    That's fine. Your partner is an important part of your life. Why shouldn't they be in your bio?

    That's creepy. You shouldn't define yourself by who your partner is.
  1. 2. Feeding each other food.

    That's uncomfortable. You're grown ass adults. Feed yourselves please!
  1. 3. Sitting on the same side of the table at restaurants. (Let's assume it's not because they're sharing a plate of food or something.)

    That's fine. Sometimes you just want to be close to the person you love.
  2.

    That's weird. Sit across from each other so you can have a proper conversation.
  1. 4. Attending all social events together, and never doing anything apart.

    That's not healthy. Having some time apart is important.
  1. 5. Ordering for your partner at a restaurant. (Typically with heterosexual couples, this plays out as the man ordering for the woman.)

    That's fine. As long as the other person is cool with it, it can be a romantic gesture.
  2.

    That's obnoxious. People should order their own food and drinks, period.
  1. 6. PDA in front of strangers. (At a park, in a restaurant, at a movie theater, etc. And let's assume it's nothing TOO R-rated โ€” cuddling and kissing.)

    That's gross. Save it for when you're in private.
  1. 7. How about PDA in front of friends and family members? (Again, let's assume it's limited to cuddling and kissing โ€” nothing overtly sexual.)

    That's still gross. No one wants to see that at Thanksgiving dinner.
  1. 8. Getting matching tattoos, or tattoos of each other's names.

    That's a big yikes. It's tacky, and what happens if you break up?
  1. 9. Telling each other the secrets that their friends have confided in them.

    That's fine. Your partner is like an extension of you โ€” it's fair game to tell them the secrets you hear about.
  2.  
    vote votes
    That's not cool. If your friend told you something and asked you to keep it private, you shouldn't tell your partner.
  1. 10. Asking your partner not to be friends with their ex or see them socially.

    That's fine. Exes should always stay out of the picture anyway.

    That's a red flag. You shouldn't try to control your SO's social life like that.
  1. 11. Wearing matching or coordinating outfits.

    That's a bit much for me. Even in a relationship, you should still have your own identity.
  1. 12. How about couples who do matching costumes on Halloween?

    That's fine. It's just one night out of the year anyway, and some couples costumes are pretty funny.

    That's still weird to me. You're two separate people! Wear different costumes.
  1. 13. Posting long, passionate social media tributes to each other on an anniversary.

    That's annoying. Say those nice things to each other privately. The world does not care about your anniversary.
  1. 14. Using cutesy pet names for each other in public.

    That's icky. Some of that lovey-dovey stuff is best kept private, TBH.

And finally...

  1. 15. Canceling plans with friends to go hang out with your partner. (Let's assume you already see that partner regularly โ€” it's not like a long-distance situation where they only have one night in town.)

    That's bullshit. If you already have plans with friends, you should keep them.
