On Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw called it ‘secret single behavior’ – those things we do when we’re home alone.When we move in with a partner, we’re forced to curtail these activities, or at least limit them to the times we know we’ll have the place to ourselves. And then there are the things we do in public and hope no one notices, ducking into private corners or furtively glancing around to make sure no one’s looking.
We like to think these things make us adorably quirky, but let’s be honest: they mostly prove we’re slightly weird and gross. And while we’re being honest, let’s admit something else: we love our weird, gross habits, and we’ll never stop doing them, whether we’re single or not.
Here are a few of our faves:
1. Carb-loading like an animal. Who needs utensils when you have hands?
2. Yanking our underwear out of our butts. Even Meryl Streep does it…
3. Peeking into every medicine cabinet. (Can we use your bathroom?)
4. Checking our teeth in any reflective surface. Personally, I carry floss everywhere.
