Since when are you together with your love? Has it been two years? Seven years? One of each? Whatever the period, there are some situations that only couples who have been together for a long time know about.
A lot of things change from the beginning of a relationship, from concern about the look to a possible fear of saying something silly. Who never?
The good thing is that living together makes everything much more peaceful. Years pass, the partnership grows and intimacy transforms everything.
If you’ve been part of a couple for longer than you can remember, see if any of the topics below sound familiar to you…
1. You have a lot of inside jokes
Slang that no one knows, grimaces or nicknames that make no apparent sense. But you two always understand and always laugh, of course.
2. They tend to understand each other only through their eyes
Sometimes it even feels like telepathy! Over time, any frown or sign the other makes becomes easily understandable.
3. And they are not ashamed of certain bodily noises
Gone are the days when letting out a fart was a sign of the end of the world. Happens, man. And feeling comfortable on that level is liberating.
4. There is always some joke about marriage
Especially at family lunches, someone will mention rings, engagements or weddings. No one wants to pay your bills, right?
5. Or about when the children will arrive
Others love to put pressure on children… But remember that you have to decide what to do with your life. For the others, make a lettuce face and that’s it.
6. You keep your individuality
Loving is not synonymous with being glued. You have your time to study, see friends, have a good time watching a movie or doing whatever you want.
7. But they also love spending time together
Staying together on the couch, walking hand in hand, having a cup of coffee together… These are such delicious moments…
8. Getting groomed and shaved all the time is no longer important
It’s really good to spend the day in pajamas and stockings, with a bun in your hair. And, of course, improve the look when you feel like it.
9. And you don’t have to be afraid to do silly and childish things
Do you know when you can be exactly who you are, without fear of judgment? With your partner it should be like that.
10. You know grand gestures of love are cool, but everyday ones are even better
No serenade is needed. Sometimes winning a chocolate on any given day or having dinner with your favorite dish makes all the difference in the world.
11. And they can’t wait for everything the next few years will bring
May the coming months, years and decades of much love, respect and complicity always come!
