In 2007 there was an all-time low of one word in pop music: love.

This is ironic, because although it has only slightly increased in use since 2007, clearly our obsession with human connection - especially romance - is anything but decreasing. Turn on any popular Spotify playlist for evidence.

Make me look cute!

I am sorry, don't cry.
Look at me and show me your pretty face.

Trifle chatter that we can't even remember by tomorrow.

Saying how much he loves while pinching the tender cheek.

Making the lunchbox together to go on a picnic. "Watch me flipping this!"

What's for lunch today?
Fried Rice!

The food got completely burned black.

"I won!"

"Can we just get a dish-washer?"

At midnight when everyone is asleep, we are sinking into a horror movie munching on some chips. Scrunch scrunch!
