Now, before we jump into the signs he thinks he’s losing you, let me start by saying that I don’t know your relationship with your partner. Sometimes, we try to get our partner’s attention by pulling back from the relationship in hopes of them seeing what they’re going to lose. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t.
When we pull back, we come up with all sorts of tactics and tricks to let our partners get the wake-up call we think they need. I get it. I’ve done it before. But, you know what, it didn’t work for me.
If you’re trying to get your partner to see what they’ve taken for granted, the best way to do that is by moving on.

11 clear signs he thinks he’s losing you
Now, I know you’ll still want to know the signs he thinks he’s losing you. After reading these signs he thinks he’s losing you, what’s important is to ask yourself whether these signs even matter. If someone doesn’t see how special you are, why bother trying to get them to see that? Now that’s the question you need to answer for yourself.
Sometimes, this may be because you’re actually losing interest in him. At other times, it may be because your mind is occupied with something else.
Or the most painful of all, you’re hurt by the way you’ve been treated by him. And now you’re trying to distance yourself from him and are giving him the cold shoulder so he can see your worth.
On one hand, he may realize he’s losing you and start making amends. Or on the other hand, he just just start backing away too. No matter what the reasons behind your distance are, ask yourself if you see any of these signs in your relationship.
If they’re unintentional and you’ve just been busy, start focusing on getting closer again. But if you’re doing this to see if he’ll make the effort, well, you’ll know the answer soon enough.
So does he think he’s losing you? Here are all the things you could be doing that makes him wonder if the two of you are drifting apart.
