Unfortunately, there comes a point in some relationships where things start to feel straight-up stagnant. Maybe you and bae seem to already know all of each other’s stories, you’re resorting to the same places on date night, or the sex is predictable AF. It’s common for relationships to feel a bit lackluster with time because the novelty and excitement that come with learning new things about each other and experiencing new things together starts to fade as familiarity and comfort set in. So, how long does it take for a relationship to get boring? Unsurprisingly, it varies from couple to couple. But interestingly enough, many people agree on the time frame that things take a humdrum turn.
According to Urban Dictionary, “Boring Couple Syndrome” is a real thing, and the symptoms include: “neglecting friends, social activities and anything remotely fun or exciting, coupled with increasingly reclusive behavior which in turn can lead to a gradual loss of personality.”
