“Bachelor Pad”

Maybe since I haven’t been a bachelor since 5th grade, I’m not qualified to understand why this term is so widely used and easily accepted.

Do people who live in “bachelor pads” really think they’re cool? Or are they so past the point of desperation they feel that dubbing their Ikea-clad condos with a hip name might help them sleep at night, even if it doesn’t help them score some chicks?

Or maybe “bachelor pad” is simply a term used by the parents of the guys who live in them, used when talking to their other empty nester friends about their sons accomplishments over t-bone steak and red wine?

Whatever the case, I just don’t get it.
