    Have you been in a situation where you felt that your partner didn't love you anymore?

    How did you deal with it?

    Did you get the relationship back?

    I am not in this situation, I am just interested.

    Hm.. Good question. I've never been in this situation, but I would be interested to see what people's responses are. I've always been the one falling out of love, never really the other way around.

    Yes.

    I watched them leave, endured the pain, allowed myself to heal, and continued on with my life.

    Did you get the relationship back?


    No.

    I have been in that situation and let's just say that they got "binned".

    20 years ago my wife decided she was in love with an old acquaintance who had showed up one day after we had been married 12 years. It was a confusing time for both of us and it took her over a year to sort herself out, she would have left our home except that the boyfriends mother and the marriage counselor both told her that she needed to sort things out first. She spent a year sleeping in the downstairs bedroom and it took another year after she moved back upstairs for her to get a handle on what was going on in her head.

    We are still together.

    Have you been in a situation where you felt that your partner didn't love you anymore? Yep. Really hurts knowing that the one you love doesn't love you.

    How did you deal with it? Watched her leave me for the one she liked. I was around long enough to watch the one she liked leave her for the one he loved.

    Did you get the relationship back? Nope. Didn't see the point.

    I have never been in the situation wher I thought he didn`t love me. He no longer loved me but I didn`t see it coming, and he finished it. When he wanted to try again I had moved on. It was the right thing to happen, I`m glad he didn`t want to come back sooner before i`d had the chance to move on.

    I hope that I'll never have to answer the questions this thread. :redface:

    FWIW: When I choose to love someone, that is not dependent on reciprocated feelings, so I'd still love them even if they no longer loved me. I know this much.

    I didn't feel my partner didn't love me, but I did feel he took me for granted. After telling him what my problems with our relationship were I gave him a length of time to try to put his side of it right. He didn't, I left him.
