People Reveal What Grossed Them Out So Much About Their Partner That They Broke Up

People end their relationships for a multitude of reasons.

Sometimes, two people just amicably discover that they are incompatible.

Other times, people realize their partner isn't who they thought they were, and remaining in this relationship isn't healthy or safe.

Then there are the extreme cases, where people make unpleasant discoveries about their partners.

Discoveries which can only be described as "gross."

Redditor OpeningIntelligent83 was eager to hear the "gross" reasons people were finally driven to end their relationships, leading them to ask:
What grossed you out so much in a relationship that you just left?

Not So Subtle Manipulation

"We were in one of many fights and I told him I needed space, so we hadn't talked in maybe a day."

"I get a text from a random number saying it was his sister and that he was in the hospital after a bad work accident."

"I ask which hospital (knowing that it is him texting me using a number app, lying about being injured - BUT you never know, maybe it's real)."

"'She' tells me the name of the hospital and then sends me a picture of JUST his legs which are bruised, but they looked like how his legs always looked."

"And then she says this is the last picture they took of him before he was life flighted to the hospital."

"She said he had severe head trauma, a cracked skull, and his back was likely broken in several places."

"So...I called the hospital and asked if they had any patients by his name - they said no."

"I asked if anyone was life flighted in in the last few hours - they said no."

"I blocked the number and went to sleep."

"A few days later I got a text from ANOTHER random number claiming to be his brother."

"He sends me a selfie of him in a hospital gown in an exam room at a doctor's office."

"He looked totally normal - no cracked skull or broken back."

"And it was cute because the room was ocean themed with crabs and fish on the walls."

"Anyway, the text said he was in the ICU (the crab room) and he had just woken up from a coma!"

"Again, I ask which hospital and the 'brother' refuses to tell me, saying he'll be RELEASED within the hour so there's no point in a visit."

"I know it makes me sound like a bad person for not believing him, but this man lied to me on several occasions, told me he'd been shot, stabbed, poisoned."

"So many red flags and my mentally ill self was naive and lonely at that time in my life."

"Granted, this was a breaking point for me and I dove head first into therapy and never looked back."- coffeee_bean

Talk About Unhygeinic!

"(Briefly) dated a girl who never cleaned her adult toys."

"It was something I missed the first few times we were together due to lighting but once I did it was all I could do to not retch."

"I played it off like the batteries had died in it."

"Afterwards I took a peek at the rest of her collection and they were all the same, coated in crustyness.

"As far as I could tell she wasn't an otherwise dirty person either."

"He place was well kept and clean and every time we were together it was clear she had either just taken a shower, or we would take one together as part of our pre-game."

"Then again, I have anosmia and can't smell most things, so maybe she stank to hell, and I just couldn't tell?"- TheShandyMan

'Went to her apartment once."

"The smell when she opened the door should’ve been enough."

"There were dirty diapers overflowing trash cans in every room of the house."

"There was a super small walkway through the mounds of dirty clothes to the bathroom."

"And to make it worse , there were used paper plates on top of the MOUNTAIN of dirty dishes in 'the sink'."

"She proudly pointed out a moldy dish and said that it was from when she cooked dinner for two of our mutual friends."

"3 months prior."

'Noped the hell outta there."- Jammin_neB13

Good Thing They Noticed!

"The swastika I found under her left t*t."- vensik

Definitely Not A Keeper

"My ex used to say, constantly, that she wanted to be inside my skin."

"It was her way of saying she desired me, but it was weird and off-putting so I asked her to stop and she couldn't understand what was so uncomfortable about what she was saying."

"Pretty soon after that I went on a week long work trip and three days into it she called and told me the whole time I've been gone she wanted to cheat on me."

"Then she asked me if she could see other people while I'm gone."

"I broke up with her pretty much instantaneously."- BashfulArtichoke

Not What They Did, But What They Were Thinking

"She was jealous of me spending time with my sister and implied our relationship ‘wasn’t normal’."

"Dumped her the next day."- Tygoodnight

One Hopes She Got The Help She Needed

"It was two separate incidents, but long story short, one night she got super drunk at my sister-in-law's house."

"After spilling a second glass of red wine on my SIL's white carpet, we opted to move her glass further away from the edge of the table."

"As soon as we left, she screamed, like full-fledged raged, at me for 'not defending her'."

"The very next time we were together, she got drunk again and accused me of trying to cheat on her (I've never cheated on anyone) and threw her purse at me."

"I let things calm down and explained to her that I grew up in a house chock full of domestic violence and that was an absolute line in the sand."

"And for that reason, I was out."- Zutes

When They Admit To Stalking, GET OUT!!!

"He showed me, with excitement, a box of things he'd been collecting from me without my knowledge."

"This included strands of my hair taped up neatly, bobby pins and hair pins I had in from prom, my finger prints and saliva sample that he took out of the trash from our forensics class experiments."

"He thought this was a romantic gesture or something, but it just made me really realize how creepy and obsessive he is."

"He was also very controlling and got jealous/mad at me for hanging out with my sister or spending time on my laptop or with my dog."

"And he also admitted to me that he stalked my FB interests to pretend he knew and liked what I liked, researching the games I played and music I listened to so he could bring it up in conversation."

"Total psycho."- puppycatpie

Rendering His Showers Unnecessary

"I showered at his place after staying over and I asked for a towel."

"He gave me one which had literal skin flakes on."

"I asked for a clean one."

"He asked what I meant."

"He did not realize that you need to wash towels because 'they just have water on them so they clean themselves'."- G1ngerbeer

Complete And Total Lack Of Sympathy

"My mom died just weeks before and I was tired as f*ck, exhausted, and in a traumatic phase of grief after a year of cancer treatments and all the fuss of being there for a cancer battle."

"The woman I was seeing told me I need to get over it and can't just be alone inside all the time."

"Never spoke to her again."

"Went through my phases of grief and have been a resource to ppl in my life that are going through similar loss since then."

"Grief takes time or it doesn't; it's different for everyone."- Stevenerf

Trolls Aren't Just Found Under Bridges...

"Found out gf had several fake social media accounts she’d use to bully strangers and harass women she knew including my ex wife."

"Instant dump."- Zen4rest

Sometimes everyone needs to hush up.

Wouldn't that be nice?

If people could catch onto social queues and actually engage in conversation with another human, maybe then we'd be able to triumph at the basic art of communication.

But humans seem to be failing in this department.

So who among us hasn't been trapped in a nonsensical splattering of words we'd give limbs to escape from?
