These Are The Proven Signs That You're In The Dreaded Doghouse With Your Other Half
One minute you're grand, laughing away at private jokes just like the lovers in Hollywood rom-coms do when suddenly, the next minute your bae has slammed the door and is giving you the silent treatment.
What. Did. You. Do?!
Looking back it all makes sense... You were the only one laughing. Your other half was giving you the cold shoulder and it hits you: You're in the goddamn doghouse again.
A survey of over 1,000 women conducted by OnePoll found that there's a few foolproof signs to look out for that will give you a clue of when you've got some serious making up to do.
These are the top 30 signs that you're in the doghouse:
1. Giving short responses such as “I’m fine” when he asks you about your day
2. Going to bed early to read
3. Rolling over in bed rather than spooning as usual
4. Not putting kisses on the end of a text message
5. Not responding to any gestures of affection
