young love

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
A few Saturdays ago DH and I went bowling with his cousin and his girlfriend. They've been together for about to years and are a great match. They made me remember when DH and I first got together. Ya know, can't keep their hands off each other. Saying I love you every five minutes. Being sweet to each other. Man, I kind of miss being like that. So how many of you miss the sappy stage of your relationships?

My husband and I have been together for 3 years now. We're still very lovey and touchy feely...but nowhere near like it was in the first year of our relationship! I miss him wanting to be close when we'd go to car meets and always reaching for my hand.

I cant complain too much right now though, because we are still very affectionate towards one another, and probably still considered part of the "young love" crowd.

Plus the fact we were in a LDR the first 6 months of being together could have attributed to the clingyness he had towards me

We just celebrated our 6th year of marriage and are still in the sappy stage and the honeymoon stage. We don't plan on it ending any time soon

I have been with my husband for 5 years and we act the same way we did in the beginning. We have alot of fun with each other and still say the I love you's all the time! I am so grateful that he is in my life.

I appreciate things after being married to 2 abusive men in my past.

DH and I have been together ten. We still love each other very much it's just we're not all goosy goosy for some reason. Maybe that's just who we are.

My BF and I have only been together 2 1/2 years and we're well past that always have to be near each other phase. I dunno if it's a bad sign but I just don't feel the need for it. We have been living together for a lil over a year. We got very close very fast and now I'm just comfortable and content with him.

Those the might feel they are missing something, I'd strongly advise you to evaluate the relationship and bring the spark back in it. If the flame dies for each other, you might not get it back.

Marriage is something that needs to be worked on every day if you want it to last

I don't think necessarily that the spark is gone. I love my BF very very much and I am thankful everyday I have him and all he does for me. I'm just in a comfort zone with him. I don't need him to kiss me and tell me he loves me every second of every day. The fact that he comes home to me everyday and has never done anything deceitful to me shows his love. If that makes sense.

Reminds me of something I heard once... it went something like this:

"Love is beautiful, but when you're not the one in love, it all just looks like a great big dork-fest."

Maybe I'm just a bitter old single witch.

Just kidding. I'm not a witch.

We've been married 30+ years and together for 32. Our love has gone from that euphoric stage to a deep, abiding love where we still have that spark (just not as often) but more importantly, there is a depth and caring that comes with the aging of the relationship. We are still affectionate, kiss hello and goodbye, even just going or coming in from work, have the spontaneous hugs while in the kitchen doing chores or when passing each other. We still say I love you, still say thank you when one does something for the other like when he changes the windshield wipers for me or any of the millions of other little things he does and he always says thank you after dinner when I cook which is 6 out of 7 nights per week or after I've spent the day cleaning, he'll tell me how nice the house looks or how he appreciates his clothes clean and pressed.

I think if you show each other love and especially respect that will keep the spark alive.

I'm am in the sappy stage right now And yes it is ridiculous and I'm sure we made alot of people around us very uncomfortable at the Carrie Underwood concert as we were holding hands and gazing at eachother

I know I know but man do I ever love it.

I guess by the descriptions of all the lovey stuff, we're still in it! We've lived together for 2.5 years now, and he'll still pat my butt when we're out or kiss my forehead randomly, hold hands at the store 'til he has to push the cart. There's definitely a spark there still - Heck, a giant flame!!! Still cant get enough of one another, but I think the whole "cling to me every second" went away once we moved in together - we weren't going long periods of time without seeing each other anymore. Now we can sit on opposite sides of the room for an hour or two and be fine

Once last year I went to Carowinds with my mom and left him with my dad. I called a few times to see how things were going and to just say hi, he kept telling me to go have fun. Then around 7:30pm he called me and was like "When are you coming home? I MISS YOU!!" Aww When I got home, it was just like when we had been apart for 2-3 weeks at a time.

I dont think I'll ever lose the feeling of wanting to be in his arms, or ever stop saying I love you a lot to one another. Even after we argue about something, we usually realize it was a dumb argument and fall asleep with his arm around me, and holding hands.

My husband and I are strange. We've been married almost 2.5 years but have been best friends for over 15 years so we kind of skipped over the "clinging" stage. He is incredibly romantic sometimes...usually when I'm not expecting it. He takes great pleasure in pinching my butt when we're in public. We pick on each other constantly, which sometimes really upsets his mom, but she misses the wink he gives me. And, when he winks I just melt!
