For most of us, our best friends are essentially family. They’re always by our side when we truly need them and they’re our most trusted confidants. However, no matter how close you are with your BFF, there are some things that are just better left unsaid.
Reddit asked its audience what secrets they’ve kept from their besties in order to protect their relationship and the responses will seriously blow your mind.
1. jenjenanjuce is tired of picking up the pieces.
She is full of shit about her “psychic powers.” She’s way too clingy and needy. When she finally cut ties with her mentally abusive ex, I packed all of her things and loaded up a large uhaul to get her moved by myself. She sat around the entire time crying repeating “I can’t do this” while I did it. It’s been about two months and I just now found out that three weeks ago she started talking to a new man whom she is already telling she loves. It will end badly. I know it will and I just can’t pick up the pieces again.
2. Grandmere13 didn’t know how to approach a thief.
I never told my friend that I know that her and her boyfriend used to steal food from my house.
Her boyfriend at the time basically stole from everyone and was always getting fired from work for stealing from the till.
The bit that upsets me is that she knew full well that if she needed food, I’d have given it to her. She didn’t need to steal the stuff.
She ditched that boyfriend which is why we’re still friends. (And she doesn’t steal from me anymore.)
3. yous_a_bitch can’t deal with those brows.
I think her eyebrows are too thin and i’m 99% sure if her husband isn’t currently cheating on her, he has and will again. also her husband passed the “alcoholic” stage of problem drinking a long while back and it’s starting to affect how her kids see him.
4. eryaboroy, that would drive us crazy.
Chameleon is not pronounced SHA-meleon.
5. That’d probably be a deal breaker, Septoncellardoor.
I had sex with his sister. Not sure if it’d end the friendship. But he’d be weirded out
6. Goodlittlewitch’s bestie isn’t a fun drunk.
She literally becomes the most annoying person alive when she drinks. Her husband and I have made a team effort of watering down any drink she has just to avoid gatherings where one of us had to listen to her ramble 😂
7. transitivity111 would make the ultimate commitment.
That I would totally marry her if she wanted. Not because I’m particularly attracted to her, but because we’ve known each other so long (20 years) and know each other so well, I know I’ll never be that close and comfortable with anyone else.
8. nivla73 should probably keep that to himself.
The night my best friend met his now wife( of 18 years) I met her about an hour before and she blew me in bathroom at the party we were all at. I saw them making out an hour later after I went to buy cigarettes. I never said a word and neither has she.
9. caitybear has a very dark secret.
I never told her she saved me from killing myself last October.
10. There’s no coming back from that, br4k3r.
I fucked his little sister in high school.
11. Isawyourbutt is probably safe to never speak of that.
I was staying at my friends house who are a couple. One morning I woke up early because I always do, the door to their bathroom area was open more than usual because of a cat. My female friend walks out naked and I just watched as she went to the bathroom to shower. I know I should have looked away or shut the door earlier but I was too mesmerized seeing her naked and couldn’t/didn’t want to move. I’m still close friends with both of them and don’t have the heart to tell them.
12. That’s rather unique, KekForSneks.
That I wrote erotic slash fiction about us online.
13. StalenRos might be in love.
I have the biggest crush on her and it’s driving me crazy.
Edit: I’m also a girl and she has no idea I’m not straight.
14. brooke_94 is in for an awkward conversation.
I’ve seen him on a porn video.
15. So many questions for Koolballs.
Long story short…I slept with my best friends dad.
