This piece from our friends at POPSUGAR comes from a woman’s perspective, but let’s be honest. 1) Sometimes we need a woman’s perspective on things, and 2) We’ll be damned if she doesn’t absolutely nail this. Read on to be reminded why sometimes, settling down with a special someone beats sleeping around with a whole bunch of not-so-special someones.
Young, independent, and committed? Yep, you heard that right. This can be a declaration for anyone who’s in a long-term relationship in their 20s and contains felt pressure to “see what else exists.” Some people believe that being in a relationship in your 20s makes no sense at all They assume you’re wasting away your youth; however, I couldn’t disagree more.
I am with my boyfriend for nearly three years. Since we have been together, I’ve studied abroad, lived alone, and still go out and have fun with my girlfriends. As a couple, we’ve traveled around Southeast Asia, gone to music festivals, and lived real life almost every other 20-something – we are actually in a relationship just. I have a feeling of stability which allows me to spotlight my career instead of wasting energy fretting about if that guy will text me back or if I’ll ever fall in love.
One of the most motivated and self-sufficient women I understand are actually in committed relationships aswell. I asked them to talk about all of the reasons they love having a substantial other and compiled a listing of perks below:
You can still go through the fun a single person has (like studying abroad and dating friends) while getting the advantages of a long-term spouse.
You’ve already found what a lot of people spend their whole lives looking for – a person who truly understands you.
You have a person who knows and loves you throughout a time if you are constantly learning and growing.
The laughter is deeper, the sex is way better, and the affection is stronger in a committed relationship in comparison to a casual fling.
You’re constantly reassured of one’s talents and aspirations. It’s like having an individual 24/7 cheerleader.
Your loved ones won’t constantly bug one to see if you are dating anyone – they know and love him.
From an early on age (relatively speaking), you find out about what’s really important for you in somebody and what must be done to work toward an effective relationship.
Being able to fully trust someone is so important when trying to figure out your life.
At the end of the day, there will always be someone waiting for you.
While friends are telling you about all the immature guys they meet on Tinder or at bars, you don’t have to deal with jerks on a weekly basis.
Monogamy equals reduced risk of STDs.
You have someone who reminds you every day how much they love every part of you.
You teach each other new things, adventure together, and tackle challenges together.
You can increase the status of your relationship slowly, without the pressure to jump into marriage that can come later in life.
It’s nice to know someone is always looking out for you, there to drunkenly dance with you, and make sure you get home safely.
