||My task today is to defend the much-maligned coupled life.
Now, much to the disappointment of my girlfriend, I'm not going to talk about all the sweet things, such as how great it is to be dating my best friend or knowing that someone is always going to be there for me. I mean, sure, all that stuff is true. But nobody wants to read my sonnets and love poems. Instead, I'm going to present the entirely selfish reasons why it rocks to be in a long-term relationship.
