Walking Side By Side. I mean, really.

Have you ever seen a couple walking next to each other. I mean right-next-to-each other. That may work for some couples, but not me and my wife. Maybe it's because I'm curved on the sides, or maybe I'm hot blooded (not kidding. My body temp is pretty warm most times.), but for sure if we walked completely next to each other, I would trip and fall, I just know it. My wife and I take personal space and personal safety seriously (even though we are in love), and don't walk right next to each other. Heck, I've even seen couples clutching each other in a pseudo side embrace and walk next to each other. I hope they don't stay embraced when each other goes to the bathroom - gross.

LOL, I always watch couple as they walk. No, I'm not mental, I just like seeing people and how they act towards each other. Personally, I like handholding.

I need my personal space too. I have no idea how people hug and walk at the same time. I am completely baffled by it.

I like to walk with enough space between us so we don't run into each other.

Remember when people used to walk with their hands in the back pocket of their boyfriend or girlfriend? I am so glad people don't do that anymore.

I find it cute and I'm always cold so if he takes the initiative to pull me in closer and walk together I wouldn't object. I could see the craziness of it or even the trip hazards of it, but why would it be in your head that two people side by side could walk into a bathroom the threshold would block them and separate them from their love bubble!

My wife is the romantic, touchy-feely type. She doesn't want any space.

I like side by side without touching. This clumsy girl doesn't need any help falling over thanks.

I remember in high school I actually had a guy claim to break up with me because I didn't walk with a rhythm. Who does that?

haha, I only walk super close when I am "not sober" so I don't fall down!
