10 Incredibly Weird Things That All Couples Do

10 Incredibly Weird Things That All Couples Do

When relationships first start, many people go out of their way to try and seem extra normal. However, after some time all couples end up with some pretty weird habits. Don’t feel ashamed – embrace your weird, fun love.

Check out 10 incredibly weird things that all couples do together.

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.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
