Swiped Right, Now It’s For Life: 45 Comics Every Couple Can Relate To

By Jhoana C

If you’re a fan of illustrations and use Instagram regularly, you definitely have come across Leo and Lily, the creators of one of the most popular comics today, Amity Comics. Couples can relate to these comics because they explore the ins and outs of everyday life in a relationship. The purpose of Amity Comics is to relay the message of affection and friendship, not just romantic love between two people. Lily well crafts all illustrations while Leo manages the other aspects. Drawing has always been one of Lily’s greatest passions. She had the idea from Leo to create their comics because they remember reading and enjoying them so much as children. We are happy that they found this outlet to share their story because we have fallen in love with this couple’s journey.

Someone To Miss Terribly

It’s always amazing when you have the chance to spend time with the person you love. This is especially true of couples who are in long-distance relationships because it can often be a long time until they will see one another again.

Even if you don’t live in different cities or continents, being away from your beloved makes you feel an array of emotions. Throughout your day, you may find yourself missing them terribly and wish that they will materialize in front of you. When you get to see them again, you want to hug them tight.

Someone To Be Yourself With

Indeed, couples act differently when they are alone with each other compared to when they are out in public with other people. I know a few people who are guilty of this, and you can raise your hands if you feel the same way.

In this illustration, you see the couple not being overly talkative with other people compared to how they are able to express themselves with each other. See just how casual and natural conversations come when they are with each other?

Someone To Always Be Next To

Regardless of how many, how soft, and how expensive your pillows are at home, nothing beats the feeling of cuddling, sleeping on, and just being next to the person you love. Their bodies and their scent make all the difference.

You find yourself instantly happier, at ease, and content when they are next to you. It’s incredibly wonderful to wake up in the morning and look over to see your best friend laying there right beside you. Plus, when it’s time to start your day, catching a few extra minutes of sleep while cuddling into them always makes you smile.

Someone To Comfort You When You’re Scared

There aren’t many people who are excited to go to the doctor. There are even less people who enjoy to go to the doctor for any procedure, big or small. It’s always great to have someone to bluntly, although with love, get you to move past your fears.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

The great thing about being a couple is that you always have that other person who is ready to push you forward, give you courage, and nag you to do things. We love that Lily is the one supporting Leo in this one. You go, girl!

Someone To Be Next To

Just being next to the person you love, even when you’re doing nothing at all, can be delightful. There is no need to spend thousands of dollars shopping, traveling, or doing various activities with the one you love.

Sometimes, you only need a quick cuddle to pick you up on your feet again. Working from home has been difficult for everyone; however, we are grateful for those midday cuddle sessions we wouldn’t have gotten at the office.

Someone Who Always Has Your Back

If you’re part of a couple, it’s a given that you support one another, encourage each other to do better, and always be there for one another for better or for worse. Knowing that you have someone who always has your back makes a lot of difference.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Because no matter how sure you are of yourself, there will be times of uncertainty when you question all your abilities. Having someone beside you to encourage you and having someone to cheer you on during these times can help you succeed.

Someone To Annoy When You’re Bored

Having someone special in your life means there’s also someone always there for you to annoy when you have nothing else to do. When you are bored and need a break from your monotonous work-from-home routine, always find a way to bug your partner.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

The best thing about it is they can’t complain, and they have to put up with you even if they have better things to do, mainly because there’s nowhere else to go. This is why you should choose the right person, someone that you won’t piss you off even if they try to be annoying.

Someone Who Always Thinks You Look Good

Another bonus when you have someone in your life who loves you dearly is that you look great to them regardless of what time of the day it is. It doesn’t matter if you just woke up in the morning and haven’t brushed your teeth or washed your face.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t combed your hair or put some makeup on; you’ll always look good to that person. Nothing will make them change their mind or make them think otherwise. You’ll always be the apple of each other’s eyes.

Someone To Count On

If you’re alone and working from home, chances are you’d forget about your meals or order delivery to your home. But, if your beloved is with you, there will always be someone looking out for you and making sure you eat.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

You need not worry about food anymore; your partner will lovingly prepare your meals, make sure you eat on time, and even throw in a kiss or two for good measure. It’s like magic, suddenly you are full of energy, and everything is better.

Someone To Stay Home For

There’s no reason to stay at home when you live completely alone and don’t even have a pet to care for. Chances are you’d rather be out and about the city with friends or explore the local bar scene alone.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

You also won’t hurry to get home from the office, seeing as there is no one to come home to. However, if you live with the one you love, you’d always be in a hurry to get home, and vice versa, someone will stop you from leaving.

Someone To Always Buy Your Favorite Food

When you have a significant other, it cuts both ways. There is always someone to buy you your favorite food, but there will always be someone to ruin your resolve to go on a diet too. It’s challenging, but it’s also lovely at the same time.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

We don’t know how anyone can resist chocolates and pizza. We know they are not the most healthy option for us, but we’d eat them any day over a bowl of salad. Another good thing about having someone special? You’ll always have someone to grow fat with.

Someone To Snuggle With

When the person you love stays home with you, you’ll always have someone to snuggle with, doesn’t matter what time of the day it is. You can get all the cuddles you want in the morning, afternoon, and night. You will want to stop anything you’ve been doing to get in a squeeze.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Just finished sending work emails? You can cuddle. Just finished your workout? You can cuddle. Anything and everything can be an excuse to cuddle with the person you love. That’s something you can’t do in the office but something we are so grateful for.

Someone To Celebrate With

Celebrating special occasions is more fun when you have your beloved beside you. New Year’s Eve is one occasion that was designed for couples. When many people prefer to go to rambunctious parties and drink the night away, some couples prefer to stay home.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

There’s no need for over-the-top celebrations for holidays for some and their significant others. Just being together is celebration enough. It’s true that when you’re a couple, you might instead greet each other, snuggle up and go to bed together.

Someone To Drive Crazy

Although we have nothing against the hair on women’s armpits, legs, and arms, some women would prefer to have smooth and hair-free skin. To each her own, we always say. Do whatever makes you feel like the goddess that you are.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

If you have just done hair removal on your arms and legs, it can be such a pleasant feeling that you want to share it with your boyfriend. Little victories like that need to be shared because they can make a big difference in your confidence and self-esteem.

Someone To Canoodle With

Canoodling is defined as kissing and cuddling amorously, and if you’re single and you see other people engaging in it, we bet you’ll be none too pleased unless you’re genuinely happy for that couple. However, it’s a different story if you are the couple doing the canoodling.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

This is especially true if you’re just in the early stages of your relationship. All you want to do is to spend time with that person, hug them close and not want to let them go. Real-world problems such as jobs become irrelevant at the beginning of a relationship.

Someone To Share Your Hair With?

Ask men what one of the most annoying things about their wives and girlfriends is, and we bet you one of the most common answers will be that women’s hair gets everywhere. It doesn’t even matter if their wives or girlfriends have long and short hair.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

It’s the same for all women unless the woman we are talking about is bald, to begin with. Women’s hair just seems to find itself on couches, floors, pillows, beds, your clothes, and every nook and cranny you can think of.

Someone To Play Video Games With

In the year 2020, there were more than two billion video game players worldwide, and we are confident that a good fraction of those players are couples. The figure is expected to increase to 3 billion by the year 2023.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Playing video games lets you let your competitive side out, and it’s even better if you beat your boyfriend in a game he thinks he’s very good at. Although, at times, you might wonder if he just let you win because he loves you.

Someone To Exercise With

Working out or getting into shape is a big commitment, but you should exercise if you want to be a better version of yourself. However, it’s easier said than done, especially when alone. We have always been told that having an accountability partner will prevent you from giving up.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Well, if your exercise partner is your significant other, it might motivate you more to shed off the extra pounds, trim that tummy and even have plenty of fun in the process. You can even turn it into a competition of who loses the most pounds first.

Someone To Squish

If you thought that only babies had squishy cheeks, think again. When you are in love, the cheeks of the object of your desire suddenly seem as squishy as cheeks can get. Just ask people who have been in love.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

They will tell you that most of the time when they are with the person they love, the only thing they want to do is squish the other person’s cheeks. That can be annoying and uncomfortable, yes, but who would you rather have squishing your cheeks, right?

Someone To Talk To At The End Of The Day

Some days are okay and easy, but others are challenging, draining, and exhausting. Regardless of your day has been bad or good, you want someone to tell stories to, someone to talk to about your great ideas, your aspirations, and goals in life.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Knowing that there is always someone ready to listen to you and put up with your nonsense, listen to your complaints, or your corny jokes is such a reassuring feeling. Now only if you could remember what you were supposed to tell them.

Someone To Be A Burrito With

Cold weather can be a bummer, especially when there is a snowstorm and you can’t do the things you want to do and have to be locked in the house. Add to that the energy and effort it takes to shovel snow off your driveway; no fun.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Well, if things get a little overwhelming, you can always stay inside the house and find cute ways to spend time together. One way is to turn yourselves into a burrito and encourage your significant other to do the same too.

Someone Who’ll Always Think You’re The Cutest Creature On Earth

When we are in love, we see the world through rose-tinted glasses, and anyone who has ever been in love can attest to this. We are more cheerful, forgiving, patient, and just more pleasant when we are in love.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Why is this? Because love makes you happy. When you fall in love, the dopamine in your brain is active. Dopamine is a feel-good chemical that makes people more positive and more appreciative. We do need more love in this world.

Someone Who Wants You Safe And Sound

We all want our loved ones safe and sound. Sometimes we will worry so much about our significant other that we won’t sleep and function properly because we are concerned that something terrible might happen to them. So we remind them at times to always be careful.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Sometimes, we say reminders because we don’t want to sound like their parent and tell them what to do something. Nobody wants to spend time with someone bossy or worse, someone who constantly nags them, and nobody wants that quality in a person. Reminders now and then will suffice.

Someone To Be Affectionate With Even If You’re Sick

Knowing that a person dear to you is sick can bring you all sorts of worries, especially nowadays when the common flu can quickly turn into something so severe and contagious. This illustration is all sorts of cute, but we still urge you to take precautions.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Some illnesses are not contagious, and yes, you can still hug and kiss the person you love, but it’s still best to be careful. The best you can do is take good care of them when they are sick and ensure they have the proper medications and nutrition to get better quickly.

Someone To Reach Things For You

On average, men are taller than women. The average height for men, internationally, is 5 feet 9 inches. For women, the average international height is 5 feet 4 inches, so you can see that there is a significant difference between the two.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Most women can’t reach the top shelves in grocery stores, shelves at home, and many other things. Some women also can’t reach the handrails on buses and trains. But, if you have your boyfriend or husband with you, you can always lean on them.

Someone To Take Photos With

Check your phone; no cheating now, and tell us how many photos are of you and your significant other. What?! Did you find out that your significant other has ugly secret photos of you on their phone? We’re not surprised. That’s always the case when you love someone.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Why do you have so many photos of them? Because you think they are the cutest thing in the world, and you want to immortalize moments with them, regardless if they believe they don’t look flattering in the photo.

Someone To Get Angry With

No matter how much you love your SO, there are times when they get on your nerves. This is especially true after you have passed the two-year mark in your relationship and often see each other’s flaws more and more.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

What is one common flaw that couples have and want to get rid of in their partner? It is always asking others to hand things to them when that particular thing is right in front of them. We can relate to this illustration.

Someone To Celebrate Birthdays With

Ah, birthdays, celebrating another 365 days around the sun. Some people dread getting older, but some embrace aging, as well as the many life lessons that come with it. If only everyone could age like fine wine.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

But one thing that is an occupational hazard of celebrating birthdays when you have someone special is that person could start eating your cake before you even get a taste of it. We hope they at least have the decency to leave you a tiny slice.

Someone To “Borrow” Clothes From

Home organization is always easier, better, and faster when you have someone helping you with the task. Sorting out clothes into piles to be given away, piles to be thrown, and piles to be saved will free up much-needed space in your closet.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

It will also make you feel fulfilled when you finish the task. But all those things fail compared to when your SO has clothes that no longer fit them, and you find out that they not only fit you perfectly, but they also make you look like a million dollars.

Someone To Steal Food From

When you go out on dates or eat out with your SO, he orders his food, then you order yours. However, when the dishes are finally served, you regret your decision and end up taking more than a bite of his food.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

There are times when you end up switching meals because you tell him just how nice his plate looks. Having a partner means always having a person to steal food from, and they have to resign themselves to that.

Someone Who Will Stay Loyal And Faithful To You

Don’t we all wish that our companions would stay loyal and faithful to us? After all, that’s the reason why we’re in a relationship with a person. If you’re in a relationship and a guy or girl asks you for your number, it’s always flattering, but don’t get caught up in that flattery.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Despite being faithful to Lily, we love that Leo still ran home to hug her and tell her he missed her. Just the thought of another woman hitting on him shook him to his core. Way to go, Leo! We respect you!

Someone To Hug

Hugs, believe it or not, have plenty of health benefits. Hugging someone releases endorphins to the brain’s reward pathways. Being hugged and hugging someone gives you immediate feelings of pleasure and relief. This explains why we love giving and getting hugs.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

A few other benefits of hugs are improved sleep, reduced reactivity to stress, increased wellbeing and helping you fight infections. The best thing about hugs is that they don’t cost a thing. Hooray, more hugs for everyone.

Someone To Smell…Always

Our partner always seems to smell amazing, regardless of whether they have taken a shower or not. Yup, we know that last thing sounds gross, but that’s the truth. We can’t seem to get enough of their scent, and when they are away, we keep their old t-shirts to remind us of them.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Why is this? The smell of a loved one releases oxytocin, also known as the love hormone. It is the same hormone that is involved in breastfeeding and childbirth. It turns out that our brains love the smell of the people we love.

Someone To Say Sorry To With Food

Big and little arguments are expected in relationships. There will always be times when you get on each other’s nerves and annoy one another, no matter how much you try not to. It would be unnatural for couples to never fight with each other.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

The most important thing is that you say sorry to each other after your arguments. You admit your mistakes and try your very best not to do them again. It would be even better if you could also apologize to your partner with their favorite food.

Someone To Kiss All The time

Kisses, just like hugs, make you feel better, especially if you have had a long and awful day. Kissing boosts your happy hormones and has plenty of other health benefits too. It releases a cocktail of chemicals that leave you feeling good.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Kissing relieves stress, reduces anxiety, dilates your blood vessels, so your blood pressure is reduced, relieves cramps, boosts your immune system, reduces allergic response, and prevents cavities by increasing saliva production. Whew, now we have all the more reason to kiss.

Someone To Help You Choose Lipstick Shades

Some of the most common products in a woman’s beauty arsenal are foundation, powder, blush, mascara, eyebrow pencil, and lipstick. Lipstick comes in a variety of shades. As a matter of fact, there are over hundreds of different lipstick shades.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

They all might look the same to men, but they have subtle differences that must be considered because they can have a significant effect on their looks. But don’t bother asking men to choose the shade for you because they wouldn’t even know where to start.

Someone To Promise To Cook For

Being in a relationship is supposed to be giving and taking. One person just can’t keep giving, and the other person just can’t go on taking. If one person is sick, the other will help out by cooking, cleaning the house, running errands, etc.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

But we all know that no relationship is perfect, and sometimes your partner fails to do what they have promised, which can be very upsetting. A case in point is when they tell you that they will cook, but you still end up doing the cooking anyway.

Someone To Vent To

Even if you are the most excellent person in the world, you won’t please everybody. There will always be individuals who won’t like you and what you stand for. Even if you work in a tiny office with only a few employees, it’s not uncommon to have one person who doesn’t like you.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

And we’re cool with that because that’s a fact of life. What will make things better is if you have a partner with whom you can vent to. It’s always nice to have someone waiting for you at home willing to listen while you unload the day’s events.

Someone You Can’t Bear To Be Away From

When you’re in a relationship, there is always that desire to be with the other person, especially in the early stages. A day apart can feel like a year, and you just can’t wait to be next to each other again.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Even if you know they are leaving the house to go to work, there is still that desire to be with them, and so you can constantly message them throughout the day. As much as you’d like to, you can’t stay outside their office building waiting for them to finish work.

Someone To Always Think Of

When you’re in the initial stage of a relationship, you always think of your partner. Wherever you look, you see them, and there are plenty of things that remind you of them. Sometimes you ask yourself if that is normal.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

We’re here to tell you that it is. You want to be with them as much as possible, but we’re here to remind everyone that even if you have been together for several years, you should still keep the spark alive by doing the things you used to do during the early years. 

Someone Whose Love You Will Always Yearn For

The greatest gift you will ever receive is to love and to be loved in return, says the movie Moulin Rouge. True, there is nothing better than to be loved back by the person you love. It’s a feeling that not even your favorite flavor of ice cream will ever beat.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

If a kiss is the only thing it takes to get someone’s love, then we’d gladly give that person all our kisses. Hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of kisses are okay with us. It doesn’t matter if we get swollen lips after.

Someone To Share An Ice Cream With

What’s one of the best things any couple can do? Share or eat some ice cream together while people watching during summer. We even love to watch our favorite series on television together. But there’s something that tastes better than ice cream.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

Something feels better than eating ice cream, which is kissing the person you love most either on the cheeks or the lips. Tell us something beats that, and we’ll disagree with you because nothing can be better for many people and us.

Someone To Dress Up With

Dressing up, either with friends or your partner, is always an enjoyable activity. This is why Halloween has become a hit not only with children but also with adults. Many adults are participating in costume parties, especially in couples costumes.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

You get to pretend to be someone else, be it your favorite superhero, villain, or character in your favorite show. You can even dress up as your favorite pizza place. The only risk is if your partner, who’s a man, dresses up as a woman and looks better than you.

Someone Who’ll Always Look Hot In Your Eyes

The person you love will always look like a million dollars in your eyes; it doesn’t matter if they have not even brushed their teeth, combed their hair, or washed their face. In our eyes, they are the most beautiful creature on Earth.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

We might even spend some of our time just following them around, looking at them, and admiring them in an entirely non-stalker-ish way. They might wonder what we are doing or get annoyed at times, but hey, what can we say?

Someone To Eat Cake With

One of the desserts we love most is cake. You can never go wrong with it. Soft, fluffy, and flavorful, it can be baked to suit different tastes and decorated in various ways. Even Marie Antoinette was a fan of cake.

Image courtesy of amitycomics/Instagram

What can make cake taste better? Sharing that cake with the one you love and taking a break while eating to shower your partner with kisses. Kisses can amplify the flavor of the cake and trick you into thinking it’s the best thing in the world.
