You are correct, but No one wants to be a buzz kill and bring young lovers down to earth.
Its healthy to push people to pursue and maintain their relationships.
However, I think many experience what you describe.
I think it boils down to when you are with someone for a long time, they become part of your life and routine.
You are emotionally invested in them through love and efforts.
Breaking it off with someone is really hard, especially when you had cared for them so much.
Some people are not strong enough to admit it, or ignore signs its not working out from fear of being alone.
This is why some people stay in toxic relationships. They either rely on their partner too much, or want to avoid the heartbreak and try to work through it.
Thats how so many end up in loveless marriages just going through the motions.
Perhaps I'm too broken to survive another heartbreak, but my biggest fear is entertaining a fake marriage with fake love due to obligations.
I'm just gonna have to tough it out until I meet someone that genuinely gets my heart to flutter again.>>359915
