We live in a world where society has high expectations and we are conditioned to behave in a way that fits in with social norms. This goes further to apply to gender, where in which we come to the infamous unwritten rules of guy code. Check out these hilarious snippets from the guy code and see if you follow them too!
Every male should know and religiously follow the toilet laws or should I say urinal laws. If you do not know what this means then you have probably made a few others feel fairly uncomfortable when sharing a public restroom break!
If you did want some clarification on what these rules might entail, then number one would be to NEVER engage in conversation whilst using public toilets.
Guy code very much links to unwritten gym rules, this goes for not hogging gym equipment, not wiping the equipment or being generally annoying!
Guy code has its very own set of greetings, if you have no idea from this alone then you either 1. Aren’t a guy or 2. Need to meet a few and start taking tips!
Boys Come First
Lads come before any girl, they will always be there but the girl might not be sticking around! Make sure you do not ditch your lads over a ladette.
Prank Within Limit
Pranks can be absolutely hilarious but there is a very thin line where they then become beyond painful and past the limit, which is well demonstrated by the cast of Jackass.
Guy code reads you must be able to give and take banter, even if it is ridiculously harsh! If you can dish it out then you must be able to take it too because at the end of the day it is a joke.
If you get a phone call from your mates girlfriend confirming that your mate is with you, then you always say yes even if he isn’t. You side with your guys and always have their back!
Have Other Lads Backs
Even if you don’t know the guy, guy rules read that you should always have another lads back; we all need to stick together and be a united front!
Guy code means you can never hit on, ask out or cross the line with a mates girlfriend or ex girl friend. Even if their ex is a solid 10/10 this rule must never be broken… without permission.
Eat Like A Man
No guy orders a salad, guy rules means eating a lot and a lot of that is probably meat! Whether it’s a cheeky nandos or a giant steak you will be following the guy rules accurately.
Its Better Out Than In
This applies to all bodily noises, smells and general functions. Often along with this comes appreciation from other guys, this rule can make some exceptions if you are on a date or relationship under 2 months.
Never Read Instructions
Never and I repeat never read instructions. Instructions separate the boys from the men and only when you’re at the point of desperation do you give into the 3 page booklet that would of simplified everything.
Never Have Directions
Men don’t need directions or to ask for directions, we simply just follow our senses and even if we take one wrong turn (or 20) we will eventually arrive at our destination without the help of any map which is a great, manly feeling.
For all men, boys and guys alike, we all have to live up to being as manly as possible! Some go further than others and others go way to far! However, in summary whether we compete to be the manliest, that is ultimately the most important rule.
