This Woman's Tinder Profile Has People Arguing About Toilet Paper Rules

Dating can be rough. You gotta go through a lot of frogs to find your prince, and a lot of the frogs can be crappy at messaging on Tinder. They’ll send a bad message responding to your bio, your pictures, your musical taste. Any info they can get about you could inspire a stupid comment or rude question. But this is the price we pay for l’amour.

Writer Hana Michels shared her own issues with this system on Twitter, sharing an image of herself she’s had on Tinder. In it, she’s standing in the bathroom, brushing her teeth. In the background, a toilet paper roll is visible. According to Michels, in the past year she’s received 23 messages from men telling her she’s hanging her TP wrong. 

Men, I ask you: why?

She further clarified that she also swipes on women, none of whom have had a thing to say about her toilet paper roll.

The thing is, people have opinions about toilet paper, and her tweet got a lot of responses:

TP can be divisive in the household:

Can a roommate relationship recover after toilet paper has split it asunder? Michels seems open to understanding another point of view, as long as it doesn’t come at her via Tinder.

And her view is not uncommon. Many agree that under is the way, the word, the truth:

There are actually lots of practical reasons for it:

But then came the naysayers, many of whom took umbrage with Michel’s assertion that only men sent her this message.

At least one person has been literally taking on the issue with their own two hands:

But there is actually an answer to this eternal debate. 

The original toilet paper roll was patented in 1891 by New York businessman Seth Wheeler, according to the Huffington Post. According to Wheeler, the paper should go over:

This info was also submitted to the debate:

But the best answer in my opinion is this:

If you’re not paying for and stocking my TP, don’t talk to me about it. Especially before you even buy a girl a drink.

This Woman Asked Her Boyfriend For A Paper Clip And Got A Lesson On Gender

Look, people are different, and there’s no need to make generalizations based on gender. But sometimes it’s fun to.

Like in this tweet about how men caption Instagram posts obscenely, while women seem to actually want to keep their partners:

Or this one, about how men are physically and psychically unprepared to pick out a simple pair of leggings:

But this tweet from Twitter user @CiaraTobin may be the simplest iteration of the genre ever. She shared text messages with her boyfriend Riley, in which she asks for a paper clip and ends up discovering more than she wants to know about his organizational habits:

I’m gonna be honest, this isn’t that far off from how I store my office supplies, but I still find Tobin’s loving exasperation with her man very funny.

And everyone else finds it extremely relatable, because they’ve lived it (both men and women):

At least one other person had a similar story saved and ready to go:

Wherever you are on the gender spectrum, you know if this is you.

Now, where are my paper clips?
