You know what they say, ‘It’s not always rainbows and butterflies’. Well, it is kind of true for relationships but not in a bad way. Whether it’s a long term relationship or marriage, all couples go through excitement and butterflies-in-the-stomach phase in the early years of courtship. But there comes a time when that excitement turns into a state of calm and the butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling turns into comfort. And there’s nothing in the world that comes close to that feeling. A Tumbr use, who goes by the nickname Elo, documented an elaborate blog post explaining how her relationship has changed for good after 5 years together. The woman shared the post online after which it went viral with thousands of people sharing their own experience with their partners. Check out her original post below.
“You stop getting butterflies when you live together,” she wrote. “Your heart no longer speeds up when you see them, but instead, everything calms down.”
