This is exactly what she's thinking the first time she stays over.
We asked a few real women to share what they notice when they sleep over a guy's place for the first time. Here are the things they're really judging you on when they stay over.
- How "Legit" Your Bed Is "It's incredible to me how low-maintenance men can be when it comes to what they sleep in every night," says Johana, 26. "When I stay over a guy's place for the first time I'm expecting, at the very least, a bed with an actual box spring, quality mattress and sheets that don't feel like you're sleeping in sandpaper. Everything else I'll let him get away with."
- The State Of Your Bathroom "No one likes scrubbing toilet bowls — but if you know that I'm coming over to your place and you don't put the effort in to scrub that ring around the toilet bowl away? I'm turned off," says Kassie, 28. "Also, we know you pee standing up, but if you're having us over, can you put it down for us?"
- Your Towel Supply "I once dated a guy who owned only one towel... and it smelled moldy," says Sarah, 24. "The first time I came over he showered first and then handed me the used towel to use on myself. Get yourself a fresh set of towels, they're like $20 at Target."
- Relics Of Past Relationships "I had been dating a guy who had just ended a relationship a few months before we met," says Kayla, 25. "The first time I stayed over his place, I was searching his bathroom desperately for more toothpaste. What I ended up finding was a woman's entire overnight bag (he lived alone) that had everything down to a mini hair dryer. Which, on one hand, ended up saving me that morning in terms of getting my hair and face right. But also, major red flag, guys. Do a sweep of your place and make sure there's nothing that another woman left there before you have a new girl over!"
- What's In Your Refrigerator "If your refrigerator is a graveyard of half-eaten takeout containers and a half-empty six-packs, you might want to consider buying a few actual groceries to make it look like you have your life together," says Shana, 27. "You don't have to go to Whole Foods and get fancy and organic, but some milk for coffee and a few fruits and vegetables make it seem like you know how to take care of yourself — and that responsibility won't end up falling on us."
- Whether You Clean Those Hard-To-Reach Spots "We're women, we're detail oriented, we notice everything," says Malika, 26. "That being said, get into those hard to reach but totally visible places when you're cleaning your place before having a girl over — especially in your bathroom and around your toilet. Also, check your toilet paper stock. We're already having anxiety about having to use your bathroom when we're staying over, help us out by at least having the essentials."
- Childhood Keepsakes "There was a guy I dated who had not one but several stuffed animals that he slept with, including the baby blanket he was brought home from the hospital in," says Suzanne, 29. "There is pretty much nothing that screams man-child louder than that. Except maybe a bed shaped like a race car, which, honestly I wouldn't have been surprised to see at that point."
