As much as we say relationships won’t change us at all, we’re usually wrong. We see lovey-dovey couples in movies, on TV shows and even in real life on Facebook, and we roll our eyes at them and promise anyone who will listen that we would NEVER do something so corny and lame. And then we meet someone we love, and we get in a relationship.
I’m not trying to sound bitter or angry, but people in relationships can do some pretty annoying things sometimes (please don’t take this too seriously). I know because I’m in a relationship, and I will fully admit to doing these things myself. Am I ashamed? Yeah, kind of. What can I say? Dating someone sometimes makes you do silly things. Here are the 8 most annoying things you’ll do when you’re in a relationship:
Baby Talk/Cutesy NicknamesBaby talk. It's... not ideal. In fact, it's usually downright annoying and can make your ears bleed. But that doesn't stop couples from doing it, just like it doesn't stop people from doing it when they talk to pets. Once, we were talking about how annoying baby talk is and suddenly I realized - I DO IT. I was mortified, but, whatever. It happens. And cutesy nicknames are okay when they're not things like "schmookums pumpkinface." Then things get weird. Source: ShutterStock
Fighting In PublicNo one likes the couple that fights in public. It's uncomfortable and awkward for everyone around them. But, at some point, you will be that couple who is fighting in public. And you will be annoying. Just don't do it too often and you're off the hook. Source: ShutterStock
Preaching To Single PeopleWhen I was single, my friends who were in relationships would say things like, "It will happen when you least expect it." *happy sigh* I would hold myself back from strangling them. Then, a few months after I met my boyfriend, a friend was complaining about being single. I heard myself say, "You'll meet someone when you aren't even thinking about it," and I wanted to slap myself. Us coupled up people sometimes preach to single people. I KNOW IT'S ANNOYING I JUST WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY I'M SORRY. Source: ShutterStock
Bringing Each Other EverywhereAfter you've been dating for a certain amount of time, you might start going everywhere together. And I mean everywhere. Your friends might start to realize that if they're inviting you somewhere, that means you're bringing your BF along. In all honesty, this is seriously annoying and you shouldn't do it. I refuse to be one of these people. Source: ShutterStock
Putting Kissing Pictures On Social Media At Cliche TimesYou know that every couple out there will post a cute pic on Valentine's Day. You know every couple will put up a picture of them kissing at midnight on New Year's Eve. But you do it anyway. Why? I don't know, it really is cute, okay?! To you, at least. Not anyone else.

PDAA little PDA, like hand-holding or kisses on the cheek, shouldn't be offensive to anyone. But a lot of PDA, like making out or eating each other's necks (I've seen it happen) is just annoying and unacceptable. Get a room, dudes. Source: ShutterStock
Saying Everything As 'We'One of the worst things is when one of your friends stops saying, "I think..." and starts saying "We think..." Don't talk about your boyfriend and you like you guys are one person who think all the same things and all that. It's weird. And annoying. Source: ShutterStock
Basically Turning Into Each OtherI have a friend who literally changes her entire self when she starts dating someone to be just like her partner. It is the WORST. It's like, get your own sense of self! Don't do this. Your loved ones will visibly cringe as they listen to you talk about the love of cars you never, ever had before. Source: ShutterStock
Have you ever done any of these things? Do you know anyone who does this stuff? What do you think is the most annoying? What did I forget? Tell me in the comments.
