This comes from a site designed to help men become 'Don Juans'
Someone hold IceR back.
(No wonder these clowns need help meeting, attracting, and developing relationships with women)
I've added some snide remarks.
The following list has been compiled as the result of insights on these forums as well as my own personal experiences. Now, in life there are sometimes exceptions to rules, but in general these rules should be followed by DJs. Also, some of these aren't "rules" per se, but more like observations or insights. Enjoy.
RULE 1: Chicks communicate in two modes: the way things are and the way they WISH things were. Whenever in doubt, assume it's the latter choice.
** Remarkably, once you get out of middle school, mature women will communicate what they are thinking and feeling.
RULE 2: Chicks desire attention the same way that guys desire sex. Give attention sparingly. This is your currency.
** Currency? Giving attention sparingly will get you what you deserve: Dumped for someone who values the woman.
RULE 3: Do not become so invested in any one girl that you cannot simply walk away.
** Assuming all you want are cursory relationships that lead to nothing.
RULE 4: Confidence attracts women even more than good looks. This is why you see fat, ugly, or dumpy guys with hot chicks.
** Actually, it's money. Perhaps these fat, ugly, dumpy guys actually pay attention to their dates?
RULE 5: Desperation repels chicks. You will attract more women when you don't care if you're attracting women.
** Actually, this is true.
RULE 6: After getting a girl's phone number, wait at least two days to call her to avoid appearing desperate.
** Unless you really are interested.
RULE 7: Use the phone only to set up dates. Not to talk about weather, current events, how her day went, etc. Save that conversation for the date.
** Actually, this isn't bad advice, although I wouldn't cut phone conversations rudely short.
RULE 8: If you call a girl and get an answering machine, don't leave a message. Just try again another time. Girls, as a general rule, do not return phone calls.
** Apparently not to you.
RULE 9: First dates should be short and creative. NO "dinner and a movie". Things involving some activity are best: pool, bowling, roller blading, mini-golf, dancing, etc. Keep it FUN.
** Another good chunk of advice. Do something you are both interested in.
RULE 10: Do not give gifts early in the relationship. Doing so makes it appear as though you are attempting to purchase affection.
** Like with your 'currency', attention?
RULE 11: Girls will test guys to see how much they can skate by with. Do not be tempted to give in. Speak your opinions, stand by your convictions, and don't put up with excessive amounts of bullsh*t.
RULE 12: A person can only take advantage of you as much as you let them.
** Hey, dumbass: If someone is trying to take advantage of you in a romantic relationship, they really don't care for you, do they?
RULE 13: There is no such thing as a "soulmate" or "the one". It doesn't exist. There are millions of girls out there, though, and many of them have the traits you are looking for in a girl.
** Not a very romantic lot, eh?
RULE 14: Don't put any girl up on a pedestal. You risk not being able to reach her. Women are people too... or so I'm told.
** Brilliant. Use that line in a bar. (When you are old enough to get into one, that is)
RULE 15: If a girl disrespects you or your time, particularly early in the relationship, don't hesitate to get rid of her. NEXT!
** Pure genius, I tell you.
RULE 16: No relationship is a committed one until both people agree that it is. Until then, anything is fair game for both parties involved.
** Fair game?
RULE 17: Never be the one that says, "I love you" first.
** Absolutly not. NEVER let the chicks see what you are really feeling. Once you start doing that, you are only steps away from giving up watching football for watching Lifetime.
RULE 18: The challenge is part of the fun. Don't short-change the girl. Let her pursue you. The harder something is to obtain, the more valuable it is perceived to be.
** Another little hint: If you act like you arent interested, many women won't waste their time on you.
RULE 19: If a girl cheats on you, she is gone. No exceptions.
** I'm guessing this happens quite often to these fellows.
RULE 20: Never date a girl who has more problems than you do.
** Well, that won't rule out many for this bunch.
RULE 21: Do not date girls from work. Work is stressful enough.
** Unless you really like them
RULE 22: Dating is a "numbers game". Accept the fact that you're going to get rejected more times than not. Suck it up and get back out there.
** Kinda like the lottery, huh? Maybe, someday, you'll find a woman who is actually MORE desparate than you.
RULE 23: Getting advice about women from a woman is like asking Osama bin Laden to tell you the locations of all his terrorist camps.
** he's the only person who knows where they all are.
RULE 24: Where women are concerned, pay more attention to what they do than what they say.
RULE 25: Realize that women are tricky, lying, manipulative, devious, scheming, sneaky, cunning, calculating, shrewd, and Machiavellian creatures. Love them anyway.
** when you hit puberty, this feeling goes away. You'll also learn girls don't have cooties.
RULE 26: Bros before hoes. Any girl that can be stolen from your best friend isn't worth stealing from your best friend.
** I actually agree with this, although wouldn't put it quite so crudely.
RULE 27: Stay away from your ex. Chances are that you won't be able to get back with them (the pool has been pissed in). Chances are also good that if you DO succeed in getting back with your ex, you'll wish that you hadn't.
** As if these guys have ex's that would take them back!
RULE 28: Don't reveal too much about yourself too soon. Remain a mystery.
** A riddle, wrapped in an enigma.
RULE 29: Girls are not the only thing in life. Have other things in your life that excite you.
** GI Joe just released a new action figure.
RULE 30: If you aren't sure about when to bend or break a rule, go with your instinct. If it's wrong, that's a good lesson for next time... and there's always a next time.
** A rule? No wonder you guys need a website to help you.
