Well I'm a bit old fashioned. I'm king of my castle and I do wear the pants. My wife doesn't work, I do etc. If you don't like it, I can give
you a free map to the door.
Many of the points made are true and funny as a result. But I have 5 golden rules. Might not be pretty, but it's the truth.
1. Be Honest
2. Feed me
3. Do me
4. Clean House
5. Shut up
The more and better you do at these 5 things, the better off. Now, these are a bit overly blunt and such, but as long as these 5 things in order I
will not have many if any complaints and will overall be happy. If you do these 5 things, I'll probably stick out anything else.
1. Honesty. This is a big one. I can't stand to be lied too, and I'm pretty good at detecting a lie. Not only do you insult me by believing I
would actually believe it, but if I can't trust you then you will be out the door period. This includes any "make me feel special" games you may
want to play. I have no time for a BS relationship. If the things I do for you doesn't say it, then words never will.
2. Feed me. Pretty self explanatory really.
3. Once a day for 5 days is better than 5 times in 1 day. I know there are times when you want it more than once a day, that is fine. But I'll
still be expecting it somewhat regular. It is good for my health, relieves stress and just in general brightens a guys day up. Not that it
"has" to be everyday or even every other day, but you get the idea - the more the better usually.
4. I like a clean house. I'm not going to get mad if it's not spotless all the time, but ya know in reason etc. Never really had a problem with
this, usually they want it cleaner than I care about.
5. You talk more than you realize. I'm glad you are enjoying what you are watching on TV or whatever, but I don't need or want the play by play.
There is probably a reason why I'm not watching the same thing. Yes, I do try to listen and I do listen way more than you realize. But there is
a limit and eventually I will say so. I do NOT always ignore you. I do not point out every single time I listen to you, so just because you point
out every time I don't doesn't mean that it's all the time.
The other stuff mentioned is pretty much true too, just a bit more in detail. But these are my golden rules. Keep these rules and outside them you
are pretty much free to do what you like. You can buy the curtains you like, the towels you like, the dishes you like, pick the flowers in the
front yard, watch what you want, decorate the house like you want and on and on and on - all yours and deciding those things seems to make you way
happier than it ever does me, so enjoy them.
And btw, the no wives/gf's at sporting events and poker games is not "my" rule. It has nothing to do with "you" personally, but if everyone
brings them, then the entire thing becomes something completely different and so the rule exists. We can still do those things, but for some reason
you only really want to do them if I'm about to do it without someone else. Refer to #1. To be honest, it many exists for whipped slave boy
"Brian" who will end up spending the entire time making "her" happy and not being able to have fun. If you are "Brians" wife, be happy because
I wouldn't put up with you.
