16 Things You Start Texting Eachother If You've Been Dating TOO long

You two aren't even dating anymore...the term doesn't seem enough.

16 Things You Start Texting Eachother If You've Been Dating TOO long

There comes a time in a relationship where the honeymoon stage ends. It's not all sunshine and rainbows, dates become more infrequent, and unfortunately, the sweet "good morning" texts end.

But don't worry, that just means all the real fun is just beginning.

When the honeymoon stage ends you stop seeing that person as just your date or piece of arm candy, you start seeing them more as just another extension of yourself. And unfortunately, once that happens, all barriers that once were immediately come loose.

Does that mean the romance is dead? Just take a look at these texts you two start texting if you have been dating too long.

1. "Do my boobs look funny in this?"

Before you were uncertain about drawing attention to your imperfections, now you just want them to tell it like it is.

2. "Do you think she's hot?"

Jealously? You don't know her. If you ask this its just because you're genuinely curious about whether or not you two can agree.

3. "Do you think I have a chance with him?'

You've both been out of the game too long so you both know there is no chance, but you still like to play along.

4. "My mom told me to tell you *insert message*"

You don't know why you have to be the messenger, but you're both tight with both sets of parents so they are checking in on you as much as their own kid.

5. "Can you pop this pimple when I see you later?"

In some cases you need a second pair of hands.

6. "Get me this"

Followed by a pic of a cute dog/ animal/ beer opening toilet seat / anything you do not actually remotely need.

7. "This reminded me of you"

And it's usually a meme, a funny tweet that described them, or a funny looking animal.

8. "Shut up, I hate you."

Because they just served you a sick burn that you probably deserved.

9. "Can you see if this is infected?"

Remember those days when you wouldn't even go see them without makeup or doing your hair? Those days are long gone.

10. "Can you bring me some toilet paper?"

A favor you once reserved for siblings you have now passed the reigns onto them.


Followed by you spilling MAJOR tea. Because when someone says "don't tell anyone", everyone knows significant others don't count.

12. "Can you look this over before I send it?"

You trust their opinion more than anything so you need their approval always.

13. "You will not believe what just came out of me."

They were the one binge eating Taco Bell with you at 2 a.m. so you only feel necessary they go through this part of the process with you.

14. "Alright I'll go, but I'm going to be cranky about it."

Of course you don't care and are happy they're dragging you somewhere, but you still like to give them a hard time about it.

15. "Hey! I really like this!!"

*sends pic of anything wedding related* and somehow they always know you're just being you and not scared off.

15. "Lol, why are you even dating me."

You have no idea why, but they love you all your little quirks and tendencies in all. They see all the unfiltered sides of you and still chose to be with you. And for that, you're eternally grateful.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
