1. Sleeping In Separate Beds & Losing Intimacy
If you snore, or work wildly different schedules, then sleeping separately might be just what you both need. But some couples find themselves sleeping in different rooms for no good reason, and people definitely have opinions about that. “Many people feel very strongly about a couple sleeping together, and that sleeping apart creates distance and a lack of intimacy,” says Nicole Martinez, Psy.D., LCPC, in an email to Bustle. Do whatever suits your relationship best, but keep this in mind the next time you sneak off to the couch. If sleeping in separate beds works for you and doesn’t change the level of intimacy in the relationship for the worse, then that works, too.
2. Engaging In Copious Amounts Of PDA
I know, you’re in love and can’t keep your mitts off each other. But sometimes excessive PDA can be too much of a good thing. As relationship expert Zahra Barnes pointed out on Glamour, “Sometimes PDA can seem forced, and then it’s like, the lady doth protest too much. You know?” In other words, it can seem like you two are compensating for something.
3. Doing Everything Together
Everyone knows (or is) that one couple who is completely inseparable. And while it’s kind of adorable, it’s not exactly the most healthy thing in the world. “The goal … is to find a balance in which both members of the couple are happy with the time they spend together, maintain their outside friendships and family relationships, make progress towards their professional goals, and give the relationship a chance to flourish,” said Theresa E. DiDonato, Ph.D., onPsychology Today. So make sure you strike out on your own from time to time, for the sake of your relationship.
4. Spending Lots Of Time Apart
On the flip side is the couple who spends too much time apart.”Couples will bring this up and feel like their partner does not want them to be part of their lives, and it creates some very hurt feelings,” Martinez says. Try to find that happy balance between solo activities and date nights.
5. Acting Way Too Serious
Yes, you guys probably have bills to pay and an apartment to look after. But that doesn’t mean you should forsake fun, or refuse to joke around. Not only is this incredibly boring, but research shows that laughing together may be just the boost your relationship needs, according to Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Ph.D., on Psychology Today.
