HOW WE’VE STAYED TOGETHEROn January 15, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Group hug! Hi, guys, and welcome to the Internet! This week, Rosie and I are gonna tell you how to have the perfect relationship.
– Mm Don’t get us wrong. Rosie and I don’t believe we have the perfect relationship. – Yeah, we do! Thanks for watching. Make sure you like, comment, and subscribe, and we will see you next week. I think the key to a perfect relationship …
– Yes – … is communication
– Agreed – So I’m gonna communicate with you …
– Yes – … some of the issues that I believe … any of the niggles …
– That’s one of THESE videos – … I believe we can overcome
– Okay, I’ve got some issues of my own – You’ve got issues of your own?
– Yeah – Have you actually?
– Yeah – You sounded like you’ve been thinking about it for a while!
– I mean, it’s not like I wrote them down in my notes or anything. It’s fine – Okay, then, Rosie, why don’t we start with you?
– Okay – Before we do,
– Yeah – I want to be the example of true maturity
– Okay – Um, this is all about how you handle possible negativity/criticism – Yeah, because you can’t expect to, even if you have the perfect relationship, you can’t expect to not, you know, find obstacles
– Yeah – … in your path that you got to overcome.
– A hundred percent – Hurdles, as it were – And it’s all about being able to listen
– Mm – … LISTEN to the other person – Yeah I heard you
– To be able to take on board … Thank you. It’s because we’re communicating well
– Yeah – To be able to take on board any proper niggles that they might have
– Yeah So Rosie, please hit me with it, and don’t hold back, because I can take it I can take it!
– Okay, I’m gonna refer to my notes. Okay, so … Which one do I start with? Um … That’s just me implying that there are many
– No, I got it.
– Okay So it’s actually something I was actually gonna apologise for – That’s a brilliant way to start. Let me just say …
– I’ll open with apology. Let me just say, if you’re able to apologise
– Yeah – … even if you don’t necessarily believe it. (Me.) … um, that really does prove that you’re an adult. Alright, so I wanted to apologise for something, and I thought you could explain it to, um, the audience.
– Okay And I’m not talking about today, I’m actually talking about a different time. You’re like, in the morning, you’re like, “Rosie, get up.” And I shout at you.
– Mm hm – And you’re like, “No, get up, please.” And you have to be like a parent. And then I shout at you. And then, in the morning, I’ve forgotten, because I was asleep. and you have conversations with me in my sleep.
– Mmm – So I am willing to apologise for what I do in my unconscious state. – Because you don’t …
– Mainly because I hold my hands up, I can’t control it, and it has nothing to do with me, and …
– Right. So that’s you not taking responsibility for you actions …
– Yeah – You’re not taking responsibility
– Yeah Okay, now that you’ve apologised, why don’t you hit me with the list? Okay, I’m gonna tell you a story, okay?
– Okay Once upon a time, there was a girl called Wony, okay?
– Mm hm – … who is in love with a girl called Bony
– Mm hm – That’s you
– Yeah – Okay, I’m Wony
– I got that, yeah – Okay
– Yeah – Okay. Wony used to ask Bony for flowers all the time. Maybe some strong hints here and there. “Just want some flowers” And Bony said to Wony, “Don’t ask me for flowers because then, if I surprise you with flowers, you’ll think I only did it because you asked me, when actually I was gonna do it anyway.”
– Mm hm – Right? So Wony stopped asking, thinking, “Any day now. Get my flowers.” Okay? And the moral of the story is that Wony never ever got her flowers, whether she asks for them or not. – Rosie …
– The end. Also, I’d like to say something else. I want to add something to the story I don’t even care about the darned flowers any more It’s been so long – Rosie …
– You’ve defeated me. You’ve won.
– A watched pot never … – Okay, it’s “A watched kettle never boils”. You’re thinking of …
– A watched kettle never boils. – Yeah
– Alright? The meaning of that means, if you watch me … … I won’t get the flowers. But if you didn’t watch me,
– Hm? I still haven’t got the flowers – Life is nothing but a waiting game. You have been blessed in many areas. Number one: Number two, in your world, you are the flower. Flowers die, okay?
– Yeah – So why would I go kill a bunch a flowers and hand them to you, and say, “I love you. Here’s a flower that is already dying, and will die.” “Please home it for two days.”
– You know what, I see your point, so why don’t you just buy me some jewellery? Do you know what makes this flower situation even worse? I actually put out a strong hint on Twitter about something. It wasn’t flowers, it was something. It’s not really expensive or anything And then I was like, “Rose,” I literally put “Strong hint” on Twitter, and then I was like, “Rose, did you see my hint on Twitter?” You were like, “No” I was like, “Oh, I hinted at something on Twitter.” She was like, “Okay.” Didn’t look. Still hasn’t seen it. I’m verified, too! Oh yeah Totally random, thought about … This is the other day, thought I’d bring it up. Do you remember when we went to the dentist, right? We see the same dentist, so I went in first, right? And he didn’t talk to me the entire time. It was just awkward. He just stared at my, like, yellows, right? My green-and-yellows. He just stared at my pearls, right? And like, didn’t speak to me. I went out And then Rose went in and went out, right? And then afterwards, Rose went to me … we were, like, walking out the dentist’s. We were both done, all paid, leaving the shop And Rose went to me, “Oh so you told him you’re a Youtuber.” And I went, “What? No?” And she went, “No, yeah, he must have asked what you did, and you said you’re a Youtuber.” I went, “No. He didn’t speak to me” “He didn’t speak to me the entire time. It was actually real awkward, I just laid there like …” “… you know?” And Rose went, “Oh.” And I was like, “Why?” And she was like, “Cuz I walked in, and he was like, ‘Oh so you’re a Youtuber’.” She was like, “We had a really great conversation about it.” He clearly had a favourite! And he lit … just allowed it to be so awkward with me. Like I just laid there like … And then like, it was so silent. Like, I was like, I gave up. I was just like, “There’s a TV above me, and I’ll try and watch it even though it’s on silent, and he’d keep looming in front of my face, like …” Like looking in. You know when they loom over.
– This … The funny … Right, the funny … Why? What do you talk about?
– The funny … First of all … Two things. First of all, that TV hasn’t even got subtitles. So you were literally watching a silent TV
– A silent TV And then his face, like … You’re wa … trying to watch, right? And then do you ever … I get this at opticians, so bad, and dentists, right? So bad When people come close to my face, I laugh for no reason. And so, like, he’s looking into my mouth. I’m trying not to laugh.
– Yeah And then his face just goes … You’re watching TV and he just goes … So relating this situation back to marriage, um It’s an issue because clearly that dentist had a favourite. And sometimes as a couple, especially if you’re in the public eye, people will have their favourites. This does cause tension between Rosie and I. – You’re not allowed favourites! I don’t even pick a favourite colour, really, cuz I feel sorry for all the other colours. I don’t pick a favourite season cuz I feel sorry about all the other seasons, and I worry they’ll spite me. – D’you know what?
– Like if I’m like, “Oh I love summer” I’m worried like, – D’you know what, Rosie?
– … winter will get me. Yeah? – You’re saying you don’t pick favourites.
– Yeah – That’s bullshit.
– Why? – Because everybody, whether they’re …
– I’m bisexual and I literally don’t pick favouites. – Oh so you think it’s a choice? No Everyone has secret favourites, okay? So my favourite …
– Yeah, clearly the dentist – … out of you and me is me. My favourite out of Fifth Harmony was Camila Cabello. I’m not ashamed of it. I still love Fifth Harmony, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having your favs My favourite out of Cammie and Shannon … is no longer relevant, because they’re not together.
– Whisper in my ear. So that’s the way you’ve got to see it. If people say, “Rose, you’re my favourite” “Rose, you’re my favourite.” “Rose, YOU’RE my favourite.” “Ro … Rose, you’re my favourite.” It must be tough, but it’s just the way it is – D’you know what I hate about you?
– Go on. – I’m really attracted to your arrogance. And like … I know you’re joking right now,
– I’m … I’m only joking – I know you’re joking, but like, that’s what, this is wh … This is what I like about men.
– Really? – Yeah. Sweeping statement, but anyway, um … What was I gonna say? How does anyone in the world cope when you’re at the optician’s and not laugh? It’s funny
– Are you … Are you still on that? Rose and I were talking the other day, right? And I had a … what’s the w …
– Communication – And I had an epiphany, right? And I realised that I’ve done something in my life, right, and not realise at the time what it meant, at all And Rose had to explain it to me, but I still needed explaining in several different ways
– Okay So …
– What is this? – Rose and I have both lived through a millennium.
– Okay, yes – Right?
– Mm hm – If you’re younger than me, and you didn’t live through the millennium, you’re not gonna live through one, because how many years is it? Gonna be another million? Mill-ennium Yes?
– No – No? Yeah, it has to be a million years, it’s …
– A thousand years. A thou … Why’s it called millennium? Hang on, wait.
– Wait. – Wait.
– Wait. Siri, what is a millennium? One thousand. So why is it called millennium? Why is it not called thousan-um? That’s so stup … Can you … Guys, I know I’m bad at math, but please, you’ve got to agree with me. Why would something that has a thousand years in it, would you call it a millennium? Stupid. Also, how come you said the millennium was only two thousand years? Oh, because it was the year 2000, right? So … but how do we know how old the earth is? – The way we know how old the earth is,
– Yes – … is someone cut it in half, and looked at all the rings around it. I thought it was like ladybugs, with the spots. – What does that mean?
– You count the spots on a ladybug, and then that’s how old it is – No
– Yeah – Ah, I’m glad that didn’t work out when I had acne as a teenager cuz that would have been an inaccurate answer – So we’ve lived through that, right?
– Yeah – No one else will live through that if they didn’t already live through it, right, unless in the, in … who’s watching the video. Unless our videos are still around in a thousand years. Is that correct? – Yeah, which they will be. – Obviously And so what I wanted to say is, some people have never been to the Millennium Dome. or know what that is or know that that happened And I find that really sad
– It … What is it now? – Something else. – What is it now? – It’s Wembley Stadium.
– No, it’s not. What is the Millennium Dome now? – Not, no longer the Millennium Dome. – Have you been there?
– Why couldn’t … – … after the Mille …
– No, I only went there wh … the Mille … – You don’t think we’ve been to the Millennium Dome?
– Oh my god, is it the O2 Arena? There it is! There have been times – and I mean this in the nicest, most polite, most constructive of ways – – I doesn’t wanna hear it, to be honest – Just don’t say it
– … where I have to … – Just doesn’t say it
– … I have to question
– Doesn’t say it – I have to question …
– Why? – … you …
– My hair? Is that what you was going to say? My hair? Is it ’cause of that ponytail that one time? This one time?
– No … it’s several times – Is it now?
– No, it’s not. – Every time it’s … we have gone …
– I know I’m nearly thirty, but I think I can rock it – … we have gone on a dog walk – Yeah. I don’t care
– … and there’s been such little care and attention – Zero care
– … to the way that your hair has been constructed that I begin to question the respect you have for yourself – You’re with me, and you’re fucking lucky to have me because people called you minger square at school, and Rose …
– Hey! It wasn’t at school! It was one time by a stranger and his friends
– And you’re gonna … – You’re gonna question MY hair choices? – I don’t think the hair was more of a choice. I think that what’s happened is when you go out for a dog walk, you think, “Ah, screw it. You know what, it’s just a dog walk. I’ll look however I wanna look.” – I have days when I don’t brush my hair. I work from home
– But, but, but, but … – And I only go outside – cuz I’m a Youtuber – if I have to So I’ll walk the dog, I don’t give a shit about other people’s judgement – The other night, you went out in a dressing gown,
– Yeah – … a nest, …
– Yeah – … and dolly shoes. – Yeah. You’re right, you’re so offended by the dolly shoes that …
– I’m so offended by them, I can’t even begin to tell you …
– You missed something else. I wore pajama bottoms with dolly shoes – The dolly shoes. That they need to go … Now, hon, hon …
– If you don’t know what a dolly shoe is, Dolly shoes are just like, like a, like a ballet slipper kind of thing, like, it just slips on your foot – These were posh ones that you wore with your nest which have creatures in it – Right. They’re not posh, they’re from Primark, okay?
– Okay, but Rosie … – Primarnia
– … as an ensemble, it was confusing – It was …
– It was confusing – Let me explain it to you
– … if not antagonistic – Okay, let me explain …
– Okay? – That is clearly antagonizing someone I wear the slip-ons cuz they’re quick to slip on.
– Yeah – So I don’t have to undo it and do it …
– Do you care about, like, aesthetics? – No.
– No. Okay. – I don’t care what other people’s opinion of me
– That’s good. Now, that is good, not caring what other people … Do you care what I think, though? How about your partner?
– Not really
– Not really? Okay – No.
– I just thought I’d communicate that issue with you I’m glad that you’re willing to meet me in the middle
– I’m not. – No, I know, that’s my point
– Yeah – Okay
– So … – So compromise, guys. It’s always a good …
– I’m never changing. – A good … So she’s never changing – No. You love me for me
– She’s headstrong … … and I love her for that
– Look … Yeah … Well, We went from a period of our life, right,
– Mm – … when I didn’t realise I was intolerant to gluten. And I used to wake up every morning smelling like wheat.
– Yes – Like Weetabix
– Like Weetabix – Yeah, and a strong one.
– I actually said something to you – D’you know what, you’re not the first person I’ve been with who said to me … In fact my first boyfriend was like, “You smell really strongly of Wheetabix in the morning.” – It was, it’s real … I was, I’m like …
– I didn’t realize I was gluten-intolerant I don’t, I no longer smell like Wheetabix
– It’s weird – The wheat’s gone. I don’t put it in my body, it doesn’t secrete out of my body Another niggle-naggle is sometimes you complain because every time you go to hug me or kiss me, I pull away prematurely – Yeah
– Right, I’ll tell you why. – Why?
– Every time without fail, – Yeah
– … that you approach me for a bit of intimacy, – Look at me,
– … you …
– … you’re happy to go along with this sentence? – … you actually hurt me sometimes – You’re too close
– … because of your clucksy nature, you go, you go like, “Oh hey, babe.” I’m like “Oh! … That’s a really nice touch there.” You just manage to hurt me somehow, like you accidentally bash me, or you nibble me too hard, or, you know, you get some of my hair caught in your zip It just, it’s always just slightly uncomfortable, if not actually … – I love you
– I love you, too – No, I love you
– I know – Kiss me, then
– Okay Ow Owww I go along with everything. I’m a very easy-going person. I think you’d agree It annoys me so much that I would rather you just didn’t Mm hm? – Wony?
– You mad at me? – I mean, no
– You mad at Bony? – Not really. I just wish you’d listen a little more Mm? Mm. Don’t you do it Don’t fucking do it … [inaudible] Don’t you do it Boop Boop! Okay Owwww The abusal
– “Abusal”? – The abuse of your baby voice to get your way is not only very transparent and obvious, – But people fall for it – And THAT is what’s annoying I do every time, even when I know what’s happening
– Do you actually? – Yeah, maybe I do
– Do you fall for it every time
– Yeah, I do, actually. Yeah – You does?
– Yeah. D’you know why? ‘Cause that’s love You do my head in … but I love you – Does I does your head in? – No.
– No. Doesn’t, doesn’t – No, you doesn’t
– No, I doesn’t
– Don’t nib me On tour, Rosie realized that her baby voice
– Mm hm – … severely manipulated Dave, our tour manager
– It worked spectacularly – Every. Single. Time. – Yeah
– All she had to do was … – He pretended it didn’t
– “Dave, can I gets a dwink before we does the meet-and-gweet, Dave?” – “Dave, can I has a Starbucks before we goes to the hotel?” – And Dave goes, “Rosie, it’s funny that you think it works on me.” And then Rosie’s like, “Cuz it works every time, Dave.” And he goes, “Hehehe”
– Let me tell you what Dave did, right? Now, we got given presents on tour, which was absolutely amazing. – Awww
– And we were packing in our bags
– Mmm – But our bags started to get overweight, so, um, we were flying every day on tour to the next place we were touring to Um, and so we had to be quite careful, so we started to, sharing out all the gifts we’ve been given, so we could take it home with us.
– Mm hm – And there was one thing that I got given that was very … It was kind of, uh I think it was taking up a lot of room, was the problem. And I was like, “Dave, I can’t leave it behind.” It was a care bear, pink fluffy onesie. And I was like, “I can’t leave it, Dave. Someone gave it me as present” “Can’t leaves it.” Dave was like, “It’s too big, duhduhduhduhduh.” I was like, “Please help me find a way to bring it home” And I left it by him, right? And he went, “We’ll see” And then later, I noticed it was missing. I noticed it was gone, when we packed up, and I thought, “He’s got it, he’s got it.” I didn’t say anything. When we landed at our destination, I was like, “Oh, has you seen my care bear onesie? Doesn’t know where it went” He was like, “Haven’t seen it. Haven’t seen it.” And in our show, we had a postbox, didn’t we, Rose? A mailbox. And he’d hidden it in there, and then he, he got it out and went, “Look, Rosie. Look what I found!” And he was like, “It’s the care bear onesie!” Yeah, like it didn’t work. Way to charm …
– Those two are best friends. – We make each other playlists
– And … Yeah Dave, I doesn’t have a dad. Dave, you my dad. – He’s only seven years older than me.
– Is he? That’s … nine years older than me, though, so he could be my dad – Did it take you that long … … to add two to that?
– Yeah – Minus two. No, wait. Honestly, I know we joke about it, but the amount of times
– Mm Our LA lesbian squad – Mm, have hooked up with each other
– … have hooked up with each other actually get ridiculous
– I know! – I mean, I drew it the other day. I drew it on paper. Sent it off to Camden. She was like, “Accurate. Accurate. Accurate. Accurate.” And I was like, “Amazing. Guess what?” Alright guys, make sure you like this video if you think that it was actually constructive, and we will see you this time next week. – Muah!
– Muah! – Bye!
– Bye! As an afterbit, does you want to be like, actually be lovey? No!
