Signs You're In A Comfortable Relationship With Your Partner

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.

Why You Should Stop Chasing Him

You deserve better.

They say “the thrill of the chase" makes someone more enticing. There's just something about wanting something you can't have that drives you crazy (in a good way). There is never a dull moment. Pursuing him is a challenge. Nothing comes easily. What's the fun in that anyway?

I'm going to tell you this: stop chasing him. Stop forgiving him when he forgets to answer your text messages and phone calls. Stop being the one to always make plans. Stop letting him bail on you. Stop waiting around for him. Stop being lied to. Stop making excuses when he doesn't make time for you. There is a difference between someone who is “hard to get" and a flat out jerk who doesn't give you the time of day. Stop letting him use you.

You deserve to be with someone who makes you fall asleep every night in the middle of texting him because neither of you want the conversation to end. You deserve someone who plans dates for the two of you. You deserve someone who asks you to hang out before midnight. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you just as much as you do with them. You deserve someone who insists on paying for your ice cream. You deserve someone who won't deceive you. You deserve someone who is straightforward. You deserve attention. You deserve affection. You deserve a partnership that is mutual, not one-sided. You deserve to be chased.

You are better than 3 a.m. “Hey" texts. You are better than a night spent watching a movie just to fool around. You are better than trying to decode his vague messages. You are better than his shadiness. You are better than mind games. You are better than being ignored.

If you have to chase him, he's not worth it. Don't settle for someone who makes you beg for his attention. If he is genuinely interested in getting to know you, he will put in the effort. A relationship where your feelings are reciprocated is far more rewarding than one where you constantly feel like you have to drag him along.

Change your mentality. Become more independent. Be confident, be bold. Find happiness in being alone. Don't waste your time pathetically chasing after someone who doesn't feel the same, but doesn't have the heart or the courage to tell you so. Your self-confidence and positivity will make you radiant, and eventually, you will attract the kind of guy who is mature enough to not mess with your head.

Ghosting Is Not Only Annoying, It’s Childish—Get Your Act Together And Respond

It's time to stop ignoring conversations.


The term ghosting is defined as the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication. (Also, how sad is it that it actually has coined definition.) Whether you are ignoring your co-worker, friend, tinder match, mom, I can guarantee you that everyone, at least once, has ghosted on someone.

And it's understandable. That's how our society is built now. If you don't like something, you stop using it and move on to something else. If you don't want to be in a conversation, you ignore it and move to the next conversation. But when you begin to do that with every conversation, you are no longer communicating. You're just being childish.

Ghosting is easy because if you don't like how the conversation is going, you can just exit out of your messaging app and pretend it never happened. But the problem is that the other person that's involved with that conversation can't pretend like it never happened. The intention behind the ghosting is still there. Whether you are mad at that person, feel uncomfortable, or just don't want to listen what the other has to say, the receiving communicator will still know what you're feeling because you can't think of a response. The "ghoster" just couldn't face their issues and decided to hide behind a screen. And that's infuriating. If you can't handle the responsibility or responding, you shouldn't be able to start a conversation at all.

Of course, it's easier said than done, but we need to get back into the habit of finishing conversations. We need to be able to face our problems and know how to communicate them to others. We need to understand true interaction if we want to be able to have a real relationship with other people. So stop being annoying. Stop being childish. Respond.
