People Are Sharing The Ways A Relationship Should Be 50/50

A good relationship is made up of two partners who consider each other to be equals and split their responsibilities in the relationship accordingly.

On Twitter, people have been sharing the ways they believe that a relationship should be divided 50/50, and the answers are hilarious.

This Is A Necessity To Me

In a perfect relationship, there is one person who loves pickles and one person who cannot stand them, so that every time a sandwich comes with one on the side, both parties are happy.

This Is The Modern Form Of The Hunter-Gatherer Relationship

Tens of thousands of years ago, our ancestors learned that dividing the means of food sourcing is the best way to survive. Today, the hunter is just the person who is less awkward about talking to strangers.

Tell Me I’m Pretty!

What’s the point of getting into a relationship if the other person isn’t going to hype you up every time you buy some new clothes at the mall or get a haircut?

I Know So Much About Giraffes

I’m not going to lie, this is my ideal date. I would love to just walk around with someone for hours as I tell them all the facts I know about sloths.

You’ll think that he wants to spend every night at your place because he wants to spend time with you, but in reality, he just wants to use your $40 eye cream.

Either we can each have one half of the brain at all times, or we can each have the whole brain half of the time; I’m good with whatever he wants.

Sorry, Bro: She’s Not The One

You’re sending her a “hope you get a good night’s sleep <3” text, she’s at another guy’s place telling him, “It’s so chilly in here!” so that he’ll come to cuddle her. She’s not the one, bro.

This one is genuinely wholesome and I’m here for it! There are few better feelings than being able to see your partner work hard and succeed at something they love and celebrate their wins.

It Only Makes Sense

If I’m out at the gym sweating on the elliptical and dying trying to do squats to build a big butt, the least he can do is pay for my gym outfits.

Avril Lavigne Was Ahead Of Her Time

He was a boy; she was a girl. Avril really could not have made it more obvious. Perhaps the best relationships are made between a punk and someone who does ballet.

I Ain’t Saying He’s A Gold Digger, BUT

Honestly, men just want to be treated to nice things and to look pretty every once in a while too, so yeah, I will buy you those Air Jordans, cutie.

Extra Points For Horses

Ladies, picture this: you’re driving over rolling green hills in the countryside in the middle of summer. Your boyfriend looks to the side, points, and says, “Look at those cows!”

Life is good.

Okay, This Is How It Normally Goes

relationships should be 50/50 i have a crush and he disappoints me

In a real situation, I meet him and tell him that it’s okay if he doesn’t want commitment right now, but could he at least meet me halfway and treat me like an actual person with feelings? He cannot.

This Is Goals

a relationship should be 50/50. He buys me lingerie and I wear it for him

Every time I walk past Victoria’s Secret or, honestly, any lingerie store, I’m so tempted to buy something hot until I remember that I have no one to wear it for.

“No, I Don’t Want Anything”

a relationship should be 50/50. he gets fries for himself and I eat half of them

I don’t know why, but I feel like the female brain was programmed to always say that we don’t want anything at the drive-thru only to eat his fries. It’s in our DNA or something.

Me Too, Girl

A relationship should be 50/50. He is Harry Styles and I pretend he knows I exist

What I would give to date Harry Styles… Not only is he talented and good-looking, but he also just seems like a fun, good person to be around. Harry, if you’re reading this, my DMs are open.

Why Are We Like This?

a relationship should always be 50/50. she has a dream about me cheating and I apologize.

I feel like it’s almost a universally female experience to have a dream that makes you mad at a partner. One time, my mom had a dream where my dad cheated on her and she didn’t talk to him for the whole next day.

In Summary, This Is What We All Want

a relationship should be 50/50, I bring the best out of you, you bring the best out of me.

Deep down, what we want in a relationship is to feel like being with the other person not only makes us happier, but they also encourage us to be the best versions of ourselves.

In Reality, I’m Here

Relationships should be 50/50, I'm not in one, and nobody want me

Unfortunately, I don’t even have a relationship to split 50/50. Maybe I’d even bargain and let it be a nice 60/40 split in my partner’s favor. However, my closest relationship at the moment is with wine.

All In All, It Could Be Worse

a relationship should be 50/50. he cheats on me with his 20-year-old student and I create years' worth of false diary entires, pretend to be pregnant, stage a crime scene, and fake my own murder so that he goes to prison for life (still of ben affleck with missing poster of rosamund pike in Gone Girl)

If a man ever complains about you being too needy in a relationship, just remind him that Mrs. Amy Elliott Dunne from Gone Girl is your inspiration, and you can always follow in her footsteps.
