Every couple loves to be cheesy in love, but nobody ever admits it. If you ask me, I’m never going to accept that most of my social media posts are indicative of my PDA for my partner. But essentially, they are. I’m not the only one. Yes, that’s my biggest excuse. There are cheesy things a couple does when in love and that makes them go “aww” for each other and nark others.
But what do we mean by a cheesy couple? The dictionary meaning of the word “cheesy” is cheap and low quality. When we are talking about a cheesy couple we mean they indulge in cheap, corny and sometimes over-the-top behaviour in public (in our times most often on social media) that often makes their affection for each other look a bit fake. But the fact remains, while some end up doing things in public, in private, there are cheesy things a couple does that they would never admit to. These are absolutely cliche couple things but most end up doing it.
10 Cheesy Things A Couple Does In A Relationship
No matter how much they would deny it, all couples end up doing cheesy things in a relationship but that does not mean they actually have cheesy relationships. Every relationship is different but these corny things couples are prone to do. We are in no way being judgmental about it. We just want to say we find these 10 things really cute, but a wee bit cheesy. So what are those things?
1. Stupid, mushy pet names
From Janu, Koochi pooh to honeybun and sweet pumpkin pie, the list of mushy pet names that couples in love give each other is endless. These pet names follow no grammar whatsoever and are purely random in nature. The people in love find their heart turning pinkish when their loved ones call them in these pet names while the rest of the world feel nauseated.
One newly-married couple called each other Gapshi-Gapshi we have no clue why, but they thought it was really cute. And by the way, the couple used this cheesy nickname in front of all. So imagine the stunned silence at the dining table when their relatives were visiting and they called each other Gapshi-Gapshi. The laughs happened behind your back, for sure.

2. Go matching – matching
From matching tee-shirts to matching phone covers, desktop and mobile home screens – the new age couples in love find many ways to show the world how they love having a similar taste.
They also wear clothes that complement. For instance, if she is wearing a maroon salwar suit he would go for a maroon shirt. Colour co-ordination is the cheesiest thing most couples do. Some carry it off really well and look great doing that but there is no denying that this is a cheesy thing to do.
3. Social media PDA
From sharing romantic posts to a truckload of selfie updates, there are many ways couples jump onto the social media bandwagon of PDA. They dedicate social media updates for each other, share cute romantic quotes and poems on each other’s walls.
The cheesiest thing couples do and pull it off well too are writing that emotional happy birthday or happy anniversary wishes with a bundle of photos and with cringe-worthy emo lines. They are there sleeping next to you, wake them up and wish them, you could be thinking. But no, coupes do love doing cheesy things, don’t they?
4. ‘Good night’ calls before going to bed every night
Now, this is not only a cheesy act but a mandatory responsibility when in a relationship. Even if you are out late for girls or guys night out and came back drunk as a dead rat, you must never forget calling your honeybun before going to bed.
There are cheesy things a couple does in a relationship and this is probably the cheesiest one.
We have seen one partner stay up till late waiting for that treasured “good night” call when we could be thinking “arrey yaar go off to sleep”.
But the good night is a good night, no matter how cheesy it could sound.
5. And saying ‘I love you’ before hanging up
This is also a must-do for couples in love during the initial years of relationship, unless they are in a fight. And no, even a grumpy person can’t ignore this love ritual when in a relationship.
This is something all couples do. For some time in the relationship for sure. As the days go by the cheesy part is taken out though. “I love you” is taken for granted it is not repeated as often.
6. Talking like babies
Ah, the most stomach-churning cheesy thing that every couple in love does! ‘Ale mele baby ko kya hua?’, ‘You are my wooghly googhly sweetie’ and so on. No matter how cool the couples behave, everyone does it. And even if you find it annoying as a single person, you are going to do the same once in love!
7. Random anniversary celebrations
From love-versary, month-versary, kiss-versary, hug-versary, the list of random anniversary celebrations continues for couples during the initial few years of their relationship. Along with this come to the social media posts with anecdotes of their special day.
8. Singing romantic songs to each other
In parties, on Facebook and Whatsapp, during functions, in whispers people in love sing lovey-dovey romantic songs to each other. This especially happens when they are drunk and don’t care a hoot if they are pathetic singers.
9. Saving random memories
From tickets of the first movie they have seen together, gift papers, the first souvenirs or love notes from the past – everything that smelled like romance is worth saving for people in love.
This is a cheesy thing most couples do all the “cheese” comes out of the cupboard when they are de-cluttering.
10. Brag about each other
You gotta show the world when in love, and that’s why couples like to talk about their partner with pride in front of the world. It’s a wonderful cheesy act for the lovers and a quite annoying thing for others. But it makes the person who they brag about feel wonderful and appreciated.
