New relationships are all about that excitement, but most every couple settles into a routine after a little while. How can you tell the difference between settling down and totally growing bored with your partner? In general, if you do certain things at night, then it's a sign you're probably bored in your relationship. For the most part, it's a good sign when you and your significant other both want to spend the majority of your free time together.
Of course, every relationship is different, and all couples have to balance their need for independence. Hey, most everyone is super busy with a packed and demanding schedule, so it can be tricky to make time for your partner every day. Plus, nobody is telling you to spend every waking moment with your partner, because that's probably the surest way to make everybody irritable. Still, it's healthy when couples want to spend their precious spare time catching up, communicating, and generally hanging out with each other.
So if you're spending every evening gazing lovingly into your phone for hours on end, instead of making a connection with your partner, then it may be time to reconsider the way you're running the relationship. For the most part, these are the sorts of habits that show couples have grown a bit bored of one another's company in the relationship.
