The Rules for Men and Women

From Andy Ruddock

Women's 50 Rules For Dealing With Men

  1. Do not say what you mean. Ever.
  2. Be ambigious. Always.
  3. Cry. Cry often. Tell them it's their fault.
  4. Bring things up that were said, done, or thought years, months, or weeks ago. Get mad when they don't remember.
  5. Make them apologize for everything.
  6. Stash feminine products in their backpacks and in their books as cute reminders that you were thinking of them.
  7. Gossip. Gossip about everything that walks.
  8. Play Alanis Morissette's "You Outta Know," loud. Look at them. Smile.
  9. Look them in the eye and start laughing.
  10. Cry.
  11. Get mad at them for everything.
  12. Discuss your period in front of them. Watch them squirm.
  13. Hold grudges.
  14. Demand to be e-mailed. Often. Whine when they don't comply.
  15. When complimented, make sure to be paranoid. Take nothing at face value.
  16. Use daddy as a weapon. Tell them about his gun collection, his quick trigger finger, and his affection for his "little princess."
  17. Be late for everything. Yell if they're late.
  18. Talk about your ex-boyfriend 24-7. Compare and contrast.

  20. Cry.
  21. Make them guess what you want and then get mad when they're wrong.
  22. Plan little relationship anniversaries, i.e. the monthly anniversary of the time you saw each other in the library...for five minutes. Then get mad at them for forgetting. Then cry.
  23. Fall for your FAC.
  24. Gather many female friends and dance to "I Will Survive" while they are present. Sing all the words. Sing to them. Sing loud.

  26. Constantly claim you're fat. Ask them. Then cry, regardless of their answer.
  27. Leave out the good parts in stories.
  28. Make sure to only be interested in guys in the same friendship group. Make sure to cause trouble.

  31. Declare that you are not wacko.
  32. Criticize the way they dress.
  33. Criticize the music they listen to.

  36. Try to change them.
  37. Try to mold them.
  38. Try to get them to dance.

  41. When they screw up, never let them forget it.
  42. Make them stay at religious services until they are close to fainting. Just because.

  46. Get mad if they don't notice a haircut. Even if it's only a half inch.
  47. Read into everything.
  48. Over-analyze everything.

Men's Rules For Dealing With Women

  1. Don't call. Ever.
  2. Lie.
  3. If you don't like a girl, don't tell her. It's more fun to let her figure it out by herself.
  4. Be as ambiguous as possible.
  5. If you lose something that belongs to someone else, tell them you mailed it to them.
  6. No matter what, it isn't your fault.

  8. Women like it when you ignore them.
  9. If you hurt someone, pretend you care. Don't.
  10. Tell her you will call. Then, refer back to rule #1.
  11. Deny everthing. Everything.
  12. Use the best break up line, "It's not you, it's me".
  13. Don't have a clue. If you get a clue, pretend you didn't and disregard it.

  16. ALWAYS apologize. NEVER mean it.
  17. It's OK if you forget trivial things, like your girlfriend's birthday and eye color.

  19. It is never your duty to take responsibility for your actions.
  20. Don't ever notice anything.
  21. If you cheat on a girl, but no one finds out, then technically you've done nothing wrong.
  22. If the question begins with "why", the answer is "I don't know".
  23. If you ever find yourself in a position where you have been proven wrong, blame others.
  24. If anyone asks you for a favour -
    • (a) make a big deal about how hard it is for you to do it;
    • (b) remind them of this huge favor you've done for them at least every day for the rest of their life.
    • Lie.
