Love Happens #3 – “I’ve found you, my missing puzzle piece.”

“As a guy, you don’t mind wearing matching T-shirts?” “No, not really. In fact, we have more than just these pair of shirts we’re wearing. Oh, we have a matching soccer jersey too.”

“As a guy, you don’t mind wearing matching T-shirts?”
“No, not really. In fact, we have more than just these pair of shirts we’re wearing.
Oh, we have a matching soccer jersey too.”

First thought that came to our mind when we chanced upon this couple was that they make a really sweet pair. (: It may be a simple donning of matching tees, but we can understand so much even without asking them anything. Donning of matching tees (or having couple items) is a symbol of affirmation of the relationship. By having couple/matching tees or items, we see that they are definitely not ashamed of their partner and in fact, they are proud to be in the relationship.

Being proud of yourself, your loved one and of the relationship itself is one of the key aspect of any healthy relationship. To our readers out there, make sure that in a relationship, your partner respects and appreciates you and is proud of you, that he/she is not ashamed to tell the world that he/she is attached to you. Of course, I’m not saying that public displays of affection (PDAs) are a must, but I’m saying that a basic level of expectation for how “public” your relationship is should at least be met. Signs of him/her denying the relationship when asked by others, insisting that he/she is single when you two are attached, etc. are signs that there needs to be more communication between the two of you. Always make sure that you both are on the same page and if you both are not, maybe it’s time to reconsider the relationship.

Having said all that, I must add that I don’t mean that all couples have to be “public” in order for them to work, what I mean is that you must be comfortable with how your relationship is. Remember that all couples have different dynamics, and all individuals have different value-orientations and personalities. Ultimately, the happiness of the both of you is most important, and communication is key to any successful and healthy relationship. (:

It’s the Christmas season and I’m sure you people out there are eager to get that one special gift. You could consider getting matching/couple tees/merchandise or even make them from scratch (self-painted shoes, self-knitted handphone socks, etc.) for you and your loved one. That’d be really sweet. (: If you are a LoveByte user, don’t forget to record this down on your Timeline! The very first day you all wore your couple tee/carried out your matching items together sure makes a wonderful memory worth remembering. (:

I hope that you were inspired by our two lovebirds featured here, as much as we were. Through one act alone, they’ve said it all. (:

With Christmas Love,
