5 relationship things you shouldn’t stress about

1. He never posts Facebook statuses on your anniversary. But he tells you he loves you to your face all the time. So do all your second cousins really need to know that “two years ago today, [he] married his best friend”?

2. He hasn’t perfected the art of gift giving. He’s not the type to create a scavenger hunt that ends in a puppy wearing a diamond ring on its collar? Rude! But there’s no shame in saving yourselves some grief and e-mailing him a link to the Marc Jacobs bag you really want for your b-day.

3. Sometimes you totally go to bed angry. It’s okay to call bullshit on this old-school love law. Sometimes sleeping on it and waking up with a fresh perspective is a lot better than bickering until 2 a.m. on a work night.

4. You occasionally just “do your own thing” for dinner. No one feels like going full Ina Garten after a long day, so he nukes a Hot Pocket, and an hour later, you eat leftover soup? Technically, you’re not eating alone. You’re eating alone…together in the same apartment.

5. You don’t like any of the same movies. Or TV shows. You’re considering Game of Thrones cosplay; he has no idea what the House Baratheon is. No worries, you’re not doomed, because you’re both big fans of something way more important: Sunday-night sex.
