Relationships are tricky places to be in. We can grow comfortable in our romantic relationships. In the first six months to a year, it’s all excitement and an adrenaline rush at the mere fantasy of skin touching, but after two years you really do have to work to keep the romance. Life can get a little routine and formulaic. You do certain things on certain nights of the week, together or apart. The love is still there, but the accelerated heart rate, weak-at-knees sensation, and feeling that your heart might explode with passion have noticeably decreased.
Sometimes, it makes you feel like the happiest person in the world. And at other times, it spirals you back onto the ground and makes you wonder if you even want to be in one. Do you feel like you’re getting bored with your relationship? You’re not the only person with those thoughts on your mind, so you really don’t have to feel guilty about it, even if your lover is head over heels in love with you.
Sometimes, these things just happen. But should it come as a surprise to you if you get bored in love? No. Almost always, boredom sets into a relationship because you didn’t do anything to prevent it. You may be in love for a long time. For few, it may take months, and for many others, it may take a few years. But at some inevitable point in your love life, you may wonder if you’re really actually happy being in the relationship.
So why does that happen? You didn’t plan on falling out of love, but it just happened. You wake up one morning and you’re just not interested in staying in love anymore. You could push the thought aside and continue on in your relationship, or you could jump into an affair with someone sexy and fun. You could do any of those, and more. But before you actually go blaming love and its mysterious ways that led to the downfall of your present relationship, you need to ask yourself a few questions. Why are you really bored? What do you want to do about it? And most importantly, what are the reasons behind why you got bored of your relationship?
Once you understand why you’re getting bored with your relationship, you can prevent it from ever happening again. And unless you truly understand the reasons behind the boredom, you’ll never really be able to enjoy a happy relationship without a bit of drama and boredom now and then. You don’t need to feel guilty if you’re getting bored with your relationship. You just need to understand why you’re bored and do something about it!
