1. Stop Caring
When you are thinking about how to make him realize he’s losing you, stop caring. A person realizes their partner’s worth when they do not care because of the things they did and in turn, makes him realize how important and caring you are. This not only proves your worth but also helps him realize how lucky he is to have you in their life.
It’s not like you should distance him or eliminate him from your life but add some distance for a short time. Don’t ask much about his plans or his work. This may help make him realize your worth.
2. Stop Doing the ‘Sweet Things’ for him
One of the most common reasons men take us for granted is because they get too comfortable with the love and sweet things you do for him. If you do a lot for him and receive absolutely nothing from him, even a bit of care then you must stop doing those as well. If he expects you to do everything for him and give off nothing in return, surprise him with nothing but ignorance. As soon as he discovers, the sweet things you did for him are no longer done, make him realize he’s losing you, he will realize how ignorant and stupid he was to make you feel bad.

3. Do not Reply to his Messages Instantly- Make him Wait
The most common thing women do in a relationship is being clingy. Being clingy is sometimes bad, not just for him but you as well as can even make you lose concentration on other important stuff. So, if you are taken granted, it’s good to leave him be. Do not reply instantly to his messages. Make him wait and worry. This may work out! But if it doesn’t, maybe it’s the time you should leave that man because a man realizes when he’s ignored and it hits hard if he actually likes you or needs you.
4. Be a Little Selfish
Being selfish is sometimes good for your mental as well as physical health. Sharing and caring is great until you won’t receive that back. If you show yourself as a ‘good’ or someone who has a personality of a ‘selfless’ person, please leave doing that for a while. Your selfless image can harm your own prosperity and safety.
The selfless and caring portrayal of yours has been stuck to his head which makes him ignore you and leave you helpless. So, it’s an important and amazing step to take (even if it’s for a short time). Be selfish!
