    The Gender Manuals ... time to spill the beans

    I suppose at this point we've all heard of the "manual".
    Pick your gender and there's an 'unofficial' rule book to follow. Topics from dating, to FWBs, leaving toilet seats up or down.
    From the girl perspective I can clue you in on a few topics, although to be honest, there are things that are really only discussed in the company of other women.
    Men (reluctantly) will likely agree. (Reluctantly agreeing is one of the 'guy' topics ... so I've heard.)

    The catalyst for this thread comes out of spending way to much time in the Competitve Cyclist website looking for new knickers. The catalogs writer is a modern day Will Rodgers, something akin to J. Peterman.
    this item had me roaring: http://www.competitivecyclist.com/ro...705_FALSE.html

    So my question, GUYS and GIRLS ... What can you share with us from your genders 'manual', without giving too much away?
    Litespeed Siena, Campy
    Peugeot U010, Deep V's in orange and fixed
    Bridgestone X03 - the beer bike
    Waterford R2200, Campy Chorus/Super Record Cobaltobrakes
    Motobecane Tandem - Craigslist find
    Belgium Bertin. an angel spared it and sent it my way.
    Fuji Folding 4130 Mountain bike - Marlboro edition trash find
    Specialized HR -A1, latest trash find (who throws bikes out??!!)

    The reason to hold the door open for a woman is not chivalry, it's the view.

    Will Rogers wore knickers? cool.

    I treat women with respect, just like my father taught me, and hopefully how I am teaching my sons.

    Last night, my six year old stood beside his chair at the dinner table until my wife, his mother, sat down. You should have seen the pride in both their eyes.

    I've come to realize two things about the differences between men and women:

    1. Women call what they do as they round 40 "maturing" while they call what men do a "mid-life crisis."

    based on the above...

    2. As men enter their "mid-life crisis" they want to be married to the woman they married years before, while women want to be married to some guy they imagined that they could turn the man they married into.

    Of course, that was just to draw her attention away from the whoopee cushion he had so carefully placed upon her chair.

    Manuals have such a good plotline though... The characterization is very good. Setting in general needs help, but that's how the genre works.

    1. Women shop, men buy. Watching my wife in a store moving every hanger 3 inches to the left is not my idea of a good time.
    2. My wife doesn't trust me to dress myself so why in the world does she ask for my opinion on her clothes?
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    1. If you think the way to a man's heart is thru his stomach, you're aiming just a bit too high.

    2. If a man gets out of the car to check his tires on one of your first few dates, he's out there farting.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    The toilet seat being up is not rudeness...it's a form of subliminal morse code. Invariably the code reads: "Honey, we need to buy a urinal." I assume women leaving the shower/spigot selector on the bathtub to shower randomly so I get blasted with icy water first thing in the morning is probably their verison of it as well (and I suspect it says "Stop d**king with the toilet seat").
