Why are there relationships that just ends? It just goes down the drain? Why do they say that love just fades? Is it real love then if it does?

As you go through life, you change...everyone does. You grow and mature, you experience new things and all of that changes you. Sometimes people grow apart because they have changed. Sometimes they grow apart because one or both of them didn't take the time to nurture the love. A relationship is like a living thing...it has to be nurtured and fed or it will die.

thank you for the reply... And may I ask how would it be nourished if the two were apart? Like in a long distance relationship?

LOVE never fades. we USE the word LOVE just like that in our normal conversation but it is much bigger than what we think of. when two partners are not ready to commute with each other or else not ready to understand each other, they break-up. but that does not mean love just fades. NO dear Love should not be associated with material things. anything which live n die on day or made or finished one day is a material thing. love is an eternal bliss, a spriual journey or something which cannot be bounded in a defination.

because love needs to be nurtured. if the partners failed to take care of their love, it will fade. no matter how great the structure is, if unprotected from weathering, it will crumble.

Real love does not fades. It changes, it gets deeper because then it is not just all about the s word. Real love is forever.

When they look digusting and you still love them. Like when there is a bogie handing from their face. They take it off and instead of you never want to see them again , you still love them. When they fart and it fades and you still want them arouond you it is love. I could go on and on. There is a huge difference.

omg thats a really good point. I watched my best friend and her bf go out for almost 2 years and they were iN lOVE. but it slowly started to fade as they reached their 1 year & 9 months. I mean why doooesnt most true love last? Most people spend their whole life searching for their true love, but ends up breaking up. Why is that? If something was meant to be, why doesnt it stay that way forever?

I certainly think that love can fade. Perhaps not for everyone, or all the time, but it does happen. People change, which is most likely why sometimes love fades as well.
