1. Constant Criticism
It creeps into a relationship, eventually killing any warm and loving feelings a woman might have for her guy. The constant need to nit-pick and criticize every little thing she is doing "wrong" will usually a.) knock the wind out of her sails until she feels depleted and then b.), she is going to start caring less about putting any effort into the relationship until c.) she realizes she must protect herself and self esteem, and heads for the door. There really is something to be said for, "If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything."
2. The Honeymoon Is Over
Some lovely ladies aren't the most realistic—and expect life to be sunshine and roses 24/7. After the newness of love begins to fade, and the focus is often on paying bills, work or other responsibilities, they lose interest. Reality bites—just a little too much for some poor souls, unfortunately. It's likely in these cases the women have some serious growing up to do.
3. They Stop Feeling Adored
Feeling appreciated, acknowledged and special is super important for women, who often balance and juggle so many things in life. Women are moms, housekeepers, cooks, businesswomen, caretakers, etc. While many women say they love doing it all and wouldn't have it any other way—feeling adored by their partner makes it all worth it. Often times men will express their feelings of gratitude in the beginning, but get complacent after the novelty of the new relationship wears off. Compliments and recognition are two things women love … forever, guys!
