There’s nothing that can make your new BAE ran away faster than seeing you doing something gross. For partners who are just starting to build their relationship, gross behavior is a big turn-off. On the flip side, if you’re long-term couples, you know how gross things become a normal part of your daily lives and sometimes, you’re thankful because they’re sources of unexpected delight.
8 Gross Things You Perfectly Understand If You’ve Been With Your BAE For Ages
8. You share personal belongings.
What’s his is yours and vice versa. You wear his t-shirt and he doesn’t have issues if you use his toothbrush (a la Mr. Grey’s Ana Steele).
7. You fart in each other’s presence.
Before, you’ll do absolutely anything rather than admit that that not-so-good smelling air that he smelled came out of your booty’s hole. If it was him who farted, he may deny it to death like you, too. Now, though, you just laugh about it, especially when one of you was unsuccessful in suppressing a fart while you’re both in a public place. Gross? Absolutely – but you couldn’t care less.
6. Poop convos are as normal as breathing.
You even discuss it if necessary while munching on snacks and meals. More importantly, you describe it to each other in detail without feeling sick or feeling the urge to puke.
5. You let him see you pee and vice versa.
Toilet time used to be sacred until you’ve reached peak comfort levels. Why let your conversation get interrupted just because nature (or the toilet) is calling you? So, instead of saying “excuse me”, you leave the door open and continue the convo you’re having. Others would probably judge you for doing so, but who cares? That’s how you roll and you’re not changing that unless his parents are guests in your apartment.
4. You know he is already awake by the way his morning breath greets you.
You return his warm “good morning” greeting by allowing him the pleasure of smelling your morning breath, too.
3. You can talk about your period (and maybe PMS) without fear of being judged.
You don’t exclude him about this often-avoided “girl thing” because you’ve been together for so long that you perfectly get each other’s thing. This is why he doesn’t resent you for the intense mood swings and decreased libido because he totally understands how you get affected by your monthly visitor (an unexpected but delightful benefit of talking about “gross” stuff).
2. You pop each other’s blackheads and pimples.
Remember the insane lengths you’d go through just to hide your pimple from him when you just started dating? This isn’t the case anymore now that you’re officially a long-term couple. Popping each other’s face issues is now a productive way to let the time pass. More importantly, you’ve developed high regards for each other’s gunk and dirt.
1. You kiss even if one of you is sick.
You couldn’t care less even if you just saw him spit his green phlegm in your kitchen’s sink. You don’t mind if you have to clean up after he pukes. Boogers and pink eyes don’t bother you, either, and it’s the same way for him. You’ll kiss and touch through sickness and health because after all, isn’t that what love is all about?
