From Kevin Pankhurst

We always hear "The Rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.

These are our rules! Please note they are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE

(Print this out and remember it. And don't moan. If you're a man pass to your partner for greater understanding. If you're a woman keep it somewhere prominent like on the fridge)

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us bitching about you leaving it down.
1. Birthdays, Valentines and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again!
1. Sometimes we are not thinking about you. Live with it.
1. Saturdays = Sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
1. Don't cut your hair. Ever. Long hair is always more attractive than short hair. One of the big reasons why guys fear getting married is that married women always cut their hair, and by then you're stuck with it.
1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.
1. Crying is blackmail.
1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear about this one: subtle hints do not work! strong hints do not work! obvious hints do not work! Just say it!
1. We don't remember dates. Mark Birthdays and Anniversaries on a calendar. Remind us frequently beforehand.
1. Most guys own three pairs of shoes - tops. What makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?
1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help in 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. Check your oil! Please!
1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.
1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us. We refuse to answer.
1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of them makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.
1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it's genetic.
1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know how best to do it, just do it yourself.
1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.
1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions. .........Neither do we.
1. The relationship is never going to be like it was during the first two months we were going out. Get over it. And stop whining to your girlfriends.
1. ALL men see in only 16 colours, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example is a fruit, not a colour. We have no idea what mauve is.
1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.
1. We are not mind readers, and we never will be. Our lack of mind reading ability is not proof of how little we care for you.
1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "Nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you're lying, but it's just not worth the hassle.
