While assessing a man’s character solely on his appearance can be deceptive, his living space often offers valuable insights into his personality and lifestyle.

A user asked the forum, Ladies, what are some things in a guy’s apartment that set off red flags? Here are the common responses.

“His pet rat is free to roam the dining table.

I’m fine with rodents, but not where you make food. The three 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.”

“Nothing like a good ole dirty house thread to motivate me to clean when I get home.”

“Not a lady, but me & gf slept one night in a borrowed apartment of this single guy while on a trip. He has a sort of shrine with some 3D-printed statues from 20cm to 1m of himself. I mean, it was kind of a small church of him.”

“Crispy socks.”

“Plates and/or silverware crusted with old food.

Bonus points if they’re plastic.

Extra bonus points if they’re in the bedroom.

Extra bonus points if they’re in the sink with the dishwasher empty.”

“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 the whole living area in view. Didn’t know him very well and didn’t fully trust the camera was off. Red flag.”

“No cleaning supplies. 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. Lots more, but I can’t think of all of them right now.”

“Lots of pictures of his ex.”

“I once dated a guy who had a six-inch marijuana plant growing from his damply disgusting bathroom carpet. It wasn’t so much the weed that put me off; it was that he had shag carpeting in the bathroom.”

“Probably all the KY Jelly bottles that my former guy friend had strewn around his apartment. One in the kitchen, one in the living room, one in the bathroom…. I lost count. That night he confessed, he had feelings for me, but I didn’t feel the same way. Things got pretty awkward, and I haven’t talked to him since.”

“No soap in the bathroom to wash your hands.”

“Dirty guest bathroom. If there are stains on the toilet or there’s like eight years of bad stains and filth ringing the bowl, Houston, we’ve got a filthy person. Also, if there’s paper towel instead of toilet paper.”

“Sheets that smell and look dirty.

No soap at the bathroom sink.

Skid marks

Clear evidence that he eats straight out of the pot or pan. Edit- eating out of the pot, ok, efficient. My true objection was that there were always multiple pots with food left lying around his place. Accidentally stepping into a pan of cold pasta is never an experience I want to repeat.

Sink full of dishes growing their own life forms.

Huge gaming computer with trash all around it, literally thrown on the ground and never dealt with.

Soap scum in the shower is so thick you can run a nail through it to the tiling.

This is all one guy. I should have noped out faster, but I was ignorant of men being decent creatures. Too- I was 19.”

“He has much more stuff than he can realistically afford to own. And I don’t just mean unmanageable debt. Let’s say he has no debts, but he’s consistently vague or dodgy about what he does for a living. “I’m into imports.” FLEE.”
