(no subject)

Mostly, The Rules For Guys is just a standard silly parody of The Rules, an equally silly but more respected way for women to play hard-to-get. The point is that the authors think this will get them married quickly, probably to somebody they can easily push around for the remainder of their lifetime.

But it (the parody) has a lovely section at the end. The idea: get a copy of The Rules, find out for sure if you're dating a Rules Girl, and since The Rules are cultlike in their admonitions to keep following them no matter what, use the fact that you know their strategy already.

I love it.

I also didn't know that "Don't tell your therapist you're using The Rules" was in the official canon. Good to know.
