Real Women Admit: "I'm Embarrassed of My Boyfriend"Not sure that your boyfriend is exactly ready for primetime, as in meeting your friends and family or proclaiming your love from the rooftops? Five women share how they've been embarrassed about their significant other.
"I had an ex who was so hairy, I refused to go to the beach with him until he let me Nair his back. The whole time I shrieked, 'Eww, eww,' as he laughed and told me to rub harder if I wanted it all to come off."
—Kristin, 26, Park City, Utah
"For a few months I dated someone who, I'm pretty sure, thought he was a vampire. He watched only sci-fi shows and was obsessed with biting me on the neck. Once after fooling around, my shoulders were aching. When I took a look, they were covered in black-and-blue teeth marks!"
—Cassie, 32, Washington, D.C.
"The person I'm 'seeing' is truly nice, loving and good-hearted. The problem? He smokes pot like it's his job; his favorite word starts with an F; and he begins every sentence with 'You know what I'm saying?' though he clearly hasn't said anything yet. Oh, and he's a convicted felon — and my dad is a corrections officer. Yeah, I'd be horrified if anyone in my family found out, but I have a soft spot for him, so we hang out every day at his house, even though we can never officially be together."
—Ann,* 22, Wallingford, Conn.
"I used to secretly rendezvous with this guy who was way shorter than me, but I could have gotten past that. The real reason I never let on that we were seeing each other was that his breath was horrible. When everyone talked about how bad it was, I would play along, knowing good and well this same breath would be all over my body later that evening. It was so wrong, I know, but that little man had it going on in the bedroom!"
—Allisha, 33, Raleigh, N.C.
"A guy I was with for four years always had on one of his 20-plus baseball caps — even when we went to the theater. Everyone else would be all dressed up, and he'd look like a frat boy … a balding, in-denial, too-old frat boy."
—Mary, 39, San Diego
