Ditch the zodiac signs, colors and numbers as Kate Swisher believes the 'grandma theory' will tell you more about a guy in the initial dating stage.
Women have several ways to identify the traits or personalities men possess. Be it zodiac signs, left or right-brained theories, and so on. However, Kate Swisher–who goes by @kateswisher on TikTok–revealed an interesting and amusing way to figure out what women are in for when they get into a relationship with a guy. She talks about the viral ‘grandma theory' and claims it decodes a possible future one can expect from their guy. The theory revolves around the idea that the way a guy addresses his grandmother describes a lot about his expectations and experiences that will further help a woman understand the relationship. She began her video by assuring viewers that one does not need a zodiac sign or moon phase to understand a guy.
“Simply ask them, ‘What do you call your grandmother?’” she said. Swisher then began decoding the various titles grandmothers prominently have. The first was “Gigi.” Swisher said, “They’ll have high expectations for gifts because Gigi won’t let you sit on her white couch, but she will make up for her emotional unavailability with extremely good presents.” Next up was “Nana.” The woman said that guys who address their grandmothers as “Nana” are likely to be more intellectual and might love to read. “Because Nana won’t babysit unless she’s asked two weeks in advance, but she will show up on time and read good bedtime stories.”
Swisher hilariously moved on to “Meemaw” and said that if cooking is a part of oneself, don’t marry someone who calls their grandma “Meemaw,” as her cooking will always be the best. Leaving a humorous signal, Swisher mentioned that if a guy calls his grandmother “Grandma,” there’s not much to predict and one is “really going in blind.” “You have no idea what you’re getting into. If he calls his grandma by a name like ‘Grandma Susie’ then you’re safe. You just need to have a really good cookie recipe,” added Swisher.
With her ‘grandma theory,’ Swisher sparked a debate on its accuracy online. The video has received 4.2M views so far and nearly 377K likes. While some users mentioned the aptness of the theory, others compared it to "satire." @3colby commented, "Stop" while @_glad_main_ wrote: "I will assume this is satire." @ajbabayy shared: "This can’t work cause all cousins call their grandma the same thing."
Several users were curious to know about other titles. @drewjordan said, “What about Mom-mom?” @ayay_ron01 said, “I called mine MeeMaw!” To provide an answer for the plethora of titles, Swisher posted part 2 of the Grandma theory. “If he calls her by her last name like ‘Grandma Miller,’ he’s generational wealth,” Swisher said. She added that if he calls his grandma “Mimi,” Swisher suggested that the guy may be a fan of gardening and might even be sensitive. Users weren’t able to get enough of it. The more hilarious reasons Swisher came up with, the more titles others had to offer.
In part 3, Swisher spoke about a guy calling his grandma “Mom-Mom.” “Run. He’ll expect you to do his laundry and act like he’s dying every time he has a cold.” With over 1k comments still flooding the section, many were amazed at what seemed to be the next viral trend and theory. @prickly_villan said, “That nanny one is too accurate.” @lee.20000 said, “I need a grandma theory for women because I love my grandma.” While the theory seems bizarre to some, for others, it is an accurate prediction.
