There is definitely a time when you found one day you have fallen in love with someone special and there is nothing like it. At that juncture, having a long term relationship that lasts forever is perhaps what you had in mind and wanted nothing otherwise. It is also possible you did not have anything in mind that could indicate your relationship would hit the rocks or some hard time, threatening to tear it apart. It came to a point when everything seemed very exciting and new, but it might have started being downgraded and less exciting, ordinary, blunt and commonplace.
Yet the ideas of that forgotten spark you hard a long time ago is still in your mind since there was nothing like it. Obviously, you know what you want but it shows you are still to mature in case this is how you feel. You realize you once believed long term relationship that you thought was for the long term has downgraded to a point where even talking together is impossible as much as you still hit the evening for a number of dates but the fact that you do the same thing all the time is boring and changes nothing. You realize you have entered a boring and dull routine mostly taking you in circles and nowhere in particular.
The idea in all this for those who want to save their relationship to revitalize the relationship you once thought is for the long haul. You had the belief that you were going somewhere and you were ready for everything in your long term relationship, and if you have to return to winning ways in your relationship, then you must look back and rekindle that important moment in your life; it is not really hard. This is not hard and you must above all and everything make sure your relationship takes you far.
