Today, I had to explain to my boyfriend why chewing "shit-tons of gum" is not an actual alternative to brushing his teeth. FML

4 out 5 dentists agree that your boyfriend will have Summer Teeth. Some are here... Some are gone.

He needs to invest in a toothbrush and toothpaste instead of getting gum for a while.

No shit, Sherlock. Although I'd say forever rather than a while...

I don't understand why people wouldn't want to brush their teeth! Especially when you're in a ,relationship .

Relationship or not, always brush. It make no difference whether you are in a relationship, be clean.

It'd be a hell of a lot cheaper to buy a tube of toothpaste and a toothbrush than going through a pack of gum every couple of days or so.

Especially considering our modern diet which is horrible for tooth decay.

Sorry guys I realized I stated the obvious, but I'm sure someone else would have said the same thing or close to it at one point or another. Sorry for stating the obvious about it.

I agree with #1 and if he doesn't, stop kissing him and maybe dunp him for someone more mature.

Yes, because dunping your boyfriend is always the best option.

Hygiene FMLs keep popping, I really makes me wonder if some people are really raised by and have no consideration for their own bodies and the people around them. I mean, come on twice a day, you learn it in kindergarden.

Kindergarten. Sorry, had to go in spelling nazi mode.

You also learn not to smoke and do drugs in Kindergarten and look at how many people still do these things.

That could be a problem especially since you're also paying for it when you kiss him... So gross. Try to have him see from your point of view! Ask him how he would like it if you stopped brushing your teeth and kissed him

He probably won't listen to reason if he has his mind set on it. -_-

Didn't you notice the smell or the rot ?

Gum won't prevent bad breath. It actually makes it worse after a while.

And chewing gum can help cause cavities, so it doesn't prevent the rot either.

Pretty soon it will be apparently. The military are working on making a chewing gum to be used instead of a toothbrush.

It also is not good for your stomach as it fools it into producing too much acid. :(

Lol I don't know if anyone else commented this because I haven't read the comments yet, but did anyone else get a for seriously case of the lulz because the OP is from the UK? Lol hahahahaha haha!

Give him a big kiss in the morning after a long night out he will get the idea bad breath is down right disgusting

Or her bad breathe will mix with his bad breathe and he won't even notice. I kind of want to vomit after this.
