Couple Goals!

People around me often admonish me for cringing and cribbing at those who are always into “couple goals.” I refer to those people who always have to wear matching dresses, ALWAYS, always have to do every single thing together, those who are constantly updating and publicizing their personal life on social media, I mean you don’t have to tell everyone about your 4 month and 29 days togetherness! Okay, even if you want to and even if you do, I am no one to judge you, but still you might want to leave those who don’t care about this. I don’t really mind what these people do, but sometimes, I get a lot irritated, and my friends do give me a long talk on that! May be I am completely wrong to judge these people, I think I am. I mean who am I to judge someone who feels completely liberated even when being with the same person 24*7, it might be too much for me, but not for others.

Okay now, I am digressing! You get the point, about whom I am talking. And you also get that I am frowned upon when I cringe and make faces at these too sweet couples.

But my point is, I have been noticing some of these couples and I have a very weird realization. Recently I had a feeling about a couple that I know, that they seem to look alike, so alike that for a second you’d believe them to be siblings.

What next? I did meet two people recently whom I thought to be brother and sister. But in actuality, they were a couple. It’s only good that I did not mouth my thoughts louder. But the similarities were striking!

And from there started a variety of thoughts and observations. And the more I observed the more I realized that some couples did look a lot alike! Not all, definitely not all, but some couples that I know, who have been together for a long period of time, did look so alike. It was a little bizarre to me. I mean matching dresses, similar phones, and similar profile photos weren’t enough or what? That you’d had to go and look spitting images of each other too? Okay I know this went a little too far. I am just kidding. This looking alike thing was kind of cute may be? Uuuuummmm. But as I said who am I to judge? 😉

But is it only me, or any of you think so too? Do you guys notice such couples, or is it just my mind cooking?

PS: My couple goal is simple. I want to be crazy, just as crazy as I am, but this time, it’s with him!

    1. Hahaha, yes, apparently when I was writing it, nothing came to my mind apart from those matching dresses, but later a long list broke into my mind.
      But yes,, sometimes it’s too much.
      And “Who him?” Well, it’s a goal, I might have not reached there, 😀

    1. Thanks Shantanu.
      It still does not bother me when they are so alike, or something, but what bothers me most is the lost individuality. When I see people so much in love, and all I can see is a couple, no sign of individuality, that’s when it bothers me. People tend to lose themselves sometimes, in someone else, mostly women. I don’t know how much of this makes sense.

  1. Moushmiiiii I cringe inside Everytime I come across these beings …..not judging but they are beyond my understanding …. I mean love and all is fine but what happens to individuality

    1. Exactly my point! Love is fine, matching everything is fine, that is okay. But I hate to see people losing their individuality among others. May be they are okay with it, but if ever that happens to me, I’d die every single second. I am not saying getting lost in each other is wrong or something, that insane hopeless romantic stuff is fine too, even for me, but the line needs to be drawn when I can seee no more of myself, even in me.
      This is all I mean when I say I cringe. apparently I did not make myself very clear in the post.

  2. Well, in all honesty, I really DO NOT really care about what the other couple does or how they behave!
    As long as two people, as a couple – understand, respect and love each other – Let them be! Why care? Let them find their happiness by wearing matching clothes or being mirror images of each other coz in all reality, we all have our different ways of expression and YES, we all have the freedom to be what we want to be.

    I’m not not saying that I do not agree to what you’ve said, but then, why bother losing your sleep on someone else’s love quotient! 😉

    1. hahaha You sound like my friends.
      And I know I am wrong to judge anyone, so I accept it. But yes, if at all at any point I do these things myself, I will come and share it here, so that you guys can laugh at my own double standards. 😀 😉

  3. True that who are we to judge. I think that we very easily feel the joy and love in a relationship when the sharing comes from a place of that deep love and joy, I often enjoy such shares from couples – matching dresses or not. And to those who use the phase of matching everything as their happiness – to each their own – I don’t have any responses to everyone. All of us have our own journeys of realizing our individual truths, and we go through different phases, no right no wrong.

  4. I love seeing two people so in love with each other but I hate it when I see them posting everything on social media. It’s one of the reasons why I don’t have an FB and other social media accounts.
    And yeah, I think when couples have been together for quite some time, they seem to look a bit alike! And that’s nice! But wearing couple tees or couple rings or whatever couple whatnots, it’s sometimes corny and sickening. Don’t get me wrong, but yeah, that’s how I see it.😉

  5. We look-alike, talk-alike, post-alike couples with couple-goals frown upon you jealous lot. But then, the love-alike that runs through our blood makes us smile at you and we post-alike more and more so that one day you will convert and be one of us-alike.
