Attraction and dating information for all men

Rules For Single Women, Revisited

Note: I posted this way back in February. As my blog was quite new back then, this post didn’t get a lot of attention. I think it’s worth revisiting:

I stumbled across this and thought it might make for some good reading.

Share it with a link, please.

  • If you think all men are pigs, expect to live alone when you get older.
  • Prince Charming is gay
  • Rich, attractive, nice – you can only pick two when dealing with single men.
  • If you ask a man on a first date how much he earns or what kind of car he drives, he gets to look at your bare breasts while you are still in the restaurant.
  • If you answer your cell phone during a first date, he has the right to immediately get up and leave with no explanation.
  • Choosy and “stuck up” are closely related.
  • If you expect a man to pay for everything, you’ll need a strong jaw and a good tongue.
  • Perfect men don’t exist. Good men are everywhere.
  • The karmic retribution for putting good men into the FriendZone while getting hurt by bad boys is to become bitter, angry, and the owner of at least three cats.
  • You are not a princess no matter what your T-Shirt states. If you really think you are a princess, then you’d better have the body of a stripper, the face of an angel, and the personality of a saint. Even so, only Prince Charming can marry a princess and Prince Charming is gay.
  • Your single girlfriends don’t want you to have a happy relationship with a man, that’s why they’re single and always telling you to “never settle”. Consider this when listening to their advice.
  • A man won’t say “I love you” until he is 100% confident that you won’t use this against him. This might take years, be patient because men can be sensitive, too.
  • Taking the time to look your best is not optional. After all, if you can catch his eye then you can catch his heart. Being agreeable, pleasant, and happy will seal the deal.
  • Smiles and laughter are contagious and can melt any man’s heart.
  • The unintended consequence of independence is loneliness.
  • Excessive complaining is neither attractive nor polite.
  • You are entitled to nothing. However, you can expect rewards for working hard for something.
  • Before you say “it’s all his fault” after a bad date, look closely in the mirror.
  • It’s not always men making you unhappy. Don’t let bitter women convince you of that.
  • Being strong doesn’t mean being bitchy. Wise women have known this for generations.
  • You can’t have it all. Please have the good sense to realize this.
  • Compromise is not surrender, it’s what is necessary to have a good relationship.
  • Don’t expect men to fall all over you just because you are a woman. Men have learned Game.
  • There’s nothing wrong with looking feminine. Men like it.
  • If he doesn’t call you back, it means he’s just not really into you. Deal with it.
  • If you meet a man, don’t find reasons to reject him or things to change in him. Find reasons to accept him and respect him.
  • The common word in “drink whore” and “dinner whore” is still whore.
  • Sorry girl, it’s not all about you so you can change your T-Shirt now and grow up.
  • Many men would rather chase women, not girls, so grow up if you don’t want to be single anymore.
  • Given the current state of divorce laws, don’t expect any man to marry you. It’s not you, it’s just how things are right now.
  • Hanging around gay men won’t give you any useful insights about straight men. Frankly, always hanging around gay men is kind of creepy. Um, they think it’s kind of creepy, too.
  • No fat chicks” is the man’s version of “If you’re rich, I’m single”.
  • Winning a man is easy, keeping a man requires hard work.
  • Advertising “Bitch” on your T-Shirt or sweatpants won’t get you any dates. No man cares for that attitude.
  • Deferring self-gratification is a sign of maturity. You can wait until dinner even if you’re hungry now.
  • The real world is pushy, rude, and often unpleasant. That doesn’t mean you have to be the same way.
  • If you dress like a whore, expect to be treated like a whore.

If you like this list, please share the link far and wide!

  1. This is brilliant! A few of them are exceptionally on point.

    Advertising β€œBitch” on your T-Shirt or sweatpants won’t get you any dates. No man cares for that attitude.

    Do you ever read the words written across a girl’s ass and then get a nasty look for staring?

    My bad! If you didn’t want me looking at your ass, maybe you shouldn’t write words there.

  2. True. 85 percent. I wish I could get most of my peers to read this. And re-read this. And read again, at least 85 %.

    A woman could wade through a thousand articles on dating written by women for women and not get so many pearls of wisdom. Women get and give terrible dating advice.

    • Women get and give terrible dating advice for the simple reason that it gets them men who “try to meet them halfway” along with giving them lots of experiences, nights out and things.

      A relationship with someone she values would not have so much trouble. A woman who likes a decent man will either make time for him, try to set him up with a well put-together friend of hers, or both.

      Relationships become difficult only when one or both parties are not after the relationship.

    Thanks for reposting this gem!

  5. Awesome! Sharing via twitter. All of the “I am the goddess, coo-coo-ke-choo” women need to hear this.

    There is a matchmaker with a reality show on the Bravo cable network by the name of Patti Stanger, maybe you’ve heard of her. Her picture is here:

    She claims to have a real life matchmaking success rate of 99% (I’m not sure what she considers a matchmaking success), but on her reality show the success rate is much lower. Ironically, she is a failure in her own relationships (she wanted to be both a wife and a mother, but is childless and never-married at age 50). I think it is because she embodies many of the characteristics you condemn in your post: she’s rude, bitchy, has an entitlement complex, complains A LOT, etc.
    Anyway, I’ve learned more about relationships from this post (and TPM blog in general) than from watching several episodes of Stanger’s stupid show. Heck, she could learn a lot from you.

    • I am grateful for your positive comments.

      Stanger is a mixed bag of advice. She does tell the women to be more feminine. She’s pretty tough on the men, too. Regardless, she comes across as a hot mess on the TV show. Hell, email her and tell what you learned in the Manosphere!

  7. Co-signing this.

  9. I’m going to print this out and leave them as parting gifts if the date ends badly or she’s just so flat out rude, bitchy and reee-tahhh-ded, that I just can’t stand it. πŸ˜‰

    Ooops – forgot alpha texting


  10. The thing is, a lot of young women break the above rules and get away with it because they have sex appeal. But then they get older and these same women, breaking the above rules, are fat cows. Then a man REALLY notices the rules are being broken.

    Patti Stranger is a class A entitled bitch. And she is hitting the wall hard and fast, and no amount of Hollywood makeup is going to hide this.

  12. Hmmmm.

    This is definitely pingable. I’ve been in turbo post mode since getting home. Watch how the posts change when I go back to Florida. Lol.

  16. This needs to be on a billboard in Chicago where every woman that lives within 100 miles of this city can see it.

  17. PM is right. Make it go viral. The girls who need to read this probably won’t.


  18. Great advice. So many of these seem like really obvious tips that girls wouldn’t need to be told, but are still so often ignored.

    Thanks PM, tweeted. I have a 44 year old friend who’s a teacher, never married, and despite 2 degrees worth of ‘ejumacation’ she still hopes to find ‘Mr. Right’ and have a baby…I’ve given up trying to clue her in, it’s hopeless. Her current beau is a Mexican fella, nice, clean cut with a computer engineering degree from Mex who is trying to get Canadian status…..she doesn’t think he could be using her. She’s skinny and hot, but you know in an aging sort of way…getting preggers at that age is playing russian roulette with the health of your baby in my opinion.

    Oops I forgot to mention that this Mexican fella above is 15 years her junior….

    “Prince charming is gay”
    I laughed out loud when I read that

  22. all the input above is just a sign that feminism has got to its logical extreme, women are our counter point in life we need them for producing us and them,they are the ones that have been hoodwinked by the media which we profited by and created, they will only ever have the level of power that we give them because in the end we have the testosterone,the swing back to man power has come about from our invention of the internet it is man that is the great communicator not women they talk but have little to say,their domain is emotion something any man will acknowledge and we know that apart from sexual relief the thing we need the most is interpretation of our own emotional state and possible remedy of the problem if it exists,”how was your day dear?” is just as important a statement as “come on big boy, get that fucking cock in my pussy,oh yeah thats just what i needed” so relax a new cyberman is evolving better stronger faster and more clued up than ever before , be that guy because that is what women want i know because i`m a man

    • It’s called punctuation. Use it.

        Co-sign. I read two lines — not sentences, because there aren’t any — and gave up. I will never understand people who expect others to try to read their illegible streams of thought.
