Are you in a long-term relationship? If so, you'll be able to relate to these 15 situations! Long-term relationships usually don't turn out as you had expected. Discover the 15 things you can only understand if you are in a long-term relationship.
Staying in is the greatest thing EVER!
If you’re in a long-term relationship, you and your SO probably kissed goodbye to partying hard every weekend a long time ago. Couples in long-term relationships love spending their weekends at home, with a takeout and a good movie.
Wearing your man’s clothes is totally acceptable
Gone are the days where you dressed up sexy and made a huge effort to look good. Now you’re all about sweat pants and wearing your man’s comfy sweaters, the relaxed look is the way forward.
Choosing what and where to eat never gets easier
Couples everywhere struggle when it comes to choosing where and what to eat, because let’s be honest we hate making decisions! ‘I don’t mind, you choose’ is always our go-to answer.
Celebrating your anniversary is important
No matter how many years go by, celebrating your anniversary never gets any less important, it is after all an amazing celebration of your love for each other.
Kissing never gets old
PDA may no longer be on the menu, but cute good morning and good night kisses are still equally as important as they were at the beginning of your love story. And, now you don’t need to worry about smudging your lipstick!
Solo time is necessary
One of the keys to a successful long-term relationship is being able to keep a healthy balance between time for your partner and ‘you time’. Having friends of your own who you can spend time with is crucial.
Nothing is ‘disgusting’
Between popping zits, sharing a towel, kissing with morning breath and examining your partner’s body parts, nothing creeps you out or disgusts you any longer. You’ve seen it all!
Valentine’s Day is just another day
When you first got together with your SO, Valentine’s Day was an occasion you celebrated, but as the years fly by, you realize that you don’t need it to be February 14th to proclaim your love.
You’re always on the same page
Whether it’s with a cheeky smile, a wink of the eye or just a quick look, you guys don’t need to verbally communicate, you just get each other and you’re always on the same page.
It’s okay to share beauty products
Although you might not want to admit it, but c’mon we know you share your moisturizing creams and even help each other apply it in the hard to reach places.
It’s okay to be weird around your SO
Spontaneously breaking out into a rendition of your favorite song and dance routine is totally acceptable in a long-term relationship. Your license to be weird has no end date.
Cooking fails aren’t real disasters
Remember back in the day when burning your partner’s favorite meal was your worst nightmare? Well, now the good news is you no longer feel the need to pretend you are a master chef, because he knows your culinary skills are limited.
Netflix and chill
Netflix and chill literally is just binge watching Netflix whilst chilling in your pajamas. The sexier meaning doesn’t necessarily apply to your relationship.
Pointing out each other’s flaws isn’t a big deal
Letting your partner know it really bugs you when he watches TV with the volume up way too loud is just not a big issue, because nothing can tear you apart.
Snuggling is great, but…
Retreating to your own side of the bed is even better, right?!
