So tell us: If you've ever been in a relationship that you thought would be forever, only to wind up single again, what occurred?

Maybe you kind of rushed the relationship in the beginning, and once the novelty wore off, you realized that person was fundamentally different from you.

Maybe there was betrayal in your relationship, forcing you or your partner to leave, knowing the one that was truly for you would never do something so damaging and hurtful.

Maybe you were in a situation where things were great. You two were simply clicking more on a friend level than romantic partners.

There's also the possibility that you lost your partner and found yourself unexpectedly single.
