10 Reasons Why Happy Couples Do Weird, Gross Things Together

10 Reasons Why Happy Couples Do Weird, Gross Things Together

When you see a couple, you can usually tell how happy they are just by the way that they look together. They casually hold hands, or hold onto each other, and the way they look at each other just makes you realize that they are truly happy.

What you see before you, though, is not what you would see if you saw these same two people in the comfort of their own homes. The same cute, happy couples are the ones at home sitting in their underwear on the couch shoveling fast food in their mouths, belching and sometimes spilling all over themselves.

These two people are the ones having farting contests at night in bed and squeezing pimples on each other’s faces in the morning before work. The point is that some of the happiest couples you see do some of the grossest activities you can ever image, and here’s why:

1. It shows that they are willing to do anything for each other

If your significant other is willing to pop a pimple on your forehead, and risk getting squirted in the face, imagine what else they would do for you? It may seem like a simple concept now, but when it comes to the ones you love, it can mean so much more.

2. It shows that they value secrets

I’m sure you wouldn’t want your significant other bragging to their friends at work about that farting contest you two had last night, simply because, well, that’s a little weird from an outsider’s view. These gross little moments are private, and something you two can cherish alone.

3. It shows how much they like to take care of each other

It really does take a special kind of love to do something so weird and gross, like clip your significant other’s toenails, for example. Any other task is nothing compared to that, and the fact that they are happy to do it should mean a lot to anyone.

4. It shows that you aren’t afraid to open up

If you are so worried about farting in front of your significant other, imagine what else you might be afraid to do or talk about. Everybody does it, and if they don’t take to it well, then you know they aren’t the right one for you.

5. It helps you to not feel the need to impress

Worrying about self-image can be really stressful, but if you are used to seeing you significant other use the bathroom with the door open, or walk around the house with a messy head of hair and a barbecue sauce stain on your T-shirt, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

6. It show’s that you aren’t judgmental

It can make somebody feel really uncomfortable if you laugh at them for letting one rip. Couples who do gross things around each other know that they can do that with out the fear of being judged by their partner.

7. It creates a more relaxing atmosphere

These kinds of couples can look forward to pretty much anything, and not have to worry about a burp, or any thing else being a negative factor in their time together.

8. It gives you something to laugh about together

When these odd activities get even odder, you two can be rest assured that you both can get a good laugh out of it until milk comes out of one of your noses.

9. It doesn’t ruin the intimacy

When things get a little bit more romantic, a nice tooter will not kill the mood for either one of you. Instead, you’ll be able to share a good belly laugh together.

10. It might strangely provoke intimacy

During a pimple popping session on one of your backs, just being in such proximity could bring you closer together in other ways. Which wouldn’t be strange for a weird, gross couple like you.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
