  • Silenced With A Kiss

    | Sweden | Dating

    (My boyfriend and I are sitting at home, watching a music festival that is prior to the Eurovision song contest. Currently there is a song playing that is not something we enjoy.)

    Boyfriend: “Why do they even have the guitarists out? You can’t actually hear any guitars. And they’re not even plugged in!”

    (I start kissing him to shut him up, which he catches on to.)

    Boyfriend: “Will you kiss me every time I start whining about something?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Boyfriend: “Oh, I hate people. And things are bad and… Do I get kisses now?”

    The Best Ones Take A While To Blossom

    | USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (A man has been visiting my flower shop every day for the past few weeks, and buying random flowers each time. I catch on quickly and start to flirt with him, but he is very shy and becomes quickly flustered. One day he comes in as usual, and we chat for a while.)

    Me: *playfully* “Now, are you going to buy any flowers or do I have to kick you out to make room for real customers?”

    Man: “Oh! Uh…”

    (He turns red and looks around at the flowers. I pick out a couple of peonies.)

    Me: “Here, buy these. You can give them to me when you pick me up for dinner tonight, around 6:30?”

    Man: “O-Okay.”

    (This year is our 20th wedding anniversary and our daughter just turned 17. Of course, there is always a vase of peonies in our home!)

    Valentine’s Day Can Keep Couples On Their Toes

    | Berkeley, CA, USA | Engaged, Theme Of The Month

    (My fiancé and I are cuddling in bed, talking about random things. Somehow the subject gets onto socks and how you can never tell the left and the right sock apart.)

    Me: “You can with me! For some reason, I apparently like to wiggle my left toe a lot, so the socks that I’ve worn mostly on my left foot all have holes in the big toe.”

    Fiancé: “Really? Your left toe?”

    Me: “Yep. Doesn’t that just make you fall in love with me aaaalll over again?”

    Fiancé: *serious* “Yes.”

    Me: “What?”

    Fiancé: “It’s this thing about committed relationships. You find out new quirks about each other every day. So, yes.”

    Me: “That… wasn’t supposed to be nearly that sweet. I love you, honey. And I know what I’m getting you for Valentine’s Day: socks!”

    Love In The Time Of Zombies, Part 6

    | FL, USA | Dating

    (My boyfriend has gone to the bathroom so I’m lying in bed playing on my phone. I don’t hear him come in when I feel something bite my butt.)

    Me: “Ah! What was that?!”

    Boyfriend: “A zombie.”

    Me: “You let a zombie bite me? Now I’m going to be a zombie!”

    Boyfriend: “He was fast but it’s okay. We will still be together.”

    Me: “But what if I have the urge to bite you?”

    Boyfriend: “Just don’t kill me, woman, and I can be a zombie too.”

    (I feel another bite when he lays down to cuddle.)

    Me: “Baby, another zombie bit me.”

    Boyfriend: “No, that was me.”

    A Silly Habibi

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | Marriage & Partners

    (My husband and I sometimes get a little silly. This time, I come home and greet him the regular way.)

    Me: “Hi, Baby!”

    Husband: “Hi, Baby!”

    (We start the silliness:)

    Me: “Hi, Babyyy!”

    Husband: “Hi, Babee!”

    Me: “Hi, Beebee!”

    Husband: “Hai, Beebee!”

    Me: “Habibi! Wait… Isn’t that an actual word?”

    Husband: “Yeah. Arabic, I think…”

    Me: “God, I hope it doesn’t mean anything insulting. Google it!”

    Husband: *reading from Wikipedia* “Habibi is an Syriac-Aramaic and Arabic word whose literal meaning is my beloved.”

    Me: “Aww, how sweet! Habibi!”

    Husband: “Habibiii!”
