Keeping secrets isn’t easy, but these Redditors have been holding in some particularly dark ones for quite a while. When asked, people around the internet started revealing the darkest secrets they knew about other people that those people don’t know they know.

She Committed A Horrible Act

From Redditor u/scuby22:

When I was a Teaching Assistant, my professor told me (over a few too many glasses of wine) that when she was 16, and learning to drive, she hit and [slayed] a homeless man. The local cops showed up at the scene, and she confessed she hit him. After some internal discussions, the cops told her to go home and never speak of it. They said he was a “homeless drunk that probably wandered into the road and wouldn’t be missed.” She’s been having nightmares over that day for years since.

What do you think?

His Grandfather Harmed A Mean Kid

From a deleted Reddit user:

My grandfather went out and [jabbed] my cousin’s elementary school bully’s dad to [expiration]. My cousin’s [enemy] [picked on] him every day for years, and his parents knew and justified it by saying it was a good way for their boy to assert himself and that my cousin needed to grow some balls. Upon my grandfather finding out, especially when he learned they were white, he grabbed the biggest kitchen knife in the house and left. He came back several hours later with a bloody T-shirt and the knife missing. The next morning on the news, there was a story about a [slain] man found in an alleyway [pierced] multiple times. That man was the [jerk’s] dad. My cousin was never [messed with] again. My grandfather was never caught.

Her Entire Childhood Was A Lie

From Redditor u/toccoto:

Since most are about [relations] (I do have [intimate] ones but meh, they’ve all basically been stated), here’s something different:

I knew a girl I was interested in dating that fabricated her entire childhood. Literally, from birth to about 11 years old was a complete lie. She claimed she was born outside of the country. She had pictures of her in another country (Ireland, completely faked), she faked an accent. She would stage fake phone calls with her grandparents.

She wasn’t aware that her parents were friends with a mutual friend of mine. I had met them before, and they mentioned her. They specifically mentioned her being baptized in a church in the area when she was born. So hearing that, I went to research. Yup…. the entire thing was fabricated.

I never did anything out of fear of what it would do to her.

We later had [relations], completely protected.

She told my friends that I didn’t use protection, took her by force, and she had to abort my child.

Looking back, I should have seen that coming.

His Dad May Have Been A Spy

From Redditor u/reallynotcool:

When I was about eight or nine (this was in the late ’80s), I was wanting to get back my Ghostbusters action figures that my dad had hidden in his closet as a punishment for attempting to [cover] my sleeping brother in the sandbox at school. I was digging around when I thought I saw them on the top shelf (which made sense) and climbed on the dresser and reached up for it and pulled it down. A shoebox filled with cash, about a dozen passports, maps, an instamatic camera, a pistol, and a silencer, and several photos of people spilled out over the floor. I wasn’t thinking much, I hurriedly packed it all back in and placed it back in its spot.

My dad obviously had to have noticed it was disturbed, but didn’t say anything, and I was too frightened about getting my butt whooped for attempting to take back the toys and being in there.

Years and years later, my dad [passed] of bronchial cancer and it wasn’t until we were making [passing] arrangements when I found out he was a “state department liaison” and that we wouldn’t need to pay for the funeral and the government would help out for expenses until we were 18. Apparently my mother thought he was a translator, but I’m not so sure. Deep dark secret? Yes, that my dad took with him to the grave.

One Girl Faked Her Entire Pregnancy

From Redditor u/extrazipper:

Last year, this girl I knew from high school got pregnant. She was single, but she uploaded ultrasound photos and even had professional maternity pictures done. The baby would have been born in July, but then suddenly, she cut contact with people and started posting things implying that the baby had [passed] somehow.

The truth: she faked the whole pregnancy to try to get the “father” to be with her. She was wearing a fake belly the whole time. This also isn’t the first time she’s done it, but as far as everybody else knows, she just lost the baby somehow.

He Found Out About His Dad’s Enemies

From Redditor u/Very_High_Templar:

The names of the three people my dad [slayed] when he was younger.

The Married Secretary Was Having An Affair

From Redditor u/sarahbear121:

The receptionist at my work is screwing my boss. She doesn’t do anything required for her job and essentially has a free ride.

The other day while aimlessly wandering Facebook, I came across her husband’s profile (through a friend of a friend). She has never come to work with a ring on her finger. She has only alluded that she has a casual boyfriend. She took three weeks of vacation last summer and said she was going to Hawaii with her mom. Turns out that was when she got married and had her honeymoon.

He Has A Secret Son

From Redditor u/ballsd33p:

My wife doesn’t know I have a 17-year-old son.

Unknowingly got a co-worker preggo right before I left for college. I went back to my hometown for a [passing service] just last fall, and I ran into her. She asked if I would take a paternity test, you know, “for science”. That’s one test I wish I’d failed.

Not quite sure how to tell my wife. We’ve been together for 12 years so I wasn’t cheating.

He knows about me now. He or his mom wasn’t sure who his dad was. No idea. Saw his Facebook the day after I got the test back, and it said something about finding his dad. F*ck. Debating whether or not to go to his HS graduation. So many emotions….

You guys are making me tear up at work. I’ve been agonizing over something else since I found out I was the father. The mom is single, sh**ty job at Supercuts, not much money in the bank, and still lives at home with her parents. No doubt unable to continue her education since getting pregnant as a college freshman. Should I try to make it right by paying for her to go back to school?

After all, she did have to drop out to raise my son and altered the course of her financial future. I can’t imagine being a single working parent trying to raise a kid by myself.

Their Friend Passed Out During A Bathroom Break

From Redditor u/wakestrap:

A friend of my roommate at the time was this cute girl we’ll call Mel. Mel and my roomie (female) were heading out on a Thursday to have some drinks with friends with the intention of returning to our apartment at the end of the night to [sleep]. Mel had a bit of a crush on me and before she left, she told me she was sleeping in my bed that night and I didn’t have a say in the matter. Fine by me, I thought, I was single and she was cute.

Fast forward to 3 am. I wake up to my roomie asking for help getting Mel upstairs – our apartment was on the second floor. So I get out of bed, look over the railing and see this girl absolutely out-f*cking-cold at the bottom of the stairs. Well, looks like I’m not getting any tonight, I then carry this girl upstairs to the living room where she gets tucked into the couch, and I head back to bed.

I awake the next morning and head to the kitchen for breakfast before work. As soon as I walked into the kitchen, the smell hit me. I immediately started looking around, it didn’t take long to find the source. There, in the middle of the kitchen, is one of the kitchen chairs, and on the floor in front of it is a cupcake tray. Sitting on top of the tray is a steaming nightmarish pile of beer-and-shooter-induced fecal slurry that would have made a grizzly bear proud. I sh*t you not, it was one of the biggest single piles I’ve ever seen, and the kicker was that it belonged to a lady. A dainty, petite lady who, at some point in the night, wandered into the kitchen and had the wherewithal to put a cupcake tray on the floor before pulling out a chair to brace herself with (there was some sh*t on the chair, too) so she could comfortably sh*t on the tray.

That’s when I just walked away. I didn’t see much of her after that, but my roomie who worked with her said it’s obvious that she has no clue she did it. She was blackout drunk, so I’m not surprised. I guess the couple people that did know started calling her Cupcake, which she thinks is a cute nickname.

He Admitted He Wasn’t The Father

From Redditor u/randompostingguy:

I have two sisters. Mom [passed] more than 20 years ago. A few years back, my father was going in for a high-risk surgery. The night before he went in, he told my oldest sister that he wasn’t really her dad. It turns out that before they got married my mom and dad broke up briefly, and my mom hooked up with some guy, getting pregnant in the process. She told my father and the two ended up eloping. For whatever reason, they never told my sister, and my father promised to keep the secret before my mom passed. After telling my sister, my father asked her to not tell anyone else.

She’s talked to her husband, me, and my second sister about it. My dad has no idea we know.

He also has no idea how much I respect him for raising another man’s child and always loving her like the daughter she was.

He Lived Off His Daddy’s Money

From Redditor u/metwork:

I know a guy from college who drove an M3, wore expensive sh*t, and always bought drinks and paid for sh*t. Told everyone he made his money off calls/puts on E-Trade, and “hustled” on the side. I think he watched Boiler Room or read Wolf of Wall Street one too many times and thought he could just pretend he was some market wizard (who was a GENERAL BUSINESS MAJOR, lol.)

I worked with a friend of his dad, who told me that Daddy paid for EVERYTHING via card, cash handouts, paid his bills every month, and that this kid didn’t do sh*t.

At least I got a few free drinks.
