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 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.

We role play. Sometimes I'm the inexpirenced virgin and he's the knowing college professor. We have some of the best times role playing and being different people with each other.

We quote our favorite movie and TV show moments to each other all the time, usually The Office and Napoleon Dynamite. We also have songs that we sing to each other, all goofy and from the 80s or 90s. We're both huge movie buffs and we love to do movie marathons on Sunday when we have no other plans...always in bed and always with a huge bowl of popcorn. He makes my lunch every morning for work and toasts me a bagel with strawberry cream cheese. And if my favorite Starbucks mug with the hearts on it is dirty, he'll take it out of the dishwasher and hand-wash it just so I can start me day off with it. I love my husband♥

sometimes when he leans in to kiss me, i duck away, or vice versa. it's very childish and i'd be embarrassed if anyone saw it, but it's also the cutest thing.

There are a lot of strange little things we do... First of all, we are both clean but MESSY. Our bedroom (before he moved away for a job) was always just a giant pile of clothes. Now we compare over the phone how messy our rooms are. Also, he sleeps best when he is on his back and I have an arm and a leg thrown over him, with my head on his chest (basically I'm on top of him). We are greatly amused by each others ahem bodily functions. There are sometimes contests involved. We often drink really girly drinks together, like daiquiris. I think he likes them more than me. Our best sex is usually at 5am. I have no idea why. I don't even know why we wake up at 5 am so often! We almost always shower together. And there is nothing sexual involved. We wrestle bigtime. Someone usually gets hurt. We have tickle fights, too. But my favorite thing that we do is lay in bed watching movies, cuddling. We get totally wrapped around each other and he usually plays with my hair or rubs my scalp. It is so comfortable. I always tell him he is the most comfortable person I have ever known and that must mean that we are meant to be together.

I miss my boyfriend : / We spent all morning laughing and chasing each other around the house being silly. We have times where we'll wrestle and spank each other and he'll tickly feet like crazy. We'll play fight, I'll beat him a million times on my back then pretend to get scared and run away and he'll catch me in his arms and hold me down and kiss me. We lay in bed all day goofing around like kids and making jokes. We watch animal planet and day dream about our future together. I love him, he's the best. I can't wait until we live with each other!

We're both obsessive about cleaning -- a perfect day for us would be cleaning the entire place top to bottom, then reorganizing everything ;D
