My Funny Valentine: 5 LOL Truths About Love

L O V E. Four little letters that carry so much weight when strung together.

It’s such an amazing thing, a defining part of the human experience. But I thought today would be the perfect time to share the more humorous side to love I’ve encountered in the past few years. Instead of a corny Valentine, these are the things that you laugh about and appreciate on a whole ‘nother level when you make the decision to spend the rest of your lives together. It ain’t always easy, but you sure learn to find the humour in things! And while these things aren’t specifically about marriage, they definitely refer to some of the more comical aspects of being in a relationship. I hope you enjoy (and can relate! 😉 ).

Think of this as a ‘you know you love someone when…’ list

  1. Bodily functions: TMI no longer. Farts, burps, snoring, you name it. You know you love someone when you witness all of these (and more) and still look them in the eye (without laughing) and tell them ‘I love you’ (hell, you might even find some of it cute). Things definitely change when you become comfortable around each other.
  2. You don’t even pretend not to fight or argue or bicker. Instead you make jokes about chasing each other around the house with a frying pan and indulge in the thought of how satisfying it might be to have a wiffle bat fight to get out your frustrations. No matter what, you love each other but some days you just DRIVE EACH OTHER CRAZY.
  3. Flashing body parts waivers between ‘come here and make mad, passionate love to me’ a la day time soap operas and ‘nanananabooboo you can’t have this <insert said body part>’. Basically, nudity becomes a cruel game of peekaboo under many circumstances. 
  4. Building on #3: You become creative with opportunities to (ahem) do the things. And by the things I mean each other. And by each other I mean whatever form of activities you can get (and while all necessary body body parts still work and haven’t shrivelled/ stretched/ become completely unrecognizable). ‘I’m tired/ not in the mood/ the kids are awake/ Paw Patrol is on in the background’… are probably spoken more often than ‘hey baby’ <insert suggestive eyebrow wiggle>. (Also- I have to reference MC Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This’ here- aka basically the anthem of what it’s like living together with kids around).
  5. You see each other at each other’s absolute worst (and we’re talking body hair in weird places, half- dead when sick, no makeup/ hair not done/ unshaven/ bad breath, etc) and still somehow manage to love each other/ find each other attractive/ potentially do said things mentioned in #3 & 4. It is absolutely about loving and accepting each other for who you are, but let’s face it, you have to have a sense of humour with yourselves and each other. 

Does this sound familiar to anyone else???

I hope if this post did nothing else, it gave you a laugh (or a few). Love is about so many things, but I definitely think keeping a sense of humour helps a lot when it comes to keeping the love alive and relationships fun and interesting. 😉 Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Haha! So much truth in this. Love is certainly a precious gift when you can be so open and vulnerable.

      When I read this to my husband before I posted it he got a good chuckle. I’m so grateful we can love each other on this kind of level and share a few laughs at the same time. Hope you have an amazing Valentine’s Day!

    This is too funny! I always think it’s funny how some people act like their spouses don’t go to the restroom or fart or whatever. It’s a huge joke in our house and we laugh about it often!

      I love that you guys are real about it all too! We have so many laughs too with the farts/ burps, etc- I think it’s the best way to be and way more fun! 😉

    Such hilarious truths, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Gosh can you remember those uncomfortable dating situations where you were basically sweating from having to try and hold in a burp or a fart! lol. I’m so thankful for maturity and matrimony! Not just for the sake of my bodily functions, haha, but it’s so wonderful to just be yourself, 100% and still be loved for all that you are. Happy Valentine’s day KP!

      So, so true! I appreciate being able to be myself and just enjoy each other- in whatever form that may be. 😉 I hope you have a wonderful Vday too Patrice!

    Haha, yep! My husband used to tell me when we were dating that he’d always take extra long walking around the car so he could fart before he got back in. Now? There’s no holding back!

      Haha this just put the biggest smile on my face- I knew I couldn’t be alone! 😉
