Enough with all the sad, negative posts on the internet about relationships. It’s time to celebrate finding your significant other and reminding yourself exactly why you choose to stay with someone that drives you outta your mind. Throw out your grudges and let’s start hallelujah-ing for L-O-V-E.
1. A ride home
We’re not saying you’re our taxi service, we simply love how you make sure we get home safe. We aren’t scared of getting kidnapped by goblins so your concern is very sweet and touching. We won’t call up our friends at 3AM when we’re commuting home, we’ll call you.
2. Back up meal option
If you decide to take a risk and order the sea urchin delicacy at your favourite Japanese restaurant but hate the taste, you always have your SO’s meal to snack on. Yes, I know some people get all “DON’T TOUCH MY FOOD” but hey, you can’t resist the puppy eyes that come from a starving girlfriend. Boyfriends are great back ups.
3. No awkward social events
You no longer have to be the girl who stands in the corner nursing the same gin and tonic throughout the night. Instead, you can gossip away with your SO and ease comfortably into group conversations because being a pair isn’t creepy while a singleton is loner status.
4. Emotional support during a freak out
While you plough through your rage driven monologue about the old bat at the office who spams your inbox with orders, your SO is quietly waiting for you to release all that pent up anger so he can hug and kiss it all better. Suddenly, you aren’t as mad as you were 20 minutes ago. Screw you old bat.
5. Face family functions together
You have a player on your team when you go to those dreaded family dinners so don’t be afraid to drop the lame excuses and accept one of those invites. If your uncles and aunts attack your career path or cherry red jumper, you at least have your SO across the room to roll your eyes at when the talking doesn’t let up. Team WE all the way!
6. #yesnewfriends and sharing
Your friends become his friends and his friends become your friends by default. Your social circle just expanded by a thousand in Facebook standards. If they’re cool and you’re cool, going out becomes a lot more fun but weekly game night is now your all time favourite thing. Even better is when you two share new music and daily commutes become less boring.
7. Your own “nook”
Oh yes, as cuffing season starts to dwindle down and people have coupled up, they do what couples do best. They snuggle the crap out of one another. Once the snow covers the floor, grab a towel and slide into that nook his body provides. You two fit perfectly together. Love more.
