So here is a list of things you should actually try to accomplish rather than going out of your way to live out a fairytale (which isn’t happening any way);
1. Staying in instead of going out, because as exciting as it may be out there, it won’t be as private or comfortable as your own place. Not that you’re slacking, but it’s a nice change of pace.
2. Having your friends refer to you as a couple/team, rather than separate individuals.
3. Becoming the first-person-to-contact, when someone from their family or friends fail to get in touch with them. They all acknowledge how tight you two are, and that they’d be with you. Even if they’re not with you, you’re expected to know where they’d be better than anyone else.
4. Making the family group on your SO’s relatives’ phones. That should make you feel like a part of the family.
5. Preparing a meal together. Doing every little step together, from deciding on a dish, to actually making it, and then of course having it.
6. If there are leftovers from your rendezvous, you look forward to reliving the whole night all over again.
7. Being comfortably ill around them. You don’t feel ashamed or apologetic of how some virus literally brought you to your worst. You expect them to understand that you can’t help your unpleasant (to say the least) condition.
8. Making sure that they’re comfortable when they fall sick, and nursing them back to health, without any complains.
