- The Lesser of Two Evils
Neither is worse than the other.
Most of my family doesn't use deodorant, due to allergies or it's not anything they used growing -up and, since moving to Canada, they refuse to conform. Doesn't make roadtrips (even to the grocery store) any more bearable. My nose hairs still shrivel. My tummy still dry heaves. I've just gotten better at hiding it.
I've dated a number of men. Some of which bathed in aftershave and cologne or smoked, and some who went natural. I prefer the latter. But not if it's gym-locker or sweaty-feet smell.
I'll admit to having bad breath. But since becoming aware of it, I stay on top of the issue. A big help was getting my cavities filled and learning how to floss properly. I also carry mints. At first, I thought it might be embarrassing popping mints, but I've discovered the effort is very appreciated - people prefer fresh to rancid. Who would've thunk?
