It's no secret that while you are spending your whole life with someone, you’re bound to see some (good) changes in your significant other! All things considered, it's easy to see why the honeymoon phase of a relationship gets all of the hype as it’s young, fresh and new. But, if you’re with the right person what happen’s after can actually end up being even more satisfying.
Here are 7 things that typically change for the better:
1. You don’t need to be fancy 24/7
When you’re past the honeymoon stage, you don’t need big expensive meals or extravagant trips to appreciate one another. You will be focused on just spending quality time together.
2. You joke about bodily functions
Remember when you would hold in that fart on the couch or not talk about our body insecurities? Those sort of things become silly, inside, jokes now.
3. You’re Physically More Relaxed
Whereas once you might hours before a date getting everything ready, now you’re happy to let it hang loose.
4. You Don’t Go To The Toilet In Private
Performing everyday “human activities” is to some the the mark of true love. Get used to spending time together in the bathroom.
5. You appreciate the small stuff
After all the glitz and glamour, when you begin to settle into your new life you soon realize just hearing your significant other laugh or just see them genuinely happy is all that you need. Spending quality time together alone doing nothing starts to sound much better than a weekend of partying.
6. You don’t worry about having to impress the parents anymore
Meeting Mom and Dad is intimidating and nerve-wracking. Once you’ve crossed this threshold, you’re polite but also your true self. You’re not fretful about conversations with them, in fact you may actually enjoy them.
7. You know your love is real
You’ve seen each other at your best and worst. You know how the other person reacts and how to handle it. If you can be there for each other during the darkest of times, you know your love is solid.
