 Have you recently felt distant from your partner? This can be both sad and distressing. You might even question whether the relationship has a potential future. There are lots of reasons why you might feel distant and these aren’t all physical. So, let’s look at some of the common causes of issues here and what you can potentially do to improve the situation. 

No Time 

One of the main reasons that you could be feeling distant from your partner is that you’re not giving each other enough of your time. For instance, it’s possible that you are too focused on work or you might be finding that personal commitments are taking up all your free time. If you’re a parent, it can feel as though all your time should be focused on your kids. This is understandable, but you still need to give your partner time as well. For instance, you should think about arranging date nights. Depending on your schedule, you should ensure that you have a date night at least once a month or advisably, once every week. You can rely on people you know or even babysitters to look after your kids.

Don’t forget that if you get the kids in bed, you can also enjoy a date night in the comfort of your home. Prepare dinner and snacks, watch movies, or play games. As long as you are spending time together, you’ll see benefits here. 

Lack Of Physical Connection 

Next, you should think about ensuring that there is an active physical connection between you and your partner. Do be aware that this isn’t just about sex. That’s only one part of it. Holding hands, kissing and hugs can all strengthen the physical connection that you have with your partner. 

Of course, sex can be another aspect worth exploring here. For instance, you might want to try dressing up for your partner. With options like a lingerie sale at Wild Crush you can guarantee that you can get sexy outfits that are sure to drive your partner wild for a fraction of what you might expect to pay. 

It could also be worth exploring different activities in the bedroom such as strip card games. This is a great way to keep things exciting for you and your partner. 

No Communication 

You could also be finding it difficult to feel close to your partner because there is a lack of communication between you and your partner. If that’s the case, then you need to focus on ways that you can encourage one another to share what you are feeling and thinking. For instance, you might want to sit down together each evening and discuss your day. You might think that this is going to be a natural occurrence in a relationship, but that’s not always the case. Indeed, it’s quite common for couples to sit silently in the evening without even realising it. 

Or, they just get distracted by the tech that is at their fingertips. This is why it can be worth setting a ‘no tech’ rule after a certain point in the evening. This means that you do have one another’s attention without the typical distractions from social media or even just news websites. Doom scrolling can take a lot of your attention without you even realizing it. 


Finally, it’s possible that you are feeling distant from your partner because there are issues with trust in your relationship. If this is the case, then it can feel as though things are significantly strained. 

Trust can be due to actions of your partner or issues in your past that are still impacting your current relationship. In a situation like this, you should think about the ways that you can rebuild levels of trust. There are lots of possibilities worth thinking about here. For instance, you might want to go to couples counseling. With counseling, you can make sure that the issues impacting trust can be addressed head on. 

You could also provide yourself with evidence that you can trust your partner. You might want to think about completing the phone test. This is where you switch phones with your partner for 24 hours to show that neither one of you is keeping any secrets. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the main reasons that you might be feeling distant from your partner and what you can do about this. If you take the right steps here, then you can ensure that your relationship is stronger than before and makes you feel more confident about your future with your partner.
