Things Men Have In Their Homes If They Have A Girlfriend

“Baby, I know I said you could bring your artwork to feel more comfortable. But that picture has to go. It gives me the beegees. And I hear it makes your balls fall off.”

There’s this popular misconception that until women come into our lives our homes are littered with mismatched furniture, magazines, no curtains, and the biggest television our paychecks will allow. Oh and that we don’t have dishes. We have dish. We have exactly one plate, one fork, one knife, one spoon, one machete, and a bunch of Solo cups and paper plates.

We eat Ramen noodles or steak with no vegetables and our refrigerators are filled to the brim with water and condiments. Don’t lie, your fridge is full of Chik-Fil-A BBQ and ketchup packs. Those Chik-Fil-A joints are ingenious. Sometimes I go to Chik-Fil-A just to get ketchup packets.

I AIN’T GOT NO WORRIES.

Well, the other popular misconception is that when men find good women, they clean us up and wipe the sleep out of our eyes and bring their keen decorative abilities and tidiness (ha!) and turn us into GQ Men of the Year. While that rarely ever happens – and a vast majority of you all’s idea of quality decoration means shopping at Ross and only Ross – many women do tend to alter the things that are in our homes. I know dudes who literally never bought a mattress until they got a girlfriend. Air mattress life. Swag.

Real ninja talkin. Shut the f*ck up. Ho.

So here are some things a man will have in house if he has a girlfriend and she spends a significant amount of time there or lives with him.

1. Candles

Chick dig wax. And I ain’t talking about Stax. #BARS But for some odd reason, women love introducing candles into a man’s apartment. Or house. Or trailer. If there’s a commitment, there’s a candle. Trust me. I do think that candles do bring ambiance into the equation, but if we are to assume that most mens home reeks of gym socks and ferrets, then a candle likely won’t make a bit of difference. Though I do appreciate a vanilla scented candle. In fact, I feel like dude start buying candles after they get women in their lives randomly.

2. Inspirational artwork

Women love them some inspirational artwork. I figured I could just type a bunch of inspirational shit using a tweegram with a typewriter font, print it out, and give it out to women as a Christmas gift. Stuff that you’d find in a fortune cookie or Joyce Meyer book. But since many women like inspiration, and many of us have art that leaves much to be desired – posters thumbtacked on the wall do suck – there’s a chance that there will be a framed picture of 50 words or less somewhere in his home.

3. Oddly named ice creams

Basically anything from the Ben & Jerry line. They’ve got some seriously odd named stuff over at B&J.

4. Real hangers

Many of us don’t make the switch from wire hangers to plastic or wood hangers until we…ever. But wire hangers are chick repellent. Like bad credit and Rush Cards.

5. A period kit

You know, the one with the heating pad, Advil/Motrin/Generic Pain Killer, some chocolate something or other, actual pads or tampons or whatever the chick riding the horse with Herpes wears. Basically, anything his girl has ever said she’s needed during her time of the month. Ever.

6. A framed picture of something

It’s likely to be a framed picture of her at some point. But chicks also seem to dig frames. And especially in the home of their boo. Or beau. or TROOOOOJAN MAAAAAAAAAN.

7. “Art”

Women like being comfortable. And one way in which women get comfortable is via the art in their homes that makes them feel like a piece of them exists in said space. That along with…

8. Blankets

When I visit women’s homes there are blankets everywhere. Apparently women get cold a lot. Most dudes don’t have blankets or pillows on couches. A chick will turn your dudecouch into a place to sleep and lay in comfort with a glass of wine and a book that will never get read.

That’ll do pig.

I think I’m making this a pseudo man-week. So what else will a guy have in his house if he has a girlfriend? Ladies, how’d you take over your man’s space (if you did)? Fellas, what happened to your space once you got a girl?

Talk to me. Petey.

    Toilet paper that isn’t Angel Soft… :-/

      Hey, men use toilet paper less. So long as it gets the job done, who cares, especially for something we only use once a day. :)

    • http://stanoffewwords.wordpress.com Tristan

      A roll of Scotts could last me, when my ex moved in in came these stupid dumb thick toilet paper that ran out every two days.

    • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

      I disagree with this. I have never had that craptastic (no pun intended) toilet tissue. I always come with the Charmin two-play sh*t. (again no pun intended)

      Decent knives ( O_O )
      Coupons.
      Storage containers of various shapes/sizes.
      A clothes rack.
      Cords to wrap up my wayward speaker wires.
      Single-purpose furniture (no more card table that converts into a desk/dinner table/exercise equipment)
      Mirrors. Lots of mirrors.

      I have no less than 3 throw blankets in my living room which also double as yoga mats.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/IluminatiNYC Todd

        Huh? I get the throw blanket thing, but you’d think they’d be awkward for yoga. Anything good for yoga would be a crummy blanket and vice versa, at least for me.

        • Breezy

          Plus wouldn’t those slide around when you are doing Yoga?

          • SweetSass

            I have a ‘felt-like’ one that stays in place pretty well on my carpet… kinda like velcro. it doesn’t shift around barely at all.

            • Juiciest Mango

              girrrrrrl, how is yoga working out for ya? I was reading stories somewhere, can’t remember and these folks were in rehab because of having stretched and torn thangs!! They’d been doing it for years! Mind you, they were TEACHERS of yoga. OUch.

              • SweetSass

                I am doing Insanity workouts. The ‘stretches’ in there are yoga. Because I did yoga a long time ago in college I recognized the movements.

                Yoga is great for strength training, flexibility, and ‘leanness’. I’ve never seen a fat yogini. That being said, you absolutely must find the right yoga instructor. There are a lot of bastardized styles out there.

                • Juiciest Mango

                  So true @the bastardized styles.

                  I didn’t know that. I’ve always wanted to try it, but upon reading that, I decided to stick to what I know best. Walking.

                  • Breezy

                    Quick story about my yoga experience: I was staying at a hotel that offer free yoga classes…I decided to check it out. Got in there, the music was soothing, the lights were a little dim, everyone was relaxed and bending and stretching and then the lady on the mat next to me let out the biggest fart I have ever heard in my entire life. I gingerly picked up my shid and left.

                    • Juiciest Mango

                      LMAOOOO!!! Oh mi gosh. Usually loud farts are not smelly, well, they could be, BUT the ones that are silent and come out like “psssssssssss” you better RUNNNNNNN!

                    • SweetSass

                      Girl, I’ve been eating a very high fiber diet… I keep my Gas-X in my purse. It’s that serious. Raw broccoli and cooked cabbage do a a number on my guts!

                • https://twitter.com/#!/IluminatiNYC Todd

                  I did Yoga with P90X. That ish will kick yo’ a$$$ for real.

                  I do remember when I first tried Yoga before that though. I went to this gym that was a known musclehead spot, and they decided to attract women with yoga. Being adventurous, I decided to give it a shot. MAN, listen! I was looking straight Special Ed in that piece. 6’5″ 250 lbs does not a yogini make! I’m better now, but it took a lot of rumbling, bumbling and stumbling!

                  I take a dump err day about this time and I think the TP lasts about two weeks. With that being said, I would always keep plenty of TP; those awkward moments when you run out and have to use alternative wiping materials is not cool.

            • Rewind

              Proper diet infers we do it at least 2-3 times a day.

              I know how much toilet paper I use twice a day. Of course a woman would use more, as she has more than one hole in need of toilet paper.

              • curlygirl

                Thank You!!! All these VSSs ans VSBs talking about only going once per day… I can’t. Apparently there are a lot of people walking around who are both figuratively and literally full of ish. Adjust your diets people!

                • Wild Cougar

                  That’s actually incorrect info about everybody needing to go several times a day. Some people go on schedule no matter what they eat. Frequency isn’t as important as…………um……mass

                    PS, I will need to apologize to everyone and myself at VSB for my first comment on the site being dedicated strictly to…..defecating

                  I came to the conclusion last year that any person, especially a woman, that says she never poop at least twice a day is just a nasty muthafucka. But that’s my bougie ass after I learned this info myself.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/IluminatiNYC Todd

        Exactly! It got to the point where I could see how I was doing with the ladies by tracking how long a roll lasted in my house. If a roll lasted 2 weeks instead of 3, it was a sign of, um, good business. :)

    • Breezy

      And this reason right here is why I told WIP last week not to drink ninjas bath water…sh!t crumbs! One roll of toilet paper in 3 weeks is utter bulllllshid! Yall nasty.

      • Rewind

        Did it occur to you people might wash their ass afterwards? Or get some Charmin wipes to get their “Freshy Fresh” on after the toilet paper?

    • http://www.twitter.com/black_yoda Black Yoda

      Not only that. You’ll get cursed out for having that single ply sh!t. Women go through TP like an old school ticker tape machine. Invest in the 2-ply rolls with, like, aloe and lotion woven into it. They love the luxurious feel. :-) You’ll spend about 4 or five dollars, but it’s worth it. If you really want to impress her, buy some flushable wet wipes. You get many cool points for that once you get over the suspicious look for being a grown man with wet wipes in your bathroom.

      • http://www.twitter.com/mcnairian5 Fiveisthenumber

        Some times a Ninja needs those. When we had our son, that gave me a good reason to sample the wet wipes…nice.

    How would I take it over? I’d first take control of the kitchen: I’d fry chicken, and bake brownies and stock it with pots, pans, measuring cups and food processors he’s never even heard of before. Decorative “company” plates and a fat stack of our “regular” paper plates.

    Next would be the bedroom. Kinky stuff tucked nicely under the bed and/or in the end tables. Also there would be end tables. Down bed cushion. Silk pillowcases (an important must for any sista) and oversized pillows.
    And yes to candles.

    And yes to fancy bath soap.

    And a personal touch, to any place that is actually mine I must have one of those cheapo rock formations that have water trickling over them. I must have it. Must.

      Silk pillow cases. Nice. No satin tho… ever! I have never been so tired (and cold) in all my life as to chase satin sheets and pillows sliding all over and off the bed as when I had satin sheets. Live and learn moment. Oddly, my guy and I have had in-depth conversations about sheets, particularly thread count. He does 400 and up. I buy 600 and up. But, the ones I prefer are my 1000 count sheets. The bad thing is I never want to get out of the damn bed. :D

      • Breezy

        + 100 on the 400 or higher thread count. Its like sleeping on a cloud.

          My grirlfriend, now wife, thought I was being an uppity kneegrow when I told her about my sheet requirements until she slept on some 400+ sheets secented with lavender.

      if i had a boyfriend and we picked our own place, i would start by coming up with a decor and scent theme for every space: living/dining, master bedroom, gameroom/guestroom, office. then id fill out each space, basic but impactful. then id super stock the kitchen and bathrooms whilst learning to cook his food preferences, next id familiarize myself with the area and locals for when i have to run errands, then id have to grill him on whatever else i need to know about his routines and stuff. but id feel COMPLETELY out of place in a dudes house. like HIS house?

      I have to say this silk pillowcase stuff is some bullsh*t. I paid some cheese for some silk pillowcases and they did not keep my hair any smoother than regular pillow cases. Broke me out a little too. High thread count cotton pillow cases have been the best.

      • SweetSass

        It’s better to save your dough, get a satin nightcap and use a hair pomade at night like olive oil, etc.

        That is what I do and it keeps my locks shiny and bright. Especially since I’m trying to grow my hair out long, long.

    Well hell. Paint me a smurf and call me Blue. My man has more blankets and art in his barracks than I do at my place. I’m warm natured and not much at decorating.

    My place changes because he requires snacks in my pantry. I require coke zero in his.

    Observations from life:
    Pillowcases that don’t have cartoons on them

      • chameleonic

        but he CLEARLY just seemed angry. i dont think he wants a woman to complete anything.

        • Breezy

          Chameleonic: Ummmm, that’s not true. How in the world did you arrive at that conclusion…PJ is not angry…far from it. I honestly don’t know what you could possibly be getting at.

          • mena

            Exactly. In with Breezy. PJ rarely comes off angry (if ever) and it take a WHOLE lot to set him off. I think I saw the “arsonist” once and it was more like his second cousin removed from his mama’s side.

              And i apologize for all the grammatical errors in my comment. D@mn!!!

          • chameleonic

            he sounds……like he doesnt want anyone in his space. i dont think any man who wants a woman to complete his home says anything like ‘ho’ or ‘thatll do pig’. im not sure how any woman arrives at the conclusion this is a pleasant form of communication.

                LOL. forget you guys!

              You need to understand when PJ is playing around and having fun with his writing. This is the way he usually writes (the way that i have seen him write for a year and a half now).

              Don’t take it so seriously. And i swear sometimes he is quoting songs or movies.

              Just chill and enjoy the convo.

              • chameleonic

                perhaps. but i thought he was serious and if any guy wanted me to spruce up his home i would expect him…to just ask. if he spoke to me this way i would honestly take that as him saying the relationship is over.

            • Rewind

              Shawty chill, this is all jokes.

              Could you imagine being a neighbor to a man that was arguing with a woman over the decor of his home, and he says “get on my level ho!”. No?

              Because it never happened. Now hush and remain cute.

            • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

              well one thing we both agree on is that you do not belong in my home.

              • chameleonic

                i thought we agreed months ago i wouldnt even wipe my a*s with it. youre right. i DONT belong in your home, so sell that sh*t for a better decision in real estate.

            Just 1 & 2..i aint taking any other movies with those dudes in it afterwards

    • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

      You know, I can’t imagine many folks activel having this whole collection. However, I wouldn’t take issue with anybody who had the collection. Hell, if I was in grad school, my dissertation would be a thorough analysis of the Tyler Perry catalog.

      • Iceprincess2

        Mane all you need is “family that preys,” the rest of his movies all follow the same formula: boy does girl wrong, girl finds inner strength, some man pursues her but she’s not having it, then she falls in love with him, a crazy granny us running around, & someone is/was molested. The end.

        • mena

          You messed up. The molested part comes first then the rest follows.

  • DG

    “…and a vast majority of you all’s idea of quality decoration means shopping at Ross and only Ross…”

    That was funny…

    • chameleonic

      im tryna figure out why hes mad its ONLY ross….

      • msdebbs

        right what about tj maxx, marshalls and home goods?

        • chameleonic

          bedbath, havertys, kings lane. all these cutesy little niche boutiques you find on the ether.

        High Low luxury tip from Sigma Since 93:

        Buy the Bed in a bag from Ross, TJ Max, Marshall’s, Burlington, etc. and replace the sheets with a high thread count solid color from Tarjay.

        • Wild Cougar

          Ew. Bed in a bag, though? You know those comforters are made with the cheapest materials, right? I get itchy remembering my bed in a bag days.

          And you might as well throw that skirt/dust collector/missing shoe hiding/cat refugee camp creating thing in the trash along with those scratchy shams that end up on the floor looking like little demons scaring me when I get up for some water cuz I`m parched from sweating under that cheap polyester comforter.

          • Sigma_Since 93

            I have a platform bed with a memory foam mattress. The cover and pillows are for show. For us it’s all about the sheets anyway.

            • Sigma_Since 93

              It’s good to hear from you WC! If I ever divorced, the my bedroom set up or my comforter would not be the reasons you’re getting up for water.

            • Wild Cougar

              see, I don’t get that fancy print comforters and pillows for show thing. I know a lot of ladies like that. But how many people are you gonna give a tour of your bedroom. Cuz the only one Im tryna show off for is gonna be in the bed with me and I want it to be my fancy undies that he’s impressed by.

              • Sigma_Since 93

                I’m with you WC but happy wife happy life. I consider it a win win because she get’s the look she wants and I get my cozy sheets.

    • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

      its funny cuz its true.

      • Iceprincess2

        You forgot ikea & pier one!

  • Se7en

    A full bedroom comforter set…bed skirt, fitted sheets, comforter & shams, Pillows!! It’s a must!!

    • That Ugly Kid

      I have all of these, but no girlfriend (yet, although I am working on it, vehemently).

      I don’t know if this is a good thing, or a bad thing….

    • mena

      No it is not. I cannot stand having 50-11 different pillows on my bed with matching patterns and an entire bedroom set.

      Feel like I just got in my feelings over that. I apologize.

      • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

        its okay. me too.

      • Rewind

        It’s ok, because the normal reaction to seeing that many pillows and designs on something you’re supposed to just sleep on should as be similiar to a Vietnam vet.

        • mena

          Maybe not Vietnam but every time i see one of those beds in Macy’s i am just thinking to myself, who in the world needs all those pillows, for what reason, and who are you allowing to come into your bedroom to see the decorations??????? I just become overwhelmed.

    • Juiciest Mango

      Girl,

      What kind of struggle is this that you have to make your presence felt with all this. I mean, shouldn’t this be basic?

    • Wild Cougar

      No.

    • Rewind

      I’ll take a comforter, good sheets, and a pillow case. Anything past that is punishable by death…from 30 pillows.
