Relationship Changes All Couples Go Through

If you’ve ever been in a relationship, you’ll know that at the very beginning things are very different to for example a year down the line, which by the way is totally normal for the majority of couples! Lots of things change over a period of a few months as we really start to get comfortable with our partners and yes ladies, it does go deeper than changing our leg shaving habits!

5 changes all relationships go through at some point

1. You want to spend all your time with your new partner.

Beginning of a relationship:

Your former weekday evening habits are discarded and are replaced by cozy movie nights with a takeout on the couch or even evenings filled with football and sports! Yes it’s true, at the beginning of a relationship we are prepared to make all the sacrifices necessary to keep our partners happy, even where sports are concerned!

A year or so down the line:

A year into a relationship, both partners no doubt feel comfortable and will have settled into their routines, meaning that they don’t necessarily spend quite as much time together as in the beginning. This isn’t a bad thing, it doesn’t mean they have fallen out of love or that they are going to break up, it just means that sometimes time apart can be healthy for relationships.

2. You make a really effort to look sexy.

Beginning of a relationship:

You’ll spend lots of time in front of the mirror working on your hair-do and your make-up. You may even max out your credit cards in aid of searching the perfect LBD! You want to look beautiful and have your partner’s eyes glued to you!

A year or so down the line:

After a year of being in a relationship looking beautiful isn’t always a woman’s priority. A year long relationship exposes you to all sorts of trials and tribulations, so eventually wearing your sexiest dress and most expensive perfume is no longer a priority! Out with tight LBDs and in with comfortable loungewear!

3. Date night.

Beginning of a relationship:

When you first start dating someone, it’s normal to want to make a good impression and in order to impress our love interests, we dip our hands DEEP into our pockets and suggest going to fancy cocktail and wine bars, that admittedly are ridiculously overpriced!

A year or so down the line:

Being in a relationship for a year is a big deal, especially nowadays with dating being so easy! Year long relationships also work wonders for our bank accounts, because let’s face it, a year down the line, we can give up the pretense of being able to afford fancy eateries and make way for a good takeout!

4. Sex

Beginning of a relationship:

Need we say anymore? Most new couples can barely keep their hands off each other at their beginning of their union. Sex seems to be so spontaneous, exciting and fun, so much so that even the neighbors are probably aware of your new relationship status! Are we right or are we right?

A year or so down the line:

After a year of being together and really getting to know each other, if you know what we mean, you probably notice that the brakes have been thrown on where sex is concerned. You make love a lot less frequently than in the beginning but now it’s more meaningful and fulfilling!

5. The cleanliness of your house or apartment.

Beginning of a relationship:

When you first start dating someone you turn into a clean freak! Yes, everything has to be spotless; no laundry trailing on the floor, the bedsheets need to be fresh, having mounds of washing up is now out of the question and everything must be doused in Febreeze!

A year or so down the line:

So a year is a long time, right? Of course it is, so if your partner were to see your pajamas lying on the floor or last weekend’s washing up still hanging around in the kitchen or even an empty fridge, be reassured that they probably won’t head for the hills and run for their lives!

Congratulations on your long-term relationship and if you’re not quite there yet, get ready for all of these amazing changes to come into place!
