Cupid's Pulse Article: Ask the Guy’s Guy: Should I Stick Around to Feel the Spark Again?Cupid's Pulse Article: Ask the Guy’s Guy: Should I Stick Around to Feel the Spark Again?
Question from Riley A, “I feel distant in my relationship. I feel like we’re growing apart, but I want to grow together. I don’t know what to do. Should I end it, and maybe find the spark in someone else? Or stay and wait for the romance to come back?”

Should you wait for the spark to come back? Or move on?

Hi Riley:
It can be challenging when you reach the point in a relationship when things feel stagnant and that special spark is missing.
It sounds like you want to keep things going so I suggest you take a step back and consider where your relationship began, where it has led you, and how you feel about it now. Ask yourself why things may have changed and what circumstances may have affected the current lack of sparkles. The answers are usually right there when we become still and look inside.
I also suggest broaching the subject with your partner. Ask him how he feels about things if he has any issues, and where he sees the relationship going. That will also provide context for where your relationship stands and its future possibilities.
Every relationship is different and every couple has to finds their own ways to make things work if this is what they both really want.
Take the time to look inside, then trust your gut and intuition. Ultimately, this is about your finding the happiness and love you deserve.
Good luck.
