I've been glancing through some snarf here,about: my girl did this,Max's man does'nt love her anymore. Ya know,the same old shit. On a different note,but the same;What makes any relationship "die" out? I know,most of the time it takes two to turd it up. But sometimes its only one. One thought.

Remember when it was new?
Your relationship,fool. It was great. The two of you could'nt geht enough of each other. Constantly at each others side. Continually writing new chapters in the book of 'All things unholy'. You can barely breathe as you slowly move across an unfamiliar candle lit bedroom. [poof!] Wake up dipshit,the curtains are on fire. Anyhoo...Short of the fire, where in your relationship,was the 'new' betrayed to 'boring assed routine,your gehtting fuct' thing?

When does this happen? Is there a time line to speak of?
How does this happen? Could you see this coming?
Why,statisticly,are 9 out of 10 relationships doomed to failure?

Just wondering.

I don't think you can put a number on it, or use an equation. The outcome of romantic relationships are relative. (Especially in parts of the deep south)
Some may go on “till death do they part”.
Some may fizzle quick due to changing interests and circumstances.

Example: A girl and guy, "Made for each other", develop what people call the ideal relationship; Pre-college. They graduate, get married, get jobs, now they have different lives outside the house.
They start to see things differently. Meet new people. Then the woman, sleeps with the guy's brother, and sticks a dagger :sword: of deceit and venom into the guy's heart. Divorces him, and takes half of everything he has, even though she has a $120K/Yr job as PR executive for Johnson & Johnson.
The man turns bitter, spends the next couple of decades carousing with women in an attempt to quell his need for love. Then when he's 50 or so, marries a 20 year old that bangs other men behind his back. He turns a blind eye.
Finally he dies of a heart attack and a fierce, estate battle ensues.
He's dead and everyone has his money.

But that's just one scenario. There's a million others.

But that's just one scenario. There's a millon others.

That...was..how do I put it? Entertaining?
Dad,must you always bring up your high School class of '52 reunion?
We've heard it. Just move away from it.

Anyhoo...WHEN does it "die"?
Where is the mean of the 'new' and 'gehtNfuct'?

At what point does~ 'New' It takes ten minutes for you to catch your breath,(after you hit it,fool.2mins or 3hrs,whatever.)and a further twenty minutes for your heart beat returning to normal...painfully move to:'gehtNfuct'~ Lame,routine mental masturbation?

Seriously though

Something new is great, but there's always that bit of apprehension, and "what if I say or do something wrong". When you and your partner have been together for a while and the new feeling has changed to comfort and security, while still maintaining unpredictability, what can be better?

As far as when does the new feeling end? That depends. What one month? one year? a Decade?

I think the bare bones of this topic is..Honesty.
Complete and total honesty. Thats where it fails. If you cant tell your significant other the truth of your likes and dislikes.How can it not fail?
When you dont try,or you're falling on deaf ears,there can be no understanding or even compromise. Therefore,the new is lost to routine.
And,eventual failure.

yeah the beginning is always more fun. when its new like that you are still trying to impress the person for some reason or another. that keeps it fresh and romantic. but when it gets to the point you no longer care about what the other person thinks then thats when things get dull.

You're right kid. But,what can we (collectivly as adults) do to hold on to that "trying to impress" feeling? Thats the feeling that bonds. (Max. ;) :thumbsup: ) Well,unless,deep inside you're too childish or selfish to be honest. Childish meaning:I'm too young,why worry? Or selfish enough not to be honest with your other half.

The fact that you want to hang on to the "Trying to impress" feeling is the first step. It means that you care what the other thinks of you. But, not to be confused with trying to be something you're not for the rest of your life.

If you want to hang on to the new feeling, one can always find new things to share and do together. Or do unexpected things for each other.
Drive a couple hours away and hike in the mountains.
Look for local events.
Surprise each other once in a while.
Take the kids to the park and drop mom off at an all day spa treatment.
Go back to the place where you met, sit and talk. (LOL She was 16 I was 19. For me that would be behind the bowling alley with a suitcase of Bud) But you know what I mean.
