Face it: You can’t live off bathroom sink-fulls of instant ramen forever. Plus, nothing impresses a woman like a well-done home-cooked meal. We’re not talking buttered noodles, either — step up your game with something fancy. Anything French! (Or if you need to start with the basics, here’s “Gourmet Dorm Food For The Laziest Of Chefs” and “How To Cook The Top 5 Manliest Soups.”)
Better not pat yourself on the back for that amazing meal too quickly — you’ve still gotta clean up, pal. Because if the safest sex is had through abstinence, there’s no contraceptive like old, crusty dishes piled in that bathroom sink where you make your ramen.
Don’t let the toilet give you sh*t when last night’s burrito comes back to haunt you. Every man should own a plunger and drain snake and know how to use ‘em to unclog a stubborn pipe or — God help you — toilet. This is one of the manliest skills you can have, and will save you enough money (versus calling a plumber) to buy a month’s worth of burritos.
