Recently I’ve moved into a house with not one, but three guys! Before I moved in I had no clue who I was moving in with, let alone that I would be the only girl in the house. I have to admit I was a bit worried at first as to how I would fit into the dynamic of the house, but after a few months here I’m finally settling in and we now joke it’s a bit like the house in New Girl.
At some point, you will end up with a house pet. In our case it was a bird that fell in some oil. We named him slick, we washed him, we tried and failed to feed him. He had a day of love and affection and when we finally decided it wasn’t a great idea to care for a wild bird we sent him on his way much to the delight of his parents who looked as though they had been searching for him all day.
Food, glorious food…
When they say lets get some food, they don’t mean from a cafe. They mean from a van in a lay by on the side of a busy road.
Nerf gun wars are no joke.
One beer never actually means one beer.
Luckily for me, I don’t drink alcohol, but when the guys say “lets go out for a beer” it rarely translates into just one beer, so you’d better be ready for a late one.
These boys are not Gok Wan
Don’t even bother asking for outfit advice. Ever. You have been warned.
Don’t start a war you’re not prepared to finish
Tickle wars, prank wars, play fights. If you’re not prepared for the repercussions, its best not to them start them; If you’re happy to be squashed under a pile of three grown men tickling you to death, then by all means, go for it.
When mother nature comes knocking once a month…
You’d better believe the boys have got your back. They’ll pretty much provide you with anything to avoid a no chocolate, crazy eyed, bawling monster that they don’t understand.
There are times when you will realise, you just arent “One of the lads”
In our house they built a makeshift bar in our garage and I am not a DIY kinda girl. In these circumstances its ok to sit back, relax and watch them do all the hard work, whilst you sit back and plan out how to make the place look awesome.
You’re doing what?!
Men still are from Mars and women are still from Venus, so don’t be surprised if you still find yourself asking WTF?! when they do some pretty weird things.
You sexy thing.
You’ll spend approximately one week trying to look your bad ass sexy self every time you bump into one of them on the stairs, until that one time you decide to head downstairs in your Penguin pjs, cradling a tub of Ben&Jerry’s covered in your favourite face mask, when you realise that, guess what? They don’t even care! Let your normal routine resume.
They might even surprise you
Sometimes, guys get a bad rep, but I have to admit that after living here for a few months I couldn’t have been more wrong. After moving in post bad break up I was ready to hate all men and could not have thought of anything worse than living with three of them, but I have to admit how wrong I was. These last few months have been some of the funniest and as someone who can sometimes be a little uptight, the guys have shown me its ok to have a bit of fun sometimes and at the end of it all, you’ve all got each others backs.
Until Next Time
