Relationships are generally pretty wonderful: It's nice to have a partner to do things with, it's great to feel supported all the time, and it's exhilarating to think you might have found the person you'll spend forever with.In fact, in the early stages of love, it's almost impossible to focus on anything else.

Even if you and your partner are each other's perfect fit, you may find that the passion wanes over time. I spoke to some experts to get their take on what it means when the spark fades in your relationship and how can you make sure you get back on track.

Dating guru and relationship expert James Preece says, "The most common reason relationships fail is because you both stop making an effort."When couples are together over a long period of time, it's pretty normal to fall into patterns, and that's OK.

The thing is, those patterns can start to feel really terrible if you're doing the exact same thing every single day with no variation."It's so easy to keep doing the same things, having a regular routine, and repeating everything over and over.

It's dating groundhog day and the quickest way to get bored."Preece says, though, that the important thing is to get out of your comfort zone once in a while: "If you want to avoid this, you have to switch up what you are doing.

Have regular date nights and think up new places and activities you can try together."My husband and I do a lot of the same thing every day: We kiss every morning, we take the puppy out at the same time, we have tea together.

And we love it, but we also make it a point to get out and do crazy things a lot, too.

We go to raves and do athletic activities and take a lot of trips.

If you feel like your relationship might be getting stuck in a rut, and that's the reason the spark is fading, get out together and do something new.

Let's face it: Even the most committed, loving couples can lose their spark every once in a while.

That said, it's really easy for that spark to fade if the two of you aren't sure where you're headed as a couple.
