It's never fun to be lied to, particularly by your significant other.

Sometimes we discover that they were lying to us in order to surprise us for our birthday or anniversary, making the dishonesty easily forgiven.

In other instances, however, their lies were all to cover up something much less celebratory.

For better or worse, some people's partners are very convincing liars.

Others however are simply unable to keep a secret, and their stories or explanations to cover things up only make things worse.


Redditor CanadianKiss was eager to hear the most absurd and ridiculous lies people ever heard from their significant others, leading them to ask:

The key to a healthy relationship is honesty, barring of course covering up a surprise which will make your partner happy.

And when the only way to stay in a relationship is through lies and deceit, it's probably time to start re-evaluating how well things are going.

Ironically, that's when it becomes time to really be "honest" with yourself.


Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
