Do You Have Any Dear Friends Who Smell Bad?

I mean really reek.

How do you go about telling them?

Do you feel it's your duty to tell them?

This obviously should be a burning issue for the forum.

although we just teased him about it because he knew

I know people who smell stanky because of too much soap(did they use the whole bar?) or cologne. I can smell these people from like 20 feet away.

Bad hygiene is one thing. Self induced crap smelling is another.

In boot camp, walked past a guy's locker and almost passed out from the stench. Turned out he didn't know how to use the washer and dryer, so he never washed his clothes. And this was the 5th week of boot. After PT, he'd take off his outfit, refold them, and put them in the locker.

The drill instructor actually had to take him into the laundry room with all his clothes and show him how to use a washing machine. Things were much better after that.



In HS, there was this girl that had a pecular smell. Not stinky, or BO, or anything like perfume. I think it had something to do with her medication. But that smell made me so damn horny! I've smelled it on a few people since then. Hard to explain to the wife why I suddenly got horned up after walking past some guy in the hall at work.

The worst thing about the mildew smell is that (at least for me) you can never get it out.

If he/she is your real friend you shouldnt have a problem telling them. It is bettering coming from you than from an anonymous stranger

Yeah, I'd imagine your wife would be confused.

This reminds me of a story my Biology teacher told the class when I was in HS. He claimed to have dated a girl who worked in a movie theater and would pick her up every night after her shift and drive up to the local make-out spot for a petting session. To this day, he claimed that he found the smell of popcorn to be "arousing" .

Had one friend in HS, would have to pick him up everyday. He always had a really pungent curry smell when he walked out of his house, but it would mostly go away by the time we reached school. Occasionally we would hang out at his place, and we too would smell for a little bit after we left.

This reminds me of college. There were always a lot of Indians in the computer lab and it stank to high hell. I know that spices in food make you smell differently, but the smell was atrocious and made it difficult to get anything done.
