Girls Rules For Guys

  1. May 10, 2006 #1
    I'll let you in on the rules girls wish guys knew but wouldn't tell them because they should already know them!

    1. Asking a girl on Friday for a date on Saturday is completely unacceptable. Keyword: Planning
    2. Shave every day. One day's growth of facial hair is worse than a girl not shaving her legs for a week.
    3. We may be emotional beings, but do not lie to squirm your way out of trouble. We are not as gullible as you think.
    4. Learn to clean up the toilet. If peeing standing up is so difficult and you are bound to miss, then may we suggest that you learn to use a toilet brush and sponge to clean up after yourself.
    5. We really don't find it attractive when you stand there stratching yourself in the morning, afternoon or night- please do it in private.

    6. Don't do it, if you're not going to follow-thru. A woman would rather not have sex at all, than to have it and miss the climax by a mile because you weren't up for the challenge. (checked with LYN on this, sorry if it's inappropriate! Just delete it if so).
    7. Don't fix it if it's really not broke. You don't need to take everything apart out of curiosity.
    8. Ask for directions
    9. If you said you are going to be somewhere at a certain time, then do it. Don't expect us to wait around.
    10. Professional Wrestling and Soap Opera's are the same story lines, just different costumes. So don't make fun of us for being hooked on Y&R when you are hooked on WWF.

    11. "I don't feel like talking right now" is an acceptable thing to say- Unacceptable thing to do is sit there and pretend you're listening and just say "uh huh" and "yes Dear"- it's condescending.
    12. Get rid of your holey underwear.
    13. If you can ogle so can we!
    14. One remote is ENOUGH... no need to have a control tower in your living room.
    15. Couch Potato is not a sport, so don't try to be an All-star at it!

    16. Your way is not always the right way. Learn to say- "I was wrong"
    17. If we can't talk to you during a football game, then don't try to get our attention during Ally McBeal.
    18. If you say you are going to do something, then just do it. Don't sit around thinking of creative excuses why you couldn't get to it.
    19. We are not your mothers, so don't expect us to clean up after you like one.
    20. SkyLine Chili is not considered a romantic dinner for two.

    21. We have other friends of the male sex, so leave your jealousy at the door!
    22. If you concede to let us decorate the house without any input from you, then don't complain when everything is in frilly flowers, and pink motif.
    23. When wearing a dress shirt, wear an undershirt underneath. Nothing worse than seeing a man's hairy chest and nipples through his shirt.
    24. Hey, we CAN be friends with our ex's- so deal with it!
    25. We understand that you have to put on a manly act in front of your friends, but in the privacy of your own home, it's okay if you just want to cuddle.

    1. Why can't the girl ask
    2. Girls should too
    3. Yes you are
    4. I agree!
    5. Evolution at work...
    6. hahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha
    7. yes we do. human knowledge MUST progress! if this means opening everything up, so be it.
    8. Ask another man for directions? Isn't that a little contradictory :D
    9. As if girls know how to keep appointments
    10. No, soap operas suck.
    11. uh huh
    12. gross!
    13. way to be the more mature person, not
    14. until the day women stop complaining that they don't know how to use universal remotes, our towers stay
    15. Stop watching your soap operas all day
    16. Tell women that
    17. Deal!
    18. As if women don't do this
    19. We are not your fathers, don't expect us to get you out of every little problem you make for yourself :P
    20. Indeed!
    21. Girls are always more jeolous then guys, i did not even know this was a disputable fact
    22. I've never seen a guy who conceded this, the woman just failed to listen
    23. Be thankful some guys even put their shirts on
    24. Refer to #21
    25. It's ok to fake your feelings towards people you know in public, just don't expect us to care when you come home nagging everyone in life.

    I think i've countered beautifully for my side of the biological war.

    Hah@LYN. Practice makes perfect, ladies and gents!

    I think I have only one rule:

    (1) Don't be stupid.

    If you aren't sure whether a given action is stupid or not, I will tell you. Wait, I already have one. When I state that a person p is physically attractive, do not assume that this implies that I want to marry p or mate with p or anything else whatsoever. It is sometimes merely an observation.

    Terrible advice.

    Relationships are reciprocal. You kind of displayed how selfish girls are in relationships.

    If you're unhappy with something, say so. Don't expect your partner to figure it out all the time.

    I totally disagree with number 1 though, like it's totally/entirely wrong. I met girls that wouldn't care at all, or most of them don't. Girls who do care are normally uptight and think that their time is so valuable that you can't squeeze anybody in, NOT EVEN THE GUY YOU HAVE A CRUSH ON!!!

    I didn't read them all because I found the first ten just lame.

    Half of the rules are just common courtesy that guys must follow, but girls must follow too.

    Like honestly, a girl will never get in a good relationship if she's this selfish.

    Since relationships are reciprocal, I always think as follows...

    If you expect me to do something, then I should expect the same from you.

    So, for all the girls out there expecting pretty things for Valentine's Day, etc..., well I'm expecting pretty things too. I like chocolate too you know. :tongue2:

    Note: I went back up to read some more. It's just so sad that girls think they are perfect and do better than guys when it comes to relationships.

    For the girl who spends time thinking about these rules, get a NEW BOYFRIEND AND STOP WHINING!

    I received this in an email and I thought it a great example of the difference between the way the sexes think.

    Her Diary said;
    Monday 17 November 2003
    Saw John in the evening and he was acting really
    strangely I went shopping in the afternoon with the girls
    and I did turn up a bit late so I thought it might be that.
    The bar was really crowded and loud so I suggested we
    go somewhere quieter to talk. He was still very subdued and
    distracted so I suggested we go somewhere nice to eat.
    All through dinner he just didn't seem himself; he hardly
    laughed, and didn't seem to be paying any attention to me or
    to what I was saying.
    I just knew that something was wrong.
    He dropped me back home. I wondered if he was going to
    come in; he hesitated, but followed. I asked him again if
    there was something the matter but he just half shook his
    head and turned the television on.
    After about 10 minutes of silence, I said I was going
    upstairs to bed. I put my arms around him and told him that
    I loved him deeply. He just gave a sigh, and a sad sort
    of smile.
    He didn't follow me up, but later he did, and I was
    surprised when we made love. He still seemed distant and a
    bit cold, and I started to think that he was going to leave
    me, and that he had found someone else.
    I cried myself to sleep....

    His diary said;
    The team lost the game - but we had sex!!!

    Now that's the best advice so far. :biggrin: With all these silly rules on both sides, if you're spending your time obsessing about this stuff, you obviously need a new boyfriend or girlfriend.

    I also don't agree at all that there's any problem asking on Friday night for a date on a Saturday. The only risk there might be in asking last minute is I might already have plans, but if I don't, I'm happy to go out...heck, you could call me up Saturday night and say, "What are you doing tonight?" and I'd be willing to go out if I wasn't doing anything. If it's bothering someone that they guy is asking last minute, it's probably that you're not really interested in him anyway. But, if your social schedule is so busy that you need 2 weeks notice to fit in a date, then maybe you should ask the guy out. :wink:

    Well, the rules are of course tongue-in-cheek, but there are probably some people who take some of them seriously.

    I strongly object to #2. I haven't shaved in almost 25 years, and then only twice in a one week period, and before that I went about 4 years without shaving. :biggrin: I don't mind if women don't shave, and actually I find hair on womens arms and legs more pleasant to the touch.

    As Jason mentioned, relationships are reciprocal, well that is successful relationships are reciprocal and mutual (bilateral). :smile: :cool:

    Unilateral relationships (where one partner is mostly giving and not receiving, while the other is receiving and not giving) fail. :yuck:

    Actually, men are evolutionarily designed to be more jealous because extra-marital copulations affect them more. They have resources to lose if they've been cuckholded. Thus, men are more violent when it comes to cheating and more suspicious of their mates.

    I just think it is silly for women to shave their hair.

    I also don't think make up is necessary.

    I've also been with the same woman for 25 years, of which I've been married for nearly 24, two weeks short of Artman.

    :rofl: He was too preoccupied with sports to fully process that bit:wink:
  16. May 10, 2006 #15
    :!!) Perfect attitude. In turn, I don't care if a guy dresses like a slob or never shaves his face. I actually just found these rules on the web and I don't agree with all of 'em.
  17. May 10, 2006 #16
    Just a response to the guys rules. Only half serious:tongue:

    I don't really mind hairy legs or pits on a girl. Obviously looks a bit better if it's shaved, but it's not the end of the world if there's some fluff there! Some other areas are improved with tactical use of a razor, but it doesn't really matter too much. Make-up is a complete waste of time though, we can see through the disguise!.

    P.S. Whenever I put on make-up, I'm really in a bad mood!:bugeye:

    Perhaps because it's not common for boys to wear make-up?:tongue2:

    Cause: make-up
    Effect: bad mood
