In the not-too-distant future, single people may actually be able to take dates back to their house, and we're sure they'll want to make the best impression possible, right?
Well, so you're ahead of the game, the Reddit group u/Slicedbready have been sharing some of the things women have found in guys' houses that makes them unlikely to ever go there again. Some of these are pretty obvious – pictures of your ex are an absolute no-no – while others are less so – who knew potential partners were searching your house for cleaning supplies?
We've collected some of the best – or worst – examples, so you don't make the same mistake these guys did.
"His Pet Rat Free to Roam the Dining Table"
"I'm fine with rodents, but not where you make food," wrote u/shouldprobablylisten. "The 3 other rats in the freezer, waiting for the fourth and lone survivor to kick it so they could all be cremated together, was a line well crossed however."
A Shrine Complete with 3D Printed Statues of Him
"Not a lady but me and my girlfriend slept one night in a borrowed apartment of this single guy while on trip. He had a sort of shrine with some 3D printed statues, from 20cm to 1m, of himself. I mean, it was kind a small church of him," says u/PurpleCat14.
Plates And/Or Silverware Crusted with Old Food
"Bonus points if they're plastic. Extra bonus points if they're in the bedroom. Extra extra bonus points if they're in the sink with the dishwasher empty," wrote u/meakcpark.
A Security Camera on the Wall That Had the Bed and Whole Living Area in View
"Once went on a date with a guy. Went back to his studio apartment and there was a 'security' camera on the wall that had the bed and whole living area in view. Didn’t know him very well, didn’t fully trust the camera was off. Red flag," explains u/Mooneater13.
"No Cleaning Supplies."
According to u/poorcupid "No toilet cleaner, dish soap, dish rack, mop, broom, vacuum, dirty dishes in the sink (like a pile that hasn't been done in a while), no trash bag in the trash can," is a red flag.
"Using a Daily Calendar of Naked Girls as Toilet Paper."
This would be painful, no?
"Lots of Pictures of His Ex."
Move on, mate. Move on.
