11 Things No One Tells You About Living With Guys at University
When it comes to picking where to live in second year and beyond, most people just pick the friends they are closest to, without thinking of the bigger picture. And if you happen to be one of those girls who are tightly within a male circle of friends, this might be the worst decision you have ever made. Here’s why.
1. They don’t buy toilet paper.
Apparently you use it more than they do. Hmmm….
2. You can’t leave underwear lying around.
Be careful where you hang up your washing, or they will be teasing you for weeks.
3. They hate cleaning.
And will try to avoid it at all costs. You might not have realised it, but you are, in fact, the house slave. (Not a student at all).
4. You can’t share toiletries.
We’ve all done it – when we’ve run out we have snaffled just a little bit of whatever is lying around. But now you can’t do this. Unless you want to smell like boy that is.
5. They never remember your birthday.
If you want them to pay attention to it, you’d better start hinting at least 6 months before.
6. They constantly make you go out.
And therefore you never get any work done. How do they do it!?
7. And constantly make you wingman them.
Suddenly all your friends are potential partners and it is your job as housemate to set them up.
8. You have to put up with shaving hairs in the sink.
ALWAYS. Even when they don’t shave. No idea how they manage it.
9. They are never able to sympathise about your period pains.
Expect comments like “What’s so bad about periods anyway?” and “It’s not like getting kicked in the balls, is it?” Let’s find out…
10. They are far too honest.
If you don’t look good in that dress, they will not spare your feelings…
11. And, of course, FIFA.
You will come to hate this game.
