Men Are Just Happier People-- Your last name stays put. The garage is
all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just
another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can
wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water
park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You
never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is
just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a
nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding
dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when
you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is
practically expected. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about
tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all
your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of
thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be
your friend.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more
than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are
unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays
its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
You can play with toys all your life. Your belly usually hides your big
hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes one color for all seasons.
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can "do" your
nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing
a mustache..
You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25
minutes.
No wonder men are happier.

We always hear "the rules"
from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are
our rules!
Please note... these are all numbered "1"
ON PURPOSE!

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 complaining about
you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.
Let it be.

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 on this one: Subtle hints do not
work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help 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. 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 won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to
act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are.
Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways
makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done.
Not both. If you already know best how 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 and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach,
for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no
idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say nothing," we will act like
nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the
hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you
don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is
fine...Really.

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to
discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch
tonight; but did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

We men will do our best to be logical. they won`t admit it, but females don`t really want that. For the longest time I would be so confused when my girlfriend-wife would come to me with a problem; i`d give a solution that solved that problem. She still wasn`t happy, so they`d be another problem; give solution - still not happy.

they don`t really want the problem solved, they just want someone who`ll empathise and `agree` and all that, yet after that they`ll still say, "So what are you going to do about it?" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Oh and don`t ask a girl how to treat other girls. I did this in my youthful 20s...
"treat them just how you`d treat your m8s," she said in a very `we must all be equal in how we treat men and women way`.

Well, that`s easy, I thought, treat girls just like I treat my m8s.

Theres actually some logic in what that girl told you, you see if you approach a really hot girl and talked/treated her the same as you would with everyone else, shed be taken off gaurd.....as most guys will probably treat her like some walking god or something....

The best way to get a girl is to let her get you.

When I was a child Unkle Gunter told me "A man chases a woman until she catches him." This is so true. Never treat a woman as you treat your mates. Simply be friendly and respectful. Show you have no expectations and that you can take or leave her. This makes women very curious about you. It also stresses a beautiful woman´s confidence.

When they say "Treat her like she´s one of your mates" it means treat her with respect and as an equal, just like you do with you mates. Headslocks and ribshots are not exactly what a girl is looking for in a man, excluding LeBillfish of course. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Think about it. Women like to hang with gay men. Why? because he will treat her as an equal and she knows he has no expectations. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Let the girl come to you. They know their game well but can´t recognise it when you play it on them.

Do like you do with you buddies, listen and contribute. Women want you to focus on them.

Still, I´m happier cause we have women.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Nah.

Treat women like you`re not after them, like you don`t really care that much. My problem was I did indeed tend to idolise women a bit - another big mistake.

Make jokes, even slightly offensive ones -as long as you indicate with a laff or two - it`s the initial surprise that you`re different in your approach that gets their interest- and don`t push too hard. Then later get their email... And take it easy, no rush.

I disagree with waiting for them to go to you. Many times they`ll want you to go to them, then go through the `mating ritual` palavah.

Oh and sure, slapping `em on the back, farting in their presence and insulting them (in a blokey way), don`t work... But I was 20... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You can only do that after 6 months, but let them do it first. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

You are right about the jokes. Women love it when a man makes them laugh. Women simply want to feel comfortable. When they fart and slap you on the back, you know they are comfortable. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Men have toys, women have emotions.

We love it when our women take interest in our hobbies or games. When our better half gives us something that goes with our hobby, we feel good.

We have to return the favor and pay attention to her feelings and thoughts. They love this. Just like women and our hobbies, we don´t have to understand, we just have to try.

Had to weigh in on this; the only 'successful' arguments I've heard about battle of the sexes if the participants are all exclusively men, or exclusively women. In such cases everyone walks away feeling satisfied: where the participants are mixed, each party(s) walks away grudgingly thinking his/her side won, but no one is the clear victor.

Always thought it was amazing that such intense verbal fire-fights could be started with such obviously pointless arguments. I agree with the previous posts: both have thier advantages, and true we cannot exist without each other. Unless I feel like I'm spoiling for a fight (or argument) I wisely avoid such topics around me wife http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Just keep one thing in mind...you didn't do anything to deserve being born a man. I like women, don't have any trouble with 'em. Been married to the same wonderful woman for coming up on 30 years, wouldn't have done it any differently. When you think of the lot women around the world have been handed, you better thank your lucky stars you were born a male. Consider that in some cultures you can be killed by your husband for the lamest of reasons or burned to death because the idiot you're married to decides, after that fact, that the dowry wasn't enough...yeah, how many would choose to be a woman if given the chance?

Try this:

"Princess, men and women are very different. Equal(emphasize the equal) but different. Where I am weak, you are strong. Where you are weak, I´m strong. We may never understand each other but as long as we keep trying, we´ll be ok."

Yea, but I`ve yet to see a female you could really go `low` with ( that you don`t intimately know) without her slapping you around the chops. there`s always a point when you`ve gotta stop, unlike with ya m8s you just go on until ya fall into a drunken stupor.

I probably would: the general idea I got from looking at the "Who are we" thread are that most folks who enjoy this game are mid to late 20's through 50 years old, who like history and aviation. I fall into the middle somewhere. Guess that's why I am suprized when ever I see some threads go sour because a couple of people take to flaming forum attacks. True, part of the sim is agressiveness and competitiveness, but it's more fun than only that (IMHO).
