We’ve all been there. We’ve had experience with THAT couple. We’ve had friends who’ve gotten into relationships that turned them into complete jerks. These are the kinds of couples that are just a pain to be around. They try too hard to act like a couple helplessly in love but you can tell that they’re as fake as plastic. To add, one thing that you’re sure about these kinds of couples is that they’re never going to last. They can only fool themselves for so long.
We’ve all been there. We’ve had experience with THAT couple. We’ve had friends who’ve gotten into relationships that turned them into complete jerks. These are the kinds of couples that are just a pain to be around. They try too hard to act like a couple helplessly in love but you can tell that they’re as fake as plastic. To add, one thing that you’re sure about these kinds of couples is that they’re never going to last. They can only fool themselves for so long. They’re not even doing a good job at fooling the people around them.
Relationships are supposed to be beautiful and easy. The best kinds of relationships should enrich the lives of the people involved along with the people who happen to chance an encounter with them. Love should always manage to bring joy to people, and when it just brings a lot of hatred and annoyance, then it’s probably not the good kind of love. So it should be in your best interests to try not to be that couple that everyone hates. When you get into a relationship, make sure you’re not the kind of couple that gets on peoples’ nerves. Don’t be a burden to the people around you. So how are you supposed to know if you’re that kind of couple? Well, you only need to have a fair sense of self-awareness. Here are 7 signs that you suck as a couple.
1. You start telling your single friends that they also need to find relationships.
Please, a lot of your friends aren’t single by choice. A lot of them are craving for the kind of love that you’re enjoying. However, maybe life just hasn’t been fair to them, or timing just isn’t on their side. Whatever the case, you should stop rubbing their bad luck in their face. You need to be sensitive of other peoples’ feelings. It’s perfectly fine for you to enjoy the stability of your relationship, but just refrain from making others feel bad about not having what you have.
2. You’ve replaced Me and I with We.
Have you completely just given up who you are as a person? Just by getting into a relationship, have you just compromised your sense of self-identity? That’s just sad, and frankly irritating. It shouldn’t mean that just because you’re in a new relationship, you shouldn’t have a life outside of who you are as a couple. It’s okay to have a life beyond who you are as a couple. It’s downright pathetic that you’ve dissolved your individual self. – Continue reading on the next page
3. You make use of inappropriate nicknames in public.
Sometimes, there are nicknames that you just don’t use in public. There are nicknames that are better left stowed away within the confines of your relationship. Also, nicknames in general are just tacky. Really. If you want to have nicknames for each other, then at least stop infecting other people with your tackiness. Okay. Maybe traditional nicknames like babe and honey are fine when used in moderation. Just be sure that you don’t overdo it.
4. Too much PDA.
Woah woah woah there. Take it easy. If you’re out for a night in town with your friends, please keep the physical intimacy in check. No one wants to see you making out with each other for hours on end. Your friends might as well be watching a porn flick. Yes, it’s acceptable to hold hands while walking. But please, keep the physical cheesiness on the down low. You have plenty of time to play your games of physical intimacy when you’re home alone with no one to witness it.
5. You no longer set aside time for your friends and family.
Don’t be that couple that no longer spends time with friends and family. Stop canceling on your friends. Stop ditching family get-togethers. You should still be able to have lives outside of your relationship. It should be okay for you to expose yourselves to the outside world. Mingle with your friends and don’t leave them hanging. Make sure that your family knows that you still value their time. Don’t let your relationship take ownership of your entire life.В – Continue reading on the next page
6. You feed each other like babies.
What are you, 4 years old? If you’re old enough to be in a healthy relationship with each other, then you’re certainly old enough to operate a spoon and fork without assistance from other people. Stop feeding each other in public. It just takes relationship cheesiness to a whole new level. Also, the two of you look stupid doing it. Unless one of you is physically or mentally handicapped, it should be imperative that you feed yourself.
7. You can’t stop talking about each other.
News flash: it’s okay to talk about things that don’t concern your relationship. Your friends find it irritating when all you can talk about is your boyfriend. Your bros will hate it when you don’t shut up about your girlfriend. Diversify your range of topics that you can discuss with others. It doesn’t always have to be about your relationship.
