Love is one of the greatest feelings in this world. This is the feeling that gets a man or woman so out of the world. It is good to love and feel loved. Strangely enough, many of us are turning away from this feeling for some reason or two best known to them.
When someone tells you they no longer give out their hearts then you should know they are done with the feeling called love.
In this regard, we are talking about the love shared in intimate relationships. Why do people fall out of love? Let us try figuring this out in this write-up.
1. The doubter
You may have issues with yourself. You barely trust yourself. You feel you are not capable of loving yourself let alone loving your partner.
The words; "I love you" often comes as a lie on your lips because you know deep down that your entire life is a deception. This kinds of you always fall in and out of love and never decide to love again.
You are part of those people who barely trust themselves to love. You often find comfort in these words of Shakespeare which say; “I pray you, do not fall in love with me, for I am falser than vows made in wine.”
2. The broken
Falling in love is one thing and falling out of love is another. Love is a good thing but not for those like you who have suffered at her mercies. In the name of love many like you have suffered broken hearts, ruined marriages, death...you name it.
Just as they say, love is like a rose, its flowers make you sense the aroma of touch as its thorns prickle the delicate heart. Out of heartbreaks, you have coiled into your shelf never wishing to fall in love again.
3. The scared
Some people like yourself are scared to fall in love. You sit back and watch the pain and disappointment others go through and just decide not to even try falling in love. These are the kind of people like yourself who value their heart to the core.
You want to keep it all to yourself and prevent being heartbroken and disappointed. Love, for you, is a good thing. You watch scenes of it on television and read pages of it in story books but you are just not ready for it. You are the scared kind of person.
4. The player
Falling in love is a weakness for you. It will always be of interest to put themselves first. You want it all; you want their body, mind and devotion yet do not want to fall in love. You are called 'player' because you find pleasure in manipulating people based on theirlove needs.
It is all about reading their love language and getting so much in return for making them feel loved. In the end, you will be the winner and they the loser. You could win their money, possessions, trust, confidence...it is a game for you and you always play to win.
5. The fragile
You are just like a piece of glass. You could crush out on the ground at the least provocation or mistake. You love too much and cry too bitterly. You are the fragile one.
This group of people, like yourself, falls in love so deep that the least mistake on a partners side could break everything for them. They know how fragile they are and so they do everything possible not to surrender their hearts so easily.
Love, for you, is all about being extra careful. The least mistake that happens could cause you a lifetime of misery.
6. The hardened
You have seen and suffered much. The pain and torture of life's experiences have molded your heart to be hard and impenetrable.
You can never love anymore. In fact, love, for you, is an enemy. For you, the price for love has been so bitter that you can never stand to give it a second chance. You are human but yet have a heart of stone. You are called the hardened one.
Final words for you
No matter which category you fall just know that love always stands. It is a nice experience to wake up in the morning knowing very well that there is someone or something to love, something being your job, a hobby or even a sport.
Never be left out in this whole new world of love. As a renowned poet, Maya Angelou once said: "Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go."
