Whenever I want to feel happy about being in my 40s, r/relationships is where I go.

This particular reply comes from a question “my boyfriend doesn’t allow me to read romance novels, what should I do?”

It is AMAZING to be old enough that the answer to that is just obvious🚮

“Relationships are hard work” yeah but that hard work is stuff like “listening,” not stuff like “giving up your hobbies”

I put up with so much questionable shit in my 20s and 30s. Sigh.
