What Are Your Relationship Goals in Three Words?

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 12.54.07 PM

My sister sent me this link a few days ago (thanks, Allie!), which describes how Twitter users are using the hashtag #RelationshipGoalsIn3Words to share their hopes, dreams, and goals for their love life.

Here are mine, currently, seven weeks after having our second baby:

Get more sleep.

Use Seamless less.

Have dates again.

Schedule a vasectomy.

  1. Always have fun.

    Eat delicious food.

    Continue touching lots.

    Find joy together.

      Couldn’t agree more!

  2. Share my desserts.
    Go on trips.
    Less screen time.

    1. Haha, didn’t you find him already?

      1. Well, yes! Sorry. I should change it to “Keep witty partner.”

        My girlfriends like to make fun of me and call him by boyfriend. I am adamant he is not. However, I’m not interested in dating anyone else.

      2. He’s totally your boyfriend 🙂

      3. NOPE! It has only been five and a half weeks, not that I’m counting. I’ll reassess in three or four more.

      7. Oh AP, I need to see you. And give you a book. This needs to happen.
        .
        We haven’t discussed it… so I’m going with a firm no.

  3. Happily ever after. (Is that corny enough?)

  4. Wendy, is the image above intended to go with “schedule a vasectomy”? Is Drew aware of your nefarious plans?

    1. Hah I didn’t even notice the picture til you pointed it out. AWESOME!

      My husband already knows that once we close up baby shop he’s getting snipped. I figure once the woman grows and births a couple humans, it’s the least the man can do. Well that, and to hand deliver as many margaritas as she wants.

        I like your thinking!

    Get through pregnancy.
    Drink together again!
    Get out often.
    Nurture our marriage.
    Have happy family.

    But for now?
    More foot rubs.

  6. Travel the world
    See many animals
    Enjoy being newlyweds
    Relish our independence
    Be badass together

  7. Finish PhD Successfully
    Get Green Card
    Finally live together
    No more Skype
    Grow old together

  8. Find fulfilling jobs
    Put down phones
    Go on dates
    Spend time apart
    More sex please

    we both at weird points in our lives right now. Job searching is stressful and it’s definitely taken a toll on our relationship. We’ve got to work on that.

  9. Travel more together.
    Have one kid.
    Never stop loving.
    Remember the commitment.

  10. anonymousse says:

    Lol. I love it. I second the vasectomy.

    Enjoy the moment.
    Be grateful always.
    Invest in myself.
    Put down phones! (Good one, Ettakit!)

  11. Share a bed
    sit at table
    in same place

  12. Ha-ha “Schedule a vasectomy” – every time I saw the midwives while pregnant, they always asked about post partum birth control plans and I got so many funny looks when I said that my husband had a vasectomy 13 years ago.

    Mine are:
    More time alone
    More sleep together
    Create awesome memories

  13. Sunshine Brite says:

    Organize the house
    Grow old together
    Find joy daily
    Healthy and happy

  14. Enjoy time together
    Play more pool
    Be happy forever

    try new things
    happy & healthy
    relaxation & spontaneity
    travel & adventure

  16. Laugh all night.
    Share good books.
    Go on adventures.
    Share delicious food.
    Have amazing sex.

    I think this is an awesome exercise for anyone who needs to figure out what they really want from a relationship.

  17. Hm, interesting…
    .
    Plan next adventure.
    Watch less Netflix.
    Run together more.

  18. Move without murder.

    That’s the only one. We bought a house (yay!) and then we sold our house (yay!!!) but it happened so fast (I know, I shouldn’t complain) that we have to move out really quick. We fight about twice a day about some moving-related thing. Ugh.

    Read more books
    Break from dating
    hang with friends
    healthy and happy (again)

    Once I am back home in Ontario I am taking a much needed break from dating. I need to get back to myself again and do the things I love most 🙂

    1. Ontario, Canada? Or Ontario, California?? I keep losing track of who is Canadian here 🙂
