Anonymous People Reveal The Secrets They're Keeping From Their Significant Other

Everyone has secrets. Some are harmless, some eat us alive from the inside. How far should secrecy go with a significant other? Should your darkest thoughts and most private memories forever remain hidden? Or is sharing them part of building a healthy relationship?

HowAmIHere2000 asked, What secret are you hiding from your SO?

Managing texts between your husband and mother sounds... exhausting.

I stage-manage the texts between him and my mother.

They are both awkward af, and they each think the other should be more forthcoming with conversation. Add the cultural differences and lack of anything in common, and it's a nightmare. So when he's texting my mother, I'm telling him what to type, and my mother is texting me asking me what she should respond with.

With any luck, they might learn to have a proper conversation with each other by our 20th anniversary.

If this isn't love... playing Overwatch just to make someone else happy.

I think he's really bad at the video game we play together and he's the reason I can't rank up - so I use a secret alt account to play on my own time.

A sure sign you've married your soulmate.

I know that he was looking into adoption. I found out when I was looking into it.

He's not hiding it from me. He just likes to have a full and complete grasp of everything before he brings it up. I'm sure he will broach the subject when he's ready.

I wonder how she refers to him on Reddit...

That I know her Reddit username.

Cooking habits are a surprisingly sensitive topic for people.

When my wife cooks she makes such a huge mess and uses a crazy amount of pots, pans, and cutlery. Kills me to no end as I end up having to clean that bomb site up.

Well aren't you just living goals.

I'm planning a trip to our favorite vacation spot while also trying to pick out a ring to propose to her. Wish me luck!

Get that epidural!

I'm really really scared of giving birth. Which I'm about to do in about 7 weeks. I don't know how to tell him that I have a panic attack every time someone brings it up.

He may be having issues, physically or mentally - so communication is key.

I quietly resent him for the lack of a sex life.

This is why Reddit is anonymous.

I hate this flowery top that she has. It's a horrible blouse with a silly flower pattern. It looks like it was made by a 3-year-old whilst on acid. To top that off, it cost like 20 quid. I threw it out a while back. She keeps asking me about it and I keep saying that I have no idea.

Dark - might wanna figure this out, ace.

I don't know if I love her like she loves me.

There's no shame here! Keep at it, she supports you. And is probably impressed at the ability to write a screenplay.

I wrote a screenplay and sent it into a competition. I didn't even make it past the first round. She knows how hard I worked on it so it's kind of almost embarrassing to tell her I got eliminated so quickly.

Thinning. Hair. Sucks.

He's started shaving his head because he's balding and I don't say anything bad because it would hurt his feelings. I know he's sad he's thinning out so I'm always complimenting him but I do miss his hair.

Prostate play can get messy but it's worth it.

I tried the whole prostate stimulation thing with my gf's and my toys at the same time and when I finished, a bit of poop was in the shower. I blamed the cats.

Do it. Life's too short to be miserable.

It's not working out and I've been miserable and am thinking about breaking up with him.

The spicier the better - mustard powder is delicious.

That I use a pinch of mustard powder in my fried spicy tofu recipe.

Hi welcome to Trump's America.

That these days I've been having a lot of depressing thoughts and anxiety and I'm scared of losing it.

Westworld needs to be watched more than once... show up as an expert.

We're long distance and agreed to wait to watch Westworld season 2 together but I started without him. I won't see him again till July and I just can't wait that long.

Buy him some fun socks!

I hate when he wears shorts because he wears them with socks and his regular shoes and it makes him look like a 50-year-old Dad.

Sometimes I hide his shorts so that he doesn't have a choice but to wear his regular jeans.

2018, in a nutshell.

I'm afraid of the future. Sometimes I get a small existential crisis sitting on the sofa.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
