Be Grateful You’re At Home Alone Instead Of Being Driven Crazy Like These Couples

Being stuck at home so much lately might have you feeling like you’re missing out on something. You started to envy all those couples stuck at home with their better halves. At least they had someone to cuddle with all day…

Let’s stop you right there real quick. The grass may look greener on the other side, but often times it is not.

The Good Old Days

If the standard of their relationship is being referred to the same way you refer to a broken puppy, then their problems may be slightly bigger than simply no longer having parties to go to.

The Only Thing Worse Than A Cold Is…

If we were to take a vote right now over whether it’s worse to have a cold or to be the caretaker of a man with cold, I guarantee the latter would win. I give you the challenge.

Don’t Ask If You Don’t Want The Answer

This is one of the biggest issues in most relationships, but the biggest takeaway is to not ask questions if you can’t handle that the answers—they may not be what you want to hear.

A prime example is asking if you look fat in that dress. Trust how you feel.

The Real Secret To Everlasting Love

We have yet to meet a couple that has gone every day of their relationship without questioning it at least once. It’s okay not to be each other’s biggest fans every single day. Just make sure to alternate those days.

It’s A Question Of Timing

It’s not that she didn’t want to have a conversation with him at all, although that is also very probable, but that out of all the possible scenes in the movie, he manages to pick the one you actually need to pay attention to.

Revenge Is In The Small Things

This goes to show you that you don’t need to come up with intricate revenge plans to get back at one another, as those don’t usually end well. Small petty acts like this will get it out of your system without anyone getting hurt.

All It Takes Is One Forgotten Butt

When you spend too much time together, you inevitably take on passive-aggressive behaviors to avoid confrontation so often, so you can’t even tell anymore when they’re actually mad at you and when you’re just reading too much into it.

Marriage Is The Last Best Day Of Your Life

Maybe that sounds a bit morbid, but there’s no denying that so much of the excitement of dating and new experiences goes away the day you get married. Suddenly, the idea that you’re going to be sharing one bed every night for the rest of your life settles in.

Sharing Is Not Caring

To those who don’t already know the rules, let us give you a quick lesson on the laws of food when you have a girlfriend. She will say she’s not hungry. She won’t want to order with you. Order twice the amount you need because the second the food gets there, she’s going to change her mind.

Rose-Tinted Glasses Fade

You may have thought they were the hottest thing to ever grace the Earth when you first laid eyes on them, but once you have to live with the fact that they don’t mind going two weeks without a shower, the rose-tinted glasses come off in an instant.

Next Level Unlocked

I don’t think you even need to be married to achieve this level. It’s simply referred to as the level at which you stop caring about impressing them and trust that they’ll be able to hold their own for the rest of the night if you just pass out.

Not Even Remotely The Same Thing

How dare someone make such an absurd suggestion. Coffee is the way to the soul. The caffeine in it flows through your blood. You can’t just wake up one day and replace it with tea. This seems like a fair comparison.

Completely Missed The Point

What’s a woman got to do these days to impress her man? Just because she’s around him all day with sweatpants, hair in a bun, no makeup, and could use a shower, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to feel pretty to him.

It’s Like A Free Reality Show

We could only imagine the kind of stories that a marriage counselor hears all day. They probably would never need a Hayu subscription because they probably get their healthy dose of reality TV drama just by doing their job.

Not Even A Question

If you need to ask, then you probably already know the answer. Unless you’ve gotten to that phase in the relationship where even the sound of their breath is enough to bother you.

No Judgment In This Household

Life’s hard right now, so excuse us if some of us have found ways to cope. At least Champagne doesn’t judge you when you drink a whole bottle of it a day. You’ve survived another day, that’s worth celebrating.

The Laws Of Arguments

Just like the laws of sharing food, there are some universal laws to arguments that would make your life easier if you’d just cave to them. Some of which include letting the same person win.

Time Changes Things

Some things are just not meant to be pointed out, notably the passing of time. It’s just rude considering that you’re not getting any younger either. You got older in the time it took you to read this sentence, but I bet you didn’t need us pointing that out.

Silence Is Peace

You know you’ve been spending too much time together when even the sound of their voice is getting to be too much. Don’t even think about trying to engage with it. In silence, there is peace of mind…and lower odds of getting into an argument.

Why Can’t They Just Read Your Mind?

We’re still waiting for the day that we discover the technology necessary to allow us to reach each other’s minds. Until that day comes, it may work out better for us if we just say what’s on our mind…but what do we know?
