    wear an oxygen mask

    stand twenty feet away and just blow kisses

    manufacture a similarly bad smell and leave it by their pillow

    or...in a revolutionary style.....

    Tell them.

    If you really love that person you just inform the person nicely that he/she has bad breath.....better you than others and might hate you if he gets embarrassed with it and feels you knew but didn't say anything

    Hey, I was asked this question by a friend, he tried his best, but eventually left her. I think this is one of the hardest tasks of all to love someone and not being able to stand them.
    I guess you just have to be plain and say it!   Good luck there....  smile

    I agree with sir_tallest its just best to be honest your partner will appreciate you much more for it. I would like to think my wife would do the same for me if that was the case

    Just tell them...my husband and I both agree that we'd much rather the other person tell us about something unpleasant rather than discover later that we've been subjecting others to it all along. For instance, if he's been working all day and we're getting ready to go somewhere, he knows that "Were you going to take a shower before we go?" translates into "You stink, you might want to do something about it." It's not always easy to bring it up, but it will be appreciated later. Anyone who loves you and knows you love them should be able to accept that you have their best interests in mind and you're not saying it to hurt their feelings or make them self-conscious.

    In the case of bad breath, if the person brushes regularly already then it's a matter of concern for their dental health. Let them know that you're worried there might be something wrong and suggest a visit to the dentist to find out if there's an underlying cause. My ex developed bad breath at one point in our relationship, and at first I ignored it...but it got worse every time he brushed. Though he was initially offended that I brought it up, he went to the dentist and discovered that he had an advanced cavity, and every time he brushed it cleared out the gunk enough for me to smell it rotting. He was grateful to know about it, and because I mentioned the smell (repeatedly) he got to the dentist before it would have required a root canal.
