Should I Stay or Should I Go?

I have a friend who tells me that I am the person she calls when she is on the verge of giving up on a relationship. She's ready to throw in the towel, she's had enough, she wants to find the door and leave. And then she calls me and I have most of the time told her to stay and keep fighting for the relationship and most of the time she does stay and winds up thanking me for it later. 

Making the decision of whether to stay or leave a relationship is one of the hardest decisions a person can make especially when you've invested a lot of time and energy into the person you're with.

But Where's the Spark?

Some call it love at first sight. Fireworks. Je ne sais quoi. Instant attraction. Chemistry. Whatever you call it, most if not all of us have experienced it at one point in time or another: you met someone and went, "Whoa." They swept you off your feet and it was game over. You were hooked. This is what most people crave and what society has told us to expect when it comes to falling in love. They say if you're not feeling that spark, something is wrong and it's time to move on to the next. You'll feel it with the person you're meant to be with is what we're told. But do you really?
