Do you have a boyfriend or spouse that smell bad? How do you deal with it? How do you ask him to have a better hygiene? Nobody wants an unpleasant smell especially if the stink is your loved ones. But sometimes the one who can smell you is the one who is more ashamed to tell directly that you are stink because they are afraid to hurt other people feelings. But the question is how to tell your man that he stinks without hurting his feelings. Here is some way to tell your man that he stinks.
Tell him privately And Gently
You are a girlfriend so it means it’s your job to tell him about his smell, don’t tolerate his smell because you are afraid to hurt his feelings. Can you take unpleasant smell every time you are together? You met him online or offline and since the first date, you know that he is stink but you cannot tell it because you are shy and afraid to hurt him. He is a man I’m sure he can take your advice and criticism. I and my husband are open to each other and brutally honest, if we smell something we are blunt to tell it directly and sometimes teasing each other if we smell something unpleasant because if you love each other there is no point to be shy and not to tell the truth. And one thing you should know is if other people smell your partner they can say you are not a good partner because you can’t even teach your partner to take a shower and you can’t take care of him.
Throw Some Humor On Him
Humor is the best way to do when you want to say something to your boyfriend that you cannot tell in a serious way. By opening a joke, you can finish with helpful information and let him know that it’s beneficial for him when he goes out around other people. If you come at him in a humorous manner about a hygiene problem it won’t seem so harsh. Boyfriend is the best joker in every couple, so this time it’s your turn to do a joke for him. I actually always do that to my sisters and cousin’s if I want to say something that I cannot tell directly, good thing they can pick up the hints easily lol! Your problem is if your partner doesn’t like to laugh and hard to accept a joke. There are some men doesn’t have a sense of humor, they are boring and not fun to be with, they also want a feminine girlfriend and being a funny girl is not their type.
Give Him A Compliment
Compliment him if he smells good, doing that he will always make himself smell good. Sometimes, men smell stink because of their work or they eat something or because of a cigarette. The problem to them is they remain stink because they are tired to take a shower or brush their teeth after a long day at work. If that’s the case it means if there is special gathering to the family or friends they can be clean and smells good, that’s your time to keep on complimenting them and tell him that you love his smell and hope they are smell like that every day because you love it. Men love compliment especially if it’s from their partner.
Offering Relevant Stuff
You may be shy to tell your man that he stinks, but you can offer stuff to him that doesn’t make him feel offensive. Offer him candies like mentos or Tic Tac or any fresh mint candies that makes him fresh breath that helps him breathe a little smell good. And if your problem is body odor or maybe the smell is coming from his clothes, offer him cologne or buy new clothes for him when you shop together and if the smell of his feet is horrible give him new socks or any other stuff that helps to stop the bad smell of his feet. You can do any ways how to offer something you know that might not be offensive, and if he like it encourage him to buy more like a pack of mentos or more cologne and new clothes or even soap, toothpaste etc. Just do anything you know that can help him to smell good because you can also benefit if your offer to him works. You can bribe him with that stuff and tell him that you like him to use it, you like the smell of his soap, deodorant, or perfume if he is using it but do not mention that you give that stuff to him because he stinks.
Sometimes one of the best ways to let a man know about a specific hygienic problem is asking a bait question. Like ” what’s that smell” or “do you smell something”. Just pretend that you don’t know what’s that stink even if you know what exactly what it is. Then smell your mouth or armpit, for sure he will do the same if he sees that you are trying to find what’s the stink. If you both smelling and checking each other, it’s your time to pretend that you already found what is stink, which is him. Doing that he will get conscious and take initiative to make himself clean and smell good. He will be alarm and shy to you and to other people that might smell him.
Honest Approach With Love And Care
To be honest is the hard thing we can do to people we know that has a hygienic problem especially if the person is not our family, boyfriend or close friends. If the person is just a workmate it’s so hard to tell him that he is stink because it might be offensive, I remember when I told to my workmate that her feet are stink but I said it in a polite way, she gets upset and stop talking to us but eventually said sorry to her childish attitude, and the good thing is she followed our advice that is why no more stinky feet to our work after a week.
Now it’s time to be real to your man, do the honest approach with love and care to him. Explain to him that you love him, you care about him and wants the best for him. Talk to him without anyone around you much better if you are inside the house. Being blunt is good but show respect to him too, talk to him in a very polite way. Some may take the honest approach as offensive and some may take it helpful. You’ll never know until you see his reaction.
Final Smell Thoughts
Dealing with a partner with a hygienic problem is not a good thing, sometimes it can be a cause of break-ups. If your girlfriend or wives is weak she may be sure breaking up with you if you continue ignoring her about her stinky concern. It may be a funny reason for break-ups but it is a serious problem that maybe most men don’t know that they make them girlfriend or wife suffer. Nobody wants an unpleasant smell especially if the unpleasant smell is from our loved ones. Be happy if your partner is telling you the truth if you are stink because that only means she loves you and she is concern about you. Don’t let your bad smell ruin your relationship, listen to your girlfriend or wife if she teaches you some remedy and wants to resolve your issue. Don’t feel offended if she is helping you because If she has no care for you it only means she doesn’t love you. Be happy that there is someone willing to take care of you. For sure she loves you because ever since your first date with her she knows already that you are stink but she still chose to stay with you because she loves you and smell can easily resolve if men listen and accept that he has a hygienic problem, because sometimes men resist acknowledging that there is something wrong with them, their ego is higher than the sky.
