My partner says it's just because we're very familiar with each other and people are trying to find an explanation that fits.

What do you think? What would you say when this happens? Would you just shrug it off? Would you feel creepy?
How about......
"Naw, but because our kids are the same ages we seem to be ending up a lot in the same places and being good friends. Maybe we are 'rubbing off' on each other?"
Then grin and walk away
