13 People Confess Their Unbelievable Secrets That No One Knows About

When it comes to creepy stories, Reddit is basically the holy grail. There's something so morbidly satisfying about confessional horror stories from real people on the internet. Maybe the anonymity implies there's no limit to what people will share. Or maybe you just know it's (probably) all true. Or perhaps you start wondering who in your life has stories like these. It's why the internet exists. 

Whatever the reason, people want to share their secrets online, and other folks love to read them - a win-win for catharsis and entertainment. Some of these secrets are truly spine-tingling. It makes you wonder what's actually going on behind all of the normal facades we see each day. Because the truth is, people are downright creepy. And reading their secrets is enough to give you goosebumps. 

  • Secret Agoraphobia

    From Redditor u/Throwawaythesecrets:

    I've had agoraphobia for a year and a half. I've lied to my parents and told them I still attend college. Fear dominates my life. I had the worst anxiety attack ever a week ago and now have derealization. Every day is a struggle. I'm swimming in lies and don't know how the hell to turn this around.

    Advice to others: don't lie when times get hard and seek help before you think you'll need it. Hitting rock bottom is not a good place to be.

  • Pretending To Finish College

    From Redditor u/HalfEducated:

    I faked the last two years of college education. My parents put so much pressure on me I couldn't handle it (I was suffering from severe depression and anxiety) so I faked it all. Lied to everyone. Made up fake transcripts. I just got my foot in the door in my desired field thanks to a friend as they hired me as a subordinate. This place only hires college grads but no one double-checked my credentials since I was recommended. My hopes is that if I need to find another job I'll have been at this place long enough to get it by experience alone (I work for a very prestigious company). I'm not bad at my job. I'm actually quite good. But my fear is eventually I'll hit a wall and the lie will come to light. No one has known this for the better part of a decade.

    It's a relief to finally say it "out loud." I can't even tell those I love. My silence is my prison.

  • A Feline Encounter

    From Redditor u/throwaway1450:

    This will probably never be seen by anyone but f*ck it. My father once owned a cat who loved to suck our earlobes for whatever reason. About half-a-decade ago my father left me alone in his apartment with his cat and I don't know exactly why but I just grabbed the cat, went in the bathroom with it, laid on my back, put it on my chest and let it suck my earlobes while [touching myself]. I find myself f*cking disgusting when I think about it but I still think that it was one of my best [times].

  • The Stalking That Led To Marriage

    From Redditor u/throw7638:

    I do not have a lot of confidence, and can never ask girls out. I met my current wife by installing a keystroke logger on her computer, and intercepting Facebook messages and chats with her friends until I confirmed she liked me. That way I knew exactly how to approach her. I orchestrated our entire early courtship to my advantage. If she knew she would likely divorce me because I delved deep into her personal life and found out some crazy things about her past.
