Baffled Men Reveal What They Learned After Moving In With Their Lady

Moving in with a woman for the first time is an eye-opener. You learn some of the wildest things you never would’ve expected otherwise.

Men of Reddit shared what they found out after moving in with their partners, and it’s must-read stuff.

Those Darn Throw Pillows

Some people go crazy for decorative pillows, while others could care less about them. It depends on who you end up with, honestly.

This guy lucked out and got the woman who loves them.

An Expensive Accessory

He probably didn’t mind that they were so expensive until he started paying for them.

It wasn’t until then that he realized what women have to go through to meet beauty standards.

He Was Clueless

I’m not saying this guy is clueless, but there were many people who thought as he did.

It only makes sense for them to wipe when they’re done, but that’s me.

Get In And Get Out

This guy learned that he spends too much time on the toilet after seeing his wife finish in 30 seconds.

He probably needs to change his diet, but I don’t know that for sure.

When She Sleeps, You All Sleep

This one makes a ton of sense. She doesn’t want to go to bed alone, buddy.

He should cherish this while he can because he doesn’t know if she will always like that.

Powerful Burps

The funny thing about this is that some women secretly practice burping (learned from experience).

You shouldn’t have any shame if they can out burp you because some literally train for that.

Learn To Live With It

Well, it could be worse. Seeing hair everywhere isn’t that fun, but it’s what you have to adapt to.

The Bobby pins can be controlled, but the hair issue will always be there.

She Was Trying To Impress You

You should take it personally if the house weren’t clean when you first started going over.

She was trying to impress you, but once she got comfortable, it was a wrap.

That’s Not What She Likes

You might be able to get away with this behavior on your own, but not with her.

Just wear it once and maybe find a spot to put it if you want to throw it on again.

Never Tell Them It Looks The Same

If this is true for many men, the one thing they should never do is tell them it looks the same.

She spent all that time doing something; at least tell her she looks good.

A Powerful Relief

Sometimes, that’s how it is. Just get used to it and live your life as you normally would.

Maybe they want it to be over with right away, so they make it happen.

He Thought They Were On Something Else

This guy thought the pads they use were placed somewhere else this whole time, which is fair.

You don’t learn certain things until you actually live with a woman, and this is one of the learning points.

Don’t Ever Be In Her Dreams

It might be a dream to you, but it’s way more than that to her.

She could think that it’s foreshadowing what you’re going to do in real life eventually. Tread softly.

Deal With It

They’re just bras, what’s the big deal? Would you rather your own underwear scattered all over the floor?

Probably not, so this might not be something to complain about if you were smart.

This Is Like The Dream Situation

Similar to the dream situation, a woman might think you’re going to do something the man in a movie did.

You aren’t (probably), but she doesn’t know that for sure yet.

It’s An Unwritten Law

She never knows when she might have to get dressed up in a blink of an eye.

It slows her down having to take out all that stuff on the spot.

She Must Like Straight Better

I’m not sure how many other women participate in this daily morning hair change, but there are a few.

It’s strange that the partner never knew his lady did this.

She Needs To Be Sure

She needs to be sure she’s presentable before going out in the public. She has all those accessories and makeup options for a reason.

Adjust by telling her that you need to leave an hour before you actually have to leave.

Whoops, She Did It Again!

Well, this one might not apply to every woman, but maybe she thinks you’ll handle it.

That’s probably exactly what she thinks if she keeps on doing it to you.

Hot Showers Are Real

If you thought you took hot showers, you haven’t felt anything yet. Some women take heat seriously.

It’s one of those things where you have to decide if this is something you want to endure before stepping in the shower.
