Biggest Fight, Littlest Thing
Unlike other 20-something couples who include each other's handles in their Twitter bios or exchange overly-cutesy messages on their Facebook walls, Claire Meyer and Alan Linic have crafted a very different shared social media experience. Their Twitter handle, @WeFoughtAbout, documents all of the things they -- you guessed it -- fight about, despite the fact that (as their Twitter bio states) their relationship is going "really well." By documenting the things that trigger their small arguments, Meyer and Linic expose the humor present in most quarrels between people who care for each other."
[@WeFoughtAbout] is a reminder that it's OK to disagree with the people that you care about, and that most of the time the things that trigger our fights aren't really worth fighting about," Linic told HuffPost. "It's a way to make ourselves accountable for our crazy moments and also to show off the side of a relationship that is rarely seen until it's over or going badly." And that's exactly why @WeFoughtAbout is so much fun to follow. It feels both deeply personal and deeply relatable. "Mostly the Twitter has taught me that everyone is wrong and irrational from time to time," said Linic. "There are things that we all fight about and there are disagreements that are unique and special to each couple."
Here are a few of our favorites:
Alan used the wrong noodles.
I was going to post a photo on Instagram but Claire beat me to it.
Alan suggested that his gal-pal replace me at an event I couldn't make.
Alan called me "man".
Slacker has been in trouble for not getting the wheat noodles and not WHOLE wheat noodles. People don’t really fight about big things you stop and look at it and say, “Are we really fighting about this?”
Steve says that psychiatrists say that it is good for you to air out your dirty laundry. It is definitely working for this couple.
The grittiness of pears...that was the cause of the last fight at Lil D's house! We are on this making baby food kick. Peeling, pouching and processing and then I said it was too gritty to give our baby my wife got pretty upset and gave it to her anyways.
It's Biggest Fight, Littlest Thing! What is the little thing that caused a huge fight for you?
Generally we fight over how much we love each other and want to spend more time together to the point of being upset when the other one falls asleep before the other gets home. He once got upset that I didn't text him enough through out the day. He also got mad at me for someone else having a crush on me. I get mad when he doesn't call or text if he is going to be late even if I am asleep.
