A Number Two For My Number One
We are creatures of habit – lazy, disgusting, unhygienic creatures of habit.
This fact is especially true when we’ve been in a relationship for a long time. You get comfortable and, as such, you start falling into patterns based on convenience and security. Been there, done that – a million times over.
Everyone has different levels of comfort with their spouse or S.O. Sometimes those boundaries are pushed over the years; sometimes they remain steadfast rules.
For example, I really don’t get how you can go “number two” in front of your partner all willy-nilly like you’re…I don’t know… making coffee and not emptying out your colon in a completely violent and smelly way. BUT LOTS OF COUPLES DO IT. My sister sees it as a badge of honor, which makes me wonder what her “gold trophy” looks like. Yikes.
On the other side of that coin, people freak the F out if their partner uses the same toothbrush as them, which I TOTALLY don’t get because that mouth has been in way more intimate parts than the bristles of your toothbrush. But to each their own.
On that note, here are the top totally normal – yet totally gross – things couples do. Are you guilty of any of these?
Heartache is the worst. Whether caused by family members, a friend, or a lover, it’s trying on the human soul for two reasons.
Firstly, losing the person in your life that made you happy and whole can make you feel like you’ve lost a limb. The experience can be downright traumatizing.
Secondly, there’s always that undercurrent of wondering what YOU did wrong, why YOU weren’t worthy of being loved. The whole process makes you question your self-worth. So you have this double-whammy, and it can be almost like going through PTSD.
As a general rule, the only thing that will fix heartbreak is time, talking, and tequila – the 3T therapy, as I like to call it.
But, according to these experts, there are actual proactive measures you can take to train your mind and emotions in handling pain like a champ.
Here they are (unfortunately, none involve tequila.)
I Saw The Signs
If you experience any of these signs, you may want to go see your doctor… or you’re just a parent.
