How to use "Running hot and cold" in context?

A running hot and cold relationship is when one person consistently shows overwhelming enthusiasm, love, and caring while the other person's feelings either dwindle or disappear altogether. This can be frustrating, as one person may be willing to do anything to keep the relationship going while the other person seems to not care or want it as much. This can happen for a number of reasons, such as stress at work, anxiety, or a lack of communication. Running hot and cold can be difficult to manage and often leads to a break-up.
