What do you do for you SO that other people might find weird? (self.TwoXChromosomes)

I cut my BF's toenails whenever I cut mine. If I didn't, he'd hack at them with scissors or something.
I also tweezer unruly ear hairs.
Your turn :)

I legitimately rubbed hemorrhoid cream on my boyfriend's swollen butthole while he bent over my bed and spread his cheeks apart. I would do anything for him.
[–]menstruosity 80 points81 points82 points 1 year ago
Upvoted because true love is gross sometimes.
[–]seedlesstom 36 points37 points38 points 1 year ago
BF here for confirmation.
[–][deleted] 16 points17 points18 points 1 year ago
Haha, I love you babe. I'm glad your butt isn't hurty/itchy anymore!
[–]seedlesstom 17 points18 points19 points 1 year ago
Me too! Thanks for taking care of my butt for me.
[–][deleted] 13 points14 points15 points 1 year ago
I will take care of all your parts, forever!
[–]courtiebabe420 12 points13 points14 points 1 year ago*
And you have both been tagged in RES as Hemorhoid BF/GF. That'll be fun to look out for! :)

It's an honor.

This is too cute! Stop it! :-)
[–]ikwhatutellurself 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
this. my bf's butt hurt once and he had me look at it and it was sure enough a rhoid. i actually can't remember what we did to treat it.
[–]higginsnburke 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
Blocked out the memory eh?
[–]elky25 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
hahahaha its the delivery and bluntness that made this beautiful! Id do the same for mine to be honest.
[–]Cozen 46 points47 points48 points 1 year ago
I do blackhead removal on his back. I get a sick joy out of it so it is great for both of us. He can do his own nails though ;)
[–][deleted] 17 points18 points19 points 1 year ago
apes get chemical highs (ya know, endorphins and such) from communal grooming, and we're nothing but apes with lasers.
[–]ProbablyNotJohnSaxon 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I always liked "apes with better hammers", cuz, well... those other great apes never came up with Craftsman tools.

[–]msktty89 32 points33 points34 points 1 year ago
My husband went through a cross-dressing phase (which may or may not return, he is undecided). I helped him shave his legs, butt, and all the other fun stuff more than once. We chatted and laughed the whole time. I'd do it again, too.
I'm pretty sure other people would find this a bit strange.
[–]BurningBright 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago
I find it beautiful.

[–]OneUglyDogAndMe 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
I gave my man a glittery red pedicure this weekend at his request. We also share a communal pile of thigh-high rainbow striped socks. I completely understand where you're coming from and think it's totally sweet.
[–]msktty89 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Haha, I have let my husband wear a skirt of mine for an evening before, but then we went to Goodwill so he'd have his own. :) I think he's adorable either way.
That's really cool about sharing the socks, hehe.
[–]mamid 25 points26 points27 points 1 year ago
Years ago, I went after and drained a youtube worthy pimple/cyst/armpit thang. It STUNK, but it had to be done. He had a mass under one of his armpits the size of a marble if not bigger and it had to come out. His doctor was on a "wait and see" but I could tell my poor guy was not happy. So, I groomed, plucked, isolated and found the right hair that was plugged and pulled that. A white mass was immediately at the surface and so I started to squeeze. And squeeze and squeeze. Very gross. Very stinky. Very puke worthy and I got it out. I don't get grossed out by the youtube videos, so long as there isn't a ton of blood with them.
[–]akastrobe 10 points11 points12 points 1 year ago
I think I just threw up a bit reading that. You are one HELL of a SO! :D
[–]21Celcius 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
I did this for a patient, it was on his back and the doctor was using the wrong technique of pushing rather than the milking way. I must have gotten enough out to be the size of a large bouncy ball. The man was so sweet and I had to say "I don't want to offend you but I need to take a breather" because my normally cast iron gut was churning. Ack.
[–]julieb123 51 points52 points53 points 1 year ago
Pop pimples on his back. He and I are both gross enough to be like, "Oh! A thing on my body! Get a needle and some tweezers!" but he obviously can't reach his back. BUT I CAN!!
Last week he told me I could start him on a hand/nail care regiment as well as a skin care one :D Woo!
[–]churlish_curls 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
I pick at the boything like crazy..... Once I noticed that he had a ton of ingrown hairs on his butt. They were all tiny, light hairs, nothing big or grossly obnoxious, but I attacked them with tweezers. He said it was weird, but oddly soothing, lol.
[–]Raddpixie 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I do the same for my SO! We pick at each other all the time and it's so satisfying when you pop a big whitehead.
[–]libertango 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I need to get my bf on a nail care regimen! He bites his nails like crazy! And when it's time for foreplay and sexytimes...ouch :-(
He tried clear nail polish once (my sister did it over Christmas. It was adorable), but was incredibly off-put by how shiny his nails became.
[–]Ericakes 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Did the clear nail polish work for him? My boyfriend bites his nails something awful as well.. and I always feel like a parent when I say "please stop!".. it's just such a bad (and unhygienic) habit :(
[–]libertango 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Unfortunately not :-( he was freaked out about his shiny nails, so he picked it all off :-/
[–]finder90 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
You guys could try putting nail polish remover on his nails. It won't make his nails looks weird, but it leaves a really disgusting taste on your fingers for hours.
Also a good plan :-) I will relay these to him!
[–]rachel_profiling 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My boyfriend bit his nails constantly until a few months ago. He had been doing it since he was about four (so 23 years) and his parents couldn't break him of it. I picked up a bottle of Bite No More at Sally Beauty and he stopped biting them in about two months. It took a lot of willpower on his part as well, but I think this product works wonders as a deterrent.
Hmm, I will have to suggest that to him. Thanks!
[–]ItAteMySweater 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My SO actually does this to ME (and I'm a girl), and he gets all the blackheads/whiteheads on my back and shoulders that I can't reach. He's very thorough.
[–][deleted] 1 year ago
[–]squishypoo91 17 points18 points19 points 1 year ago
Same for me. I take mental pictures of all his stuff so when he asks I can tell him EXACTLY where it is.
"Babe, I can't find my keys!"
"They're on the left side of your book sitting on the chair by the turtle tank"
He thinks I'm magical
[–]libertango 7 points8 points9 points 1 year ago
He thinks I'm magical
"Shit. I lost my red colored pencils. Gonna have to buy a new pack."
"Pretty sure I saw them in your black hamper."
"Really?" (Goes to check. Miraculously, they appear under his dirty clothes.)
i sleep with skype on (LDR)
[–]DarknessWithin 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I've done that before, but we use MSN messenger.
[–][deleted] 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I ask my BF to let me sleep on skype. We're 3 hours apart so by the time I'm conked out it's his bedtime.
HAHAHAHA! Cracking up. That's awesome.
[–]artifactos_ohio 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
I, honestly, have always wanted to do that. I'm weird.
[–]BurningBright 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I told mine I was jealous and he let me aim while he peed in the shower. It was really fun and I love him so much for being weird with me.
[–]meowkittehmeow 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I've done this to past boyfriends without it being necessary. No shame!
I thought I was just some freaky dominating amazon lady for making it happen with boyfriends.. haaaa :) i love 2X.. making me not feel so crazy
[–]BaconBlossom 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
OMG I did that once! Only then I got excited and a little got on the floor. Now every time he pees, I lurk around and ask if I can hold it!
[–]karma___police 12 points13 points14 points 1 year ago
Fingernails. He always kept them clean and trimmed, but he never did anything about his cuticles. I LOVE giving myself manicures (hello /r/redditlaqueristas), and one day I brought all my nail shit downstairs and said, "I'm giving you a manicure."
I've been doing it once a week ever since.
[–]SherpaLali 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago
Hee. My boyfriend fell asleep with his feet on my lap while I was painting my nails. I painted just one toenail to see how long it would take him to notice, then it became a game to do as many as I could without him waking up. (And the polish was the exact same color as his pants... I couldn't resist!)
We were at Burning Man so there was no remover for miles. I giggled about it all week.

TIL I'm the only man alive who can cut his own toenails.
[–]wearmyownkin 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago
My husband can too, but it requires nagging. Toenails themselves don't bother me but his become talons quickly. Not fun at night under covers
[–]PhamLives 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
that's gross. I trim my toenails all the time.
[–]wearmyownkin 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Lol. I hardy have to! My toenails grow really slow. To paint the picture-I can get my nails painted and the nail polish moves maaaybe .5cm in a month. My fingernails are quick though. Should /r/askscience why...
[–]PhamLives 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
hah, my fingernails and toenails grow really fast, and strong too. I tore a toenail off maybe 6 weeks ago, where my dog had damaged the root. it's completely grown back in now.
[–]entertainmeorelse 6 points7 points8 points 1 year ago
Aaaaauughh my toes hurt when I read that.....
[–]CodexAngel 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
My hubby is the same way. I usually have to ask him for about 3 damn days before he'll do it. He always asks me why, and I tell him I don't like bleeding from my legs because I had the audacity to sleep in the same bed as you!
[–]doomcoffee 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I have to laugh. I'm XX but am notorious for "raptor toes" too. current fellow came over one day, gently placed a pair of clippers in my hand and just smiled til I got the message and clipped my toes.
Typical tunnel-visioned, absent minded academic, I suppose :P
[–]rach42389 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Thankfully my bf and I are both ballet dancers and if our toenails get too long it's painful and we run the risk of bruised toenails. Nothing like a little fear to motivate. :-)
[–]ProbablyNotJohnSaxon 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I have to cut my toenails because they grow in really weird, pointy shapes and are liable to result in a bloodbath if not constantly monitored.
[–]KOAN13 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Me too. I can't imagine letting anyone else do it... why!?
[–]crazy4purple23 11 points12 points13 points 1 year ago

[–]pinkraspberry 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago

[–]pipkin227 12 points13 points14 points 1 year ago
Universally, we're just nasty together. Nothing is off limits.
Diarrhea while the other showers? Check.
Both peeing into the same toilet out of drunken necessity? Check.
Popping pimples? Check.
Routinely, I will fetch him reading material for the particularly long dump.
On the flip side, I am not allowed anywhere near his toenails.
[–]randpand 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
This is terrifying.
[–]OneUglyDogAndMe 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Both peeing into the same toilet out of drunken necessity? Check.
I've been joking for a while that one of these days my man and I will have to do this. We've even talked out the logistics. Makes me laugh my ass off every single time.

I am the designated spider killer in our house. I get to regularly remind my husband that I just saved his life.
[–]missinfidel 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
Same with us. I'm not fond or arthropods, but he has a flat out phobic response to spiders. Living in south Florida, the deal is I will take care of the spiders if he takes care of the palmettoes and waterbugs.
I thing I won in that deal.
[–]enits_me 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
hahaha, love the kill bugs with wings part ;)
[–]dol1house 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
He is TERRIFIED of flying bugs. It is kinda adorable.
[–]NekoLaw 43 points44 points45 points 1 year ago
I treat him like an adult who is capable of caring for his children (from a previous marriage), running his own business, making his own food, choosing his own clothing and handling his own hygiene.
Believe it or not, I get a lot of flack from some people for that (especially the kids and cooking).
[–]balkybetty 6 points7 points8 points 1 year ago

Feh. Turns out he's surprisingly good at living his own life. Who knew?!
[–]cxherry 7 points8 points9 points 1 year ago
My ex used to have me shave his back/chest hair for him. My old room mates used to tease about it at first, but it then ended up with me being the go to person for chest/back hair shaving/waxing.
[–]lizzehness 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I do this for mine. Remember Nads? I tried that once on him. it made him bleed a lot and cry a little. so glad i tried it on him first. haha.
[–]failsafe0 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago
I read books to him. It's not disgusting, it's just not common. I read him the whole Harry Potter series.
[–]fortune_cell 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
When we were in an LDR, briefly, he would read fairy tales to me over skype. Now I read to him if we're driving somewhere, since he's always the one who drives.
[–]failsafe0 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Yeah, I like that. I once read to a boyfriend because we had an hour-long ride from the bookstore to my house and it was a book we both REALLY wanted to read.
[–]fortune_cell 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Yep! Plus it's that or listen to sports radio :P
[–]OneUglyDogAndMe 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Love doing this. My man doesn't read a lot on his own, but he adores being read to. We go through a lot of short stories.
The sweetest thing that he does, though, is read to me whenever we're on a road trip and I'm driving, or if I'm feeling under the weather. He's never outright said anything, but I strongly suspect he doesn't have a solid set of reading skills. He's self-conscious / uncomfortable with reading out loud, and it makes my heart melt whenever he reads to me out of the blue.
[–]failsafe0 -1 points0 points1 point 1 year ago
I'm always a little critical of my man reading aloud :/. He pauses in the middle of sentences when there isn't any pause, and sometimes he doesn't pause at the end of sentences. It's frustrating to follow along. I know he just needs more practice, but if I really want to hear the story, I hate having him do it.
[–]maidenlush 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
Haha I guess we all seem to do the nail care for our SO's. Mine will get fussy if his get too long and whine for me to trim and file them. I also pluck the odd hair or two.
I plucked my bf's first gray hair last week! He had just started student teaching, lol.
[–][deleted] 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
The other night I talked him through how to iron over video chat... I also go over his debate cases for him. We're long distance so it isn't as much physical stuff.
[–]jezebelious 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
That is actually adorable!
[–]tim404 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
My SO had a pimple on her neck that hurt but she couldn't pop it. It didn't go away for a week. So, per her request, I sterilized and proceeded to lance her neck pimple with an exacto knife. Worked like a charm.
It's a real relationship we've got.
[–]jevus2006 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
My girlfriend ties my shoes sometimes.
[–]spacemermaid 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
I pluck my husband's sparse back hairs and his eyebrows, but also closely monitor his freakish arm hair.
[–]CherryCandee 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
OMG my hubby has one exactly on the same spot. He doesn't let me 'kill' it, but I closely monitor it as well.
he also gets 2 strangely long eyebrows, one on each side. Evil eyebrow hairs I call them
[–]spacemermaid 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Hahaha it's spreading to his brain! The best with my husboo's freak hair was when he got knocked over playing sports, and the hair got ripped out. We were both devastated, but then it grew back to full strength in under a month.
I had no idea other people had these too! I have a most unfortunate hair right between my non unibrow eyebrows that will grow forever if I let it, but I keep that sucker plucked pretty religiously, haha.
[–]spacemermaid 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
It's like a baby unicorn horn!!
[–]jezebelious 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Amazing! From now on I shall "pluck my baby unicorn horn", haha.
[–]ikwhatutellurself 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
i clean out my bf's belly button lint a few times a week.
[–]GingeraleNoodles 10 points11 points12 points 1 year ago
I check his belly button for lint, pull it out and show it to him, and then stick it back in his belly button so the lint doesn't get home sick. I'm unsure why I do this/why he lets me do this.
[–]subnaree 12 points13 points14 points 1 year ago
I do his nails too. The other day when I mentioned his fingernails were too long while we were outside, he just ripped them apart, that pretty much reminded me why I do his nails usually.
Also, I take care of his skin with homemade scrubs (that I mostly make for myself, but offer him to rub him down with the leftovers).
Other than that, I occasionally hug his chest tight, squeezing it as hard as I can, to alleviate his asthma :)
[–]whimsical_pizza 12 points13 points14 points 1 year ago
That asthma thing is the sweetest thing ever oh my god
[–]spacemonkymafia 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Serious question, since my guy has asthma as well, how does squeezing his chest help at all? Seems to me like that would just cause more issues?
[–]radams713 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I have asthma and that would make me have an asthma attack. lol
[–]subnaree 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I squeeze it sideways, so that the chest would become more circular as opposed to elliptical. It seems to be much like when he's leaning forwards to let the chest hang free.
[–]dungeonkeepr 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
We manage to stick oddly closely to gender stereotype roles in our relationship - we're both very open minded and that, I just happen to be a cooking/cleaning/housekeeping kind of person and him the fixey/protectey guy.
The weirdest thing I do for him is probably feed him cookies while he plays computer games. And I condition his hair when we shower together, while he's distracted by boobs.
Hahaha, I like the 'distracted by boobs' bit. We always shower together (we currently live in different cities so it's nice) and wash each other's backs, though he gets quite distracted as well.... ;P
[–]dungeonkeepr 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Yeah, we're long distance too, hence why it's so easy to distract my boy with boobs. :D Sadly, we can't shower together that often because of house sharing.
[–][deleted] 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I can't imagine the rest of the people in the house would mind that much ;P thank goodness for boobs. Thank our genes for boobs, really. I love the damned things.
They would, sadly, student housing, thin walls, limited water, one bathroom for us all to share.
Boobs are good, though highly disconcerting when watching TV naked lying down.
[–]Herpbees 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
I scratch him. Like, I scratch his back, his head, his beard, his arms and even his butt. He loves it.
[–]asamat 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Mine loves his thighs and butt to be scratched. He's got a cute little butt. :)
[–]Herpbees 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Mine has no butt lol. We went on vacation to PA to visit my brother with my mom and we were sleeping upstairs while my mom slept downstairs. She came into the room to get a change of clothes and saw my boyfriend sleeping in his underwear (I hog the blankets) and she said, "Your boyfriend...he doesn't have an ass". I know mom...I know haha!
That's hilarious. My SO likes to claim he has no butt, but I definitely disagree with him.
[–]mfz 7 points8 points9 points 1 year ago
Pay all his bills (and then he transfers the amount to my account). I trim his neck and I used to cut his hair (poor students here) until one day when i cut his ear kinda bad. Guess he decided it was worth the money to have a proper haircut and ears intact.
[–]prismaticbeans 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Fuck, I went down this thread and didn't find anything this bad.
I am loath to admit I have wiped his ass for him. With a wet cloth. Because there was poo on it. And now I'm gonna hide.
Man... just get baby wipes.
Oh my god. I get this. Prepare yourself for TMI!
My man and I have an interesting sex life. He's fastidious when it comes to hygiene, but he's also a big fan of anal play (receiving) and incredibly self-conscious about the potential for accidents - and let's face it, accidents sometimes happen.
So yeah, I never let him know if there's been an accident or . . . residue . . . (Kind of grossed myself out typing that) I just always keep baby wipes or a wet rag by the bed and assume toy cleanup duty before he gets the chance. Love man. Sometimes, it's gross.
[–]prismaticbeans 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Oh, mine likes taking it in the bum too! Except he's not super self conscious. I mean he cleans things all up before we do that, but he mostly just thinks accidents are funny, at least they are when I have to clean up. And we have lots of baby wipes around especially since we have an actual baby. After buttsex we like to be super thorough, though. And sometimes he just randomly requests I sponge bathe his man parts and his butt though. And I love him, so I do. I even use a warm cloth.
[–][deleted] 7 points8 points9 points 1 year ago
These things might be considered weird where I'm from/area I'm in.
[–]BrofessorMarvel 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I give him manicures because otherwise his nails/cuticles get destroyed. I don't do his toes though.
[–]Lilusa 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I pluck ear hairs, make doctor's appointments, and I help him cut his hair (he takes clippers to it.) Not really that weird I guess :/
[–]Miss_mariss87 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I paint my boyfriend's toenails, and cut his hair. We also do face masks together.
[–]groteska 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Yay, nice to know someone else does that!
[–]qwertyboard 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
My mom thought it was weird that I do his dishes. Namely because I fucking hate doing dishes.
[–]CarnyWife 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Helped him extract a boil from a hard to reach place using a glass jar and some steaming hot water. Twice.
I would never do over half the things that I read in this thread. I think it's great that other people do, I just wouldn't. It's probably a reflection of how I am in a relationship. If I'm injured, I'll handle it. If I'm sick, just leave me alone until I'm better. And if I am worried about a medical issue, I'll see my doctor and figure it all out before I tell him. Grooming is done in private, he just gets the result.
It's not that I don't like being taken care of, I do. I just like to handle physical things on my own. And I hope I end up with someone who is okay with that.
[–]dawn14 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I pick the lint out of his belly button. He produces it like crazy.. he can go shirtless all day, but there will still be lint in there at night! In fact, I just picked some out. He was like "I put some lint in there yesterday from the dryer, waiting for you to get it, because it would have been hilarious. But you never did." (all disappointed sounding!)
[–]puddlejumper 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Just a tidbit of info. Lint isn't actually coming from his shirts. It comes from his crotch region. A snail trail is specially designed to move lint and offending particles away from a crotch and deposit them into the belly button. Notice that the hair grows upwards instead of downwards like everywhere else on the body?
[–]dawn14 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
snail trail! that's great! we've always called it a happy trail! and thanks for the info!
[–]shocore 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Ahah I pick at acne on his back and peel off the dry skin on his feet.
I love him.

Help him trim his toenails when he occasionally asks, wax his brows (just a cleanup, nothing ridiculous,) serve his plate of food and bring it to him while he sets up the movie we are going to watch from netflix, and I don't say no to any sexytime advance unless very ill.
[–]Wonder-Girl 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I'll pop pimples for him and I Nair his butt crack too. I guess it isn't too weird. :P
[–]ShawnaNana 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My boyfriend does way more weird things for me than what I do for him. He plucks my eyebrows for me, he cracks my toes, he tries to pop my zits (I usually won't let him, though.)
I guess he's the weird one in the relationship.
[–]sheisaeval 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I've plucked nipple bars and shaved balls.
Oops nipple hairs
[–]cranberres5152 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago*
I powder him when he gets out of the shower.. lol
And on the flipside he brushes my hair for about an hour. :) so relaxing.
[–]MissKatbow 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I pick all his pimples and clean his ears for him. One time I took out a HUGE chunk of ear wax. Then we took pictures of it as proof of the moment.
[–]blamethegoats 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I dig the eye goobers out of his eyes. Not just the solid flaky ones that can be brushed out of his eye lashes, but I'll fully get in there and scoop the goop out of the corners of his eyes. Actually, it's stranger that he's comfortable with me attacking his eyeballs like that. Hmm.
[–]higginsnburke 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My so checked my IUD strings when I could find/reach them, he rubbed my grandfathers back when he was in the hospital sick. Love him dearly.
[–]randpand 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Pluck his eyebrows. He needs it sometimes!
[–]ilysespieces 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I clip the bf's toenail but because he would rather let them grow so long they cut socks than clip them himself. I don't even think he owns a toenail clipper (let alone a normal nail clipper).
He really loves popping my pimples. No pimple is safe from him, and it doesn't matter what we're doing, when he notices one it gets popped. Though sometimes it sucks because he's always had good skin and doesn't understand that sometimes they just don't pop :(
I always want to pluck unruly hairs but he won't let me. I have to sneak attack.
[–]ewoksandcandycorn 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Hmm. I don't think anything I do for my SO is weird, but he does some pretty fantastic things. He'll do almost anything to make me laugh, so we have a lot of ridiculously silly inside jokes that just crack me up. He legit will check for monsters/serial killers/other scary things if I freak myself out over a shadow on the ceiling, even going so far as to make sure my curtains are completely shut and moving my laptop so the blue light that tells me that it's plugged in doesn't freak me out. He lets me use his butt as a heating pad during shark week. And he makes me sleepy mix to burn before bed when I have insomnia.
[–]tinkerfaery 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I used to date a guy who had psoriasis from head to toe... really bad. I used to help clean all the semi-loose skin from his ears, and his scalp. He absolutely loved it.
[–]Meat_Related 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Haha came in here to say the toenails thing, perhaps it's not so strange after all?
I like washing his body and hair while he's sitting in the bath as well.
[–]Higgy24 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I pop pimples as well. I also shave/pluck unruly hairs and sometimes trim him armpit hairs. I'm not a fan of armpit hair. :)
[–]thumpersoldiersgirl 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I pop his pimples, clip his toe nails and finger nails, tweeze hairs, and when we get in the shower I wash him and wash his hair then do my shower.
[–]finalDraft_v012 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I tweeze his eyebrows, and sometimes give him a face massage as I moisturize his face.
I tweeze my boyfriend's eyebrows also. It's a rare occasion that I get his consent to do this, so when I do, I make it count. His face will start to hurt so badly that I can only get one side finished before he makes me stop. Then he's left with lopsided eyebrows.
[–]KiraOsteo 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Try doing it after he showers and then use an ice cube afterwards to numb things out. I do that for myself and I get barely any pain.
My god you're a genius. Thank you.
I'll have to try this the next time I go see him. Now he won't look like he has a worm over one eye and a caterpillar over the other.
Hahaha!!! Mine starts to tear up when I pluck, but usually I can talk him in to finishing because he fears the lopsided brows :P Let's not tell them it's possible to buy small eyebrow shavers that are completely painless!
[–]Tetzel 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My ex-girlfriend lied to me.
The amount of corner-of-the-eye tears that could have been saved had i known this information.
[–]Escapade87 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Searching his head for pimples and popping them, plucking eyebrows, waxing his back, moisturizing his face because he never thinks of using cream, sometimes washing his hair including a nice headmassage.
[–]Picabrix 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
The moisturizer is key! They would get less pimples.
[–]jaywrecks 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
trim unruly ear hair. crossing my fingers he lets me pop his pimples soon.
[–]gattofila 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I do the same for my S.O. He had to tweeze an out-of-control stray cheek hair for me last night that I couldn't get and boy did he not like doing that. Poor guy.
[–]squishypoo91 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I cut his toenails and tweeze his random nose hairs that get really long. He hates the process but I get some sick satisfaction from it. I also love brushing his hair after he's been sleeping on it
[–]SmashedBrotato 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I pop the blackheads on his nose, and I pluck stray hairs from his face for him. I also do all the dishes in the apartment, unless I'm sick because then he won't let me.
[–]supereggytoast 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I pull out his nose hairs with my bare hands when we can't find my tweezers.
[–]yeuxsee 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I like to take his shoes off for him after a long day. It makes me feel nice and we talk while I do it. Also, he has surprisingly nice feet. Sometimes I give him a little foot massage too, but he's super ticklish so I have to sneak it in there, haha.
[–]NetNat 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Pop his toes, tweeze his eyebrows and back hair, trim his armpit hair and nipple hair. My favorite is the toe popping :)
Also TIL we aren't as weird as I thought.
[–]BardLover108 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
My SO and I pluck each other's eyebrows.
[–]Rose1982 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I cut his toe nails. He never asked me to do it, it's just something I like to do. It's a weird "picking at things" obsession I have. Most people think it's gross to touch another person's feet, and I wouldn't want to touch just anyone's feet, but I kind of like working on his and making them look better.
[–]Speech_Less 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
So, so, so many things....but I think that's what makes us great partners! We can do ridiculous stuff for each other that no one else would suspect or guess purely out of love and being 110% comfortable with each other!
[–]masagoroll 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I don't really do anything particular like that for him, because he's a dignified/private kind of person, but my husband brushes my hair for me (not every day, but a lot) and scratches my back. :) If I get into bed and am really tired, he also does all the stuff I would normally do to get myself ready for bed (like bring me water, turn on my fan, etc.)
[–]DevasKate 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
He poops with the door open.
[–]OxymoronParadox 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Not for my boyfriend, but for my brother. He has a mole on the side of his face that grows out a bunch of thick hairs. So once in a while I'll take some scissors and cut them as short as I can get. I would pluck them if a.) he wouldn't throw a hissy fit. b.) its actually really unhealthy to do that to your moles.
[–]Petit_Hibou 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Out of curiosity, how is it unhealthy to pluck hair from moles?
[–]OxymoronParadox 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Something about the hair follicle let sunlight in, and increasing the chances of it being cancerous.
I'm sure there is a better way to explain it. I don't have any sources on me right now, but I'm sure its an easy google search.
[–]fortune_cell 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Naw, it's fine.
awesome. :D TIL
[–]vespagrl[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I've heard that moles with hairs are less likely to be cancerous and can be good luck depending where they are
[–][deleted] 1 year ago*
[–]puddlejumper 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I'm not sure what battening or cocktail means in this scenario. Am I missing some lingo?
[–]fortune_cell -2 points-1 points0 points 1 year ago
Someone you're "casually dating" isn't an SO.
[–]RealHorrorShowLike -5 points-4 points-3 points 1 year ago
Someone you're dating, engaged, married to. Not a fuck buddy or somethin somethin on the side.
[–]cantcatchme 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
i hear ya.
[–]RealHorrorShowLike -2 points-1 points0 points 1 year ago
I don't think we're judgemental, I just think that not caring that he flirts isn't weird, it's kind of rude on his part. It's hard to explain I suppose and it is very different to those of us that aren't in that position. You said casual though which leaves it open for assumptions. I'm in a very committed relationship so I don't get it. I'd be upset if my man was flirting and I knew about it. He'd be upset if I did it. It's courtesy, to me, if you really care for someone you just don't do that.
[–]RealHorrorShowLike 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Well that's not a quirk at all then! You must have something else that one of you does for the other that might be considered odd (:
