“I don’t love you anymore.” It’s one of the worst sentences a guy can hear, especially when it comes out of the blue in the midst of what you thought was a good relationship. You don’t have screaming, horrible fights. There’s no abuse of any kind. You thought things were moving along nicely and suddenly she hits you with the revelation that she’s fallen out of love. Why would this happen? Is there something you could have done to prevent it?
She falls out of love because she’s bored
One major reason why she falls out of love is boredom. When you’re in a long-term, committed relationship, it’s easy to start taking things for granted and slipping into a routine that is comfortable, but not that exciting. Especially if you live together, your daily interactions have probably taken on quite a bit of predictability. You wake up together, go off to work, maybe talk or text a couple times throughout the day and then meet back at home for supper and spend the rest of the night watching TV together. This repetition can be reassuring. It’s nice to know that you’ll always be able to come home to each other. On the other hand, it can get tedious after a while and make your girl wish for the exhilarating early days of your relationship.
To combat boredom in your relationship, throw in a little spontaneity every once in a while. When she comes home expecting to make supper and sit in front of the TV, tell her you’ve made reservations and you’re going out. Surprise her with a trip out of town on the weekend. Most importantly, initiate sex at unexpected times to keep her on her toes.
She falls out of love because you neglected her
You may think that you’re doing enough to make your girlfriend feel appreciated and loved, but unfortunately she may be feeling differently. Somehow as girls are growing up, they pick up the incredibly annoying habit of pouting instead of talking when something is bothering them. You should just know that she’s not getting what she wants without her having to tell you. Yes, it’s infantile and unproductive, but she puts up with plenty of your unappealing idiosyncrasies too. Do what you think is enough to keep her happy — and then do some more.
She falls out of love because she met someone else
Sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what makes a girl fall out of love with her boyfriend, but in the case of The Other Man the reason is clear. Most of the time, a woman who is happy in her relationship won’t go out looking for another guy, but love happens in the most unexpected of places. Maybe it’s an affair with a co-worker or a reunion with an old flame. It is never an easy thing to deal with when your partner falls for someone else and the chance of a solution that doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings is virtually nonexistent.
