What bachelor apartments look like in different countries of the worldBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/what-bachelor-apartments-look-like-in-different-countries-of-the-world
Many women think that men are pretty sloppy. Of course, because they usually pee in the bushes, constantly scratch the crotch and happily cover any free surface with beard hair, trimmed toenails from toes, wet towels and tobacco. And in general, they behave extremely carelessly. It's just awful, you can't say otherwise.
But this is all a conversation about women's perception, about how men behave next to women. But do single men live so untidily and uncleanly in different countries of the world? Let's find out.
Ike, 25, Essex (UK)
How often do you clean up your apartment? Once a week, if the mood is right. But more often once every two weeks.
It's a hell of a mess, do you have any excuse? Honestly, no, but I don't care. This is my space. If I don't want to clean, I won't.
What is your record for delaying washing dishes? In fact, one day I really dragged it out, and some unknown shit started up in my kitchen. She even talked to me.
How long have you been living in this apartment and how often do you clean up here? I've been living here since the 1980s, this is my family's apartment. I clean every day.
And what is the mosaic in the bathroom? White and blue are the colors of Lazio, my favorite football club.
What does your girlfriend think about your apartment? She says the apartment is pretty dirty.
Is that your dog? Yes, Lafo is a very demanding dog. He's 11, and he's like a son to me. His full name is General Lafayette.
Why do you sleep on the floor and not in your bunk bed? Bunk beds are not very good at all — neither for sleeping, nor for doing other things there. I mostly use my bunk bed to hang a hammock. I actually cleaned up a bit before you came.
Did you have pets? Mostly slugs.
Is this the first house you live in alone? No, it's already the fifth.
Do your parents come to visit you? No. My current girlfriend doesn't show much desire to come here either.
You don't have a kitchen table. Where are you eating? In a cafe. I never cook or eat at home, I always buy food with me. There's only water, juice and yogurt in my fridge.
Why are there so many bicycles in the apartment? I live here for free because the house belongs to my family. My aunt lives on the floor below, and my grandmother is sewing in the basement.
How often do you stay in your apartment? In different ways, two or three times a week. The rest of the time I live with my father.
How do the guests react to all this mess? Honestly, I don't care.
Living alone in Athens: what is it like? That's cool. I dance naked while washing dishes.
How often do you clean up? I clean up every couple of days. I arrange general cleaning every two weeks.
What is your record for postponing cleaning in an apartment? A month or so. My neighbor was away, and I didn't want to clean the house myself.
Do your parents ever come to visit you? Yes, often, and usually they come without warning. It's a little infuriating.
Who would you never open the door to? Neighbors. Everyone else is welcome in my house.
Why did you decide to have cats? Well, I like cats, I've had them since I was a kid. Cookie, one of the cats, needed a home, and I took care of him. After that, when I moved into a small apartment with a small balcony, it became obvious that he needed a brother, so I decided to get another one.
Who is this lady on the fridge? This is my wife. I'm kidding, of course. This is some kind of photo that my father found somewhere and hung on the refrigerator while I was not at home. I see no reason to remove it from there.
How much time do you spend in your apartment? Well, it happens in different ways. Most of the time I'm just here to take a shower, change clothes and sleep. At the end of the month, when my salary is coming to an end, I spend a lot of time with my loved ones.
Have you ever invited your parents to visit? Yes, of course, they even have keys, but they come very rarely.
How many people live with you? There are five of us now. The house is quite large, there are three floors and even has its own garden.
