25 People Share The Creepiest Thing They Accidentally Found Out About A Close Friend

Think before you type. If you Google your friends, you might discover something you never wanted to know, just like these people from Ask Reddit.


1. He sexually abused his own daughter

“I had lost my friends’ email address so I googled his name to see if I could find it right quick. He turned up on the sex offenders website as a class 2 offender. Turned out that he diddled his 8 year old daughter and her friend a couple years before I met him.” — Turds4Tots

2. He pretended to date his cousin

“My buddy puts pictures of himself on Facebook posing with his attractive female cousin. If you didn’t know they were related, you would think they’re dating. I’m almost positive he wants people to think he has a girlfriend. When he gets comments like, “Who’s the chick?” He’ll just reply with a winky face or something ambiguous. I know for a fact that the girl is his cousin.” — GilesCorey89

3. He got his sister pregnant

“Had a buddy who I let stay at my house for several weeks before he moved away to Florida to stay with his grandparents and sister. Several months later he moved back, but I didn’t see him hardly at all because he moved to a different town. Was hanging out with a mutual friend who worked with him and asked how our friend was doing.

“Oh, didn’t you hear?”

“Hear what?”

“<Friend> got arrested. Cops came up from Florida to take him back down. When he stayed with his grandparents he was raping his sister and then he got her pregnant. They did DNA testing to confirm it was his when the baby was born.”

“WHAT?!? Holy shit! That is fucked!”

I would never have suspected anything like that from the guy, obviously, or I never would have let him stay at my house. Just goes to show you, you never know about some people.” — Phant0mX

4. He took photos of women’s feet

“One of my old friends used to go around and take pictures of women’s feet, in high school. If they were wearing sandals or flip flops, he would try and secretly snap a picture. By the end of the year, he had over 400 photos.” — thelovepirate

5. He acted in pornos

“I found out a former co-worker’s ‘modeling’ was actually porn. My roommate at the time did a search with his porn name which was different than his given name, and, sure enough, there he was with a cock in his mouth. He still doesn’t know I know.” — steez101

6. He curb stomped a stranger

“Not a friend, but a teacher in high school. He told me and couple of friends outside of class about how he came to wear dentures: He was literally curb stomped for sleeping with another guy’s girlfriend. That’s horrible enough but the creepiest part was the nonchalant way he ended the story: “It hurt like hell, but I got him back pretty good with a shotgun.” He ended up getting fired for picking up my friend out of his chair by the neck and choking him. Scary dude.” — username_redacted

7. He committed a double homicide

“Guy comes in and wants a job tooling on bikes, has tools and experience, we hire him, we become friends. 2 years later I found out he served 17 years in the pen for a double homicide. Found his wife and lover in bed, beat them to death. First weapon of choice, pillow case with soup cans in it.” — itsnotbacon

8. He was kidnapped as a child

“I googled my friend’s name once and found out he was kidnapped by his nanny when he was four years old.” — [deleted]

9. He fucked the dog

“A friend told me that he discovered his GF’s younger brother in the bedroom with his dog and a jar of peanut butter.” — Freshenstein

10. He masturbated with his brother

“I found out that one of my friends and his brother watch porn together. Together.” — Skyguy95

11. He lied about joining the army

“My friend not only lies about being in the Army, he lies about getting a purple heart for being stabbed. What kind of creepy attention whore does that?” — Sanskrit_Typo

12. He carved his crush’s initials into his skin

“During 8th grade, my friend carved his initials and the initials of his crush into the back of his hand. I noticed it when we were making up a secret handshake, but he had been trying to hide it for a really long time. I have no idea why he thought that was a good idea, but he was dangerously obsessed with her.” — japanairkicked

13. He had a brutal rape fantasy

“I stumbled across a story a buddy of mine had written about a thirteen year old girl he had a crush on (we were 18-20 at the time). Without going into to too much detail, it was a very disturbingly detailed and graphic rape fantasy he had about her.” — Pat_the_Bunny

14. He recorded sex with strangers

“He video records every single girl he has sex with (without telling them.) He has a camera turned towards his bed for when he brings girls home.

He has just tons of videos on his computer, I keep telling him its fucking creepy.” — [deleted]

15. He was obsessed with a girl

“I found a USB stick at our school’s lounge, so I took it and wanted to keep it — because it was 32gb!

Turns out it belonged to one of my friends… I really was going to return it since I knew the guy, but then I found hundreds of photos of one of our friends that he saved from Facebook. Screencaps of all her status messages and saved files from all their conversations… I know for a fact that the chick told me that she’s getting weirded out by how clingy and dependent our guy friend was with her. I didn’t know he was THAT obsessed.

Also, there were film scripts and story drafts about him and her… It was just awkward to return it to him… so i just kept using it.” — space_monkey420

16. He took pictures of me sleeping

“My friend took pics of me while I was sleeping. I’m a guy…”  — harry821

17. He masturbated in front of us

“A friend of my best friend in middle school apparently used to come over to my friend’s house and just randomly masturbate… right in front of our mutual friend. He would get scolded then it wouldn’t happen for a couple of weeks. Inevitably, it would happen again and he would have to get yelled at again and be told to ‘put it away.’

I could never look the dude in the face any time the three of us hung out after that.” — InferiousX

18. He sold weapons to the mafia

“Friend’s uncle sold illegal weapons for the Serbian mafia.

When he was ten he found out because he almost opened a fake-wall door and his dad came over and slapped him. Later his father told him what his uncle had behind the wall and why.” — Offensive_Username2

19. Her son was a murderer

“Not a friend per se, but a teacher I became close to. Anyways, about 5-ish years ago, a highschool kid in my town brutally murdered a little boy on a path in their neighborhood. He stabbed him to death and was convicted and went through the justice system.

A couple years later, I have this awesome geometry teacher in high school. She was super cool, and I really loved her class and talked to her every now and then outside of school. One thing I noticed though, was that she would randomly not show up a lot through the school year. She never gave explanations for her absences.

Towards the end of that school year, I find something out. My geometry teacher is the mom of the kid that murdered that boy years before. She would not show up at school because she was going through the appeal process for her son’s case. Totally blew my mind and made me look at her life in a different way.” — Dolgthvari

20. He abused his girlfriend

“I saw a good friend of mine twisting his girlfriends wrist underneath the table. She’s quite a timid girl, and I could see by her face that she was in pain. They always seemed like a normal couple, but after getting a little peek into their personal life, It freaked me out.” — moondrizzle

21. He raped a little girl

“The other day, I found out that a friend from high school was recently arrested for receiving oral sex from a girl who was under 10.” — TheVich

22. She watched the weirdest porn

“I introduced a friend to Reddit a few months back, and a situation falling into this category arose. We were using her laptop when she went to type something in the search bar. Well, while it was blank it began to form a little list of her previous search queries on different sites before she typed anything in. Some of the things that popped up included: “Fuck me hard Hentai”, “Shit Sucking Hotness”, and one that I believe will be forever impossible to unsee “Cum Guzzling Orangutan”. We just sat there in silence for a few seconds until she quickly typed something in. And then she turned to me without really looking at me and said, “woah, what was all that? haha…” Feeling pretty awkward about it, all I said was, “I don’t know.. Sometimes some weird stuff pops up here. Ahem..” We never spoke of it again. Except for the fact that now one of my insults to people is calling them a Cum Guzzling Orangutan. That shit’s gold.” — MangerDesCravates

23. She kept her used tampons

“I had gone over my friends house a few times and I always notice this strong smell coming from her room. I just figured that’s how her room always smelt and just brushed it off. One day we had walked into the room and there was this drawer left open. To my surprise…. She had been keeping all of her old and used tampons and pads. Her reply was ‘I’m never bothered to throw them out.'” — Simply_Ood

24. They hid drugs around the house

“I used to do some house/pet-sitting for some friends of the family twice a year when they went on vacation. Immaculate house, very nice people.

The last time I did it (about two years ago), while flushing the master bathroom toilet about an hour before they got back, realized the chain had come loose. I lift the lid, and notice a large Zip-Lock bag taped to the back of the toilet. The contents: about a quarter of primo marijuana, a pipe, a vibrator, anal beads, a couple of cock rings, a flash drive (did not investigate), and a tiny amount of what I assume to be cocaine. I had uncovered their secret stash. The catch: she is a school board trustee, he is a church deacon, what?” — itistherabbit84

25. All of his passwords were about his old crush

“I always carpooled and go to the gym to workout with my close friends. We have these electronic lockers that require four digits and my password happens to be my birth date November 21 so 1121 is the password. After finishing working out, I accidentally opened friend’s locker instead of mine. I asked him why his password my birth date. He looked kind of embarrassed and brushed me off. I went on Facebook and checked if anyone had the same birth date as I did. “Stephanie” my close friend’s crush in high school had the same birth date. My close friend is now twenty one years old, and I think he lost contact with her for over three years. All his four digit passwords including the ATM is the same, his crush’s birth date.” — laughingman789 Thought Catalog Logo Mark
