Common Relationship Problems Happy Couples Can’t Relate To

When you’re in a happy relationship, it’s impossible to talk to most of your couple friends, because they go on rants about things you just can’t relate to. They complain so much that you’ll wonder why they’re even in relationships. It just doesn’t make sense to you. Here are a few common relationship problems that happy couples just can’t relate to:

  1. “He doesn’t help around the house.” You can’t understand this issue, because your boyfriend comes to your aid whenever you call his name. In fact, you don’t even need to ask him for his assistance, because he’ll pop up whenever he senses you’re feeling stressed.
  2. “He’s bad in bed.” You can’t complain about your sex life, because you orgasm just as often as your boyfriend does. In fact, your boyfriend goes down on you more than all of your exes put together.
  3. “We don’t want the same things.” You don’t know how your friends could date men that don’t share their dreams. You could spend hours talking to your boyfriend about the color of the drapes you’ll put in your future home.
  4. “He wastes his money.” Your boyfriend talks to you before making any big purchases. Even if he buys something you wouldn’t personally use, you don’t consider it a waste, because you know it’s going to make him happy.
  5. “He’s a liar.” You can’t remember the last time you caught your partner lying. He wouldn’t dream of fibbing to you, because he values your opinion of him.
  6. “He’s always out with his friends.” He spends plenty of time with you, so the time spent with his friends doesn’t bother you at all. You’re actually happy that he has someone to talk to about the hobbies of his that you can’t stand.
  7. “He doesn’t make enough money.” As long as your boyfriend is happy with his job, you won’t complain about how much money he makes. If you wanted more, you’d go out and make more yourself.
  8. “He flirts around.” Your boyfriend respects you too much to comment on another woman’s butt. Besides, there’s no one he’d rather be with than you, so there’s no reason for him to look around for other options.
  9. “He’s not attracted to me anymore.” You never have this fear, because your boyfriend compliments you on a daily basis. He might not say it out loud, but he tells you by the way he looks at you.
  10. “He doesn’t care about me.” Your boyfriend doesn’t wait until your birthday or Valentine’s Day to show you he cares. He shows you every single day, because he doesn’t want to lose you.
