So a while ago I was walking with my boyfriend back to my place after visiting mum so she could meet him properly. (They'd met before but briefly)
It was a stinking hot day, 34 degrees Celsius.
My deodorant had failed within five minutes of walking and I'd neglected to bring any with me so by the end of the forty minute walk I stunk like a pile of dirty laundry. It was terrible.
I commented on this, laughingly apologising to my boyfriend that he's going to be subjected to my BO for the entirety of the walk.
He shrugged and said he was okay with that. I smell good.
I have been been spoken to before about my body odour, I have a bit of a problem in that no deoderant seems to ever work. I've been told I smell horrid on hot days. I know I don't smell great (though admittedly I don't mind my own smell) so why would he think I smell good?
I've spoken to his sister a couple times and she's asked me how I can stand kissing him when he doesn't brush his teeth. I have the same bad habit so it doesn't really affect me. She's also asked how I can stand spending more than five seconds in his room, what with the mess and the smell. My response to that was what smell?
Do you reckon that if you like someone you generally like their smell too?

Okay, I voted on option A, but in reality, it's a definite yes. I don't know why that is, but if I like someone, I also like their smell and don't mind their bad hygiene habits - whether they have B. O. at the time or they've just showered and put perfume on, if their breath smells or if they've just done their teeth and rinsed, if they've got a dirty room or if it's always tidy and Febreezed.1

I think it's just a matter of you both seeming to be pretty foul people so you just... click. I don't think it's 'cause you like one another.
When someone I have feelings for smells bad, I avoid them. I try not to be near them. I still like them, but their scent makes me gag. Won't have any part of it.1
