Let’s face it, some people have nasty, unsanitary habits, whether it’s their living environment or a personal habit. It can be a huge turn-off to potential partners, especially if the person doing it is unaware that it’s gross to someone else. It’s pretty common for people to have certain pet peeves or habits that they find unpleasant or unappealing in their partners.
Unsanitary Bathroom Habits
One Redditor shared, “I dated a guy in college who played a lot of video games because of this; he would p***s in bottles when he couldn’t get up from his desk. I remember going over to his place, and he had like 6 bottles in his room. Most were open!”
Lack Of Selfcare
This Redditor said, “I dated a guy once who told me he could never wear contacts again because he’d kept them in while he played a video game for DAYS without taking a break. They had dried out and basically adhered to his eyes, so he had to have surgery to have them removed, and it permanently damaged his eyes.”
A user had this to say, “He works from home and does not shower every day. I’m ok with that, but I wish he would brush his teeth as his dragon breath hits you from 6ft away!”
This user shared, “He stopped wearing deodorant because he thinks it’s bad for him, without taking other measures. He just stinks now!”
Making A Mess
One Redditor said, “He leaves a trail of himself throughout the house. Leaves coffee stains on the counter. Constantly leaves foods and liquids where he eats, and to top it off, he leaves apple cores, banana peels, and orange skins in the sink!”
This user stated, “He just thoughtlessly leaves things all over the house. Walks straight past the key rack and puts his keys on the table. Leaves paperwork on top of his dresser and the dining room table. Spread some to the coffee table for good measure. Leaves his coat on a dining room chair and puts his clothes NEXT TO the hamper.”
A Redditor shared this, “My husband, after finishing his “alone” time, takes the wet rag and puts it in his bedside drawer. He just lets them accumulate in there. The other day, I was looking for our spare key and pulled out a wet hand after realizing what they were.”
Won’t Use A Tissue
A user says, “My husband doesn’t get a tissue to blow his nose in the house. He shoots snot rockets that sit wherever he is. It is absolutely disgusting. Our kids now do it too!”
This user said, “Puts his dirty underwear back on after taking a shower, he says, “They’re not that dirty.”
This Redditor said, “My ex used to pick his nose and fling it around the house. I found them on the walls, the bed, the floor, everywhere. I tried to “cluelessly” ask him what he was doing in the hopes he’d be embarrassed and stop. He didn’t.”
A user added, “My ex was a picker – scabs, pimples, dry skin, ingrown hairs, toenails, etc. He couldn’t leave anything alone – on himself, and eventually, he’d start picking at me!”
A Redditor shared, “When my ex cried, he’d say the cringeiest things when he was sad. He basically played the victim in every scenario. He would also talk like an anime protagonist. High-pitched whiney voice and would say things like “Why…why… why do bad things only happen to me?!” It was really bad, and I couldn’t help but feel disgusted whenever he was sad.”
A user said, “My boyfriend will lick my nose when we make out sometimes. I know it’s not that bad, but saliva smells bad, and it takes me out of it. He also burps in my mouth sometimes when we kiss.”
Won’t Use A Tissue
This user shared, “He doesn’t blow his nose. So will sit there snuffling and snorting away. It’s disgusting. Get a damn tissue.”
A Redditor said, “My boyfriend gets really stuffed up sometimes, especially in the mornings, so he will hock huge loogies (into the trash or some tissues). The sound of it is really dramatic and grosses me out! I can’t force him to live with phlegm, so I have to deal with it!”
This Redditor said, “My fiance munched sunflower seeds (shells and all) and spit the whole thing out as a mushed-up monstrosity. I have never been more horrified by him, and he is now banned from my sunflower seeds.”
A user shared, “He chews on his fingers. Not the nail (which is mostly gone) his actual fingers. They look like someone took a hacksaw to the tips.”
Chews With His Mouth Open
This user added, “I dated a guy a few years ago that would smack his lips whenever he ate like a weird mixture of sucking on his food and chewing with his mouth open. It was disgusting and still makes me physically cringe just thinking about it.”
A Redditor said, “He picks his teeth with paper receipts that he has around the place. Disgusting!”
One Redditor added, “My ex-husband had an awful diet that included a ton of butter, sugar, and other fats, which would cause really stinky farts. He would fart wherever he was in the house and stink up the entire room!”
Finally, A Redditor shared, “My ex always had pee spots on his boxers from not drying himself. After it dried out, his boxers would stink! Also, on a daily basis, he would fiddle with himself when he reads!”
These stories shared by Redditors show that everyone has their quirks and habits, and some of them can be downright gross. It’s important to communicate with your partner about what bothers you, and work together to find solutions that work for both of you.
