Let me preface... this is not about me. At all. I'm not even involved with anyone seriously at the moment. And did you know there was a such thing as black tulips? I didn't. They're kinda cute. I am off subject.
Sooooo... with that in mind.
Your partner... your romantic partner of a year... tells you that s/he's no longer attracted to you.
"I just don't find you hot anymore."
"How long have you felt this way?"
"I'm shocked. I had no clue you felt this way."
"I'm trying to work through this. It's not about anyone else. But I still want to be your partner."
This is after a year of dating. Good qualities in both partners -- the kind mama would love in your partner. Open communication. No money drama, no ex drama, no family drama. Vacations planned and tickets bought for spring and summer trips already.
Would you stay? Would you leave? Would you wait until the partner works through his/her attraction issues? How would you feel? Have you ever lost the physical attraction toward a partner, but still had love/feelings that made it worthwhile to stay? Did you work through it? Could you be in a non-physical romantic relationship?
Now offer some of your thoughts. Or use this as a basis for a short story or character profile you're creating on your own. It's cool with me.
