Is it your ego, or him?
It’s human nature to want to feel special and focused on. That’s why the beginning of a relationship is always the best because your new guy is so curious about you, hanging onto everything you say and do. Obviously, over time, your partner will know you and you won’t be this enigmatic, magical specimen to him anymore. But, that doesn’t mean he can’t still make you feel special. You should always feel special in the eyes of your partner. That’s why you chose to be with each other. If that feeling seems to have faded, ask yourself this: is it because your partner has stopped making an effort, or because your ego is too big? You need to be a pretty harsh self-critic to figure it out but the truth is some people are addicted to having people fall in love with them, but not stay in love with them. Are you just seeking constant beginnings, unable to notice the ways your partner makes you feel special later in a relationship? Or has your partner truly stopped trying to make you feel special?
