There are so many reasons we enjoy being in a relationship. Some are just human nature: We all want to make strong connections with other people and we want to feel the excitement of interacting with someone personality meshes well with our own. Being in a relationship that clicks can be an amazing feeling, but we might not always realize why. Some of the most simple aspects of being in a relationship are the best parts. Here are five simple pleasures that we enjoy when being in a relationship.

Someone To Talk To

Your partner is someone that you feel comfortable talking to. Whether you want to chat about your day, or have a discussion about a larger issue, they are there to listen. A good partner never makes you feel like you’re being judged or like they don’t care about what you have to say. They might not always like what you have to say, but you can still talk to them freely because you know they will always be there for you.

You Can Be Yourself

It’s such a great feeling to be able to be exactly the person you are around your partner without the fear of judgment or abandonment. You can show your serious side along with your silly side and your sensitive side. Your partner gets to see it all, and they’re glad to see it because they appreciate who you are. This intimacy allows you to express all the different parts of your personality.

Small Surprises

Small surprises can brighten your day. Whether your love surprises you at work with a cup of coffee or a candlelit dinner ready when you come home from a long day, the idea that they simply thought of you can mean the world.

Sharing New Experiences

Building a relationship is all about the experiences that you share together, and often we decide to explore new things as a couple. Maybe you decide to try rock-climbing for the first time together, or go see your favorite artist live in concert. Whatever the activity, the fact that you are sharing this time together helps to strengthen your bond.

Having a Best Friend

The best simple pleasure of being in a relationship is having a best friend in your partner. Your partner knows you well, and they appreciate you for who you are. They listen to what you have to say and in turn you do the same for them. You two build this relationship together and naturally you two do find a best friend in each other. This can be a great feeling.

Ultimately, for whatever the reason, we all love being in a relationship and creating a strong bond with someone. As humans we enjoy connections like the ones we find in our partners. While there are many reasons to love the relationship you are in, be sure to appreciate the simple pleasures within.
