Look, it’s been a minute since I’ve been “coupled up” with someone. The last time, they were on an opposite schedule from me, lived about 70 miles away, and, well, let’s just say that it didn’t provide for a bunch of what you will read on this list.
But… it was good while it lasted. For as long as it could last!
Anyway, here are TEN incredibly WEIRD things couples do. If you are #CoupledUP… would you agree with this list? No thoughts are bad thoughts… so… anyone do any of these weird things?
1. Take platonic showers together
Once upon a time, the whole point of you and your partner showering was to do the dirty. Now, you both realize that shower sex is pretty difficult, and now you mostly just shower together for the convenience and company. After all, it is pretty fun to wash someone else’s hair in the shower.
2. Annoy each other for fun
Flicking each other’s ears, putting your cold feet on each other – there are many, many fun ways to annoy your partner. Who knows why it is so much fun to annoy your partner, but it is proof that being in love makes you incredibly patient.
3. Speak in your own language
You and your partner have created your own personal shorthand, replacing words with your own funny abbreviations. When you’re with others, you have to remind yourself not to talk in your secret language, because there is no way anyone would understand what you were talking about.
4. Wear each other’s clothes
The first time you tried on your partner’s jogging bottoms, it was for convenience. Now, you realize how comfy and warm they are, so they moved over to your wardrobe. Your partner isn’t mad, though – they sleep in your old college t-shirt every night.
5. Groom each other
You thought your pimples were the only ones you would squeeze until you met your current partner. Luckily, it doesn’t bother your partner, because they do the exact same thing for you.
6. Have non-stop tickle wars
Nothing makes you laugh more than tickling your partner – other than when they do it to you. It is torture being tickled, but it brings you so much joy to do it to the love of your life. Your partner feels the same way, so the tickle war will probably never end.
7. Talk while brushing your teeth
You never used to try to talk to people while you were brushing your teeth, but now you can’t help it. You always think of important things you need to tell them about, so you use facial expressions, muffled sounds, and sign language to try and let them know what you mean. It’s difficult, but you still keep trying.
8. Do laundry checks
Smelling other people’s clothes is gross right? Not at all – you know your partner’s smell even better than they do, so you’re the perfect person to check if they smell clean. Most of the time, they smell fine and you’re happy to do it – but every so often you take a big whiff and feel like you might pass out. Seriously, how does anyone smell that bad?
9. Scare each other
Seeing your partner smile makes you smile, but seeing your partner scream in fear will crack you up. You both love to jump out at each other and make each other jump. After all, scaring is caring!
10. Finish each other’s sentences
It may seem a bit cheesy and clichéd, but sometimes you know exactly what your partner is thinking. You can predict what they are going to say, and they freak you out when they do the exact same thing. Sometimes, you have whole conversations with facial expressions.
