Boyfriends, for the most part, are amazing. They’re cute (when they want to be), make you feel special and are essentially one of your best friends. Yet that doesn’t counteract the fact that, like anyone you spend a whole lot of time with, they get on your nerves.
Now, we’re not advocating keeping secrets from your significant other, but there are certain things that are best kept on the DL when your boyfs happiness is concerned.
Here are the 7 things you should never tell your partner.
1. That the guy you had a casual fling with forever ago is at the same party as you.
So, you’ve gone out for a close friends’ birthday party, and your boy has opted out on this celebration to give you girl time. So when he messages you asking how the night is going, please don’t tell him that the guy you had a few casual encounters with before your current relationship is there and making eyes at you from across the room. Your guy does not want to hear that, and while some people are into the whole jealousy thing, for the most part you won’t get the reaction your looking for.
2. That your fave contestant on The Bachelorette is so romantic and that your boy could pick up some tips.
This is pretty self-explanatory. No guy wants to hear that their wooing ways needs a little work (even if it does). There’s much more subtle ways to tell your guy that watching Netflix at home doesn’t count as a real date.
This especially counts if you two are living together and sometimes opt for 2 minute noodles over a roast. We’re all about treating yourself, but maybe don’t reveal how much your most treasured pieces in your wardrobe really cost.
4. You’d constantly stalk his ex on Facebook before things got official.
Admit it, we’re all guilty of this one! While your guy is bound to know you’re sometimes a little crazy, he doesn’t really need to know the extent you went to know everything about his past in your early days of dating.
5. That you overshare a little too much about your relationship with your BFF.
Especially when wine is involved, it can be hard not to tell your BFF everything. But we can gurantee that your man would hate it if he knew that your BFF knows exactly what he likes in the bedroom.
6. How much you dislike his best friends.
Now this one is within reason. Your guy is sure to have some amazing mates, but when there’s that one who is an obvious player and always makes annoying remarks about how your man is whipped and has changed since you two got together... yep he’s not one of your faves.
7. That you would actually prefer to do anything else than watch him play sports.
Even organise your wardrobe, which you’ve been putting off for months. As part of being in a relationship you have to support your significant other, even if you tend to daydream about Liam Hemsworth during his football matches (he doesn’t need to know about that one either).
8. During his guy’s night you obsessively check his social media to see what he’s really up to.
Look, we’re not saying you have #trustissues. Just that you have his best interests at heart.
9. How much you cried and ate a whole tub of mint choc chip ice cream when you almost broke up.
No one wants to appear clingy or too attached, especially in the early stages of a relationship. While your guy is sure to be concerned if he really knew how much your almost break up did affect you, he doesn’t need to know how much, right?
