Check their Fridge

A Dating Guide

Prologue: Winter 1998

We’ve all been there: on a date when we get that first invitation back to their apartment. Considering I made out with Haley in the street on our last date, one thing was certain: tonight I was going to see her topless.

Factoring that in with her preppy looks, her Princeton education and her Jewish background, I guesstimated that I had a 50% chance of sex-sex and a 40% chance of something even more personal to women than sex-sex: oral sex ... Read More

  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don’t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 4 of 4…


Batting clean up is Rachael and Joel.

Crosby, Stills and Nash taught us to “Teach our children well”.  Joel is probably doing just that.  Like our above couples, it’s always fun to see what kind of clues we can pick up from the front of one’s fridge.  The fact that he’s got a Teachers Health Fund calendar on his fridge helps connect the dots.

Can we also guess he’s in real estate?  Sure.  But what’s interesting is there are two different real estate company calendars on there, both from 2014, so I have to assume he can’t work at both.

Now, I can’t say that Rachael works with kids, but she might be a kid at heart.   She has that cute little chameleon and climbing dude on her fridge, which is very sweet.  And with that much milk, she has to come to the harsh realization that she’s no longer 6.

Now, lets put on our detective hats and see what else we can uncover…

Clue

They each have more than 1 beer brand.

Conclusion

They’re both handy hosts.

With more than 1 beer brand, they’re catering to more than one taste.  This is a quality I like to see.

It’s also a good sign that they’re both social, and thus compatible on that front.  Plus, Rachael has a watermelon.  If you’re buying uncut watermelon, the odds are it’s to host peeps at your pad or bring it to a buddy’s for a BBQ.

Clue

They both stock plenty of fruits and veggies

Conclusion

They both have bonable bods.

Nothing says more about our health than our food and drink.  Any trainer will tell you that if you’re eating like shit, all the exercise in the world can only do so much.

In addition to the fruits and veggies, they both stock yogurt and a serious stash of salad dressing.

If someone is not taking of their looks when they’re single, they’ll most likely look even worse when they’re married.  By no means would I say life is easy when you’re single.  But it sure ain’t easier when you’re married with a mortgage and 2 kids.  The window we have to make it to the gym gets tighter and tighter.

Now, I’m not talking about being a size 2 or a size 12.  I’m talking about being healthy.

As for Joel, he’s probably working out as he has Powerade and with only 1 bottle of water, it can’t be his primary water source at home, so I have to assume the bottle is for on the go.

And the promising sign about Rachael’s produce drawer?  There’s a shitload of produce in it.

It’s good to see all you Ausies eating well.  Americans are so fat, half our population can be seen from the Space Station.

Clue

They both have a half-gallon of milk.

Conclusion

They’re both AOK in the strong bones department.  And both big on breakie.

As I see plenty of overlapping foods, with enough to share, it tells me they’re making a place for each other in their lives.

And I’d assume they spend more weekend time at Rachael’s house.  The last time I saw so many eggs, I was watching Chicken Run, and with no other baking ingredients, I have to assume they’re for breakfast.  To fill out the perfect breakie meal, she has bacon, almond milk and fruit.

Clue

They both have relatively inexpensive fridges.

Conclusion

Timing is on their side.

By the looks of their fridges and the brands they buy, they look compatible financially.  Neither one of them are getting laid based off their fridge model (we’re not talking a Sub Zero or Viking here), but they’re a step up from starter models.

Plus, they both spend more for foreign beers, and even though Corona is considered piss in Mexico, they’ve done a brilliant job marketing themselves as a premiere brand around the world.

As I touch on above, timing is so important when it comes to dating.  If they’re in a similar place in their careers and lives, the timing is more conducive for a long-term relationship.

Both also look like they’re renting.  (Or they have to consider firing their interior decorators ;)  This is not a crack on them, or their fridges, these are just not the kind of fridges you’d normally see in owner-occupied homes.

Clue

Both of their fridge pix are fuzzy.

Conclusion

They’re either both are in desperate need of LASIC or will never make a living as a photographer.

Final Formula

I think we can sum up Joel and Rachael with the below dating formula…

J + R < $$$ + > bonable bods + > Pig Pen = 1 CC

Translation…

Joel and Rachael don’t have a ton of money but look solid financially
Both have bonable bods
Both are not neat freaks but are cleaner than Pig Pen

Aussie Cosmo 3


  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 3 of 4…


Our 3rd Couple is Sammi and David.

It’s not a coincidence that Sammi (top) and David’s (bottom) fridges are more grown up and so are they, along with their relationship.   They’ve been dating for almost nine years, are in their upper 20’s and are now engaged.

It is interesting though that after 9 years, they still don’t live together.  Not sure if it’s for geo or personal reasons, but whether for the better or worse, their relationship will change once they start living together.

Now, lets dive into their fridge frontier…

An Orgy of Order

Talk about compatibility, both their fridges are neat, organized and relatively spotless.  (No, David’s is not perfect, but for a straight guy, it’s pretty darn good)  This is a good sign that they’re on top of things in their lives and have their shit together.

Ready to Settle Down

David and Sammi have more upscale fridge models than the other couples and are obviously farther along in their career.

I also like that they both have well stocked fridges, yet still have room in their fridges for someone else.

Sammi comes across as more of a career woman than the other ladies.  She works, yet can still prepare a meal, enjoy a bottle of wine and chill.  Not for budgetary reasons, but as part of her lifestyle.

Yuppies in training

I hope that Dave is moving into her place.  On top of a sexy fridge, great stove and lovely floor tile (holy crap, I sound like my wife), she looks like a homeowner, rather than a renter.   Plus, she has a washer and dryer, which you don’t often see in rentals.

David too is pretty domesticated, as not a lot of dudes have Tupperware.  And compared to the other male fridges, David’s is the most expensive.  Again, it’s not a crack on the other guys, it’s just a sign that David is making more moola.

Sammi and David are also buying name Brands over generic.  Generics have gotten better over the years, but if you can’t afford the extra 86 cents for Heinz Ketchup, move back in with your parents.

When I see all generics in a fridge, it’s most likely they’re pinching pennies in other areas of their lives as well.  No one should waste money, but what’s in our fridge will be in our body.  Some things are not worth scrimping on.

Now, I’m not sure if Sammi’s a teacher, or was at least inspired by hers, but the Teacher magnet on her fridge is some kind of clue.  It’s fun and fascinating how what we put front and center (i.e., on our fridge) provides insight about us…Sammi has a cute Bat Man thingy, Zoe a daily reminder of Martin Luther King.

One Saucy Set

Like the other couples, odds are their birthday suits are a good look for them.

They both have plenty of healthy items in their fridges, including Low Fat Cottage Cheese, Apples, Turkey and Chicken Breast, Salad Veggies, Hommus and Low Fat Yoghurt.

David even has Protein bars to build muscle post workouts.  I can’t say he’s got a 6-Pack like Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise, but I assume his abs are an asset.

He’s also got Mother Revive energy drink for fuel while on the go.   What’s interesting about the brands we buy is they offer clues about who we are.  Every brand has a target demo and a media plan.  So when we see certain brands in a fridge, we get clues from sex to age range, the pubs we read to the shows we watch.

Again, nothing is universal, but throw enough clues together and they start adding up.   Mother Revive’s target demo is male Millennials, which David is a part of.  (I just hope Revive is not adding vardenafil like MosKa)

Love of Sport

Sammi’s clearly a sports fan, a great fit with Dave, who’s obviously an athlete.  The Parramatta Eels are an Australian professional rugby league football club based in the Sydney suburb of Parramatta.

(It’s fun to point out that this shows Sammi’s from Australia and a clue where she might live or is from.  Not sure where Dave lives, but it’s always nice to be geographically desirable ☺)

Boozie Buddies?

I love that Sammi has champagne.  It’s a drink that’s all about spontaneous celebration and romance.   The fact that she also has wine, beer and Chambord in her fridge tell me she’s a keeper.

As I touch on with Gordon, it’s not a deal breaker if David doesn’t drink, but it is a chink in some otherwise stellar armor.  I mean, who the hell wants to drink alone?

I don’t see a sign of any booze in his fridge, but I hope he keeps it elsewhere, or just does his drinking at her pad.   As the man is an active athlete, he could use some beer in this icebox.  He and Sammi need something to drink while watching the Eels.

  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 3 of 4…


Our 3rd Couple is Sammi and David.

It’s not a coincidence that Sammi (top) and David’s (bottom) fridges are more grown up and so are they, along with their relationship.   They’ve been dating for almost nine years, are in their upper 20’s and are now engaged.

It is interesting though that after 9 years, they still don’t live together.  Not sure if it’s for geo or personal reasons, but whether for the better or worse, their relationship will change once they start living together.

Now, lets dive into their fridge frontier…

An Orgy of Order

Talk about compatibility, both their fridges are neat, organized and relatively spotless.  (No, David’s is not perfect, but for a straight guy, it’s pretty darn good)  This is a good sign that they’re on top of things in their lives and have their shit together.

Ready to Settle Down

David and Sammi have more upscale fridge models than the other couples and are obviously farther along in their career.

I also like that they both have well stocked fridges, yet still have room in their fridges for someone else.

Sammi comes across as more of a career woman than the other ladies.  She works, yet can still prepare a meal, enjoy a bottle of wine and chill.  Not for budgetary reasons, but as part of her lifestyle.

Yuppies in training

I hope that Dave is moving into her place.  On top of a sexy fridge, great stove and lovely floor tile (holy crap, I sound like my wife), she looks like a homeowner, rather than a renter.   Plus, she has a washer and dryer, which you don’t often see in rentals.

David too is pretty domesticated, as not a lot of dudes have Tupperware.  And compared to the other male fridges, David’s is the most expensive.  Again, it’s not a crack on the other guys, it’s just a sign that David is making more moola.

Aussie Cosmo 2


  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 2 of 4…


Couple number 2 is Zoe (top 2 fridge pix) and Gordon (bottom 2 fridge pix): both are 21 years old.

Like most couples, I see plenty of compatibility here and a few question marks.  That said, they’ve been together for 4 years so they’re obviously doing something right.

Now, diving into their fridges, here’s what sticks out to me…

Captain Chaos

Gordon and Zoe have this in common: their fridges are shit-shows.  If there’s chaos in one’s fridge, there’s usually chaos in one’s life.

Zoe’s Freezer looks like the epicenter of an earthquake and Gordon’s fridge looks like a dance scene from Slumdog Millionaire.  Now, it’s possible they’re both having a crazy week, but this is our watering hole.  It reflects what’s going on elsewhere in our lives.

As Zoe is putting pots straight into her fridge (rather than Tupperware), it tells me she’s not 100% on top of things, crazed or a tad lazy.  When Gordon opens his fridge door, half his shit probably falls out.  He might be a bit neater and more polished on the outside, but they’re both messy marvins on the inside.

They also seem like they’ve outgrown their current spaces.  The good thing…they’re both in the same camp.  (The perfect time to move into a bigger space together ☺)

Meeting of the Minds?

Zoe is clearly a thinker, an intellectual and wants to challenge herself.  She’s probably liberal and definitely idealistic.  I don’t say this as a judgment; it’s just obvious from what’s on her fridge.

I can’t say that Gordon and Zoe party less than Libby and Dane, but Zoe probably feels more burdened to solve the world’s problems.  I can’t tell if Gordon feels the same.  Outside his fridge energy rating, I see no signs that he’s environmentally conscious, whereas Zoe has the (worth-watching) doc Bag It front and center.

My wife and I don’t have the exact same political beliefs and many couples don’t.  Either way, it’s fine as long as Zoe still makes room for Gordon in her life and her beliefs don’t have to be his.

I also took note of the Calendar on Zoe’s fridge: not sure if Zoe has suffered from depression, or it’s a cause she believes in, but if she does suffer, it’ll be an issue they’ll have to deal with together moving forward.

A Healthy Harem

Gordon and Zoe eat relatively healthy.  So I have to assume they look relatively good naked.

They both seem to be active, backed up by Zoe’s aloe vera, for when she’s in the sun and Gordon’s Up N’ Go breakfast shakes, for when he…well, ups and goes.  I can provide a list, but suffice to say that they both have lots of fruits and veggies, the cornerstone to any nutritious diet.

To further Camp Compatible, they both eat meat, which I like to see.  It’s not a deal breaker if one is a vegetarian, but it does become an issue if they expect the other to follow their dietary restrictions.

Plus, on the sexual front, I find a direct correlation between a woman’s love of beef and boning.  (Go Gordon ☺)  Yes, I’ve met several vivacious vegetarians over the years, and it’s not a universal rule, but when women deny themselves the joy of food, they often deny themselves in other departments as well.

Foodies

Zoe is a foodie and a fan of the foreign variety.  She has mango pickle, popular in South Asia and India, plus she has several other foreign and specialty foods that are mostly found in specialty stores.

She also prefers variety, and quality over quantity.  Now, I don’t know how often Zoe and Gordon see each other, but as her fridge has enough grub to survive the apocalypse, I have to assume they spend more time at her place.  Much of her stash is perishable and 1 person couldn’t possibly finish it.

Gordon too has a touch of the foreign fetish via his wasabi and rice.  Now, his fridge doesn’t scream guy’s guy to me, which might be compatible with Zoe, who’s liberal.  Any dude that stocks soymilk over beer is more likely to prefer the arts over adventure.

Now, I like that Zoe has beer, wine olives and lemons, which can be for cocktails, but I see no sign of alcohol in Gordon’s fridge, which leads us to…

Is Gordon Sober?

It could be he digs on red wine or spirits that don’t need to chill.

Now, when it comes to dating, there’s no 100% right and wrong.  (Unless we’re talking about Oscar Pistorious)  Just what’s right and wrong for us.  Personally, I couldn’t date someone who’s sober.  Some of my closest friends don’t drink, I just happen to be a drinker, and lets face it: it’s not fun to drink alone.

Gordon might very well drink, I just don’t see it here.  (And it’s a safe bet he doesn’t have a separate wine fridge, as his main fridges is a starter model).

I do like that they both have cheese on standby to pair with wine, should they have it.

Is Timing Everything?

Zoe and Gordon both looks like they’re starting out in their careers or finishing up school.  They’re a good fit for each other on this front.  Personally, if I saw a woman with a starter fridge, she wouldn’t be a fit for me.   Not that a starter fridge is a turn-off, I’d just think we were in different places in our lives and might not be a match for a long-term relationship.

Gordon too has a touch of the foreign fetish via his wasabi and rice.  Now, his fridge doesn’t scream guy’s guy to me, which might be compatible with Zoe, who’s liberal.  Any dude that stocks soymilk over beer is more likely to prefer the arts over adventure.

Now, I like that Zoe has beer, wine olives and lemons, which can be for cocktails, but I see no sign of alcohol in Gordon’s fridge, which leads us to…

Is Gordon Sober?

It could be he digs on red wine or spirits that don’t need to chill.

Now, when it comes to dating, there’s no 100% right and wrong.  (Unless we’re talking about Oscar Pistorious)  Just what’s right and wrong for us.  Personally, I couldn’t date someone who’s sober.  Some of my closest friends don’t drink, I just happen to be a drinker, and lets face it: it’s not fun to drink alone.

Gordon might very well drink, I just don’t see it here.  (And it’s a safe bet he doesn’t have a separate wine fridge, as his main fridges is a starter model).

I do like that they both have cheese on standby to pair with wine, should they have it.

Is Timing Everything?

Zoe and Gordon both looks like they’re starting out in their careers or finishing up school.  They’re a good fit for each other on this front.  Personally, if I saw a woman with a starter fridge, she wouldn’t be a fit for me.   Not that a starter fridge is a turn-off, I’d just think we were in different places in our lives and might not be a match for a long-term relationship.

  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 2 of 4…


Couple number 2 is Zoe (top 2 fridge pix) and Gordon (bottom 2 fridge pix): both are 21 years old.

Like most couples, I see plenty of compatibility here and a few question marks.  That said, they’ve been together for 4 years so they’re obviously doing something right.

Now, diving into their fridges, here’s what sticks out to me…

Captain Chaos

Gordon and Zoe have this in common: their fridges are shit-shows.  If there’s chaos in one’s fridge, there’s usually chaos in one’s life.

Zoe’s Freezer looks like the epicenter of an earthquake and Gordon’s fridge looks like a dance scene from Slumdog Millionaire.  Now, it’s possible they’re both having a crazy week, but this is our watering hole.  It reflects what’s going on elsewhere in our lives.

As Zoe is putting pots straight into her fridge (rather than Tupperware), it tells me she’s not 100% on top of things, crazed or a tad lazy.  When Gordon opens his fridge door, half his shit probably falls out.  He might be a bit neater and more polished on the outside, but they’re both messy marvins on the inside.

They also seem like they’ve outgrown their current spaces.  The good thing…they’re both in the same camp.  (The perfect time to move into a bigger space together ☺)

Meeting of the Minds?

Zoe is clearly a thinker, an intellectual and wants to challenge herself.  She’s probably liberal and definitely idealistic.  I don’t say this as a judgment; it’s just obvious from what’s on her fridge.

I can’t say that Gordon and Zoe party less than Libby and Dane, but Zoe probably feels more burdened to solve the world’s problems.  I can’t tell if Gordon feels the same.  Outside his fridge energy rating, I see no signs that he’s environmentally conscious, whereas Zoe has the (worth-watching) doc Bag It front and center.

My wife and I don’t have the exact same political beliefs and many couples don’t.  Either way, it’s fine as long as Zoe still makes room for Gordon in her life and her beliefs don’t have to be his.

I also took note of the Calendar on Zoe’s fridge: not sure if Zoe has suffered from depression, or it’s a cause she believes in, but if she does suffer, it’ll be an issue they’ll have to deal with together moving forward.

A Healthy Harem

Gordon and Zoe eat relatively healthy.  So I have to assume they look relatively good naked.

They both seem to be active, backed up by Zoe’s aloe vera, for when she’s in the sun and Gordon’s Up N’ Go breakfast shakes, for when he…well, ups and goes.  I can provide a list, but suffice to say that they both have lots of fruits and veggies, the cornerstone to any nutritious diet.

To further Camp Compatible, they both eat meat, which I like to see.  It’s not a deal breaker if one is a vegetarian, but it does become an issue if they expect the other to follow their dietary restrictions.

Plus, on the sexual front, I find a direct correlation between a woman’s love of beef and boning.  (Go Gordon ☺)  Yes, I’ve met several vivacious vegetarians over the years, and it’s not a universal rule, but when women deny themselves the joy of food, they often deny themselves in other departments as well.

Foodies

Zoe is a foodie and a fan of the foreign variety.  She has mango pickle, popular in South Asia and India, plus she has several other foreign and specialty foods that are mostly found in specialty stores.

She also prefers variety, and quality over quantity.  Now, I don’t know how often Zoe and Gordon see each other, but as her fridge has enough grub to survive the apocalypse, I have to assume they spend more time at her place.  Much of her stash is perishable and 1 person couldn’t possibly finish it.

  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 1 of 4…


Though I hate to admit my mother was right about anything, she was about this: we are what we eat. (And heavily drink)

Dating is never an exact science, but our fridge can reveal a great deal about us, from our health to lifestyle, income to our sex life.

Now, can the above fridges tell us if these couples are made for Matrimony Manor?  Of course not.  Nothing is more complex and less logical than the heart.  But we can pick up some clues on compatibility.

As we all know, relationships need more than just sex.  Yes, sex can carry you for a weekend, (maybe a month if it’s seriously saucy sex), but after a while, you’ll need something more in common.

So, onto the fridges…

First up is Libby (top 2 fridge pix) and Dane (bottom 2 fridge pix): a duo that’s been dating for three months and are in their early 20s.

Are they compatible?  I say yes on several fronts…

Looks

Right off the bat, they’re both good-looking.  How do I know this?  Their fridges have more pix than a Facebook home page.  Living in LA, I’ve seen plenty of foul looking dudes with beautiful ladies, but for most couples, they’re in the same league.  Libby and Dane are.

Social Life

Sticking with the fridge front, it’s clear they both have a close-knit group of friends.  This I like to see.  Whenever I see a friend disappear cause they’re in a relationship, it’s a red flag.  QT with your BF is vital, but so is adding them to your group of friends rather than replacing them.

It’s also clear they both like clubbing: Libby’s party pic is front and center, as is Dane’s invite to ‘The Club’.

Now, by placing the other’s pic on their fridge, they’re making a place for them in their lives.  It’s not a negative if they weren’t doing this, but it’s a clear sign they’re taking the other seriously.

Healthy

As we delve inside their fridges, we can see they both eat healthy, which brings up a classic formula: healthy diet + exercise = 1 bodacious body.

Libby and Dane are in it to win it.  They both stock fruits and veggies, from spinach to tomatoes, peaches to pineapples.  For a couple in their early 20’s this is impressive, especially considering there’s not much junk food.

Libby also has a reusable bottle of water at home, so the plastic bottles are probably for on the go, a clue she works out.

Some say if you want to know what your date is going to look like in 20 years, check out their mom or dad.  I say check out their fridge.  Cause what they’re downing now will dictate what they’ll look like down the road.

Organized

Both of their fridges are neat, show hygiene and are organized.

That zucchini sticking out of Dane’s drawer scares the hell out of me, but that’s a whole other subject ☺.

Hygiene is beyond important.  In the Charlie Brown cartoons, there’s a reason no one wanted to shag Pig Pen.

Breaking for Breakfast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I don’t know who “they” is, but they must be very powerful, as we’ve all heard it.

Libby and Dane are believers.  Libby has a big stash of eggs, and as I don’t see other ingredients for baking, I assume they’re for breakfast.  Dane has eggs, milk and even real maple syrup.  It’s what weekends are made of.  I did a whole Dating Ammo post on the magic of real maple syrup, which is so much better than corn syrup-based crap: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s15dAkwH

And never underestimate the power of smell on the dating front.  Waking up your date with the smell of fresh brewed coffee and breakfast is a great move.  Dane’s got some skills.  Here’s a Dating Ammo post on the coffee front: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s19S9sVh

Final Observations

Libby has gluten free bread
 and with Chestnut Paste, tries to stay dairy free, so she has some dietary issues.  This is not a problem as long as they don’t have to be Dane’s issues as well.  He needs to respectful of her diet, but dating is a team sport.  They should hit restaurant that have choices for both, not all one way or the other.

Dane’s fridge can use some beer, but I still give him credit for being a guy’s guy.  He has steaks to grill and a bottle of JW Black on hand to get the night started.  I like to see a guy drink a whiskey over vodka.

Now do I put Libby and Dane on par with Will and Kate?  Uh, no.  (Unlike Dane, Will doesn’t take his shirt off every chance he gets ;)  But if Libby and Dane walked down the aisle someday, I’d be a fan.

 and with Chestnut Paste, tries to stay dairy free, so she has some dietary issues.  This is not a problem as long as they don’t have to be Dane’s issues as well.  He needs to respectful of her diet, but dating is a team sport.  They should hit restaurant that have choices for both, not all one way or the other.

Dane’s fridge can use some beer, but I still give him credit for being a guy’s guy.  He has steaks to grill and a bottle of JW Black on hand to get the night started.  I like to see a guy drink a whiskey over vodka.

Now do I put Libby and Dane on par with Will and Kate?  Uh, no.  (Unlike Dane, Will doesn’t take his shirt off every chance he gets ;)  But if Libby and Dane walked down the aisle someday, I’d be a fan.

Aussie Cosmo I


  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 1 of 4…


Though I hate to admit my mother was right about anything, she was about this: we are what we eat. (And heavily drink)

Dating is never an exact science, but our fridge can reveal a great deal about us, from our health to lifestyle, income to our sex life.

Now, can the above fridges tell us if these couples are made for Matrimony Manor?  Of course not.  Nothing is more complex and less logical than the heart.  But we can pick up some clues on compatibility.

As we all know, relationships need more than just sex.  Yes, sex can carry you for a weekend, (maybe a month if it’s seriously saucy sex), but after a while, you’ll need something more in common.

So, onto the fridges…

First up is Libby (top 2 fridge pix) and Dane (bottom 2 fridge pix): a duo that’s been dating for three months and are in their early 20s.

Are they compatible?  I say yes on several fronts…

Looks

Right off the bat, they’re both good-looking.  How do I know this?  Their fridges have more pix than a Facebook home page.  Living in LA, I’ve seen plenty of foul looking dudes with beautiful ladies, but for most couples, they’re in the same league.  Libby and Dane are.

Social Life

Sticking with the fridge front, it’s clear they both have a close-knit group of friends.  This I like to see.  Whenever I see a friend disappear cause they’re in a relationship, it’s a red flag.  QT with your BF is vital, but so is adding them to your group of friends rather than replacing them.

It’s also clear they both like clubbing: Libby’s party pic is front and center, as is Dane’s invite to ‘The Club’.

Now, by placing the other’s pic on their fridge, they’re making a place for them in their lives.  It’s not a negative if they weren’t doing this, but it’s a clear sign they’re taking the other seriously.

Healthy

As we delve inside their fridges, we can see they both eat healthy, which brings up a classic formula: healthy diet + exercise = 1 bodacious body.

Libby and Dane are in it to win it.  They both stock fruits and veggies, from spinach to tomatoes, peaches to pineapples.  For a couple in their early 20’s this is impressive, especially considering there’s not much junk food.

Libby also has a reusable bottle of water at home, so the plastic bottles are probably for on the go, a clue she works out.

Some say if you want to know what your date is going to look like in 20 years, check out their mom or dad.  I say check out their fridge.  Cause what they’re downing now will dictate what they’ll look like down the road.

Organized

Both of their fridges are neat, show hygiene and are organized.

That zucchini sticking out of Dane’s drawer scares the hell out of me, but that’s a whole other subject ☺.

Hygiene is beyond important.  In the Charlie Brown cartoons, there’s a reason no one wanted to shag Pig Pen.

Breaking for Breakfast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I don’t know who “they” is, but they must be very powerful, as we’ve all heard it.

Libby and Dane are believers.  Libby has a big stash of eggs, and as I don’t see other ingredients for baking, I assume they’re for breakfast.  Dane has eggs, milk and even real maple syrup.  It’s what weekends are made of.  I did a whole Dating Ammo post on the magic of real maple syrup, which is so much better than corn syrup-based crap: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s15dAkwH

And never underestimate the power of smell on the dating front.  Waking up your date with the smell of fresh brewed coffee and breakfast is a great move.  Dane’s got some skills.  Here’s a Dating Ammo post on the coffee front: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s19S9sVh

WeltamSonntag 4


  I was featured in Welt AM Sonntag, the largest Sunday paper in Germany.  Working with the talented Susanne Kaloff, I broke down the fridges of 4 eligible German bachelors.
  
  Here’s part 4 of a 4 part series…


I’m not a brilliant man, but I’m pretty sure there are a few things we can all agree on:
1.  The Germans know how to make Bratwurst.
2.  Heidi Klum is hot.
3.  Never buy generic ketchup.

I’m sorry, but if you can’t afford the extra 86 cents for Heinz, move back in with your parents.

“Good and Cheap” ketchup??  A homeless person can do better than that.  Any brand that says it’s “Good and Cheap” is usually right about only one thing: it’s cheap.  Their original slogan was “Cheap and Shit” but they weren’t moving any units, so they tried “Good” in its place.

As we all know, eating and drinking is our main dating activity.  So what’s in our fridge reveals a lot about who we are and how compatible we are with someone.

You usually get what you pay for and generic is a cheaper version of an attempt to taste like the brand.  What’s in our fridge will eventually be in us.

If someone buys everything cheap, no matter what their income is, they’re most likely not just scrimping on food, but also everything else.  And lets face it…cheap people are not sexy.  A generic or two is one thing, but across the board is a no-no.

Unfortunately, Fridge 4 is mostly going generic across the board.  Now, this guy might be just starting out in his career, or in between jobs.  Nothing is definitive from checking their fridge.  He also might be the greatest guy I never met.  It’s just from what I see on the dating front, he might not be in the best place to settle down right now.

His yogurt is generic, Prosecco low-end and though I give him kudos below for salami and cheese, he’s not buying quality brands.  Also in this pool are his wieners, paella and water.

Every brand we buy has a target demo and a media plan.  So when we see certain brands in our fridge, we get clues about us from our sex to age range, the pubs we read to the shows we watch.

Now, I don’t know what’s going on with that cabbage thingy, but it looks more at home in the movie Shrek than in this guy’s refrigerator.

When I look at this fridge, I also don’t see a guy eating very healthy.  I can’t say his belly enters the room a minute before the rest of him, but there are a few concerns.

He’s got products like Rama Culinesse.  There are health benefits to this product, none of which are to help to keep you skinny.  To his credit, it’s a sign he cooks, which is datable quality.  Plus, he does have a couple veggies in there, which is great, and mustard and balsamcio are healthy condiments.

He has 1 salad dressing and it may be light, but it’s still cream based and he’s got plenty of butter.   And the last time I saw this many wieners in one place, it was in my gym’s locker room.

Now, I can assume with the bottles of water in the fridge, he uses them to work out.  I just choose not to ;) There’s not much further evidence that exercise is high up on his to-do list.

As I’d like to end on a positive note, I do see a few here…

•   On the dating front, it’s a good move that he has a frozen entrée on standby in his freezer.

•   With both mustard and ketchup, it is a sign grills, which is a quality I like to see.

•   His fridge is not inspiring, but I give him credit for being date ready.  Salami and cheese might not be offered on the Weight Watchers menu, but they’re great shareable foods to kick off a date with.  Paired with that Prosecco, his fridge has suddenly fueled his pad to be a solid pit stop before dinner.

•   For when he does get lucky, I’m glad to see he has tools to make breakfast.  Though the last time I saw eggs that big, I was watching Jurassic Park.

I don’t know if I’d equate this fridge with the short yellow bus to school, but it’s pretty far from sexy.  As I touch on above, it just depends on where the girl is in her life.  Whether we like it or not, dating very much is about timing.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on 1st Date: 4

With the evidence in front of us, the odds are this guy is not in the best of shape.  That doesn’t mean he’s not a catch, nor does it mean he’s stuck at home alone watching YouPorn.  But it lessens the odds that he’s closing on the first date.

One special quality about women (which is strange to us men) is that they can truly fall in love with a man they’re not attracted to.  It just takes a bit longer to build this bridge.

Plus, as he’s going generic on most products, it’s by no means a deal breaker, but this, along with his not too sexy fridge, tells me he doesn’t have the financial resources to pull out the big guns on date 1.

Marriage: 3.5

A man who cooks is not an automatic keeper, but it is a good quality and I’ll bump him up a bit for it.  I also give him credit for being date ready.

My concerns are that he’s not putting his best foot forward on the health front and as I touch on above, if he’s not in shape now, the odds are he’ll look even worse when married.

As he has a starter fridge, nothing’s definite, but it raises the odds that he’s starting out in his career.  If so, he might be in a position where his career comes first.  I was the same way when I was younger.  The result though is that he’s just not in a place right now to settle down.

Sleeping with the Enemy: 2.5

To this dude’s credit, I see nothing here that says stalker.  Yes, he can take better care of a few items, but his fridge is relatively clean, no chaos and he’s not hoarding.

Plus, he looks like he’s making the effort to cater to guests.  Stalkers and serial killers usually have more on their mind to focus on such things.

And lets face it: stalking can be very expensive.  This guy just doesn’t have the resources right now.

WeltamSonntag 3


  I was featured in Welt AM Sonntag, the largest Sunday paper in Germany.  Working with the talented Susanne Kaloff, I broke down the fridges of 4 eligible German bachelors.
  
  Here’s part 3 of a 4 part series…


The last time I saw this much white, I was watching One Flew Over the Cuckoo Next.  (So if this dude is institutionalized, I wish him a speedy recovery, but I digress ☺)

Now, there’s a Classic formula passed down through the generations: healthy diet + exercise = 1 bodacious body.  Checking this guy’s fridge, he’s no Fabio, but life is a balance and he’s showing a balance here.

He’s got healthy fruits like bananas, oranges and apples, which is great, and he’s ready to party as well.

I mean, the man can make a White Russian.  Who doesn’t love The Big Lebowski?   All he needs is a bowling bowl and his fridge can host the next LeboskiFest.  Speaking of being a killer host, I like the fact that on top of his wine (and Kahlua), he’s got vodka in the freezer, and Havana rum &amp; Coke for those Cuba Libres.

There’s something about this guy that spells fun.  And though we can all get caught up in our relationships, and the craziness that comes with them, at the end of the day, they should be fun.

He’s got more than one wine brand in his fridge plus a plethora of other choices, which tells me he’s catering to more than one taste.   A good host is a positive quality in a partner and a good sign they have a healthy group of friends.

He also has the big three condiments for a quality BBQ: Ketchup, Mustard and Mayo.  (Though I’ve always felt that tubes were more meant for toothpaste than mayo, I’m glad to see he has it)  Plus, he has Tabasco to boot.  Not only delish, it speeds up the metabolism.  Bettering the chances he looks good naked.

Sticking around Fun Town, the man’s got a healthy supply of Whip Cream.  I’m not sure if it’s for dessert, or the man’s into Varsity Blues and a good ol’ fashion boobie sundae, but it’s an additional asset.

Now, as his mom made him two large jars of marmalade on the top shelf, it’s good to know they’re on speaking terms, making his future wife’s life easier some day.  As long as he knows when to draw boundaries once he’s married, being close with mom is usually a good thing.

And I’d like to assume that golden bunny mom gave him is for Easter.  If not, as that bunny is staring at me, we need to have a serious talk.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on 1st Date: 8

There’s no such thing as a sure thing.  (Outside the red light district, of course)  But the guy’s got booze, munchies and in case of an emergency, can pull out a chocolate bunny.

The hard part is getting someone back to our love nest.  The easy part should be keeping them there.  Our fridges should provide us with the tools to do so.

With enough snacks and bevs on hand to avoid a run to the corner store, mission accomplished.  I see this fridge as the 1st stop on the way to Titillation Town.

Marriage: 7.5

There are certain people we shag and certain people we marry.  This guy appears to be the latter with everything I touched on above.

Now, he might be a bit of a mamma’s boy.  But he is a fun host, can cook and is relatively clean.  He takes care of his things and wraps his zucchini in plastic.  (Literally, no sexually translation there required)

Plus, he’s making an effort to balance his diet.   People say if you want to know what someone will look like in 20 years, check their mom or dad.  I say check their fridge.  Because what they’re putting in their bodies now is going to be a big factor in what they’re going to look like down the road.

For down the road, this guy just might be a keeper.

Sleeping with the Enemy: 1.5

There’s a sports expression: “that’s why you play the game”.  Meaning, no matter how good a team looks on paper, you never know what’s going to happen in a game.

It’s the same with dating.  We’re all a little crazy.  And whether Fridge 3 is a match for you, I couldn’t say.   But as we can see from his fridge, he’s more likely to chill bunnies than boil them.

Fridge Analysis


  Stonehill,
  
  I have a blind date with Ted and in honor of you, I asked him to send a fridge pic.  Should I be afraid?
  
  -Julie


Stonehill Analysis

Julie, am I afraid of roid rage?  Yes.

Am I also afraid of those dudes who drag their igloo coolers down the beach selling drinks on the weekends?  Yes again.

Giving Ted the benefit of the doubt that he doesn’t make a living loitering around Muscle Beach, it’s safe to say that he’s AWOL: an Asshole Working Out Loudly.

We’ve all watched them.  Those douches that believe the louder they work out, the larger their muscles will grow.  The dudes convinced their tank tops are way sexier after cutting them up with a pair of scissors.

Cause if there’s one thing we know, it’s those guttural cries and echoing clanks of metal on metal is their version of a mating call.  What a gym is to them, Happy Hour is to the rest of us.  Cause AWOL’s are at the gym to do one thing: mate.  They down Protein Rush, the way we down Martinis.

Ted’s obviously never made it professionally or his fridge would be a step up from the Sub-way-less-than-Zero model.

Though I hated having to take Latin in 6th Grade, there was one expression I found invaluable: Nosce Te Ipsum…know thyself.  In whatever capacity of life, knowing thyself is important.  For dating, it’s vital.

Know who you are.  And though I do believe in taking chances on love and dating out of the box, I also believe dating is a game of playing the odds.

For AWOL here, if you have double-digit body fat, no tramp stamp and spin in more than just a bra, you’re most likely not his type.  He might be great, he might come in extra handy when you have to move, but this is about finding that special someone.

Can I imagine his build?  Yes.  But leave him to his fellow kind.  And occasional underwear model.   And next time he performs that loud exercise that makes no sense to the rest of us, whether it’s slinkying the climbing rope or slamming the medicine ball into the floor, admire him from afar. (Using at least 2 mirrors)

Stonehill,

I have a blind date with Ted and in honor of you, I asked him to send a fridge pic. Should I be afraid?

Fridge Analysis


  Hi, Mr. John Stonehill –
  
  I have a friend who wants his fridge done and wants to know why he has problems with women. I know him well and I’ve already told him why, but he doesn’t believe me. So I guess he needs your expert opinion.
  
  And when you do his write up, would you call him “The Bergler”? That’s his nickname here in our scooter club.
  
  Thank you!

Stonehill Analysis

Hey Leslie,

I’m not sure if we can learn more from “The Bergler’s” fridge, or the fact that he’s in a scooter club, but we’ll stick to fridges for now.

When I look at this fridge, it reminds me of a great line in The Incredibles:

Helen: Everyone&#8217;s special, Dash.Dash: Which is another way of saying no one is.

That’s what I think of when I look at this fridge.  And I don’t mean it in a bad way.  Some of us (and our fridges) just don’t stick out as spesh, positive or negative.  Bergler just seems like a regular dude.

Per your note, can I see room for improvement?  Of course, we all can..  But it’s not a smoking gun that this guy is home watching YouPorn on his Saturday Nights.

To break down Bergler’s fridge, we’ll separate our thoughts into 2 camps: Hot and Not…

Camp Hot

•   I like his fridge model.  The pic doesn’t tell the make, but it is stainless steel, has humidity controlled veggie drawers, plus digital temperature controls.  All features that cost extra.

•   He shops at Whole Foods.  It’s an upscale store that carriers premium quality for a premium price.  (The fact he also shops at a Kroger-owned supermarket, like most of us, reinforces his residency in camp regular)

•   He’s (mostly) a brand guy, with Schweppes, French’s and Land O&#8217;Lakes for support.

•   He has skim milk.  Is it hot if he downs it by the half gallon?  Uh, no.  But at least it’s fat free and with his healthy stash of eggs, a sign he’s big on breakfast.

•   Fever Tree Ginger Ale: this is a renowned company that produces 1st class mixers and is found in several of the world’s top restaurants.  Whether it’s to mix with Jack or to enjoy on it’s own, it shows B-Train’s got taste.

•   He’s got foodie potential, at least when it comes to Asian sauces and pastes.

Camp Not

•   Corona.  Lets be frank: clever commercials aside, it’s the Milwaukee’s Best of Mexico.  A quality beer doesn’t need a lime to add flavor.  I have to assume Bergler is more influenced by its media than its product (which most of us are at times).

•   Camp Carb.  I mean, how much bread does one guy need?  There are prisons that serve less.  He does eat relatively well, and reinforces the ‘middle-of-the-road’ theme.  Plenty of fruits and veggies, but enough bread to build one big belly.

•   Heluva homebody.  The Bergler has enough perishable foods to keep him home more than he should be, yet not what’s needed to host a date.  With the bread alone, he’s got enough sandwiches for a week.

•   His freezer is an ‘oh’ for organization.  He does have some quality stuff in there, but they look like they’re living under a rock.  Chaos in one’s fridge = chaos in one’s life.

We live in a day where everyone gets a trophy.  My feeling: you get a trophy for being spesh.  That’s not to say Bergler isn’t.  It’s just that nothing calls out that he’s a must-meet, or a must-miss either.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on first date: 4
I like the fact that he has beer to serve, plus cheese if he has a lineup of red wine.  If he’s using it to make cheese sandwiches, he’s screwed.  (Not the good way)

Plus, lets face it: guys on scooters normally don’t kill it with the ladies.

Marry: 5
The Bergler again falls middle-of-the-road.  He probably has a career as he can afford an upscale model.  Plus, he drinks and eats meat, both of which I like to see.

It’s important to put your best foot forward when you’re single.  If you don’t, you’ll probably look worse when you’re married.

With enough bread and jelly to keep peanut butter in business, Bergler’s probably not svelte.  But he’s eating well enough, that I assume he’s no worse than average either.

Boil your Bunny: 3.5
He has female friends who vouch for him, a big plus.  The fact he rides a scooter, an additional sign he’s harmless.

I don’t like that he has enough bread for a stakeout and his chaotic fridge is a red flag.

Though I still have to keep him below average.

Fridge Analysis

Stonehill,

Help! This is Jack’s fridge. Here’s the deal: I really like him and he makes me laugh. We sleep together, but he hardly calls and when he does, we hardly go out. I understand that he travels a ton, but I’d like to see him more. Basically I don’t know what’s going on, does his Fridge tell you anything?

xoxo

-Lindsey

Stonehill Analysis

Lindsey,

You seem like a sweetheart and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Greg is as genuine as a 3-dollar bill. He’s not traveling a ton, he just doesn’t want to see you. If he did, he’d call and take you out in public.

We’re here to find the one, so I won’t waste your time with Jack the Jerk-off, and prefer to yank the Band-Aid off quickly.

Lets dive into his fridge. This is a guy who clearly doesn’t leave home much. How do I know? Cause I travel a ton and my fridge doesn’t look like I have enough to survive when the big one hits. Nobody’s left behind this much evidence since OJ, check out the bottom…

I can’t tell you when his bushel of apples was bought, but considering they’re pristine, and without plastic, they’re fresh. His bread in the left drawer is also in good shape and a clear signal he’ll be in town awhile. Buying bread is committing to making sandwiches and/or breakfast at home.

Moving up a shelf, the guy has Tupperware. That’s a pretty domesticated dude. I don’t have Tupperware and I’m married for God’s sake. If he can put enough thought into keeping his shit fresh, he can put enough thought into dialing a freakin’ phone.

Moving up a shelf, look at those sandwiches. They’re less than a day old, and I hope one is for you. If not, he’s having company after you skedaddle. This guy is too damn healthy to down two heroes at once.

Now in defense of you short-changing yourself, I assume Jack has a hard body. There’s a serious amount healthy shit here. I never ever saw a dude with coconut water. Jamie Lee Curtis has less yogurt. The guy’s got game. Almond milk for cereal, skim milk for breakfast and coffee, I’m Impressed. For him, not your prospects.

I don’t even need to get into the bottle of wine and olives, my point is made.

Jack is clearly capable of caring about himself and his comfort, though not your feelings. Now, I’m assuming if you’re sharing your feelings with me, you are with him. (If not, we’ll talk about a good therapist)

Jack is not a bad guy if he doesn’t like you. He’s a bad guy if he’s lying to you. But you’re the one who’s truly at fault here. You dictate the relationship you want to live. If you’re giving Jack everything he needs (i.e.: a good rogering) without getting what you need in return, you’re empowering him to do so.

If you want to see him more, don’t shag him until he sees you more. If you want to be taken out, don’t shag him til he takes you out. Stop giving him what he needs without getting what you need in return. If he stops calling? F’m. Buy a Rabbit and join a tennis league.

If you value yourself less than Happy Hour at Sizzler, that’s what you get…average dudes who want all they can eat for a minimal investment.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on first date: 8

Fridge Analysis


  Stonehill,
  
  Just met two months ago.  He has a tinge to OCD but so do I.
  
  -Ally


Stonehill Analysis

Hey Ally,

When it comes to dating, there are no absolute rights or wrongs.  (At least, if they’re not Oscar Pistorius, but you get my drift)  There’s only what’s right and wrong for us.

You’re clearly dating Mr. Hospital Corners.  What matters is to what degree and to what degree works for you.  As you have a touch of OCD as well, this might be the Yankees Stadium of fridges in your book.

It was a Nominee for OCD fridge of the year.  (Here’s the winner, who’s eligible, in case you guys break up: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s196Oqcj ;)

Now, fortunately, this fridge doesn’t reek of Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets, but it can double as a teaching tool for geometry class.  The apple juices look like they were built by I.M. Pei and if your canned beverages marched in better formation, they’d be Nazis.

When we look at a fridge, we might only learn a couple of things about the person.  That applies here.   Yes, he has exceptional organizational skills and is equally impressive on the hygiene front, yet there’s not a ton more here that’s glaring.

Here are a few guesses…

He’s a Kid at Heart

If he had any more apple juice (or varieties), I’d have to assume he was 6.  And how many half gallons of milk does 1 dude need?  It’s clearly for more than just coffee.

He’s a Male Millennial

Per my background in marketing, I’m very familiar with Kickstart and its target demo.  Pepsi Co is heavily advertising the brand in publications and on shows that reach Male Millennials, so there’s a good chance he’s one of them.

The Guy’s not Gargantuan

He doesn’t have a ton of actual food in this fridge, but from what he does have, he’s eating well.  He’s got fruits and veggies, and on the milk front, at least he’s going skim.  Plus, with all the caffeine in that Kickstart, there’s a good chance he’s active.

If he can’t take care of himself when he’s single, it’s a major red flag for down the road and his road is looking fine.

He can Host

It’s not just that he has enough beer to share, he has way more beer than all of his other beverages combined.  I have to assume he has his buddies over, a social quality I like to see.

He’s doing well in his career.  (And his next one might be a B and B)

He has an upscale side-by-side fridge model with a through-the-door water and ice dispenser, so his financial footing is probably on solid ground.

Plus, the last time I saw such an extensive gourmet jelly collection, I was staying at a Bed and Breakfast.  Very impressive.

Fridge Dating Scorecard  (on scale of 1 to 10)

Shag on first date: 3.5
I don’t see OCD guys having much game in the closing department.  There’s just something not-hot about being told when you put down your drink to kiss him that you forgot the coaster, and when you fling off your undies that you need to pick them up and place them neatly on a chair.

Marry: 5.5
With a nice fridge model and as well organized as he is, that’s a good sign that he’s on a career path.  Money never brings happiness, but if you’re not struggling, it helps.

The OCD issue is really up to you and as you swim in the same pool, it could be the perfect fit.

I don’t know many OCD peeps who very funny and laughing is important, but I do give him credit for putting effort into his diet, exercise and hosting duties.

All stalkers are OCD of some type.   At least, this fridge is not scary.  But it does bump him up a bit on the SWTE front.

Fridge Analysis

Stonehill,

Just met two months ago. He has a tinge to OCD but so do I.

Stonehill Analysis

Hey Ally,

When it comes to dating, there are no absolute rights or wrongs. (At least, if they’re not Oscar Pistorius, but you get my drift) There’s only what’s right and wrong for us.

You’re clearly dating Mr. Hospital Corners. What matters is to what degree and to what degree works for you. As you have a touch of OCD as well, this might be the Yankees Stadium of fridges in your book.

It was a Nominee for OCD fridge of the year. (Here’s the winner, who’s eligible, in case you guys break up: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s196Oqcj ;)

Now, fortunately, this fridge doesn’t reek of Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets, but it can double as a teaching tool for geometry class. The apple juices look like they were built by I.M. Pei and if your canned beverages marched in better formation, they’d be Nazis.

When we look at a fridge, we might only learn a couple of things about the person. That applies here. Yes, he has exceptional organizational skills and is equally impressive on the hygiene front, yet there’s not a ton more here that’s glaring.

Here are a few guesses…

He’s a Kid at Heart

If he had any more apple juice (or varieties), I’d have to assume he was 6. And how many half gallons of milk does 1 dude need? It’s clearly for more than just coffee.

He’s a Male Millennial

Per my background in marketing, I’m very familiar with Kickstart and its target demo. Pepsi Co is heavily advertising the brand in publications and on shows that reach Male Millennials, so there’s a good chance he’s one of them.

The Guy’s not Gargantuan

He doesn’t have a ton of actual food in this fridge, but from what he does have, he’s eating well. He’s got fruits and veggies, and on the milk front, at least he’s going skim. Plus, with all the caffeine in that Kickstart, there’s a good chance he’s active.

If he can’t take care of himself when he’s single, it’s a major red flag for down the road and his road is looking fine.

He can Host

It’s not just that he has enough beer to share, he has way more beer than all of his other beverages combined. I have to assume he has his buddies over, a social quality I like to see.

He’s doing well in his career. (And his next one might be a B and B)

He has an upscale side-by-side fridge model with a through-the-door water and ice dispenser, so his financial footing is probably on solid ground.

Plus, the last time I saw such an extensive gourmet jelly collection, I was staying at a Bed and Breakfast. Very impressive.

Fridge Dating Scorecard (on scale of 1 to 10)

Shag on first date: 3.5
I don’t see OCD guys having much game in the closing department. There’s just something not-hot about being told when you put down your drink to kiss him that you forgot the coaster, and when you fling off your undies that you need to pick them up and place them neatly on a chair.

Marry: 5.5
With a nice fridge model and as well organized as he is, that’s a good sign that he’s on a career path. Money never brings happiness, but if you’re not struggling, it helps.

The OCD issue is really up to you and as you swim in the same pool, it could be the perfect fit.

I don’t know many OCD peeps who very funny and laughing is important, but I do give him credit for putting effort into his diet, exercise and hosting duties.
