You can learn a lot about a person based on what they have in their refrigerator. A guy with beer nuts and, well, beer stocked in his fridge probably isn’t the most health-conscious man out there. while lots of fruits and vegetables and protein-filled items may be a sign of a person that keeps in shape. Traditionally, guys don’t go snooping around in other peoples’ fridges trying to gain intel. If anything, they’re looking for a beer. Their female counterparts, on the other hand, are always collecting data. You’d be surprised what they can assess about you based on what you have in your fridge. Here are five things in your fridge and what they say to your girlfriend.
Peanut butter and jelly. Although a great snack for fourth-graders, it doesn’t mean the same thing when a grown man has peanut butter and jelly in his fridge, especially if that grown man has no fourth-graders of his own. To a woman, peanut butter and jelly is an indication of a guy that really doesn’t spend too much time shopping for food. To her, if peanut butter and jelly is the centerpiece of your refrigerator, maybe it’s because you’re broke, or maybe it’s because you’re always on the move. Either way, “PB and J” lasts forever and will get you full in a pinch. Oh, and it’s cheap.
Beer. Most men have beer in their fridges. That’s fine. But if you have nothing but beer and an accompanying beer belly, your girlfriend’s obviously going to think that you’re not the healthiest fellow in town. No fruits, no nuts, no vegetables? Just beer. Yeah, if she starts pushing you to join a gym and eat right, you’ll know why.
TV dinners. If your freezer is stockpiled with frozen, prepackaged meals, she’s going to think you don’t know how to cook. When a guy doesn’t have raw meats, certain vegetables, and spices, it looks as if he’s a dunce in the kitchen. Now add the fact that all you have is peanut butter and jelly and beer in the fridge; she’s not going to trust you to cook for her. Better yet, she’s not even going to entertain the notion that you’d offer to cook for her.
Old take out. It doesn’t matter if it’s Chinese or pizza. If it’s old, and there’s a lot of it, it’s not a good sign to your girlfriend. You’ll appear to be a little too bachelor. You’ll want to get yourself slightly more domesticated. Next time you’re at your lady’s house, check out her fridge. It’s probably much more organized than yours. She’s got her basic food groups accounted for. She may have some take out, but it will certainly not make up the majority of the fridge-dwelling vittles.
Odd stains. They’ll probably range from green to brown to black. They’ll be screaming to your girlfriend about your lack of cleanliness. Your best bet is to grab some warm water and soap, maybe even a little bleach, and clean your fridge out. If your fridge is going to be empty, at least it can be clean.
