You guys may be reading the title and think, "That's silly, why would you be with someone if you aren't happy" The truth is, some people believe they are happy in a relationship, because they are so blinded by love and they are so used to being treated a certain way, that they think it is normal, even when it isn't.
When you do find an amazing relationship, you will realize the TRUE benefits of being with someone who GENUINELY makes you HAPPY. This is something I have learned the past 6-7 months.
1. They ALWAYS Have Your Back
They will be there for you during your best and worst times in your life. When you win an award or get a good grade, they will be the first ones you want to tell, because you know their response will make you feel a sense of happiness you can never describe in words. When you don't win at someone or even lose a loved one, you know everything will be okay, because you know they are there for you through it ALL. Having this consistency in your life makes life so much easier.
2. They Make You Feel Better About Yourself
Even when you aren't wearing makeup, your hair is a mess and you're in sweatpants that are 1 size too big, they see your natural beauty and let you know it. They don't care if you aren't looking "On Fleek" because to them, your imperfections are what make you perfect in their eyes. They don't mind kissing you with morning breath. They just love you for YOU, and the amount of love they show for you everyday helps you learn to love yourself more and more, even on days you may not love yourself. Society can suck, but when you have that one person who makes you feel like you're the prettiest girl on Earth, every single insecurity seems to fade away.
3. Someone That Understands That You Both Have Your Own Lives Too
Although you would love to spend every waking second with your significant other, you both are mature enough to understand that you have your own lives and that sometimes, you can't do things together. You both understand you have your own family, your own friends, your own social life, your own career, and that a healthy relationships allows space.
4. Someone That Finally Appreciates What You Do For Them
There are so many people on this Earth that think they are deserving of everything. They think the point of a BF/GF is so that they can do everything for them that they can't do for themselves. THAT IS NOT TRUE. A true partner understands that you don't have to spend a lot of money on them, and that you don't have to spend a lot of time with them due to other obligations. SOOO because of that, they appreciate every single little thing you do for them. They appreciate the cute texts, the random phone calls, the good morning/good night messages, the little gifts that "Made Me Think of You," the random date nights, A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G.
5. They Will Do Things You Enjoy
This person will do anything you want, just because they love to see you smile. Whether it is going to see a movie they have no interest in watching, or driving 1 1/2 hours to see a bunch of carved pumpkins. This person gets genuine enjoyment out of seeing you happy, and usually in the end, they end up enjoying themselves more than they even expected.
6. Someone Who Won't Give Up
Every relationship goes through it's ups and downs. No one in a relationship is perfect. This person understands that, and when times get rough, they will continue to stick by your side. You never have to worry about waking up one morning and they are gone. You both know it is normal to have the occasional stupid fight, and that your love is stronger than any BS argument. When times get rough, you both know that your loyalty will never be broken, and that you guys would never do something to hurt the other person. You guys don't want the other to go to bed upset, so you both go out of your way to make things better.
When you find that one person who that makes you extremely happy and does all these things for you, STAY WITH THEM. I know I am.
