Does It Hurt To Fall Out Of Love?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You hear about it all the time. People break up and the other person says they've fallen out of love. You feel like you might be falling out of love with your boyfriend but you aren't sure how it's supposed to feel. You've always thought that there'd be no pain involved in falling out of love with someone but this really hurts. Does it hurt to fall out of love? Or, could this be something else instead?

Falling out of love isn't something the average person has a lot of experience with. Couples grow apart. The passion dies down and people realize that it may not have been love in the first place. Falling out of love is something that really does deserve a category of its own in the heartbreak hall of fame. Everyone in the equation is hurt.

You may have found the guy you think is perfect. You may have loved him deeply at one time. You didn't have fights. He's not a bad person. You've just found that the level of emotion you have for him is not as strong as it has been in the past. You no longer feel as though you're "in love" with him at all. But, the kicker is you know you still love him deeply – just not as romantically as you once loved him. Does that about sum it up?

It's actually more common than people realize. Some people call it the seven year itch (though evidence supports the fact that it should be called the eight year itch instead). But for others it doesn't take that long and others may take a little longer. Almost every relationship though reaches a point where you've grown apart and feel as though the relationship is doomed. But there's still time to save your relationship at this point.

If your boyfriend really is the great guy you believe he is then your relationship is worth fighting for even as your desire to make it work flounders. There are things you can do that will help you reignite your passion and get your relationship back on even footing. Here are just a few changes you can make that might get your relationship back on the right foot.

1) Head out of town for a weekend alone together. 2) Get a makeover and a new outfit and see if that doesn't light a few fires for both of you. 3) Send him a saucy note promising fun and adventure later on to work in his lunch. 4) Spend a few days making a long list of all the reasons you fell in love with him in the first place. The odds are good that while you're busy looking for all these reasons that you'll fall head over heels for him all over again.

Of course this isn't the definitive end all, be all of lists. There are plenty more ways you can work to get your romance back on track. Learning these great tips now can even help you get your ex back if you might have waited a little too late to get started.
