My boyfriend really has a smelly armpit and I can’t tell him that directly. I don’t want him to get upset. I love him but I don’t have the courage to tell him that. Some of my friends told me jokingly that love is indeed blind. When we were out at the mall one time, a group of young Shenyang women even noticed it. I don’t want him to become a talk of town but telling him right to his face that his armpit is really stinky made me want to run away. Should I tell him in a joke way so that it won’t appear insulting or should I tell him seriously? But how? How should I tell him he has a smelly armpit without making him feel insulted?

I think it's worth telling him because it's something that he can change.

On the other hand, if it was something regarding his appearance that he couldn't change, then probably not.

But he only needs to wash! I'd tell him.

I definitely think that it is important to tell him. I would start with subtle hints but if he doesn’t take the message then I would tell him directly in the most loving and tactful way possible. It may hurt his feelings but in the end he may appreciate your honestly more than just being nice to him.

Yes. He might get offended or embarrassed, but it's for his own good... And yours too. It's normal to have a smelly armpit, it's part of our body's reaction, but of course being neat, clean and fragrant make us look better and feel better. And more attractive.

How you could tell him is maybe say it in a not so serious way. Joke your way to it. Maybe like, "I think it's getting a little hot, our armpits feel a little slippery. It's getting way too much moisture, don't you think?" or something.

Just good luck!

You should hint at it then buy him some gifts and include a roll on and see what he does with it. If he uses it then fine but if he doesn't use it, then tell him in the best way you know that won't hurt his feelings. That way, he will pay more attention to it when he is taking his bath

Do you have an update regarding this @problemgf26 - does your boyfriend still continue to have a smelly armpit?  ;D

Yes, but starting with hints, then if it doesnt work, you should try to talk, but smoothly ofc

I would buy him some of that real good antiperspirant/deodorant and tell him you really like the way it smells and see if he takes the hint.

I’ve learned that with men, you need to be upfront and honest. If he cares enough about you, he won’t be bothered by you telling him that he needs to wear deodorant. As a man, it’s his job to keep himself groomed for you. He wouldn’t like for you to smell bad so he shouldn’t smell bad for you. Just tell him.

Yes! You will only help him in the long run by being honest with him.

It's best to be honest with him! You should have honest conversation with and talk about problems!

I think it's worth telling him, but in a straight and gentle manner. Otherwise, you will resent him smelling, and he can't change unless he knows what's occurring.

There are two options. Either you take this smell or not. But even if you continue to be silent, relationships will not improve. Disgust will grow.

If you have a strong relationship you should tell him. If you carry on the adventure together that kind of trust and openness will be essential
