From the amount of makeup you actually own through to the ability to sniff any and all junk food, here are the 10 things he wished he knew before shacking up with you.


You spend way too long in the bathroom

Shower, hair, makeup- these things take time. He wished he knew exactly how much time. Now he knows to get in that bathroom quick otherwise he may miss out.

You use all the hot water

It’s not that women tend to enjoy hotter showers but also that there a lot of chores that have to be ticked off while we shower. Flawlessness doesn’t just happen.

Washing your hair takes time

Washing your hair is a process- one he didn’t realise until now. It also contributes to the point above...

What clothing limbo was

You have your clean clothes, your dirty clothes, and the clothes you have worn once but are too clean to wash but not clean enough to hang back up. The floor, or maybe for you it’s ‘the chair’ - that is where they stay in clothing limbo.

You don’t look #FLAWLESS 24/7

You don’t wake up magically primped and ready to go. And sometimes you want to just wear your tracksuit and lounge in front of the TV watching reality shows. That’s OK because he doesn’t look perfect all the time either.

He will always be finding your hair everywhere!

The constant styling of your hair means that he will be forever finding your strands all over the place. There is nothing to be done though so he’ll get used to it.

Your clothes and beauty products take up a lot of space

Women like their things, and there are usually a lot of them. Clothes, shoes, makeup, handbags, and hair products- all these things take up space.

You have very different versions of ‘clean’

No two people will have the same opinion on what is clean, so this one is best dealt with solid communication rather than any passive aggressive actions on your part.

Online shopping is a thing

Yes, online shopping is a thing. All those packages arriving almost daily really are for us and yes, we need it all.

You can always sniff out the sweet treats

There is no point trying to hide your packets of Oreos for later- we will know and we will find them. Women have a special talent for sniffing out the sweet treats.
