As a lady, I do not know what goes into guy code, so this post from u/MrSourYT was quite illuminating! He asked the “Men of Reddit, what are some unwritten rules we have?” and the replies were so wholesome and sweet, I swooned my way through it. Obviously some of these will cut all ways, gender notwithstanding, but still. It warms my heart to see people do these things for the others they care about.
When your friend’s crush is around, he is the funniest in the group
2. No way
Don’t throw a friend under the bus to impress someone. Ever.
3. Walking behind a woman
When walking upstairs behind a woman, the stairs instantly become the most interesting thing.
“Hmmm, these stairs are really made out of stairs huh”
4. Keep it safe
when you’re strapping down a strap, you must say “that’s not going anywhere” or you will lose everything on the trailer
The best test of a friendship is when you defended someone in their absence and vice-versa.
Whenever your friend is cooking on the bbq, you have to stand next to him and talk about how amazing this food is gonna be
7. Don’t keep track
If a friend buys you a drink you don’t pay it back you just buy the next round
8. Let him flirt
If he’s flirting with her, we don’t interrupt untill he takes a piss
9. Safe space
Don’t poke fun at the way a man makes his income.
10. Few words
A grunt and a nod is an entirely acceptable conversation.
11. Seriously. This is all you need.
Beer and pizza/BBQ is acceptable payment for helping another man work on his house or vehicle.
A big bag of soil, dry dog food, or rice must be slapped.
You can have a beer. But not if it’s the last one.
14. Bathroom etiquette
If a bro holds the bathroom door for you, don’t screw them over and take the last urinal.
It’s is essential that we pee away the small bit of shit on the side of the toilet bowl.
As soon as the house is empty( family depart), upstairs we go to de stress, giving the rest of the day the freedom and clarity it deserves.
Don’t be scared to give compliments, we keep them in our “permanent memory” area.
When having a heart to heart with a bro. Don’t keep it too serious remember to also joke and make your bro smile.
19. The nods
We nod down when we greet someone. We nod up when we meet someone we know.
20. Just buy TP
For those that live with women: No matter what you are going to the grocery store for, just buy toilet paper.
