Yes, We Have Been Together For Over Five Years, But No, We Don’t Get Tired Of Each Other
Kaylee Richard

After being in a relationship for a little over five and a half years, I have been accustomed to being asked: "don't you guys get tired of each other?!?!"

And honestly, the answer is no.

A lot of people say, "if you know, you know" and I don't think that could be more accurate. We have been in each other's lives since eighth grade and we have been through almost everything together. He is my partner in crime, my shoulder to cry on, my best friend, my person, and my soul mate.

When you find your person, God put you together to be together forever, so you should never get tired or bored with each other. Of course, sometimes you need to spend time alone or with other friends but every day should be another adventure and another day where you love each other more, not where you start getting bored.

If you are bored in your relationship, they are not the one. Every time we are together we miss each other the second we leave and start counting down the days until we can see each other again. Even if we are just sitting on the couch, watching tv, it is still some of my favorite times with him. You don't need to go on expensive dates every day, just enjoy life's simple pleasures. Spend time with them doing homework, go to family game nights, support their cousins' soccer games—make every second spent together fun in some way. Sometimes just laying next to each other is enough.

If we all got tired of our S.O. after a few years then no one would ever have a successful marriage.

I know that if you find "the one" your relationship should never be boring. Every day should be a new day together where you can love each other more. Appreciate each other and make sure you let them into your life so you can grow together.

Although we have already spent five and a half amazing years together we still cannot wait to see what our future holds together. We appreciate doing the little things together even if it I just grocery shopping or baking something because it is just more time we get to spend together and I would never pass that up.

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

J14 magazine

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.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
