Knowing when a romance has fizzled out

Breaking up when nothing’s wrong
By Phineas Mollod and Jason Tesauro





Every romance hits a few dry spells, but if you can’t remember the last time you laughed together or got frisky in a new way, it might be time to reconsider your relationship. Did your weekend getaway fail to inject some energy? Did that last birthday gift fizzle upon reception? Sometimes there’s nothing tangibly “wrong,” but a kite with no wind to keep it aloft isn’t going anywhere but the ground, if you get my drift. Without a concrete, acceptable reason to break up with someone (infidelity, drama, PETA-supporting vegan vs. rodeo-loving carnivore), many couples simply continue to tread water in their dead-end relationships. Other times, one partner’s passive aggressive behavior — such as becoming increasingly distant, or engaging in acts of sabotage — pushes the other into initiating the split. When you sense that your love’s flatlining on the table, it’s time to either bust out the defibrillator or agree to call it a day.

1.Depression: Ennui has set in, followed by many romance-free months, joyless outings, and a decline in one or both partners’ personal hygiene and fashion choices.

2. Histrionics exhaustion: Your girl was super-cute and charming at first, but now her yo-yo dieting, social circle freak-outs and nightly bubble bath habit makes envisioning a conjoined future with her now utterly impossible.

3. Instability jitters: Your guy’s up-and-down freelancing career was to be expected right out of college, but after a few years, you’re longing for a steady paycheck, a regular work schedule and the condo life together.

4. Routine boredom: Is this love a pretty package tied up with a big, beige bow? Don’t mistake contentment with settling for less than you deserve.

5. Gapping (in age, income, lifestyle): Being a sugar daddy or sugar mama can be fun for awhile, but any twenty-something’s penchant for all-night clubbing followed by French fry binges can eventually clash with your morning meetings (and cholesterol count).

6. Ambition inequality: She wants a multi-carat ring and career acclaim; he’s cool with living with a roommate… or maybe moving to Santa Monica, but only if he could sell his 1978 set of Topps baseball cards on Craigslist for the right price.

7. Roving eye syndrome: After a flurry of flirty text messages and secret lunches, one of you has enjoyed a first kiss with a new paramour and an affair seems inevitable. Moral issues aside, sometimes it takes getting hot for someone else to realize how chilly your current relationship’s become.
