Being in a happy and fulfilling relationship is one of the greatest things in the world. However, just because you're madly in love, you needn't shout it from the rooftops. Most people can't stand those couples that can't keep their hands off each other and profess their undying love for each other literally every ten minutes. Here are 7 signs you're are one of those disgustingly cute couples that everyone finds annoying.
You can't stand being apart. Have you heard the song “Where You Lead” by Carole King? While following your sweetheart wherever they go may seem romantic, you do need to spend some time separately and have your own friends and hobbies. And please stop texting or IMing your significant other when you're spending time with your friends, and waxing poetic about your sweetheart to everyone around you.
There's only “we” when it comes to the two of you. When one of you gets invited somewhere, you show up together even when the other wasn't invited (which is very rude, by the way, especially when we're talking about a wedding). If a friend tells one of you a secret, it means they've automatically told it the other. You have to stop being a package deal because it really annoys people.
You wear matching clothes. When couples wear matching clothes, it's not cute, it's gross and creepy. And couples T-shirts are even worse than color-coordinated outfits. There's probably only one exception – couples Halloween costumes are acceptable, just don't go for anything too cheesy and predictable.
You don't know when to stop PDA. A little PDA, such as hand holding or a brief peck on the lips, is fine. But if you can't help making out in public, don't be surprised when people think you're gross. Some displays of affection are better left behind the closed bedroom door.
Too much inside jokes. Inside jokes are something that brings your closer together, we understand that. But when you're literally talking in inside jokes and no one else understands what the hell is going on, you need to tone it down.
Gross nicknames. Some nicknames such as baby, babe, sweetie, sweetheart, etc. are actually cute and funny. There's nothing wrong with using them in public. But there is a whole lot of really horrible cringeworthy pet names that should only be used in situations when you're alone with your bae (ahem!). Do you call your significant other shnookums, plum cheeks, cutie patootie, boo-boo? Well, if you do, stop!
Baby talk. Talking in baby voices to each other isn't cute, or sexy, or romantic, or whatever you think it is. When you're alone, you can do whatever you want, but when there are people around, please talk like adults.
