33 Relationship Goals You Can Only Have When You’re An Extremely Happy Couple

At the end of the day, everyone wants this kind of love.

When it comes to #RelationshipGoals, a lot of people think about unattainable grand gestures and things that don’t seem realistic. You see photos on Instagram of girls coming home to thousands of red roses, or a surprise vacation around the world, but to us — that isn’t our definition of what it means to be in a relationship that truly inspires us. So, here are 33 relationship goals that we hope to experience one day when we find someone who loves us the way we have always dreamed of being loved.

1. Teaching him how to paint your nails so you don’t have to leave bed to get a pedicure. Mainly just never leaving bed for anything.

2. Showering together so you can wash all your favorite parts of each other.

3. Spending an entire road trip cramped in the back of someone’s car, and not caring because you get to be together.

4. Wearing complimentary outfits. Collecting clothes and decor with your nickname. Having your nickname for each other be ‘King’ and ‘Queen.’

10. Being so inspired by your love that you write songs about each other.

11. Sleeping in the back of your SVU while going on road trips and adventures together.

12. Not even caring how you look when you take silly couple selfies together because you both always look so happy.
