Things people in long term relationships can relate to! #international kissing day ♡

| INTERNATIONAL KISSING DAY |

Today is International Kissing Day, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to write about relationships! I have spent almost an entire decade with the man of my dreams and he still surprises me every day. So, as I was preparing to write this article I got to thinking about our earlier years together, and how much we have changed, both individually and together as a couple.

To celebrate this day of kissing I am going to compile a list of things I think all people in a long term relationship will relate to.

The good, the bad, and the ugly!


▹Using the bathroom alone is considered a luxury◃


Whatever the combination, sharing the sink, shower, loo and bath with your other half is a daily occurrence and showering together is a wholly practical affair. It is also completely normal to have a conversation whilst one of you has a morning constitutional and the other brushes their teeth.

♂♀

▹You get stuck in a life-long argument about what you want for dinner◃


You start the week with good intentions, you write a meal plan, you shop for food, and you genuinely believe that this week will be the week you get your sh** together.

Though, it inevitably ends with you both stood in the kitchen screaming “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”,  then eating beans on toast at 11 pm promising each other tomorrow will be different.

♂♀

▹Not married? No kids? WTF?!◃


Although me and my fella and I have been together for 10 years, we don’t have kids and we aren’t married. For some reason, this FREAKS people out.

If I had a penny for every marriage and baby comment or question we have had, I could pay for a wedding.

Be quiet, please.

♂♀

▹Body smells and functions are completely acceptable◃


I still remember the first time I farted in front of my fella, it was around 6 months in. The most delicate of farts and I was so embarrassed. Thinking about this now makes me laugh.

Nowadays we don’t react to each other’s bodily functions. I regularly find myself nose deep in the armpit of a worn t-shirt to determine whether he can get another day out of it and vice versa.

♂♀

▹You can communicate without speaking◃


You both have the ability to communicate with each other using just facial expressions.

♂♀

▹You address each other only by nickname◃


Sweetpea, pickle, peanut, bean, pea, teapot. Mostly ridiculous and non-sensical.

When they first name you, sh** is about to go down.

♂♀

▹Staying in always wins over going out◃


Staying in with snacks and Netflix- and cuddling on the sofa will always be far more appealing than going out.

You have watched every binge-worthy series and Netflix and chill is literally just Netflix and chill.

♂♀

▹You know each other’s type and point out people you know they will think are hot!◃


You have reached a point where you can comfortably be open about who you find attractive and know it doesn’t mean anything.

♂♀

▹You are brutally honest with each other◃


… and you don’t take offence. You can openly tell them they smell, need to brush their teeth etc… and you do!

♂♀

▹You are thankful every day…◃


… that you get to spend your life with your best friend.
