These are some of the responses I have gotten so far. Thank you all for keeping me going here.
>From an older female type!
Not bad, bucko, not bad at all.
Fortunately we are not all tarred by the same brush!
Married 5 years ago, both now in our 60's and both single for over
It can work out sometimes, especially if one has an offbeat sense of
humor, as do both of us! Simply look at life from an oblique angle,
Subject: What to do if you manage to ignore your own rules
(Not like I have ever seen that happen)
Just make sure if you ever decide you really want wife #4 have the ceremony include "anyone who knows why these two should not wed speak now or forever hold their peace". If the wife-to-be can sit through the long lists of responses and still wants to say I do you might have actually made a good choice.
Had to stop laffing before I could even begin to type...LOL The only
thing ya got wrong was the comments about red heads!!! We just enjoy
life and most dont know how to! LOL
Thanks for the laffs and I will be back soon!
Subject: Redheads LOL
LOL Well then you outta luck cos I am redhead LOL But I relly did enjoy
the page so much LOL and so have ALL of my female friends. We spent
hours talking about it....made for some interesting conversation!!
Everytime one of them started to read it we all started to laff over and
over again...and of course they all loved the redhead rules cos they
know me soooooo well.....take care and have fun LOL
Subject: a comment or two
My first response to reading all of your rules was pure and simple
laughter - I was agreeing with you all the way up to the age rule -
(born 1967) anyway, I have a similiar rule so I do understand. I
having never been married - never planned on getting married - though,
if it happens one day - so be it - but I have things to do right now so
I will consentrate on those.
I have a list of rules about men as well, one I actually sat and thought
about for a long time. For some, it may sound crazy to have have rules,
but those who have no rules have either been fortunate enough to end
relationships in a way that was unscathing or they don't date much and
have yet to learn.
(Come to think of it - those without rules are probably the people that
made those of us with rules, form the rules we follow)
I suppose all of us have some things we like and do not - what you may
hate about a woman - another man will find inspiring. If that was NOT
the case, everyone would want the same person.
I enjoyed your list, and perhaps I will compile mine and send it to you
so you get a laugh or two also. That's what it's all about - if "you"
are not laughing, then "you" are doing something wrong.
Take care and good luck, Jill
Subject: Hi! :)
I loved your web page. Hmmm....figure that and I am a woman born prior
to 1960. hahaha... Being married 3 times you must have heard it all.
Just dont let them fool you. I have only been married once and I am now
divorced. By the way, you are right on most of the things you said.
Sorry to say...I think this is why I am beginning to think all the good
ones are taken. :(
Subject: LIST OF RULES
Being a woman with a good sense of humour, I just wanted to let you know
how much i enjoyed your page. Too bad so many people have lost there
sense of Humour
Keep on laughing
Subject: Continuing Education. *L*
What a hoot of a webpage!! I am educating myself through the Byrd
Truly... I have laughed and laughed... good job!
I wanted to tell you that I loved your page.... it's really funny! I hope
you didn't have to learn ALL of that from experience. You must be battered
and bruised if you did.
If you re-named the page 'brydlady rules', I would be your disciple. This
'byrdlady' is #62 and agrees entirely with #59.
By the way hurray! hurray! for #4 and #57
Anyway, yada yada yada..... just had to write to say I really had a good
laugh and thanks for your page (you're the only person I've ever replied to
so.... bend over while I put the medal over your head..... (note I said
medal.... not halo.... wouldn't want to choke ya!).
bye from Kim
Subject: comments from Becky
I have laughed at this web page so much. I called my 22 year old daughter to come read this also. We have laughed together and feel so much better for finding this site.. I am almost computor illerate but do have the ability to use this machine as a word processor. I have had so much fun and laughter that I can begin to understand why so many people seem to be obsessed with this thing that I have felt just used too much time. I think I will apologize to my former husband for feeling that his computor was my competition and his mistress. Now wouldn't it be ironic that what I once hated so much became an enjoyable friend. I guess life is wonderful in the aspect if one remains open minded, one can continue to grow in all areas of one life.
I find that I really love the stage of life that I am at.. I have enjoyed myself most all the times. I tell others that are fearful of growing "old". " I am in the first half of the second half of the best half of this wonderful thing called life."
I am going to share this site address with some of my friends and will come back again myself. Keep up the good work....Becky
Nice one, could go a bundle in different uniforms and a pack of needles,
No. 1 - Worked in a vehicle testing station and shagged eveything in
trousers whilst she drained the bank account
No.2 - An inspector in the Police force ... yes I know ... I didn't realise
they are not human !!
No.3 - Just got divorce ... didn't think to mention it .... another very
stressed out wacko !!!
No. 4 - No WAY !!!
Catch you later.
Subject: I Am Still Laughing!!
I found your site when I was looking for information on Ex-Wives. I
have this huge desire to learn about them, as I have just gotten married
to an Ex-Husband. I wanted to satisfy some crazy urge to prove to
myself, in my own head that *YES* all Ex-Wives are psycho wenches with
an appetite for destruction. I found your "rules" particularly amusing!
I wanted to comment on rules # 44-45. My husband was cheated on by his
Ex-Wife and I have decided that if he only would have listened to her
when she told him some of the things she did, he would have forgone a
lot of heartache. Yes--Once a cheater, always a cheater!! Thanks,
Byrdman, for compiling these rules! I definatly got quite a kick out of
Subject: some women beat the odds!!
Too funny and I have flowered dresses, a tiny waist and red hair but I
thought it was very original and incredibly witty, a cop friend sent it
to me, a friend from high school days..it is really good!! way to go
Subject: Thanks for the laugh
ROFLMAO...someone referred me to your site....I am laughing so hard at
your concept of women. Poor baby you have had it rough...and I bet you
didn't have a thing to do with it...LOL. Thanks for the laughs. You
are a cutie...you better find that right woman...but dam who can live up
to all those rules......Thanks for the fun page....but I think I'll pass
on the dolls.....unless of course you supply male ones. You are just
well I like your little list and it is true you seem to know me better than I do...at least under the rules i qualify....you're a very smart man....gee never thought I'd say that!
while I am female let me tell you something:
your rules are verrry funny and while some of them are unfounded most
are quite true and very well put. I look forward to reading more of
them. Keep up the good work...and good luck in all romantic endeavors.
Love the rules. If I ever find myself wanting to date again, I'll
remember them. Know anybody who wants a dog or two? LOL
Loved your homepage, it was a blast to view, I received on a url, Keep it up, you deserve more awards, and I will certainly pass on. Thankyou Ginger
P.S. I am happily married and no am not interested in being an ex. Ha Ha
But did enjpy your page
Cute, Here are mine. If a man doesnt have.....
1. a car
2. a drivers license
3. a job, any job
4. is over 40 and lives with his parents
RUN LIKE HELL.......Do not attempt to date him for you will never get
rid of him.....
Smiles. Thanks for the laugh.
It was an interestign insight.... but true in some cases.... but pretty warped in others... all in all.... very insightful..... that u could come up with all these rules are amazing... thank you for sharing... it brought a smile.....
i like the part about why women say they love u... it reminded me of this phrase...
"men say i love u to get sex
women give sex to get love....." interesting don't u think?
nite.. have a nice life whoever u are
Ah poor MR Byrdman you are such a sad case, you really must start reading your ruleson a regular bases, you just can`t seem to learn that once you see through one of our ploy`s we just make up a new one. Anyway loved it ,it made me howl with laughter, must be my aussie sense of humour,but really loved rules 55 56 57 59
Regarding Rule #60 -
Some of us look so good that a few extra pounds just don't matter. As for the
glamour shot, well what the heck is wrong with having the potential to look
As for Rule #64 -
If you (and this is speaking to all men, not you personally) would jump up
and cover me with kisses every time I walk into a room, well maybe I'd love
you like I do my dogs:)
P.S. Pictures of my flowered dress collection can be found at http
That's it? Where's the explanation about the flowered dresses??
And what about remote control usage? Toilet seats up or down? Bowling
night with the guys? You have a lot more work to do, Byrdman!! LOL
LOL, we should add rules from me...I have been known to pick lousy ones!!At
No flowered dresses here, just underwear.
I see now, how you came up with your rules. Yes, you would be a tired boy
by #99, I can see that now! Viagra got on the market just in time, huh?
Good luck in your pursuit!
Byrdman sweetie....I LOVE YOU...(hehehe) I'm a Redhead born in 1961, I have a current PICTURE (honestly I do) I really enjoyed your page and sent it on to all my online "Friends" and told them what "rules" to pay specific attention too. #25, #49, #60
Can't wait for more rules to be added.
Have we been burned a few times? I liked your page but have a somewhat
softer outlook on dating. My rules are easy: I don't date women who are
taller than me. <I'm 5'10"> I don't date women who weigh more than me. <I'm
160 lbs.> I don't date women who have more body aor facial hair than me and
the most important one....I don't date women who can beat me up.
I was very impressed with your rules...You either have dated 100's of
"wrong women" or you are very picky. You never did explain the flowered
dress rule #4. Did the "BIG" flowers mean full figured women or in
Byrdterms FAT women? Otherwise, very funny. I have a list of rules also.
Mine is not as extensive as yours, but it works.
I do have to say that I broke one of your rules right off the bat. You
figure it out.
Yes I woud like a list of what you feel are the differences and perhaps the similarities between the sexes. I note the changes you have made and have enjoyed reading them. I also enjoyed your lirics to the songs. One was especially touching.
