Dear MISSter Simms,
I’m a young professional woman who is currently dating a very nice, very kind, and very generous guy. But…I’m not in love with him. In fact, I actually kind of find him repulsive! He has really bad B.O., which I didn’t mind when we were first dating because I didn’t see him very often. But now we spend time with each other a few nights a week, and each time I get a whiff of his scent it makes my hair stand on end. Despite his horrible smell, he’s a totally wonderful guy. But I can’t help but think that maybe I should give him to another woman who would appreciate his odor. What should I do?
My Poor Nose
Man, a lil B.O. never hurt nobody. In fact, I’d wager that he probably smells so bad because he’s hard at work doing some kinda job. So, you have a hard working, employed, very kind, very generous, and very sweet guy on your hands. You could break up with him over his stench…OR you could try option number 2: gift him a whole rack of organic shampoos, soaps, conditioners, colognes, and whatever else makes people smell good.
Sure, it’s not subtle. But uh…maybe he’ll just think you’re being kind and not trying to give him a sign that his funk is strangling you. And even if he does get the hint, he’ll be cool with it because kind, sweet, generous people are down to please. You could even turn it into an intimate moment, with you two in the shower washing each other’s stanky butts!
If that fails, however, then by all means spare your nostrils and head for the hills.
