Why did i suddenly get bored in my relationship?

Has this ever happened to you? I just want to experience something new, different. Don't get me wrong I'll always care for her but I'm just not feeling it anymore?

Have you ever been through the same thing or something similar?
(We've been together for a year now) but I plan to end it on Tuesday. Does this makes me a terrible person ?

There's a few schools of thought on this. I think there are two main:

1) When the 'magic' is gone, leave

2) The magic always leaves, if you want to be in a relationship then make it work

Emotions come and go, a commitment remains steady whether your emotions are charging high or stagnant.

Completely normal for a guy with a dick and balls

Up to you if you want to re-enter the dating market (good luck) and try to find someone better, or just have a bunch of flings (gets old after a while)

There's a slippery slope here though. If he's feeling bored after a year, and decides to switch how will he expect to be loyal to the wife once he decides to get married?

Uh oh - today is the break up day - oh did it go? Did you tell her you wanted to have 'a talk'?
