You don’t really know everything about your partner until you spend some time living with them. This is the truth because these people are talking about things they only learn when living with one. Periods and the way women prepare, clean, hair clips …
There’s a lot more to it than just slapping a tampon wherever they think it goes. Biology classes don’t teach enough about the opposite sex. Scroll down and giggle with us as we watch men get surprised by things they never expected beyond their imagination.

“If they leave stuff at the bottom of the stairs, that means you’re supposed to bring it up. If it’s at the top of the stairs, you should bring it down. Also, the correct place for objects in the kitchen is where they currently reside. Stuff is gonna move around constantly, just roll with it.” – Brianplease

“Fine, I’ll say it.
I always thought that pads operated like bandaids and they’d just slap ’em over their vaginas and absorb everything. It wasn’t until I was… 27? When my girlfriend at the time had some as a backup in case she ran out of tampons and I opened it and looked. The adhesive was on the wrong side for my version of how they worked, and it dawned on me that they’re supposed to be stuck to their panties, not their vaginas. I only regret telling her of that revelation, because she laughed until she cried and then called her mom to tell her about it.” – myepenisisbigger
“That she owns only one truly GOOD BRA. There is only one, and part of your duty as a man is to protect The Good Bra. If you are doing laundry, you must take the greatest of precautions to make sure it is properly cleaned, dried, and stored. God forbid The Good Bra ever turn up missing or in the wrong drawer.

“When you’re having a really tough day, she unexpectedly comes home and surprises you with a bottle of your favorite drink, homemade cookies, and dinner you love. And then she cuddles with you while you vent about your now not-so-crappy day. And you realize what it’s like to actually have someone support you.
And you find yourself wanting to make sure the toilet seat is down, smiling when you can never find anything in the kitchen, rolling with it when the living room turns into a 12-stage laundry OCD deployment zone, and you laugh when you trip over her shoes that are now tangled in a knot of hair bigger than the dog.
Because your house/apartment is no longer a place you live at, it’s now your home. And it’s safe to be the real you, not the show you put on when you were dating.” – AndrogynousRain

“I was raised by a woman, so none of it was new to me, except: Period Panties.
I wasn’t shocked or disgusted by it because I wasn’t a 12-year-old; it was just like, ‘Huh. Yeah, I guess I’d have a separate selection of underwear to use when I’m menstruating, too. Why the hell would I ruin all of my sexy underwear?’” – saybeautifulthings
“Apparently, cleaning the toilet on the regular is much, much more important than I’d previously thought.” – onelittleworld
