When you’ve been with someone for awhile, you’ll inevitably start to know each other so well that you can practically communicate through telepathy. However, if people are having a hard time seeing where one of you ends and the other begins, there might be a problem. Even the closest couple in the world should still be able to maintain their individual selves, so if any of these apply to you and your significant other, it may be time to reassess things.

  1. You accidentally dress the same… often. It’s really not on purpose — you both just look really good in green. Is that so hard to believe?
  2. You share grooming tools. Using the same shampoo and toothpaste is fine, but there’s never a good reason to share a toothbrush, razor, or deodorant on a regular basis. Some things should just be yours, and yours alone.
  3. You have a joint Facebook page. This is like telling the world that you don’t have separate opinions or interests anymore because you’re a couple now, so why bother pretending? No point in taking up more room on the Internet than necessary, right?
  4. People seem surprised to see you show up at an event solo. It’s almost as if just the left side of your body sauntered in and sat down across from them. Where’s your other half?!
  5. For some reason, you can’t eat food he doesn’t like anymore. Your taste buds and digestive systems have synced up so flawlessly that if he has too much dairy, you’ll both be on the toilet for the rest of the night.
  6. You share a Spotify account. Music preferences are one of those things that are highly personal. No two people in the word like all the exact same songs, so if you’re cool with listening to all the same music as him all the time, and you don’t even have a guilty pleasure song or two that you know he would hate, you officially no longer exist.
  7. You gave yourselves a couple nickname. You have no idea how hard your friends are rolling their eyes when you start to slip your preferred couple nickname into conversation. You aren’t Brangelina, and you don’t get to choose your own nickname. That’s not how it works.
  8. You shower together every day. Not that there’s anything wrong with showering together once in a while, but every day? Do you really need to shave your armpits while he lathers up his junk? Some shower activities require privacy.
  9. You refuse to watch an episode of anything without him present. Sure, all couples have a few shows that they absolutely must watch together. But if you stopped watching The Bachelor just because he won’t even stoop to hate-watching it, you’ve gone too far.
  10. You’ve stopped saying “I”. Literally every time you refer to yourself, it’s “we”. We can’t come to your party. We loved that movie. We were so sick after eating at that sushi place. Everything that happens to you, also happens to him. Not as adorable as you think it is.
