Truth About Men (And Relationships)
I recently saw a card on here that inspired me to write this card.
While I'm sure women of all ages and walks of life have long learned (or known), that the difference between men and boys comes down to respect, love, listening, and initiative, among a million other things, I am here to share a little-known secret to that QUESTION IN YOUR MIND: IS THIS RELATIONSHIP WORKING/GOING TO WORK/WORTH SAVING?
Here's what you do: You march into his apartment/house/cardboard hideout and head straight to the kitchen sink. What you find there is the answer to all you ever needed to know.


1. And there are dirty dishes piled all over--it's over. He can't even muscle some minor elbo grease to let the damn dishwasher do the hard part?!?!?!?! He's so done. Goodbye.
2. The dishwasher is full of CLEAN DISHES and the sink has dirty dishes...keep an eye on him. He's sneaky. The type of guy that knows how to do the right thing, often does, but falls into deep depravity if left unchecked.
3. The dishes in the sink are rinsed and orderly, but not "clean," this guy is a KEEPER!!!!!


1. This dude's either old-school, which is going to make for a very gender-compartmentalized relationship, or he's extremely frugal. Either is fine, just know what you're getting into if he FLATLY REFUSES TO GET A DISHWASHER!
2. The dishes in the sink are a mess--ditch him. He's worthless.
3. The sink is clean. You can see the bottom to the drain. The counter is clutter-free. Before you jump for joy, does he cook or eat?! Make sure he's not a psychopath, then proceed with caution.
4. He made a pbj sandwich, it's sitting on a plate and the knife he used to spread the peanut butter is in the sink, wiped clean from its residue, waiting to be "cleaned," COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, THIS AINT NO BOY HERE. THIS IS A MAN! MARRY HIM!

What if he never uses any dishes and uses all plastic silverware because 'time is our most valuable resource'?? Not saying it's me....but it might be...

Lolololol 馃槀馃榿馃榾 @edwardcw my question for "that person" would be, Why plastic? it's wasteful as is costs more money to buy and it's an unnecessary use /need for plastic, which takes forever to decompose

@marshallegar Well hypothetically, this person immediately rinses upon use and stores in cupboard. Once they get too too dirty, it's trash. That person never spends time doing dishes and the kitchen is always clean! Sounds like a good idea ;) Im just not sure if many females would approve...
