There's a lot we don't know about women. Where do they hibernate? How do they keep warm in the winter? When they shed their skin can you make a belt out of it?

Oh, excuse me, I seem to have left open my copy of the Animal Encyclopedia.

There is a bit of a learning curve when you enter into a long-term relationship with a woman, and these men were quick to share their most insightful gains.


Reddit user, Foolu, wanted to know what you now know and can never forget when they asked:

"Guys of Reddit, what is something you learned about girls after getting into a relationship?"

What happens in the bathroom stays in the bathroom, unless the internet is involved. Then by all means let us know.

Get The Hanger

"Hair. It gets f-cking everywhere"

justfukinwitchu

"With a wife and a teenage daughter, I could stuff a pillow with all of the hair I pull out of the shower pipes after they've got blocked again."

Warehouse Pricing Is Critical To Survival

"You get through 4 times as much bathroom tissue."

Scallywagstv2

"My dad used to complain about the amount of toilet paper used and we were under strict instructions it was one sheet per toilet trip. Like you expect 3 woman in one house to use one strip of cheap toilet paper every time we go toilet? Ha! Even mum tried to tell him he was being ridiculous."

Only Way To Purify Your Soul

"They shower with lava. At least thats what the water temperature felt like."

Kooky-Experience-923

"Absolutely, the closest temperature to hell is the best to destress in"

Is your house ready for your partner to move in? No?

Too bad. It's happening, and what you see will never be the same again.

Never Enough Hanging Solutions

"You don’t have enough hangers"

Sh-tbashGod

"This one got me lol. I had a cloth bag absolutely full of hangers laying my dresser for years. A f-ckton of them just accumulated over time I guess. Anyway I had planned to eventually throw them out but forgot about them. Fast forward to about a month ago when my girlfriend is moving in. It took time for me to realize the situation when she said "I'm gonna need more hangers."

Costs A Lot To Look This Fabulous

"Make up is expensive as f-ck"

sheepboi13

"Bras too. I thought just the higher end ones would be expensive, but assumed the day to day ones costs much less than they do."

TheRetroVideogamers

Like Magic

"Bobbypins are magical items that will materialize out of thin air"

linksflame

"And disappear just as suddenly"

This is the really crucial stuff, the bits you should always keep at the forefront of your mind.

Speak Your Mind Always

"COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO EVERYTHING. Seriously, if there's an unanswered question, f-cking mention it and get the answer. Neither men nor women are mind readers. So many things can be avoided by just talking with the other one in the relationship."

"Always assume ignorance over malice. Chances are whatever happened it's because of assumptions made and not because one was trying to actively hurt/annoy the other."

"The only dumb question is the one you don't ask."

You Are Bespoken To Them

"You have to teach someone how to be a good lover to you."

"People don’t magically know how to meet your needs. And they certainly can’t read your mind."

RedditorChristopher

"Basically communication is key. This can be said about every single relationship though, not only about girls specifically"

AhhCaffeine

Just, Absolutely Sucks

"Periods really f-cking suck"

deuslapis

"You ain’t lying. Spend 1/4 of your life trying to save yourself from bleeding and cramping to death to have some old man politician tell you what you can and can’t do with your body... meanwhile, they have never had to deal with a single cycle."

purple_lassy

"What might be a really small thing for me to give her (a gesture, compliment, smile, etc.) can mean a whole lot to her."

heathos33

"This is so underrated. I'm in a new relationship and I know my bf cares for me in his own way but I would give ANYTHING for a few compliments here and there."

AgentTex

"Tell them that. Not that you want one right now, but that you appreciate hearing his feelings about you here and there."

"Communication is the only way to a positive path."

June is a happy and exciting month for the LGBTQ+ community, being Pride Month.

Where people can proudly celebrate who they are and who they love.

And the crowds at these events seem to only grow bigger every year, as more and more LGBTQ+ allies also partake in the celebration.

Some of these allies might be late to the party, as it were, owing to the fact that they once held homophobic views, and only recently became more educated and changed their minds.

Redditor aestheticbear was curious what exactly it was that led former homophobes to change their previous views, leading them to ask:

"Former homophobic people of Reddit: what happened that made you stop being homophobic?"

Everyone has unusual phobias.

Things which they simply can't bear the sight of, and are forced to turn away when they find themselves in the presence of it.

More often than not, these things are usually habits or behaviors which one normally wouldn't do in polite society.

But, have you ever been repulsed by something that the majority of people might consider "normal"?

Something that's just an everyday occurrence in life?

Redditor Allthelights011 was curious to learn what "normal" things fellow Reddit users were disgusted by, leading them to ask:

"What’s a completely normal thing you find disgusting?"

People Break Down The Best 'Don't Knock It Until You Try It' Experiences

Chances are, you've been told to try new things ever since you were a little kid. I know I was.

Sometimes, certain activities or experiences seem crazy, and you don't even want to give them a chance.

This could be true of some things. For example, there is no reason to ingest tide pods.

Sometimes an activity or experience that seems crazy only seems that way because you haven't tried it yet.

I thought nothing good could come of mixing buttery popcorn with Swedish Fish, but now it's my favorite snack!

Redditor TheUnthinkableVids wanted to know about other things that seem crazy, but should be given a chance.

He asked:

"What’s a “don’t knock it till you try it” experience that you would weirdly recommend?"
