(Go Down)
Always worrying about what to wear, obsessing about oral hygiene and wondering what body hair is and is not acceptable since the last time you checked are all part and parcel of the long process of looking for love.

But what about when we stop pretending to be something we’re not?

Your partner is your best friend and best friends share EVERYTHING – from that awkward developing rash to the confession that those hairs clogging the plughole didn’t come from the dog.

Has your relationship made it to that comfortable, beautiful and a little bit rank stage where anything goes?

If so, congratulations, you may have found the one!

How many of these can you tick off the ‘you guys have made it’ checklist then?

1) That putrid morning breath doesn’t send you running for the hills. In fact you’ve rather gotten used to it and you don’t even notice it anymore.

2) The revelation that girls pass flatulence is accepted. In fact you proudly have a competition after Indian takeaway night on who can drive the cat fleeing from under the covers first.

3) You can tell your other half that dinner tonight was pretty crap. And instead of throwing a stop, they’ll nod and concede that they did drop the ball on this one and won’t be producing anything along those lines next time it’s their turn to cook.

4) A conversation doesn’t need to stop when one of you needs the toilet, you can continue unhindered. The fact that it is interrupted by the odd plop sound isn’t an issue.

5) You can tell your partner that you really quite like Katie Hopkins in the Celebrity Big Brother house and they will know that that doesn’t mean you hate overweight people with ginger hair called Tyler.

6) Your partner is snoring and rolling them over is not just OK, it’s the done thing.

7) Honesty. If you feel safe giving your opinion on what your OH is wearing and escape unscathed after doing so, you’ve made it in love.

If you accept that spending time together doesn’t automatically mean wining, dining and partaking in evenings of constructed entertainment then date night can be every night. Faffing about on Twitter or having a match on FIFA is ten times better when your partner is there.

9) You don’t have to impress each other’s parents anymore. In fact, you both mutually agree on what makes the in laws a little frustrating and share knowing looks during those family events.

10) Sharing clothes is just a normal thing. I wear pink, girly socks all the time when we’re at laundry crisis point. Sometimes my wife wears boxers. So what?

11) You actually get irritated when someone asks if your OH takes sugar in their tea. Surely everyone should know this important fact off the top of their heads by now!? No, it’s just you. Because you love them.

12) You know your partner picks their nose and has done since age 11. You don’t mind, you’ll still hold their hand.

13) Your playlist is full of songs you’re embarrassed about. They won’t judge you for knowing the words to One Direction hits, they will love you for it.

14) Going to bed in old holey underwear, smelling a little unfresh and with a distinct lack of trimming does not reduce your chances of getting lucky.

15) You can eat like a pig. Only on an early date would you ever dream of eating ribs with a knife and fork. Get stuck in there.

16) Sleeping alone = no sleep. You spend every day moaning that you don’t get enough bed space and your OH hogs the duvet. But the moment you have to stay at a hotel for work, you want to sob into your pillow and your unstolen covers that there isn’t that beautiful, snoring, farting lump beside you.

17) Mutual grooming – even the yucky bits. ‘Darling, I’ve got a big spot on my back, can you sort it out?’ POP!

1 You don’t call each other ‘babe’ or ‘sexy’ anymore but have rude nicknames that no one else really understands.

19) Going out for a meal is considered pointless, expensive and takes too much energy. The venue is the couch. The meal is an order from JustEat. The entertainment is Corrie and EastEnders. The dress code is pyjamas and a duvet. BLISS.

20) Your sexual routine has become a perfectly choreographed routine with cues that you always nail. And you know exactly how long you’ve got so you can judge if you can fit it in before the pasta is overdone on the hob.

21) You have a Netflix rota which has been painstakingly organised to ensure you both have an equal say on which shows you watch.

22) You suddenly stop mid whatever you’re doing and laugh about what the hell somebody watching would think if they saw or heard you now.

23) No matter what you argue about, nor what crisis you hit, you are both comfortable that your life is shared now and you never want to be without them. This is it, you’re in it for the long haul no matter what happens. And you couldn’t be happier about it.
