10 People Who Uncovered Disturbingly Gross Secrets About Their Partners

month ago

Finding out that someone we care for has an unpleasant habit is distressing, especially when that person is actually our significant other. Today, we’ve gathered a list of unexpectedly disgusting revelations people have made about their romantic partners, which they’ve shared with the online community.

  • I walked in on my then boyfriend sitting on the bed with his foot up to his mouth, biting off his long toenails. We were living together and had been dating for three years at this point. I didn’t want to mock him or anything, but how does someone decide that’s the right way to handle long toenails?! © twdani / Reddit
  • When I was 17, I once went to stay the weekend with my ex-boyfriend. It was my first weekend at his house. He always looked and smelled nice.
    In the evening, he took me to his bedroom, so I could stay in his bed. The sheets were brown. They hadn’t been changed or washed for at least 10 years. I had nowhere to go, so I got in. The smell was horrendous.
    He lived with his mom and dad. After that, I left him. I sent him a message saying that he needed to wash his bed covers. © Logical-Hovercraft83 / Reddit
  • This happened with my high school girlfriend when I was 17.
    The bottom drawer of her bathroom was filled to the brim with used tampons. When I discovered this and asked her why the bin or even just a sealable bag wasn’t an appropriate option, she sheepishly told me that she liked the smell of them.

  • I dated this guy who had a really crusty, gross belly button. He was otherwise clean. He’d come and visit me with his dog. The dog was very old and stinky. There was always a yeasty stink left over when the guy and the dog left.
    I thought it was the dog until one day he came without the dog, and I realized the stink was coming from him. From the belly button. © rubberloves / Reddit
  • Once, I felt something weird under the desk of my ex. I looked and the whole underside had tape on it. When I asked why it was so gross, he let me guess... Yup! It was build up snot! © TRVNSPVRVNCY / Reddit
  • I dated a guy for 7 weeks. The first couple of times I stayed the night, he was putting in effort for me, I guess, and had cleaned up ahead of time. However, by the third time, he’d stopped caring and resumed his habit of picking his nose in the night and wiping it on the wall next to the bed. He never cleaned them off, so they just accumulated on the wall. © Ashitaka1013 / Reddit
  • My most recent ex (a very attractive 35-year-old) never brushed his teeth before bed. Literally not a single time in the 3 months we were together.
    He stayed at my house for a weekend and forgot his toothbrush and didn’t tell me for two days. I mentioned I had bought him an extra toothbrush, and he goes, “That’s good, I was about to use yours.” © alnicx / Reddit
  • I dated a guy who would pick his nose and wipe it on the side of his T-shirt. He denied it even when I was pointing right at the nasty shirt, immediately after watching him do this.
    Anyway, he’s married with a baby now. © gwart_ / Reddit
  • In the mornings, I often discovered a mysteriously damp sock on my ex-boyfriend’s side of the bed, and sometimes, in my sleep, I heard him make peculiar noises. I avoided confronting him, not wanting to make him uncomfortable.
    One night, I jolted awake and was horrified to uncover the chilling connection between the 2 strange occurrences: he had been blowing his nose into his hands and then wiping them on his sock. Had I known, I would have simply moved the tissue box from my nightstand to his.
  • My roommate invited her new bf over for dinner. He seemed really nice, but we noticed a putrid odor coming from him. Trying to be polite, we ignored it, but it grew unbearable...
    After he left, I went to the guest toilet and was horrified to find, hidden in the trash, a plastic bag filled with what looked like raw, rotten meat, swimming in a pool of putrid liquid. The smell was overwhelming. Shocked, I confronted my roommate about it.
    Her face turned white, and she reluctantly admitted that they had gone to a butcher shop earlier that day, and he had insisted on bringing some “special cuts” as a gift. She had no idea how the bag ended up in the toilet’s trash or why he would leave it there, but it left us both feeling queasy and bewildered.

There are countless cringeworthy situations we might come across. The selected stories in this article are sure to provoke discomfort and make you feel uneasy.
