We all know what it's like to be in a relationship. The highs, the lows, the fights, the making up. It's a roller coaster ride.

Here's our take on expectation versus reality when it comes to being in a relationship.

1. The jealousy factor

Expectation: I'm not the crazy jealous type. I'm easy, breezy.

Reality: Who the hell is he texting now?

2. The work / friends / relationship balance

Expectation: I will never be one of those people who falls off the face of the planet when they get intoa relationship. I hate those people.

Reality: You haven't seen any of your friends for six weeks. You haven't been home for the weekend for several months. And you've forgotten what your flatmates look like.

3. When your other half goes away for the weekend

Expectation: Finally! A weekend all to yourself. There are friends and Kardashians to be caught up with, shops to be visited and an absolute mountain of laundry to be done.

Reality: You're a little bit lonely. When does he get home again?

4. The money situation

Reality: You're bound to save a few shekels once you shack up with someone.

Expectation: Halving your rent = more money saved than you could have possibly imagined.

5. Complimenting each other

Expectation: Romantic, sweeping gestures.

Reality:
That's a long list.

6. The communication

Expectation: I saw him this morning. I don't need to talk to him today.

Reality: He's online. There are two ticks blue ticks after my message. Why the hell hasn't he replied? Is he dead?

7. The spooning

Expectation: All of the snuggles all night.

Reality: Personal space required. All of the personal space.
