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

Giphy

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.

There are few conspiracy theories that annoy me lately as much as the QAnon conspiracy theory. Other than it posing a grave threat to our democracy, I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would take any of it as gospel. It's also remarkably easy to debunk––I'm still waiting for "the Storm" amid the ever-changing goalposts, by the way.

Turns out there are quite a few other conspiracies out there annoy the hell out of people, as we discovered once Redditor Sonic-the-edge-dog asked the online community,

"What's a conspiracy theory that annoys you due to how easily disprovable it is?"

The gift of hearing is an awesome thing. So many of us have the luxury to take it for granted.

How many 'first' sounds do we hear regularly that barely register for memory?

For those of us who are given sound after never having it or losing it and regaining it, have an appreciation most of us will never understand.

They embrace sound with such thankfulness and clarity. They can also tell you when hearing disappoints.

After all they have a build up of imagination in mind.

Redditor u/XxXNoobMaster69XxXx was hoping the formerly hearing impaired would sound off a bit by asking:

Ex-deaf people of reddit, what was the most underwhelming sound, respective to your expectations?

Schools are like their own little universes. A whole mini-society, complete with its own specific rules and customs, some of which make absolutely no sense whatsoever. You can't help but wonder what the faculty was thinking in some of these cases, or why no one stopped to think about why they were so weird.

People lie. The tagline of the popular TV series House, MD, was "everybody lies." That includes my parents and yours, folks.

Sometimes parents lie to their children to protect them. Sometimes they lie because it's easier than telling the truth. But unfortunately, not all parents are good people. Some lie to manipulate their children, or hold control over them. And that story is way more common than any of us would like to think.
