I miss myself some fucking butterflies. If things are stale should I just move on?
Butterflies are a drug. Stale is a judgment. This question is the romantic equivalent of wanting to get high because you’re bored.
If you think the relationship is stale because the butterflies are gone, that’s an indication of your emotional immaturity. People who aren’t willing to put work into their relationships move on and chase butterflies because it’s the quickest way to get their romantic fix.
That’s fine in your teens and early twenties. Eventually though, you’ll want to start developing those long-term relationship skills, because the butterflies are always gonna be temporary.
You can’t stay high forever, and afterward you gotta keep that shit fresh.
