9 Gross Things All Girls Do (But Love To Pretend They Don’t)

9 Gross Things All Girls Do (But Love To Pretend They Don’t)

Guys like to perceive girls as cute little princesses. But there are some pretty gross things all girls do, even though we like to pretend we don’t. What do you think these things are? Are you afraid to find out? Trust me, there’s nothing to be afraid of!

You might even find some of them funny. Some can be applied to every woman out there, while others are reserved just for super-gross girls. Unfortunately for guys, they’ll never find out which.

So the only thing I have to tell you is, good luck sleeping tonight after you read this long list of gross things!

1) We pick our outfits based on our shaving schedule

Did you know that we pick outfits based on our shaving schedule? No? Then you might need this explanation. Just to be clear, we are talking about our schedule of shaving our legs.

If it’s blazing hot outside but you see us wearing pants or skinny jeans, then it probably means that we’ve been a bit lazy when it comes to getting rid of our leg hair.

2) Our hairstyles are based on our hair-washing schedule

Do you already know what this gross thing girls do is about? Similar to our choice of clothes, our hairstyles are also based on one of our grooming schedules. This time it’s hair-washing we’re talking about.

Sometimes we’re just too lazy to wash our greasy hair. So we just put it up in a bun or a ponytail. It’s also possible that it’s not about laziness, but about our plans. If we need our hair to look beautiful and just washed on Friday, then washing it on Thursday doesn’t make sense at all.

3) We smell our clothes to see if we can wear them

Now, this is a common scenario with girls. We’re getting ready but can’t choose what to wear out of the items piled up on our chair.

And we also aren’t really sure which shirt is waiting to get washed and which is perfectly clean. So what we do to figure that out is smell them one by one until we find one that looks and smells nice.

4) We even smell ourselves

And sometimes when we’re out with our friends, we even smell ourselves if we aren’t sure about it. It usually happens after we’ve had to hurry somewhere when it’s hot outside.

Or when we have to meet with a person we really like so we don’t want to risk being “smelly.”

5) We “forget” to clean the bathtub full of our hair

Everybody knows this. Our hair is everywhere. On your shirt. In your car. Even stuck between your glasses if you’ve hugged us recently.

And because we’re talking about hair, I have to mention one gross thing girls do. And it’s leaving tons of hair in the tub or shower after we’re done washing ourselves. Sometimes it even clogs the drain! But it’s not our problem, right?

6) We pop pimples

Let me tell you something. There’s no better feeling than washing your face and then getting ready to pop some spots.

And a few moments later, you successfully make your face look worse than it did before. BUT you also briefly experience high levels of euphoria while studying every sample you’ve taken from your pimples.

7) We sometimes skip taking a shower

Sometimes we get home after a very tough day feeling like we can barely walk to our bed. And when we finally arrive in our room, we just have enough strength to take off our clothes and collapse on the bed.

Then we remember that we haven’t taken a shower. And you think we get up to do it? Well, one gross thing girls do is that we ignore the need and postpone it for tomorrow. And sometimes if we spend two days in a row without leaving the house, we also skip showering. Who cares? No one can smell us.

8) We take the cleanest dirty piece of clothing out of the basket

Here’s something that happens quite often. We plan to go out and for the first time in forever, we even know what we’re gonna wear. Isn’t it a beautiful day?

But then, just an hour before we’re supposed to meet up with our friends, we realize that we can’t find that dress. We search around the house for it, only to remember that it’s in the laundry basket, along with the rest of the dirty clothes. So we take it out, smell it and if it seems good enough, we wear it.

9) We leave our makeup on for too long

And the last secret gross thing girls do is that we leave our makeup on for too long. Sometimes we even go to sleep without taking it off. It’s such a demanding activity, especially after a night out.

So we often leave it for the next morning. But when we wake up, the thing we see in the mirror barely resembles us! Black mascara and red lipstick smudges all over our face, and eyeshadow smeared to the point where we look like a human panda. It’s a horror scene.

Wrapping up…

You see, it’s not that bad, right? Or did you maybe really not expect some of these things? Whatever the case is, I’m sure you learned something new. And now you even have some new topics to discuss with your girl. Heck, perhaps she’ll share even more gross things girls often do.

Who knows, maybe you’ll even find a new nickname for her!
