I have had friends who have been in a relationship from high school and 10 years down the line they are still in a happy and healthy relationship. Isn’t that just so cute and adorable? If you are in a long, long, long term relationship have a read ahead and see if you can relate to this.
1. Stay Committed
When you have been in such a long term relationship, it is difficult to picture any other person in your life other than the one you love. However many problems or misunderstandings may arise but you always find your way through it and come out successful and have an even stronger relationship.
2. A Friend For Life
As you start off as being friends first then eventually being in a relationship, you know you have found a friend for life. You can share your secrets without being judged, you don’t need to find a friend to go shopping with or to watch movies you have always got one to go with. You can do crazy, fun stuff and do not feel the need of having more friends.
3. Date Nights
Date nights are super romantic when in a relationship, somehow it is not the same after marriage. There is always an extra level of excitement, eagerness, and fun when having date nights when in a long term relationship.
When you are in a relationship with your partner for a long, long time you automatically get in a comfort zone with each other. You are no longer embarrassed to do certain things in front of each other for example burping or farting which is very common as human beings but we are so particular not to do such things when in a new relationship. But once you have been in a relationship for a long time, these things don’t matter anymore.
5. Similar Interests
It is only common when you tend to spend quality time with someone you love, you tend to develop similar interests like watching particular genres of movies, enjoy hiking or cycling, love a particular kinda cuisine or go clubbing. Whatever it may be since you enjoy each other’s company you enjoy the activity, even more, isn’t it?
6. Know How To Compromise
For any relationship to be successful, there is always a compromise. It is very important to be able to adjust and meet halfway for each other’s happiness as that will lead to a happy relationship. Those who have been in a long relationship will completely relate to this.
7. So When Is The Wedding?
This is that one question that every couple who has been in a long relationship would have been asked at least a million times. Be it your parents, siblings, friends, cousins, aunties or uncles they all will have this question. Honestly, I too asked my best friend who was in a long term relationship the same question, it is only but natural I guess.
8. When You Get Invited Together
People automatically invite and your partner for functions and social gatherings when in a long term relationship. Your relationship kind of becomes your identity and you are no longer considered a single individual and your partner gets tagged along at all get-togethers.
9. Don’t Take Each Other For Granted
It is easy to make an assumption about how your partner is feeling, but when you have spent a long time with them, you know what could have possibly hurt their feelings and try to make them feel better. You just don’t make a judgment but try to help resolve the situation that has caused the problem.
10. Find Ways To Keep The Love Alive
It is very important to keep that spark going to have a successful relationship. It can get monotonous when you have been in a relationship for a long time, but it is necessary to find ways to keep the relationship interesting and fun so as to keep the flames of love burning.
