Signs someone's getting tired of you.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but many of us are better able to deal with people at a distance. We tend to get along much better! All hell breaks loose the moment we have to live with them every day.
There are instances where we have to move in with a partner, friend, or relative. Sometimes due to circumstances beyond our control.
While many are open and warm at first. There are times when we can tell that the royal treatment is coming to an end and we have overstayed our welcome.
Below I'll share with you some signs that someone is getting a bit tired of you.
1. There's a change of attitude.
There are visible changes in their attitude. Their tone is harsher and their body language is unwelcoming. They get mad for reasons you sometimes don't know about.
Most often, a passive-aggressive type of behavior. They'll slam the doors. Bang the pots and pans. Sulk for hours, without ever saying a word to you.
2. You seem to be a burden to them.
Everything has become a chore. They don't get excited to do the things they used to do for you. They'll take long deep breaths. They might throw their arms in the air, fold them with an attitude or stomp their feet in frustration.
3. They throw shades at you.
They'll call you names and mumble things beneath their breath whenever they're around you. They'll pretend as if they're talking to themselves, but it's loud enough for you to hear and you know that they're throwing shades at you.
4. You can't seem to impress them anymore.
It seems to be an uphill task to meet their needs. Things that used to wow their eyes, no longer suit their taste. There's a fault with everything. You're running out of ways to please them.
5. They don't talk much.
You don't get much out of them. They're not as chirpy as usual. They say little to nothing. Conversations are forced and limited to very few words. Sometimes nothing at all.
6. They no longer take you places with them.
They'll dress up and leave. You don't know where they're going. When they're coming back and they no longer ask if you want to accompany them. You now have to assume that they're going to X place because of the way they're dressed or a conversation you overheard them saying they are going somewhere.
7. They try to limit or deny your access.
They may limit your access to their food, entertainment, and other things in the house. They might put a lock on their food pantry and refrigerator. Limit your time in the shower and set a strict curfew when you have to turn off the lights at night.
8. The atmosphere is super tense.
They are a ticking time bomb. You don't know if and when they'll go off. You're afraid of doing something that they don't like. You're afraid of saying something that might upset them and you're always hoping that they'll come home in a good mood.
9. They disrespect you.
For example, going through your stuff and using them without asking. Closing the door in your face. Changing the channel when you're watching the TV, etc.
