Women fall out of love every day. Globally, its a daily occurrence.However, the loss of these loving feelings rarely happen suddenly. Usually one or both partners get too comfortable and stop paying as much attention to each other as they used to. As the relationship begins to slowly break down, the union enters a point of no return. One day you wake up next to each other and realize you’ve become strangers — or worse — enemies. If the woman in your life has recently broken up with you and you can’t seem to figure out what went wrong, here are some reasons why she may have fallen out of love.
1. The relationship suddenly lacks intimacy
When a woman feels emotionally connected, she feels a greater capacity to love and be loved. Psychologists have said a woman needs to feel that her partner wants to know and understand her deeply.
In an article titled ‘Power to Change’, psychologists Sherven and Sniechowski wrote:
Most people associate the word intimacy with sex. But real intimacy is so much more than that. It’s about being open, sincerely wanting to know about, understand, learn from, care for, enjoy, like, and love the person you’re with — for who she really is. … No matter the occasion, or even at the end of the day, don’t miss out on being emotionally intimate with the woman you love.

2. You don’t protect and defend her
If your family or friends say something disrespectful to her or about her, do you come to her aid? Or if a random person at a bar tries to make an advance, do you step in? or do you just sit on the fence in both scenarios? Of course, women aren’t weak human beings in need of protecting, but they do need to know that you care enough to show concern for their physical and mental welfare. If you demonstrate a lack of concern for her well-being, this sends the message that you don’t care about her at all. You are only in the relationship to get your own needs met. If you really do care, show it with your words and your actions and this will make all the difference.
3. She doesn’t feel appreciated
If you want your lady to stay in a relationship with you and be committed to you, you’ll need to show her how much she means to you. Make her feel like she is important and loved. If you treat her as if she’s an afterthought, she will begin to feel unappreciated. Expressing your love and appreciation for the woman in your life is one of the best ways to nurture the relationship.Nobody says it will be any easy, but if you don’t learn to appreciate your woman, you risk loosing her to whoever shows her the attention she desires.
4. Someone else is paying her more attention
An attention-starved partner is bound to stray. A woman needs to know that she is desired and that you are happy to be with her. As soon as someone starts giving her the attention she craves, this can be enough to make her fall out of love with her partner and fall head over heels for the person who is fulfilling her need for love, attention, and approval. Affirm your partner often and don’t take her for granted.
5. You don’t support her or her dreams
A woman needs someone to share her hopes and dreams with. The last thing she needs is someone telling her she isn’t smart enough to get that promotion, or not pretty enough to land that acting role. You should be each other’s cheerleader. So cheer her on and let her know she’s pretty, smart, and doing a good job at just being her. We all need some encouragement from time to time, and there’s no better person to hear it from than the one we love. Nothing is more wounding than being put down by the person who is supposed to be in your corner.
