If you spend enough time with somebody, you’re bound to pick up some of their habits. So it’s no surprise that, when a woman hasn’t seen her friends for a few months, and she’s been living with her boo, her friends tell her that she’s changed. She’s talking differently. She’s eating foods she used to shy away from. She even smells different. That’s just the boo rubbing off on her. And you know what? We could all benefit from picking up a few guy habits. Considering that anxiety, bowel issues and depression are more prominent in women, men are obviously doing something right. We do have to be careful, of course, because men have different needs—they don’t crave as much social activity as women do because their hormones aren’t wired that way, and they can somehow handle way more bacon. Okay that second one I made up, but it’s sort of true. Here are 18 funny habits women pick up from men.

Sitting in your workout clothes

Men will come home from the gym and just crash on the couch for hours—no shower. Women shouldn’t really do that since it can lead to a urinary tract infection, but boy is it tempting. So, we may start to do it, too.

Scratching your pubes

Why pretend those things aren’t scratching anymore? He’s over there going to town on his. And plus, the only reason ours scratch is that we shave them for men.

Adjusting your thong

Okay so men don’t wear thongs, but they are very open about adjusting their underwear. In fact, they adjust their scrotum in public. So, if you live with your boo, you’ve probably started picking at your thong mid-dinner.

Eating 2 enormous meals a day

Women are usually better at having regular meals, whereas men will forget to eat, and just gorge twice a day. It’s certainly a time-saving method, and a lot of women pick it up.

Comeback documentaries

Men love a good comeback documentary—like one about a pro wrestler who became a drug addict and is trying to get back in the game. And eventually, women realize that those documentaries…are kind of awesome!

Forgetting about your nails

I don’t know why, but somehow, when we live with men, we pick up their habit of doing the minimal amount of work on our nails. We just trim them when they’ve become claws.

Lying to get out of events

Men don’t feel the same drive as women to be at the “cool” events. They’ll lie about having the flu or an early meeting to skip them. And when you live with a man, you will too.

Using each other as an excuse

Your partner used to say that you were the reason he couldn’t make it out. Now you’ll say that he’s the reason you can’t make it out.

Wearing looser clothes

Forget tight yoga pants. Men hang out in these super loose, draw string pants, and they just feel incredible. They have pockets. They’re fleece-lined. You could live in those things!

Wearing tighty whities

Tighty whities are just as adorable on women as they are on men. Which is why, when you live with your boo, you might start dawning his tighty whities and a bikini top around the house on a hot day. What?

Pleasing yourself

Men are so open about their business. When you live with a guy, he will probably just say, “I’m going to jack off I’ll be back in ten.” And you’ll start to realize how relaxed and happy he is after…so you’ll get more into the activity, too.

Getting more takeout

Women tend to be more into making meals at home than men, who like to buy sandwiches and ready-made-sushi at the grocery store. And while it’s not really a money saver, women who live with men begin to realize that sometimes it’s such a time saver, that it saves the night.

Emptying out the fridge

On that note, have you looked in a guy’s fridge recently? Most male fridges contain beer, condiments and maybe leftovers from a restaurant. When you live with a man, your fridge will start to look like that, too. You’ll stop buying groceries as if you have a family of six, “Just in case.”

Working out hard, then taking a break

Women tend to favor frequent but moderate exercise, where men will just do an intense, heart-pounding half hour in the gym, four days a week. It’s common to pick up your partner’s workout routine when you live together, and you may find you like this efficient way of exercising.

Drinking way more

You may have noticed that men will just keeeep drinking, as if it’s a sport, long after they’re drunk. You may start to do that, too. Be careful!

Noticing cars

You can’t help it. He talks about cars all of the time. He has a truck, and he points out every truck you pass. Now you just notice them, too. It’s like when you really want a puppy, and you can sense a dog four blocks away.

Adult movies

Men are pretty open about watching them so if you live with a guy, you may begin to feel less taboo about adult movies too. Explore it more and talk about it with your boo.

Just soap

A lot of men don’t mess with a separate face wash and body wash. In fact, they don’t know what brand of soap they use. They just buy the first bar of soap they find at the store and use it until it’s gone. You might find this pretty liberating, too.
