The Perfect Relationship Doesn't Exist, No Matter How Many #CoupleGoals You See

As much as we'd like there to be, there just isn't a Prince Charming out there for everyone.

The Perfect Relationship Doesn't Exist, No Matter How Many #CoupleGoals You See

As a little girl, I grew up thinking that there was a Prince Charming for every girl and that everyone got a happily ever after. As I got older, I began to realize that while love can make you feel that you're on top of the world, it can also make you feel like you're breaking into pieces.

I found that no relationship is perfect, and trying to find the perfect relationship is impossible.

In today's world, social media has had an impact on how we view relationships. #RelationshipGoals can make you feel like you're doing something wrong with your own love life because we see other couples that look like they have the perfect relationship. We only see the good parts of relationships on social media, not the bad. No one knows about that stupid argument they had at 2 a.m. or how they took a week-long break last month.

My friends have commented on how my boyfriend and I are perfect for each other, and while we do love each other, sometimes this statement annoys me. I hate it because we aren't perfect. No relationship is perfect. We work hard at our relationship by communicating, being committed, and trusting one another. Others believe that we just magically found each other and everything in our relationship is cotton candy and rainbows, but that isn't true.

No one is perfect. Every person has their flaws, which are brought into the relationship. Thus, the perfect relationship will always elude us. Couples fight, and while they may have their disagreements, that doesn't mean that they don't love one another. If you never argue with your significant other, that should be a red flag. Your life experiences are bound to be different, so never disagreeing with anything means that you don't know them well enough, or one of you isn't interested enough in the relationship to care.

There will be times that your relationship will hit a rough patch. Perhaps you've been arguing about not spending time together. Being in a good relationship means that you want to work things out with your significant other and help them with what they're going through. If you love someone and are in a healthy relationship, then you should want to improve the relationship. Thinking that a perfect relationship exists means you probably run at first sight of conflict. Acting that way will never let you find a relationship.

Don't compare your relationship to anyone else's. Trying to achieve the perfect relationship will strain your relationship. While it may be impossible to have a perfect relationship, it is possible for you to be in a great relationship. Try to find someone that loves you for yourself and who you enjoy being around.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
