11 Signs That You Are In a Long Term Relationship
The Odyssey Online

Having since spent the last few days with Laura Cossette, my good friend for a number of years (even that is an inside joke that would take too long to explain), we thought it would be apt to talk about the perks of being in a long-term relationship. Honestly, we were just guessing, but we'd like to think we got sort of close!

1. When you see new couples out in public and you feel 85 years old

2. When calling them by their name is weirder than whatever gross nickname you have for one another

Some of the grossest/cutest I've heard are: Honey Bunches of Oats, Honey Bear, Boo Boo Bear, Love Eyes, and the weiderst, Love.

3. The moment you know that they need you to back them up

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073275505951114-681744856_giphy%2520%283%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=629&h=9ae4a5d28c7c9878f225389931c9cd50c2b69574685cfc24f6b76e3cd6afde24&size=980x&c=1575233804 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073275505951114-681744856_giphy%252520%25283%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D629%26h%3D9ae4a5d28c7c9878f225389931c9cd50c2b69574685cfc24f6b76e3cd6afde24%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1575233804%22%7D" expand=1]

4. Or when you can charge into a fight and they’d be right behind you throwing punches

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073274682704621-881236838_giphy%2520%282%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=512&h=57b1d300eeb15fdcec80740c1500208bc95251b5de1aaa4b1f595827837b949f&size=980x&c=669911351 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073274682704621-881236838_giphy%252520%25282%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D512%26h%3D57b1d300eeb15fdcec80740c1500208bc95251b5de1aaa4b1f595827837b949f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D669911351%22%7D" expand=1]

5. Someone asks them a personal question and you respond with the right answer without really thinking about it

My Mom to SO: So when do you go abroad?

Me: September 14th.

6. When you are the only person in the world that can get them to put down that 30th piece of candy

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073277163442938-1871192425_giphy%2520%284%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=977&h=ae5e7895e74c32cf4cf7b3b881bbf22355440112f1404514405d94c2ace5f8c4&size=980x&c=2291391436 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073277163442938-1871192425_giphy%252520%25284%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D977%26h%3Dae5e7895e74c32cf4cf7b3b881bbf22355440112f1404514405d94c2ace5f8c4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2291391436%22%7D" expand=1]

7. Or when you are actually happy to share your Chipotle burrito with them…sometimes

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073278138223026189271235_giphy%2520%285%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=23&h=f1617dbecd23eb58457d7300c9b7e78ec8903a24d676f50eb963dec3db08cae1&size=980x&c=3753035804 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073278138223026189271235_giphy%252520%25285%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D23%26h%3Df1617dbecd23eb58457d7300c9b7e78ec8903a24d676f50eb963dec3db08cae1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3753035804%22%7D" expand=1]

8. When you both respond to something at the same time, the same way, and in perfect harmony, making you feel like this

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732820581428861075211805_giphy%2520%286%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=670&h=74adedaaa0ba85683b5d01a9b035cd1283180c45450535d2a9b0cdd607dd21ad&size=980x&c=2217816460 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732820581428861075211805_giphy%252520%25286%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D670%26h%3D74adedaaa0ba85683b5d01a9b035cd1283180c45450535d2a9b0cdd607dd21ad%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2217816460%22%7D" expand=1]

9. When they see that you are feeling less than, and they know exactly what to do and say to make everything right in the world again

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073283267567541-1812402654_giphy%2520%287%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1012&h=4c4026cef06630b2e0fb2a4f4b9418812be77b22f575c01870fb0b4d8e6e565a&size=980x&c=713838890 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073283267567541-1812402654_giphy%252520%25287%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1012%26h%3D4c4026cef06630b2e0fb2a4f4b9418812be77b22f575c01870fb0b4d8e6e565a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D713838890%22%7D" expand=1]

10. When Netflix and chill means actually snuggling up in sweat pants under a blanket and re-watching that one show you’ve both seen a 1,000 times

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073295830246441-1463745785_miBnM13.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=233&h=5ddab4f6704f44899ac4e8ef6a4444393c5c4e8c53e72799876eea1140c32f85&size=980x&c=808574295 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073295830246441-1463745785_miBnM13.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D233%26h%3D5ddab4f6704f44899ac4e8ef6a4444393c5c4e8c53e72799876eea1140c32f85%26size%3D980x%26c%3D808574295%22%7D" expand=1]

11. When there is no one on earth that you’d rather have by your side on your worst day

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732713286370661768295536_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=613&h=a1a641a5c45028f9d9a0124fab6e2094b7a0ce01df77a7f5a6ac9d9f60af473b&size=980x&c=2335700074 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732713286370661768295536_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D613%26h%3Da1a641a5c45028f9d9a0124fab6e2094b7a0ce01df77a7f5a6ac9d9f60af473b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2335700074%22%7D" expand=1]
