how you look at it

You are together with someone for 5 years.
You love him, like you never have before. You can't imagine yourself being with someone else. He's your life. Forever and always.
But. You start to notice the flaws. The little ones.
He's not kissing you goodbye when going to the toilet. Even if he's gone for just a few minutes. He's not saying 'thank you' when you cooked him a delicious meal (again). Or when you're cleaning up after a BBQ for his friends. He's not paying attention when you talk about how your day was. He's there, but that's all.
He's just what you expect to be, nothing more.
So you crave. You want something else, something better. You want to be welcomed when you come back home after work, with a passionate kiss. You want him to show the world that he loves you. You want to know, in every kind of way, you are the one.
The one and only. Right?!
So then you meet someone new.
He seems perfect. He seems more you can ever think of. Dream of.
He fits right into your perfect image.
He walks you home. He takes you out for a walk. He's so interested in everything you're saying. He loves your meals. He turns the world around, just to be with you.
He's everything you want, even more.
So you break up with your boyfriend. To be with him.
To be with someone you deserve.
To be happier.
You'll never be happier.
In the end, everything is the same. It's just how you look at it.


  1. I've done this like, four times in a row. HELP?!

  2. I guess that it's all about the routine. And being stuck in it. When everything is exactly the same for a long period of time, we stop paying attention - not because we've fallen out of love, but because love has become a part of our everyday life. And that's someting so beautiful and dangerous. So, try to break the routine sometimes; go on a holiday, take him out, kiss each other like you used to when everything was new. And dont ever, ever forget how to laugh and have fun with each other. In short terms: make new adventures together, and I think your love will last longer.

  3. You gotta somehow keep the passion alive. Tell him what you feel when your relationship starts lacking something. Don't just leave. With relationships you have to constantly work on them. The guy must know that too.

  4. Yes, it is true. I think that it is possible to keep the passion alive by alowing each other to be for themselfs sometimes. I think a common mistake is to be together to much.

  5. passion, passion, passion. romance. when there is romance nothing else matters. keep it alive. don't get used to life. live it.

    I have a new post on my blog: visit me! :)

  6. Ever watched the movie "Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor"? It's about the same issue. Lack of passion, taking each other for granted, being stuck in a routine.
