The "honeymoon phase" doesn't last forever. Any relationship has disagreements, but sometimes they can be much bigger than a simple miscommunication. Sometimes they can end everything.

Whether your significant other is close to home or long distance, whether you've been dating for a couple months or several years, odds are there has been trouble in paradise.

I asked 23 millennial couples to answer three simple questions about what the biggest disagreements in their relationships were about.

1. What are the biggest disagreements you and your significant other have?

1. Him hiding which of my friends he had slept with in the past, me demanding consistent communication

2. Not talking enough

3. About how to handle conflict with others

4. Money and lack of time together due to our jobs

5. His idiot friend

6. Jealousy

7. Who gets the final say

8. Throw pillows

9. Time management and how often to see each other

10. The frequency of communication and intimacy, emotional closeness

11. Time balance, budgets, and life goals

12. Driving

13. Money, sex, health

14. He doesn't have time for me, won't make time for me

15. Drinking too much

16. Caring more about her friends than she does me

17. Social media

18. Him skipping school, him not thinking forward, sex

19. Money and time spent with others (until the VERY late hours of the night)

20. Politics

21. To have kids or not

22. Females he sees as friends but that I know are more interested in him

23. Religious ideas

Are there any reoccurring disagreements? If so, what are they about?

1. Same as above

2. My spending habits and how they are not his business, but how they still affect our relationship

3. Just about being passive and not dealing directly with the issue

4. Typically we are fighting about the way money gets spent, but also we are both overworked and stressed out when we have these arguments

5. His idiot friend

6. Certain friends

7. Many disagreements

8. Nope

9. Same as above

10. When my S.O. is disrespectful or mean, when we aren't able to spend enough time together or starting to spend too much time together, texting vs calling

11. Yes... all of the above, not initiating in the relationship and not feeling loved and cared about in the way I want

12. The balance of time together vs friends/family

13. Driving

14. Money, sex, health

15. He doesn't give me enough time because he's so focused on everything else

16. Personal motivation

17. Social media

18. Him skipping school, because I want to be with someone who is motivated

19. Yes, politics. I am left wing and he is right wing, we don't discuss politics now and we almost never argue anymore

20. To have kids or not

21. No

22. His "best friend." Who completely ignores my existence even though we've been dating for six months. She makes sure she's next to him in all group pictures, still invites him as her plus one to things, etc. But he doesn't see it as weird. "She's just awkward" is what he says when I bring up her not talking to me

23. Communication issues, trust/jealousy issues

Have you ever ended a relationship based on a disagreement? If so, what was it?

1. No

2. Yes, because of a lack of equal effort in a long distance relationship

3. I ended a relationship because the other was not taking it as seriously as I was. We had been together for about six months and still most of the time, he just wanted to hook up and he was very sketchy about some things. I told him that I was at the point of my life where (I was 21) I was ready to find someone who wanted to settle down and do life with me., not just hook up. He didn't agree, I left.

4. I have, and I will again to maintain my connection to The Boy. All else is secondary to Him

5. Yes, religious and moral differences

6. I end relationships if/when I'm not interested in being in it anymore. Sometimes that's the other person treating me poorly or sometimes when I don't want to lead the other person on

7. Never

8. Yes, my ex was still accepting his brother who was a pedophile, and I refused

9. Nope

10. Yes, for keeping around people because they are backups for if we broke up

Do any of these sound familiar? A disagreement can be about something minor or major. How the two of you choose to respond or not, though, is what dictates how it affects your relationship.

A little bump in the road is nothing new to any of us, and odds are we'll always encounter them. Know when to draw the line, know when to kiss and make up.

Valentine's Day Became My New Favorite Holiday When I Started Dating The Perfect Man

When you find someone that treats the day with the love and diligence that you deserve, you'll see just how much more meaningful it can be.

February 14th, 2018.

I finished my last class that Wednesday, excited to meet up with my boyfriend, Nick. It was our first Valentine's Day together, and I was interested to see what was in store for us. I walked towards the back of the building, and into the parking lot. That's when I saw him, all dressed up, stepping out of his car, holding a bouquet of white roses (my favorite). I can't lie. I cried happy tears. I couldn't believe that he remembered something small I said in passing. I couldn't believe that I was with someone that knew how to make me feel so special.

Nicole Osztrogonacz

After what felt like a very long car ride of me trying not to hold back more tears, Nick pulled into a parking lot near our school's chapel. I cluelessly stared at him as he pulled out a guitar out of the trunk, took my hand, and led me around to the back of the building. While we sat on the cement steps, overlooking the scenery, he serenaded me by singing "Latch" by Sam Smith. (Yes, I melted on the spot.) His singing voice is so smooth and sexy.

When we finally got back to my apartment, he handed me this adorable photo book. I could tell that it definitely took it took time and money to put it together. The gift was so personal and sentimental and it made my heart warm knowing that I had a gift I could flip through and look back at any time in the future. (To any other men in relationships: take notes!)

I can't explain to you how badly I needed to feel that kind of love. That unconditional, endless, "I'm never going anywhere" love. That "you are worth it" love. We had only been dating for about two months by the time it was Valentine's Day. It amazed me that he was willing to do so much for me so early into us dating. But everyone deserves that relationship.

Even now, almost a full year later, February 14th, 2018 is not only one of my favorite dates, but also one of my favorite days. It had a lasting impact and I think that speaks volumes about how much it meant to me. And yes, I'm thrilled for Valentine's Day 2019.

Too many people treat Valentine's Day as something obligatory. Like, here's this bear or I made a reservation for us at this restaurant. I guess it's good that they didn't forget about Valentine's Day altogether, but still, there's not enough feeling and effort put into it. Valentine's Day, just like your anniversary, is a celebration of your love.

When you find someone that treats the day with the love and diligence that you deserve, you'll see just how much more meaningful it can be. And it might even become your new favorite holiday too.

The Best New Movies And TV Shows This February To Binge-Watch With Your Boo

And if you don't have a boo—binge watch the following with pizza and wine!

There's nothing like binge-watching a movie or show while cuddling with your boo. Whether it's a rainy day, you two are homebodies, or you're just running out of Netflix shows and movies to watch, then this is the article for you. I have done extensive research straight from my bed in an effort to find the best new TV shows and movies to watch on Netflix right now and this coming month.

Here are 11 of the best movies and TV shows on Netflix to watch with your boo this February:

1. You

You can actually watch this Netflix show right now. I binge-watched it in TWO days. Netflix picked up this show from Lifetime and Season 2 has already been filmed. It is a creepy thriller and I feel like that's the best way I can describe it.

And can we talk about the parallels between Joe and Dan Humphrey? Disturbing to say the least.

2. Close

This will be released January 18th. If you and your boo like an action-packed movie, this one is for you. A woman security guard is hired to protect an heiress from highly trained kidnappers. If "Taken" was your jam, I have a feeling you'll like this, too.

3. Sex Education

This show is absolutely hilarious. A teenage virgin with a sex therapist as a mother teams up with an edgy classmate to start their own sex therapy clinic at their school—because since his mom is an expert that means he is, too... right?

4. The Umbrella Academy

Calling all comic book lovers! Coming to Netflix February 15—a dysfunctional family of superheroes band together. This adaptation of "The Umbrella Academy" comic books is a must-watch. This series stars Ellen Page (MY GIRL), so you know where to find me come the premiere.

5. Velvet Buzzsaw

Two words: Jake Gyllenhaal *swoon*. All art is dangerous. "Velvet Buzzsaw" will be released February 1. Let me just say, this thriller truly puts a new twist on artwork coming to life.

6. IO

Coming to Netflix January 18. Another post-cataclysmic Earth movie—sensing a theme here. The two characters lose hope for earth and set their sights elsewhere: space.

7. Russian doll

Russian Doll from Amy Poehler, Natasha Lyonne, and Leslye Headland... Natasha Lyonne puts nine lives to shame. This one arrives February 1st. I wonder if she'll figure out how to stop dying.

8. Polar

What do you do if your job sees you as a liability? Well if you're an assassin, you fight for your life. This is one both you and your boo should enjoy.

9. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

The interactive thriller. This reminds me of the "Goosebump" books with multiple endings. This is a fun one to do if you want to feel more involved with your movie. You make the calls.

10. Grace and Frankie

"Never too old to not give a f*ck." Grace and Frankie returns January 18 and before your boo says, "f*ck no" to this Netflix original, make him watch this trailer. You can't help but love this show and laugh while doing it.

11. Bird Box, obviously

That is if you haven't seen it already... Watch this movie and you won't regret it. Although your boyfriend might get jealous of Trevante Rhodes (as he should). Oh and just in case you didn't know (cause apparently Twitter didn't)... Sandra Bullock has BEEN around—her badass talent is nothing new.
