People show love in different ways.

Jim was pouting and insisting that I told my parents and my family at the dinner table that I love him. Of course, I love him--very much. However, as I told Jim, I don't have to tell them I love him for them to know that. In my culture, we don't usually say we love each other in front of other people or display public affection. We keep it private. We can tell if one person loves another by observing their actions, not necessarily with kissing or saying "I love you." Don't misunderstand me for I do not, by any mean, think there's anything wrong with saying "I love you" or kissing publicly (in a tasteful way). Each culture is different. So, after interacting with people from different countries and extensive researching, I have compiled a list of ways people from different countries show love for each other.

1. USA: say "I love you", kiss passionately.

2. France: French kiss while rubbing each other's butt.

3. Vietnam: blink eyes at each other repeatedly until one gets tired and gives up.

4. Japan: bow their heads while oscillating their tongues.

5. China: make high-pitched bird calls while doing Tai-chi.

6. Cambodia: dance with their hips opposite each other until the male's sarong falls off.

7. Nepal: Nod their heads from side to side in a synchronized way until one gets dizzy.

8. Russia: flap their thighs to their national anthem.

9. German: exchange fake, little mustaches.

10. Ireland: dance in kilts WITH underwears on, unlike usual.

11. Sweden: give naked massages.

Actually, the research was done by Gay Confucius. So, believe at your own risk.


  1. I think I need to experience demonstrating my love the way some of these other cultures do. Not all of them, mind you!

  2. Too funny!!! Actions speak louder than words. I am realizing that the I love you or kiss doesn;t necessarily mean I am loved, anyone can do this. Thanks for your wisdom. AWILTAGM

  3. I'm glad I brought a smile to you...Merry Christmas.
