Pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter show couples having the time of their lives together. However, that is what they call ‘the highlights’.

All this somewhat disappears when you are in a relationship.

When you’re in a relationship, birthday presents, Christmas presents, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, dinners, dates – it all stacks up surprisingly quickly. Now what can you spend your money on? You, of course!
