We’ve all go secrets, some worse than others. Sometimes, those secrets are so bad that there’s no one you feel comfortable telling them to. And that really sucks because secrets naturally want to get out. It’s not healthy to walk around with too much on your chest.

And that’s where the Internet comes in. With very little effort and virtually no consequences, someone with a terrible secret can pour their heart out on a forum like Reddit. And posting totally feels cathartic, even if it doesn’t really change the situation. Sometimes, though, that’s enough.

1. Poly

I’ve discovered I’m polyamorous and cannot be happy with just him. I have no plans to cheat on him. I just want to run. I did. And now I don’t know where to go. We just bought a house. i’m planning to sleep in the car and live off gift cards until I figure out what to do. I at least have my laptop. I am so f*cked.

2. Guardsman

I am in the national guard and after two years I have had it. I plan on failing my test so I can finally get out and resume my life. I was never big into military and was suckered in in high school by free college.

I would much rather work harder at my other job Which I enjoy very much and get to smoke weed when I want Then be surrounded by people I would otherwise choose not to hang around with. I am not on here looking for your judgment I just needed to tell someone because my friends and family wouldn’t understand. I know life will be more of a challenge with a general discharge instead of Honorable, but I will face it because I do have a strong work ethic though many will think I just wanted to get high all the time.

3. “It just makes me want to cry”

I had sex with my best friend, who happens to be my ex. It was fun. Did it a few times. Then he did some stuff with another girl (we’re both single so it’s totally ok). Now I can’t stand the idea of him touching me. Weirdest thing is I want him…like BADLY and he wants me too(just physically of course), but the idea of him touching me just makes me think of what he did (yes i know it’s illogical, he was in all his rights), and it just makes me want to cry. It doesn’t make sense. It’s completely illogical. I think it’s really pathetic and stupid of me but whenever I think of maybe doing it with him again I kinda just feel repulsed by myself… It is so idiotic I hate myself more than anything. Basically, my confession is that im an idiot.


4. “I just all hope”

I’ve recovered psychically from anorexia, for about a year now, and since, I’ve gained 100 pounds. I went from 120 to 220 because like so many girls, I developed a binge eating disorder, and I began purging. But, contrary to popular belief… purging can’t get all the calories out, and when I noticed I started gaining, I just lost all hope. And now, and the peak of my highest weight, I am completely disgusted with myself. I want to be able to diet the healthy weight, and lose weight properly, but now every time I see any food, or it touches my lips. I become so disgusted with myself. I have to cover the mirrors in my bathroom when I shower because my body makes me want to cry.

5. “I’m terrified of exposing myself”

I have a large labia and because of that I’m afraid of being with anyone else. I’ve never been with a man, but the way I look is holding me back. I’ve only been with girls. I know that there’s been men on reddit saying that they don’t care what it looks like, but I’m terrified of exposing myself to someone and seeing a surprised or disgusted look on their face. I want to get surgery to make it more attractive.

6. “I’ve noticed I like Charlie too”

I didn’t notice it until it was pointed out to me by my boyfriend and my housemates that Charlie fancies me. It didn’t bother me at first because it seemed easy enough to handle, I would just ignore it, and it would go away after a while. My little brother used to do this with a lot of my friends; it rarely lasted longer than 3-4 weeks.

The problem is that over time I’ve noticed I like Charlie too.

At first I thought it was maternal, his parents don’t give a sh*t about him and I felt sorry for him, I’d take him home with me if I could.

But now I can’t stop thinking about him, I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, and everyday my boyfriend seems less and less appealing. The best relationship of my life is deteriorating because I’m falling for a child… 7 years younger than me.

7. $$$

The total balance of my three bank accounts is less than a dollar. Everyone thinks I have it together, but I lost my job and am about to get slammed with legal fees over a crime I didn’t commit.


8. The Diet

Well, beginning of the school year, we decided that we were a bit too fat for our liking. We’re about 5’10 (me) and 5’8 (her). So we started “The Diet”…which we had done before, but we kind of forgot about it after a while. Well we were serious and stuck to it. I was 160, she was 140.

At first, her goal weight was 120, mine 120 too. Basically The Diet entails that we stay under our BMR…way under…around 500 kcals a day. There’s some misc. rules, such as hardly any carbs, lot’s of protein, minimal fats, vitamins. At first we knew the consequences…now we’ve seemed to have forgotten them, each day, she says “there’s no visible consequences, it’s worth it” and I nod and agree. I went from 160 to 148 in just 3 weeks of restricting. I’ve been doing it for a long time, but I’ve been yo-yoing. The Diet seems to bring out my binging side, and once I binge I can’t stop for days. I’m at 153 right now, and honestly plan on being 110 by summer.

She does too, but she’s 112 right now. And it’s taking a toll on her health. She’s passed out and hit her head and had to get stitches. She’s cold all the time, her immune system is depleted. And, even though that’s happening to her, I can’t help but be jealous. I see her, and I see skinny. Thigh gap, flat stomach. But it’s not enough The Diet mentality makes it so it’s never enough. She still sees fat.

9. The Tape

Well it is a complicated story but the gist of it is that I took video of my best friend’s girlfriend naked, but that isn’t even the half of it. That girl who I videotaped naked happen to be the sister of my girlfriend of three and a half years. This was years ago but it took almost two years to come out into the open. My (ex) best friend told everyone I knew what I had done. I lost all of my friends and am now alone and depressed. I was forgiven half a year later by the (ex) best friend, but this stupid choice by me has cost me so much. I’m all alone in a new city afraid my past will follow me the rest of my days.

10. Best Friend

I’ve been in a relationship with my boyfriend for over 3 years. It’s pretty serious, I suppose. Since the beginning of it, I have been devastatingly attracted to his best friend. In fact, I’ve been attracted to his best friend longer than him. And I haven’t gotten over it.

I know it’s just hormones and lust, but it hurts sometimes to know that I might have made the wrong choice and that can never be changed. Please note that I do love my boyfriend, I really do. I just can’t get over this stupid attraction to his best friend. 🙁

11. Virginity

I lost my virginity to my first girlfriend when I was 19. I didn’t want to have sex yet, but she was 17 and threatened to tell her dad and have me arrested for statutory if I didn’t go along.

I told my next girlfriend, when I was 24, that I was a virgin, and have been pretending that lie ever since.


12. Serial Dater

A little over a year ago I found a site where guys bragged on the dating fortunes using CL. I tried and ever since I have become addicted to posting ads. I have dated close to 55 different woman, almost 1 per week and sometimes, two to three per week. Of the group, I had relationships with about 12, most a one time thing.

13. Toyboy

My mums friend (A milf) comes onto me in a jokey way every time she sees me, grabs and slaps my ass if I’m near or walk past her, makes sexual references about me and her even with others around, and calls me “her toyboy”


14. What? Why?

Sometimes when I’m drunk I pee on the faucet in the bathroom. So when someone else finishes washing their hands and turns the water off, they now have my piss on their hands. I feel bad about it sometimes, but I just can’t help myself.

15. “I want to experience as many as I can”

When I was around 10 years old a friend of mine showed me his mom’s porn. It was a Hustler magazine (pretty hardcore to see first IMO) and it fascinated me. Obviously they focus pretty intently on the vagina in Hustler and it created this weird fascination/addiction in me.

I became fascinated with vaginas and promptly started reading/learning everything I could about them. Down the line this has turned into a full blown obsession with pleasuring women. During sex I no longer care if I even cum as long as they do. I’ve perfected my skills to the point that several women have told me they can’t even masturbate themselves as well as I can for them. The negative part to all of this is that I have become obsessed with sleeping with as many women as possible simply for the fact that all vaginas are different and I want to experience as many as I can. Sadly this has resulted in me stacking up a rather embarassing list of previous lovers that kind of eats me up inside a little. I always wonder if I’m some kind of freak…


16. Sexual Tension

So, this has been going on for a while. My wife has this totally hot friend and she comes over frequently. Usually my wife drinks too much and passes out wherever she sees fit. This leaves me and the friend to our own demise.

There has always been a sexual tension between us. One night when this happened I took the friend upstairs. To fuck her. When I got up there I couldn’t do it, felt too guilty. So I told her she was amazingly pretty and went to bed.

She came over again one night and the usual happened, wife got too drunk and passed out. Sexual tension started building and before I knew it, my finger was in her pussy. It was awesome! It made me feel alive again. I have never even kissed her, but I’ve finger banged her. Totally rad! I don’t know if I would want to make out with her, I don’t want to be with her at all, I just want to satisfy my lust for her I guess.

I would totally do it again if the opportunity presented.

17. Stereotypes

I am a black high school student living in a majority white town in New England. I have lived in this town all my life and I guess you could say I “talk white”, whatever the hell that means. In my school, there is only a few black kids that live in the town. They’re all good kids. All the other black kids that attend my high school get bused in from a large city 15 miles north of us. There is a program that allows inner city kids to attend school in rich suburbs with good school systems. Most of these kids are dumb, loud, obnoxious trouble makers. They accentuate the black stereotypes soooo hard. Most of them are bad kids, but then again, there are a couple that I’m pretty good friends with who were all raised in good, hardworking families. I just hate most of the kids from the inner city because they make me look bad just because they’re the same color as me. It makes me really mad that I get instantly grouped in with them just because we have the same skin color. This has rolled over outside of school too. I just try to avoid black people in general because I always assume that they will be ghetto, loud and rude. Ugh.


18. Sexual Blackmail

Nothing would make me happier than a very attractive member of the opposite sex track me down and blackmail me into having sex with them. And then developing mutual stockholm syndrome feelings for each other.

I read a fucking lot of feminist literature. I am super pro-women’s rights. But still. I want to be desired by someone I find desirable to the point where they are willing to break a lot of societal rules to have me.
