Relationships are like a roller coaster ride where both of you face the ups and downs of life together with one condition that you both must hold hands of one another. Being in relationships is a beautiful feeling of loving and caring someone whom you chose as a partner to stay with. This can be led to distress if the relationship is one-sided and not working. One-sided relationships, where one partner is giving all the care and concern to another partner and do efforts to make the relationship work, but another partner is not caring about the feeling of the partner. Being in a one-sided relationship is a wounding relation, one can never understand the feeling of being in a one-sided relationship until they experience it. One partner avails themselves all the time, but the other one takes it for granted. It’s like you are committed one in your relationship and your partner does not care about anything. A movie like 500 Days Of Summer is a classic example of One-Sided relationships.

Signs you are in a one-sided relationship
Partner refuses to meet and talk every time
When you are in a relationship, you must be in contact, talking, sharing the good and bad, spend time together, know each other more and should be compatible with one another. If your partner refuses to meet and talk every time and you are always availing yourself for the meeting then you should think, why always you are available for your partner, why they aren’t?
Keep saying they are busy
Sometimes a person can be genuinely busy but when they all the time say they are busy, it's quite possible they are lying. Your partner can be busy truly but if it's regular and can't even give you time when you need it, only you are available all the time for them than its quite possible you are in a one-sided relationship.
Don't give you a priority anymore
Your partner may not consider you the priority as priorities are individual's choice and mostly one's priority is family, career than anything else. But if your partner always chose other things over you all the time, they cancel plans with you, to meet someone else or do some work. Sometimes it's okay but always it's not okay.
Excitement to meet is no more left in your partner
If you are the only one who is always excited to meet, and your partner reacts casually than the spark of the relationship is going away in your partner. Your partner behaviour changing towards the relationship. You should notice your partner’s behaviour and ask them what they have to say about the spark.
Do not initiate in any topic
Your partner does not actively indulge in conversation with you. You are the one who always keeps on starting the conversation, talking all the time and your partner just listens but does not react. There are couples where one is talkative, other one introvert, but being an introvert and not initiating in talks are different things.
Started lying and ignoring you
Trust is the foremost root of every relationship. If your partner lies to you and ignore you all the time and you are the one, who is only there to tell everything to your partner then it will be a problem soon.
You feel alone besides being in a relationship
It happens when the gesture you want from your partner is not getting! When you need your partner the most and they are not there for you, might be they are busy in other works, but this should not be always. ‘Action speaks than words’ Spending time with loved ones can be helpful more than medicines. But your partner is sitting side by you or with you still you don’t feel like, you are with your partner than something has changed surely.
Your partner does not accept you in public
One can be the best partner in private but when it comes to the public if your partner's friends don't know that you are in a relationship than this thing is to worry. If you are the one who hangs out with your friend's group with your partner, but you never met your partner's friend as their gf/bf then you have to ask your partner, why they are not telling at least their friends about you. Telling the family is a long period decision but to friends, one can tell.
Your partner blames you all the time
In every argument, your partner somehow rounds the table and blame you whether it's your fault or not. They never accept their faults and make you feel guilty all the time.
Your partner does not appreciate your small efforts and success
Appreciation motivates a person a lot to achieve in life and, when your partner does not appreciate your efforts, it hurts a lot, and this shows your partner has no interest left in what you do in your life.
