Do you sometimes get the feeling that your partner may be embarrassed to be seen with you in public, but you’re not really sure? Trying to figure out if your suspicions are correct?
Well, here are six signs that can help you.
1 He/she ignores you in public
Have you ever passed your significant other on the street, tried to say hello and been totally ignored? Well, this is something that tends to happen when you are embarrassed to be seen in public with your partner.
If your partner avoids you in public or even asks you to ignore him/her in public, it may mean that he/she is ashamed to be seen with you.
2 He/she doesn’t introduce you to his/her friends
Have you noticed that since you’ve been together, he/she hasn’t introduced you to his/her friends? This could mean that he/she is embarrassed to be seen with you.
While it is normal for some people to be reluctant to introduce their partner to their friends at the beginning of a relationship, if the relationship has been going on for a while, knowing their friends should not be a problem.
3 He/she criticizes you
Criticizing your partner is one thing, but when it becomes constant and negative, something is wrong. When most people are bothered by your presence, it translates into unpleasant words and actions.
If your partner is constantly criticizing what you say, your opinion or the way you do things, it may just mean that he/she is not happy to be with you. It may be time to walk away, because you deserve someone who is proud to have you in their life.
4 He/she tries to control your appearance
This is a major sign that your partner may not be proud of you. Wanting to dictate what you should wear, how you should do your hair, what kind of makeup you should use, and even your weight is inappropriate from someone who claims to love you.
It should be noted that before this person even begins to try to control your appearance, they would have made some hurtful comments to make you feel like you should look different. If this is the case, you need to seriously reconsider your relationship and whether you should continue it.
Now, this doesn’t mean that they can’t give you fashion tips or advice.
5 He/she prefers dating at home
You may think that your partner just prefers to stay home rather than go on a date, think about it: how long has this been going on?
If you’ve noticed that your partner is going out with his or her friends but is giving excuses for not going out with you, it’s likely that he or she is embarrassed to be seen in public with you.
If this is the case, you may also have noticed that on the rare occasions you have gone out, your partner avoids places where he/she can meet his/her friends.
6 You constantly wonder if he/she is ashamed of you
If you’re always wondering if your partner is ashamed of you, chances are he or she is. Unless, of course, you’re an overthinker.
When we wonder about certain things or behaviors in our relationship, more often than not, we are right.
Never forget that you deserve to be with someone who adores you and wants to introduce you to the world.
