I am sick of single people who start to date someone and then turn into a combined blob-form of a person.
Am I alone in the fact that I just really enjoy going to bars? I am not going there to "meet someone" (although, yes, that would be nice) so once I have a boyfriend, why would I stop going out? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND PEOPLE!
And asking for permission? Sure, if someone is married then communication is key and seeing if its cool to hang out with a friend is just nice. I get that, I do. There are things to consider such as dinner together and catching up, but sometimes I think married people use it as an excuse: "Oh, I'll have to ask my wife." but really he's saying, "I'm going to tell you I asked her and make her answer NO". And when people are just dating? I think way less of you if you say you're boy/girlfriend doesn't want you to. And declining an invite because your sig other is busy? Even. Worse.
Also, when out, why must couples always be touching? Now, if you're a long-distance couple or maybe have weird schedules and don't see each other much, then yes, your wanting to be near each other is fine. But if you are always together (because you decline invites out?) then, when you do go out, is it really necessary to constantly be touching? No.
"We." OMG, don't use this for everything. Unless it was an activity that you both did, use half as many "We"s in your sentences. "We love True Blood!" Great, so do *I*. "We aren't too hungry tonight." Did I ask about your both? No.
So couples, regain some of your independence and resist becoming a blob of a couple. Your friends will realllly appreciate it.
