Sometimes, people drift apart.

You're in a relationship, and nothing's really bad, exactly, but things are different.

Little things start bothering you, maybe, or little red flags start waving around in your head.

It can be painful or painless – it really all depends on the couple.

Either way, here are 13 signs you and your partner might be drifting apart.

1. Less Intimacy

Here, I'm not talking about sex – that's another sign altogether.

Intimacy is an entirely different matter, and when your relationship is missing it, you will notice it.

You and your partner may, over time, simply stop showing each other any affection.

You may not cuddle at night, or hold hands, or do intimate activities together any longer.2

2. Lack of Communication

Communication is the key in any relationship.

It is such an integral part that, again, you will probably notice this fairly quickly.

You two might still be talking to each other, but you may no longer be communicating anything about your feelings, your moods, and so on.

You might not be discussing the really important things.

3. Nothing to Talk about

Then again, you might not be talking at all – about anything.

Realizing that you and your partner no longer have anything to talk about can be a gradual process.

It is not uncommon for some couples to simply realize it one day, like they've been hit with a ton of bricks by the realization.

4. No Common Interests

Sometimes you don't have anything to talk about because you don't have any interests in common any longer.

Maybe you never had any interests in common in the first place, but in the beginning it may not have mattered.

Many couples go into this situation thinking their lack of common interests is a good thing because it allows them to keep up their individual lives.

That can certainly be true, and many couples may survive this issue – but it can also make you grow apart as time goes by.
