If you've braved the world of dating, there's one undeniable fact of which you are likely aware: Single men have terrible pillows. The guy you're dating might have one good pillow (which he insists on using himself) or he might have nothing but bad pillows. Either way, you're going to be forced to rest your head on a "pancake-flat, limp, and visibly stained" excuse for a pillow, writes Serena Golden at MEL. She calls the pillow problem an "epidemic" and says it's time for it to end. And bachelors, don't wait until you have a girlfriend to do something about this problem.
"Every dude should have at least a couple of pillows with some fluff and heft to them—I think down is most comfortable, but it’s not important that a guy shell out extra for the real deal (and some people are allergic)," Golden writes. "The fattest synthetic ones you see at Walmart or Ikea or whatever will do just fine, provided you replace them every few years or so—we can tell if you haven’t gotten new pillows since the ones you bought along with the twin extra-long sheets you needed for your freshman-year dorm room."
