5 OBNOXIOUS New-Couple Habits To Break Before Everyone Hates You
If you want to avoid being a totally obnoxious couple and still have friends, here’s what you need to stop doing ASAP.
1. You ditch your people.
You take “only having eyes for each other” to a new extreme by rarely seeing your friends and family. If your people are starting to say things like, “How are you? We never see you anymore”, it’s a strong sign that you’re ditching everyone to hang out with Captain Wonderful.
Whether you end up at the altar or weeping uncontrollably into a beer, at the very least you’re going to need shoulders to cry on or bridesmaids and groomsmen in the future.
So keep up with your OTHER relationships. Many a friendship has been lost because someone ditched all their friends for their new relationship. Don’t be that person. After your breakup, you don’t want to have to deal with the fact that your friends have moved on too.
2. You ramble on and on about your new flame.
When you do come up for air and see your friends and family, it’s cool to dish a bit about how excited you are. Your people should be happy for you.
However, don’t over share and ramble on and on about how amazing Sally is and how you knew you were going to marry her the second you locked eyes over your Fettuccine Alfredo during your first date at The Olive Garden.
Don’t be the person who won’t shut up about your flame to the point that everyone around you wishes that you would go back to being incommunicado. Let other people get a word in. You care about them too, remember?
