8 People Confess the Worst Secrets They're Keeping from Their Significant Others

1/9

Everyone has secrets. I know this because I've been alive for 27 years and because I've watched Pretty Little Liars. The concept of secrecy has always interested me, so I asked some people to anonymously share the deepest, darkest secret they’ve ever kept from their partner—as well as how it affected their relationship.

"I've Never Told My Girlfriend That I Cheated on My Ex"
2/9

"I figured I’d tell my new girlfriend about it at some point, but then one night we got to talking about cheating and she said she could never be with someone who had cheated in a previous relationship because how was she supposed to know for sure that he wouldn’t eventually cheat on her? I assume she didn’t feel me suddenly tense up as we lay together in bed because she didn’t call me out or ask if I had ever cheated. I guess she just thinks I didn’t. I always worry in the back of my head that it’s going to come up. I can only hope that doesn’t happen until we’re in our later years, after I’ve been a loving and faithful husband for decades and I can tell her that I learned a lot from my mistake. However, I also hope I never have to tell her at all.”

"I Wasn't Exactly Faithful to My Boyfriend in the Beginning of Our Relationship"
3/9

“When my live-in boyfriend and I started seeing each other, things got pretty serious pretty quickly. I was seeing someone else at the same time. We never really had the talk where we decided we were going to be exclusive, but I probably put off breaking off things with the other guy for a little too long, past the time we'd reached that point. I can barely bear to think about how hurt he would be if he knew I was with another guy after a certain point in our relationship.”

"I Had Chlamydia When I Met Her"
4/9

"I was dating a woman for a couple weeks but was still kind of sleeping around, and I discovered I had chlamydia. We hadn't slept together, so I figured I didn’t need to tell her about it, as she wasn't in risk. But I felt like we were getting close to having sex, or at least messing around, so I actually pretended that I was on a business trip for the week I was getting treated. We dated for a long time after that but never got serious enough for me to tell her about the lie.”

"I Have a Criminal Record From When I Got Busted with Drugs in College"
5/9

"I haven’t told my girlfriend, but eventually I’m going to have to. It’s not something I want her to find out from someone other than me.”

"I Slept with Her Twin Before We Started Dating"
6/9

"I started dating my girlfriend in high school. We’ve been on and off since then for more than a decade. I tell her pretty much everything except for this: I hooked up with her twin sister—non-identical—before we got together. You would think that twin sisters would share pretty much everything with one another, but the thing was that when I hooked up with the other sister, she was pretty seriously dating a mutual friend. So I would never tell and she would never tell. Family dinners are still very awkward for me, especially because she is still with the guy she cheated on with me.”

"I Experimented with Homosexuality a Few Times"
7/9

"I was curious, and I don’t regret it. I never told my wife. It happened before I met her, and not that I think she’d care, but we kind of decided not to talk about our sexual pasts anyway, so I see no need to tell her.”

"I Was in an Abusive Relationship"
8/9

"I feel like I’ve recovered pretty well, and I want to keep it in the past. That’s one reason I never told my boyfriend. The other is that I don’t want him to judge me or think I’m weak for not leaving the first time I was hit.”

"Before We Met, I Had Sex with a Pro Hockey Player My Boyfriend Adores"
9/9

“I don’t want to think about how he’d react if I told him. He even has the guy’s jersey.”
