Romantic relationships can involve fun and excitement, making plans of the future together, sharing goals, supporting each other and having a close and fulfilling life. Over time, however, relationships can change and the each person in the relationship can develop different views. There can be miscommunication or even a lack of communication between people in the relationship. You may find that you and your partner have less time for each other, or less motivation to keep investing in the relationship. These types of issues can develop into unmet needs, ongoing frustrations, criticisms, raised voices, a sense of isolation and a lack of feeling loved. Depending on the expectations and wishes of both partners it may be possible to attempt reconciliation, but on other occasions, separation counselling with an experienced psychologist may be required for each person to move forward in the best possible way.
