If I'm walking hand in hand with my husband and we come up to a lamp post (or any similarly shaped object) I always feel the urge to make a loop round it him then release so we end up holding each other's other hand.Originally posted by RoshiStar
When I am walking with someone I care about...or like I can't let an inanimate object come between us...ie, we cannot walk on opposite sides of a meter, lamp post, bench, hedge...ANYTHING. I go OUT of my way, albeit covertly to walk on the same side of the object as the friend.....WHY DO I DO THIS???? I feel if I don't then some horrible thing will happen to the other person and it will be my fault...CRAZY I KNOW....I no longer do this, although I still think of it EVERY time an object separates me from a friend
How did I "kinda" kick the habit??? My ex-boyfriend, the love of my life, is the most understanding person in the word. He accepted/s everything about me.... he would go OUT OF HIS WAY to make it as difficult for me as humanly possible to be on the same side of things....he would make loops around lamp posts, weave throught cluttered sidewalks and generally make walking with him a public hell, until I just gave up....
I love that guy! But I think that should be considered a SUPREME quirk...don't you all agree?
I also have to be the last person to say, "Goodnight I love you..."
It's not something I have to do, but I always want to do it.
