Stupid people are all around us. They're in our offices, they're at our family gatherings, and if you're not paying close enough attention, they can end up in our beds. That's what happened to these 18 people on reddit who shared the exact moment they realized they were dating an idiot.

1. Ineedyoursway's gf apparently has no idea where chocolate milk comes from.

She was out for a run one day and when she came back she said an animal charged at her, so she cut her run short. I asked her what it looked like, and she said, "like a cow, but brown." It was a cow.

2. SlytherEEn was dating someone as dumb as a plant.

When he told me, quite seriously, about how people with enough willpower can survive by photosynthesis.

3. Glitter-recession's bf had some trouble with the l-word.

He called lingerie "linguine." As in the pasta.

4. technocassandra dated a guy who kept his gun way too clean.

He shot himself in the leg twice while cleaning it. The same gun. 2 weeks apart. 9 mm. Shot himself in the calf the first time, then took out his kneecap the second time, same leg. Took months of surgeries to fix it.

5. zeldawarriorprincess 's boyfriend didn't have a heart.

He was getting his license renewed and they asked him if he wanted to be an organ donor. He said no. When I asked why he told me it was because he didn't want the government to come knocking for any of his organs when he still needed them. He really thought that becoming an organ donor meant that, at any time, his organs could be taken.

6. johntetherbon90 knew exactly when things weren't looking up.

Driving down the road and the moon is visible during the day...

Her: how is the moon out at the same time as the sun?

Me: sometimes that happens, it's not that uncommon.

Her: no they are the same thing so how can we see both at the same time?!

Me: ...The sun and the moon are 2 different things, are you serious?

Her: yea, not everyone went to college like you schoolboy.

Me: you learn this in like 2nd grade...

She was in her early 30s...

7. TheFascination dated a dude who couldn't even learn how to learn.

I asked him about the class he was taking at community college.

Him: It's going ok! Better than last year. I failed it twice.

Me: Must be a hard class! What's it about?

Him: Learning strategies.

He failed a class about how to learn. Twice.

8. averagesizedhatlogan was with a girl too dumb to poison with Kool-Aid.

Making Kool-Aid: "How much sugar does it need?" "It says on the package." "Just tell me." "One cup." "Okay... there's only a 1/3 cup here. Where is the whole cup?" "I don't know, just use the 1/3 cup." "Well, how many scoops do I do, then?" "It's one THIRD of a cup..." "I don't know fractions, just tell me." "I'm not... going to tell you. Figure it out. It's one THIRD of a cup. How many do you think it would be?" "I don't know, averagesizedhatlogan, just tell me!" ".....Three."

The girl was 20 years old at the time. I'll never forget that.

9. DrCool2016 found out the horseman wasn't the only one without a head.

My girlfriend at the time genuinely believed that it was the headless horseman that ran though Lexington and Concord shouting "The British are coming, the British are coming!"

Said her dad told her the giant wind farm fans in central California were to cool things down and she believed him.

Me: when you were a kid?

Her: no, last year.

11. CharlieSabina's dude didn't give a shit.

He decided that he didn't want to poop while staying with me in student halls, so he didn't poop for ten days and seriously messed up his digestive system

16. Migz968 was in public when he realized a lightbulb wasn't thing only thing that was a little dull.

She threw a butter knife at a light bulb in a crowded restaurant because she didn't like that it was flickering

17. PerilousAll ​dated the dangerous kind of dumb.

He actually believed that if you had money, it was because god thought you were a good person, and only bad people were poor. The truly ironic part of this was that he couldn't get enough work to make a living, and had to ask his wealthy father for handouts all the time.

18. And finally XPaladoshiss, figured out how dumb his girl was right off the bat.

I asked her out and she said yes.
