Relationship Phenomenon ‘The Ick’ Explained on Carolina A.M.

It's that cringe feeling you get when meeting or getting to know someone. 

Have you ever gotten the ick?  It’s that cringe feeling you get when meeting or getting to know someone.  It’s a relationship phenomenon that can be difficult to understand. We may not know why it happens but when it does, we definitely know.  It was first coined by the show Ally Mcbeal and more recently in Love Island. (Leanne dumped Mike saying she’d caught “the ick”.)  It’s typically something about another that just annoys you, like their chewing of food, they way they laugh, their bad jokes, it could be a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g!  It doesn’t mean that person has done anything wrong,  it’s just not the person you find yourself wanting to be around.
