Sharing whatever you have with your loved one is easy when you're falling in love. It can get harder as the years go by though. You go from "please, have some of mine" to asking "want some?" just to be nice but secretly praying they say no.
Rain in the beginning of a relationship is an excuse to get closer and make out, no matter where you are. After a few years together though, getting caught in the rain usually leads to arguing under the one umbrella you have because someone's getting hit in the back with it or someone's getting wet. Yeh.
Slow dancing in the kitchen or doing the twist while standing on the bed is done in the beginning. Of course, after a while, there's no time for dancing in the kitchen because "we need to cook" and "we need to clean" and there's certainly no time for anything in the bedroom. Wow, I should be an advocate for long-term relationships.
There's always time for resting on each other’s’ laps and talking about anything when you're falling in love. Somehow though, as the years go by, the couch becomes more comfortable than the lap and watching TV non-stop becomes better than spending some time talking to your love.
Breakfasts take forever in the beginning, especially Sunday breakfasts when you have nowhere else to go. Ah, who am I kidding? I wouldn't eat breakfast like this with a guy, even if I'm falling in love. That just looks uncomfortable and a spill is bound to happen.
You become a contortionist in bed when you are falling in love. By that, I mean you twist and do whatever you can to fall asleep embracing your love and somehow, it doesn't feel uncomfortable. After a while though, it's more like "stay away from my side of the bed."
Rooftops and balconies, benches and beaches, every evening feels special when you're falling in love. Along the years though, you can get stuck in a routine of dinner, cleaning, planning, TV, and bed. Yawn.
You even have time for movie credits when you're falling in love. Later, it becomes a chasing game of "Let's go, I need to get up early tomorrow" or "Come on before I'm charged for another hour of parking." Romantique!
The kitchen is used for unhygienic purposes when you're falling in love. There's a pot on the stove but who cares, let the house burn down. Later, the kitchen is for reluctantly making dinner even though you really don't feel like.
It's not like you need to go somewhere to feel the romance when you're falling in love but still, you will make the effort and travel to the most romantic spots in the world to feel even more in love. Kissing next to the Eiffel Tower is a must. Hell, it's a cliché but who cares? You're in love.
Cold days are for snuggling even closer and another excuse to touch each other. Later on, you'll find yourself arguing because you’re blamed for wanting to go out in freezing temperatures or because you were the one who wanted to stay inside. There's heat, sure, but not the right kind of heat.
Your selfies become a two-person job when you're falling in love. You become the annoying couple showing off your love on social media. So maybe couples in long-term relationships forget to do some of these things but at least they're not pushing selfies on anyone. Take that, you happy bastards.
