Every Relationship You've Ever Been In, As Compared To The ‘Love Is Blind’ Couples

Come on, we've all been like Jessica at least one point in our lives.

Every Relationship You've Ever Been In, As Compared To The ‘Love Is Blind’ Couples

The six couples that got engaged on the show were able to see each other in the flesh and have alone time together. Once they met in person, their relationships were really taking place, and the viewers could see for themselves if the couples were meant for each other or not.

Even though some relationships had crazier partners than others (*Ahem, Jessica), I think most people can identify with each relationship portraying different ones you might have experienced in your own life.

1. Lauren and Cameron: The Serious Relationship

View this post on Instagram

Right before this experience, I was just at the point where I had given up on the fairytale. Feeling like we sell little girls these dreams of a Prince Charming that doesn’t really exist. Clearly God had the last laugh. I was open minded entering this experience honestly never expecting to fall in love and become the happiest I’ve ever been all while being recorded for the world to see. When I said Cameron looked like a Prince I meant it... he to me embodied everything I had dreamed of in my fairytale... Kind, smart, loving, selfless, brave could make me laugh and cry all in one conversation... but most importantly made me feel valued and loved. Of course like anything in life we are humans and not without struggle. But as you mature you learn that the struggles are what strengthen you and help you realize what needs more care. Im excited to continue this next chapter with you Mr. Hamilton. Us against the world. Bonnie and Clyde (minus the shoot up) 😉 #LoveIsBlind currently streaming on @Netflix 📺❤️ 📸 @lajoyphotographyllc

This is the relationship you've been dreaming of. Your partner is smart, kind, and wants nothing more than to love you for just being you. There are rarely any fights because you're both understanding of each other and only want the best for one another.

You can't help but smile around them. There is no crazy involved. No one is playing games. Both of you are on the same page. You have the same goals, the same values, and the same mindset.

It was a match made in heaven or perhaps made by Netflix.

2. Amber & Barnett: The Fun & Goofy Relationship

You're dating a womanizer, but you just might be the girl to change his childish ways. After having his fun as a player, he finally decides he wants to settle down with you. Your only issue is that he has some psycho exes (*AKA, Jessica) who tries to get in between the two of you.

The two of you are so attracted to each other on every level that not even a girl who lets her dog drink wine (Sorry, Jessica but that was just WRONG to do) get in the middle of your relationship. You spend most of your time together laughing and having a good time.

It's a very playful relationship and you're both about having fun together.

3. Kelly & Kenny: The Best Friend Relationship

View this post on Instagram

Communication✨ Our relationship was based on vulnerability and communication, from the beginning to the end. These photos were taken post wedding; amongst the emotions that had us both stirring in our minds, we always were able to find comfort in one another. . In this moment, this beautiful moment, we both expressed how that was the hardest thing we’ve ever had to experience. . What was difficult was having my Mom and Dad see me in a wedding dress for the first time in my life, my Dad walking me down the aisle, our friends and family witness a wedding that wasn’t going to end in “I Do’s”. . And on the flip side, Kenny’s parents had to witness the same for their only son.💔 . Emotional is an understatement. . Kenny and I were on the same page pretty much the entire time. Out of respect for our ourselves, families and friends, WE said “I don’t”...💛 . Did we continue dating after the show? Are we still friends? Find out tomorrow on the Reunion show.💛 . . @loveisblindnetflix @netflix @lajoyphotographyllc . . #chaselifewithkelly #chaselifetogether #loveisblind #netflix #becomeabetteryou

There is nothing wrong with your significant other being your best friend, but it might be a problem when you're more best friends than lovers. You share a lot in common, and your values and beliefs match up perfectly, but that's all there is.

You're not necessarily attracted to them physically or emotionally. You just happen to like a lot about each other, but the "like" never turns into love. You both thought this friendship should turn into something more serious, so you tried it out, but it just felt wrong on every level.

4. Damian & Giannina: The Emotional Rollercoaster Relationship

At first, the two of you really hit it off. You love spending time with each other and doing things together. Everything seems like a fairytale until, one day, things change out of nowhere.

The honeymoon phase has come to an end and the problems begin to arise. One minute your partner is obsessed with you, the next they are ignoring you because they are annoyed by something you said. One minute you're in love, the next you're screaming at each other over the smallest things.

One of you starts to bring up the other person's past and trigger all of your and their insecurities instead of trying to fix them. Trust starts to fade. There are a lot of arguments, tears, and apologies involved, but the apologies are only temporary band-aids.

You're hot and cold. One day you're talking about getting married and having kids, the next day you are talking about how you aren't meant for each other and should just break up. This cycle never ends. You're always walking on eggshells around each other trying not to upset them.

In the end, yes, you do love them, but love isn't enough to keep your relationship together.

5. Mark & Jessica: The One-Sided Relationship

Netflix

This one hurts. One of you is invested in the relationship while the other isn't fully committed. They like you, they even believe they love you some days, so they said "why not?" and gave you a chance.

They are only with you because either the person they actually liked rejected them or they are just really lonely. The one partner feels like they are settling, but at least it's with someone who is 100% for them, right? Wrong.

In the end, you know it will never work out with one of you loving the other person more. Both partners need to give it their all in a relationship if they truly want it to work. People like crazy Jessica think that being with someone who loves them more is all they need to be happy, but they are the ones who end up leaving because they know it doesn't feel right.

You thought you could imagine a future with this person, but it just wasn't meant to be. One partner is still hung up on an ex or isn't dating for the right reasons. This is a short-term means to happiness, but it's not the relationship you'll be in forever.

6. Carlton & Diamond: The “Too Much Baggage” Relationship

😢💔🙏🏾 #LoveIsBlind

A post shared by Carlton Morton (@carltonmorton) on

Sometimes you can fully be into someone, but the more you get to know each other, the more baggage gets revealed. In some cases, you can deal with it and look past it, but that isn't always the case.

This time, you just can't handle their past. It's too much for you. You do have feelings for them, but some things are so big that it outweighs your feelings for them. It's a sad way to end a relationship, but it's better to end it before things get too serious anyway.

You just want a relationship with someone who doesn't carry all these dark secrets and evil pasts. Some relationships just aren't worth it.

While we all probably think these couples were crazy for getting engaged within a week without even seeing each other, we at least can relate to each of their short-lived Netflix relationships. No relationship is ever the same, and these daring couples portrayed six different types for all of America to relate to.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

2812
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11383

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
