    I agree with “Tackle”. Keep you kitchen and bathroom meticulously clean. Pick up your clothes and make your bed. Make doubly sure there is no smell and you’ll be fine. Good luck.

    No matter what, a framed still from a "Three Stooges" movie is an absolute necessity for success with women. HH

    This guy is thinking along the right lines.

    But there is ONE place that you do want to spend money on and fix up: the bathroom. Buy expensive towels and lots of lotions and perfumy soaps and just spend a bunch of money.

    Make sure you include lots of girly items and make sure you do this: buy a pack of ultra-thin pads, open it up an throw a couple pads away, then put the package with the lotions and stuff.

    Don't ask me to explain why, but this works.

    Extra credit if all your friends IRL are dogs.

    I listened to my first Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and George Carlin on reel-to-reel. And I'm only 50!

    This. My first solo place looked so outdated and mismatched, that had it been a garage sale, people would have complained for me wasting their time. But it was spotless and didn't smell like ass and feet and my now wife enjoyed coming over almost thirty-five years ago. HH

    P.S. Get a washer and dryer, and women will become mere putty in your hands.

    This is a great idea if you can't find a woman to help.



    Even Big Lots couldn't furnish the whole place for $2000. He's looking at garage sales and Goodwill.



    No, it proves nothing. He asked for decorating tips, and I asked how much was my budget. It would have been irresponsible of me to give advice without asking that first.



    That's right. Spend the $2000 on a big screen tv and sit on the floor.




    Cleanliness is important. No empty beer cans piled in the corner like @Von Hayes .

    BTW, all of us women can tell the difference between designer furniture and Walmart, not just the "uppity" ones. Just saying.



    And wash your sheets at least once a week.



    I will never understand men's fascination with them. BF and his surfing buddy even imitate them sometimes.

    For my tastes, I would paint the walls something light and neutral in a range from bright white to beige. Rip out the carpet and replace it with hardwood flooring matching the living room. That should eat up 2k, but it will be easier to coordinate with neutral colors and work with empty rooms. Unspeakable nasties could be in your carpet and padding.
