Fact of life: Many relationships end. Guess what? Some of those endings might be painful, either for what's left unsaid or what is said out loud.

Ever been appalled by something someone, perhaps an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, said to you to the point that it forced you to reconsider whether or not you even wanted to stay with them?

People shared their stories after Redditor ChassieLove15 asked the online community,

"What did your ex say that made you realize you weren't compatible and had to break up?"

"I don't understand..."

"I don't understand why we can't just use the money you already have and neither of us work. If it starts running out, you can always go back to work."

lol nope

Yeah... sounds exactly like the kind of person you don't want to have around the moment there are financial problems.

"I was talking to her..."

"I was talking to her on the phone and she just hung up when I was in the middle of a sentence. I asked her about it later and she said I wasn't saying anything important and she had things to do."

"I have a lineup..."

"I have a lineup of guys waiting for me. If you break up with me, I'll be scooped up by tomorrow."

Fine, bye!!

Sounds like she really wanted to test out that hypothesis. Oh well.

"Then he got mad..."

"I was told all of the bad things in our relationship were my fault."

"Then he got mad when I ended the relationship. Why would I stay if you honestly feel that way?"

Good question. Why would you? Or should you? You're better off.

"She displayed..."

"Long time ago I had an ex who never worked full time during our relationship. She displayed what I thought might be depressive tendencies. I begged her to see a professional but she wouldn't. Finally broke up and her next boyfriend said the same thing 3 months into their relationship and she went, got a diagnosis and meds. Now she works FT and seems to have a normal life. Good for her but I wasted 6 years of my life waiting for her to get her act together."

People Break Down The Strangest Rules Their Parents Enforced Growing Up | George Takei’s Oh Myyy

The rules we follow growing up are often rooted in culture and circumstance, but that doesn't mean they always make sense for the world we live in. Or at lea...

"She suggested..."

"She suggested we no longer attend parties at swimming pools and beaches, because there would be girls in bikinis and I would see them."

thesaga

Who knew women in bikinis had so much power and that men could be so weak?! Ridiculous.

"If you don't want..."

"If you don't want to spend every single minute with me, then we're going to have a problem."

"We had a problem."

IwishIwereyou

RUUUUUUUUN.

"He essentially told me..."

"He essentially told me I wasn't "worshipping" him enough."

"I immediately felt..."

""I could sleep with (insert ex's name here) down in (another city she commutes to)"

Immediately felt like I was being cheated on. On top of how she made me mentally feel, I was checked out 100% at that point."

"At that point..."

"She never wanted to have sex. We talked it out and she said she's just not in the mood most of the time, and I realized I have a very high sex drive. At that point, we realized this relationship wasn't going to be fair to either of us."

The lesson here: Some people really need to keep their mouths closed. Or just learn to think before they speak. But easier said than done, right?

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

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?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.
