Let’s be honest, becoming emotionally invested in a particular couple from a show is part of the TV show watching experience. We root for the couples we love, especially when we see ourselves in them, and just because their relationships aren’t real doesn’t mean we can’t still learn from them. From the wildly dysfunctional couples to the on-again, off-again couples, to the couples who are just straight up #relationshipgoals, here are some lessons I’ve learned from ten of TV’s favourite twosomes.
Pet peeves. Mood swings. Bad days. We all have them, especially in relationships, and sometimes it’s just too easy to let something seemingly meaningless turn into the.biggest.deal.
We’ve all been there…that gloomy, stagnant, sometimes sad place inside our minds, where we feel irritated, unappreciated, and bored.
Here’s how to navigate and walk away from the different types of relationships in your life that are turning you off.
The decision to co-habitate with your partner is a serious milestone in the relationship—not something to be treated casually or done hastily and spontaneously. Moving in together indicates that you’re both committed to each other, and are heading in the direction of permanence or even marriage.

Traditionally, proposals have consisted of a man getting permission from his girlfriend’s father before getting down on one knee. Today, though, modern couples are getting creative when popping the big question. From theatrical productions like flash mobs to low-key conversations, here’s how Millennials are approaching engagements.
Those early stages of a relationship are filled with new experiences. From learning about one another’s childhood to meeting your respective families, to sharing timid first kisses or exchanging passionate “I love you’s,” each milestone will send your hearts racing with excitement, passion, butterflies and romance. But one right-of-passage takes that feeling of togetherness to an entirely different level—your first getaway as a couple.
Living together is fun and exciting, but it can also be stressful. Merging your life with someone else’s puts a lot of pressure on both of you. If you’ve always been messy and your partner is a exceptionally clean, suddenly one of you is always annoyed.
Instead of letting these typical cohabitation issues get in the way of your relationship, use services to relieve some of the stress.
When it comes to love and lust, things are simple (well not really, but we’ll pretend they are for a second and try to simplify both by carefully inspecting their aspects). Lust is the animal instinct we feel towards someone, the feeling focused on the physical attraction and love is the sum of all your partner’s qualities that you adore, even when you don’t.
