(If this thread needs to be moved to the proper forum it is completely understandable)

Okay, back to my issue, I think my boyfriend is a reptile. Well, we've been going out for several months and I'm his first girlfriend(he isn't ugly, he is actually very attractive, sorry just clearing that up before anyone says something that does not involve the topic). He says he hasn't dated before because he moves around a lot and he never really gets close to people. Anyway, sorry I will get to the point, we were sitting on his couch one day, this is when I first noticed it, and we were just staring at each other like 'young loves' do and his right eye turned into a slit. He blinked and it disappeared. It couldn't have been the lighting, because we didn't move and it changed because of just blinking it away. Well, he blinks a lot you see, he cant really control it, he twitches that way if you call it that. I mentioned it to him and he just turned away from me and said it was probably just the light and we should return to watching the movie.

A few days later, it happened again. Then again. In different places mind you, a lot of the times not in lightened places. Another time we went back to his house and went into his room, it was dark and we were just sitting on the bed. His eyes kind of glowed(not any particular color, not like an animal, just stood out) and they were slit. It freaked me out and I moved away. He moved away and had asked me if I was okay, I said yes of course. I didn't want to bring that issue up to him again. I thought I might talk to some of you here at ATS. I would like to say I have not always been a fan of the reptilian theories, I've never really understood them. (Of course after this, I've been lurking here once again like I have been for years)

On another occasion I ran my hand down his back under his shirt, we were just kissing nothing else besides that really..yeah, and on his lower back it felt kind of rough just a small part, and he just quickly moved my hand away. I thought that was weird, but I didn't say anything once again.

He is so sweet and shy, so you wouldn't really picture him as one of those so called "reptilians" everyone claims are Bush, Hilary, Dick Cheney, etc. I just really want to know what you all think. I mean, I probably wont get much advice because I don't think there is much to give, but I would like to know your opinions.

It really just sounds like a case of an overactive imagination in you and some eczema (on your boyfriend's back)

How clearly did you see the slit thing, was it clear as day or just one of those things you're not quite sure if you imagined or not? You are probably just seeing things fed to your imagination by the content on this site.

EDIT: to save making a second post for no reason:


Sweetheart, I've had that problem too.


It's so true.

Sweetheart, I've had that problem too. They start out as mammals, but they always transmogrify into lizards. I find copious volumes of high-quality alcohol help until you can extract yourself from the cage.

On the serious side, sounds like a contact problem to me.

Maybe that was it on his back and he was just embarrassed by that.

I see it a lot at different times. At first I did think I was imagining that, but it kept happening. I dont see it for long since he blinks quite often, but it always shows up. It was like half of his pupil was gone and made it look kind of jagged.

If you're talking about eye contacts, he doesn't wear any. One another note, he just recently got his eyes checked though and his eyesight apparently gets worse at night so he has to wear glasses when he drives at night.

That's very common. I'm night blind. I see great in fairly low light, and can barely see at all when a bright light comes along. Some friends looked at my eyes one night and my pupils were dilated to cover my iris. You couldn't see my iris at all.

If he has trouble seeing at night, I would doubt he is a reptile, as most reptiles have excellent night vision and can see frequencies that Humans cannot.



Snakes have rods and cones in their eyes, as do we, though in different numbers. They do not have the diversity colored oil droplets (presumed to have been lost when snakes when nocturnal and subterranean) in their photoreceptors that mammals and birds do, so, while they do have color vision, it isn't as broad ranged as ours is. They do have a yellow filter which, filling the lens, absorbs ultraviolet light, protecting the eye.

Snakes use a combination of infrared vision (developed in the trigeminal nerve), variable (by species) visual acuity and color detection, limited eye mobility, and chemosensation to find prey and recognize features in their environment (including their keepers).

Lizard (including geckos) and turtle retinas contain multicolored oil droplets in their photoreceptors, so they can perceive color. The opsin proteins in the cones in the eye are "calibrated" to detect different wavelengths. In many species, this enables them to see into the higher wavelengths beyond the scope of unaided human vision: into the UV range.

Nocturnal reptiles usually have smaller eyes than diurnal ones, but relatively large pupillary and lens aperture and cornea. This improves their light-gathering ability, but at the same time reduces visual acuity.

Lizards can focus on near and far by squeezing or stretching their lenses, using the ciliary muscles and annular pads. Pupils dilate and contract in response to light. Nocturnal geckos like the tokay have a stenopaic pupil: contracts into a vertical slit composed of a linear array of dots. Some nocturnal lizards have slit pupils, others are round. Lizards, unlike other reptiles, have a choroid body, called the conus papillaris. Projecting out into the vitrious humor, it nourishes the cornea.

I get rough patches on my back prety often. Sometimes it's from leaning against something and picking up the texture, or I have zits on my back. You say he's twitchy... how twitchy? Ever had your eye kinda spaz a bit?
MY question is how much do you care if he's reptillian?

Yes, but Im not speaking of his night blindness, I know that is fairly common. His pupils were not dilated though, that I would understand. They were normal, but just cut in half sorta, but it just keeps happening to his right eye. I never really saw it occur in his left accept at night in his room, but it could have been something else that night because the room was covered in mostly shadow with only the light of the television and headlights from cars in the street.

Dont get me wrong, Im not trying to prove he is a reptile or something other than human, Im just trying to detail the facts.

Actually I was talking about the requiring glasses to drive at night. I've known several people that happened to. They had 20/20 during the day, and had glasses for night.

My advice: Watch him on sunny days. If he sits on a rock all afternoon, he's probably a reptile.

That does make a lot of sense and would probably disprove my theory.

Well he told me a secret that he never told anyone else..he says he takes medicine for ADD, so pretty twitchy. His eyes spaz all the time, other people have asked why he does that. A lot of people think he is on drugs because his eyes are always lined red and he blinks a lot, but thats probably just allergies. Actually, I would probably still date him if he was reptilian. Probably like him even more
if that makes sense.

I know, I was just speaking of the slit pupil and stuff. I dont think the night eyesight would ever change his pupils.

I will do that

Actually he never really wants to go anywhere during the daytime. (he has to go to school of course)

Call me a skeptic, but I think I agree with the suggestion that you might be imagining this thanks to everything you have read on here.

I think there would be other signs/symptoms if he was a reptile.

I don't know a lot about reptilians but.. I seem to remember a show from when I was growing up called V and there were reptilian aliens who could look like human. If it is anything like that, then hmm.. what is his diet like?

Hmm.. might have to ask my co-conspirator to fill me in this a little bit more..

I suggest you go to meet his family. Be careful and if you feel uncomfortable, just follow your intuition.

I don't really know about his diet that much.

He hates Mexican food, he says it is too spicy. He likes to try a lot of new things, adding different mixtures and stuff onto his food. "Experimenting" if you will. Sometimes he doesn't eat for a day or so saying he "forgets", but I dont think that would be uncommon, I dont know.

Sure, I can understand. If he's really twitchy, his eye could be jerking really quickly.
