Did You Fall In Love With A Different Person? (G-uno)
Everyone whose ever been head over heels in love knows that this feeling can fade. Love is tricky business, dating is hard, and long term relationships are almost impossible. So my question is, do you think love fades because you fell in love with a different person? Think about it for a moment, go back to the beginning of each love affair you were ever involved in, and try to pinpoint the moment where things started to go wrong.
Are you in a relationship now that you know is on it’s way to being over? Do you think most of us know when the beginning of the end is just around the corner? I think that sometimes you do, and sometimes you don’t. I’m at the age (almost like when you were in your twenties) where some relationships are lasting, and ones that seem to have been unshakable are falling apart. How can somebody you’ve built a life with wake up one day, and realize that they no longer want to be in the relationship?
If it takes two to tango, then does it take two to fail? My feeling is that maybe in most cases there is no blame, maybe we simply grow to be different people. For example if you start out partying together, then one person stops (or even both people) they are essentially no longer the same people personality wise. Maybe having children individually changes each person in ways that makes them no longer compatible. Maybe all the unexpected moments that life hands you changes you into someone that your partner can no longer connect with in the same way.
Personally the fact that none of us are immune to having this happen to us completely saddens me to my very core. As always I’d love to hear what you think about the whole concept… 😉
There is two of us actually, G-uno and g2. We have been friends for a while, met through our own similarities in duality, openness and love of listening. Our differences as well as our similarities always border on the extreme.
