In addition, these life events can remind us of time passing.Instead, they go along happily in their relationships for a time, then slowly, without awareness, they start to pull back.Ultimately, they diminish their feelings of real love and replace it with anything from routine to petty arguments to complete deadness between themselves and their partner.Or, if we do find ourselves in a healthy and rewarding relationship, we may reach a level of intimacy that exceeds our internal limits, and at that point, we recoil.Most of us enter a good relationship in a good place.
