On May 1, , I will have been dating my boyfriend for 2 full years. Within that time span, I've noticed that not only have we changed as people but the dynamic of our relationship has also changed drastically. Although our relationship started off strong, I do think that things only get better with time and that definitely applies to relationships. Some things have changed completely while some things remain the same and only get better and better. So, in my experience, here are 7 things that happen or have happened when your relationship reaches the 2-year mark. From bodily noises to honest opinions about family, friends, and outfits, you no longer hold back how you feel. They know about that shirt you love and their friend of theirs that you don't necessarily like and there are no hard feelings.
Or just something that has to happen, if the relationship isn't destined for forever?
Well, as it turns out, there are actual statistics to which we can look to answer this question. Sociologist Michael Rosenfeld tracked more than 3, people since to find out what happens to relationships over time. He tracked married and unmarried straight and gay couples to peek at what time does to partnerships, and it looks as though the chances for breakup come way down after a few years. By five years in, most couples only had a 20 percent breakup rate, and by 10, they come down even more.
A relationship takes teamwork and that's exactly how you solve things.
Cole Sprouse & Lili Reinhart Break Up After 2 Years Of Dating
I've never been a big reality show lover though all bets are off for "The Bachelor," of course. The only other exception I'll make is for food shows. I've been watching Gordon Ramsay curse at contestants on "Hell's Kitchen" since before I was old enough to know any four-letter words or how to turn on a microwave. As the years have passed, I've made an attempt at replicating some of the drool-worthy dishes I've seen on TV, and now that cooking is the primary option during quarantine, I've been bingeing in every sense of the word.
These Are The Real Reasons Your Long-Term Boyfriend Hasn't Proposed Yet
Coming from an Indian family, cooking for loved ones and gathering at the dinner table has always been a big deal, as is for most of my friends who are also children of immigrants.
But now, more than ever, everyone is gathering around food with their loved ones - whether on FaceTime or IRL - and when we're not eating, it's likely we're watching other people who are, admittedly, much better at putting together a professional, gorgeous meal on screen than we could ever be.
That said, nearly everyone has a quarantine buddy who's picked up cooking or bingeing cooking shows as their latest hobby. Whether that's you or them, these are the recipes from our favorite Netflix food shows that already have us drooling over our screens.
It consumes the storyline as much as anything else does, they're both ridiculously good looking, and the season ends with the two in quite a predicament.
That said, there is an argument that the real love story being told on the show is that of Pope and Kiara. I wouldn't describe myself as a workout fiend you'll never see me signing up for boot camp class earlier than 10 a. As much as I love the feeling of putting on a new set of workout gear, I cringe at the thought of dropping tons of money on clothes I plan on sweating buckets in.
Unlike the model who frequents the treadmill next to me, after a good workout, my clothes and hair, and socks are typically soaked and dying to jump in the laundry the second I get home.
If I'm planning on sweating that much and washing those clothes frequently, they have to be sweat-wicking, easy to move in, supportive of my curves, and generally inexpensive. No matter whether you're virtually dating or not, if you're single in quarantinechances are you need a break from your dating life or lack thereof. If that's the case, reality dating shows are the perfect way to get your dose of "love" while feeling grateful you're still single.
Here are 11 reality TV shows worth bingeing in quarantine if you're trying to escape your dating reality. While there are a lot of open-ended questions leading us to believe that there will be a season three of "Dead to Me" nothing has been confirmed. This season aired on Friday and is ranked at number one on Netflix's top trending in the world, so let's hope that Netflix comes through with a third season renewal.

Some guys don't.
If you're wondering why that could be, check out what these 10 guys confess are the reasons why they haven't asked their long-term girlfriends to marry them. By Jen Glantz. I'm not really ready.
I've been with my girl for four years now. It seems like a really long time.
It is. But I'm not sure I'm ready to get married right now and take things to the next level.
We are both only 24 so it's weird to me that we'd be married before we could even rent a car. Why complicate things?

I've seen what marriage does to relationships. All my friends from college got married in their twenties. They all found such sweet girls and then when they got married to them, everything got stale and lame.
Marriage made things harder for them. I love my girlfriend.
We've been together sincewhich is a long time and everything, but I just don't want to ruin the good stuff we have with marriage like they did. The perfect moment will come. I want to get married but I haven't figured out how to propose.
I want that moment to be perfect.
