Of course Stowers’ observations do not apply to all women. But a lot of women have read and responded to his thread with one conclusion: “I love girls.”
Stowers grew up with one older sister named Cat, but he'd never lived with women his own age before, especially complete strangers.
“If they were uncomfortable I would have slept on the floor of my friend's room, but they were very welcoming and friendly as soon as I walked in,” he said.
But because they were living in a small space, he was always privy to their conversations and observed a lot about how differently it was living with a group of women for the first time.
“I am a naturally observant person and so very quickly picked up on the things that the girls were doing that boys do not,” he said.
One of them being finding shower drain hair-grips and systematically categorized clumps of hair in the shower.
Or how his roommates naturally organized themselves into certain roles, especially when they went out. “I noticed very quickly that Charlotte was the ‘mum’ of the group,” he said.
Or the unspoken rule that Charlotte, Abbie, and Fish shared the clothing they packed freely.
“I think it is an unusual situation I was thrown in to, being a guy living with three girls in a close environment for one week,” he added. “I think it made me pick up on their idiosyncrasies more.”
The entire thread has gone super viral, as well as each individual tweet/finding.
“I guess I just thought that some people may relate to it and find it amusing,” Stowers said.
“The girls found my Twitter thread very amusing.” Charlotte, Abbie, and Fish, have confirmed Stowers’ accounts.
Stowers told BuzzFeed News living with these roommates for a week had “improved [his] patience” and made him appreciate the entire, elaborate process of getting ready, and helping each other get ready for a day or night out.
“The most pleasantly surprising thing about living with them was how quickly they accepted me as part of the group and began to look after me,” he said.
