Do you and your significant other share everything -- I mean everything? We're all for closeness, but some couples are a little too close, if you know what I mean. When you have NO boundaries, romance can take a hit. Maybe a little mystery isn't such a bad thing. Are you and your man guilty of any of these gross habits?

We're not talking the seriously scary kind of boundaries where one of you is emotionally abusive and tries the control the other. We're just talking the weird, mostly harmless stuff that makes everyone else roll their eyes.

Or, if you ask a dermatologist, it's something neither of you should be doing to your skin.

    "You gonna finish that?" is probably the best diet there is because it takes all of the control out of your hands. Sure. Go ahead. I wasn't enjoying that ice cream sundae or anything.
