What happened to those days?
At the beginning of a relationship, passionate love is high, everything is new and stimulating. You’re learning interesting and exciting information about your partner every day, which fuels the passion. At this stage of the relationship, you idealized your partner and saw them through “rose-colored glasses.” But, as time went by, you took the rose-colored glasses off and began to notice their imperfections and trust me, everyone has flaws.
I can tell you that you’re not alone in asking, “What happened to the days when we couldn’t wait to rip our clothes off?” Once novelty and mystery wear off and the everyday activities settle in, the excitement and sexual desire are bound to fade. While time and getting to know your partner is comforting and increases companionate love (the love of support, intimacy, and friendship), this can also lead you to think that you’re headed toward a sexless, boring, or incredibly dull love life.
So, do you think one should worry about a relationship once settled into a groove?
