For outsiders looking in, committed relationships must look really boring sometimes. I know that when my single friends post Instagram photos of the table service they’re enjoying at a nightclub, and I post an Instagram photo of eating pizza on my boyfriend’s stomach, my single friends probably feel really bad for me. But honestly, I don’t want their pity. While some people think that a lot of “boring couple behavior” is what makes a relationship fall apart, it can actually be the glue that holds it together. Newsflash: most of life’s moments are boring. And it’s just those boring moments that, if your partner can make them better, make you realize you belong together. Here are 15 examples of “boring couples behavior” that are actually pretty cool.

Playing hooky from a party to watch Netflix

I love nights when my boyfriend and I act like deviants and tell our friends we can’t come to the party because we “Have special plans…” when we’re actually sitting in bed with Netflix all cued up.

Leaving the party to go to a burrito truck

Everybody wants to leave the party to go to their favorite burrito truck–they just feel like they can’t, because they’ll miss out on something. Not when you’re in a relationship. When you’re in a relationship, at a party, you’re missing out on going to your favorite burrito truck with your favorite person.

Being hungover on Sunday 

There is no need to pretend that you still have any interest in drinking on Sunday. When you’re in a relationship, you can lay in bed and be the hungover, puffy-eyed, Dominos-ordering slobs that you feel like and nurse each other back to health.

One word texts

One word texts are not the end of communication–they are the pinnacle of it. I love text exchanges that go a little something like this: “Thai?” “W/ Walking Dead?” “And IPAs?” “Cool.”

Using the bathroom at the same time

Being in the bathroom can be boring! It’s nice to have somebody to talk to while you floss and apply acne spot treatment.

Working side by side

If you have to get work done anyway, then why not do it in bed, next to your partner, with your legs all tangled up in each other?

Sharing a pet

When you have a person you love and an animal you love, you don’t even need to speak anymore. You can just lay there, in your little love pile, with you and your partner going “Aaaw” to every single tiny movement your pet makes.

Cleaning together

Cleaning alone is boring. Cleaning with your partner and some music on, while you tease one another’s cleaning techniques, is foreplay.

Going to Costco together

Oh, don’t pretend that you don’t have the most amazing time any time you go to Costco. Between the free samples and the bulk candy and the occasional designer workout clothes on sale, you have the time of your life in there. Now add the love of your life. Boom.

Predictable sex

You may think you want new moves and positions and toys every day. But do you know what? Those take time to master. And once you master those, you’ll probably just start repeating them, too! Because knowing how to achieve orgasm in under 4 minutes is awesome. Then you can get onto Netflix and your burritos.

Having him dye your hair

If you think it kills the “mystery” of how you get those highlights by having your partner put them in, it doesn’t. He knows you don’t really have auburn streaks in your hair. And now you have somebody who can apply dye to that back part of your head that you always mess up. That’s love.

Cutting his hair

Since he helped you with your hair, you can help him with his! Of course, you’d never let him trim your do. Women’s hair is far more complicated. But you can give him a buzz cut. It’s kind of fun.

Complaining about having to exercise

I never love my boyfriend more than when we commiserate over
having to go to the gym. Then we give each other excuses as to why we don’t need to go. Then we go, “Ugh! Let’s just go together and get it over with.”

Hating the same people

You don’t hate them for the sake of gossiping–but talking with your partner about people you don’t like confirms that you have the same values. You probably hate them for all the same reasons. Aw!

Justifying your junk food

There’s nothing like a boyfriend to tell you, “Yeah. You can eat that pizza. We haven’t had pizza in, like, two weeks, so you’re good.” And there’s nothing like a girlfriend to say, “And you should eat that full rack of ribs. It’s protein–ya know? And barbecue sauce is basically a vegetable.”
