I’ve only been dating my boyfriend for a little over 8 months, but we seriously act like an old married couple. We take non-romantic showers just to save time (and water!). We fart, burp, and pick our noses in front of each other. We’re not afraid of each other’s horrible morning breath anymore. I am way past the point of waking up early and brushing my teeth and fixing my makeup so that he thinks I look and smell like a perfect angel in the morning. There comes a time in every relationship when you get content, and that “best” version of your self kind of fades away.
I think there is something special about having a your best friend also be your boyfriend. You can act like yourself and not have to be afraid of them judging you for being gross or weird or anything. Some people think it’s a drag to be that comfortable in a relationship–but for all those people in one, you know it’s not so bad. Because at the end of the day, there is still so much love and passion and heart to make up for the grossness. They’re still the person you want to end the night with.
