It’s easy to fall in love but it’s quite another story to keep staying in it. Because after the ‘getting to know them’ phase comes a whole new world of relationship milestones. But the best part is that if you’re with the right person, these milestones seem to just breeze by, without any thought. For example, you feel completely at ease when you’re around them even though you’ve just met. Or the fact that’s it’s very natural for you to imagine spending the rest of your life with them (minus any Bollywood music in your brain’s background). If you are feeling all the feels right now, know this: conquering these 11 relationship milestones with your bae are sure signs that you’ve truly gotten your happily ever after.
You guys are each other’s 3 a.m. people.
There’s nobody you’d rather talk to on the super bad days other than your best friend who also happens to be your lover. That’s a killer combination right there. You can talk to each other about anything and everything, from burps to a bad interview experience.
Moving in and living together has come very naturally to the two of you.
The thought of living together has evolved very naturally between the of two. While the two of you are planning the big move-in, your decor retains spunky elements of both your personalities. The two of you bring in the best of both worlds, yours and theirs, to make a house, a home.
You can fart in front of each other with complete ease (and rhythm).
I don’t know how important it is to the universal segment of couples, but man, if you can’t burp and fart in peace in front of your soulmate, what’s the point? It gets even better if you can make a game out of it, occasionally.
The two of you may be complete opposites, but your differences add to your love rather than subtract from it.
They say ‘opposites attract’ and they’re kinda right! It’s never a bad thing if you and your partner have varying personality traits. It’s beautiful to be bonded on the same life principles, but you’ve got to have some diversity to truly have fun!
You are absolutely comfortable with his folks and vice versa.
Your folks are not only completely smitten by your partner, but you suspect that they might love him more than they love you. Well, it’s almost a win-win isn’t it?
The two of you share similar life values and support each other to nourish them.
When it comes to core life values, you and your partner match a 100/100. And that’s how the foundation of your relationship has strengthened over time. You help each other along the way to being the best versions of yourselves and you respect each other’s dreams as much as your own.
The two of you can have a great time, no matter where you are — be it at home in pajamas or painting the town red.
Your romance is not limited to a particular setting. You guys love each other’s company, be it at home catching up on the latest TV series cuddled on your favorite couch, or when you’re checking out a newly opened cafe in town.
You feel at home in each other’s presence.
When you’re with them, you’re home. Their presence is comfortable, secure and safe. You feel at complete rest when the two of you are together.
Also, the two of you are very understanding of each other’s midnight food cravings.
Now, this is a recurring scenario and the two of you are #relationshipgoals when it comes to this aspect. Whether it’s craving deep-fried, cheesy toast at 1 a.m. or just wanting to binge on cold noodles, the two of you are all up for taking care of those midnight cravings.
You have a tanker of inside jokes and pet names that you all can’t stop obsessing over.
This is your combined treasure. Having a plethora of inside jokes that piss the hell out of your friends when they hang out with the two of you, is TRUE GOLD. But these jokes, jabs and pet names all form a unit of some of the sweetest moments you guys have shared.
The two of you share beautiful physical chemistry that’s rooted in mutual love and respect.
The two of you are present for each other’s desires and bodies in the most loving way possible. This equates to a physical chemistry that’s pretty much out of this world.
