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.

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

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.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

I don't need to feel bad about myself because of who I follow on social media.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.
