I would make fun of each of those if the sad truth wasn't that not following them also got me nowhere

and when I say nowhere I mean ... well ... nowhere


ah hell, these rules are actually stil stupid even to me

Judging from what Marty posted, I think my fiance is only about 60% typical male.

Gah, I never follow any rulebook when it comes to relationships (granted, I've only had one boyfriend so far, but still...). Besides, the guys I like never act like your "typical" male to begin with.

In regards to this...

Learn to work the toilet seat. Don't allow it to outsmart you, If it's up, put it down.

Heh, I've never really understood the big problem people have with this, either. It's a toilet seat. Why are we arguing over a toilet seat?

If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

That sounds fair.

Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again!

I'm weird-I don't expect anything lavish or fancy. If they get me something lavish or fancy, fine, but it's not a requirement.

If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

Again, I think that's fair.

If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us. We refuse to answer.

Bah, the whole "Do I look fat?" question has always bugged me and I've always felt bad for guys in regards to it, 'cause they'll never win. If they say "No", the girl will think think they're lying, if they say "Yes", the girl will get upset with them. They obviously think you look fine to them, otherwise they wouldn't be with you to begin with, so...*Shrugs*.

Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as fishing, cricket or monster trucks.

Saturday = sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.


Heh, the guys I like aren't ones who are athletic or into monster trucks or things of that nature, so no worries there. .

Shopping is not a sport, and no, we're never going to think of it that way.

I like shopping, but it's not as important to me as it is to some women, and even then, I like shopping for books, music, and movies. I'm not a fan of clothes shopping or shoe shopping. I just want to go in, get whatever seems the most comfortable to me, and get out.

You have enough clothes.

You have too many shoes.


Read what I said above in regards to shopping (fyi, I have, what, three pairs of shoes, and that's all the more I need).

Ask for what you want. Let's be clear on this one: Subtle hints don't work. Strong hints don't work. Really obvious hints don't work. Just say it!

Makes sense to me.

Most guys own three pairs of shoes - what makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?

LOL, true.

Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.

Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.


Something I actually disagree on-sometimes it's nice to have a guy console you (and the kinds of guys I like, again, wouldn't agree with this line of thinking).

A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

LOL.

Foreign films are best left to foreigners.

Haha, the kinds of guys I like enjoy foreign films-my old boyfriend was really into them. .

Let us ogle. We're going to look anyway; it's genetic.

I'll agree with this-after all, girls ogle guys all the time, so it's kinda stupid to yell at guys for doing the same thing.

Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

Disagree with this.

If it itches, it will be scratched.

Duh. I can live with that.

Beer is as exciting for us as handbags are for you.

Handbags don't excite me. .

Angela

I agree with most of what Angela says. I think all these rules are lists of sexist details, I mean, I know guys who love shopping and girls who don't. I know girls who make a mess of the bathroom and guys who don't ! I don't know if you feel it in your countries but in France, we witness a new (strange) kind of men : the Metrosexual : means that these men are very fond on shopping, they use more beauty products than women, they love to take of themselves (sometimes much more than women too), and they're heterosexual. Some really have feminine ways.
Do you girls are attracted by these men ?
Do you men recognize yourselves in that description ?
I don't know what to think about it, really, but I know I'm not attracted but men who are very well-turned ! (see my list of the 5 sexiest men alive on the Plebans thread ! ) but of course, I also have a problem with guys who let themselves go !
Complicated, isn't it ?

I'll try to find something during the week end !
BTW, Marty, I put you in My Buddies : actually I don't really what it's meant for (maybe you could explain me !), I hope you don't mind, but you know, you were among the first to reply to me, so...
