Silly is the New Romantic: Actually, it’s always been.
It is because people often forget this that you hear couples or married people complain about how love flies out of the window after a few years or how their partner’s changed colours. Maybe they changed colours because you changed yours? Maybe you stopped doing things that you did to win their love. Remember how you made a monkey out of yourself to woo him or her?
Never stop doing the silly things you did to get him/ her. That’s the secret to love as well as life.
Take a holiday from your seriousness. Act silly, surprise each other, do crazy things together, have some fun, laugh until your bellies hurt. It’s in these silly little moments that you see pure love, and it is these silly moments that will make you smile when you look back upon them when you grow old together.
We know, your silliness has gotten a little rusty, so here are some ideas from us to help you enjoy this Valentine’s Day like a couple of adolescents:
Make some silly Valentine-themed food and see what a big smile it brings on your partner’s face. It’s not as much hard work as it sounds. We bet they will join in on your silliness and refuse to eat it because it looks so cute.
Knowing someone is the first step to loving them. Remember in those initial days of your courtship how you kept asking about each other’s favourite colour, favourite food, favourite movie et al?
