Gentlemen, listen up — this one is for you. There are a few things all of us share as men. There is the obvious reproductive organ, which oftentimes does more thinking for us than our brain in an average day. There is the fact that we refuse to put the seat down after peeing. And most importantly, there is the man code, which is the common denominator among all men.
First is the frequently used term “Bros before hoes.” Don’t worry ladies, we don’t actually think you are hoes; we just really appreciate a good rhyme. If a man has the choice between hanging out with his buds or his girlfriend, he is obliged to choose his friends. This rule, believing to go back to the cavemen era, is to help protect a man from losing one of his most important assets — his best friend.
Girls come and go from a man’s life, especially in college. But a man’s best friend is like a rock amid the tumultuous sea of women. That is why he must always come before the current lady in one’s life.
However, there are definite exceptions to this rule. If a man makes plans with his girlfriend in advance, she has priority to that time. It is very rude to blow off a girl, and a best friend does not warrant such behavior.
Major anniversaries are also reserved for girlfriends, since guys wouldn’t have them to hang out with if
they missed these sacred dates — and I’m not talking about those lame two-week anniversaries.
Sticking on the topic of female interactions, a man should never “cock block” another man. For those women still reading, this is when a man gets in the way of another man who is trying to get with a girl. A man should only help his friend get with a girl. Hurting his chances in any way is unacceptable.
Once again, exceptions do arise in select circumstances. If a girl looks like an orc from “The Lord of the Rings,” then not “cock blocking” would be the true crime. If your friend is hitting on swamp monsters, then it’s probably time to take him home.
It is unacceptable for a man to openly like a chick flick. A guy should only see these if he is trying to woo a girl. The only other exception is if he is in a relationship or has recently committed a wrongdoing. And the girlfriend must always request to see the movie.
After every round of golf, a man must take off his hat and shake hands with the other players. There are no exceptions, even if you lost miserably. And a beer at the clubhouse is encouraged, but not required.
