You are still attracted to that person but the don't fill the void in your expectations around a relationship. If you don't become FWB you become a bitter hag who blames the disconnect on an imaginary clinical condition your partner has. I've been a the receiving end of that a few times myself but never again. Oh..thanks for trying to make it personal guywhoisajerk!I agree with your comment about co-dependents getting sucked back in.How often do people in on-again/off-again relationships decide to cohabitate or make the leap to get married? And while approximately 12 percent of those married couples who had experienced cycling at some point in their relationship did so their marriage (i.e., a trail separation), most had engaged in premarital cycling.Once On-Again/Off-Again, Always On-Again/Off-Again? It’s not too surprising to discover that couples who were on-again/off-again while dating later become more likely to cycle during cohabitation.I am co-dependent and allowed myself to get sucked back in 5x, same woman. I will do anything for you no matter what, just don't leave me I think some relationships can be like a drug. Perhaps theyll leave when they realize the relationship isn't toxic, but like a wanting the drug, they'll return again and again to get the satisfaction of that temporary fix. Hello everyone up here it of a great privilege for me to share this short testimony on how Dr Alex was able to restore my relationship back to me after 7 months.
This is a fascinating finding because it mirrors the type of evidence documented in on-again/off-again relationships.
The poor relationship quality characteristic of cycling during relationships seems to persist into cohabitation and marriage.
It’s as though the lower quality experienced during dating carries over into the next stages of a relationship, in which more constraints make it harder to get out of (i.e., cohabitation, marriage).
But it’s important to know what happens in cyclical relationships as people progress through their 20s and 30s and into their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond.
As time goes on, men and women often see their relationships evolve into those marked by more constraints—factors that inhibit couples from breaking up.
