When two weirdos find each other, that's true love.

Let's face it: It's rather refreshing, even soothing to be with someone who understands your eccentricities and might even join in on them.

But to the outsiders who are looking in... it's just weird, okay?

"What do you do with your SO that isn't normal?" –– That was today's burning question from Redditor FinSonic, and we're wondering if they should have even asked.


"Dated a Swede..."

Dated a Swede for a few years. When he taught me how to say "I Love You in Swedish," "Jag Älskar Dig," I remembered how to pronounce it by saying it as Jog Racecar Day. For the rest of our relationship whenever we wanted to say "love you" or would give each other cards etc, we would just say Racecar.

"It's like kissing the void."

We do 'inverted kissing'. Instead of kissing the lips, one of us surprises the other by opening their mouth big and covering the other party's puckered up lips.

It's like kissing the void. It feels really uncomfortable and it's hilarious. She always does it to me when I'm expecting a kiss.

Bonus points if you can kiss the void for over 5 seconds or have your open mouth over their mouth for a long time. We discovered this when I jokingly opened my mouth during a kiss and she started laughing and going 'noooo'

"We have a 17 year running game..."

We have a 17 year running game of stealthily pinning a clothespin to the other's clothes. Sometimes, no clothespin for months, and then bam. One in your armpit.

"She then hid it somewhere..."

Penis drawings. I don't remember who started it but we hide the same penis drawing for the other one to find. She put it in my suitcase when I went away on a hunting trip with my buddies and I had to explain why I had a crudely drawn wang on a sheet of notebook paper packed with my socks. When I returned I hid one in the bottom of her underwear drawer and it took her a few months to find it. She then hid it somewhere and I haven't found it yet, that was five years ago. She told me I'll find it eventually but I'm afraid of where it might be. I have told her that if she dies before me that she is getting buried with it and I win.

"We often..."

We often just stand in each other's way for no reason other than to be annoying.

"I also make weird faces..."

We sometimes will randomly talk to each other in different accents. Mostly scottish. We are canadian.

I also make weird faces at him and he laughs. It feels good to be silly and weird around him and him not making me feel stupid about it.

"It devolved..."

We invented rock, paper, scissors with kissing!

Mouth closed= Rock

Mouth open= Paper

Tongue sticking out= Scissors

It devolved in to doing it randomly so that we could catch each other by surprise and win!

"We have a mating dance..."

We have a mating dance that has gotten increasingly elaborate in the decade we have been together. Example moves: slapping one's own butt, moving one's arms like a choo choo train, one handed clapping.

Some of the moves go out of fashion year to year, but we have a significant repertoire.

"Well, I just wrapped her up..."

Well, I just wrapped her up in a brown blanket, rolled her back and forth in bed and told her "Shhhhh be bread, it's okay, just be bread, shhhh, loaf-girlfriend, it's okay to become bread" while she cackled and screamed "I DON'T WANT TO BE BREAD."

"We sneak up on each other..."

We sneak up on each other and bite each other on the neck to assert "dominance." We use the "dominance" to win trivial arguments like who do our animals love more.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"

I've seen enough end-of-the-world movies to know that when the end does come that The Rock will not be there to save my lazy self from impending doom.

Life isn't like the movies, sad to say. The relationship humans have to the world is remarkably unhealthy, and as we continue to reckon with the consequences of big business running the world, exploiting resources, and pushing us ever further toward climate catastrophe—

*takes a deep breath*

Sorry, got a bit carried away there... the anxiety is real.

I promise there are some more humorous answers sprinkled in this article, thanks to the efforts of Redditor User34884, who asked the online community:

"What will cause the fall of Western civilization?"
