12 gross things couples secretly do but that brings them closer together
We always knew love was a little gross. But when we get really intimate with someone, that notion is taken to a whole other level. Your partner sees the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of you – and it’s not about your personality. While there are many benefits to getting close to your partner, sometimes couples get a little too close to feel comfortable.
When the phase of being in love is over, the inhibition threshold sinks in almost every relationship, and the couple let their true faces emerge. This usually brings disgusting behavior to light that one has often tried to hide before.
Loving the other means showing yourself who you really are and accepting your partner for who he really is. Relationships, therefore, come with some unpleasant things. It’s holding your hair over the toilet when your partner throws up, it’s removing your back hair and being open about the grossest things. But love is just beautiful.
Here are 12 gross things couples are secretly doing:
1. Burps and farts
The burping and farting usually start suddenly as soon as the phase of being in love subsides. If one of the two partners starts doing it at some point, the ice is broken and there is no holding back. But who says it’s bad? The burping and farting are completely natural mechanisms of the body that should not be suppressed for too long. So what’s in it? However, at some point, some couples regret that they fell below this inhibition threshold in the first place.
2. Check if the partner stinks
Your partner is soaked in sweat and is afraid that other people might smell his sweat. So you approach his armpits with devotion to check what it is. So if that’s not love
3. Leave the bathroom door open
Why close the bathroom door to your partner when you are in the middle of an important conversation with your partner? Going to the toilet in the company of the other is proof that one has achieved the ultimate comfort in a relationship. Some couples even go so far that one brushes his teeth while the other does his “big business”.
4. Share the towel
Many couples share the towel after showering. Perhaps there was no other within reach and what is included? You don’t get disgusted with your partner’s body. Many couples are just too comfortable to keep separate towels on hand.
5. Share the razor
In this case, too, maybe no other razor was within reach and you are already wet in the shower. You just quickly take your partner’s razor. She shaves her legs with it and he shaves his beard or other various places.
6. Squeeze out pimples
Squeezing the pimples on your partner is also one of the most normal things couples do. Either it is a pimple that sits in a hard-to-reach place and you need your partner to express it. Or you just like to express your partner’s pimples. Looks kind of funny.
7. Smooch before brushing your teeth
That too has to be love! Everyone knows it: in the early morning after waking up, you can sometimes smell not very pleasant from the mouth. For some couples, smooching before brushing their teeth is unbearable, while others don’t find it bad at all.
8. Remove the partner’s body hair
It is amazing how many places hair grows on the human body. We all need an extra set of hands every now and then to remove them, which many people enjoy doing for their partner.
9. Share the chewing gum
Disgusting, but very practical when there is the only one left and it has already landed in the partner’s mouth. But if you’ve just eaten garlic, there’s no getting around it! Many couples argue that they are kissing anyway. Then why not share the gum?
10. Pee in the shower if your partner agrees
We don’t secretly urinate in the shower, and most importantly, we never cross the line that we and our partner pee in the shower. Or does it? Well, it’s not that bad either. Of course, it has to be discussed first. If you clarify it beforehand, that’s no problem!
11. Coiling things out of the partner’s teeth
It is one thing to tell your partner that they have something in their teeth. It is quite a different matter to do the digs for him. But some couples share this task.
12. Talk about “big business”
Yes, some couples are particularly open. For example, they discuss the shape, size, and nature of “big business”. It could be the ultimate proof that we have a wonderful relationship. It might sound a little crazy, but this could be a love story we just feel good about because we can really talk about anything without being embarrassed.
