It's safe to say your exes are exes for a reason. Something in your relationship just did not work out, and while it may have hurt at the time, you're better in it for the long run. Though, certainly, if all your past paramours were to gather in one place they might have something to say to you.


Reddit user, u/dRPhantom93, wanted to know what your worst fears are when they asked:

If your exes all gathered in a room, what's one thing they would unanimously agree on?

The Times Have Certainly Changed

"HE'S A DRUNK LAZY F-CKER!"

Then my current Fiancee would look very confused because I've been alcohol free for 4 years and I certainly do not behave how I use to.

What A Terrible Pet Name

Giant D-ck.

Not that I have one, but that I am one.

Change For The Worse

That they all remember me as being much more happy and full of life than I am now.

Simply Out Of It

They'd most likely agree that I was sweet to them and never violent. They'd also all have similar experiences with me appear to 'check out' of the relationship via playing video games and ignoring them. (it's subconscious and im working on it)

I also villainized all of them when we broke up and cut off all contact because it was easier for me to cope. So, that would probably be mentioned.

The First Step Is Self-Awareness

That I was a fun and sweet boyfriend but have too many issues stemming from my super-religious upbringing to survive in long term relationships.

EDIT: For those asking: Jehovah's Witnesses.

Moderation Is Not In My Dictionary

Pretty sure this would be unanimous.

  • He is funny. / He can be inappropriate.
  • He is a good cook. / He likes things too spicy.
  • He really likes beer. / He likes beer maybe a little too much.

Steer Into Your Beanbag Status

That I make a better bed than a boyfriend.

Every single gf I've had has said, unprompted, that I am unbelievably comfortable to lie on

You Might Learn From Them

They'd probably agree that I was a bit too clingy, which is why I've spent the last 4 years single in order to work on myself.

Remember folks, make sure you're stable and happy before entering a relationship - thinking someone else will magically make you happy will not make you happy unless you're with them all the time... hints the clingy part.

EMPURE

All You Can Do Is Apologize

That I am extraordinarily sh-t at break-ups.

Also that I mentally check-out from the relationship when under stress.

And that I am a really good cook.

There Can Be A Positive Spin To It

"She's a wonderful person, just not the right one for me."

All 3 of my ex's, including my husband, either cheated or left me for someone else.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
