    12yrs together

    How do I tell if it's time for a 12yr old relationship to end?

    Am I still in love with him or do I just love him?

    If you're considering breaking up after you've fully known him for 12 years, then apparently you don't love him enough to think he'll be a good lifetime partner.

    Are you ready willing and able to leave? Do you want to? Is this a continuum of all the issues in this thread?: [Register to see the link]

    Have you tried a magic eight ball? That's about the best any of us can do with all this detail provided.

    OP, we need more details before we can offer you any answer. Ultimately, you're the only one who can make that kind of decision.

    I have to ask you to describe to us what you think the difference is between the two.

    You assess where the relationship is and where it can go. If it's in a bad place, and you've tried to make it better, and it's not getting better, and you believe it's not going to, it might be time.

    Have you considered flipping a coin?
    Seriously though, we need more detail. The feeling of being in love isnít going to last a lifetime and ideally changes into something more profound and meaningful. Are you bored in the relationship?

    How to tell...this is just random guesses by the way. If you aren't close at all anymore, if you don't share any interests at all anymore, if you aren't attracted to one another anymore or are unhappy all the time when you are together...(not a rough patch as all couples have that) I mean you genuinely don't like being with this person and its lasted months.
    If you no longer have a sex life and its been that way for a long time. If you do nothing but fight and its been that way for months and months.
    If someone cheated or lied or did something bad that is a deal breaker.

    These all indicate that it could be over.
