20 Things That Only Happen AFTER You Become Comfortable Around Your Significant Other

20 Things That Only Happen AFTER You Become Comfortable Around Your Significant Other

You know you've become comfortable around your boyfriend/girlfriend when you're not shy to do one or more of these things.


After you've reached a certain point in your relationship, you notice yourself doing some ridiculous things that you'd only do if you're incredibly comfortable with someone. For me, I notice my boyfriend and I growing closer and closer as time goes on.

Here's a list of 20 things that prove we've become very comfortable with each other.

1. You got them hooked on your favorite TV show

My love for Law and Order: SVU has been shared with my boyfriend. Now, we binge watch it together.

2. You have a favorite restaurant you go to together 

Forget the stage where I'm too shy to admit where I want to eat. We both share the love for endless bread sticks.

3. You know what your significant other orders at every restaurant 

It has become easy to predict each other's orders, down to the beverage they want.

4. You splurge on unhealthy foods together. 

Every once in awhile, a nice ice cream date is necessary.

5. You text each other's family

Sometimes, you text certain family members more than your significant other.

6. You have shared embarrassing stories

You know those stories you swore you'd never tell anyone?

7. You can communicate strictly using facial expressions

In a silent room, we can still communicate just by looking at each other.

8. You begin to love their dog as if it was your own 

You know it's serious when their dog falls in love with you.

9. You share/steal clothes from each other

Some of my favorite articles of clothing are ones that don't actually belong to me.

10. You have inside jokes together

Laughing at something that no one else understands becomes a way of life.

11. You always have to share food/drinks

Forget the idea of having your food to yourself. Sharing is caring in a long term relationship.

12. You know how to get on each other's nerves

You most likely know the one thing that gets under your significant other's skin. (And use it to your advantage.)

13. You have a favorite song

You will purposely play this song every time you have the chance to, and you both know every lyric.

14. You allow yourself to be gross around each other

Burping contests? Yeah, those get pretty serious sometimes.

15. You have them tag along to everything

Family events? Birthday parties? Weddings? You have a built in date to any event.

16. You send ugly snapchats

You learn to embrace the "I woke up like this" selfies you send.

17. You learn how to compromise

You learn to pick your battles and not get your way sometimes.

18. You catch yourself shopping for them

A little too often, you catch yourself picking up things you wouldn't typically notice if it wasn't for your significant other.

19. You make ridiculous bets with each other

When you hear, "loser has to buy dinner" things get pretty serious.

20. You aren't afraid to admit how much you care for them

You'd tell anyone how you feel about your significant other.

11 Struggles Every Nice Girl Understands

Because sometimes it's the worst.

We are all taught to be kind-hearted human beings. Nonetheless, some of us seem to follow through more than others: we're called the "nice girls." But being the nice girl isn't all hearts and smiles — in fact, sometimes it's more trouble than it's worth.

1. You take on way more than you can handle because the word "no" is not a part of your vocabulary.

2. When you actually do have the courage to say no, you feel like the worst person in the world.

3. People take advantage of you like it's their job.

4. Your kindness is often mistaken for weakness — people neglect to realize that even the nice girls have backbones.

5. You entertain every Tom, Dick and Harry because you don't have the heart to say, "F*** off!"

6. You feel that you need to keep everyone around you happy.

7. Always forgetting to keep yourself happy in the process.

8. Sometimes you wonder if your purpose in life is simply to please everyone around you.

9. You can never lie because everyone knows that high-pitched tone you get when you try.

10. You keep most of your problems to yourself because you couldn't possibly trouble someone else with your feelings.

11. Yet, you're the master of listening to other people's issues.

5 Signs Your Boyfriend Might Be A Dirty Rotten Cheater

Now that we have Valentine's Day behind us, I finally feel comfortable bursting your precious love bubble and giving you the real tea on how all of those things you're questioning about your boyfriend are probably just signs he's cheating on you.


I just spent the last week with my jaw on the floor after the discovery that my best friend spent the better part of 2 years with a guy who was actually cheating ( a lot ) basically the entire length of their relationship. And now that we have Valentine's Day behind us, I finally feel comfortable bursting your precious love bubble and giving you the real tea on how all of those things you're questioning about your boyfriend are probably just signs he's cheating on you. If you encounter any of the following 5 signs, then girl you better get the hell outta dodge.

1. You NEVER get the invite to family gatherings.


Brunch with the fam? He's not calling you. Christmas Eve at Aunt Sheryl's? He's not calling you. His sister's birthday party? He's definitely not calling you. It may not seem like a big deal at first, but if he has met your mom, your dad, and your cousins and still isn't inviting you to come along, it's probably because he doesn't want his mom to get confused that he had a totally different girl over last week.

2. He can't stand you being anywhere near his phone.

Cheater's Phone

I would think this one is an obvious red flag, but you'd be surprised how many people believe guys who say they just want you to "respect their privacy." If he is constantly texting, snapping and shoving his phone into his pocket immediately after hitting that lock screen, you may very well be in for a world of hurt. If it's going off at 2 AM, well girl, I shouldn't have to say more to convince you he's cheating.

3. You rarely go out in public.


I know, I know, he's told you a hundred times that he's just a homebody and would rather be snuggled up watching "Catfish" with you than going out anywhere, but that's probably because he is just scared you guys will run into his other girlfriend. If you do end up going out, it's always out of town or something loud and crowded like a concert where you guys would be hard to spot.

4. He NEVER wants to post about you two on social media.

Cell Phone

He says stuff like "Oh, I just don't feel the need to publicize our love." or maybe "I have a crazy ex and I don't want her to harass you online." Those are both actually just lies. What he really wants to say is "I just don't want evidence and time stamps of our relationship in case I get caught." The best is when they tell you about how they like girls who are off the grid. Sounds like a cheater to me...

5. He's constantly accusing you of cheating.


Most girls I know will chalk this up to him just being a jealous guy. But let me tell you something honey, nothing makes you more paranoid than a guilty conscious. If every time you two argue, it divulges into him saying he's not sure if he can trust you or that you have too many guy friends or that he wonders what you're doing on nights without him, well he's probably just manifesting his own fears.

There are no promises here that he is definitely cheating, and if you really trust your man then more power to you. But if any of these signs had you thinking about your own relationship, then I highly recommend that you move on to the next one girl. There are plenty of other fish in the sea, even fish who won't cheat on you!
