Pump up the Pretty Little Liars theme music, because today we're reading all about the secrets people are taking to the grave. Folks over at Reddit have been spilling true stories of unshared secrets and they range from pretty damn dark to somewhat comical. These threads cover the gamut - everything from interfamilial relationships to infidelity to cheating on a test.
Some of these secrets get downright creepy. After all, people share their darkest secrets under the anonymity of the Internet. One can't help but wonder what secrets you'd take to the grave and how they measure up to these sordid confessions.
Hypocritical Family Members Don't Deserve Kept Secrets
"Probably not going to the grave with it because [I'm] sure the rest of my family will find out about this (some family already knows and that[']s how I found out) but I just found out that my homophobic/racist as f*** step-brother who is a marine has been doing gay porn for the last few years.
Apparently, he is one of this sites['] top stars or whatever and it all has a military theme. I just found this out 3 days ago.."
What's The Rule With Non-Blood Relations?
"When I was a freshman and my stepmom was drinking at the time, she gave me a kiss on [the] lips (full blown) just because she felt bad for the way she treated me in middle school and got in a wreck while being drunk. Me, being a little stupid, I let myself get carried away and made out with her for like a good 10 minutes.
My dad popped in. Broke it off right before he actually saw it. Let's just say that was the first person I actually kissed."
Fake Four Eyes
"When I was like... 10 or 11, a lot of my classmates got glasses. I thought they were pretty cool, so I faked having myopia in order to get glasses as well. I wasn't too dumb [though], I pretended that I could see better with lenses that had a small diopter so they didn't actually damage my eyesight.
The downside was that my parents thought using the computer had something to do with it, so they didn't allow me to use it anymore."
"In high school, I had a friend in the grade below me that was very awkward and generally horrible with girls. One day my best friend and I decided to prank text him […] posing as a new girl, one that didn't exist, at school. He asked to see a picture of her face, so we snapped a photo of a girl's face on the cover of the nearest DVD -- he completely fell for it. At this point we thought it was hilarious, so later we ended up sending him an "ass" picture that was really the crease of my elbow...he fell for it again. Sometimes his texts would get pretty raunchy, but thankfully he never tried to send any pictures. He began bragging at school about how he was hooking up with a transfer student and how they had sex all the time […] Over Christmas break, his mother went through his phone and found all of his texts to this "girl" and grounded him for the entirety of his break […] We gradually stopped texting as much, and eventually the conversations halted altogether.
For the next year, he continued to brag about all the nudes, blowjobs, and sex he was receiving from the imaginary girl. We've never told anyone about this, so none of our classmates know that he was utterly full of cr*p."
