In a post on Reddit, one user explained that her partner had taken her aside to ask her to have her upper lip hair removed with laser hair removal.
Sharing a now-deleted photo of her upper lip, the woman asked if this was the right call for hair removal – but her fellow Redditors were less than impressed with her boyfriend’s request.
Noting that the original poster had nothing more than a “barely noticeable” peach fuzz on her lip, women flooded the comments to reassure her that there was no need for waxing.
One user commented: “It rubbed me the wrong way. You don’t have hair on your upper lip lol the peach down covers a lot of areas of our body and that’s totally normal. Us don’t need to remove all the hair. Your boyfriend is honestly foolish to suggest that you need to do anything about the peach down. “
Another asked, “Why is this bothering him? He has no hair on his body? Does he expect you to shave every inch of yourself to look as hairless as a child? I’m just confused.
A third wrote: “Why in the name of God would you pay a lot of money to remove something that can only be seen in direct sunlight and WTF is wrong with your boyfriend that he finds the hairs so offensive that he wants you to spend money to take away something that literally every person on this earth has? “
One described the request as a “red flag,” warning the woman to keep an eye on her partner.
She wrote: “Today it will be microscopic hairs. Tomorrow? I’m sure there are things about him that lack perfection. Do you ask him to fix those things too or is it a street to one way? Anyway, that looks like a red flag for sure. “
Some users were particularly outraged, encouraging the original poster to dump its partner as soon as possible.
“He asked you to take it off? For what? His own gratuity? Big NO. It’s not like you’re growing a big beard. No to NO NO NO,” commented a furious Redditor.
“Take the boyfriend off instead of the hair. I’m blonde and I have peach down there too and it never bothered me or anyone I dated,” another joked.
Would you remove hair from your upper lip if a partner asked you to? Or do you prefer to delete them?
