- Wedding: September 2014
I don’t fart in front of my husband but I have terrible irritable bowl, as does he so he knows when Im pooping, but I just don’t talk about it.
When he goes to work and I’m not working that day, Ill say I got up early and did all this stuff when in reality I just laid in bed until 3pm eating cookies and watching trash TV.
When we talk about having kids, I always make it sound like I’m not in the middle of a baby-craze and waiting a few more years is fine. Like, I could totally just have a kid tomorrow and be cool with it.
He still has no clue how much I weigh. He thinks I’m around 125. He can continue to think that forever.
When he gets home from work he always wants me to watch these dumb movies he finds on foreign channels with him. I always lie and say I have a ton of homework because he just farts the whole time and I can’t breathe.
I think it’s very odd that the OP described being honest with your SO as being “fashionable” – really?! It’s just a fad to have open communication in a relationship that is intended to last for the rest of your life? Really.
The only secrets I’m keeping from my fiance is what my wedding dress and wedding night lingerie looks like. In the future the only things I plan to keep secret are gifts.
I told him all about my bachelorette party (that I remember), and he told me what he remembers of his bachelor party. We did this because I’m friends with his guy friends, and he’s friends with my girl friends, and there were funny stories we’d both appreciate.
Hell, I’ve even kept him updated on my bowel movements before because I was having some minor medical problems for a while. And he did the same to me before that. We laughed at the absurdity of telling each other “pooping went well today!” followed by “I’m glad we’re this close” Don’t make it weird and it won’t be weird, haha.
@Rachel631: I hid the fact that one night when I was sick (over ate), I started brushing my teeth and tongue really well. I looked up and saw my toothbrush in the toothbrush holder. I was using his! 🙁 I ran it under the boiling hot tap and cleaned it thoroughly, and bought him a new toothbrush. I felt so bad!
I’ve also wanted a ball jointed doll for a year, but didn’t want to spend hundreds on one. I bought a small, secondhand one for $50 the other week, and it’s gorgeous. But currently hiding out under my bed at home. My SO will see it eventually, by which point I will have ‘had it for ages’. 😉
On the other hand, younger people of my acquaintence seem to think that they should confess everything. The fashion seems to be to claim complete openness, and I’m just not convinced. I’m sure that most people have little secrets. I don’t mean hiding money from their other halves, or sleeping with the milkmen. I mean things like saying their new skirt was in the sale when it wasn’t! See examples above, LOL!
