Partner's indifferent response to making plans may indicate a lack of desire for shared decision-making, signaling a need to reconnect.

Constant remarks about your efforts not being sufficient may suggest your partner's dissatisfaction and a potential desire to end the relationship.
Address the underlying issues behind their comments to foster communication, understanding, and support for both partners in the relationship.
Feeling distant or unlike yourself may be a sign of a deteriorating relationship. Your partner may be using it to hint at emotional disconnection.
It doesn't necessarily mean they want to break up, but it's a signal that something needs to change. It can create resentment and frustration.
