10 Signs Your Man is No Longer in Love With You

These signs may already be staring you in the face, but you just do not want to acknowledge them.

For the author of Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve Harvey, a man’s love can be expressed in three forms: 1.) declaring his rights for you in public; 2.) protecting you, and 3.) taking care of you. While everyone can agree that women certainly need the protection and security of their men, it all boils down to love. But what good does it do if a man is no longer in love with his woman?

A woman’s intuition is so strong that she can somehow feel if something is wrong. Ironically, in most cases, she finds it hard to determine if whether or not her man is no longer in love with her.

Now, there's a new social media craze so-called the "waist challenge," which involves couples and lets women show off their tiny figure. Uploaded on Facebook, the new challenge has garnered over 13,000 shares as of this writing.

The new "waist challenge" needs to be done by two people.

A man should put his arm around a woman's waist and drink from a glass, cup or mug from that side of the arm. That means, if she has a tiny waistline, it would be easy for the guy to drink from the glass. On the other hand, if the man can't successfully drink from the glass, he tries hard by changing the type of glass until it makes it possible for him to take a sip of the beverage....
