Turns out, men’s image of what women are like when nobody’s watching is often very far from the truth. Well, blame it on TV and social media, but the reality is often very different.
And how could one better learn about the little female quirks nobody knows about than actually living with them? “What’s something you didn’t realize that women did until you lived with them?”, someone asked on AskReddit, sparking more than 4k entertaining and honestly hilarious comments.
Scroll down through the most entertaining eureka moments from men who lived with women and had their understanding of the world challenged big time, and get ready to cringe. Are guys really that clueless, you may wonder?
Spend hours doing hair and make up and doesn’t look all that different from when they started.
Also, don’t ever say that . I learned the hard way .
I didnt realize women paid so much for bras until I got married and also ended up paying too much for bras as well.
When you date a girl and you come to her place, everything is always clean and organized, but once you live with her you learn that she is as much of a slob as you are.
That women have magically regenerating hair. Otherwise my girlfriend should be bald judging by the amount of hair she leaves around the apartment.
I never realized just how much blood comes out of a woman on her period until I walked in on a friend taking a shower…I honestly thought she was dying and bleeding out.
Steal my hoodies then complain when I stole her bras.
When it’s time for her to go to bed, it’s actually time for us to go to bed.
Women pee with a pressure hose.
I still get a little scared when I hear a girl have a good piss and it sounds like she’s boring a hole through the toilet.
Women use a lot of toilet paper, ALOT.
My girlfriend of a year had naturally curly hair that she straightened every morning. Never had a clue.
My girlfriends burps are far more powerful than mine. I beat her in farts however.
Take scalding hot showers. It’s like the only use the cold knob has is to hold the body scrubber thing.

That decorative pillows are a thing. You carefully choose and purchase them just so you can spend the rest of your life pushing them out of the way, and occasionally cleaning them.
It took me a while to figure out that pads are stuck onto the panties as opposed to right on the vagina!
Get angry with me for what I did in her dream.
When I was growing up, my (single) mum would always tell me ‘Make sure you put the toilet seat down, your future wife will thank me.’
Second year of uni, was in a house share with two guys (me and another), two girls. I was genuinely shocked that the girls didn’t put the toilet seat down. (Okay, so it turns out that there is a difference between the ‘seat’ and the ‘lid’.)
Still, I always put the seat lid down – apart from anything else, when you flush when you’re wearing shorts, you realise just how much spray there is…
Different grades of tampons are for heavy or lighter flows, I could figure that.
But apparently wearing a super flow for a week instead of changing out for multiple lights is a good way to give yourself a bit of the ole toxic shock.
I still don’t know what she does with that weird rock thing in the shower.
I was about 19 or 20 when I learned women wipe after they pee. It’s not that it didn’t make sense to me, I just never had a reason to even consider it as a thing. So I was quite dumbfounded when I saw it happen.
Had no clue I loaded the dishwasher ‘wrong.’
I did not realize that women had to pluck the hair out on their nipples. I was shocked!
I was ready for ‘decorative pillows’. I was ready for wall art.
I was NOT ready for bras everywhere the first time she did laundry after moving in.
When I first moved in with my girlfriend, I got yelled at for putting ‘dirty’ clothes with my clean ones. I was totally under the impression I could wear that shirt like two more times.
Women shaving their bits. The first time I saw my girlfriend do this, I was immediately terrified, as if I knew a better way to do it.
“You don’t use those towels, they’re for decoration”….For who??
My wife poops 3 times a day and it only take like 30 sec! I poop once a day and it take a good 10 mins if not longer.
Bobby pins and hair everywhere, suppose I will be okay if fallout happens
Maybe this is isolated, but how often she’s in the bathroom for a pee. My mother and sister never had liquids run through them as quick as my fiance. Like, glass of water she has maybe an hour before needing to piss. It’s tons of toilet paper and a bother on road trips.
Our roommate was also shocked that men “pee so loudly”. I’m over 6 feet tall, I stand to pee, how the hell do you think I should pee silently?
Girls actually do that throw all your clothes on the bed thing that you see in sitcoms.
That my Sunday morning hangover after a big night out with the boys ( not a regular occurrence ) absolutely meant that the vacuuming had to be done throughout the house then and only then.
