People Confessed Their Dark Secrets Online That They're Afraid To Tell Others

Some people have some deep, dark secrets. Some of us discuss them in therapy, while some of us take it to the grave and never tell a soul.

But, once in a while an online thread will pop up and ask us to dish our deepest, darkest secrets and we can't help but want to share them with the whole world.

"I did a two-hour online test for college and we had to stay on camera for the whole two hours until everyone was done.

The problem was I [pooped] myself half an hour into the test and sat in my own [pooped] not allowed to move and if I did move everyone would see I [pooped] myself.

So I waited until everyone was done and got marks done and could turn off the cameras.

I got 100% in the test," said False-Memory-8109.

"I cried over bell peppers today. I always made my dad stuffed orange bell peppers on Halloween. I would cut the little jack o lantern faces out and everything. He’s been dead for three years but today for a second in the grocery store I thought oh that’s right I need orange bell peppers," said beatenseagull.

"I’m unhappy in my marriage, but still love my wife. I think if we met today we wouldn’t even date, much less be married but the thought of leaving her for my own happiness makes me sick to my stomach. She constantly says how happy I make her, how much she loves me, that she couldn’t live without me. And I love her back, we are just so different," said Burnerreddit12345.

"My wife cheated on me a few months back. She claims it was just one kiss and dirty texts but who really knows the extent of her infidelity besides him and her. I was beyond stupid and ignored all warning signs. I have told no one and it happened about 4 months ago," shared Redditor-7D.

"My giant sexy engagement ring is a created diamond. You (my dear coworkers) all love it to death and go on about how amazing it is because you think my fiance dropped $10,000 on it.

It cost $50 on Ebay and I love it because it's SCIENCE and not DeBeers," said Johndoe448.

"I have a husband and two toddlers that I love deeply and would give my life for.

But I often fantasize about running off and traveling the world. Not having to wake up every morning to a 2 year old and 1 year old while my husband soundly sleeps just sounds like pure bliss to me," said I_am_dean.
