If you're interested in someone (whether in a romantic sense or purely sexually) and find that they have a very cluttered room, does it gauge as a turn off for you?


personally I like it; I'd be more freaked out by a consistently prim and tidy room - then again I am a really cluttered person when it comes to my own space so I might be biased So long as the room isn't messy to the point of being dirty/unhealthy/disgusting.


edit: I think we would all be turned off by smelly rooms, so disregard that as part of the question I just mean cluttered or messy, so... clothes on the ground, books everywhere, irrelevant shit on the tables, etc

Interesting question. Most girls I've known have been infinitely tidier than me, so it hasn't really come up.

Cluttered, no.

Stinky and dirty, yes.


This.

My room is ridiculously messy, stuff piled up everywhere it shouldn't be piled up...but I keep it clean and at least hygienic. Perfectly tidy and arranged rooms make me nervous.
I once knew a girl (far from attractive, thank fuck) who kept the underwear she was wearing the night she lost her virginity in a drawer next to her bed. Not washed. That was one of the least disgusting things in there. Seriously, some people need to sort shit out

It'd be a bit hypocritical of you to be, what with the evidence for your messy room (thanks, will-kun ).

yep I'm certainly not bluffing that's actually what led me to the thought process that made this thread hahaha. Messy room picture in my profile too.

I am the messiest person on earth. I'm sure if my boyfriend was made aware of this early on we wouldn't be going out.
I've also managed to mess up his bedroom, just leaving stuff on the floor. I can't help it. I'm terribly lazy

I'm trying to appreciate being messy for the next 10 weeks because when I get in the army it wont be tolerated.

Check out how neat your locker has to be. Not enough hours in the day for that.

See, if someone kept their room like that willingly I'd be a bit terrified. I dated a really neat/prim guy like that (shoes arranged and all, kid you not) and I love the boy to death but damn is it uncomfortable staying there. And he was always snippy about where I left my clothes if I was spending the night or where I put my bag and stuff.

There are two reasons for that:

1) He's got OCD, or

2) He's so far in the closet he's finding last year's Christmas sweater.

Definitely the first one; he's just really anal. Again, I adore the guy and we're still the best of friends but he knows very well that he's pretty stringent about that shit haha.

Funny coincidence though, I did date a guy for a while who turned out to be gay and he was so overwhelmed by messy rooms that he'd have anxiety attacks and throw all his shit out the window... I pick them well, obviously.

nope. my room should probably be roped off to alert people. unless someone has stuff rotting in there, I don't mind.

^This. A million times, this. My room is pretty much trashed, but I don't really qualify it as "dirty". Its mostly clothes that I don't feel like washing/putting up because I rarely wear them, and unopened cans, with a few boxes and pieces of styrofoam from when I got a new bed that I still haven't found the motivation to break down and throw out.

My room is super messy and has been that way for the last 8 years (which is when we moved into the apartment I live in now) so I'm used to messes. Sometimes when I go to friends' houses it's nice to be able to walk around a room without falling over things, but I don't think I'd be able to live there because 1) I'd get yelled at for being messy and 2) messes are more comfortable and slouchy

What's odd is that every few months I go on a cleaning expedition and sort everything out into piles, but then I never get around to putting it away and it gets strewn around everywhere again and I still enjoy doing this. Maybe I just like the act of cleaning

But messes are more fun, every day is like an adventure. Today I found a ceramic duck I made in 2nd grade under a chair so I repainted it

so no, I definitely would not mind if a guy I was dating was messy

I'm OCD. Everything I own has a place, and everything is at right angles to each other.

Messy rooms are a turn off. However, my wife is a "need clutter" person... so I'm getting better about not screaming.

The locker in the army picture looks like my desk/my side of the closet/my side of the bedroom/everything I am allowed to organize.

Turn on to a certain extent. Turn off if it's stinky/I can't even walk in it.

yeah I'm the exact same way! except I have a lot of failage when I smoke with the intention to clean my room and end up dancing around to music or watching youtube videos and eating too many baby carrots instead I have to feel compelled to clean inherently or shit just will not get done... however, if it does get done, it is thorough as all hell

Yeah I binge clean too every now and then. There's a certain threshold of messiness where I just get fed up with it. I'm usually very disorganized and there's a bunch of stuff on the floor in my room atm so it'd be kind of hypocritical for me to be turned off by a girl's messy room.
