may have avoided getting hurt later. The following are the signs that you are in a one-sided relationship.

Feeling like you are lacking in some way

You don’t feel complete enough after spending time with the other person. The other person does not make you feel special, although you find them special. You always have self-doubts that you are not the perfect partner for them. You sometimes think that you don’t deserve them.

Even after they talk kindly with you, deep inside you feel that they may not love you enough. You feel that there is someone out there whom your partner likes more than you. You feel that you are not good enough, and your partner does nothing to prove your feelings wrong.

Getting a feeling of emptiness after spending time together

After spending time together, you feel empty within. The feeling of emptiness will occupy a lot of space in your heart. The hardest part of losing someone is not saying goodbye, but rather learning to live without them. You would probably feel emptiness in your heart because deep down you know that your partner cannot fill the void in your heart even if you love them a lot.

Even after being so important to you, your partner does not make you feel assured that they will always be there for you. They never make you feel secure that they are never going to hurt you. You are not sure that they will be there to catch you if you fall.

Feeling insecure throughout the relationship

You start feeling insecure about yourself. You feel like there is someone out there who is a better fit for your partner rather than you. You doubt that your partner still loves their ex more than you.

You are not sure that your partner really loves you. You only feel like you are being a good friend. You are not sure if your partner considers you as more than a friend.

Lack of personal growth

You don’t improve yourself as a person after spending time with your partner. Your partner is not interested in helping you in your personal growth. They only spend time with you to get rid of their boredom.

They are not interested to see you grow. You help them a lot but they don’t want to help you back. You ask them a lot of things to show that you care. They don’t ask anything about you. They are not interested to know how you’ve been.

Fear of disappointing your partner

You fear that they may leave you one day if you do anything wrong. They blackmail you that they will not talk to you again even if you do a single mistake. They start taking advantage of their importance towards you.

You try your best not to disappoint them. However, they don’t care if their actions hurt you. They won’t even tell you sorry after hurting you. They just treat you like something to waste time with, and they don’t actually care about your feelings.


Always love yourself and make yourself a priority first. Don’t let any people take advantage of your love. Loving yourself is not selfish, because you won’t know how to love someone else properly if you don’t know how to love yourself first. If there is someone who doesn’t like you for being you, there will also be someone else who will love you for being just the way you are. If there is someone who finds you imperfect, there will be someone else who considers you as a perfect person. Don’t let the rejection of one person bring you down.
