We're learning all our lives. But some things and experiences teach us more than others.

A month ago, Reddit user Artudetan posted a question on r/AskMen that read, "What did you not know or realize until after living with a woman?" Turns out, a lot!

From "the good bra" to doing the dishes, the post has already received over 14,000 answers and judging from them, getting a roommate can be quite educational!

Living-With-Woman-Draft Fine, I'll say it.

I always thought that pads operated like Band-aids 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.

Living-With-Woman-Draft 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 a 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.

Living-With-Woman-Draft 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.

Ladies, why is there only one GOOD BRA?

Yes. Yes, there is. The one and only! ♡ Because, a product, to be mass-produced, it needs to be built within certain norms and patterns, but each woman has different breasts. As a result, it's difficult to find the perfect one, but once you do find it, it becomes precioussssss. Not to mention, these things aren't cheap either. (Waiting for replies of the ladies whose boobs need no support. Respect to you, sisters, but see... just because I don't need braces, I'm not protesting against the dentist industry.)

The challenge is that you don't know if the bra is going to be the one when you purchase it, only time will tell. You can purchase 5 perfectly fitting bras, but only one of them is the one. By the time you realize which one it is and go back to the bra store the same style is no longer available. That's when the one you have becomes extra precious. And wow, I'm a bra wearer for over 20 years and only now I realize that this theory of only one good bra is true and the real challenge in life! Now I can also remember many of my best bras from past years, it's sad that they age so soon.

We have a washing machine with no agitator (largely because of bras). I almost never put loads into the washer (she insists that's her job), I suspect because of the bra. Not sure. However, I do often take loads OUT of the washer and put them into the dryer. There is a little clothes line above the washing machine. It's just for the bras. Do not put any bra into the dryer (excepting the sports bras) in my house, that's a serious crime!

Because finding a good bra is like finding a unicorn. Bras are these tight, strappy things that have the potential to gouge and leave friction burns or be just a bit off in fit where we're constantly aware of them all day. They're the first thing we can't wait to rip off when we get home, even with the comfortable ones. And no woman should ever let anyone else wash them, that should be on her to keep in the condition she needs it to be.

I am petite (5'1") and ridiculously over endowed, so my bras have always been expensive because you can't buy them off the rack. Talking E-G size cups here. You have to go a plus size retailer or order online, plus you seldom get the option of trying on different styles. So my bras run $50-85 USD and that's when they're ON SALE. So yeah, my resources are limited and I can buy 2 per year maximum. ALL my bras are my good bra.

Bras are very expensive and just trying on a bra is not a good indication on whether it is a good or bad bra. It may look and feel like it fits all the right places but when you wear it for a whole day or so you realise it's not as good as you thought it would be.

why only one 'good bra'? because breasts are not mass produced to be the same for all women. because a 'good' bra can start at $40+ depending on the maker. because such a cost provides good support and protection (yes, protection). because it is easier to maintain and control junkyard dogs than two mammary glands that have to be taken care of for 12 to 18 hours a day while being physically comfortable for such a feat. other bras can be cheaper but not only don't they maintain their support but will fall apart fast regardless of treatment. a good bra will last a couple of years with care.

When you’re done showering, you’re supposed to stay on the bath mat while you dry off, not walk around the apartment

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.

I do leave stuff on the stairs, but that's for whoever goes up first to bring along (and yes, that definitely includes myself)

Living-With-Woman-Draft Women are both simultaneously messier and cleaner than men. It’s bizarre how messy rooms can get with them and how quickly they can turn it around and make it clean!

You do this so you don't need to unclog your shower weekly. But you don't leave it on the wall, it should be binned before you leave the bathroom

Living-With-Woman-Draft When long, loose head hairs wash off in the shower, it's common practice to stick them to the wall rather than let them collect in the drain.

If she forgets to remove them afterwards, it can be very confusing for the next person in the shower. Why are there a bunch of individual strands of hair deliberately stuck to the wall?
