One of the biggest fights my boyfriend and I ever got in was over avocado. We were on a double date with some friends, and there was a piece of avocado from my plate that had fallen onto his seat while he used the bathroom. Long story short, he sat in the avocado, and I didn't warn him. Thus began a huge fight about why I wouldn't warn him he was about to sit in avocado. As you can see by that example, couples fight about dumb things all the time, and below, these tweets about the stupid things couples fight about just prove my point even more.
On Sunday, Jan. 21, the hashtag #StupidThingsCouplesFightAbout began trending on Twitter, and people went off. Oh, man, you guys, I'm serious. People delivered big time. You see, sometimes, I worry that my boyfriend and I are the only ones who get into these dumb fights about silly things. But based on these tweets, it seems pretty clear we're not the only ones who fight over the dumbest "problems" imaginable.
Read along with these dumb fights and prepare to feel very normal.

I have got to say, my boyfriend and I also always fight about which side of the bed to sleep on. Oh, and he hates when I watch shows without him. But then, in my defense, I'm, like, I wouldn't watch shows without you if you warned me which shows aren't OK to watch without you and which ones are! How am I supposed to know which ones are "our" shows and which ones aren't? Do I look like a mind reader?! DIDN'T THINK SO.
But, as I said earlier, the best part of reading these tweets really has got to be feeling a little better about yourself and a little more confident in your relationship! Rest assured you and your partner are not the only ones getting into fights about dumb, silly things. Everyone is. In fact, I would go so far as to say those people who aren't fighting about dumb things are the ones living outside the norm.
