There may be some of us out there who believe they’ve found their perfect match and are so lucky in love. Or some of us that have experienced what it feels like to be in a serious relationship.
For those of you that have been with someone for a long time you will understand that there are certain things that will only make sense to couples. From using the toilet when one of you is in the shower to spending hours deciding what to watch on Netflix.
At some point you must have experienced at least one of these 25 things. So we have put together a list of the 26 slightly weird things couples do when they’ve been together for quite some time…
1. Snoozing your alarm so you’re partner doesn’t get a lie in
There is nothing worse than if your significant other doesn’t have to go in work and you’re the one left to get up and leave the house. Mainly because you don’t want to leave them in bed by themselves because you’d much rather be there with them, but you also feel immensely jealous that they get to lounge about in bed all day and you can’t.
To show your frustration you keep snoozing your alarm so that they keep waking up every five minutes.
2. Farting in front of each other
For some people, passing gas in front of your partner at the early stages of the relationship may not have seemed like an issue at all. But there are some people that still don’t feel comfortable with it. We think farting in front of each other is a sign of saying ‘I Love You’ really. Especially when you’re in bed and you cover their head with the sheet.
3. Texting them that you need toilet paper from the bathroom
One of the great things about being in a relationship is always having somebody there when you need them the most. We’re talking about when you’re in the bathroom doing your business and once you’re finished you realise you have no loo-roll. It’s so much easier when you have your own personal assistant to deliver you some.
The only problem about this situation, is arguing who left the bathroom without any toilet roll in the first place. Every single time you’re adamant that it wasn’t you!
4. The endless conversations about what food you should eat
These are the sort of conversations that can last hours, especially when your both as indecisive as each other. You both say that “I’m not bothered”, “I’ll eat whatever you want” but then you starting saying the long list of things you’re not really in the mood for.
It always ends up with someone being annoyed with the decision that was made.
5. These conversations are nearly as bad as choosing what to watch on Netflix
Very similar to the previous point of not being able to choose what food to eat. If you decide to have a night in together and order food and watch Netflix then you might want to start having the decision about what you’re going to eat and watch a couple of weeks before.
Otherwise you’ll spend the majority of the night getting frustrated with each other.
6. Watching an episode of something without your partner and pretending you haven’t
On the odd occasion when you get a bit of alone time you might decide to watch an episode of the series you have both been watching together. You don’t say anything because you know how p^ssed off they’ll be so you have to watch it again and pretend you’ve never seen it.
7. Warning your partner to not enter the bathroom after you’ve just used it
Thinking about it, this is one of the kindest things you can do in a relationship. Your partner should only be thanking you if you have to warn them to stay out of the bathroom after you have done your dirty work.
8. Arguing about how to squeeze a tube of toothpaste
There is nothing worse than going to brush your teeth and the tube of toothpaste is looking like it’s been battered. No matter how many times you have to tell them to push the toothpaste from the end to the bottom, your partner still ends up doing it wrong.
9. Rearranging the dishwasher
This is one of those situations when your partner tries to help out a bit more by arranging the dishwasher. Even though you are so thankful that they used their initiative, you still end up rearranging the dishwasher when they’re not looking. Funnily enough there is a right way to do it, and you always think yours is the right way.
10. Surprising your S.O. by bringing them food home from work
This is one of the many reasons why you love them. When you least expect it and you’re waiting for them to come home from work and they walk in with your favourite Italian food. Or when you’ve had a hard day at work and you get home and there is food waiting for you on the table.
11. Getting straight into your comfy clothes after work and snuggling up together
The first thing some us do when we get home is get out of our work uniform, some usually take their bras off and you both just get into shorts or joggers and snuggle up on the couch. No better feeling than that.
12. Secretly using your partners beauty products
They constantly question where their face moisturiser is going but you deny all accounts that you’ve been using any of it. Why buy your own when you can just use theirs?
13. Arguing about how certain chores should be done
Just like the dishwasher everyone has their own specific way of doing things and chores are definitely one to add to this list. For example, fold clothes or even how to wipe the sides clean (like there is more than one way of doing that). Whatever the chore is, you have to make a comment about how they are completing the task.
14. Buying something for your partner and lying about the cost
Because you love them so much you like to treat them from time to time without them asking you. Their response is always thankful, however they seem to always jump to ask how much it costs. Does it really matter? Just enjoy what I’ve bought for you!
15. Telling your S.O. a story be shouting it across the house because you can’t be bothered getting up
When you’ve been together a long time you will be very used to the fact that you’re both as lazy as each other. So when one of you has a story to tell the other but you’re both in different rooms, that doesn’t stop you. Instead you just shout it to each other from opposite ends of the house.
16. Having sex to resolve an argument
I’m sure everyone will agree that make up sex is one of if not the best type of sex there is. I won’t go into too much detail, but if you know then you really know!
17. Eating each others leftovers
Having your own personal hoover is one of the best things about being in a relationship. Not only is it good for having no wasted food, but you know in a couple of days time your partner will leave some of their food and you’ll eat the rest of it for them.
18. Asking your partner what you missed after you leave the room to get a drink whilst watching a film
This may be quite a common thing to do for everyone, not just couples. But when you’re in a relationship there is usually one main person who is guilty for this and ends up doing it every time you decide to watch a film.
19. Arguing about who turned the heating up or down leaving you freezing or too hot
This is one of the common arguments every couple seems to have. For some reason you both have very different limits when it comes to being cold and hot. For one of you, you seem to be cold as soon as the switch for the heating comes off and you notice it straight away every time.
20. Using the toilet when your S.O. is in the shower
For people who are single, this may sound really weird. Why would want someone to be using the toilet whilst you’re in the bath or shower? But this is actually one of the more normal things about being a couple and you get used to it very fast.
21. Falling asleep whilst watching a movie after promising them you’ll stay awake
If you know your partner well enough, you will know when they are awake enough to watch a movie the whole way through. You don’t want to end up watching it by yourself, but 8 times out of 10, they usually fall asleep within the first 10 minutes.
22. Getting ready for bed before having sex so you don’t have to get back up
This is one of the better ways to end the day and it might sound dirty to some people because why wouldn’t you shower straight after sex? Yes, you usually do, but you are definitely comfortable enough with each other to just sleep it off. Don’t worry, we all do it!
23. Sending each other selfies even when you’re in the same room
There are some couples that just can’t get enough of each other. Sending your partner a quick selfie throughout the day is quite a common thing, but for some couples sending a funny selfie to them whilst you’re in the same room, is a good way to make them laugh.
24. Doing chores to get in the good books
There comes a time where you and your S.O. have had an argument, big or small, and the one thing you know that will make them happy is if you do a couple of chores. Especially when you know you are in the wrong.
25. When you’re mad with each other, you don’t lift a finger
But for some couples, you’re both as stubborn as each other and you know neither of you will be the first to lift a finger once you’ve had an argument. In the end someone cracks first but you promise that it was because you wanted to and you weren’t doing it to be nice.
26. Leaving hair in the sink
Everyone knows what it feels like when your S.O. can’t seem to clean up after themselves and there is nothing worse than when you go to use the bathroom and there is hair everywhere.
