It’s all about a condescending smile. When a person smirks, they show their superiority unconsciously. In a healthy relationship, partners are equal. That’s why if you notice that your partner looks down on you, it’s time to think about your relationship.
5. Closed poses
Crossing the legs indicates that a person doesn’t feel any connection with their partner. If one’s arms or legs are crossed or they keep their hands in their pockets, it may mean that they aren’t interested in their partner anymore.
6. Furrowed brows
Professor John Gottman’s studies show that contempt is one of the main reasons why couples get divorced. Furrowed eyebrows are a bright example of criticism and accusation. Gottman says, “No one likes to be criticized. When a person notices their partner’s disapproving look, they try to defend and protect themselves.” And these kinds of situations cause even more problems.
Your partner is probably indifferent to you if he or she doesn’t look into your eyes, picks up the phone before you stop speaking, interrupts you, doesn’t want to listen to you, comes home late, etc. Ignoring a partner is one of the ways to manipulate and suppress them. Your partner’s unwillingness to pay attention to your opinions and feelings means that you’ve chosen the wrong person.
