While some people have simple little secrets, others have some major dirty laundry. These people sure know how to hide their baggage.
One of my exes waited months to tell me that her godparents (that she lived with) were actually her ex-boyfriend’s parents.
I actually didn’t mind it until he moved back in. Source
Smooth As Silk
He could do magic tricks. We were together for thirteen years and one day he pulls out a deck of cards and says “pick a card, any card.” F—er got my card and everything, just as smooth as can be. Never did it again. Source
A Handmade Craft
omg. my husband, after we were married (dated 3 years)…busts out and turns a restaurant napkin into an origami crane. this guy is not suave at all – typical awkward engineer. i am completely baffled as to why he didn’t try to impress me with this at the beginning! Source
Married To A Criminal
She hadn’t done her taxes in three years because it made her anxious. Turns out she was owed 7K from the government. Source
Running For Your Life
I just found out that he’s scared of snails and slugs after almost 13 years of marriage. Source
Can You See Me Now
My gf swoops her hair over her left eye. I thought it was just an emo hairstyle until i found out she was blind in one eye. Source
Anything To Quit
Well, I’m the one that hid something from her – that I was a smoker.
It got to a point where I’d hidden it that long that to admit it would be pretty much lying by omission, and I really liked her.
And that’s the story of how I quit smoking. Source
Til Death Do Us Part
I found out that she was married before (for a green card for him). She doesn’t know that I know. Source
What A Thing To Hate
That he hates sheets. About 4 years into the relationship he proclaimed that sheets wrap around him when he sleeps and he refuses to use them anymore. Apparently he’s always hated sheets but just never mentioned it. Source
Anything For Love
So, when I was younger, my group of friends had this tradition of messing with people who passed out; drawing on them, stacking things on them etc. Anyway, one night I noticed there were a lot of people passed out. So I started bingo daubing everyone on the forehead. Then I realized I was the only one awake. Not only that but I had bingo daubed the forehead of a girl I really liked. I didn’t want her to get pissed off at me for bingo dobbing her forehead so I concluded, in my drunken stupor, that I had no other choice than to bingo dob myself…So I did. Years went by and it was always a mystery who bingo daubed everyone. The girl I liked at that party had been my girlfriend for several years now and I finally decided to come clean. She thought it was hilarious. But let me tell you, that ink they use in those bingo daubers is really hard to clean off your forehead. Source
You Were Right
My GF (now wife) and I had been living together for two years before I told her I watched Star Trek. I was worried she would think I was too nerdy.
It was the early 90s. I had a VCR at my parent’s house and I would have dinner with them once a week, and then watch the latest episode of The Next Generation. It all came out one week when my GF and I were both over for dinner. We were getting ready to leave, when my mom says “Aren’t you going to watch Trek first?” It was all out in the open.
My GF immediately felt bad for me, saying she would never have judged me for watching Trek. She even watched a few episodes with me I had on VHS at my parent’s home. She liked it, and thought the stories and themes were good.
Trying to assuage my fears further, a few months later she surprised me with tickets for both of us to a Star Trek Convention that was coming to town. So we went. After about 30 minutes walking around the Con, seeing autograph booths, vendors, and cosplayers, she leaned into me and whispered lovingly in my ear,
“You were right not to tell me.” Source
Ouch, That’s Harsh
That she liked the person I could become, not the one I was.Source
Ripping Through The Bag
I found out that my significant other hides candy from me in her car. In fairness, she does this because she likes the occasional sweet, whereas I attack a bag of gummy bears like a starved hyena. Source
It took me 4 years to tell my now wife I do not like my sandwiches cut in half… she still brings it up. Source
That’s Some Commitment
My Uncle hid a walnut allergy from his ex girlfriend many years ago. She found out when he had to be hospitalized after he ate some walnut brownies she made for him. He knew about the walnuts, he just wanted to be nice. Source
I don’t know if she “hid” it or just didn’t discuss it. But I didn’t learn of her massive student loan debt until we were engaged. Source
My ex-girlfriend hid the fact that she was on bi-polar medication before we moved in together in NC after moving from NY. She then stopped taking her medication, and then quit her job. Leaving me as the sole income for the two of us. I was 23 years old, and this was my first long term relationship. We broke up a month after she quit her job. That was a very long month. Source
