21 Reasons Northern Couples Are Better Than Southern Couples
Where do I even begin, pet?
For starters, we have the best pet names for each other.
Our mutual love for a good cuppa tea is almost stronger than our love for each other.
And we know that saying "hello" to strangers on the street is a normal and polite thing to do, not a criminal offense.
Which means that when we visit London and nobody makes eye contact on the tube, we can be equally appalled together.
We save a fortune on heating bills because we know what the cold really feels like.
Talking of the weather, we've learned to never to rely on the sun turning up on our dates, so we have a long list of all-weather date plans.
Unlike when you’re in the early stages of dating a Southerner, there are no, “Are you sure a fourth drink is good idea?” style questions asked.
Because our dates in the pub come in at under £20.
Our arguments are precise, honest, and to the point.
And we know that couples beach holidays in Scarborough and Whitby are just as good as those in Devon and Cornwall.
We also know that shopping in places like Leeds and Liverpool is just as good as shopping on Oxford Street.
The middle-aged men in our families are some of the most practical, wise men you’ll ever meet.
We have the best banter.
And we’re never more than half an hour away from the perfect countryside spot for a romantic picnic.
Our girls mean what they say.
And our boys are fazed by nothing.
We get to have Jon Snow and Ygritte for our #relationshipgoals.
We’ll save a fortune on houses, because we know that buying in the North is the only sensible option.
Same goes for saving money on having a local wedding one day.
Basically, we're in total agreement about not living in London, and we get equally frustrated when people question us on it.
And no matter what anyone says, we know that we're the best.
