When you start dating someone on a regular basis, you start noticing things that you didn’t notice before. People start getting comfortable and possibly aren’t on their A-Game as much as they were in the beginning. Here’s an example of a guy trying to deal with his girl not putting her freshest self forward…
Something really awkward happened recently between me and this girl that I’m seeing. I really like this girl a lot and we have a lot of chemistry. The problem happened during our most recent sexual experience. We started to hook up and I noticed that she had that ‘not so fresh feeling’. She let me know that she came straight to my place after a long day at work so that we’d have more time together, but I always make sure that I’m freshly showered before we hang out. I usually love everything about her, but I was so turned off by her odor this past time that I almost didn’t hook up with her. How do I go about telling her that I’m much more turned on by her when she’s fresh without hurting her feelings?
First off let me say what guts it takes to admit that you were offended by something as sensitive as this. This can be a super awkward situation. There is no easy way to confront this situation. The only real way to bring this up without offending a love-interest is by talking about yourself and your methods of staying fresh. Here are a few things you could do to get the point across to a love-interest…
1. Talk about your personal showering habits in preparation for a date with your love-interest. Mention that you always want to make sure that you’ve showered before you go out with her because after a long day of work you don’t feel like you are at your best. Your love-interest will appreciate the consideration and will hopefully be eager to return the favor.
2. Suggest showering together before a hookup session. If you add showering or even a romantic bubble bath with your love-interest to your hookup routine, you’re sure to add some spice to the situation while eliminating any chance of not being fresh.
3. Make it so that your love-interest has to go home to freshen up or change clothes to fit in with your date plans. By suggesting an upscale date for example, your love-interest will be forced to go home to freshen up and dress appropriately for your night out on the town.
Whatever you decide to do…make sure to approach this subject with kindness. Especially when it comes to sensitive topics, you don’t want to make your love-interest uncomfortable, which could make things even more awkward between the two of you. Having said that, this is something I definitely recommend you deal with sooner rather than later so that it doesn’t become a habit. Good luck!
