drift with one another

To-day Elaine felt that, without having actually quarrelled, she and Comus had drifted a little bit out of sympathy with one another. The fault she knew was scarcely hers, in fact from the most good-natured point of view it could hardly be denied that it was almost entirely his.

Could anyone explain the bold part?

    she and Comus had drifted a little bit out of sympathy with one another. = she and Comus had not been in agreement as much as previously.
