The Points System: How To Make Women Happy.

So, I was doing some digital housekeeping when I found this old article from somewhere. With a little editing and polishing, I present to you:


Pay attention guys, I suspect this is pure gold.

Now, in the world of romance and much of what happens on the way there, only one single rule applies: make the woman happy. Sorry guys, they lied. It’s not a man’s world. And yes, Beyoncé was right. Girls do run the world.

So, this is how it works: you do something she likes, you get points. You do something she dislikes, you lose points. And no. You don’t get any points for doing something she expects. Sorry, that’s the way the game is played.

So here we go:

You make the bed (+1)
You make the bed, but forget to add the decorative pillows (0)
You throw the bedspread over rumpled sheets (-5)

It’s Mr. Biggs, they’re doing a promo, and you snuck in two six-packs of Heineken (-22)

    Very very funny. Even more so as it is scarily accurate! Not sure which one is my favourite but Tiffany and the movie night are genius. The exes section and the ‘am I fat’ response are also awesome. Thanks for a great read!

    As much as I agree with some, I dnt get why taking me to a movie he hates should have more points, why would I want him to do that, that’s plain selfish. I mean if he won’t enjoy the movie then neither would I, so I dnt agree with that 1. Also leaving a match *surprised face* and cup finals too *more surprised face* hey! Dats loving and all but we all know whr his mind wud be so why bother. Loll

    Then it”s impossible to please a woman- seeing you may lose 40,000. Points, and earn them slowly in 8-point advances. You WILL die indebted 😀
