Throughout our lives we learn to live with things - be it dodgy ankles, tedious commutes or even more tedious lockdown restrictions.
But it is learning to live with other people which can be the most eye-opening challenge. For many, it's when they move in with their partner that they find out so much about both the opposite sex and themselves.
On Reddit, men are opening up about the various lessons they've learned since living with a woman. Many of these learnings are hair-based.
One bloke said: "Apparently showering and washing your hair are separate events."
Another said: "It actually boggles the mind that someone can lose that much hair and not be bald."
A third added: "I have routinely found strands of hair wrapped around my penis when I go to pee. It is beyond anything I've ever seen."
Indeed, one man claimed the moulting powers of women help them to create a mess in next to no time - but they can also make a place spotless in a flash.
He said: "Women are both simultaneously messier and cleaner than men. It's bizarre how messy rooms can get with them and how quickly they can turn it around and make it clean!
"Also random hairs everywhere, and makeup stains that appear.
"They also have a really weird obsession with glass containers or jars."
Another commented: "I learned that the bathroom can smell like soap and flowers and coconut instead of like pee."
This cleaning prowess has led to a complete domestic overhaul for many men.
"I load the dishwasher so inefficiently, I'm no longer allowed to load it at all," one commented.
Another said: "An innocent cleaning excursion in the right circumstances will lead to a full-on reorganisation of all the dang furniture in the house, if you're not careful."
The scarcity of 'good bras' has also been observed by menfolk.
One guy explained: "There is only one and part of your duty as a man is to protect The Good Bra. If you are doing laundry, you must take the greatest of precautions to make sure it is properly cleaned, dried, and stored. God forbid The Good Bra ever turn up missing or in the wrong drawer.
"Ladies, why is there only one GOOD BRA?"
Clearly, the discourse amused onlooking women - though they wouldn't reveal why there is only one good bra.
One woman wrote: "I'm loving reading these as a female.
"So entertaining and interesting, feels like I'm reading research papers about a strange animal, haha."
