When things are feeling stressful, we start to feel like it's all bad, all the time. Every relationship has its ups and downs resulting in emotional distance, a loss of intimacy, and the death of romance. When you fall in love, you hope that the way you love will be returned to you in kind. You want your love to be reciprocated, to be unconditional, to be fulfilling. You want someone to care for you, nourish you, and cherish you in the same way you do for them. You and your partner may just love differently. That’s not to say that your partner doesn’t care for you, but maybe not in the same way you care for them. But if you feel disappointed, frustrated, and unfulfilled because you love someone more than they love you, don’t ignore it. You deserve to have a relationship that feeds you in every way.
