    Trusting a guy is like jumping out of the 10th floor.

    You hope it won't hurt. But you know it will.

    16 Reasons Boys Don't Suck
    1. For reasons science has not yet deduced, their hugs just work better.
    2. Yes, they show off... but it's all to impress to ladies
    3. They're not nearly as harsh with the criticizing girls' bodies as girls are on themselves and each other.
    4. Without them, would we have the word "gnarly"? It's doubtful.
    5. When they see "Boys suck" T-shirts and message board threads, it breaks their tender boy hearts.
    6. Have you ever watched a boy watching a girl rummage through her purse? That wide-eyed, mystified look they get?
    7. You can borrow their hoodies that smell like boy + dryer sheets.
    8. If there's some pain in the butt thing to carry or open or fix or reach, they'll do it... eagerly, even, because it gives them a chance to flex their Boyness.
    9. They make great bases for pyramids, chicken fights, and piggy-back rides.
    10. Because you know how people say "Treat me like gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe once, shame on you; treat me like gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe twice, shame on me"? You can't complain about how much all boys suck because of how one or two specific boys treated you unless you TOLD them about how wrong they were. The reason he was probably such a jackhole to you in the first place was that he got away with it with ten other girls who never set him straight -- or he's retaliating against some girl who treated him like dirt. They have brains and they learn.
    11. Uh, Johnny Depp?
    12. They believe you when you tell them how you feel, even after you hurt them by not believing them when they're upset about something.
    13. Holding it against them that society taught them not to discuss their feelings is just as lame as holding it against a girl if she cries at inconvenient times. If you give them a safe way to express their emotions -- a way that they know they won't get yelled at or beat up -- they usually will.
    14. The part where their hair ends at the nape of their neck, when it's cut short, feels like puppy dog.
    15. At the end of the day, alls they really want is for someone to comment on their blog. Just like you.
    16. Girls lie plenty, too, hon.

    "Needing a man is like a parachute. If he isn't there the first time you need him, chances are you won't be needing him again."

    25 Things Women Should Know About Men:

    1. Men like to barbecue. Men will cook if danger is involved.

    2. Men who have pierced ears are better prepared for marriage. They've experienced pain and bought jewelry.

    3. Marrying a divorced man is ecologically responsible. In a world where there are more women than men, it pays to recycle.

    4. Men are very confident people. My husband is so confident that when he watches sports on television, he thinks that if he concentrates he can help his team. If the team is in trouble, he coaches the players from our living room, and if they're really in trouble, I have to get off the phone in case they call him.

    5. Men like phones with lots of buttons. It makes them feel important.

    6. Men love to be the first to read the newspaper in the morning. Not being the first is upsetting to their psyches.

    7. All men are afraid of eyelash curlers. I sleep with one under my pillow, instead of a gun.

    8. A good place to meet a man is at the dry cleaner. These men usually have jobs and bathe.

    9. All men hate to hear, "We need to talk about our relationship." These seven words strike fear in the heart of even General Schwarzkopf.

    10. Men are sensitive in strange ways. If a man has built a fire and the last log does not burn, he will take it personally.

    11. Men have an easier time buying bathing suits. Women have two types: depressing and more depressing. Men have two types: nerdy and not nerdy.

    12. Men have higher body temperatures than women. If your heating goes out in winter, I recommend sleeping next to a man. Men are like portable heaters that snore.

    13. Women take clothing much more seriously than men. I've never seen a man walk into a party and say "Oh, my God, I'm so embarrassed; get me out of here. There's another man wearing a black tuxedo."

    14. Most men hate to shop. That's why the men's department is usually on the first floor of a department store, two inches from the door.

    15. If a man prepares dinner for you and the salad contains three or more types of lettuce, you should be worried about him.

    16. No man is charming all of the time. Even Cary Grant is on record saying he wished he could be Cary Grant.

    17. When four or more men get together, they talk about sports.

    18. When four or more women get together, they talk about men.

    19. Men are less sentimental than women. No man has ever seen the movie "The Way We Were" twice, voluntarily.

    20. Most women are introspective: "Am I in love? Am I emotionally and creatively fulfilled?" Most men are outrospective: "Did my team win? How's my car?"

    21. If a man says, "I'll call you," and he doesn't, he didn't forget. He didn't lose your number. He didn't die. He just didn't want to call you.

    22. Getting rid of a man without hurting his masculinity is a problem. "Get out" and "I never want to see you again" might sound like a challenge. If you want to get rid of a man, I suggest saying, "I love you; I want to marry you; I want to have your children." Sometimes they leave so fast, they leave skid marks.

    23. Men are self confident because they grow up identifying with super heroes. Women have bad self images because they grow up identifying with Barbie.

    24. Male menopause is a lot more fun than female menopause. With female menopause you gain weight and get hot flashes. With male menopause, you get to date young girls and drive motorcycles.

    25. Men forget everything; women remember everything. That's why men need instant replays in sports. They've already forgotten what happened.

    Bacon is bacon... eggs are eggs... don't let those boys between your legs. They say you're pretty, they say your fine. Next thing you know... "that kid is not mine."

    3. If they put a man on the moon - they should be able to put them
    all up there.

    4. Never let your man's mind wander - it's too little to be out alone.

    5. Go for younger men. You might as well - they never mature anyway.

    6. Men are all the same - they just have different faces, so that you
    can tell them apart.

    7. Definition of a bachelor: a man who has missed the opportunity to
    make some woman miserable.

    8. Women don't make fools of men - most of them are the do-it-yourself

    9. Best way to get a man to do something is to suggest they are too old
    for it.

    10. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.

    11. If you want a committed man, look in a mental hospital.

    12. The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years. Even
    in biblical times, men wouldn't ask for directions.

    13. If he asks what sort of books you're interested in, tell him checkbooks.

    14. Remember a sense of humor does not mean that you tell him jokes; it
    means that you laugh at his.

    15. Sadly, all men are created equal

    If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache. Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that's not meant to be. Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy. If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends." A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend. Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is. Don't stay because you think "it will get better." You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better. The only person you can control in a relationship is you. Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, Why would he treat you any differently? Always have your own set of friends separate from his. Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up. Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later. You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within. Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...even if he has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less. Never let a man define who you are. Never borrow someone else's man. Oh Lord! If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you. A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you. All men are NOT dogs. You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is a two-way street. You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you...a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals...look for someone complimentary...not supplementary. Dating is fun...even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr.. Right. Make him miss you sometimes...when a man always know where you are, and your always readily available to him- he takes it for granted. Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need. Keep him in your radar but get to know others. Share this with other ladies..... You'll make someone SMILE, another RETHINK her choices, and another woman PREPARE.
