There's always a moment, right? Like, there's one defining moment when you know it's over. Something changes.
Maybe you don't get the "goodnight" text you're used to getting every night. Maybe your one dinner plan keeps getting rescheduled. Maybe you can't even put your finger on what it is.
It's just something shifted, and now you know... it's over.
That moment has always interested me more than the moment you fell in love. It's the moment when you fell out of love or, even worse, when you noticed the person you loved fell out of love with you.
The concept of that shift from hot passion to cold distance has always interested me.
Maybe it interests you, too. Or maybe you're worried your relationship might be coming to its own close.
