10 people share the juicy secrets their lovers are keeping from them that they already know
How much do you really know about your significant other? How much do they know about you? it's a bit of an uncomfortable question isn't it? To be honest, it's one that a lot of couples are conflicted over, because there's a good chance that they might not like to find out the answer. Of course, everyone has a secrets; it's a fact of life. Some of them are trivial and embarrassing, and others are major, and bear with them profound consequences for the future of the relationship. A secret can bring a couple together, or break them apart. It all depends on the individual.
Recently, an AskReddit thread started by a user with the handle Riptidecharger addressed this conundrum. They asked: "Reddit, what is the worst secret your SO is keeping from you, but that you actually know?" and before they knew it, all sorts of people from across the internet were sharing their lovers' deepest, darkest secrets, from the most hilarious to the most upsetting. Scroll down to check out the answers below:
1. The snack addict
"Everybody likes snacks, right? Some of us like chips, others like fruit, or yogurt. Well, my wife likes croutons. Frozen croutons to be exact and she tries to hide it like an alcoholic hides bottles of vodka. Where does she hide the croutons? In the freezer. At first I'd put them in the pantry when we get home from the grocery store, but they'd always end up in the freezer. I'd be like, 'Uh, hon, what's up with the croutons in the freezer?' and she'd act like she had no idea what I was talking about. Now here's the thing, I've tried them and now I'm addicted to them too. So now I openly eat cold croutons out of the freezer as a snack, and she tells me what a weirdo I am while she eats half the bag with me. No idea why she's embarrassed to admit what a genius she is for discovering such an awesome snack. BTW, the best kind is Chatham Village garlic and cheese flavour."
2. The Salad Secret
"Her Caesar salad dressing. It's actually the best thing ever but even after two years she refuses to tell me what's in it. What she doesn't know is that I have secretly been watching her make it over the past few months. I have finally pieced it together and now I have the power!!"
3. The imaginary posse
"She has no idea that I know about her multiple imaginary friends. Also she has this crazy notion that the computer programs she writes have become sentient - I am considering contacting a therapist."
4. The former hooker
"Was a prostitute & was in some adult films, & worked as an exotic dancer when young & hungry (Retired. Bought a food truck. I loved the coffee & grilled cheese sandwiches. Fell in love). Doesn't think I know. Doesn't know I don't care. I'll never tell."
5. The big spender
"He spent a ton of money on bruins tickets this year. Whenever he got tickets to a match he claimed he got them for free through work but I know he paid for them. I don't really mind since he can spend his money how he wants, but it's funny to me that he thinks I wouldn't realise he's spending a few hundred bucks every time he goes to a game."
6. The sly smoker
"She smokes when I'm not home, I know this because I always move the router to the window where the signals best, when I come home the router is in a different position away from the window, I put it back without her knowing and call her out for smoking, she has no idea how I keep finding out!"
7. The incontinent guy
"My ex peed the bed. He didn't know that I knew ... He had told me about it at one point after I had suspected it for a while, but subsequently he forgot ever telling me. Blamed it all on the cat. Also, this was back in high school, so I don't know much about the condition."
8. The Facebook creep
"He masturbates to pictures on Facebook of girls we know."
9. The cat lover
"He claims he doesn't love the new cat his parents adopted. Claims she always just sleeps in his room for some reason ... Motherf*cker loves that cat so much."
10. The cheater
"My ex, and the cheating. She thinks I found out when I looked at her phone, but I new about two months earlier when she sent me a pic of herself watching Netflix in bed. I don't think she realised that the dude's face was 100% visible reflected in the laptop. After that it was a matter of me being in denial and trying to fix things."
