When you find that special someone and when you’ve been together for a long time, certain weird things start happening. Both partners become sort of synchronized and start doing new things in accordance with their other half. This may seem a bit strange looking at it from the outside, but it’s a perfectly normal phenomenon. That’s just how relationships work. If you’ve ever been in a long-term relationship, you will surely relate to these 11 things couples do, compiled by Diply.
1. You are constantly talking about them
People get really annoyed because of it, but who cares? They have to know exactly how awesome your partner is!
2. You are as familiar with their childhood as they are
They have told you their funniest childhood stories a million times, but you still enjoy listening to them.
3. You enjoy the Netflix without the chill
You don’t need the chill part to have a perfect evening. You still love that part as well, but you’re completely content just binge-watching your favorite show curled up on the couch together.
4. There is no such thing as ‘too much information’
You talk freely about all your bodily functions. Any bathroom experience is obviously something you need to share with your significant other.
5. You become a “we” couple
You never say “I” anymore. Every sentence starts with “we.” You can say, “we went to the movies last night” and everyone knows who you’re talking about.
6. You basically have the same Facebook page
All of your Facebook friends are your partner’s friends, and all of theirs are yours; you are both in every single picture and you tag each other in every status update.
7. Your inside jokes have inside jokes
Sometimes one of you will say something that makes no sense to other people, but the other will get the reference to a story only the two of you know and find the quip hilarious.
8. You share all your secrets
When someone tells you a secret they can count on the fact that you won’t tell anyone. Anyone except your partner, of course.
9. When you’re in a bad mood, you don’t even hide it
When you’re having a bad day, you don’t go around acting like everything’s fine. Instead, you immediately share it with your significant other, so they don’t have to keep trying to figure it out and you can chill on your own for a little while.
10. Your interests are now their interests
Your favourite shows are now theirs as well, and what they like, you like too. It’s the best thing in the world to have someone who shares your passions.
11. You steal all their stuff
A hoodie they forgot at your place automatically becomes yours. And the snack you got for yourself might mysteriously disappear. Sharing is caring, but pinching each other’s stuff is true love.
What do you think? Have any of these things happened to you? If they haven’t, don’t worry: just give it a little more time. One day it will happen and you will absolutely love it.
