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.
Men Only Want One Thing And It’s Disgusting
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.
Anyone Wanna Go Splitsies On A Brain?
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.
Cheer For Each Other!
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
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
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”
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
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?
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
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
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
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.
