5 crazy things couples do when they become comfortable with each other

Most times, these signs point to the fact that the love and affection in your relationship is growing.

How does intimacy affect relationships?

Many times, what happens at this stage is that the partners get far away from the awkwardness that is usually common at the beginning of the relationship.

Each partner knows what the other likes already; they also know the boundaries of each other's temperaments. In short, they know all about each other.

This is actually a very good stage to be in, as it suggests that the relationship lasted long enough for understanding to blossom.

What are the crazy things that couples might do at this stage? [Emphasis on the word crazy]

1. Let out 'gas' in presence of the other

Some partners actually believe that if the other has not done this in their presence, he/she is still hiding something from them.

Crazy, yeah? But it is actually a gauge for closeness and intimacy.

2. Play fighting

This actually needs no explanation, except to say that it does not happen without a certain deep level of intimacy.

3. Ridiculous nicknames

This is really reserved for really playful, close partners, and most times, the crazier the nickname, the likelier it is that the partners are very intimate.

4. Jokeful insults

Surely Nigerians in relationships must understand this very well.

"See your head like Badagry coconut." We all know this is not really an insult, It is a word of endearment.

5. Brutal honesty

Simply because by this stage, you both are too close to be mincing words on serious matters.

You just say it as it is.
