Meeting new people is always exciting but meeting a new potiential boyfriend or girlfriend is even more exciting. That first month you’re all over one another both of you insatiable and lets face it that’s pretty much the first year or so, well the first six months anyway. By the time the one year mark does roll around infatuation is still there as is chemistry and lust but you’ve become a lot more comfortable with this person and perhaps you can picture them in your future; whatever the case may be suddenly you’re comfortable with one another. By the time the year and a half mark rolls around you’re able to easily chat with one another and though the chemistry and lust may still be there it may not be as passionate as it first was. Two years down the road and you’re practically bored to tears with your guy or gal, not all people but some are anyway. The chemistry and lust are gone replaced with affection and comfort, what happened? Too often couples will cruise their way into the comfort zone and by that point will give up on making their relationship interesting, why work at something that’s already perfect?
Even if you have been with your man or woman for 2 years or even a year you still need to work at your relationship, think of your relationship as a puppy you have to train, nuture, and nourish. Keep things fresh and interesting between the two of you, find hobbies outside of one another, plan some time away from one another on occasion that way when you two reunite sometime later you’ll have interesting stories to share with each other; basically don’t lose yourself in the relationship. Too often men and women fall blindly into relationships and overtime they begin to change to suit their partners interests and hobbies and in the process lose their own and before long you’ll be looking back and wonder whatever happened to you; you use to be so interesting and now you’re nothing if not bored.
