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.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.
