Each other: The boring things new couples find f**king fascinating

NEW couples are notorious for turning people’s stomachs with their displays of affection and zest for life. Here are five dull as ditchwater things they somehow find fascinating.

The moon

New couples will soppily gaze up at this big space rock together as if it contains the meaning of life. If, as in the song, the moon did literally hit their eyes like a big pizza pie it would serve them right, although be catastrophic for humanity.

Walks on the beach

If you’re not loved-up then a beach is just a place to get sunburnt while eating an ice cream and tutting at the litter, but for new couples they’re an oasis of romance. As they walk along with the tide lapping at their ankles, you just know they’re thinking of riding horses together while wearing billowing shirts. Sickening.

Going to a spa

Most of society has realised that going to a spa is just a hideously expensive way of doing nothing for a bit. However, freshly minted couples are so blinded by infatuation they’ll convince themselves that getting their toenails gently filed down is the height of fun, the deluded morons.


Normal people tend not to eat on a blanket in the park because of hassles like lugging a load of cold food there and seagulls trying to steal your potato salad. New lovers are in their own little world, so don’t even notice the dickhead aggressively playing with his dangerous dog nearby, or that it’s suddenly turned nippy after 20 minutes and you have to go home.

Each other

Even though they’ve only got boring anecdotes and dull facts about their life to share, new couples think their partner is the most interesting person on the planet. The interest normally fades when the novelty of shagging has worn off or they receive a flirty Tinder message from someone just as boring but a bit hotter.
