Winnie, who blogs under the username Winnie Blues on Instagram, asked her 36,000 followers what their “oddly specific” ick was.

Some of the examples given by Winnie fans were so peculiar and peculiar that they made those who read them laugh.
“I can’t look at my partner when he showers. He looks pathetic,” one woman wrote.
“When a guy runs to a bird and it doesn’t fly away,” another said.
“Bald head sweaty and slick,” added a third.
There were issues with men using umbrellas, calling a radio station just to chat, the idea of a man being locked out of his house and when they get a telemarketing call and have to say they’re not not interested

There were issues with men using umbrellas, calling a radio station just to chat, the thought of a man being locked out of his house and when they got a telemarketing call and had to say they weren’t interested.
Another woman argued that seeing someone running for a bus gave her the ‘ick’ in a more general way, which was quickly approved.
Sleeveless puffer jackets, dark blue bedroom sheets, people preaching about saunas and men sitting cross-legged on the floor also made the cut.
“I tried so hard not to laugh in the Uber on my way home reading this,” one man replied in the thread.
“I will never forget the bird that hunts one,” said another.
A third said: “Definitely get the telemarketing thing. Like pushing a pair and hanging up”.

Typically triggered in an instant after witnessing some sort of stopping behavior, “the ick” turns physical attraction into revulsion with a nasty laugh, rude remark, or off-putting feed.
But psychologists say the phenomenon is often a self-defense mechanism to protect against rejection, fear of intimacy or commitment, and relationship failure.
“Most of us want to feel safe with a partner, trust them, have open communication and share interests.” says the post.
“However, if an unexpected behavior suddenly puts you off, ask yourself what could happen to you?”
Relationship counselors explain that attraction is a “seesaw phenomenon,” where something that draws you to someone today may be the very thing that pushes you away tomorrow.
Traits take on different meanings as a partnership progresses in that people you initially find fun and carefree can often turn out to be irresponsible and reckless in larger situations.
Seven “Just Not That In You” Relationship Red Flags
* Spending a lot of time on their phone
* Never make plans to meet
* Never ask questions about you or your life
* Avoid introducing yourself to friends
* Always say they are busy
*Failure to maintain eye contact
* A nagging doubt or the gut feeling that something is wrong
But experts warn that sudden reactions of disgust like “the ick” that appears “out of the blue” often have deeper explanations.
Certain behaviors may trigger a long-term unresolved problem for you or reflect a challenge in your life that is causing you subconscious stress.
If you find yourself suddenly and regularly sick, psychologists say it’s best to stop and ask yourself if you’re protecting yourself against an apparent red flag.
“‘The ick’ isn’t always triggered by little things, it can be red flag behaviors like being rude to waiters or constantly talking about you,” the post explains.
“Or do we get ‘the ick’ because we engage in self-sabotage and, in turn, jeopardize our chances of a successful intimate engagement?”
