This Is What It Really Feels Like To Fall Out Of Love

The idea of falling deeply, madly, passionately in love terrifies me. And, honestly, what makes me find it so incredibly terrifying is the possibility of one day waking up and realizing that deep, mad, passionate love that once burned within you is suddenly gone. And, what's worse, your partner might still be feeling it.

Because that's how the world works, right? We fall in and out of love on different time tables, sometimes with no real rhyme or reason. It just sort of happens. And there's not much you can do about it.

As terrifying as it might be, the concept of falling out of love has always piqued my interest. How does it happen? How does it feel? Do you tell your partner? OMG, how heartbreaking would that be for them. Do you even care about breaking their hearts if you don't love them anymore? I've always been curious.
