15 Most Annoying Couple-isms

There are certain things couples do that make you roll your eyes or are just downright cringeworthy. Dear Wendy has made a list of the 15 most annoying couple-isms, or in other words, a list of behaviors to avoid if you don't want to be that couple.


I asked you to share some of your favorite time-wasting websites. I mentioned that one of my guilty pleasures is STFU, Couples, and since I get such a kick out of laughing at annoying couple-isms, I thought I'd share my "favorite" 15 real-life annoying couple-isms.

  1. Using Facebook status updates in lieu of personal emails or texts to each other.
  2. Addressing each other as "babe" nonstop. Call each other what you want in private, but let's stick to given names when we're around other people.
  3. Going everywhere together. Hey, honey, your boyfriend doesn't belong at your friend's bachelorette party. You can be apart for a few hours — it won't kill you.
  4. Feeding each other.
  5. Fighting in front of friends and family.

  1. Dressing matchy-matchy. It's fine for your wedding day and maybe Halloween, but that's about it.
  2. Sharing the same email address.
  3. Sharing friends' secrets with each other.
  4. Referring to each other as "my husband" or "my girlfriend" with people who have met them multiple times and know their names.
  5. Baby talk. Gross.

  1. Televising their wedding.

  4. Saying "I love you" at the end of every single phone conversation, even if they just talked to each five minutes ago.
  5. Walking with their hands in each other's back pockets.
