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.

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List
