Falling out of love and what to do

We have all stopped loving someone. But how do we deal with it?

Sometimes, it’s a gradual thing. You stop spending so much time together, you stop sleeping together, you stop talking every day, you form new friendship groups, you live in different parts of the country, and then gradually you realise that whatever it was is no longer there, or if it is, far weaker than before.

Other times, it can be very sudden. You can be mid conversation, mid date or even just waking up and realise that you don’t feel anything. Sometimes there is a reason for this, but a lot of the time it’s somewhat hard to identify. The fact is, you simply don’t want to be together anymore.

It’s sad, but all things end, in some way or another. I get a lot of letters written by people who have simply lost the love they had for someone else. It just happens. Whether it’s due to distance, hormones, growing up or just growing apart, it happens.
