My BF and I had been dating for about two years when we were invited on a weekend getaway with a couple we’d recently befriended. The trip started out great, but after witnessing our friends’ relationship up close and personal, I started to question if we were as happy together as I thought we were.
1. SHE LOOKED AT HIM LIKE HE WAS THE CENTER OF HER UNIVERSE.
We decided to drive up to our weekend spot, a beach house that was about five hours away from the city. On our way there, I noticed the look that the girl would give her BF. Her eyes would soften every time she glanced in his direction. I knew that look—it’s the “I’m crazy about you” look. I used to have that look for my BF too, but that was a long time ago.
2. THEY ALWAYS SEEMED LIKE THEY WERE HAVING SO MUCH FUN TOGETHER.
Sometimes you just can’t help but compare yourself to other couples, especially when you realize how much fun they’re having together and how much you’re not having with your own partner. We stopped at a roadside restaurant to grab some lunch and the guy literally carried his GF on his back from the car with his eyes closed while the GF directed him. He ran into a tree and then a pole and almost fell up the stairs but they managed to reach their destination, laughing hystericallythe whole time. My BF and I followed, awkwardly smiling. He said they were crazy and I nodded in agreement, but I kinda wished we could be like that sometimes too.
