      • Julio Xhulio Vasiu

        • Matthew Malpeli

          It’s writers like you that motivate me to avoid lists.

          • Xhulio

            That makes not sense, You’re an idiot.

      • True !

  • bakamonosan

    Only 37? I need more rules telling me how I can be a ‘good man’. Without them, how can I possibly become a good man?

    • zoumonkie

      Read rule #1

  • MGTOW 4Ever

    Don’t cheat on your SO.. Lol how about no SO and I get to keep my money.

  • Bob Jennings

    Number 1 seems counter-intuitive to listening to the rest of the 36 rules…

    Some of these are not bad but some are horrible. Nice clothes at the gym, come on bro I am there to get swole not network.

    • Chris M

      I belive nice Clothing mean nice Gym Clothing and you never know when you are going to meet some one who could change your life

      • keyplayer

        a jock and shorts — what else would you need? Unless the gym is run by Martha!

    • K

      #38. never use the word swole

      • Bob Jennings

        swole bitch… SWOLE!

    • Wha?

      Swole? Yea #38 for real. Lmao… swole.

      • Bob Jennings

        I always wonder if people who don’t get sarcasm are just stupid or oblivious.

  • Realms

    I agree with most of these. Except I travel alot and do take a selfie every once in awhile. Its a generational thing. Also I prefer a wallet over a money clip.

  • Law ‘n order

    What exactly is a money clip, and why would I want one in addition to the wallet I need for credit cards, driver’s licence, etc?

    • TripleT

      More Organized. It is also big enough for you to carry all the necessary plastic you need.

      • Cobra Starfunkel

        I don’t know I’d rather use a wallet, I don’t like showing off all the money I have every time I need a dollar. Your just trying to impress people by doing that.

  • John

    There’s too many “don’t”s in this post. The brain thinks in “do”s. Thinking in “don’t”s just makes you think about the habit you’re trying to stop. a lot of goals fail because they involve trying not to do something. This seems like a trivial semantic difference but it makes all the difference to your brain, because you can either prime your subconscious for failure or accomplishing concrete goal. “don’t” is too abstract.

  • stumbler


  • Zeke

    Don’t tell me how to live my life

  • Big T

    #30 and #33 are repetitive. Other than that, not a bad list.

  • Chris

    Good list. Asides from 17, 29, 34, 35 and 36. Religious/Spiritual talk can be interesting with the right people. There is no reason to read the newspaper, it’s quite an outdated method of news, and wastes a lot of paper, and a lot of news is bullshit anyway. And the last three I mentioned, are just about materialism and looking good to impress other people, completely unnecessary.

    • Cojonas

      Totally agreed, sir !

  • Meh, not a good list.

  • Julio

    7 Today, 8 tomorrow and than all 37. Little by little.

  • Simpleman

    Never talk about religion? Then the gospel dies. If that’s the premise for the list, I’m out

  • Tallwheel

    If she has a job, then she’s damn well paying her half of the bill.

  • ZePreem

    Man this is a bag of boner cheese.

  • ZePreem

    Man this is a bag of boner cheese.

  • Mr. Malone

    Rule #38 take a college level writing class and learn how to make a list that isn’t redundant
    Rule #39 if you want people to take you seriously don’t post poorly written lists on the internet that call attention to your lack of truly knowledgeable skills

    • Michael

      #40. Don’t be a douche.
      #41. Learn how to give constructive criticism.
      #42. Merry Xmas.

  • Pepe

    A lot of the entries in this list are actually quite oudated. There are a handful of good ones but in general, this is just propaganda.

  • Nice list! Thanks for sharing. Do you think you’ll add any more?

  • jb

    This list contradicts #3… You’d get more women if you follow these rules… Where is hygiene in this list

  • Girius

    The “White Knight” rules about being subservient and paying for women are only going to get you used in life. Otherwise, this list is just a self-important windbag being a self-important windbag.

  • shahanur

  • joe bisq

    this list is made by a woman

  • Flamingjockeyz

    These are just rules for life. None of these are specific to males. The whole thing seems kinda white knight-ish too. I half expected them to say “and don’t forget to tip your fedora at any female you are interested in.” at the end

  • Harry Xing

    Never talk religion with anyone. Keep it to yourself.and dont worry about the prepubescent boys sodomised by priests.The disease of religion, well, it’s reall none of your business and we don’t want to upset anyone , do we?

  • Ahmed Bibouda
  • Kevin Hazan

    38. dont read online how to live your life.

  • #3 needs to add husband. 😉

  • acgogo

    – don’t be an arrogant repressed poop.
    – learn some humility.
    – it’s ok to be vulnerable with those you trust.

  • acgogo

    ….oh, yeah and love is THE most important thing you will ever experience. Cherish it.

  • Amazing advice I will keep this not only in mind but favorite & bookmark his.

  • Wha?

    Rule #1 A cigar and scotch doesn’t make you a man. They look like they’re playing dress up.

  • MM

    Some of these were contradictory and sound like they were written by a 17 year old who thinks he has life figured out.

  • We agree on a lot of what is written here
