As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"


He was anything but faithful

"He cheated on me."

"When I had cancer."- stolliolli

Her one true love... wasn't me

"She drunkenly admitted to her friends that her ex-boyfriend was the one and she’ll never get over him."

"Still not sure how to handle that information."- FreeFoot_

Complicit without knowing it.

"She was an opiate addict."

"I was funding her addiction unknowingly."

"I was helping her destroy herself and I was too stupid to realize that."- Local64bithero

Moving way too fast

"Not that it was that traumatic as we were only dating a few weeks, but she started real deal crying when I wouldn't put her on my life insurance."- Toasted_Bagels_R_Gud

Someone needs to sharpen their aim...

"I hang up a towel to dry my hands in the bathroom."

"Sometimes I would find it on the floor and think hmmm the towel fell off the rack."

"TEN YEARS GO BY."

"One day my husband casually says 'you are always so quick to do laundry, like if I accidentally pee on the floor and clean it up with the towel it is gone so quick'."

"I'm like what.... what?"

"WHAT!!!!!!"

"So yea, I've been drying my hands with pee towels for 10 years."

"FML."- kperkins1982·

A club no one wants to belong to

"I was dating my ex for two years and she drunkenly confessed that she had cheated on every bf she had ever had."

"We broke up not long after."

"Then found out she was also cheating on me with multiple people from the office."

"I’m now happily married!"

"She also hid her then current bf from me when we first hooked up, he was asleep in another bedroom and we was in a different bed."

"She told him I missed the train home and needed a place to get my head down."- JancingSalmon

A stronger connection than they knew.

"He once dated a girl that he was getting fairly serious about until he showed up to a family event and she was there."- rowenaravenclaw0

What was he up to?

"He had a notebook of every detail of my life, including menstrual cycle, and also kept all the details of my friends and family members."

"Even ones I had never mentioned."

"And we were only together for two months."- totalfranmove

The news no one wants to hear

"That she had Cancer, which ultimately took her."

"That is literally the only thing I found out about my late wife that I ever regretted."- d20gamerguy

A happy anniversary indeed.

"This is NSFW."

"She gave me her phone to look for an address and make a restaurant reservation for our 7 year anniversary."

"I don't know why she gave me her phone, but I guess it was just destiny."

"Someone sent her a video on Whatsapp, and the next message says 'tomorrow again?'"

"From the same person."

"Now I am not one of those people who checks my partner's phone, I don't like that."

"But I was curious and clicked on it. It was a full 2 minute video of her hooking up with someone"

"Needless to say there was no anniversary dinner."- kmiaw

Even though everyone here says they wish they'd never learned these things, one has to imagine some of these people are, deep down, grateful.

As they may have been saved from trouble or pain down the line.

Even if it doesn't make these discoveries any easier.


People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
