1. You Go Out More

When you and your partner completely trust each other, there is nothing holding you back from going out with the girls or the guys. If anything, you both encourage it. There is no fear about one or the other going out for a night of drinking and dancing because you know you will both come home to each other at the end of the night.

2. You Move On

When you have someone that supports you and makes you a better you, there is no need to look to the past anymore. Whatever crazy relationship drama you once had no longer matters. You couldn’t care less about what so and so is up to anymore. Honestly, you wish them nothing but the best because you hope everyone finds a love like the one you have now.

3. You Share More Kindness

Your person makes you so happy, you just want to share it with everyone around you. You are more willing to do little things for your friends that you know will make them smile. You hold that door open for the person walking in the store behind you or “pay it forward” at the coffee shop because why not? It may make someone’s day a little better like your significant other makes every day a little better for you.

4. You Are More Intimate With Others

Unhealthy or unhappy relationships can make you feel self-conscious, meek, and unwanted. But when the person you love gives you the confidence to love the skin you’re in, you finally feel comfortable getting close to others. All of the sudden you become a hugger and just enjoy the close company of others because you want to share your new found confidence with those around you.

5. You Do Things Out of Your Comfort Zone

You never in a thousand years thought you would do that crazy 20-mile hike with beautiful views but now you are because you have someone that makes you believe you are invisible. That job you never thought you’d even bother applying for because you didn’t think you were qualified? Yeah, now you’re killing it as the new VP of Such and Such Company because your partner pushed you to go for it.

6. You Strive for Balance in All Facets of Life

You make time to ensure that your own mental health is strong because you want to be strong for them. You make time for yourself, for your family, for your friends, for work, because you are the best you when everything is in line. And you want to be the best you for each other.

7. You Laugh More

You and your boo have a million little inside jokes. You guys could laugh for hours over nonsensical things that no one else would understand. So everything else becomes funny too. They say laughter is the best medicine and laughing with your significant others brings more laughs with everyone around you.

8. You Are at Peace

Simply put, you are HAPPY. You are so at peace with how everything around you is working out, you quietly do what you can to keep it that way. And you do everything in your power to avoid messy or hostile situations like the plague. TC mark
