There are a few things men must get rid of before their new ladies will feel comfortable in their newly shared pad. Stuff like...
1. The Ex's toiletries
We all know that specialty shave gel and box of tampons isn't yours. If you expect your new woman to use them, however "new" they seem, you are completely mistaken.
2. The beer paraphernalia
Anything that was "bought" or rather "give to you" at the pub is not real decor. So take the mardi gras beads off the lamp shade already.
3. The roommate
She, will never be happy living in the "guys pad" so you're going to have to ditch your 30-something roommate, no matter how long you dudes have lived together.
4. The little black book
Whether its tiny, huge, or bound like webster's dictionary, those numbers must go right in the trash with "single you."
5. The GI Joes and Comic books
Yeah, yeah, they're worth money... but if you want to live with your woman, it's finally time to trade in your toys for an Ebay account.
6. The Band posters
Unless they're framed, they have to go. Nothing says "bachelor" like a ripped at the edges Def Leopard tribute.
7. The butcher shop
If your fridge is full of burgers, dogs, and steaks and nothing else, it may be time to trade your meat cooler in for a real fridge. You know, one with all the food groups and maybe a little soda to go with your fine array of beers.
8. The "sex drawer"
Unless they are things you to bought together, you may want to clear out that drawer for some of her things... or you may risk being asked the question of "Honey, who bought you that whip?"
Give me 9 and 10...
What did YOU have to get rid of or make your man throw out before you took the plunge and shared a home?
