There are a few particularly heavy moments of realization that are unavoidable during any serious relationship. Some are happy realizations, like realizing you really love someone, or realizing there’s no one else you’d rather spend your life with. Others are not so happy, like realizing you love someone, but aren’t in love with them anymore, or realizing that despite what you once thought, this person is not “the one” for you.
The comments from this recent Reddit thread about the moment people realized their significant other was not “the one” unfortunately fall into the latter category.
And although they may not be happy moments, they are important realizations that allowed someone to move on to finding happiness for themselves rather than forcing something that didn’t work.
