I purchased my wife a Garmin watch that had GPS and heart rate monitor etc. Most importantly for her it shows how many calories she's burned. So one week after doing a lot of running and biking she starts talking about how many more calories she burned when she does exercises that keep her heart rate up above 80% her max.

Whether you're dating, in love, or just Facebook stalking, relationships are weird.
No Need For a Moment of Silence
Internship far from home. Awesome girl back home with great boyfriend feels sorry for me and tells me we can keep each other from dying of boredom at our internships. Texts all day. Feel like I'm friendzoned to infinity but way out of my league so I never had a shot anyway. Then one night get text "You're a guy. Can I ask advice?" Find out great boyfriend not so great. She dumps him even thought it kills her, calls me on the drive back from his house. Rest of the summer I help her put her shattered soul back together even though I'm literally 1000 miles away. I fell so bad for her I don't realize we're talk every day. Hours on the phone into the night. Skype call one day and I see her beautiful eyes. Realize I'm falling. Try to be nice guy and just be a friend like she needs. Hurts to not say anything. She's getting so much better, tells me she really appreciates how good of a friend I've been. Tells me she thinks I'm amazing. Tells me she can't wait for me to come home, needs a good friend. My heart twists, so hard to be a nice guy, denies feeli. Come back home, feel so good to be home. Next night is best meteor shower of the year. She asks if she can come watch with me. Sure. Drives over, greets me with the biggest hug in the world, says she really needed that. Take her down to the dock on the lake at midnight. Water like glass, no moon, the sky is deep with scattered stars. No light pollution, I'm miles from a city. Lying on the dock, the meteors stream through, a hundred an hour. Huge breaking streaks of silver light, silent even as they rip the sky like a giant zipper, the atmosphere bowing against their heads. She moves closer, asks if it's weird she gets cuddly. I tell her I don't mind. Wrapped around each other in the dead of night on the lake below a shimmering sky and I laugh, and tell her normal friends don't do this. She laughs and agrees, says I'm not really normal anyway. Shooting stars light up her beautiful eyes. We're on the edge of dreams, staring up at the night, sleepily telling each other how much we both needed a good friend this summer. Telling each other how much we both care about each other. She gives me a squeeze and cuddles closer. "I think I want to kiss you," I whisper. She tilts her head up and meets my lips. Slowly kiss under the stars. She tells me she'd been in denial all summer. I tell her so was I. "It's ridiculous how much I like you," she confesses Friendzone broken. Just be a nice guy.
