The Quirky Things That Couples Love About Each Other

Black Love | The Quirky Things That Couples Love About Each Other
If you are an ooey-gooey romantic like me, you probably love reading about other people's love stories. Unfortunately, the love stories that are streamed from Hollywood are all about one specific type of couple, a type of couple category that most of my readers don't fit into (yeah, I'm looking at you Nicholas Sparks). Well, today you are in luck! I have an ongoing series called Brown Love Stories that features everyday brown couples and their quirky relationships. Check out the quirky things that these couples love the most about each other:
Black Love | The Quirky Things That Couples Love About Each Other
Bryanda & Matt (that's us!)
Bryanda: Matt has an alterego named Quick Flash, based off of the superhero Quick Silver in X-Men Days of Future Past. When he "turns" into Quick Flash, he is literally in his own little super world. Also, he goings longboarding in a motorcycle helmet.
Matt: Bree adds up every digit she sees until it equals a single digit (example: 709= 7+0+9=16= 1+6= 7) and her lucky numbers are 7, 9 and 4, especially from 13 (1+3=4). She is also always randomly twerking and making up songs in our house. It's not provacative or anything, but it's funny and I like it.

Danielle & Shel: Read Their Love Story
Danielle: He likes to pull pranks. His favorite is the sneak attack - when he carefully creeps up and startles me. He thinks it’s very funny.

Shel: Anything can make her cry - news stories, movies, puppy commercials, etc. It’s weird but cute at the same time.

Kriselle & Darell: Read Their Love Story
Kriselle:  I will do or say something really cheesy but sometimes Darell will go along with it and sometimes do it too! He works very hard to portray a certain image to the outside world that when he acts in these ways with me I almost fall in love with him more because it's different than how he normally is. He continues to surprise me every day.

Darell: Surprisingly she eats a lot despite her small size.

Drea & Von: Read Their Love Story
Drea: He is very observant and analytical. He can be completely quiet in a room and observe everything that's going on with everyone. Later he can give you the full scoop about who said what, who did what and how everyone was interacting with each other.

Von: If someone mentions something she doesn't know about, she is on her phone [google] to figure it out. If there is a book out about something she's interested in, ­all out of the blue, she has to read the book ASAP.

Ashley & Darek: Read Their Love Story
Ashley: He prefers just cooked food to not be put in the refrigerator.  He also prefers to reheat items in the oven versus the microwave.

Carissa: Darrick loves jalapeƱo peppers on EVERYTHING! If he falls asleep when we are talking he wakes up and apologizes…every time! His hats and shoes have to match…so whatever color his hat is, he has on the matching shoes.

Darrick: Carissa doesn’t like for her feet to be touched, she never has on matching socks unless she is wearing a pair of mine.

Tevin: She won't let me clean up! She's a stay at home mom and I work..If I try to straighten up the house she will most likely tell me "stop cleaning! I'll do it! This is what I do here!" It's our house but she's the Queen of the castle!

Inez & Johnathan: Read Their Love Story
Inez: He has no tolerance for drama.  He trash talks all of the reality TV shows/celebrity gossip rags and yet he loves to watch "The Bad Girls Club".

Johnathan: She has a bad habit of explaining some random moment, in vivid detail and then if it's something she's not 100% sure of, will end it with "if that makes any sense, I mean, it does but it doesn't" ... I always think, are you having this conversation by yourself, love?  It cracks me up.

Katrina & Neal: Read Their Love Story
Katrina: He cuts coupons and leave them to expire. He also has a 90's school boy humor. He says things like..."Deez nuts!"  I mean come on, who still says that?

Neal: Don't let her 5'2 petite frame and vegetarian game fool you, Katrina can eat her weight plus some.  Our first date we ate at a diner and she ate everything on her plate and some of mine to!  That's what I love about her, she was never shy about her food.  She always enjoy a good meal.

Oh, how I just loooove quirky, brown love...see what I did there? :)
