During our daily sweep of Reddit to see if there was any funny stuff we could 'borrow' for this website – what? They all do it, believe me – we came across this intriguing 'ask Reddit' question: 'Girls: what are some of the things you look for when you vist a guy's place for the first time?'

We've written before about the things women notice about how you dress and the things no one man should ever have in his bedroom, but we've never put those two things together to cover the make-or-break moment when you first invite a woman round to your house.

So thanks, Reddit, for shining a light on this valuable information for us. Below are some of the best / funniest answers, but to read them all, you really need to visit Reddit. Honestly, Reddit is very good. It's worth checking, every day. Reddit.


"Whether his house smells good or not. I went to a guy's house once and he kept his cat's litterbox in his bedroom, next to his bed. The smell was awful. I could not focus on anything else but the stench of urine, feces, and cat litter. Your house doesn't have to smell like roses but as long as it doesn't smell like cat shit or anything, it's probably fine."

"Cleanliness and organisation. Doesn't have to be perfect, but there better not be shit streaks in your toilet bowl or no paper on the roll."

"Dated a guy who had an 11 x 14 photo of HIMSELF just at the entrance. Not his family with him too, just himself. That was a little off-putting."

"Bathrooms should have toilet paper, hand soap, hand towel (please don't make me use your damp bath towel), and a trash can. Bed should have clean sheets, although I wouldn't care if the bed was made. A clean water glass in a reasonably easy to find location would be nice too."

"Pets. I love your pets, guys, but you have to warn me first so I can pop some Benadryl and keep things going."

"PLANTS. Like you're responsible enough to keep that succulent alive? Panties gone.
Lighting... florescent bulbs in your desk lamp probably arent getting anyone in the mood.
Clean... it's a bachelor pad not a frat house. If your room is clean I'd be alot more willing to get bet your hygienic in other ways.
Comfy bed. Girls are like flies to a bed with a plethora of pillows.
No visible signs of other girl stuff... Bobby pins, earring backs, long blonde hairs in your bed.... you know the usual territory marking items."

"What about an actual bed frame instead of just a mattress? What about having a stocked kitchen? I'm not talking about food, but cookware or utensils that aren't plastic or paper."

"I go by smell. If it smells weird I will not sit on the couch or eat the food and I will wash my hands like I have OCD once I leave. I don't care if it looks clean. If it doesn't smell clean too I'm out."
