These are five common, relatable reasons men lose interest in women they once loved.

These are five common, relatable reasons men lose interest in women they once loved.

Sometimes people in relationships, once burning with a passion for each other, suddenly lose interest in the whole affair.

Reasons for this could range from exasperating habits like cheating, competence and many others. 

For men, reasons for losing interest in a relationship with a woman they once liked could be one of the five common ones listed below.

Efforts don’t match.

If he does his best and you don’t. It won’t be long before he starts to get distant and aloof.

Effort in relationships does not have to be the same in value, it just has to be significant enough to count. You’ve got to give back. If not, the relationship will look pretty one-sided, and resentment will start to build.

You’re not supportive.

You should always let your man know that you’re riding for him, that you’ve got his back, especially if he is doing his best to do right by you.

If your words and actions rarely show support or interest in the things he holds dear, he might start to feel that you do not care about him.


Men are notorious for challenging dealing with a woman who cheats on them. No one does, but men have a notoriety for being more intolerant to it.

That’s ironic, though, as women tend to forgive cheating from men a lot.

The difference in sex drive

If the gap in the sex drive between him and his girlfriend is vast, it will affect the relationship adversely, and it won’t be long before the man gets fed up.

If the woman has a higher sex drive, or if he has a higher sex drive, something will get terribly wrong at some point. This is why it is better always to have that conversation about sexual compatibility early enough.


Nothing makes people fed up more than constant disrespect. Being belittled, being made to feel like nothing, having your importance questioned and being made to feel like your presence, opinions and being doesn’t count for much… anyone would seek to get out of a relationship under the circumstances as this – most certainly men would, too!
