So many 45-minute tube journeys.

2. And you've been on a date to Gordon's Wine Bar too.

Congratulations if you managed to get a table.

3. In the early stages of dating, a long journey home on a night bus definitely ruined the sexual tension between you.

There's nothing quite like snogging in a bar, waiting 15 minutes for a bus, and then spending 45 minutes watching other people eat fried chicken and shrieking to kill any romantic feelings.


6. And you'll often plan to visit each other for days at a time, because it's just easier that way.

And you'll end up just sharing clothes.

8. So eventually you'll end up living together purely for convenience.

It may seem like a big deal, but it's actually just sensible.


10. And you'll have celebrated at least one anniversary, birthday, or promotion in a tall building.

It's a bit naff but also glam, and that's the best combination.

11. You've been to Winter Wonderland together.

It's awful because of the tourists but you get to hold hands in gloves, which feels mushy and nice.

12. And as soon as summer starts, you immediately head to the park for a picnic.

You'll inevitably end up getting drunk off canned G&Ts from M&S in a pedalo.


13. But eventually you'll get bored of London in the summer, and go on endless day trips to depressing seaside towns.

You'll soon learn that Margate is the best, followed by Clacton-on-Sea, followed by Southend-on-Sea.

14. At the beginning of your relationship, you'll fill your evenings with trips to museum and gallery lates.

Drinking wine at the National Portrait Gallery on a Thursday night is a 10/10 date.

15. But eventually you'll come to think that the best way to spend an evening is cooking a nice meal, drinking lots of wine, and having friends over.

It's middle aged, but you dgaf.


18. You'll realise that even though picking each other up from the airport when one of you has been away seems romantic, it's not realistic.
