If you are a girl, society has always expected from you to behave according to settled norms but girls are not porcelain dolls. They might be better mannered than boys are, but that's all down to societal conditioning. The reality is that girls are just as capable of being gross as boys are. Seriously, just ask a girl and she'll tell you the same thing! Or maybe she won't. Societal conditioning goes deep.
That's right, girls are just as capable of being disgusting and gross as boys are. Sure, they may have been shamed by society more forcefully for doing these things than boys, but trust us. It's still all a part of their genetic code.
Here are the top 7 secretly gross things girls do and if you show this to a girl and she says she cannot relate, she's lying! Hey, at least you're on to her, right? The more confident a girl is in your company, the more readily she'll admit this stuff to you.
A nice, well-mannered girl would, of course, never pick her nose in public. But there's nothing like coming home after a long day and digging for gold. It may be a childlike habit, but it's just so satisfying you never outgrow it.
Every mother will have counseled her daughter to never pick their noses in public, and girls generally don't do it. The social cost would be just too much! But in the privacy of their own bedrooms, there's nothing to stop them from this.
Every girl really enjoys digging out ingrown hair. Some often have whole sessions with the tweezers where you get every single one. Again, this is a pretty satisfying thing to do, especially because of the way the skin looks afterwards.
It doesn't matter where the ingrown hair is located. They'll pluck out the nipple hair and the ones around their belly button. But ingrown hairs around the face are the real catch. There's nothing more satisfying than going at it with the tweezers on your face.
Squeezing out a huge blackhead gives us a weird kind of satisfaction. It's kind of like having a mission to force out the foreign object that's hurting your looks and, once you have managed to complete this mission, you become your own personal hero.
This, of course, doesn't end here though! Oh no, just popping out the bugger is not enough. Girls have to carefully inspect it afterwards and try to determine its size, color, shape. The jury is still out on why it's so fascinating to do this.
Whenever someone mentions a bad smell, you automatically assume it's you,because remembering deodorant is hard. At least knowing is half the battle, even if it does turn out you're the smelly kid. It's a talent to sniff yourself unobserved, let me tell you that.
Furthermore, during periods, girls have the ability to twist their selves into the most amazing positions just so they could smell their crotch to confirm that the pad doesn't give them out and that nobody can really pick up that scent.
This isn't really gross, but shaving sucks, and you always end up missing a weird patch on your ankle anyway. So on days when you don't want to bother, you wear clothes that expertly hide the inch-long strands. No one is any the wiser.
Although athlete's foot is more common in guys, those yellowish toe nails and red patches can affect us girls too. Yeah, we find that pretty gross, but it can happen to the best of us, when we haven't been exercising the right amount of caution during cleanup.
Girls are embarrassed to talk about it and it isn't exactly an ideal topic to discuss over a Sunday brunch so they prefer to keep quiet about it, paint their nails for quick cover-up and keep the ointment hidden deep inside the bottom drawer.
Letting loose during early morning showers is too convenient not to do. It all goes down the drain anyway, so what's the big deal? Don't give us those judgmental stares; everyone does it! And it saves so much time in the morning.
This may have opened the eyes of a few of you who think girls smell like rainbows and unicorns all the time. Nope, we fart too, and those farts are just as smelly and gross as any guy's! It's great to let it loose for some time!
In the US, the average spent on an engagement ring is $6,351 but how do these figures compare with our favorite celebrities? The answer: they don't. As the diamonds increase in size, obviously the price tag appreciates handsomely. Well, we've compiled a list of some of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings.
This list would be nothing without Kim Kardashian's rock from Kanye, which clocked in at around a cool $4 million when he presented it to her at his stadium proposal in October 2013. Unfortunately, though, the 15-carat sparkler was among the jewelry stolen during Kim's infamous Paris robbery in 2016.
Jennifer Lopez's husband Alex Rodriguez popped the question to the singer, and he really had to step it up to outshine her previous engagement rings—and wow, did he deliver. The baseball star proposed with a reported 15-20 carat emerald cut stunner set on a platinum band that was estimated at $5 million. It's getting harder and harder not to be fooled by the rocks she's got...
It should come as no surprise that Beyonce herself totes one of the world's highest-valued diamonds. Weighing in at 24 carats, Jay reportedly paid around $5 million (now worth $6,047,013) for Bey's flashy emerald-cut ring back in 2008.
Anna Kournikova's relationship Latin music artist Enrique Iglesias since the early '00s has been one of the most lowkey celebrity relationships to date. That is with the exception of her $5,400,000 engagement ring that made headlines in 2004. Now, worth a whopping $7,443,596, the giant yellow stunner was spotted on Kournikova even during her tennis matches. (Pssst! It's rumored she got two rings from Iglesias. Prior to this, she sported an equally giant pink pear-shaped ring.)
Clocking in as the most expensive celebrity engagement ring, Mariah Carey's 35-carat bling from ex-fiancé James Packer reportedly cost a cool $10 million. And the "Obsessed" singer seemed to be a bit, well, obsessed with the jewel. She continued to wear the ring over a year post-breakup, and didn't part ways with the bauble until May 2018, selling it to a Los Angeles jeweler for $2.1 million.
