When it comes to love and partnership, I think we can all agree that one of the main goals is to get to a stage in your relationship where you feel truly ‘comfortable’. Those early stages of dating are always a little bit tense and anxious; you are still working each other out and trying to decide on how serious you want to take things, but once you have completed all of those initial tests, the next goal is to achieve verified comfortable status! Do you think that you might already be there with your boo? Here are eight signs you are comfortable in your relationship.
1. Less Makeup
You don’t feel so compelled to wear make up every single minute of the day anymore. You’ve gotten to a point where he doesn’t need to see the superficial version of you all the time, and that also means that you are happy to let him see you at your most natural. Some people would say that this is at your most beautiful anyway!
You know you are truly comfortable when pretty much everything they do annoys the hell out of you, but for some reason, it just isn’t a problem! The little annoyances are just another part of your days together, and eventually, they turn in to cute in-jokes rather than rows!
When you were first together you liked to spend a little bit of time apart to recharge your batteries, but now that you don’t put up any appearances, you are more than happy to spend every single second with him!
4. Multiple Messages
You used to be really careful about not sending him too many unanswered messages in a row, but now you don’t care how it makes you look. You’re happy to reel off dozens of texts in a row!
5. Sharing Food
Once you are truly comfortable, you will have no problem with crossing that sacred food boundary line of taking things off of his plate. That’s fine, so long as you don’t mind him doing the other way too!
Gone are the days of being polite with your personal habits. It’s actually got the point where your belches are starting to rival his own!
7. No Eggshells
You don’t walk around on eggshells anymore in his presence, because at this point you know everything about him and aren’t worried about upsetting or offending him by saying something stupid. You know him well enough now that you instinctively know what to say and what not to say, so the eggshells don’t really feel present.
You feel completely comfortable to let him go out with his friends, or hang out with people that you don’t know because you aren’t at all worried that he is going to do something that betrays your relationship. It takes a little while to get there, but when you do, it feels so good!
