As much fun as it is to take Disney vacations and throw parties with your friends, that’s not what most of your relationship is going to entail. Most of the time, you’re going to be inside. Most of the time, it’s just going to be the two of you.
That’s why you need to find someone that makes the mundane fun. Someone that makes a trip to the grocery store feel like an adventure. Someone that can turn the most boring day into an exciting one.
Date the boy that you’re counting down the hours to see, even though you don’t have any plans. Even though you’re probably going to end up sitting on the couch, munching on whatever snacks you can find inside of the cabinets while Netflix plays on the television.
Date the boy that makes you think staying in and drinking beer is just as much fun as going out to the clubs and taking shots. The boy that makes you think that cuddling on the couch and watching a movie you’ve seen a million times before is just as good as fighting through crowds during a premiere in IMAX.
Date the boy that takes away your FOMO. The boy that is always willing to go out with you and your friends if you ask — but is also okay when you say that you’re tired, that you’re feeling lazy, that that you would rather stay in your pajamas and hang out with only him.
Date the boy that you’re excited to sit down with and talk to about everything, even if it’s not all that interesting — about what happened at work, about the book you just read with a shitty ending, about the stories that your friends told you the other night when you went out for drinks.
Date the boy that you can sit in silence with, but feel still comfortable, because your hand is inside of his and your head is on his shoulder. Because you feel like you’re exactly where you’re meant to be.
Date the boy that loves spending time with you one-on-one, even if there’s no sex involved. Even if you’re sick or on your period or in the worst mood of your life. The boy that doesn’t need to see you naked to remember how much he loves you.
Date the boy that gives you a reason to laugh over the stupidest things, the boy that encourages you to tell embarrassing jokes, the boy that brings out a side of you that hasn’t been showed since you were a kid.
Date the boy that makes you say, I had such a good weekend, even if you didn’t leave the house at all that weekend. Even if you barely did anything at all.
Date the boy that you can be bored with, because with him, boring is still actually kind of fun.
