The special gestures, the grand surprises, the mushy gifts and cards.
However, there are other things, which we often take for granted
, that are much more important! The little and simple things. Here are a few simple things you DO deserve in a relationship.
1. Late night conversations filled with heartfelt confessions!
There’s just something wonderful about pouring your heart to someone you love, especially at night (going into the wee hours of the morning)! It could be random stuff, just about anything! But it does leave you smiling. :-)
2. Honesty, all the way. No matter what the situation
This is, of course, a given. We all deserve complete honesty in our relationships - and ought to extend the same to our partners!
3. Super-lazy days in bed
Yes! Isn’t there just something grand about days where you can lay around in bed all day with your boyfriend? Doing nothing but watching your favourite shows, eating your favourite food, talking, laughing (and making out in between obviously)?!
4. A bunch of new (true) friends
Friends that may be your partner’s first, but are now yours too! They love you and you love them. One big happy family!
5. A new perspective on things
This may come about after a heated debate sometimes, but we all deserve to have our existing beliefs and ideas challenged from time to time. How else will we learn and grow?
6. Silences that are anything but awkward
You can’t have something to say ALL the time. It’s just not possible. But when there are moments of silence - when you’re just sitting together, walking, eating, or doing anything else - they ought to be anything but awkward. Peaceful, calm, comfortable. That’s what silence should feel like!
7. Inside jokes and lots and lots of laughter!
We all deserve someone we can laugh with about absolutely bizarre and random things. No one else needs to understand your jokes, they’re yours! And you can laugh about them till your stomach hurts!
8. Appreciation for the things you do especially and only for your partner
When you go out of your way to make him happy, you deserve for your effort to be acknowledged. After all, the things we sometimes do to make make our partners happy aren’t always things we would do happily (or even willingly) for anyone else. It’s especially and exclusively for them!
9. Unconditional support and backing
Someone who will stand up for you even when you’re not around. Because he’s your best friend and will have your back no matter what!
10. Plenty of hugs, kisses and cuddles!
Yes, yes, yes! Lots and lots of hugs, kisses, snuggles and cuddles!
11. Someone who is proud of you
Proud of the things you do and the way you are. And proud to let the world know you’re together!
12. A confidant and keeper of all your secrets
When you share something with him you wouldn’t want anyone else to know, you can be sure that he will guard your secret with his life! He respects the fact that you wouldn’t want anyone else to know, and keeps your secrets as safe as he would his own!
