To Refresh is Refreshing to your Partner
He had a Cleaning Fetish
I used to work with this gentleman that wouldn’t shake your hand till he washed his hand. And know matter where he went or what he did he always carried toiletries with him. I always just assumed he had a cleaning fetish and didn’t give it another thought. I think maybe he used this being clean and not smelling a tad to far for good common sense. But then on the other hand many people could use more time in the shower everyday.
Is your Partner Wearing a Gas Mask?
My lovely wife worked with a lady that smelled so bad that they isolated her in one room all by herself, because being up-close and personal with her would have required a gas mask. My wife told me of one incident when they were rewiring the telephone system in her place of employment. Eventually and not previously warned the telephone man entered her office and immediately started gagging and had to leave the room. The serviceperson refused to finish her office till she vacated it and the janitorial service refreshed the room.
Soap is Refreshing
The lady in question was not allowed to return till the telephone guy was finished. I think maybe she had a washing issue? Which is the point I’m trying to make. This lady lived alone and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand why? Maybe that’s the way she was raised or maybe her smeller didn’t work and she couldn’t detect the problem she had.
Good Hygiene always Helps and never Hurts
Granted most people don’t fall in this category, but many people are skirting the edges. Cleaning oneself and maintaining good hygiene is a major necessity to maintaining a good physical presentation to your loving companion. And I’m talking about all the cracks and crevices in the human body. You know those places that haven’t seen the light of day for many moons.
Even thought people don’t have x ray vision they do have smell vision and stinking will drive people away from you before they have a chance to really get to know the real you. And yes love over looks many short falls in their mate but take it from one who really knows the true meaning of true love. Your mate will always appreciate your attention to smelling good, so don’t slack off and become less loveable because you failed to dust off the dew at the end of the day.
