10 Things Found Only in Bachelor Pads
Empty beer cans aren't the only telltale sign of an all-male household, but they're a good start.
It shouldn't shock anyone that men and women might prefer to live in significantly different situations, but the truth is a lot of guys will clean up their lives (or at least their homes) when they get into at least a semi-serious relationship. You might think your boyfriend or husband leaves your home a dirty mess now, but just ask him about his place before he got together with you. Not every guy lives in a pigsty, but there are some things that can be found in most bachelor pads and generally not any other adult's home.
Here are 10 things that you probably won't see anywhere a woman's living.
10. Dirty socks
Sure, a lot of women and guys in relationships might leave some dirty laundry on the floor or maybe even on a counter, but dirty socks are the one thing you'll virtually never see outside of a bachelor pad. Maybe it's because so many people hate feet, but somehow leaving the T-shirt you wore yesterday is borderline acceptable, whereas a pair of smelly socks could be a relationship-ender.
9. Video games
This isn't to say that women don't play video games, or that a man can't be in a relationship and play video games at the same time, it's just that they're a lot less likely to center their living spaces around a Playstation or XBox than a single guy is. Odds are, a guy with a girlfriend might have his old Nintendo 64 tucked away with a small TV in a spare bedroom, but the man who doesn't have to worry about his girlfriend coming over at any time is playing Mario Kart on the big screen in the living room.
