Relationships are about as interesting as they are tricky. Most of us end up meeting someone we’re particularly compatible with, then fall madly in love and start planning our lives in a big-picture way, overlooking and often ignoring small details.
For example, you might be dating a person for two years before discovering that they actually hate sushi and have only been eating it around you because they’re afraid of hurting your feelings. It’s a tiny detail in the long run — granted, one you might have preferred to discuss
oh, I don’t know, two years ago earlier — but it might leave you questioning all other kinds of things and potentially spiraling out of control. Like, does your partner even like you or do they just keep you around so your feelings don’t get hurt? You get the idea.
To our great delight, some kind of Machiavellian redditor posed the following question to the community: What’s something you found out about your S/O years into the relationship that made you reevaluate the whole thing?
The responses are simultaneously cringeworthy and pleasurable to read, you know, in a schadenfreude way. So grab some popcorn, and hug your S/O for being who they are — or don’t, because who knows what kinds of secrets they’ve got hiding up their sleeves.
Ohhhh *now* I see what you mean…
“This will take me awhile to process.”
Run, don’t walk.
This sounds like a really frustrating situation to be in.
Eight years in hiding.
“We have nothing to hide from one another. Or so I thought.”
University of What?
These coincidences are so crazy, it’s like the couple’s meant to be.
“She was formulating a plan to murder me.”
“I never realized how intelligent she was.”
If only you knew this from the start.
Think you could have said something like… nine months ago?
22 years and you think you know a person…
You know it’s bad when parents have to be brought in.
