It is time to break it off with your partner, you are not feeling it! Is the love over when the spark is gone?
The relationship started out really good, communicating throughout the day, cannot wait to see your partner at the end of the day, just being in each other’s company is enough, in your mind you made the perfect pick, this is it! Months in, you are wondering why did you, where did the spark go, and the worse thing is you cannot even identify why you are both not feeling it, or you are really not feeling it, because she is just as interested as the day you met, is the love over with no spark?
Medical Science has Interesting Evidence that Love is a Drug…
Science has performed numerous brain imagine experiments on people’s brains during times when they were feeling deeply in love with that certain euphoric feeling of intense pleasure and happiness, and also on brains of people who were still together in a love relationship long after the highly romantic early stages, and also on brains of those who were experiencing deep depression and pain due to being dumped. The longer a relationship lasts, the less dopamine is released. But that doesn’t mean the bond is dying. In fact, a molecule called CRF (corticotrophin-releasing factor) helps keep couples together. The question remains, is love over with no spark?
Can we keep the Romantic, Euphoric “High” or Spark forever; is it even possible?
Neither natural or synthetic Chemical highs last forever, but like common drug addiction, a kind of natural tolerance develops, and the epidemic of short-lived romantic passionate love affairs today that many times end after a year or two, are associated with the natural levelling out of brain chemicals. When the intoxicating chemicals begin levelling out, this is often spelling the end of the delirious passions that are being understood so greatly today as a loss of Love.
From Early Romantic Love to Mature Compassionate Love
A very notable difference between these 2 kinds of Love can be described by how the newer passionate romantic love is more about how the other person makes you feel, and the longer enduring Mature Love transforms into loving the other person as he or she is. There are different chemicals noted that have effects as far as supporting this second phase of love and one such type are called Endorphin. No one is going to take the time to figure all of that out especially in the what I call the microwave age and so is the love over when the spark is gone?
Is the Love over
Without getting into the scientific mambo jumbo, it is safe to say that even when the spark is gone true love still exist, the question will be asked however is the lover over when the spark is not present. There are things that couples should do to keep the spark going, and sometimes you just have to sit back and allow the relationship to take a natural direction. Once we understand that love is not just a feeling, we are well on our way. Enjoy your relationship, whether you are feeling the spark or not.
