You Gotta Face The Music: The 15 Stages Of Falling Out Of Love

December 31, 2012 ‐ By Julia Austin


Are you being too picky? Is this simply a transitional phase in your relationship? Are you PMSing? These are all perfectly normal questions to ask yourself when you’re feeling less-than-great about your relationship. Nobody wants to fall out of love. We fear it so much, that we’ll make an excuse for every single broken thing in our relationship (even when literally every single part of that relationship is broken) to keep up the facade that things are fine. But sometimes you just can’t deny that you have or are falling out of love. And the sooner you face it, the sooner you can move on and fall back in love with somebody new!

    i’m a gay man, and let me tell you, before I decided to completely give up on seeking a black man with redeeming moral virtue …Had I actually found one of decent variety .i’d not be abandoning my dude because it “SEEMED” I was falling out of love..

    I’d fall out of love with my momma and brother and friends and others, but i still came to my senses after a lil space…

    Anything to publish an article.

    PS: Secretly when your hetorsexual black relationships fail..i dip myself an ice cream cone. You bastids have every social advantage and network, yet still can’t make it work. Me and my dude have to meet in the parking lot of a Chik Fil A just to feel weird holding hands.

    Is it just me, or are clicking on the page links leading to automatic pop-ups..? If so, that’d be truly disappointing. We’re bombarded w/ more than enough invasive ads as it is to keep supporting the site, but not being able to read your content w/o having to battle an aggressive “Moms Work From Home!” page is over-the-top even for my tastes…esp. after that ‘these multi-page articles pay our bills’ faux pas last week. *sigh* Madame Noire, what are we gonna do…

    This seems like a repeat topic. It seems like I’ve seen this before. Smh. I’ve decided to come on this website less. Disappointment every single time
