1. If you've been with someone for four years, you're probably a LOT more comfortable with them than when you first started dating.

You used to worry what they'd think about you after each and every text, but now you're more worried about whether or not they'll be able to reach that weird hair.


6. In fact you probably know every single item of their wardrobe.

What my girlfriend thought, first 4 dates: 1. Nice shirt. 2. Wow. A second nice shirt. 3. Okay, first shirt again. 4. He has two shirts.


11. Romantic gestures are different than they once were, but no less meaningful.

In fact, if it's the right brand of tampons, it can be even more meaningful than some lousy flowers.


18. You are very, VERY good at speaking in code – or without words at all.


If a person at a party says a thing that sounds like that other thing that other person said three years ago, you only have to glance at each other to know you are both remembering that thing and how it makes you both feel.

20. Special dates are less intense and stressful than they once were.
