    21 Things That Don’t Make Sense To People In A Relationship

    Please don't ask when we're getting married.

    1. When you find yourself in a new relationship, some of your single friends become absolutely terrified you won't want to hang out anymore.


    2. They act like you've died, just because you're part of a couple now.


    3. Some people assume you'll just stay home forever and you won't want to be included in guys'/girls' nights out.

    Of course we do! Although being forced to act as everyone's wingman/woman isn't super fun, I just want to get drunk and shake my hips to "Uptown Funk".

    4. If they invite you and your significant other, they might fear you two will just start PDA-ing all over the place.

    5. Now that you're in a relationship, you might get invites from other couples you don't have anything in common with.

    Just because we're all seeing people doesn't mean we have to be BFFs.

    6. Or your friends want you and your partner to come along on their date as a buffer for potential awkwardness.


    We've just come out of our own awkward dating phase, why must we relive yours?

    7. It does quickly become clear to people in relationships that single people make way too big a deal out of things like texting/calling each other.

    Just send the damn text, don't overthink it. If someone's playing games with you, it's not worth it.

    8. Once you're in a relationship you just text each other a bunch of nonsense.

    9. If you're overly positive about your relationship, some cynics may tell you, “You’re still in the honeymoon phase”.

    10. If you're long-distance, people act like it's not a "real" relationship.


    11. If you met online/on Tinder, people want to know how EXACTLY you ended up dating, as if you won some kind of game.


    I still had to plough through all the creepy Tinder lines.

    12. People also like to ask when you're getting engaged/pregnant/shacked up.


    Whoa, slow down.

    13. You just want to go at your own pace, but then you're bombarded by other people's relationship milestones on social media.

    14. Sometimes people forget you're not actually joined at the hip.

    You don't always have to invite both of us.

    15. Or on the flip side, your partner might invite you to ~everything~ they do so you don't get left out.

    I'll definitely be OK if I miss out on your football game.

    16. It's also a bit awkward when you tell your parents about your new partner and they act super relieved.


    "We thought you'd never find someone."

    Jeez, thanks.

    17. And then your partner ends up getting on better with your parents than you do.

    18. Some people assume you have it way easier because you're settled down and you don't have to worry about dating drama.

    Things can still get dramatic. Just because you're officially going out doesn't mean you're free from insecurities and doubts.

    19. You get told you're so lucky for being able to snuggle in bed with someone.

    Kinda wouldn't mind a bed to myself.

    20. Others make you feel like you're sacrificing your freedom and wasting "the best years of your life".

    Healthy relationships give you the room to be yourself and grow as a person — it's not a death sentence.

    21. And lastly, there are those people who ask: "Don't you ever get sick of each other?"
