What Makes a Woman Fall Out of Love?

What makes a woman fall out of love is no mystery, trust me. But let’s first dive into what falling in love is for a man in the first place.

Falling in love is a complex process that involves many different factors. It is different for every person and may vary depending on the individual’s experiences and personality. However, there are some common themes that are often present when a man falls in love.

Equally, falling out of love is also a complex process and many factors may be involved. It is also different for every person and depends on personal circumstances. But there are common reasons that I’ll discuss below.

What Does Love Feel Like?

Love is a complex and varied emotion that can be felt in many different ways. It can involve intense feelings of attraction and affection, as well as a deep emotional connection and a desire to take care of and be with the other person.

When men are in love, they may feel a strong emotional connection to the other person, as well as a physical attraction. They may also feel a deep sense of affection and tenderness towards them, and may want to spend as much time with them as possible. They may also experience a sense of protectiveness towards them and may feel a desire to take care of them and make them happy.

In some cases, being in love can also involve a sense of excitement and anticipation. People in love may feel a rush of adrenaline and a sense of butterflies in their stomach when they are around the other person. They may also find themselves thinking about the other person constantly.

5 Signs A Man (Yes, you!) is in Love

One of the most common ways that you may experience falling in love is through an intense feeling of attraction and desire. This may or may not be accompanied by a strong initial emotional connection. There is this sense of excitement and anticipation when he thinks about being with ‘her’.

A little further into the initial stage, a feeling of affection and tenderness towards the other person emerges. You may feel a strong desire to protect and care for the other person, and may want to spend as much time with them as possible. You may also find yourself thinking about the other person often, and may have a strong desire to be with them and make them happy.

These are the signs:

He makes THE effort.

Regardless of what that effort is and what for, he’ll go the extra mile for you. He shows interest in your life and wants to know more about you.

He shows he CARES.

He listens to you and takes your feelings and opinions into account when making decisions or plans. He shows concern for your well-being and may try to help you with problems or challenges you are facing.

He expresses his FEELINGS.

This is a tricky one since people express feelings in many different ways, depending on their personality and the situation. Some men may be more comfortable expressing their feelings openly and directly, while others may be more reserved.

But, in general, feelings are expressed through actions and behavior or physical gestures, such as hugging, holding hands, or giving gifts. And another important one is words, as long as actions match those of course!

He wants to make YOU happy.

He treats you with kindness and respect and may go out of his way to do things for you or make you happy.

He wants YOU in his life.

So not hidden meetings or sneaky actions suspicious of not being completely open about you.

Why Do We (women) Fall Out of Love?

So, if I do all of those things with my woman… Why has she fallen out of love with me!? You may be asking…

I know, I know… It is not fair to make generalizations about why women may fall out of love. However, as a woman, I’ll give my five cents after asking some other women around me as well.

Love and relationships are complex and personal, and the reasons why someone may fall out of love can vary greatly. It may not even be the ‘other’ person’s fault at all. 

We tend to blame others for what happens to us when in reality is all on us (playing the victim). OR take the pity stand and start wondering: what have I done wrong? I am a loser.

Please don’t! There is no one to blame and no one to pity and, certainly, you are NOT a loser.

Just because you once fell in love with someone at a given time and circumstances doesn’t mean you’re right for each other forever.

We change and evolve (thank GOd for that!) and sometimes it just happens that we grow apart. As simple as that. No blame, no shame.

However, yes, there are factors that can contribute to growing apart like:

And many other root issues that can be profoundly personal and individual.

We tend to look more to the surface causes like infidelity. Oh yeah, she’s fallen in love with someone else… Or she’s changed so much… Or she thinks grass is greener… (well, sometimes it definitely is) etc.

But before an infidelity happens, all the above factors have, somehow, occurred and you haven’t even noticed since you were very busy watching the World Cup. Do you get that?

She’s fallen out of love, what should I do now?

If you are in the situation where your woman has fallen out of love with you do this:

  • Let her go with love and wish her luck.
  • Reflect on it, go within
  • Process it,  accept it
  • Move on, when a door shuts, another one opens. This is only the beginning of a new journey of self-discovery and growth.

(no, you don’t need her or anyone else for that matter, YOU ARE ENOUGH).


It is important to remember that every relationship is unique and that no two people will experience love in the same way. So I am very aware that it is not productive or helpful to make broad assumptions about why someone may have fallen out of love.
