5 Reasons I like scaring the hell out of my boyfriend (and why he secretly enjoys it)

I have quite the obsession with scaring the hell out of my boyfriend. I hide in any little crevice I can just so I can jump out and spook him. There have been times when I’ve waited a half hour to scare him. Hey – you’ve gotta keep things interesting right? I’m sure this isn’t the kind of “interesting” that most couples would think of. Maybe you’re thinking that I’m a bit cruel. Well, maybe I am but he has picked up on this little hobby of mine and joined right in. It’s safe to say that it’s kind of our thing now. I personally get pure satisfaction out of scaring him and here’s why.
