Have you ever fallen out of love with your partner, worked at it, and fallen back IN love with he or she? If so, how did you do it? What would you recommend?

My partner and I are in our early thirties and have been together for just under two years. Our relationship has been nice and stable without much drama. We were never really "crazy in love," but we do love each other, and the relationship just works. Now, I don't know what triggered it, but recently I felt like a switch turned off in my head. I looked at him, and I thought, "I don't think I can continue this." But I want to continue it. It's a good relationship. I'm just losing interest for some strange reason, and that scares me. I'm thinking that maybe it's just gotten a little stale, and we need to shake things up. I realize that this relationship could have simply run its course, but I'd like to give it a real try before I call it quits (or he does... maybe I'm not the only one who's bored!).
Any tips on rekindling a romance gone stale? Any personal stories from people who've experienced this same situation and overcome it?
