11 Comics That'll Show You What Couple Goals Really Look Like
Forget about grand gestures, Catanacomics shows us what couple goals are really about! True love's about the little things
Long-term relationships - that mystical dynamic between two people for a prolonged period of time. Anyone who has ever been lucky enough to share a life with the person you love will know that relationships are not about grand gestures. Rather, it’s about those little quirks you love so much, and the ability to read your partner’s mind from their body language. Those are couple goals. The artist Catana regularly publishes sweet comics about the life she shares with her "bearded fiancé". Her Instagram account @catanacomics is followed by more than 3 million people - once you see the comics, you'll definitely know why!
#1 Distraction, please!
We all know what it means to work from home: a lot of uninterrupted time alone in front of a screen. Thanks to our partner, we have at least a little distraction and social interaction during our day! Thanks, love.
#2 The Daily Struggle
Why oh why do we have to get up in the morning? Technically, we could work while lying in bed... but that'd be a pretty unproductive day. At least we can feel bad about our non-existing morning routine with someone else.
#3 Accepting That Good Advice isn't Always Appreciated
Even though your eyes get smaller and smaller with every minute that passes, you wouldn't even think about going to bed early. Giving up precious time together for sleep?! How dare he even propose such an absurd thing.
#4 The Bathroom Mystery
Does our significant other really think that we spend so much time in the bathroom for ourselves? Sure, the shower singing is for us, but the shaving, the endless shaving is for ... also us. And a little bit for them.
#5 Sharing is Caring
To be honest, I never understood couples who share one blanket. It's a recipe for disaster. There it is, I said it.
#6 The Business Proposal
Sometimes you have to get creative to introduce new habits into a relationship. How about coming up with an elaborate business plan to convince your partner of having breakfast for dinner?
#7 When People Assume You're Already Married
At one point, some couples in long-term relationships take the next step and get married. Sometimes, a couple gets a taste of what it must feel like even before wedding vows are exchanged. It feels magical and wifely.
#8 When Patience is not Your Strong Suit
Why would he tell you that he has a surprise for you when he can't give it to you right away? Some people just don't make sense.
#9 When Pets Have a Favorite
Breaks my heart every time my cat prefers to sleep on my partner's chest. I feed you, you ungrateful, fluffy love of my life!
#10 I Love Existing With You
Being in a long-term relationship does not mean that every day has to be very special or active - sometimes it's the nicest things of all to just be together. Being me and being you but being in one and the same room!
#11 When You're Stressed all the Time
When he can deduce how stressed you are from the amount of online shopping you've committed over the past few days. It's so tempting and a welcome distraction of the busyness of the day, sorry!
