To love someone and have that person love you is, without a doubt, incredible . But relationships have to be worked on every day, otherwise what started out as a nice romance can end up in a lack of love.
It may also be that, over time, the relationship has cooled down, and your partner may notice that you are no longer looking out for him or her as you once were.
