would you every change your relationship to try and rekindle the love you once had? If things began to go downhill with someone you though to be your life partner what things would you do to help fix things?
I agree with Airen Wolf, mostly, but there are some other things I would do, too. It also depends on the person's perspective and mine, how we work together to straighten things out, and especially how much we love each other, how much we want to stay together.
Try to make it work, I guess. There is only so much you can do, and people do change. I am currently trying to work out the probs in my relationship, but am finding out that there isn't really any "problems" we've more or less just grown apart, have different priorities, and want very different lives.
If things got bad enough I think I'd move out and try counseling as a last resort to rekindle things and learn to re-appreciate and love each other. I hope we'd catch it long before it got to that point though.
I am the type of person that, given the fact that I truly love this person and I know they love me but we are having serious issues...I would continue to take all means to make things work, if then, it doesn't seem like the love can be completely rekindled, I suppose that's when plan B should take place, such as breaking it off.
I have been in some unfix-able relationships where we even tried to work things out and most of the time we just weren't right for each other. Take my last relationship. We were engaged for almost a year, our wedding was coming up in a few months and he left me. We tried again, but this time decided to move in together to see if things would change because it was a long distance relationship. Nothing changed. It was just like I wasn't even there. Times like that just break you down a little bit and there isn't much you can do if you can't even rekindle the relationship while living under the same roof.
My relationship isn't working right now. I wish I knew what to do, but there is 0 communication. I mean literally, 0. I haven't talked to him in 8 days. I guess I just leave it be. I have no idea what to do. I have tried every medium of communication possible and he doesn't respond. I don't get it.
Everything depends on so many factors. I stayed in a crappy marriage for the sake of my son. I tried everything to make it work. Without that child, I may not have tried so hard.
Another discussion on this forum asked "Do you believe in Hell?"
I don't believe in it because I've lived it.
depends a lot on the relationship and the dynamic you have with your partner. I have to reiterate that communication is the most important thing and after you find out what the problem is, you need to discuss and find a reasonable solution that you can both live with.
If I felt like the relationship had the potential to become what it once was, I'd definitely be willing to change things and work at it! I'd talk to my partner and discuss what we felt the problem areas are and work from there.
