Why Growing Up With Sisters Makes You A Better Man...

By no fault of your own, you could either be the only boy in your family or one of many. Whether you like it or not, it's likely to have an effect on the person you become. Here is how growing up with sisters makes you a better man...

You understand when women are having a bad day

Sometimes it's just a look. But my God, you'll know when the girls of the house don't want anything to do with you. So stay well away and wait for them to come to you.

Women don't terrify you

For boys who don't have any sisters, girls can seem mildly terrifying at first. Growing up with us, you realise we don't bite, and you understand how to handle us better.

You pick your time to watch TV

If you're living in a house with four women, watching an entire football match could make for hard days work. Either get yourself a TV or find somewhere to go out with your Dad for some peace.


You abide by the rule 'Ladies First'

This one will set you up for life. Nothing's better than a man with manners. Those of you without sisters, you're welcome.

Your patience for the bathroom is amazing

It will be a true mystery to you why women need to spend so much time in the bathroom. However it will work wonders for your patience in life.

You have amazing chick-flick knowledge

You may not want to admit it, but you'll earn some serious brownie points when you suggest a rom-com to your girlfriend that she doesn't know already.


You know how to protect women in your company

This can only be a good thing. If you've got a sister to stick up for, do it!

You don't have to share

Things like an Xbox are yours and yours only. There's nothing better than not having to share those brand new Christmas presents with anyone.

You give great presents

Women are pretty honest when it comes to gifts, especially if they're your sisters. So after a few harsh knocks, you should know exactly what to buy the women in your life.

You know how to shop

You're very aware of shopping malls and know how to get as far away from them as possible. It's a simple in-and-out mission for you boys and browsing is not a word that appears in your dictionary. Again, your patience will be tested when you're standing in an underwear shop waiting for your sister.
