We recently took a look at a viral Reddit thread that asked, "What do you do with your S.O. that isn't normal?" These adorably weird stories sparked even more incredibly cute responses from our very own BuzzFeed Community! Here are just a few of the strangest (and sweetest) things shared:
1."My girlfriend and I will sometimes go into 'Leech Mode.' This involves one of us grabbing onto the other one and not letting go. It can strike at any time. In bed? Leech Mode. Doing the dishes? Leech Mode. In public? LEECH MODE. She once got me with it while I was on the toilet, and I’ve loved her ever since."
3."My partner and I do this thing where one of us will suddenly say, 'Accio!' and act like they’re pointing a wand at the other person. No matter what the other person is doing, they must then dramatically pretend like they're being pulled towards the other person. Then we’ll hug each other and kiss."
4."We finally had to have the discussion about how gassy he is, and how he holds it in when he’s around me. On our first trip together, he explained when we weren’t around each other there were 'all the farts.' I don't know why, but that phrase made me laugh ridiculously hard. So now it’s become our 'I love you.' We say it when hanging up or leaving for the day. Or just random texts throughout. It’s so gross, but I love it!"
6."Whenever one of us says, 'Fiddle de de de de' while doing a weird jig, the other has to stop what they’re doing, come over, and give the 'Fiddle de de de de'-er a kiss. No matter what. It started at Epcot in ‘06 when I got a 'Kiss Me, I’m Irish' pin. The best part is...I am not Irish."
7.My husband and I play 'The Game' anytime we go grocery shopping. Basically, I sneak a small item into the cart that's not on our list. The goal is for my item to make it all the way out of the building, paid for and all, without him realizing it was there. In 11 years, I have only won twice. It’s fun, and we usually just buy whatever I put in the cart, anyway."
9."My boyfriend and I have a rule that — if either of us says the phrase, 'I need attention' — the other must stop what they're doing and give the other five full minutes of attention. Most of the time it’s just for fun, but if I’m ever feeling down I’ll do it and he'll make a special effort to show me I’m loved. I am very lucky to have a man as wonderful as him."
10."We often pretend that we don't know each other while buying groceries. He'll always yell something like, 'MISS, PLEASE STOP TOUCHING ME, MISS?!' and tries to make me embarrassed. My go to is usually to scream, 'STOP PUTTING THINGS IN MY BASKET, SIR!' It's great."
11."No matter where we are — out with friends, together with family, on the subway, just sitting on the couch on a Saturday morning — whenever my husband randomly does a techno beat, I MUST fist pump in the air until he stops, and then we resume whatever it is we were doing like nothing happened."
13."My fiancé and I read bad fan fiction together...like, a lot of it. When we were at separate colleges, we would read one chapter together almost every night. We still do this whenever we have a night in!"
15."When my girlfriend and I get into bed to watch a film together, we always pretend that she's the cinema host who runs the entire theater. I will always make sad comments about how I'm the only visitor and, when the host brings snacks from concessions (aka, from the kitchen), she will charge ridiculous prices, so I tell her that I’ll never be back. She then tells me I can't do that because I'm in a contract. We always end up laughing."
18."My husband calls me random names that aren't my name. Over the past 11 years, I've been: Barbra, Margaret, Claudia, Dave, Susan, Claire, etc. I truly don't know why he does it, but he'll shout, 'Hey Beverly?' from another room and I know to answer because I'm used to it. He never fails to make me laugh!"
19."My boyfriend and I have the 'Red Light' rule, which we started when we were first dating. Basically, if you get stopped at the traffic lights, you yell, 'RED LIGHT!' and you have to kiss. It's very cute and random, especially if we forget about it for a little while and surprise the other person."
20."When I write a grocery list and leave it on the counter for any amount of time, my wife always sneaks up and writes things like ‘XL dildos,’ ‘a lot of lube,’ and ‘Vagisil’ on it. It’s funny every single time, and sometimes I don’t notice it until I’m in the grocery store. She has been doing this for 13 years."
21."I always pick up our cat and cock her like a gun, then pretend to shoot my fiancé. He will then dramatically act like he’s being blown away by the gunfire. It always makes us laugh, even though the cat is not as amused."
22."We invented 'Olympic Butt Slapping'. One time, I was laying on the bed and he said, 'hold still.' Then, he proceeded to jump over me WHILE slapping my butt mid-air. It has now progressed, and we have come up with some elaborate trick shots."
23."A common way for my partner to get around the apartment is to jump up and hold onto my back or shoulders, and she just stays there until she slips off. She calls it 'Koala-ing' me. The catch is that I never hold her, I just go wherever she tells me, but it’s HER responsibility to stay on."
