February Flames & Friendships | Pro's & Con's of a relationship (light-hearted)

Hello my leaves, how are you today?

This post is number 100!! And to mark it a little more I've just hit 6,000 views :) I can't thank you guys enough! This blog started as a little something and I can't believe where we're at :) I know it's not the big leagues but it still makes me happy!

Anyway, to the post!

Today I wanted to talk about the pro's and con's of relationships. Valentine's Day is looming and I don't want you to feel like you have to be seeking a relationship or accepting the first person to ask. So, I've divised a few little (not to be taken too seriously) things to note prior to making your decision. This post is to be taken lightly and not as if I'm a guru ^^,



1. Bed

Pro's: Portable heater to help warm the bed.
Extra pair of hands to help strip and make the bed.
Someone available to hug and snug at any time (unless they're asleep, then it's at your own risk).

Con's: Portable heater when you're too hot already.
Less space in the bed.
Duvet stealers!
Less choice in which bed covers you choose.

2. Food

Pro's: Extra person to help cook (or cook for you).
Help with the food bill.
No needing to work out how to 'downsize' measurements to one portion.
Someone to eat out with and not have the awkward 'table for 1' scenario.

Con's: Another set of taste buds to account for.
Someone else to persuade you to get takeaways...

3. TV

Pro's: Someone to act as cushion for scary films.
More likely to watch a wider variety of programmes.
Two sets of funds = bigger TV/ satellite?

Con's: arguments over who gets to watch and who has to record their show.
Games console time.
Endless complaints of you watching drivel when they want to watch something.

4. Company

Pro's: Someone there to cheer you up / give a hug when you're down.
Little treats such as breakfast in bed / flowers.
Help raising pets / children.
Personal cheerleader when they know how hard you've worked to achieve something (also your motivator when you want to achieve something).
Someone to share common interests with.
Someone to have private jokes with.
Someone to dance with in the rain and other spur of the moment times.
Someone to play games with e.g. pool, xbox, board games, cards.

Con's: The feeling that you're leaving part of you at home when you go out with other people.
They see every side of you.
That point where it's comfortable to have body functions in company e.g. wind, shaving, toilet...
Less opportunity to have time to yourself, by yourself.

And there we have it! Feel free to add more in the comments, I'm sure I haven't covered everything! Make sure to try and have a pro for every con too, let's not make this a negative spiral :)

Make your own choices!
