[rebelmouse-image 18345924 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345925 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345927 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18345928 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

That I know her Reddit username.

Cooking habits are a surprisingly sensitive topic for people.

[rebelmouse-image 18345929 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345930 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18345931 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345932 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

This is why Reddit is anonymous.

[rebelmouse-image 18345933 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345934 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345935 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345936 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345937 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345938 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345939 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Hi welcome to Trump's America.

[rebelmouse-image 18345940 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345941 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18345942 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18345943 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.

People Explain Which Behaviors Are Associated With Men But Actually Everyone Does Them

There are things men do that easily annoy the opposite sex, simply by being a guy.

"That's such a dude move," or "typical male," can be examples of snide remarks made following disapproving gender-specific behavior.

It still amazes me that we live in a world where people are charged for drinking water. Water is a necessity! I have a lot of disdain for companies like Nestle, which siphons millions of gallons of water from entire communities only to sell it back to them.

What the hell is up with that? Does that not sound dystopian to anyone else? Okay, then. Water should be free – this should not be controversial.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor that_boy_ste asked the online community,

"You can make one thing/service free for the entire planet. What are you making free?"

People Share TV Shows From Their Childhood That No One Seems To Remember
Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

When I was a kid, I would occasionally watch this show called Big Bag. It went off the air more than 20 years ago and it seemed to only play at five or six in the morning. If I happened to wake up early, I'd catch it. It was targeted toward preschool viewers and was fun and silly, a partnership between Cartoon Network and what is now the Sesame Workshop.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who remembers it existed. But I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor LegitimateMangoHeir asked the online community,

"What's a show from your childhood that no one else seems to remember?"
