27 Gross Things All Couples Do

If you’re reading this, and in a relationship, you’ll be pleased to know that at the end of this piece you will not feel alone. We win fact aim to reveal the number of things you do in your relationship, that you feel are just plain weird.

Behind closed doors, you’ll often wonder if the gross habits you and your partner will partake in, are just plain weird. Well you’ll be pleased when you see the list, and a state of relief will sweep over you when you realise no, you are not alone.

Checking your noses for bogeys

Yes, we know you all do it. “You’ve got a bogey”, which is followed by dragging your partner closer, and tilting their head back for a closer inspection.

Checking Ears For Wax

Following on from the bogey, again checking another orifice for yet another gross substance, is apparently more common than you think.

Getting that sleep out of the eye in the mornings

Waking up next to your partner is a wonderful thing. You look lovingly into their eyes, and pull a nice stringy piece of gunk from their eyes. It’s the norm.

Popping spots at will

A fundamental trait of any relationship. In my experience girls in particular get freakishly excited at the thought of a nice juicy whitehead.

Smelling each others armpit to discover if you smell

“Do I smell?” the words we dread when in a relationship. Following a good sniff you just don’t want to reveal to your partner that they do in fact reek. So a face is plastered on, and a shake of the head is forced. You’re lying though.

Conversations whilst urinating

The sign that you’re in a long termer. Casually leaning on the door discussing your plans for the day whilst your missus is having a quick wee became a regular occurrence in past experiences.

Some people are somewhat freaked out however…

Urinating in a shower used by both

Again, with the peeing, another long term relationship habit. You’re dying to go, you’re in the shower, you know it’s disgusting. Ah it’ll be right.

Sharing a towel

I will not lie, in the beginning of a previous relationship, the though of using a towel in which my partner had dried her vagina with was not a tempting prospect. However fast forward the clock and the fear had evaporated.

Sharing a toothbrush when one forgets theirs

This is one I an not say is something I can relate too. Even in a long term relationship, the thought of a shared toothbrush is just a step too far for me.  Even the thought of which is making me feel a little queasy.

Wearing an old t-shirt because the smell reminds you of them

It can be drenched with sweat, but you’ll still wear it. More often than not however it has a hint of a favoured perfume/aftershave. It’s one of the more nicer habits on our list.

Checking teeth for scraps of food

We’re all descendants from primates, so this one is somewhat ingrained into our DNA. “You’ve got a bit of beef in between your teeth chick”.

Sharing a spoon for dessert

“Ooh yours looks nice”. A dilemma faced by many whilst having a meal perhaps. Quite hypocritical that I would not condone sharing a toothbrush, but I’d gladly whip some chocolate fudge cake off a spoon dangled in front of me.

Licking a finger and rubbing food off your face

A trait admittedly adopted by your mother, but can be brought into a relationship. “You’ve got a bit of summert on your face”. The thought that your face was now covered in dry saliva then had to live with you for the rest of the day.

Showing them nipple hair 

Nipple hair, exists. You’re lying to yourself if you read this and just dismiss this entry as weird. We’ve all had some amusement at the expense of our other halves stray hair on the nipple.

Pulling out a weird hair growing on their back

It’s weird how this weirdly strange shout is actually so relatable. It’s also weird that you do actually sprout the occasional stray hair on your back.

Checking out that pain surfacing on their arse and confirming its a spot

“There’s something on mt arse and it’s killing”

Come on then, let me check it out.

Again, one more for the long term relationship. They pull pants down to reveal what is rather a disgusting spot. Now you either go one of two ways. Advise to pull pants up and life returns to normal. Or you can take  the following step.

Squeezing the spot on the bum because you’re fucking fearless.

You instead lunge for the anomaly and begin to squeeze, as your partner squeals like a pig at slaughter.

Inspecting a foot for a potential verruca 

It appears that the answer you give is pretty much gospel. It is you and you alone that caries the final verdict on what this strange growth on your partners foot is. Nine times out of ten you’ll just say “It’s nowt”.

Peeling skin

Admittedly the new trend, it’s a close rival to popping spots. The rule is you simply have to leave any peeling skin alone, and allow your partner to take care of it. If not, are you even a couple?

Clearing up sick after a few drinks/on deaths door

This can either be a pain in the arse, or endearingly cute.  The first scenario, your significant other consuming that much alcohol that you have to rub the back and clean up the resulting vomit, not so cute. The significant other developing an incredibly sickening virus and you tending to their every need, including again cleaning up vomit, cute as they come.

Kissing each other in a morning before you’ve brushed your teeth

In the opening days of the relationship, there’s usually a mint slipped in. As the last thing you want to do is frighten them off with your morning breath. A more frequent practice in a long termer though, as you just stop giving a shit.

 

Having sex – shower or not

What can I say. When the moment takes you, the moment takes you, and nothing is going to stand in your way.

Helping them gouge out an ingrowing hair 

This painful procedure is one to dread.

“It’s just a spot, it’ll go away”.

But alas, ultimately there is no escape. You’re pinned down and the hair is removed.

The naked dance

Yep, the naked dance. We’ve all been there. Every single one of us. You’re getting out of the shower, James Brown “I Feel Good” is on, you partners in bed. You’re absolutely going to treat her to a private screening.

Communicating via ugly faces 

It’s an essential part of any relationship. No words spoken, silence in the air. You just instinctively pull a face.

Blowing your belly out to display how bloated and pregnant you are

Usually performed after a meal or takeaway.

“I’m stuffed”

You then proceed to demonstrate to your other half just what this entails, and you force a huge exhale which gives the impression you are pregnant, and psychologically challenged.

Wearing disgusting underwear, even when seducing your other half. 

No pressure to crack the CK’s out. The confidence I must have had, to give it a go in my Space Raiders undergarments.

Spending the full day in bed with him/her sweating, eating shit, and fallen madly in love.

Yep. We’ve all been there, if you’re in a relationship in the 21st century. You lay there festering, but there’s nowhere you’d rather be.
