No matter how healthy, all relationships are full of ups and downs. One minute you're cuddling and eating Chinese food, the next you're squabbling over whose turn it is to do the dishes. Despite how much your partner may irritate you at times, it's perfectly natural to butt heads, as long as you're both calm, respectful, and communicative when disagreements arrive. Every relationship is different, but if you're in an LTR, you'll know that there are things every couple understands.
Having a partner to share life with is pretty fun: You always have someone to lounge with, snack with, laugh with, and cry with. While there are definitely perks of being single, it's nevertheless a cool experience to be one half of a power couple, knowing there's always going to be someone (aside from friends and family) to support you.
In a healthy relationship, the two of you can get on each other's nerves without causing any lasting damage. When there's no jealousy, mistrust, or dishonesty between the two of you, it makes it easier to let go of the little day-to-day things that cause minor rifts. Challenge yourself to be the definition of #RelationshipGoals, and give your partner an extra hug even if he or she is pissing you off.
