A lot of the depictions of relationships we see in movies and on TV aren’t exactly super realistic. You’re SO probably isn’t holding a boombox above their head to win you over or flying across the country to meet you at the top of the Empire State Building, or offering to bring you a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils. But just because those grand romantic gestures aren’t everyday occurrences doesn’t mean that your love isn’t the stuff of fairytales!
In real life, relationships are usually far more mundane than fiction leads us to believe. But there’s something very comforting and even magical about that!
No one captures that everyday love better than Catana Chetwynd, the artist behind Catana Comics. She makes comics about her relationship with her boyfriend John that are equal parts silly, adorable, and yes, a little mushy. There’s also a newly released book featuring many of her comics!

When you’re out in public, you and your SO may try to be dignified and professional.
Once you’re in the car, though, that all goes out the window.
