A Reddit User Asked Men In Longterm Relationships What It Is They Miss About The Honeymoon Phase And Here’s What They Had To Say

In a recent post to Reddit, one user posed the question to men “what little things do you miss from your SO from the honeymoon phase?” The Redditor behind the question explained that she had noticed that she’d become so comfortable with her boyfriend that she found themselves kissing less than they had been in the first few months of the start of their relationship. Ultimately the question highlights a pretty big issue: sometimes when it comes to relationships we get so comfortable, we end up being neglectful. If you’re in a long term relationship with your S/O check out these responses to help keep the flame alive.

Spontaneous kisses

“I realized I wasn’t spontaneously kissing my boyfriend as much as I did in the first few months of our relationship and now I am trying to ensure that brief (or long) surprise make out sessions don’t fade from our interactions. Stuff like that.

What little things did your SO do in the beginning of the relationship that stopped once you became comfortable (and that you miss)?”

Jabs that were playful and not so personal

“The flirty texts from him is what I miss the most. I pointed it out and said he doesn’t seem as smitten with me and he said its just that, now that he’s ‘caught’ me, I have to deal with his snarky side more. I don’t mind his snark because I fire it right back but sometimes its like… can’t we have both?” —Warriorette12

Those long-ass cuddle sessions.

“Cuddling. She couldn’t get enough of it, we would waste days cuddled up together in bed. Nowadays, 6 years in, she mostly likes to spread out on her own and basically build a rats nest of pillows and blankets with which she also places her candy stash and will read or watch t.v on her phone. I try to snuggle but if I try it’s treated like an annoyance or I’m bothering her.” – NWcoffeeaddict

The excitement of it all

“Not much but I miss the thumping in my heart whenever I was near her. I still love her the same if not more but I miss the excitement of it all, especially since it’s both our first relationship.”– elizacandle  

Texts that weren’t about groceries

“Married for going on 5 years. I really miss the super flirty texts. We still text each other flirty but not near as intense and sexual. Also, I wish we had as much sex as in the beginning. We still have sex like at least once a week but damn, I miss the daily hardcore banging.” – kentuckyloglady

That R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Date nights

“Going out pretty much everyday (dates and stuff) nowadays due to work and studying we barely have time to watch a movie tho, still i wouldn’t change all the time i had with her in the past.” – vertuchi02

Making out and nothing else

Wanting to hold hands

“We used to hold hands more, just because we could. And he would often just lift the back of my hand up and kiss it like it was a precious thing to hold it. I know its old fashioned a bit but i loved that little gesture. Now we seldom hold hands and i miss it” – RetailandPuppies

The rapid-fire texts

The anticipation and spontaneity of it all

“There is less anticipation and butterflies during sex, but I’m way more comfortable than I have ever been before. That’s the trade off, you don’t have the thrill as much but you don’t have the anxiety either. And you know eachother so well that you know how to please eachother to the greatest extent. Plus you can explore all your fantasies without hesitation because you trust and love eachother. Just because you lose that initial thrill does not make it any less satisfying. Honestly, everything else from the “honeymoon” phase has carried on. The flirting, the spontaneous making out, the long talks, the cuddling, the dates, and everything else, will carry on as long as you decide to carry it on. There is absolutely no reason that you have to let it die, it takes conscious effort sometimes from both parties, but it is your choice, it is not simply a consequence of long term dating.” -Reddit user

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Says People Always Assumed He Was a Girl Growing Up Because He Had ‘Soft Features’

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Says People Always Assumed He Was a Girl Growing Up Because He Had ‘Soft Features’

Dwayne Johnson, agreeably one of the most “masculine” presenting people in the world, recently revealed that people weren’t always so quick to assume he was so. In an interview on “Sunday Today with Willie Geist,” that took place earlier this week the American actor and former professional wrestler revealed that when he was a child, people often assumed he was a girl. 

Speaking about his experience with presumed gender identity, The Rock revealed that people often thought he was girl because of his “soft features.”

“I would say between the ages of 7 and 11, people thought that I was a little girl because I had really soft features and I had really soft Afro hair,” he explained in his interview with Willie Geist.

The actor even went so far as to share a time in his life as a fifth-grader who was riding on a school bus.

“I sit down next to a kid, and within 60 seconds, he goes, ‘Can I ask you something?'” The Rock recalled. “I said, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?'”

Drawing on this time in his life, Johnson revealed that likely this also chalks up to his frequent moves as a child.

During his childhood, Johnson’s father Rocky Johnson was a professional wrestler who often moved his family around. According to John, he attended thirteen different schools by the time he was in high school.

“I have had a Forrest Gump-ian childhood growing up,” Johnson explained in his interview. “Wrestling in the ’80s and in the ’70s was way different than it is today. A lot of the times, including my father, the wrestlers would live paycheck to paycheck.”

The former wrestler reflection on earlier days coincides with the recent premiere of the hit NBC sitcom “Young Rock” a new series based on his life.

Fans of Johnson will be glad to know that he also stars in the series.

He is also portrayed by three different actors Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant and Uli Latukefu.

“Growing up, and you know we specifically went with these timelines in my life that were very defining times at 10 years old, 15 and 18 … there’s a lot of things in between those years that took place … but it was complicated and the relationship that I had with my dad was incredibly complicated — that was fueled by tough love,” he explained during NBC’s TCA press tour in an interview about the series.

He went onto share that his father “was kicked out of his house at 13 and he was homeless, so that then shaped the man who then raised me… And in that complication came an extraordinary life that was full of travel. I lived in 13 different states by the time I was 13 years old, also lived in New Zealand.”

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!
