Relationship goals and love go hand-in-hand when the bond is established on a foundation of trust, loyalty, and honesty.
But we often find ourselves stuck in situations and dilemmas of relationships that the actual spark in it fades away eventually.
Life is full of ups and downs, and so are the relationships at different phases of our lives. The phase of the 20s is considered as the best time for it, especially in the case of a serious relationship. Don’t you also think so?
Certainly, there are pros and cons of it, but the pros are so much in number that it overshadows the cons.
Here’s to a quick check of 20 such benefits, that is bound to work out if you are in a healthy and serious relationship in your 20s.
1. With experience comes maturity.
Age can’t always be the parameter to measure maturity. Despite that, in our teenage lives, we had come across a lot of experiences which have eventually shaped our minds in a more mature way. This acts as a spice to our 20s relationships. Maturity weaves the bond of understanding between the couple and acts as a shield to misunderstandings and unnecessary fights.
2. Explore Yourself.
With the onset of adulthood, we are subjected to a lot of freedoms both physically and mentally. This helps us in better understanding of ourselves and our needs. This will eventually help you to recognize your expectations from a relationship and this will also, help you in understanding your partner.
In your 20s, it is expected that you will start having your income. By that time, if you are in a serious relationship, the expenses of gifts and dates can be fulfilled by you and your partner only, unlike the teenage days when we had to depend on our parents for the bare minimum.
4.Have your space, please!
With age and experiences, we are conditioned to a lot of responsibilities. During this time, you will look for your own time and if it’s a serious and healthy relationship, it will always allow you with your space. Love and relationships are meant to free you, not to cage you.
5.Work is important too!
Relationships during this phase help to concentrate on the individual works because people become more aware of their living with age and responsibilities.
By this age, you have perhaps met different types of people which has given you enough experience to choose the right person.
7.No more flings.
Say goodbye to your teenage infatuations and flings because now, you will get to connect more genuinely. Because back then, due to the influence of different hormones, we often would be seen flinging around casually which is unlikely to happen this time. We tend to get sincere with time about our relationships.
8.Handling family issues.
With age, family issues keep on increasing and this time, your partner can come to your rescue, especially with emotional support and advice. Your partner can be your best friend plus guide at the same time.
9.Take up the responsibility.
With serious relationships, people get the taste of actual responsibilities which eventually train them to be better and responsible human beings as well.
10.Being a hardcore decisive.
By this age, we all more or less, start making our own decisions. So, building a healthy relationship with your partner and choosing the right partner is quite much your decision along with your partner's. No third person!
11.Be each other’s comfort place.
Handling the difficulties at the workplace and family issues seems to be tough at times altogether. At this time, having your partner’s shoulder to lay your heavy head-on is a blessing. That feels like heaven!
12.Best Friends Forever.
Be each other’s best friends first. Because friendship is the foundation of any relationship. In our 20s, we come across a lot of fake people and we tend to lose our “friends”. So you should make sure that you both are best friends of each other, which eventually spices up the relationship.
13.Say Goodbye to your loneliness.
People tend to feel lonely at this time due to their failed teenage relationships or friendships. A serious and healthy relationship will no doubt, help them get rid of that loneliness. Your partner will play the role of a therapist then. Mark my words!
14.Perks of Living together.
Couples at this time get financially independent. Therefore, they are more likely to live together before they are planning to get married. This live-in relationship helps in creating better understanding and bonding between the couple.
15.No conflicts between modern-day dating and career.
When you are into a serious relationship at this time, you will get the time to focus on your career instead of casual modern-day dating. A good grip on your career will eventually help you in your future plans with your partner.
16.Adieu to your past insecurities.
A healthy and serious relationship in your 20s will definitely help you to get rid of your teenage or childhood insecurities, in the presence of a best friend cum genuine life partner.
17.More the intimacy, more the Euphoria.
In the 20s, people tend to get physically intimate with their partners which eventually improves their mental health as well as reproductive health. The happiness keeps on increasing and this is absolutely the perfect age for that. Also, this helps both of them to explore each other more.
18.Keep on exploring together.
With financial independence and accompaniment of your partner, exploring each place, each food, and each lifestyle becomes easier and more adventurous. And if you both love traveling and food, then it’s an additional advantage. After all, sharing is caring!
19.Be a part of each other’s growth.
With the onset of your 20s phase, comes a lot of ups and downs through which we tend to learn and grow. If at this time, you have a genuine life partner by your side, your growth doubles up with theirs.
20.Coming back to HOME.
A genuine relationship is bound to give you that feeling of being at HOME at the end of the day. Coming back to your home, and sharing household works with your partner will certainly ease each other’s loads. This also helps in saving our valuable time. And of course, this acts like a cheery on the top of a cake.
Every relationship is unique in its own way. Still, I hope that if you are going through any problem or dilemma, then keeping these benefits in mind will help you and motivate you to overcome those difficulties.
Also, all the relationships in this world aren’t meant to stay forever. Being a part of each other’s growth and accepting the reality is what makes it unique.
Life is unpredictable so don’t lose hope-
Because, “No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together.” Just be kind to yourself and your partner with absolute loyalty and honesty. Take care of your partner and that of yourself too. And most importantly, live and let others live.
By the way, don’t forget the 3 Ls - LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH, and repeat!
