When the magic of being in a new relationship starts to fade away, what happens? How long does it take to lose that nervous jitter in your stomach every time your new beau texts, calls, or shows up on your doorstep? When does comfort become complacency, and how can you tell when you're not paying enough attention to your relationship? Believe it or not, there are warning signs. Whether or not you choose to pay attention to these warning signs is completely up to you.
The truth is, the demise of your relationship usually can't be pinpointed back to a single point in time. There's no blanket band-aid for relationships that have lost their spark, and often times there's not a quick fix. Relationships take time and effort for a reason, because in order to cultivate a functional relationship, you have to put in time and effort. When you stop giving your relationship its due time, things usually start to crumble. The best way to stop this from happening? By looking for the warning signs. If any of these symptoms sound familiar to you, it may be time to reevaluate the relationship you're in, and begin reinvesting time in your partner.
