How do you know when your relationship lacks a spark?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s very common for your head to make decisions about relationships instead of your heart.  Here are a few ways to know that your relationship lacks a spark:

1. You’re not excited: After a few weeks of dating, some couples experience a slump in their relationship.  However, for couples lacking a spark, this may never wear off.

2. You prefer groups: If you have more fun on group outings, like double dates or parties, than you do on one-on-one dates with your partner, then you should reevaluate your relationship.

3. You rationalize: If you find yourself supplying reasons why you should date your partner, then it’s clear that your head — not your heart — is making decisions for you.  Just because a partner seems like an ideal candidate on paper does not mean they’re ideal in real life.
