Expressing love and gratitude towards your long-term partner can be hard. But we all know it's important to let your partner how much you appreciate them. I started drawing comics for my boyfriend, now husband, when we first started dating. I didn't like saying cheesy things so drawing comics was my way of showing him I cared. I've portrayed myself as a bunny, Ju, and my husband a monkey, Ja, because he has long lanky arms.  

I illustrate little moments of our lives together, the moments that make me laugh, make me cry, make my heart feel full. By doing so, it allows me to reflect our life together and appreciate the small, but special times we share. 

I started posting my comics on Instagram and Facebook and it brings me so much joy to see others share them with their significant others. If I can make someone smile with my comic every day, it's worth all the effort I put into making them.

Just because you aren't doing something doesn't mean you're killing off valuable time, it could be very beneficial for your mental health if you allow yourself to zone out every once in a while.

I'm scared of heights (well, falling off them really) but do these things as my husband loves going up and down mountains! I only do the easy routes generally but while climbing up a steep bit that was just meant to be a walk 🙄 I focussed very, very intently on the bit in front of me (don't look down, DON'T look down) and hit my head hard on an overhanging rock above me. 🤕

I love that she pointed out the hottie. It's great when women are comfortable enough to be like "damn she's hot!"

My beloved brings me flowers just because, but when he comes home with chocolate, I know he's 'done something.'

Surely these days there are a lot of men doing the cooking and the women taking them out for dinner! EDIT: Argh!! Sorry, forgot I was reading about someone's life there for a moment and not a more general piece on society. My bad. My husband is home and keeps distracting me from Bored Panda. Bad husband (he really isn't!).
