Have you ever met someone and instantly had a strong and beautiful connection with them? If you said yes, you already know what a lovely sensation it can be. When you're in the midst of an amazing feeling, everything feels great.

However, in a relationship, many things go unnoticed, which may be an indication of something in the long run. And it isn't necessarily a good thing. Have you ever felt disconnected in your relationship, as if you are the one putting forth the most effort? This could be an indication of a one-sided relationship on one side. Analyze more signs to determine whether or not you are in a one-sided relationship.

What Is One Sided Relationship?

one sided love

A one-sided relationship is an imbalanced interpersonal relationship in which one person puts up more effort or where one person wields more control. This imbalance can be caused by a variety of reasons, including one person being more dedicated to the relationship or one person being more engaged in it. This is not a good sign for a healthy relationship.

Signs Of One Sided Relationship

1. Initiate Most Communication

It's a red flag when one person is rarely the one to reach out and establish first contact while the other is the one making all of the attempts to communicate. If you are the one who is always putting forth effort, as well as being expected to plan every conversation, initiate nearly all interactions, and organise a big portion of what you do together, it is time to have a dialogue and open up about your concern.

2. You Second-Guess Your Worth

When you go out of your way to make the relationship work and make your partner feel seen, it can be a blow to your self-esteem when it isn't returned. In reality, it isn't a reflection of your worth or ability to be loved, but if a relationship that should make you happy makes you feel insecure or makes you doubt your worth, it shouldn't be that way.

3. They Show Little Interest In Your Life

This sign is kinda obvious but often gets overlooked. When you're in a relationship, talking about each other's lives becomes second nature. However, it's not a good indicator if your partner doesn't pay attention when you talk about your life or has no idea what's going on in your life. If you believe you are the only one here putting an effort to learn about them and it is not the same from his end, this could be a sign of a one-sided relationship.

4. You Are Constantly Making Excuses For Your Partner

Playing defense is good, but only on the soccer field, not for relationships. If you're constantly justifying your partner's conduct to your friends, family, and coworkers, it's possible they're seeing something you're not. People close to us may notice unhealthy behaviours in a relationship before we do. If you have been told by a friend or family member and you frequently find ways to defend their doubts, try not to do so for a change and instead take a thorough look and determine whether they are correct or not.

If you've been experiencing questions about your relationship for a long time, it's time to examine it. If your partner isn't showing enough care for you and your relationship isn't making you happy, there's no reason to stay in it. It is always your choice whether or not to be in a relationship, therefore make it a wise one. I hope you find a fairy-tale love story that you deserve.
