Men and women are revealing the stark differences between their sides of the bed, with ladies showing off immaculate nightstands decorated with candles and plants — and guy showing the section of the floor where they keep their empty bottles and weapons.
The images clearly struck a chord with other Twitter users, who responded with their own very similar comparisons.
Comparisons: Twitter user Hanny Styles went viral for a set of photos of both sides of the bed she shares with her boyfriend
Pretty: Her side of the bed that’s topped with several things: an alarm clock, a candle, lotion, artwork, and the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s autobiography
His side: Her boyfriend’s side, meanwhile, has no nightstand at all, just a messy floor where he keeps a charger, a small bottle of lube, an empty Gatorade bottle, and a baseball bat
Hanny’s tweet, which has earned over 649,000 likes, shows a neat nightstand on her side of the bed that’s topped decoratively with several things: an alarm clock, a candle, lotion, artwork, and the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s autobiography.
Her boyfriend’s side, meanwhile, hardly seems to be in the same room. He has no nightstand at all, but just s bare, messy floor where he keeps a charger, a small bottle of lube, an empty Gatorade bottle, and a baseball bat leaning against the wall, ready to be grabbed in case of a home intruder.
Henny’s tweet took off, and soon other Twitter users were sharing their own comparisons.
Another response had a similar comparison, with a candle and photos on a nightstand on the the woman’s side and a water bottle, power strip, and baseball bat on the man’s side.
One Twitter user named Carly showed her side with artwork, a large plant, a book, and a box of tissues, while her boyfriend had just a lamp and a fan.
Us too! Several other women have shared their own similar comparisons
Another user named Rachel showed her side with a framed photo, plants, and a lamp, and her boyfriend’s side with a water bottle on top, various junk littering the inside, and a mess on the floor.
One more user showed that her side had a basket of baby things, while his has a bottle of hard liquor, a gun, and — inexplicably — a skull.
A surprising number of men appear to not have nightstands at all, even though their partners do.
While the thread began with women rolling their eyes at men’s messes, men soon joined in the fun, poking fun at themselves with pictures of their own beds.
Empty bottles were a favorite prop, as were video game controllers, lube, and water bottles.
They know! Even men have joined in the fun with images of their own sides of the bed
Some women have expressed surprise that so many men seem to keep baseball bats near their beds.
‘Dudes love the baseball bat by the bed. I personally have pepper spray and my pink taser in my bedside table drawer,’ wrote one.
‘Wait so.. I’m not American so genuine question: is it common for Americans to have intruders in your house at night or why is everyone heavily armed? Cause I don’t know a single person who has been attacked in their own home at night,’ wrote another.
‘So the baseball bat is universal?’ asked a third.
To this question, the original poster replied: ‘It’s actually for turning off the light so he doesn’t have to get up’
Really? Some women have expressed surprise that so many men seem to keep baseball bats near their beds
