Have A Good Feeling About Dinner

| Sweden | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Popular

(We are preparing dinner, my boyfriend is in charge of frying some tofu.)

Me: *slightly worried something will get burned* “How is the tofu doing?”

Boyfriend: “It’s tofu! It’s fine!”

Me: “Well, I didn’t mean emotionally!”

Boyfriend: “…You’re such a tw*t.”

Should Have Stopped Reading You A Long Time Ago

| NE, USA | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Popular

(When I read a book, I get into it, and think about it all day. I get mad, sad, what have you and it sticks with me all day. At this time, I was reading a book about a very toxic relationship. My boyfriend and I are napping on the couch after a long day. I tend to “sleep talk” when I’m half asleep, as I’m not sure if I’m still dreaming or awake when this happens…)

Me: “I should’ve left you a long time ago…”

(I realized after I said it I was awake and said it out loud. I look over to my boyfriend who has a look of horror on his face.)

Me: “I’M SO SORRY! I WAS DREAMING ABOUT THE BOOK! I SWEAR!”

(We still get a kick out of it every time we talk about the things we say in our sleep!)

Caught In The Middle Of Your Own Argument

| Sweden | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Popular

(We are about to go to sleep, still chatting a bit. My brain is sort of out of it.)

Me: “Do you think people that live in the middle of long countries often get identity crises?”

Boyfriend: “What?”

Me: “Because they are Northerners for those who live in the South of the country but Southerners for those who live in the North. So they don’t know what they are.”

Boyfriend: “What?”

Me: “Nobody ever calls people “Middleners””

(Pause.)

Boyfriend: “Okay, sleep time!”

A Show About A Blind Man Accessed By A Machine That’s Deaf

| San Jose, CA, USA | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Popular

(My boyfriend and I usually stream Netflix on his tablet while having dinner; tonight we planned on resuming Daredevil as we had gotten partway into Season 2 before getting sidetracked by life. I’m making a sandwich in the kitchen when I hear him say, slowly and clearly: “DAREDEVIL.” I look over and see him holding the tablet in front of his face.)

Me: “Wait… it has voice command?”

Boyfriend: “Yep!”

Me: “So you can talk to your device?”

Boyfriend: “DAREDEVIL.”

Me: “And it listens!”

Boyfriend: “DAREDEVIL.”

Me: “That’s so cool; I didn’t know it could do that.”

Boyfriend: “DAREDEVIL.”

Me: “It’s like we’re living in the future!”

Boyfriend: “DAREDEVIL.”

Me: “Okay, it’s really ruining the moment here with the not working.”

Boyfriend: “DAREDEVIL.”

Me: “Seriously?”

Boyfriend: “DAREDEVIL.”

(He ended up typing it into the search box after all.)

They Need To Make Up

| Portland, OR, USA | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Popular

(It’s a hot day. I make the 30 minute walk from my house to my boyfriend’s. He decides to make me lunch while we chat.)

Boyfriend: “You look tired. Did you not sleep well last night?”

Me: *frowns*

Boyfriend: “Or are you just tired from walking in the heat?”

Me: *frowns more*

Boyfriend: “…”

Me: *still frowning*

Boyfriend: *pauses* “You’re not wearing makeup, are you?”

Me: “Nope.”

Boyfriend: “I’m sorry!”
