You just can’t understand it completely until you’ve experienced it. When you find the right person, things that once would have made you fucking insane become cute or — at the very least — tolerable. When I wake up in the morning with eyeliner crusted down my face, my boyfriend says I’m adorable.
So much of what seemed important before stops being so important. That’s the thing about finding the right person: Your tolerance level increases. He means it, and that is the best feeling in the world. It means wanting people at their absolute worst and being there to cheer them on at their best. A hot body and face might get you hard, but it won’t last.
What you thought you NEEDED in another person changes. Stuff you thought you hated in the opposite gender doesn’t bother you. Here are 9 of the things that just stop mattering when you finally find your soulmate: It’s no secret that people are truly the worst. Before I met my boyfriend, I was into clean-shaven, spiffy guys. I know it’s cheesy, but if you’ve ever been in love, you know that your partner’s looks literally don’t matter. Obviously you’re not going to suddenly be into uggos, but the more you fall for someone, the SEXIER they become. The older you get, your expectations for a partner start to shift.
The last thing you want to be is one of “those” couples.
Once you find the one, you realize that you could never be one of “those” couples.
You make each other better because you make each other stronger. This crucial difference is what sets apart a boyfriend or girlfriend from a husband or wife.
If love will teach you one thing, it is unconditional support for another person’s dreams.
Because I love him, everything about him is sexy to me.
Even in the early months of a blooming romance, you strive to keep your “me time” as regular as possible.
Your significant other may make some seriously dubious career decisions, but it your job to be there for him or her.
You can’t scoff at the impossibility of success, no matter how strongly you feel that your partner may fail. Once you meet the right person, you feel capable of anything. If you know in your heart that this is the right person, if this person makes you feel special, beautiful and loved every single day, if you wake up every single morning feeling happy, fulfilled and excited, then FUCK everyone else.
Finding the right person is a beautiful, mystifying, humbling thing. You discover that everything you thought you knew about love was wrong. You have a major chip in the game; you have something really essential to your happiness figured out. Suddenly, everything seems doable, because you know that you can conquer the challenges together. Everything about that other person will be HOT to you — and visa versa.
