Can't be. There are only 16 combinations of food, sex, gratuitous violence and sleep.

Edit: Sadly my list is actually better. What kind of list about men involves a women going shoe shopping? Its a list about women masquerading as a list about men.

That's not really a good list about "men."

Gotta say, I think some of it's wack, anyway.

12. It’s OK to sleep with multiple men at the same time, as long as you’re honest with them and safe about it.

Err... what? The hell with that.

That is probably the worst list I have every seen. I don't know who cooks up this nonsense but they are off their rocker. I don't know if it's funny or sad or both.

That list is real bad I would not teach my daughters to follow that list ever and if my son ever meet a female that goes by that list I would run her off.

With him eagerly following, I imagine?

One thing I'd add since I think its very important for women to understand. If he seems too good to be true, its very likely he is. Sort of the opposite of #19 - Always trust your gut. and # 35 - Never settle. Absolutes don't work well in relationships, especially in the medium to long term.

# 16. If he can’t laugh at himself, he’s too uptight, should apply to women too, perhaps more so.

As far as the rest of the list goes, it could be pared down to the following 11 but who can say if its truly comprehensive:


1. If you’re paranoid he’s cheating, then you don’t trust him and the relationship should be over.
5. Be honest and upfront about your feelings, and demand the same from men.
6. Don’t try to change a man.
8. The first time he hits you is the last time he hits you, because you leave.
10. If he’s not willing to work on the relationship, then he’s not invested in it.
14. Keeping your man sexually satisfied will do wonders for your relationship.
15. You both should be able to say “I’m sorry.”
24. Never waste your time with a man that makes you feel bad about yourself.
30. Men need to be cuddled and hugged, too.
31. Find someone to share your life with, not fill in the gaping hole in your life.
36. Date potential, instead of vainly searching for Mr. Perfect.






If this doesn’t do anything for you, its probably safer to follow # 37 - Be a lesbian.

Is this for street walkers or real women?


"Men are powerless in the face of female sexuality. "

Is this list for real men or the 95% of men that are wussies and shouldn't reproduce lol

Before I culled the list, most of the points seemed to be written for strippers, hookers, porn stars and women who desperately need a meal ticket. What was left was a few boundaries to keep the marriage going for more than a few weeks!

As I attempted to show, there is a little good in everything.

2/3rds of that list was shallow crap. The other third was common sense. I'm guessing the author doesn't understand men at all.

I particularly like #21, "Don’t bother overanalyzing him. His reasoning is likely very simple." If men's reasoning were very simple, how come so many women on this board can't figure men out?
