Cupid’s Advice:

Even celebrity couples that appear to be as strong and loving as Fergie and Josh have the potential to fizzle out. While you should almost always try and save your relationship, sometimes it’s best to call it quits. How do you know when it’s over? Cupid has some ideas:

1. You’ve talked it out: Whether you sit down together or seek help from a therapist, getting to the root of the problems are totally essential. If you two still aren’t seeing eye-to-eye, maybe it just can’t be saved.

2. You’ve gone back to basics: Sometimes it’s good to hit the reset button. Remember the early days of your relationship when you were still getting to know each other? If you channel those innocent times but aren’t seeing changes in the way you treat each other, it may be time to end things.

3. You just aren’t feeling it: Always, always, always trust your gut. If your partner doesn’t make you feel as happy, strong, or content as they used to, perhaps the relationship has run dry. You know yourself better than anyone else, after all.
