10 Commandments of Being in a Relationship in Grand Junction
Being in a relationship will show you both what you what your fundamentals are. Food, freshness, and appreciation are all necessities for me.
Everyone has things they need in a relationship and the longer you're together, the more you figure it out. After almost two years of being in a relationship, I think we can both agree on these ten commandments.
Thou Shalt Share Your Food, Forever
The days of having your own food are over. When you're in a relationship it means sharing your food forever. (Or however long you can stand to share for.)
Thou Shalt Encourage Each Other
Your partner is basically your hype man. They should definitely encourage you and tell you to keep up the amazingness.
Thou Shalt Let Your Partner Sleep In
Sleeping is a fundamental principle of life to me. As a partner, you've got to let your partner sleep in sometimes. Trust me, you don't want to be around me if I don't get enough sleep.
Thou Shall Be a Team Together
You and your partner will take on the world together. A relationship is like being on a team, you always got the other player's back.
Thou Shalt Both Contribute
Being in a relationship isn't one-sided. Two people mean twice the contributions. Whether that's money, doing work around the house, etc.
Thou Shall Keep It Fresh
Keeping it fresh in a relationship is important. It can be easy to get caught up in a routine, but it's important to break it every now and then and change it up.
Thou Shalt Have Hobbies Together
It's nice to bond with your partner. Having things you both enjoy doing makes it fun and brings you closer. A round of Call of Duty, anyone?
Thou Shalt Share, Listen, Repeat
Communication is key in a relationship. It's important to communicate and listen to each other. I'd recommend you share, listen, and repeat.
Thou Shalt Show Appreciation
It's important to show you appreciate your partner. As your partner, they need to know they're appreciated and loved. A little appreciation goes a long way.
Thou Shalt Give More Than Half
Sometimes it's not always 50/50 in a relationship. In a time of need, you give more than half to help your team out.
