*giggles like a schoolgirl again*
Hello hello. 😉
Friday’s conversation with a friend went something like this:
Friend: So, are the both of you lovey-dovey? at that “you hang up first la …… no, you hang up first!” conversations, and mushy disgusting “i love youuuuu” stage?
Me: No! Ahahaha …… that’s a bit too soon, right?
Friend: I don’t know! Sometimes it just comes naturally?
Me: Hmmm …. Nope, I’m not at that stage yet.
Anyway, everyone says that this is the honeymoon period of the relationship where everything is warm and fuzzy, rainbows despite the rain, sugar and spice and everything nice. ;P Nobody says that it lasts forever!
A married friend of a friend once wished his wife was more affectionate towards him, instead of being so reserved. He had sighed and said that just a little bit of effort from his wife was all a man needed, and that was not too much to ask. Sure she keeps the house in spic and span condition and cares for the kids, but what about her as a woman to her husband? For example, a greeting with a kiss at the beginning and at the end of the day wasn’t too much to ask, was it?
Like for many couples, they say the flowers stop coming once a couple is in a steady relationship. Ha! This was what I was told when I gleefully told my friends I had received 3 bouquets for Valentine’s day!
I don’t expect flowers all the time, but hey, a little gesture that means a LOT is good enough. For example, just giving her or him something she or he really likes, and not something you want her to like. (Ahem, now who did you have in mind when you bought her an Xbox for Christmas? ;D)
So is a couple lovey-dovey forever? I’m sure those who have been childhood sweethearts and eventually husband and wife are STILL into each other after all the years, aren’t they?
I guess you cannot measure a honeymoon period based on the exchange of gifts, but the love and affection given and received throughout the period? No? Ok, I’m getting a bit confused here ……..
P.S. I bet someone will say it HAS to be the good sex in bed.
