6. Don’t fucking talk about periods.
It doesn’t matter how “sure” we are that our partner is on edge because she’s menstruating. Or gassy. Or bloated. Just leave it alone. We should just listen and agree to anything our partner says about their period. The odds that we’ll accidentally say something wildly offensive about periods is just too great.
7. The couple that binge-watches together stays together.
Your shows are sacred. If either partner watches a show without the other present, that is a breach of trust. It is punishable by relinquishing control of the Netflix queue for a week or more.
8. Never eat the last of the good food.
If you’ve got some quality snacks in the cupboard, make sure you’re not the one to finish them off. This is just a smart diplomatic maneuver.
9. She will require multiple blankets.
The more blankets you have, the less likely it is that she will steal all of them while you sleep, or that you will steal all of them and your partner will be mad at you the next morning.
10. There’s really no need to comment on her makeup.
Because she’s not putting it on for you, anyway. Just observe, enjoy, and let her have fun with it because she knows you have no damn clue what the difference between contouring and highlighting is.
