Being in a long-term relationship is very different from the casual dating phase. For one, you’re much more comfortable around one another, so the butterflies have generally settled into a happy contentment — for another, the odds of sharing nude pics with one another decreases dramatically, while the odds of sharing funny baby animal videos with one another absolutely skyrockets.
Sarah Cintron and Juan Ramos, two 19-year-olds at the University of Texas at El Paso, recently proved this point when Sarah texted Juan and told him that she was showering.
Rather than making a lascivious request, though, Juan simply asked if Sarah could send him “a picture of [her] hair up in a giant spike.”
And yes — people in long-term relationships are the silliest kinds of people.
Most guys: send noodes

“She had sent a picture with her hair like that before and I thought it was so funny, so I asked her again just to get a good laugh and to make her laugh as well,” Juan explained to Buzzfeed. “You gotta make your girl laugh every day.”
Obviously, Twitter was charmed by such a pure request.
I’m so sad that is so pure

One Twitter user even offered a photo of her own shampooed hair “spike.”

And, in case you were wondering what Sarah’s initial shower photo looked like, you can simply direct your attention toward her Twitter prof pic.
If sending silly texts like this isn’t the encapsulation of love at its purest, then I just don’t know what is.
