Most chain e-mail is truly nonsense (or just icky sweet), but this one has actually offered me something to think about in terms of love between mundanes. This is a list of things guys should (allegedly) know about girls, and I just thought I'd share it with you all, in the off-chance that it inspires some debate about the difference between mundanes and geeks in the way they pursue life and love.

1. Don't ever lie to us; we always find out.
2. We don't enjoy talking dirty to you as much as you enjoy listening.
3. Don't say you understand when you don't.
4. Girls are pretty, but yours is the Prettiest!
5. You don't have PMS; don't act like you know what it's like.
6. Saying something sweet might get you off the hook; doing something
sweet will always get you off the hook.
7. If you talk about having a big Dick; we know you don't.
8. Size does matter, but only to hoes; not girls that want relationships.
9. We don't like it when you act like Mr. Big.
10. A system in your car only impresses your homeboys not us.
11. No matter what you say, your ex-girlfriend is a hoe.
12. It's good to be sensitive, sometimes.
13. If you did something wrong or even if you didn't, apologise.
14. Be spontaneous; dinner and a movie won't always cut it.
15. We are self-conscious by nature; we can't help it.
16. We are drama queens.
17. Fashion police do exist.
18. Don't ask us to give head; if you are nice you just might get it.
19. We absolutely DO NOT care about monster trucks, car systems, paintball,
or anything else you and your friends talk about.
20. Hugs and kisses must be given at all times.
21. We don't shave our legs everyday so get over it.
22. Don't make bets about us; we always find out.
23. Shave; no matter how cool you think your goatee or beard or moustache
looks, we hate it.
24. Even if you think it is cool to burp, fart, or emit other strange
gases from your body, it is not.
25. Don't compare our breasts with Pamela Anderson's; hers are fake, just
remember that. (You have a better shot at ours than you ever will with
hers.) [I'd prefer hers, and using darts - Ed.]
26. It is not cool to shoot snot rockets.
27. We are beautiful at all times.
28. We will always think we are fat, so humour us and tell us we aren't.
29. You can shoot hoops, score a goal, knock down big fat guys, and hit a
little baseball with a stick, so why the hell can't you piss in the
toilet and no on it.
30. Most importantly: we are always right; so don't forget it.

[Note: if quoting this, please take care not to quote the entire lot over and over again ;-)]

Yeah Z!!!! Hell we could all help....with the exception of the females(unless there are some things that you think you should know and yet somehow already know and want to tell us about them )... It could be our group project for our inter-gender life experiment.

i'll start by adding a few to the guy's list:

1. if you don't know your mosfet, amps, preamps , outs and preouts. forget shopping for a deck or something like that with us. ain't gonna happen.
2. love has nothing to do with touching our favourite piece of electronics, so get over the electric fence around it already.
3. ex girlfriends are EX for a reason, realise that please. don't bug us about it when we hang out with a group that decides to include her in it for whatever reason. we're hanging out with the group not her.
4. if you get to use a guys computer, don't go snooping through , find porn be disgusted and then keep him in the doghouse for a year. would you prefer he went elsewhere when you weren't around, instead of looking at "disgusting" porn?
5. just cuz the face is a smaller area doesn't mean we're gonna shave everyday, we sometimes don't feel like it......get over it.
6. just cuz we talk to you in the gym doesn't mean you're hot or even remotely interesting. it just means a. we're bored and need to take a rest.... b. wanna fall over from exhaustion but are too "manly" to sit down and look tired.....or c. "Yo, lady. if you're done with hugging the bench, mind if i get a few reps so i can go home and eat some food, my dogs are killing me."
7. its always dinner and a movie not because we're not spontaneous but because thats all we can afford. last we checked a gondola ride, dinner on it and a plane ticket to venice cost more than about $100.....

I have a feeling of deja vu about this post, but these two are surely contradictory.

I was just in Venice last month. The gondola ride alone is about $100 these days. The cost of dinner is not so bad, but don't go to Venice for food - try Florence or Bologna.

2. We don't enjoy talking dirty to you as much as you enjoy listening.

I don't know about that one.

4. Girls are pretty, but yours is the Prettiest!

Substitute smart with pretty (though pretty isn't bad, but smart is more important)

5. You don't have PMS; don't act like you know what it's like.

I don't get what the whole PMS thing is about, but that could be because I'm cranky all the time anyway.

6. Saying something sweet might get you off the hook; doing something sweet will always get you off the hook.

Not always, but it can't hurt.

10. A system in your car only impresses your homeboys not us.

Not neccesarily.

12. It's good to be sensitive, sometimes.

It's always good to be sensitive.

13. If you did something wrong or even if you didn't, apologise.

??? If you didn't do anything wrong, don't apolgize.

14. Be spontaneous; dinner and a movie won't always cut it.

I'd prefer going rollerskating or playing video games myself.

17. Fashion police do exist.

They do?!?!?!?

19. We absolutely DO NOT care about monster trucks, car systems, paintball, or anything else you and your friends talk about.

Depends on what your friends talk about.

20. Hugs and kisses must be given at all times.

Just don't interrupt me while I'm programming, unless more than a hug and kiss is promised, and even then is iffy.

23. Shave; no matter how cool you think your goatee or beard or moustache looks, we hate it.

Not neccesarily.

25. Don't compare our breasts with Pamela Anderson's; hers are fake, just remember that. (You have a better shot at ours than you ever will with hers.)

Remember, size doesn't matter, it's how you use it.

28. We will always think we are fat, so humour us and tell us we aren't.

What's wrong with being fat?

Love has everything to do with it. The guys at Circuit City know to keep the "Slippery with Drool" signs up over by the laptops when I come in. Or do you mean for the lady to keep away from the electronics? What the hell for?

4. ...would you prefer he went elsewhere when you weren't around, instead of looking at "disgusting" porn?

If a guy feels the need to go elsewhere or look at porn, perhaps something is missing in the relationship.

6. just cuz we talk to you in the gym doesn't mean you're hot or even remotely interesting.

If I'm at the gym, I probably will be hot!

7. its always dinner and a movie not because we're not spontaneous but because thats all we can afford.

Have you checked the price of dinner and a movie lately?

And a few things for guys to remember about geek girls:

1. Roses are nice, but even better is a new piece of hardware or software.
2. No interruptions while programming or playing Banjo-Kazooie.
3. Pizza is a food group.
4. Treat us with respect. After all, we know how to hack your Linux box.

In the realm of quirky typing, I think that I prefer Zorro's style of capitalizing words like Me, rather than THEM. It's a little less paranoid, in My eyes, but then again, you've said before that you're paranoid, or something.

I was actually instructed in the fine art of talking dirty by the second woman I had sex with. (can't really describe her as a girlfriend, per se...)

3. Don't say you understand when you don't.
Same applies! :P

4. Girls are pretty, but yours is the Prettiest!
Only if she's also the Insecurist. My girlfriend regularly points hotties out for me when we're out, just in case I hadn't noticed.

5. You don't have PMS; don't act like you know what it's like.
You don't have Irritable Male Syndrome (it's real, look it up); don't act like you've got a lock on mood swings.

6. Saying something sweet might get you off the hook; doing something sweet will always get you off the hook.
In both cases, the severity of the crime and the sweetness of the saying/doing are entirely subjective. A better rule would be: if you fucked up, make it up. And again, the same applies.

8. Size does matter, but only to hoes; not girls that want relationships.
In my experience, size matters to them too -- it's just not the only thing that matters.

9. We don't like it when you act like Mr. Big.
We don't like it when you act like Ms. Perfect.

10. A system in your car only impresses your homeboys not us.
Your milage may vary. I know mine certainly has.

11. No matter what you say, your ex-girlfriend is a hoe.
Unless she's also still a friend of yours, in which case...?

13. If you did something wrong or even if you didn't, apologise.
If you did something wrong, apologize. If you didn't but are expected to anyway, find a less neurotic girlfriend.

14. Be spontaneous; dinner and a movie won't always cut it.
Be realistic; if you want to do something new and exciting, help us come up with ideas -- and help us pay for it.

15. We are self-conscious by nature; we can't help it.
We're easily annoyed by nature; get over it.

16. We are drama queens.
So are we.

17. Fashion police do exist.
Sorry, but...like we give a shit? We only care how you look to us.

18. Don't ask us to give head; if you are nice you just might get it.
In that case...sorry, but same applies.

19. We absolutely DO NOT care about monster trucks, car systems, paintball, or anything else you and your friends talk about.
a. Not necessarily; my girlfriend actually was the one that bought us WWF tickets, not me.
b. In that case...wtf are you doing dating us???

20. Hugs and kisses must be given at all times.
Same applies.

21. We don't shave our legs everyday so get over it.
We don't shave our beards every day so get over it.

22. Don't make bets about us; we always find out.
Don't gossip about the stupid things we did behind our backs; we may not always find out, but when we do, we will always be hurt. Or angry. Or, god help you, both.

23. Shave; no matter how cool you think your goatee or beard or moustache looks, we hate it.
a. Again, your milage may vary.
b. Contrary to popular belief, we're not into double standards. If you're going to demand it of us, be prepared to demand it of yourself. If you're not prepared for that level of commitment, don't expect us to be either.

24. Even if you think it is cool to burp, fart, or emit other strange gases from your body, it is not.
True story: my girlfriend burps, farts, or emits other strange gases from her body at approximately five times the rate that I do. Half the time she brags about it; most of the time she gets the giggles about it; and she prides herself on the ability to make each belch a word.

25. Don't compare our breasts with Pamela Anderson's; hers are fake, just remember that.
My girlfriend's are actually bigger. Naturally. :P

27. We are beautiful at all times.
No, you're not. But we usually think you are.

28. We will always think we are fat, so humour us and tell us we aren't.
We always think we're studs, so humor us and tell us we are.

30. Most importantly: we are always right; so don't forget it.
No, you're not. And don't forget it. (Neither are we. We don't forget it either.)

Things girls should know about guys:


They are horny, and that won't change, and they like sex...


...a lot...

...and usually, if you don't give them sex...


...they will dump you...


...very quickly...


...so unless you want to put out...

...don't tease them too much...

Nice one there Janeway and Akira =)

I rather expected derision for the initial post, but I'm impressed to see some quality rebuttal against the original points. Although I know some of that stuff is either nonsense or only applicable to tarts (and I sent my own rebuttal to the person why forwarded that onto me), I still worry about it (and what sort of horrible experiences I have to look forwards too if I find a girlfriend).

Thankfully, within the geek community at least, there is a healthy dose of common sense and realism which is reassuring to know.

As for mephisto's list... where does he draw all that bitterness from? Were girls as annoying to him as the first list suggests that guys are to girls?

Hrm, I have strange times ahead.

very true. if they aren't born with it, most women eventually develop their own personal lie detector. Either that, or we become very good detectives...I'm ruthless when I need evidence someone's been lying to me.(very docile otherwise)

2. We don't enjoy talking dirty to you as much as you enjoy listening.

not true for all of us.

6. Saying something sweet might get you off the hook; doing something
sweet will always get you off the hook.

Don't get yourself on the hook to begin with.


13. If you did something wrong or even if you didn't, apologise.

load of crap.

14. Be spontaneous; dinner and a movie won't always cut it.

more crap.

18. Don't ask us to give head; if you are nice you just might get it.

Or if you're not nice.


21. We don't shave our legs everyday so get over it.

but we always do when we want to get lucky, so it might be every day


23. Shave; no matter how cool you think your goatee or beard or moustache
looks, we hate it.

more crap. stubble's fantastic.

30. Most importantly: we are always right; so don't forget it.

I'd say 70/30.

for the first one Uilleann, ahhhh ahhahah hahahah roflmao......eh you will find out on your own eventually eh?

bitterness is all around you, it links all mankind, they are the tiny particles that connect everytyhing....you get the idea.....
my bitterness.....even a professional shrink would have a tough time figuring that out.....but the honest answer i think would be all the dumb girls i knew before my babyducky.....although there is only one on there that was written because of her.......otherwise she's (mostly) perfect.....

Sounds like the distorted view of a bitter man :) I, for one, hope that I'll find that life isn't as bad as it seems. Hrm, even so, you're happily married, so what's left to be bitter about? And is it wise to even ask? ;-)

...I wonder what happened to them all, eh? Crushed tracheae, broken ribcages... who knows what untold suffering was brought upon those so unworthy members of the female sex. Hrm, don't suppose you mind popping around my way, cleanse out the place of a few such people? :P
[Not that I have anything personal against them, but it'd free up some houses and reduce traffic congestion, for one thing (two things, even).]

Here more for the Girls should know about guys...

#1 They aren't all over a foot long.

#2 Some guys actualy would like a relationship. (although I haven't met many but I know there are some out there)

#3 Not all guys like Pamela's breasts. Many like them much smaller. (Duh I mean more than a hand full is a waste)

#4 The easiest way to get a guys attention is to smile not by using a push-up bra. (That is if you want a relationship and not a sex fiend)

#5 Dinner and a movie... aka I am comfortable with you and will do something special on an anaversery of some kind.

#6 Pop-corn at the Movie... I got a raise!

#8 I am a computer geek don't expect me to have rock hard abs and bulging triceps cause I ride my bike not pump iron.

#9 I am sorry about any escaping gasses but hey I love bean burritos

#10 When you get an e-mail in the morning, just remember that I wrote it at like 3:00 am and it may not make total sense.

#11 I think you are beutiful even when you think you are fat and it is that time of the month.

#12 Some guys know what PMS is like only by having too many sisters in the house. (These are the guys who actualy know how to use a Tampon)

#13 Most guys love to play games where things get killed in a blody gory way it does not make your BF an odd-ball because he plays them.

#14 Most guys also like to play games like checkers as well.

#15 We have no idea what the "fashion police" are, what they are doing, and what they have done to scare our girl friends.

#16 We dress to be comfortable not to show our bodies so please we already know our pants are too big for a cowboy but we don't have to worry about them getting caught in a saddle either.

#17 The reason we don't like cats is because they are competition for affection. If you show us more love then you show the cat we will not hate it soo much.

#18 Don't forget the -X- is just that and we don't realy want to get back together with them.

#19 If we talk about what the -X- did better, nicer, ect. just smack us and tell us how inconciderate we are being and we will appreciate it.

#20 "It" has a mind of its own. Sometimes it grows when we leaste expect it.

For some women, it's cute for them to have an actual style, not a messed-up looking...thing . Personally, I like my men clean-shaven, but I think it's kinda geekishly cute if they didn't get to shave because of tweakin' their computer and such.

Eh? I think I'm not getting something here, but never mind

Sounds like the distorted view of a bitter man I, for one, hope that I'll find that life isn't as bad as it seems. Hrm, even so, you're happily married, so what's left to be bitter about? And is it wise to even ask? ;-)

...I wonder what happened to them all, eh? Crushed tracheae, broken ribcages... who knows what untold suffering was brought upon those so unworthy members of the female sex. Hrm, don't suppose you mind popping around my way, cleanse out the place of a few such people? :P
[Not that I have anything personal against them, but it'd free up some houses and reduce traffic congestion, for one thing (two things, even).]

Uillean, the first part of my reply was because it seemed to me that you were assuming that geek - geek relationships work perfectly and are complete harmonious right from the start regardless of everything else. Yes, I'm a happily married man but it took a long time and lot of working through and a lot of resolving conflicts and understanding to get to this point in the relationship. It wasn't all perfect from the begining. actually it was the complete opposite.

the bitterness being all around you thing was supposed to be a completely lame, bad parody of the medichlorean thing from star wars. But i guess i didn't do it quite right. so everyone missed it. As for me being bitter, its an act. I'm not really that bitter.... actually its the other way around , I'm the optimistic one sometimes.
I used to be bitter about being jerked around and falling for that...multiple times.....made me feel stupid and thats what I'm bitter about...feeling stupid....

what happened to the girls before annie, i walked out of their lives, cut them out of my life, ignored them. not before i told them exactly how useless, boring and inconsequential their pathetic lives were. (like i said I was bitter back then). My mom when she brought me up, by the way she behaved, left me with a deep, unbreakable respect for women. I would never even in my worst moments consider hitting or otherwise hurting a woman, in anyw way.
and by the way, Uillean, take out your own garbage yourself.

Mrm? No, I wasn't assuming that at all - nothing is ever perfect. I was just expressing my relief that things need not be as bad as that list implied (even though it's apparently meant to be humerous (I take everything seriously and at its word (yet, people online tend not to believe or trust me))), that more enlightened girls|women wouldn't be as... what word do I want...? Well, you understand. The list just scared me and, having had no experience, couldn't disprove it, but hoped that it wasn't all true. And that hope was founded.

But then again, my little hint there didn't really work either, so I guess we'll have to call it quits =)
