I got caught up in a “Sex and The City” marathon not too long ago, and one of my favorite episodes ever, “The Good Fight,” happened to come on.

That particular one really resonated with me for a few reasons, namely because I, much like Carrie Bradshaw, suffer from SSB: Secret Single Behavior. While Bradshaw would never let her significant other see her eating a stack of saltine crackers smothered in grape jelly, there’s a fuckload of beauty-related practices I’d never ever let my man — if I had one — see me perform.

Before y’all flip out on me, know this: I’m not alone. According to thissurvey, 70% of women believe hiding their thorough beauty regimen from their partners is paramount in maintaining the magic in their relationships. I am proudly a part of that 70% (even though I am currently single).

    I have been married for close to four years, and met my husband my junior year of college close to 10 years ago. Although he knows I were make-up I do not allow him to see the process of me concealing this, that and the other.
