When a man moves in with a woman for the first time, he tends to learn a lot about what women are really like.
A recent AskMen post on Reddit asked what men didn’t know or realize until after living with a woman. We’ve put together some of the top responses!
It’s Their Bed
This user has found out that the bed really belongs to his girlfriend.
According to him, all he “needs” is the edge of the bed and his girlfriend ends up taking the majority of the bed.
There Is A Right And Wrong Way
This man discovered that after he moved in with a woman, he found out that there was a right and wrong way to wash the dishes.
Unfortunately for him, he has been doing them wrong.
More Pillows Is Always The Answer
When this man moved in with his girlfriend, blankets and pillows just kept appearing.
He learned this is because there is no such thing as too many pillows, blankets or cushions!
Different Types Of Showers
It is hard for men to realize that there are different types of showers that women will take.
This man was surprised when he learned that women do not wash their hair each time they shower.
They Can Be Both
This man was shocked at how messy his partner was, but also how clean she was.
No matter how many things are around the bathroom counter, you can still make it look neat and tidy!
They Seem To Multiply
Is it wrong for someone to love having many glass jars around the house?
This man felt like it was a weird obsession that his partner had and they would end up in many different rooms of their house.
Bobby Pins Everywhere
This man was not ready for the amount of bobby pins that came to his house when he and his wife moved in together.
It seemed as thought there was never enough bobby pins!
It’s A Privilege
This man found out the hard way that he did not load the dishwasher properly.
He had loaded it wrong one too many times and was no longer allowed to load the dishwasher.
Hand Soap Location
Just because the hand soap was on the counter does not mean that it is in the correct location.
That was what this man did not know before he moved in with a woman.
Rules Of The Kitchen
This man would have liked to know that anything he left in the kitchen would get put away.
But if his girlfriend put anything in the kitchen, that was its new forever home.
Stay In One Place
This man did not know that there is a shower protocol that he was going to have to follow.
He was no longer allowed to just walk around the apartment after he got out of the shower.
There’s Only One
There is one good bra and you have to make sure that it stays the good bra.
There is a lot of pressure if the good bra is in the dirty pile when it’s your turn to do the laundry!
Don’t Do It Wrong
Men are surprised that there is a right and a wrong way to do the laundry.
This man, unfortunately, found out that he had been doing it wrong his whole life.
Was It Unplugged?

The hairs just keep turning up everywhere and sometimes they do not know why!
Notice Is Needed

He could not just spring an outing on her — she needed to be given at least 1 hour to make sure she would be ready.
Pockets Are A Luxury

The thing that shocked him the most was the fact that it is very rare for women’s pants to have pockets!

He was not prepared for his apartment to have plants everywhere.
