...How people let such things happen to themselves? Falling into such a sad predicament as needing you love life to be perked up? We need better communication in all aspects of life, in all relationships, i think. Does anyone else think that's probably the major component of it too?
Communication is definitely key; as much as we think we may know our partners after a long time of being together, if feelings, desires, or attitudes change and it's not made clear between parties, it's not the best way to foster growth, methinks.
But then, I think that even with openness and effective communication, there can still be rough times when things just seem to be in a rut or "stale." I haven't experienced this personally, but it's understandable. Let's not forget, monogamy isn't exactly hard-wired into our species; it took centuries of manmade rules of social conduct for us to collectively agree that monogamy is what is most socially acceptable. For that reason, it's common for people's interest to wander, and I think if they feel bored in their relationships, it may be the cause of our natural instincts.
Everyone doesn't agree with this, and of course some people are more in tune with their instincts than others, but these are just some anthropological/psycho logical observations.
All that aside, I agree that communication is huge when it comes to staying on the same page ad keeping relationships "fresh." While I personally haven't experienced a need to revive my love life, I can see where failure to maintain open lines of communication can lead us wrong.
