The irony. To be understood- these are my thoughts of how a relationship hopefully is so don’t hate. I absolutely have no idea in truth.
Freedom to text at any time
Because you’re in a relationship and you can text about even stupid things just because you feel like talking to someone. No hard feelings on disturbing a friend and holding back and feeling lonely. Many times I hesitate over the number of contacts on my phone, finally not texting anyone.
You have company when you go somewhere
Like the movies or a mall (maybe not the latter?). If you want to watch a movie and don’t want to go alone, you can ask your bf/gf without inhibition. Sure, they might not be able to come but you can ask. In India, my companions are cut half because I can’t ask only one guy without a girl because every person, dog and lizard who see you together shame on you. Especially if it isn’t a date! At least if it was a date, the effort is worth it.
Freedom to rant and fangirl
The worst problem of bookworms is that we hardly have people IRL to fangirl with! Even if one of my friends do listen, I feel slightly guilty because they absolutely don’t care and it’s a nuisance for them. If you’re dating someone, the person has signed up for this and you can freely fangirl. Same for stupid rants, reasonable rants and any rants.
Someone you actually want to talk to
A best friend of mine pinches money and saves up very difficultly to put data packs and talk to her boyfriend. (This is India, if you want to live, your parents mustn’t know you date.) (Also, most of us don’t have pocket money or minors working system. So we have to beg our parents for money everytime we need something.) How much ever I love my friends, I will not be that desperate to talk. We’ll manage. I want to get that feeling.
This post has become more of what I want than “advantages”.
You can pester your partner on grounds of “showing love”
Because what else speaks stronger than texting them every minute of the day, right? It’ll also give you some fun and makes your day lighter. Your bf/gf can deal with it, don’t worry 😛
One person who WILL support you and compliment you/your work all the time
Let’s face it, you’re awesome. Why wouldn’t they? BUT! That’s one person whom you can share your silliest achievements with.
Free hugs anytime!
Do I need to say more? Hugs are awesome. I love hugs.
Constant reminder that someone actually likes you!
We all need it, boy do we all. Its a big confidence booster.
And I’m sadly out of points. Again, this is just what I imagine it to be. Absolutely no experience with the real thing.
Do you agree with what I said? Can you think of any more?
