Men Are Admitting Things They Didn't Know Until They Lived With A Woman, And It's Insightful And...A Lot

    FYI, they can be bigger slobs than men!!!!

    Moving in with someone can kind of be a life-altering situation. It's a big moment in your life, where you learn a lot about your partner or roommate. And fortunately, for men who live with women, they learn A LOT — both good and bad things. Recently, Reddit user u/artudetan asked, "What did you not know or realize until after living with a woman?"

    Obviously, all women are different, and all men are different, but it's still fun to hear what men said about learning/realizing new things after living with a woman. Here's what they said:

    1. "They. are. SLOBS. too."


    2. "She'll let you believe you were clogging the toilet when it was her. I learned this when she moved out."


    3. "I learned that I wish I had a garbage disposal in the bathtub for all that long hair."

    4. "Apparently, cleaning the toilet on the regular is much, much more important than I'd previously thought."


    5. "Pockets are very rare for women's pants. Several years married and still shocked by this."


    6. "How many household items can become a bra hanger. From doorknobs to TVs to bedposts to end tables. I grew up with all sisters and never saw this until I lived with my ex-wife."

    7. "No matter how many bobby pins are in the house, there is always a need for more."


    8. "Be sure to have a trashcan in every bathroom."

    9. "Going to the grocery store can turn into reorganizing the entire pantry and refrigerator."


    10. "Everything lives in one place. Bags. Pouches. Bags to hold bags and pouches. Bags that hold multiple pouches, but no bags. Bags with pockets with pouches inside hidden zipper pockets. Purses. Purses with pouches with tiny Ziploc bags."

    11. "If you go to bed with a woman and her bra matches her knickers, you weren't the one who decided you were going to have sex that day/night. She decided that when she was getting ready."


    12. "My dad told my husband, 'You can never tell your wife I love you enough. A thousand times? She'll love to hear it again. Tonight. Tomorrow. The next day. You will make her day just saying those three words.'"


    13. "How much time they spend in the bathroom every night before going to sleep. No sir, it’s not just a matter of brushing your teeth and going to sleep."


    14. "Menstruation isn’t JUST bleeding once a month; it’s a whole cycle and affects the body in different ways throughout the month."


    15. "Once the house is clean, it isn't really clean."

    And lastly:

    16. "That some people don't like their ketchup in the fridge."
