The Points System

For everyone out there who just can't figure it out, here it is... In the world of romance, one single rule applies:

MAKE THE WOMAN HAPPY.
Do something she likes and you get points. Do something she dislikes and points are subtracted. You don't get any points for doing something she expects.. that's the way the game is played.

Here is a guide to the point system.

SIMPLE DUTIES
You make the bed............ +1
You make the bed, but forget to add the decorative pillows... 0
You throw the bedspread over rumpled sheets... -1
You leave the toilet seat up... -5
You replace the toilet-paper roll when its empty....0
When the toilet-paper roll is barren, you resort to Kleenex... -1
When the Kleenex runs out you shuffle slowly to the next bathroom.. -2
You check out a suspicious noise at night... 0
You check out a suspicious noise at night and its nothing... 0
You check out a suspicious noise at night and its it's her father... -10

SOCIAL ENGAGEMENTS
You stay by her side the entire party.. 0
You stay by her side for a while, then leave to chat with a Uni drinking mate... -2
Named Tiffany... -4
Tiffany is a dancer.. -6

HER BIRTHDAY
You take her out to dinner.. 0
You take her out to dinner and its not a sports bar.. +1
Okay, it is a sports bar.. -2
And its all-you-can-eat night.... -3
It's a sports bar, its all-you-can-eat night, and your face is painted the colors of your favorite team... -10

A NIGHT OUT WITH THE BOYS
Go out with a pal.... -5
And the pal is happily married... -4
Or frighteningly single.... -7
And he drives a Porsche... -10

A NIGHT OUT
You take her to a film show... +2
You take her to a film she likes.... +4
You take her to a film you hate.... +6
You take her to a film you like... -2
It's called DeathCop3.... -3
You lied, said it was a foreign film about orphans.... -15

YOUR PHYSIQUE
You develop a noticeable potbelly.... -15
You develop a noticeable potbelly and exercise to get rid of it... +10
You develop a noticeable potbelly and resort to loose jeans and baggy Hawaiian shirts.... -30
You say: "I don't give a care because you've got one too".... -800

THE BIG QUESTION
She asks, "Do I look fat?" You say 'of course not' without even looking.... -5
You hesitate in responding... -10
You reply, "Where?"..... -35

COMMUNICATION
When she wants to talk about a problem, you listen, displaying what looks like a concerned expression.... 0
When she wants to talk, you listen for over 30 minutes... +5
You listen for more than 30 minutes without looking at the TV... +10
She realizes this is because you've fallen asleep... -20

You've missed out...
'Does my bum look big in this?'
Only possible answer.
'No, it looks b****y enormous'.

Re: The Points System

This is reminding me of QI where everybody ends up with minus points!
