His dog sleeps in bed with him The dog regularly p*sses in said bed. After an uncountable number of bed toppers, comforters and sheets; I’m seriously rethinking this relationship. Edit to add: I’m not a dog hater…or at least I wasn’t until this dog. Well I don’t actually hate the dog. It could’ve been trained. But nope. This dog randomly sh*ts in the living room and has such “favorite” p*ssing areas in the house that the wood laminate floors are all ruined. The dog has a doggy door. It can’t be put on a leash because it doesn’t like collars/leashes. It never gets reprimanded for any bad behavior and regularly goes after anyone even if my BF is right there. Oh and I can’t hug or kiss my BF without the dog going off.

Constantly see his booty crack. But I love the guy. He has no a*s. Makes it hard for belts to stay put.

Biting my toenails. You read that right. Not her toenails but mine. I don’t like it but it doesn’t do any harm to me. Then she’ll chew on them for hours.

She’s averse to wasting water (particularly flushing the toilet), especially when it’s just pee… So she will allow a day’s worth of pee to accumulate, only for me to have to flush when I get home from work. I tell her all the time to flush every 3 pees, but I’m apparently the default toilet flusher for #1.

Doesn’t hold back burps or farts. I’m a full defender on letting it out but it’s not so great while having a serious conversation or right after being told someone close to you died. Especially because their farts smell like death.

He forcefully gags himself when brushing his teeth to remove phlegm. It’s a shockingly loud gag noise every single tooth brushing.

Picks at dandruff while relaxing on the couch. They are huge chunks. Then when he gets up he gives the furniture a hearty sweep with his hand. But yknow that just moves them to the carpet.

Can we just… not…pick at the scalp?

Mixes M&Ms and skittles in a bowl and eats them together.

We’ve been married 25 years and have 2 grown children. When I see her do it makes me question every choice I’ve ever made.

Farts in her sleep, wakes up because of the smell then gets upset and blames me for farting. Been together for 10 years and its still funny.

Sleeps with a stinking, rotten ‘blankie’ that never gets washed and is quite possibly the cause of Covid-19.

My boyfriend has allergy issues, and has a runny nose 90% of the time so he always has a tissue with him. It’s not the runny nose that’s gross, it’s the leaving of the snotty wet tissues that’s gross. On the couch. On the table. On the bed. Kitchen counter. Bathroom vanity. Window sill beside the toilet. EVERYWHERE. If I don’t pick them up, the dog will – then I have to pull out a snotty tissue from my dogs slobbery mouth.

When he gets really comfy and into deep sleep he farts up a storm and I think it’s the cutest thing ever. Luckily, there is no smell, just little happy toots and his mumbling conversations. I love him so much.

He doesn’t brush his teeth everyday. He’s starting to do it more but, I hate to say it, it took a lot of nagging and begging him to be better about it. Sometimes his breath smells so bad but I’m just used to it bc he smokes and cigarette smell doesn’t bug me much. I’ve accepted that this is the one red flag I have to deal with and it’s a work in progress but my habits are slowly rubbing off on him but oml don’t judge me.

My ex never cleaned her room and she had guinea pigs and hadn’t clean their cages on a regular basis that it was attracting flies while she just sat there on TikTok, I had cleaned her room my third visit to her because I couldn’t stand it and had to take the guinea pig cage outside and scrape the bottom, wipe it, and let it soak for over an hour.

To take his medication in pill form: He chews up a big piece of food, spits it out in a ball, shoves his medication in it, throws the ball of food back in his mouth and swallows it whole.

He doesn’t use a napkin. Like never. Not even if he is eating pizza or burguer with his bare hands. He will simply rub one hand with the other once he’s finished.
Then he will proceed to use those dirty hands to either pet our dog or use the keyboard on the pc.

Leaves used q tips everywhere! His ears are the cleanest I’ve ever seen but still can’t stand finding them in random spots days later.

He puts his toothbrush upside down in the holder. He’s a monster. But I love him.

He sometimes does not wipe his a*s after he s**ts. He says he can tell if it’s a messy one or a clean one. One time I caught him in the act and told him straight up he needed to wipe rn and prove it to me that it was clean. Y’all. He was right. It was spotless. I thought he didn’t wipe hard on purpose and I made him let me do it. Clean still. I still don’t approve.

She grabs my belly fat and wobbles it, saying that it’s cute and she doesn’t care, but I still think it’s her asian way of low-key fat shaming me.

Multiple times I saw my ex pick a booger and flick it off into his room Also, about 3 months after we broke up I was cleaning under my bed and found different pieces of gum stuck to the bottom of my bed frame. (Mind u he’s the only other person to sleep in my bed).

Sucks her tea bags dry.

He picks his teeth with the point of a sharp knife. It’s not particularly gross, but the thought of metal against teeth makes me cringe so hard, I can’t stand it.


Image source: Tiny_Parfait, Julia Julia/Flickr (not the actual photo)

He sometimes eats while in the bathroom taking a s**t. He’ll also try to feed me snacks in the bathroom, like if he’s made cookies and saw me walk past to go pee. (I only ever eat in the bathroom if I’m having a long soak in the tub.).

Clips his nails with his teeth and sets the clippings on different countertops.
