Do Tell: What Would People Be Shocked to Know About Your Relationship?

Do Tell: What's Your Secret Couple Behavior?

Everyone has secrets, but what about those things that people would be surprised to know about your relationship? I'm not talking about skeletons in your closet; I mean behaviors or actions that one wouldn't necessarily assume of you in a couple. You've all divulged your secret single behavior, so now it's time to blab about your secret behavior with your significant other. Perhaps you sit down to a candlelit dinner every night, or maybe you snore so loudly that your boyfriend has to sleep in another room. Whatever it is, do tell!

I am getting some good ideas here. We used to say "Doppie Maken?" in public places because that's a naughty Dutch question which means Wanna F$#@&? and no one here speaks Dutch. Then laugh like a couple of kids. I know it's silly but my husband gets irritated by the CSI shows I watch. One time he purposely sat through a whole week of them without saying much. At the end of it, he exclaimed, "it's all in the fibers, they'll get you with the fibers." Now as a joke we say to eachother, it's all in the fibers. Sometimes we plays this game in the morning. He gives me a big hug goodbye and I smell his skin, and run my fingers in his hair. But then he also reeks of some new cologne which he knows I can't stand. Then I take a guess which of the stupid 20 bottles he has on and I'm ususally right. He continues on with the tradition. Once in a while I pour a shot of water and a shot of vodka. Whoever gets the vodka will control the house for a while. Somehow I always get it and it drives him insane.

We call each other critter, gently (even though I get accused of not being gentle) bite each other's noses and fart on each other. Sometimes, when we sleep, we turn to our opposite sides so our butts are kissing, and we just fart all over each other. WOW, sorry if I grossed anyone out.

My hubby and I have a few silly things we do together, but the one thing that sticks in my mind the most is how he loves to sniff my neck....almost like a little puppy dog would sniff around outside while looking for a place to go potty...lol It really makes me laugh. We also fight for covers at night to see who can pull the most, and who ever can wrap up in the whole blanket first get's to keep'em...or so he thinks. I always end up getting the covers in the end.(miss my babe now!)

We used to make up really annoying cutesy names for eachother as jokes, but then one day I made one for him and it stuck. I won't say what it is, but it's on the same level of sickeningly-sweetness as something like Schmoopy or Sweetiepoo would be. We also talk like lolcats a lot when we're alone. K thnx bai. *embarrassed*

This is amazing. Like a few others, my fiancee and I also play WoW. I became intrigued as to why he played it so often and gave it a try and haven't stopped. Another thing we do...I have a bear I got when we started dating three years ago and he named it Bumz. We make crazy stories about the bear, sometimes he runs away with a top hat and suitcase, some days the bear is an alcoholic, the bear also eats tea and crumpets in bed, and he has a time machine and goes back and puts dirty dishes in the sink. There are tons more and every single little thing that is a special secret couple thing is essentially what makes us, us.

We make up stories about the stuff our cat does while I'm away at work or school (because we live in separate apartments and the cat stays at mine). It's always something ridiculous and no one else would understand it, but it cracks us up.

My fiance and I call each other every morning before work to say good morning. It makes our days brighter since we don't live together and can't kiss each other goodbye in the morning before heading off to another day at the office...or in his case the boat shop. ^_^

My boyf and I always call each other "friend." Like "Hello, friend. How are you friend? You're my friend." And we also say "I like you" instead of "I love you" sometimes. We also talk about boobs a lot. If I ever see a really remarkable pair of boobs, I'll call his attention to them, or try to sneak a photo of them with my camera phone. He does the same for me, sometimes. It's hilarious! He's a really nice, smart guy, but sometimes he'll say dumb things like "Nice boobs" to me, and often I want to call him out for it, but can rarely find the words. I also berate him for eating cookies for breakfast, but will turn around and have chips myself.

It's kind of weird, but we have this funny voice we both do when we are together that makes us laugh, and we also have nicknames we call eachother that are from his native language (Spanish). Sometimes after listening to a song we will have a conversation but we will sing everything along to the tune of that song (which is weird but also makes us laugh). We like to lay in bed together and look at things on the laptop together, like people's profiles on myspace or funny websites or even popsugar! my bf and i cook together, and he ALWAYS chops the onions for me, because he knows how much I hate chopping onions. He recently moved far away, and now we are in a long distance relationship :( and so I bought an onion chopper because I had become so spoiled!! And chopping onions will make me cry....

we do a lot but the main things is that we do everything together. From cleaning, cooking to grocery shopping. We had a long distance relationship for so long that now we love being with one another constantly. If you think about it, you aren't with that person for 8-12 hours a day while you are at work or while you sleep. Time is precious.

HAHA! I love these! My boyfriend and I will "argue" over who's turn it is to do the dishes, and we start telling the other why we don't deserve to do it, and it usually ends up with some crazy excuse, which we usually ignore and end up splitting the dishes anyway. He LOVES to watch me trip, which I do on a daily basis since our dog throws her toys everywhere. When we had the same phone plan, we would send each other voicemails instead of text-messages, and it would become sort of a game of Tag. He loves it when I lay on his back (him face-down on the couch, and me on him face-down) and we just watch TV or something. We also grapple a lot, we are huge MMA fans, so we pay around and put each other in arm bars and head locks. I talk in this weird baby/chipmunk voice at him and our dog, and she goes nuts. She loves it, he pretends to hate it... but he knows I'm in a good mood when I do it. We almost always role-play. And everynight before going to sleep the three of us cuddle in bed and we'll play. Our dog knows that's her special time to be a spoiled brat, because well kiss her and all that stuff. Ok, too long. Sorry girls!

We have a lot of obnoxious private games we play: 1) We have a complete vocabulary of secret code words to use when out and about. For example "T.Y.L." means "there's your look" when I see some guy with, oh, I dunno, a purple mohawk. 2) I squeeze his hand whenever a pretty girl walks by, so he won't miss his opportunity to check her out. Likewise he squeezes my hand whenever a handsome guy walks by. 3) We play "smooch buggie." Our kids got us started on this one. They used to play "punch buggie" and punch each other whenever they saw a VW Bug. I didn't like them punching each other, so DH and I started kissing every time we saw a VW. If it's a red VW, then we french kiss. 4) Every few months, we have "beauty day" ... we sit around in bed with facials, biore strips, and teeth whitening strips and do other kinds of grooming rituals on each other. 5) We email each other all day long, and DH uses a different pet name in each email. He gets really creative. As the day wears on, the pet names get more and more outlandish. Monkey-bunny. Smoochy-cuddle-bumpers. Sweetie-peepie. Etc. I don't think he ever uses the same pet name twice! It has been embarrassing though, when once or twice he accidentally sent an email meant for me, to a coworker instead.
