You'll Only Understand All These Things If You've Been In A Relationship For A Long Time
#19 Fighting over how to squeeze the tube of toothpaste.
1. Telling each other "I love you" by farting in front of each other, because they are the only person you are comfortable enough with to do that.

6. Returning home minutes after you've already left the house because you forgot to give your S.O. a goodbye kiss.

14. Taking off your bra/street clothes in front of each other the second you enter the house because you’re at home and you want to feel comfy, alright?
15. Rearranging everything in the dishwasher after your S.O. loaded it because they did it “the wrong way.”
16. Secretly watching something on Netflix without your S.O. and then pretending to watch it for the first time when you get to watch it together.
17. Passive-aggressively leaving your dirty dishes in the sink or on the kitchen counter when you’re mad at each other.
18. Fighting over where to put your “too dirty to put it back in the closet, but not dirty enough to wash” clothes...and then moving the pile of clothes from your side of the bed to their side anyway.
19. Fighting over how to squeeze the tube of toothpaste.
20. Making up after a fight by having sex.
21. Falling asleep while watching a movie, but yelling “I’m still watching!” when your S.O. is trying to turning it off.
22. Leaving the room on movie night to get something from the kitchen/or go for a pee break without pausing the film and then asking “What did I miss?” after coming back.
23. Permanently fighting about WHERE to clip your nails. (“That’s gross, can you do it in the bathroom?!” “But I’m watching this show right now!”)
24. Getting annoyed by your S.O. leaving everything slightly open (drawers, doors, shower curtains) and ending up doing it by yourself EVERY time.

31. Getting ready for bed before having sex because *efficiency*.
32. Closing the curtains in panic because your S.O. is running around naked in the house and you don't really want to put a show on for the neighbors. (Or, IDK, maybe you do?!)
33. Telling each other a story by yelling it across the house/apartment because neither of you wants to leave the room you're in.
34. Fighting over who adjusted the thermostat and also what the "right" temperature is at home to a) not freeze to death or b) not melt away.
