Even before you go on that first date with a future partner, chances are you’ve already built up – if not a ‘file’ – then a fair amount of information.
If you met via a dating site / app, you’ll have read about how they ” live life to the fullest “, and like long walks on the beach among other nuggets of information.
And if you met via other means, there’s likely been a volley of texts which gives you an idea of what that person is like .
Fast forward a few years, a few milestones and a few arguments, and you probably feel as if you know them intimately.
But can you ever truly ‘know someone’ – especially if people are apt to change their minds?
It turns out, according to Whisper , that even the person you love the most may not quite who you think they are.
It could be something trivial, like the frequency with which they pass wind – or, as these confessions show, it can be something altogether more heartbreaking.
