The phenomenon of “the ick” can stop a blossoming relationship in its tracks, and the reasons range from clapping when a plane lands, to not washing socks regularly enough. The term “the ick” was first coined in an episode of TV show Ally McBeal.

Dating expert Hayley Quinn explained, “It’s a dating term that means you get a sudden cringe feeling when you have romantic contact with someone: and become almost immediately put off by them.” If things are going well, then suddenly the way they eat a sandwich makes you run for the hills, then you are experiencing ‘the ick'”

Some users didn’t find the video as awkward as others. “I do the same, but without the bag for even more money saved,” said one user. “Dude will have more money than all of us. Very smart man,” said another.

“‘The ick’ is[,,,]a very strong gut reaction, either to the mannerisms of the person or the way they behave,” said relationship counselor Gurpreet Singh in an article in Cosmopolitan. “It could be that you’ve picked something up in their value system that’s completely different from yours; the way they laugh or tell a joke might completely irritate you, or it could even be just their look or smell.

“There are a whole variety of reasons why ‘the ick’ develops, but it’s a deep feeling that this person isn’t somebody you want to be with.

“Feeling ‘the ick’ doesn’t mean that the person you’re dating has done anything wrong,” adds Gurpreet. “They’re just the way they are and it might just irritate you.”
