26 Differences Between 'Single You' And 'Girlfriend You'

By

Ladies, can you honestly say nothing about you changes when you get a boyfriend? No? I didn’t think so.

It’s OK! We all change when we get comfortable in a relationship. It’s just the way of the world. There’s nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle choices and routine once you get cozy with your bae.

You’re not giving up your independence just because you’re not completely independent anymore.

It’s wonderful to fall in love. Enjoy it.

I mean there are definitely those girls: The ones who become totally obsessed with their boyfriends and fall off the face of the earth, never to be heard from again.

Just because you have an SO doesn’t mean you have to go MIA from your friend group. That, my friend, is not a healthy way to have a relationship.

It’s fabulous when you find someone you love, but don’t let the fact that you’re off the market take over your identity. Please. Seriously.

With that being said, love does change you, and the differences between single you and girlfriend you are pretty extreme.

When you once got turnt up to hit the club in a bandage dress, you’re now more excited to snuggle up with your boo and a documentary on Netflix.

When you once were terrified of commitment, you’re now comfortably sailing along the seas of monogamy. Where you once took a bottle of wine to the face by yourself… oh wait.

You definitely still take a bottle of wine to the face, regardless of your relationship status. Anyways...

Things just shift around when you let another person become a part of your world. You’re not running around looking for the next bar or the next hookup; you’ve already found what you’re looking for.
