14 Things Healthy Couples Do


1. Share the shower.

When your relationship advances, you eventually begin taking showers together. You scrub each other’s backs and sometimes even shampoo and condition each other’s hair. Those brave foot-massaging gals might even scrub the guy’s feet with a body scrub.

2. Pop each other’s pimples.

Girls, you know our men notice our blemishes and vice versa. Sometimes you even search each other for those pesky clogged pores and pop them for the one you love. Some see it as gross; others see it as helpful. Just be sure not to punch one another when one really hurts!

3. Make fast-food runs at 2AM.

My boyfriend and I love going to Jack in the Box for tacos at 2AM when we can’t sleep and want a snack. Boyfriends and girlfriends do this as a sort of bonding exercise. We also do it because we’re super-hungry.

4. Binge-watch TV shows.

When one person falls for a TV show, we get our significant other into it. Before you both know it, you’ve watched all eight seasons of Dexter on Netflix together

5. Watch the same TV show while you’re in different places.

You’ll both be watching a show (maybe he’s at work and you’re at home) and text each other back and forth—sometimes you’ll even call—to assure you ARE watching it.

6. Occupy certain positions and sides of the bed.

What couple doesn’t have designated sides of the bed? Couples understand their love’s need for a quality night’s sleep. In my case, he sleeps on the right side closest to the alarm and I sleep on the left a lot of times against the wall with a pillow to snuggle with when it gets too hot to snuggle with him. In the morning he’s usually down on the floor or halfway there, as I am now taking up all of the bed.

Height/length has NOTHING to do with this! Physics in a sense no longer applies as your tiny petite body has now managed to push the bigger mass of a man nearly over the edge.

7. Use the bathroom together.

This happens when one is in the shower and the other has got to go. I’ve met a lot of couples who simply don’t care and will look at each other, but it seems more of them have my situation to where the person in the shower turns away but will still talk with you.

There is the no taking of dumps in front of each other, however. That’s just a big NO.

8. Snuggle.

Guys, be honest: You like to snuggle with your girl as much as she enjoys it. And girls, let’s be honest: He can’t do it all night.

When you fall asleep while snuggling there is always a point in the night where he has either sneakily removed his arm or you both wake up and move at the same time; but when you’re rolled facing your sides, there’s usually a leg or two touching each other. This shows that they love you and love snuggling with you, but it just isn’t prudent for that night.
