Would you tell your DH/SO if he had bad breath?

I told mine, and he got so mad at me! I'm just wondering if I shouldn't tell him anymore or tell him...What would you do?

  • Yes you should tell him, but make sure he is allowed to tell you if your breath stinks or he doesn't care for something you cooked or if an outfit make you look funky. Make sure he understands that you don't want his breath stinking around you or anyone else for that matter....you are just watching out for him.....hehe. And in return he will get alot more smooches from you *muah*

  • I tell mine and he tells me if mine stinks. I would rather be told then walking around with bad breath, he feels the same way.

  • I told mine outright..."When's the last time you brushed your teeth?" "I can smell your breath" "Please brush your teeth before you kiss me"
    But I also mellow it out by saying "If I had bad breath, I would want you to tell me" and "Don't be embarrassed, everyone has bad breath at one time or another"

  • Yes I do. I would rather someone tell me I have bad breath so I don't go around grossing people out. I am sure he would too.

    It seems that maybe your guy is just sensitive and doesn't take criticism well. Maybe next time just offer him a piece of gum.
