Romantic Tips and Ideas for Married Couples

The Silly Side of Love
By Susie and Otto Collins

The former Beatle Paul McCartney once wrote a song called "Silly Love Songs" where he wondered whether people had had enough of  "silly love songs" or not.
Like Paul, we're not sure whether people have had their fill of silly love songs or not but acting silly, having fun, and yes, even writing a silly song for your mate, significant other or friend can enhance your relationship.
Very often, Otto will make up and sing what he refers to as a "Susie song."
A "Susie song" is a spur-of-the moment, inspired song about his beloved that he sings to her about how amazing he thinks she is--often to the tune of "I'm a Little Tea Pot."
These "Susie songs" are certainly not songs that anyone else would want to hear or think were cute or funny--but that doesn't matter.
What is important is to understand that this is one of the things we do to create a romantic, intimate, happy, connected moment--when Otto spontaneously bursts
into one of his "Susie songs."
If song-writing isn't something you would like to do, how about something else that might be considered silly or humorous to create a romantic or special moment that  you'll each be sure to remember?
How else can you embrace the silly side of yourself and life to create a special, romantic or connected moment that  neither of you will soon forget?
How about renting and watching a silly movie that you both can laugh at?
Recently, Otto's teenage son rented the crazy movie "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" and invited us to watch it with him.
None of us are NASCAR fans and this movie certainly is not what we normally watch, but we all laughed throughout the whole thing. It was silly and it was really funny.
What it takes to be silly or doing something fun is going to be different for every single person reading this article--and we suggest that you just go for it.
Don't think or care about what other people might think during these times. Just focus on having fun and creating special moments.
Another idea is to come up with a time where you and your partner or friend can go to a park and take on the personas of 7 year olds or 12 year olds. Agree to act like that for a specific period of time--maybe rolling down hills, sledding in the snow or playing on the playground equipment.

The point is to have fun in a different way than you may normally think of fun. 
In today's world, we're all trying to get more done in less time than ever before. Technology was supposed to save us from having to do, do, do but it hasn't worked out that way.
If you are like us, you spend a lot of time being "serious" and  what we find is that it is such a breath of fresh air when we laugh and allow ourselves to be silly and playful--whether it's with each other or with other people.
Laughing and being silly is a great way to relax and to connect.
This week, we invite you to explore how you can enjoy life a little more by doing or enjoying something silly--something that you might not normally do.
