Big-budget Hollywood movies and polished Instagram feeds might give you the impression that romantic relationships have to be perfect and only exist with cute couples. Well, they can't. And when you let go of the popular obsession with unachievable idealistic love, impossible relationship advice to you allow room for your perfectly imperfect long term relationship to blossom.

To highlight this point, Bored Panda has made some cute drawings to illustrate the differences between what's usually expected of romantic moments and their true forms. From snacking in bed to sleeping poses and beyond, the outcome of your attempt to create something special doesn't matter, it's what you make of it that does. And there's no better person to make the best of the mundane than your significant other. Scroll down to check out the expectations vs reality fun comics and fire up our other original funny comics series once you're done (21 Ways Your Life Changes From Your 20s To Your 30s, 20 Brutally Honest Comics That Show How Your Life Changes After Having Kids).

YES. My hair's literally EVERYWHERE. My bf recently told me he's happy I have so much hair, or I'd be bold by now!

The trick is to procrastinate until someone chooses out of sheer frustration...

Much worse then watching alone (the other can simply also watch later) is to continue with a computer game that you jointly played!

Nah. In a long term relationship you don't even ask; you just assume the other person farted and you go get the spray.

If she says she's cooking a pie instead of baking, you probably want to order in.

Farting isn't the end of the world. Your body has to release gas, might as well do it in good company! ;)

If you are living with someone all day long, it's impossible that you never fart in front of him or her~

Not true. I’m like four years into a relationship and I still go to the bathroom to fart. I don’t fart in front of anyone - friends, family, whatev. I just think it’s gross, like burping in someone’s face or something. Some things are just private I guess.

The reality is it's too hot for you, too cold her her, you burn yourselves on the candles, wax everywhere, the tub is too small and you are cramped up, the petals get clogged in the drain and you have to hire a plumber to fix the problem. And who gets the tap end?
