How closely do you look at your partner when you see them? Do you notice a new hair cut, a brighter smile, a blemish on their skin…that big ol’ hickey on their neck? Whoa, back up…hickey??? What the………. Your partner comes home and you notice a hickey on them…you didn’t put it there. What’s the next step? Do you confront them? Toss them and their hickey out the door? Buy the excuse that a “bug” bit them? Ignore it? If Hubby turned up with one…well, he’d be a Hubby in the past tense of the word. I know how their made and it isn’t by a “bug”…though I did know someone that tried that excuse LOL. If I came home with one, I’d expect Hubby would notice and I’d probably be a wife in the past tense. I know how to give them...I don't do it anymore...and I've gotten some in my young and wild years. What would you do? If you got one, would you try to hide it from your partner or let the fur fly when they saw it? Do you know how to do them and have you ever? Have you ever gotten one? Now I know most will say they wouldn’t cheat on their partner, so this is just for fun… [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

I think I grew up in the age of vampirism...lol I remember as a teen, we all had them. I also remember trying different foundations to try to cover them up so our parents wouldnt see them. I can even remember a few teachers coming to school with them and giggling away at it. But, if my hubby came home with one, I would play dumb and say whats that? If I didnt like the answer, he would be gone! But I never have to worry, cause like you said, my hubby would never cheat. I am very sure of that!

They can also be made by twisting a piece of skin using your thumb and first finger. Hubs and I love embarrassing each other, but we've gotten wise to each other's tricks. He came up with that one, the dirty dog. The daughter, who has a wicked sense of humor, did it to me one night while I was asleep. I woke up when it hurt, but by then it was done. (Her father was in on it.) He ripped on me for a few days, pretending not to believe me. I have an evil family. I really do.

well even in fun, if my hubby came home with one and I didnt give it to him...he would be right back out the door with his luggage that is for sure... and I still get them from hubby, and I give them once in a while, but not as often as I get them... happy mylotting!

Ok, anyone with half a brain knows the difference between a hickey and a bug bite. My mother did not raise a fool! Nor was she a fool when I tried the "I ran into a lamp post with my neck" excuse as a teen. If he had one I would say, "For your own pleasure, I hope you got more, but for your chance of staying alive, you better not have!"

If my husband came home with one there would have to be a reasonable explanation, because in all honesty he'd never cheat. I would bet the lives of my children that he'd never cheat, and if he did cheat he would admit it, there'd be no lying or hiding it. That's just who he is. But it's funny you should bring this up. Last night while showering I noticed a mark on my chest area that looked like a hickey, but I knew it couldn't have been. Nobody has touched me in weeks, not even my husband. We've both been sick with stomach flus, and since then we quit smoking and have been fighting due to irritability. So I saw this on my chest and freaked out wondering what he'd think when he saw it. Luckily he did not see it because I don't know if he'd accept the excuse that I don't know where it came from!

my hickey - The yucky hickey on my neck
If I was with someone and they came home with a hickey on their neck I would flip out. I do remember when my son was a baby he used to bite me and suck on my skin all the time and leave hickey marks. One time my mother didnt believe me that it was my son. I have a hickey on my neck right now from a guy friend. I hate hickeys they are so trashy looking.

I would kick his butt to the curb especially if he attempted to say that it was just a bug bite. I mean serious does a guy think we're that stupid? I have a scar on my neck and I don't know how many times people think it is a hickey, but that's different LOL.

hey I am not stupid, I know a hickey when I see one especially if you mention all the sprucing up, and I would not tolerate it. He as you say would be out the door, I don't tolerate cheating, he either wants me or he doesn't and that is the name of that game.

Hello there twoey68! : ) Well first of all, yes......I used to get them. second of all, yes.........I used to give them. Third of all, it has been years since I had one and being that I am single, it'll probably be that way forever. However, I am 40 years old and a little to old to getting red spots on my neck,lol! If I were married or had a man and he came to me with a hickey on his neck I don't know if I would do the famous " what goes around, comes back around" thingie or just simply leave his disrespecting behind. But knowing me, I would leave him.

Hi twoey, at one time in my teens I saw no problem with them, like all teens probably but for one even though I am single I now think they are horrible and would never give one to my partner as he wouldn't me..littleowl

i have been fortunate--and naughty--enough to have my hubby go home for MY hickey and not anybody else's...it's my students whom i encounter a lot of hickeys...honestly! kids! the 'bug bite' is, indeed, a textbook-excuse, and i know the guilty look enough not to believe, and they know me enough not to push the excuse. so i had to help them get rid of the hickey, because not all teachers would understand 'why' they went through what they did the previous night. it helps, because they are more open to me andn could monitor them more closely. ^_^V

I don't know what I would do, get out the bug spray and the lice shampoo and make him pay for that lie. I bet I could make the debugging procedure pretty unpleasant After that who knows

An insect bite is quite different with a hickey. I used to put hickey to my ex-bfs on their chest but not on their necks. Thats shameful if its on his neck. If ever I see a hickey on my bf'f neck that it wasn't me who have done that, it means one thing... cheating then next is separation. I had hickey once, my previous bf put hickeys on the sides of my face so I have two hickeys. That was Valentines two years ago.

I don't believe I've ever seen a hickey that looked like a bug bite or from some other means. A hickey is a hickey and, no matter how it got there, the possessor of the hickey WAS with someone else! I wouldn't even believe a story that some "gal" just came up to them and gave them the hickey as a joke! You can't tell me a man couldn't get away from a marauding hickey-giver! And a bug??? Show me the bite itself and I MIGHT believe it but, if there was no puncture mark, there was no bug, unless he's calling "HER" a bug! Nah, I'd have one MAJOR issue with my significant other if he came home with a hickey! That's cheating. Also, something I've learned about life is that "once a cheater, always a cheater". You can't trust anyone who has cheated on you and, once trust is gone, the relationship changes forever. I've never believed in hickey-giving. The only reason I can see someone giving anyone else a hickey is to "mark" them as theirs. That shows a lack of trust or, if you are the receiver, all it shows is that you had a rather passionate encounter with someone who was into sucking. Kissing is one thing but sucking is just plain weird, in my opinion, at least on the neck!

I think almost all couples have advantages and disadvantages, and do things that we don't like, but how good if we try to accept them, with all the excess that they have. :)

The chances of me getting a hickey these days are next to zero but hypothetically speaking let's say I had one I would find it very difficult to lie to him so I would focus on covering it up somehow. It would be easier at the moment because due to his snoring we have separate bedrooms, so until his doctor fixes the snoring situation I would be somewhat safer. I would wear high collars and make up or something and hopefully he wouldn't see it. Having said that though I would never let anyone give me a hickey if I could help it! If my husband was the one to come home with a hickey it would require one heck of an explanation to stop me from throwing him out the door!

i do know how you get them & how to give them but's it's been a loooooooooooong time since i did either.lol. if i had a partrner & he came home w/one he'd be packing his "stuff". bug bite, that would really tick me off for him to think i was stupid enough to believe that.

I think we've all had our share of hickeys back in our young and single days. If my husband came home with one he'd be out the door.
