    21 Things You'll Get If Your Relationship Is Basically Twentysomething Grandparents

    You're more into just food than food sex.

    1. You think it's super romantic to just lie in bed next to each other reading.


    2. And you love a wholesome daytime adventure.

    You'd probably rather go for a nice hike than queue to be at the front of a gig.

    3. You have a terrible habit of cancelling plans just to hang out at home together.

    4. You've totally got over the fact that everyone thinks you leave everything early to have sex.


    5. But obviously you're actually just going home to sleep.

    6. When you have a date night, 9 out of 10 times it involves not leaving the house.

    7. And when you do leave the house, your favourite thing to do is shop for practical items.

    "Babe, I think we need some more tealights " is pretty much the greatest thing they could say.

    8. Or of course, eat!


    Going out to dinner will always win over going to a bar.

    9. But instead of going to the latest trendy place you'll have to queue for, you usually just go to that place round the corner.

    You'll read the whole menu and then order what you always have.

    10. You're constantly shocked at other couples' stressful-sounding plans.


    Other people don't schedule enough time for napping.

    11. Neither of you have the energy to have any actual drama in your relationship.

    The only things you really argue about are what to eat and what to watch on TV.

    12. But you love a good bitch about other people's drama.

    You only do it to each other because you know it's a safe space for judging people as much as you like.

    13. The only cheating either of you are regularly getting up to is watching an episode of one of "your shows" alone.


    But you'd obviously be up for rewatching it, so it doesn't really matter.

    14. And a lot of those shows involve cooking or home improvements.


    The best kind of tension is whether a cake is going to rise or not.

    15. Trying out a new recipe is a pretty exciting night in for you guys.

    16. If you do go out-out, your favourite nights involve a lot of stupid dancing to songs you know all the words to.


    And of course being home by 2am at the very latest.

    17. If the club is too sweaty, there is no room to dance, and they are playing music with no lyrics, you are out of there.


    If you need to be drunk to have fun, it's probably not for you even when you're wasted.

    18. The majority of the time you spend together you are in comfy clothes with no makeup.

    19. Because you never have to pretend to be anything you're not in front of them.

    They know you're not "cool" and they love you anyway.

    20. You guys know that sometimes it's more romantic to stay in with comfort food than dress up for a fancy dinner.

    21. And you never, ever have to hold in a fart.
