When you’ve been with your partner for a long time then it’s only natural that things get a bit, well, weird. You’ve grown together as a couple and a part of that means growing right into each other’s personal space and you’re totally fine with that! But to those looking at your relationship from the outside, some of the habits you’ve developed might be a bit too weird for them to understand. But trust me, every couple does this weird stuff and today we’re going to take a look at some of the weirdest things that every couple does when they’ve been together for years!
1. Farts are no longer embarrassing to you
You’re done with trying to hide your farts around your partner, and they’re feeling the same way about you. Gone are the days when you’d act demure and blame the smell on the dog, if you do a particularly large and stinky fart then you deserve congratulations and expect to get them from your other half.
2. Sleeping in the same bed doesn’t hold the joy it used to
Remember when you first got together and cuddling in bed was amazing and new and romantic? Yeah, that stopped being cute years ago. Yes, you probably love each other more now but you also annoy each other a whole lot more and you’re not afraid to share that when they’re stealing all of the covers. Oh, and when they go away you’re secretly a little bit happy because although you’ll miss them terribly, you now get to stretch out all over your bed and love every second of it.
3. It’s a betrayal if one of you watches your show without the other
You have your shows that you just have to watch together and if one of you watches the next episode without the other then that’s a serious betrayal and will be treated as such. I don’t care if you’re trying to avoid Game of Thrones spoilers, watching it without me is not acceptable ever. And on the flip side, there are shows that you have to watch without the other because you know they’ll just never love it as much as you do and their lack of enjoyment will only spoil it for you. So, boyfriend, get used to the fact that RuPaul’s Drag Race time is MY time.
4. You have a system for who gets the last slice of pizza
Of course, this doesn’t just cover pizza, but any piece of good food that you might be trying to share right now. Maybe one of you has had a terrible day, and therefore they’ve earned the last slice. Maybe one of you is feeling generous and wants to see the other person happy with the last slice. Or maybe you’re just feeling grumpy and you’re taking the last slice no matter what and don’t care about the consequences.
