Dh's chewing grosses me out!

He's across the room and I can hear him chewing his food. Not just crunching but like he's got a sloshy mess of goop in his mouth. He always chews this way and I don't like it, it grosses me out!
Sorry more of a vent, but it's nasty!

  • I understand. My husband has a nasty habit related to your husbands, but I'm not going to get into it. Try to ignore it.

  • ew. I can't stand hearing people eat or seeing people eat who don't keep their mouth shut. Sorry but if a guy did that he wouldn't have become my hubby!

  • Oh his mouth is closed but I can hear it!!!
    And either love is blind and get's is sight after a while of he just started doing this a few years ago. He never did this when we were dating or first married, unless I had instead of love goggles love ear plugs!

  • Every time I hear someone say that a noise bothers them, it reminds me that doctors and psychologists say that an exaggerated response to a sound shows your own stress. For me, it is 100% true. When I am already stressed or pissy, hearing sounds like that REALLY bother me a lot more than if I'm relaxed and happy.

  • I know how you feel. My dad smacks his food and talks with food in his mouth. Very gross!!!

  • Mom-2-3-Girlz I agree, I was annoyed a but with him but his chewing has really become an issue in the last few years. I try to not sit close to him when he's eating so I can't hear it much and welcome the chatter at the table to distract me.
