Today, my boyfriend, who doesn't wear deodorant and has horrible dandruff, decided to shower for the first time in nearly a week because he got invited out to a bar. He didn't even invite me to go with him. FML

Just think of all the staph on his skin! He has no self respect and no respect for you. Hopefully he at least washes his undercarriage daily?'

I think her name explains it all.

OP being with anybody that wants to be with you is not better than being alone. You're not perfect and I'm not suggesting you set impossible standards but if your bf has these quirks that aggravate/hurt/frustrate you regularly, what's the point of being with him?

She's probably only with him for his looks (besides the dandruff), his money, or because she's desperate and/or she needs a guy to feel good about herself.

Well, ImaginaryFoe, normally I would say that perhaps the other things she likes about him outweigh the superficial dandruff or BO. However, if the one time he decides to clean himself up is when he's not with her, it looks like he's on the prowl for something else. If she's not down with that then she needs to skedaddle. As you say, being with someone who doesn't value you is not better than being alone.
And you can't have awesome sex if you're holding your nose and wiping away falling dandruff.

EW op. I'm sorry but ur man sounds nasty. I kinda think u r too for being with him. make him shower daily regardless of what's goin on. properor at decent hygiene should b important in ur life and relationship.

Was totally thinking that! Fail for not bathing or washing his hair, he's described like a homeless man why make the effort to be with him, he sure doesn't do the same.

Exactly what I was thinking! Ew OP, looks aren't everything but personal hygiene is. Do not confuse the two, and for sure don't have such low standards. If he doesn't use deo, or wash his hair and body, he probably doesn't brush his teeth either...think about that next time you kiss your boyfriend. Yeah, FYL, but you so deserve it.

My husband doesn't smell either. It pisses me off a little. He's Korean. Is it an Asian thing or just a coincidence?

I suspect OP's boyfriend is not so lucky, though, or she wouldn't have mentioned the lack of deodorant.

Asians have a few body differences from the other races. They’re less susceptible to lung cancer, more susceptible to disease caused by being overweight, and most of them have far smaller areas that produce body odor. That’s why it’s often hard to find a deodorant strong enough for other races in Asian countries.

that's really gross. not even having basic hygiene standards could be a dealbreaker. and the fact that his weekly shower is in honor of his friends but he doesn't care about being filthy around you? not okay...

I feel like the one thing grosser than the smell of dirty smelly dude body odor is cologne dumped over wouldn't cover it up, it just makes the overall smell stronger.. lol what's the point unless he showers and uses deodorant first.

@15 He might very well be showering but just has a glandular problem. I know many people with this. They just need a stronger antiperspirant, instead of a deodorant. Of course, he could just be nasty. Who knows?
