We all know that relationships change and grow over time, but that's generally a positive thing, rather than a negative one, if you look at it in the right light. Relationships can seem more fun and exciting in the beginning, but it can also be tiring having to be "on" all the time. Some people also believe that people stop trying in long-term relationships, but it depends on your perspective. You might stop trying to impress your partner after a while but (if you're in a healthy relationship) you're still trying in terms of being caring, kind, loving and respectful to one another. These awesome illustrations from Sarah C. Andersen show seven ways in which a new relationship differs from a long-term relationship. Take a look!

The way that you prepare for a date is way different in a new relationship….
When it comes to cuddling in bed at night… the longer you've been with someone, the more likely it is that you'll pull this move every once in a while.
You'll definitely notice a shift in the way that you eat in front of one another even after just a few dinner dates.
The way long-term partners communicate with one another is pretty much like their own language.
And, after a while you'll feel like you can tell each other anything… in graphic detail.
Things in the bedroom often get better the longer you've been with someone and figured out what they like, but the way you initiate definitely changes!
And, while you might stop doing trivial things to impress one another, your love only grows!
