2. Feeling unwanted


The feeling of being unwanted or simply not needed is an emotion that can get taken for granted, when really it is pretty integral to a relationship. 

It might sound like a cliché but Helen says: "Think bored housewife and a husband who doesn’t even notice when she gets a hair cut. Or the hard working husband whose weekend is filled with nothing but more chores.

These types of couples complained that their relationship had become functional. They craved the freshness of new romance and went elsewhere to find it." 


All of the aspects of a relationship that make each partner feel loved and cherished were gone and couples were left with nothing more than an empty shell.

This is where the problems start, everyone likes to feel appreciated, the sad fact is that if one partner isn't providing it, the other can find it somewhere else. 

"Relationships should make us feel loved and energized otherwise we’re better off alone. So make your partner feel that way," advises Helen.
