As a follow up to my previous post, here’s the kind of forward I might enjoy:

I’ve gotten this email a number of times, but it’s never failed to bring a smile to my face. It also illustrates my knowledge on the subject, or the lack thereof. 😀

Finally , the guys’ side of the story.
(I must admit, it’s pretty good.)
We always hear ” the rules ”
From the female side.

Now here are the rules from the male side.
These are our rules!
Please note.. these are all numbered “1”

1.Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport.
And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmailing

1. Ask for what you want.
Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every

1. 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.

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

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

1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are.
Don’t ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways
makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something
Or tell us how you want it done.
Not both.If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say “nothing,” We will act like
nothing’s wrong.
We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, Expect an answer
you don’t want to hear.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape.Round IS a shape!

Many thanks to Ankit for sending it across.



  1. it makes me laugh too.
