Relationships take work. They need to be fed and nurtured in order to remain satisfying for both parties. Often the process of drifting apart is gradual. When we find ourselves growing apart, we need to decide if we are going to re-focus and make some changes or if the relationship is over.
In every relationship, there will be periods of greater and less intimacy and connectedness. This is normal. When we move through periods of less intimacy we will often see the areas where we need to focus more clearly.
Knowing the subtle signs of growing apart can help you identify when you might need to reevaluate your relationship.
