What it means to be in love to these kids!

by Laetitia Wong 


We chanced upon an article recently, where a bunch of kids aged 5 to 10, were asked questions about what they thought of love, life, and marriage. These are a mesh of cute, adorable, quirky and downright hilarious.

Oh, where has the love gone? I guess the thing we’re truly missing is the innocence that kids were naturally born with – It’ll be wise to think about life and love back when it was simpler, when things weren’t made complicated by mess like heartbreak and lies. Oh well.


1. Love and Marriage


  • “I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful.” — Manuel, age 8 
  • “Once I’m done with kindergarten, I’m going to find me a wife.” — Tom, age 5 
  • “One of the people has freckles, and so he finds somebody else who has freckles too.” — Andrew, age 6 
  • “One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills.” — Ava, age 8 
  • “Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me.” — Dave, age 8



2. Kissing


  • “When a person gets kissed for the first time, they fall down, and they don’t get up for at least an hour.” — Wendy, age 8 
  • “You learn [how to kiss] right on the spot when the gooshy feelings get the best of you.” — Doug, age 7 
  • “If it’s your mother, you can kiss her anytime. But if it’s a new person, you have to ask permission.” — Roger, age 6 
  • “The rules goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should marry her and have kids with her. It’s the right thing to do.” — Howard, age 8 
  • “You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own TV, ’cause she’ll want to have videos of the wedding.” — Jim, age 10


3. Beauty


  • “Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time.” — Christine, age 9 
  • “It isn’t always how you look. Look at me. I’m handsome like anything, and I haven’t got anybody to marry me yet.” — Brian, age 7


4. How people in love act


  • “They act mooshy. Like puppy dogs, except puppy dogs don’t wag their tails nearly as much.” — Arnold, age 10 
  • See if the man picks up the check. That’s how you can tell if he’s in love.” — John, age 9 
  • “Romantic adults usually are all dressed up, so if they are just wearing jeans it might mean they used to go out or they just broke up.” — Sarah, age 9


5. Good advice about love

  • “If the date turns bad, I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.” — Craig, age 9
