21 Signs You're the Salty One in the Relationship


1 When you’re mad at your bae, this is what your phone looks like.

2 You’re extra offended that they don’t know why you’re offended.

3 Your partner figuring out how they messed up is more complex than they ever imagined.

4 Your lips are now deadbolted when it comes to passwords.


5 That is, if you haven’t just changed them all already.

6 You get really creative with showing that you’re miffed as hell.

7 Even the slightest annoyance turns you into a passive aggression artist.

8 You can get very particular about your word choice.

9 Anyone dating you really learns to read between the lines.

10 Though sometimes, you’re not in the mood for subtlety.

11 You’ll find multiple ways to withhold affection.

12 And you’ll leave no social media platform unturned.

13 You can’t help but sometimes be freshly mad at your S.O. for something they did a while ago.

14 Or just from a dream where you see them flirting with somehow who isn’t you.

15 Your partner can’t help but laugh at some of the things that irk you.

16 And objectively, your clap backs are definitely entertaining.


17 Though, when the tables are turned, you can’t handle the salt yourself.

18 Even your apology has got a strong hint of sour.

19 And you’ve found yourself in some salty stalemates.

20 By now, your partner knows that food can usually help mend things.

21 JK. You really thought a pizza would be enough? *BLOCKS FROM PHONE.*
