It’s sad, but it happens to the best of us. Sometimes, the love just dies and that’s when you know that it’s over. No one goes into a relationship with the thought that they will fall out of love. But, in some relationships, love just doesn’t last a lifetime.
Take a look at the following 10 sadly common reasons people fall out of love……
1. Taking each other for granted- According to a recent study, the three-year mark is now the point where couples begin to experience more relationship problems and start taking each other for granted.
2. Expectations were not met– Expectations have a powerful impact on those we trust and respect, but, interestingly, an even greater impact on perfect strangers. When we know someone expects something from us, we will try to satisfy him or her in order to gain respect and likability.
3. You both changed- People change because life changes them. We all pick out little parts of other people that we wish fit better with how we work and what we want from another person. And as quickly as we promise unconditional love, we feel the urge to try and change people.
4. There’s no more communication- Communication is hard work. That’s why it’s the key to any healthy relationship. If you want to communicate better in a relationship, then you have to not only know how to state your ideas but to be able to really listen to your partner.
5. The relationship wasn’t built on a solid foundation- Most good relationships start with a good foundation. If the foundation is not built properly, the future of that relationship will crack and it will be unbalanced. In Order to have a successful relationship it takes steps to reach to the roof of your home. A Solid Foundation home wasn’t built in a day. It takes time to grow.
6. Insecurities were high- Insecurity spoils relationships. Insecurity drives people to become too ‘clingy’ or needy and this creates problems. Feeling insecure in a relationship is natural up to a point, at least until the relationship “settles”.
7. Boredom just took over- The relationship has either lost its spark or become too much work for one or both people to handle. Boredom can become problematic in a relationship when the steady state turns from comfort to stagnation.
8. Conflicts Don’t Get Resolved- If one or both of you are closed and controlling, trying to win or at least not lose, or if you are too ready to give yourself up, conflict doesn’t get resolved and resentment builds up. Love cannot flourish when resentment takes over.
9. A major life event changed things- Change is part of everyone’s life. It can mean anything from moving to a new place, having a major life event upset your life (like an illness or death), or dealing with a relationship. Learning to adjust to changes will help you feel more in charge and confident in your life.
10. It wasn’t love in the first place- Lust can disguise itself as love. Once the honeymoon is over, however, it can also leave a relationship feeling empty and lacking.
