And from what I've read, a few thing guys should know about themselves ;-)

1 A man designed the first toilet, where do YOU think he designed the seat to go?

2 A man thinks about sex every three minutes; how often that involves YOU, is up to YOU.

3 There is always another woman. You just haven’t given your man a reason to go out looking for her, yet.

4 Don’t cry to me about your bad-boy boyfriend. Dump him and we’ll see what we can do.

5 When you say, “Does this dress make me look fat,” He’s thinking, “She wants to fight.” (GUYS THE REAL ANSWER IS: NO DEAR, THE DRESS DOES NOT MAKE YOU LOOK FAT, YOU MAKE THE DRESS LOOK WONDERFUL.)

6 When he dances with his beer bottle in the small of your back, then you know he’s let you between him and the thing he used to adore most.

7 If you say, “Either that __________ goes or I do!” Don’t be surprised if he says, “Has it always been that easy?” And hands you your bags.

8 If you ever need “some space” you’ll find it in a moving box along with a one-way ticket out of my life.

9 If you give us a gift of a table saw and expect a new armoire, don’t be so disappointed when we give you a gift of an iron and expect our laundry done.

10 NEVER call us at a Men’s Club. They wouldn’t tell you if we were there even if we were.

11 Don’t try to change me to your liking the way I change my personal computer. In the first place there are parts stores for computers and there are no parts store for guys. There are parts stores for women, though. I’ve seen those parts.

12 Yes, I actually do spend more time tweaking my computer than actually using it to work on other things. Do you have a problem with that?

13 If it doesn’t involve our toys, don’t ask if we notice anything different.

14 If it does involve our toys, you’d better not ask if we notice anything different.

15 Of course I don’t understand you – I’m a man!

16. we don't care if you fake it, we are not faking ours and that is all that really matters.

17. if we hand you the map, it is only to keep you busy while we concentrate on the road. We are not really paying attention to your directions.

18. when other guys burp and fart it is hilarious, when girls do it it is disgusting. Girls aren't allowed to be disgusting.

19. we only find it funny until someone gets hurt, then we find it hysterical.

20. it don't matter how long it sits without moving, we love that old car in the backyard.

21. we will always fix it someday, but someday never comes.

that is just a little taste of what is to come........Z

Lucky for us, ours matter to most guys.

That's because you can't think about or do more than one thing at a time.ever.

If men weren't good at fixing things and squashing bugs, we wouldn't need you at all.(paraphenalia and banks would do just fine)

Guys are jerks and girls are bitches. Why can't we just come to terms with that and all get along?

Besides, I find that the stereotypes usually don't apply. I've never given a gift in the expectation of receiving an armoire (good sex is another thing entirely).

Although . . .

Yesterday I cut my hair. It was really long and eight inches was taken from it. Now it is just below the shoulder. When my husband got home I pranced around him waiting for him to comment. But he just complained about his day. I told him, "You're suppose to be the zen master (he prides himself on noticing the small things) - don't you notice anything different?" He began searching the room. "What? What did you do?" he asked.

It was the same with every other guy I talked to although every woman I saw was like, "Oh, you cut your hair."

It sort of reinforces my stereotype that men only notice T and A and electronic stuff. But I'm sure that doesn't apply to everyone.

<flame-shield>Course, not sure why you had to cut it in the first place :P</flame-shield> j/k, this has been done to death already =)

Guess I'll have to get my hair cut a bit one day... though I won't be tripping over it quite yet.

I had to cut it because I'm a girl and girls who want to look professional can't have long hair, particularly when it is very blonde (except that it was turning darker from long exposure to basement environments, although I think the light from my computer screen helped), very thick and has a tendency of going "amazon" without any hair spray at all.

I miss my long hair, but this hair is good, too. Freud once said that a woman's hair length is compensation for the fact that she doesn't have a penis. Freud was an idiot. . . But still, hair is important.

dragonman97: Hehe, nice one. Hrm, shaving, what was that all about? Remind me again...

Pistolero: Um... Slip-ups in reading do happen. The question is, did the thought excite you, concern you, or what? Why did you read the topic? Try to gauge your reactions to it - that should help answer your question. As long as you were not excited or otherwise stimulated in a suspect way by the idea, then you should be OK. Curiosity itself is fine, helps us make discoveries :) (Except of type "Ooh what does this big red button do?"... (unless you are also curious about life six feet under)).

BasementDweller: Yes, I've noticed that. But then, did you follow suit just to feel like you fit in, or would you literally be denied opportunities without a haircut?

This is surely a form of discrimination (*awaits Latin geek to provide a convincing-sounding name for it*) that you can fight? I guess you just can't be bothered. I'm a man with long hair, and I'm rather concerned that I might face the same problem. I'm not sure what I'd prefer, the obvious convenience of short hair, or to lose the identity I've made for myself (and given my life, I really do value the areas in which I've succeeded in establishing my own identity).

Hell, long hair just looks nice, but admittedly the reasons for keeping it do include my theory that I've added feminine elements to my appearance to make up for the lack of female companionship and romance in my life. That isn't why I grew long hair (that's another daft little story) but is probably why I'm keeping it. But then, if things were better, I'd have a girl in my life and then I'd not want her to have her hair cut.

Hrm

Uillean - What is a uillean? It sounds like some weird welsh word. Anyway, I did cut my long hair because of, er, complications. First, One CFO for a company I contracted with, thought that a lap dance for him should be included in the contract. Women gave me dirty looks and some men gave me even dirtier ones. I would always wear it in a bun with glasses and try to look as librarian as possible - but I guess it wasn't working. With a shoulder length cut, I look cute, but in a don't-mess-with-me sort of way.

As a male geek with long hair you are fine. People will respect you - they will say, "He's eccentric!" Which really means, "He's smarter than me and therefore can do whatever he wants." Although, there are probably some codgers out there who would take offense.

Thing is women don't even have to be attractive, you know. There are some things some men have cued in there minds as "signs" that she is loose or something. One of those is long hair.

I just looked up your name and I wasn't far off, although it's an irish word. So, do you play the pipes?

The [not] shaving thing was something of a sign of support for not cutting hair - something of a protest against the idea that cutting one's hair is necessity. That, and it was eight-something in the morning, so I don't always make perfect sense then. Additionally I save a few minutes by not shaving, and more importantly, hope that there are other women out there like snupy, who like a little bit of stubble. I don't think a beard or mustache would work for me, though I've let it go for a bit a few times. I just shaved today, when I stopped at home for lunch, just because I thought I might as well - I won't shave until Sunday probably - it can be unnoticeable for a little bit anyway, except under my chin, where it seems to grow faster. I should probably get an electric shaver - any words of advice of good ones, anybody? I've been thinking about the Panasonic Linear razor, or the newer one that self-cleans - though I wonder what cleaning is required of the charging stand, and how often.

Quoting BasementDweller:
Uillean - What is a uillean?
Hehe, wrong spelling, but that is how I used to spell it (and is my mac.com name). And no, I don't play the pipes - just like their sound. It'd be nice to play them, but if I had any willpower, I think other geeky things would take priority, such as learning to program for Carbon. I've gone oh so soft these last few years.

I did cut my long hair because of, er, complications. ... lap dance ... in the contract, ... dirty looks... There are some things some men have cued in there minds as "signs" that she is loose or something. One of those is long hair.
*frowns* [Two considerations: one: I'm still naive and inexperienced in the realities of life, and two: I'm in south-east England where things might be different to where you are.] I'm not familiar with this problem. I know that professional women (and in fact, probably most women it seems) have short hair over here, but I was never aware of a bias, or any such unpleasant prejudices. Most unfortunate indeed, and I'm sorry to hear that. Of course, this is all based on my personal preference for long hair, because I just find it very attractive. Well, sometimes. I see a lot of long hair in forms (e.g. curly), condition (e.g. manky), colours or general appearances that I dislike, but I still prefer long hair on girls. However, when right, not only does it look nice (and I think I concur with whoever said it "frames the face" in a previous topic) but it can also carry a youthful (implying happy and fun) connotation (though other attributes help determine whether that is the case or not) - probably actually something to do with the fact that older women tend to have short hair here.

Even so, if I met someone I liked who had short hair, I'd probably be able to accept that, but still, long hair on other girls would be a distraction to me, a continual reminder of unfulfilled dreams and desires.

As a male geek with long hair you are fine. People will respect you...
Actually, I think this is again different where I live. I'm not sure that long hair is that well received over here. Maybe once I become part of reality, I'll be able to tell you.

uilleann: ...shaving, what was that all about? Remind me again...
dragonman97: The [not] shaving thing was something of a sign of support for not cutting hair
Hehe, sorry dragonman, you misunderstood me - it was a joke :) I was referring to the fact that I don't shave much, and was pretending I'd forgotten what it was about. I do shave, every weekend or other, just to remove the whiskers from all over my neck and cheeks and return my beard to its tidy order. I'd shave every day, in fact, I'd eat breakfast too (and check e-mail/ICQ), if I could ever get up on time. Getting to bed too late at night has finally finished that. At least I'm arriving at work on time at the moment...

I should probably get an electric shaver - any words of advice of good ones, anybody?
No idea whatsoever. I've had a Braun for years, I'd not rave over it, but it works and that's all that matters I guess. No-one feels my face, so who cares?

... one that self-cleans - though I wonder what cleaning is required of the charging stand...
Eh? Hrm, this is not one that's on a wire? I like the sound of that... the distance down to my wall socket is a long way... :)

Actually, I knew it was unlikely that the two I was thinking of were by the same company. The self-cleaning one is by Braun. I just noticed from their site that it requires replacement thing for the base every so often that contains the stubble - that may rule it out, but it still looks like a cool concept. [I just looked it up - you need to replace them every 30 shaves, and a 2 pk. costs US$9.99 from drugstore.com.] Otherwise, I'm thinking about a Panasonic, which may be cheaper.
And even without shaving, I'm still a little late for work. But I work in a flexible place, and I invariably work a bit late, so I make up for it, and my boss usually never gets in before 10, and disappears for stretches of time - but I will still be noticed by the others in my office, one of whom kind of does day-to-day management, with my boss usually just floating about.

I don't get what was said about the whole long/short hair thing either. In areas I've lived (DC, Utah, etc) Short hair is more conservative and professional for both men and women. Of course when I say "short" for women I mean "shoulder or less"

I think "Conservative" sums it up very nicely from my perspective, i.e. dull and boring. Professional business people in dark suits and conservative haircuts, and minds full of meetings of the bored and other nonsense come across to me as some of the most boring people on earth. I assure you I'm not looking for that in a potential mate!

I think the problem lies not in more casual-looking people looking "unprofessional", but this idea that "professionalism" is all about severity and boredom.

My boss breaks those traditions, in that he's a very nice guy, wears light-coloured suits (e.g. pastel green) and smiles all the time. Yes, he's the director of corporate e-business at the university, but he doesn't have to look like a corpse to do it :)

That would involve "sex" being listed 15 times, though, right?

And, a dissappointing response. There is more to sex in relationships, a lot more, and I would hope (and, in fact, know, fortunately) that there are guys who see this.

16. Men are like computers, our brains can multitasking only if we're not using all our computing power on one item. If I'm concentrating hard I can't listen to you at the same time. Wait for me to take a break and then jump in and get your piece.

17. We're not superhuman. We CAN and DO get hernias from trying to lift things you can't. Just because I may be stronger DOESN'T mean I can move that refrigerator by myself.

18. Don't call car repairs, home repairs, electronics, and lawn care men's jobs and then tell me I need to help clean the house because their no longer just a woman's job.

19. Work bonuses from my job are because I've put in a lot of effort at work, their is no reason you need to buy another @^*&$@#*&^ knick-knack.

20. Just being near you and enjoying it is enough. You don't need to talk the whole time. Remember: Silence is Golden.

21. DOILES SCARE US.

Meanwhile back at the hair thing. I will have hers long please. {Sing along now... "Gimiee a head with hair. Long beautiful hair..."} No woman's looks have ever improved with a short haircut. When a woman gets compliments on her new short hair style from men they are mostly lies. I mean the hair is gone what are you going to say ? My you look much uglier now ? And I LOVE your new jail house tattoo too. Long hair is worth at least 2 points on the 1-10 beauty scale. If your long hair is a detriment professionally get good at braids. I once knew a girl for more than a year before I discovered she had ass length hair. Verry nice when she let her hair down. I happen to be in love now with a girl with shortish hair and a LOT of tattoos. Go figure. TORD

And, a dissappointing response. There is more to sex in relationships, a lot more, and I would hope (and, in fact, know, fortunately) that there are guys who see this.

Yeup, like the roaches had said, the guys like that are just in hiding, like myself, heh....

TORDONOFFON:
Hrm, difficult one. Personally, I share the basis of your opinion, that long hair looks better. I won't go so far as to agree with the idea that long hair always looks better - this is a matter of every person's own preferences, and such preferences can vary widely.

It does bother me - the person for whom my feelings have been strongest in recent times has short hair, and despite the fact that it seems to suit her, I still think she'd look better with long hair. She complains that it's too heavy to grow long and I think I know what she means to an extent - my hair is, but I'm keeping it long anyhow :)

The problem I have is that, even if I met someone and fell in love etc. and she had short hair, I'd probably feel some deep longing to see her with long hair, that would trouble me, like it has done already. I have thought about a compromise - switch over - have her grow her hair long, and then let her accompany me to the barbers and have her choose me a more respectable guy's haircut (and have me join the grey masses of similar-looking people ;).

Much as I hate the idea of not crossing bridges until you come to them (which to me is a coward's way of getting out of being prepared), in this case, it really is something where I'll have to wait and see.

Let's hope the girls who appreciate guys with such views are not also in hiding, else they may never be found :) They aren't all, as you've fortunately discovered.

heh, what do you take me fer?

Uilleann, regarding shaving or lack thereof, I now fully follow . Since I haven't shaved in the last few weeks, I stand a better chance of getting into work on time, or am less late. I have not bothered to get a fancy shaver, and continue to use my Mach3 blade for occasional touches. It's so nice not having to think about it, and/or get held up in the morning. Though I'm going to let it go for a while more, even if it needed a little trimming, it wouldn't been an absolute necessity to do it before work, allowing me to go through the insane rush act of getting up around 8:20 AM and having to be in work at 9:00 AM, with a ~15 minute commute - though I really should get up earlier.

P.S. This was only posted since this thread was brought back to life by someone else.

Grr, what in hell's name is going on... selective images (most smileys, others' posted images, and now the post reply and post new topic images) aren't appearing. Image loading is on, and it isn't the filter manager gone wrong...

Sorry, just had to rant ;)

Ah, not shaving... hehe, ah, well, I'm getting in late to work, and I mean very late, often these days, through lack of sleep generally attributed to these here forums of which I am an addict :) Oops :p

But I did shave this weekend, fi-nally...neat beard for another day or three...
