I'm in my mid 30s and my girl and I have been together for over 11 years. We have had our ups and downs like most couples, but have recently come to a roadblock in our relationship. We are really good friends and like to do most things together. We get along well and have similar goals in life. Several months ago, she felt as if I was being to needy in the relationship and wanted us to do more things on our own. I realize that this is for the best for both her, myself and our relationship. Things seemed to be getting better however, we had a conversation recently that led her to disclose to me that she doesn't love me romantically. She loves being with me and thinks that I'm a really good person, but she doesn't feel any real passion towards me. After 11 years of being together and thinking she was "the one" for me, I am left with the feeling that there is no "fixing" this. I do romantic things on a regular basis, but it seems she just isn't feeling it. She recently stopped wearing her engagement ring (understandably when she is unsure about marrying me) and I think that although we are trying to work on this issue, she is getting ready to move on. Any thoughts on the situation are welcome.View Thread
