You know it’s real when your SO makes a sappy Instagram post for your birthday, essentially professing their love for you to all of the social media world. That’s exactly what Ian Somerhalder did for wife Nikki Reed on May 18.
Just weeks after tying the knot, Somerhalder wrote an emotional message for her on her special day, among other photos where he repeats how happy she makes him. The two didn’t waste any time taking their relationship to the next level, getting engaged only six months after they started dating. Whatever they do, whether it be the sweet social posts or their cute outings, it’s pretty clear the couple is head over heels.
From friendship to true love, Somerhalder and Reed are a prime example of a healthy, functioning and passionate bond. Here are six reasons why we should model our relationships after these two lovebirds:
It is so important to spend quality time with your SO, experiencing new things together and getting an adrenaline rush from doing the unexpected. It brings you closer and allows you to build lifelong memories.
Whether it’s riding their horses, going skiing for the holidays or venturing to Costa Rica for a honeymoon celebration, Somerhalder and Reed never fail to keep each other on their toes. They visit new places together and celebrate every day together by living life to the fullest.
There are two types of PDA: one, which makes everyone surrounding the couple feel nauseous and as if they are intruding, and another where it simply shows extensive amounts of love, compassion and chemistry. Somerhalder and Reed definitely enjoy some good PDA, but it is always in the correct manner.
On social media and in person, they are constantly hugging, kissing, holding each other and admiringly gazing at one another. This is true love. This is clear, physical evidence of their genuine feelings for each other, which is something we should look for.
Too often we get comfortable in a relationship, or even a marriage, and we stop trying to impress our SO. The problem is in order to keep your bond blossoming and growing stronger, you have to try and make each day as exciting as the first one was. Our model couple here does a great job of keeping the flame alive by going on dates on a consistent basis.
They go get coffee, go out to eat and, best of all, they attend events together. Getting dressed up and feeling like there is still a lot of effort being put in by your SO to make you happy and make you feel special will definitely make for a better relationship.
Something that should exist in your relationship no matter what the circumstances is encouraging each other to be healthy and live well. Part of that is exercising and eating correctly, just like these lovebirds do.
Maybe they don’t love working out, but Somerhalder and Reed definitely love to workout together. It’s just another thing they can do that allows them to spend quality time while also living a healthy lifestyle. Find something fun and fitness related to do with your SO, like rollerblading or even going on afternoon walks.
We think it’s adorable that Somerhalder and Reed not only have the same career, but they also have both played mischievous vampires on the big screen. On top of that, they dress the same in real life and are always seen smiling, wearing funky jewelry and little hats. Talk about twins.
Obviously opposites do attract to a certain extent, but for this couple, they are one in the same in terms of style and taste. It’s always good to have a big aspect of your life like your career goals in common with your SO, that way they can relate to you better and understand when you have troubles in the workplace.
At the end of the day, you relationship should not be a burden and it shouldn’t be putting extra stress on your life. Like Somerhalder and Reed do, you should strive to celebrate life together and enjoy every little moment you share.
For this couple, one of their biggest priorities is making sure there is plenty of love and happiness to go around — and not even just between the two of them. They also both strive to help others and bring joy to those in need, which makes their love even stronger. They are just too perfect for words.
