All healthy relationships are built on trust, but some people realize their partners were just plain phony. Reddit users were asked what one thing a significant other hid from them until after their relationship was over, and their answers will make anyone second-guess their love life!
You won’t believe the price of secrecy in slide #6!
10. Living Under The Enemy’s Roof
One unlucky Reddit user was told by their girlfriend that she lived with her godparents. They were in for quite a shock when they realized her godparents were really her ex-boyfriend’s parents. How convenient!
Everything was still alright until the ex-boyfriend moved back in. Time to pack!
The person in slide #7 was in for a shock when they met the parents!
9. True Love Starts At The Stomach
One woman recalls her now-husband grilling her the most perfect, decadent steaks every single time they decided to indulge in a hearty meal. He crafted the best steaks for years, and not until recently did she realize the first time he made her a steak was the first time he had ever attempted to cook the dish in his life.
Her husband simply studied how to make the perfect steak to impress his now-wife. His efforts definitely paid off!
8. Never Take A Serial Dater Seriously
This woman witnessed the ultimate red flag when her then-boyfriend invited her to a party where his ex-girlfriend would be, except he had not cut ties with her yet. She was also certain that he was seeing someone else before they finalized their divorce, and then he was seeing someone before he broke up with that woman as well.
This man is a certified mess — better steer clear!
7. This Man Is Definitely A Keeper
One woman waited a year to meet her boyfriend’s parents because he claimed a lot of women dated him for his possessions. This man was a farmer, but apparently a multi-millionaire farmer at that. She met his family at their lavish mansion.
Good things come to those who wait, and the next slide proves that ignorance is pure bliss!
6. Silence Is Golden, Literally
One Reddit user discovered that a significant other came into a large inheritance when their relationship began, and they reveal it was “wonderful surprise – especially because we were secure financially without it.”
Keeping quiet about huge financial gains is somewhat sketchy, especially when it comes to the one you love!
5. Dating An Unsung Hero
This Reddit user recalls hearing her boyfriend sing for the first time, and it left her in awe. “He would belt out random lyrics in the car with me in a fun, playful, not serious way all the time,” she stated, but once she heard him seriously sing it was soulful and quite good.
These two redefine lovebirds. Slide #2 reveals some love connections hit a very low note!
4. Hoarding The Sweet Stuff Is Sometimes Necessary
This person found out their girlfriend hides candy in her car, but with good reason. They admit they have an out-of-control sweet tooth, so the betrayal is totally justified.
They chow down on “gummy bears like a starved hyena,” so it’s best to stay away from the nearest sugar-filled snack!
3. It Takes Two To Tango
One woman found out that her husband was bisexual two years into the marriage, and he would blame every little insecurity she had on her being “homophobic.”
Turns out her suspicions were warranted: he was cheating on her with a man and a woman. Slide #1 proves that not all lies are created equal!
2. Things Went Downhill Real Quick
One man was unaware that his ex-girlfriend was on bipolar medication, and when they made a big move from New York to North Carolina she decided to stop taking it completely.
She then abruptly quit her job and left him with all of the bills. They split a month later — he learned quite a lot from his first long-term relationship!
1. Sometimes A White Lie Becomes Something Beautiful
This Reddit user remembers being in desperate need of a haircut during college but not having the funds. He went throughout the dorm looking for someone who does hair when his now-wife claimed she could do the job. She cut his hair in the hallway 13 years ago, and the two are now happily married.
She finally told him she never cut hair before, she just needed an excuse to talk to him that day. Sometimes finding your soulmate is worth a bad hair day!
