Instead, if you pick up on these subtle s your relationship is ending, experts say it may be better to leave sooner, rather than later. To get out of a rut, have more sex, talk more often, give each other space, go on vacation, attend couples therapy — the list of ways to "reignite a spark" is pretty much endless, and it often works for couples who are just going through a phase. That said, "if those have failed after an honest investment of time and effort," Joanne Ketch, LPC, LMFTa psychotherapist in private practice, tells Bustle, "it might be time to leave.
While not every couple is super touchy feely, take note if your partner pulls away when you go in for a hug, or if you tend to turn over in bed so they can't cuddle you.

While it's good to have space in a relationship so that you can maintain your individual lives, the desire to hang out shouldn't fade.

In the same vein, don't overlook constant, angry bickering. While it might be a of a different underlying problem in your relationship — and one that could be fixed, if you discovered what it is — it might also be a you're ready to move on.
