Someone Perfectly Explained What Happens In A Relationship After “Butterflies” Go Away


Having ‘butterflies’ in your stomach is often seen as a classic symptom of love. When you’re in a long-term relationship, however, those ‘butterflies’ that you felt when you first met your partner might start to change. One Tumblr user, who goes by the nickname Elo, had been with her boyfriend for 5 years when she beautifully summed up how love changes and grows over time in a blog post which has now gone viral for the second time.

Whether you still have ‘butterflies’ for your significant other, or your feelings for them have evolved into something stronger, know that every relationship is different, and that whatever keeps yours together – as long as it’s healthy and safe – is perfectly normal. And just in case the suspense is killing you, yes – Elo and her boyfriend are still together and will mark their 8th anniversary this fall.

Read the touching anecdote below, find out how people are reacting to it, and tell us what you think at the end!
