He isn’t just my boyfriend, he is my world, it started like any other relationship. I had my insecurities, he had his setbacks, but we soon realized that we were meant for one another. We fit together like Lego blocks and no matter how tough life got, it only made us stronger. I have realized when you are truly in love, tough situations only make you stronger.
He is my lover but more than that, he is my friend but more than that, a soul mate perhaps? I don’t know what I would ever do without him. Okay, here are a few signs that scream, He is more than a Boyfriend’. I hope you guys can relate.
1. You send him silly pictures of yourself
You send him the most ridiculous pictures and you don’t feel insecure at all. Early morning pictures; you probably think that you look like a monkey and you are probably right (Oh yeah, I mean pictures with no makeup on, completely bare-skinned), pictures of your sweaty self in after the gym and, oh yeah, late-night selfies when you look like a distraught owl.
But that’s fine, who cares? Just last night, I sent my partner the ugliest pictures of myself, to which he graciously replied saying, Aw baby you look so cute’. Someone else would have dumped my ugly self right there. Double chin in the air, I don’t care!
2. You end up laughing your butt off each time you have an argument
You have trouble taking him seriously, which might be a matter of concern in the long run; because every time he tries to impress the importance of something, you can’t help but laugh. He has such a cute angry face, plus you know he wouldn’t mind if you laugh your butt off. You know you will get through it.
3. He loves the way you roll
Have you watched Kung Fu Panda? If you have, you know what I am talking about here. You often text him about how you handle certain, everyday situations and he is freaking proud of you. Just the other day, I told him how there was so much food left after the party; I had no place to store it so I decided to have an eating competition with my younger brother. Needless to say, I won. He thinks that I am bloody brilliant to come up with such an idea!
4. You love for Netflix is too good to be true
You plan all-nighters to watch Netflix and keep it that way. Five hours of your favorite movies and late-night food deliveries. You decide to call it a night when you cannot stuff yourself with any more food. Too good to be true, right?
5. You are an absolute garbage truck in his presence
You gorge yourself with food when he is around, your belly might hang out from all the eating but you don’t break a sweat. Everything that comes at you goes down the drain. The amazing thing is he falls deeper in love with you every time he watches you stuffing a hamburger in your mouth. You aren’t afraid to eat half of the fries.
6. You can be a baby around them
You can be an absolute baby in their presence, and they love every bit of it. I literally punch him and make a run for it; he eventually catches up to me, because I am a fat cow and he tickles the hell out of me. The first time our parents saw us handing out, they couldn’t believe that we were dating. This is exactly what my mother said, I seriously cannot believe that you guys are dating’.
7. You sing songs to one another
He has a horrible voice, I mean zero talent, but I absolutely love it when he sings for me. He often sings to me at night, my sisters often make fun of me but I think it’s so romantic.
Oh, did I mention I sing for him too? The only problem is that I am worse than he is and whenever we sing together, it sounds so awful but we sing out hearts out anyway. It’s amazing to see how much we have grown as a couple because when our relationship began, I couldn’t even cough in front of him.
8. You guys are brutally honest
I mean ‘they will rip your skin off of your flesh’ kind of honest. You say things the way they are, you aren’t afraid to sugarcoat them because you know your partner will never bring you harm. Your level of trust has class.
9. You practically share homes
You have walked into each other’s houses so many times that formalities don’t exist anymore. l walk in and ask his mother what’s for dinner if it’s something good, I definitely leave after dinner, food is love, food is life! He walked in over to my place with his report card a few days back and my mother had a look at his grades before his mother did.
