He answered, “It’s simple…I’m looking for the same things you’re looking for. You find yourself back where you started…in estrogenville.

The guy you once looked at with a bit of resentment for not calling doesn’t look like as big of a jerk.

In fact, for all of the guys you know, you seem to have a bit more compassion for them, because you are more aware of the things they are walking through.

MTV2's Guy Code is the ultimate guy's guide to the laws of manhood. Some say guys are born with it, but not everyone follows the same set of guidelines. Guy Code has been discussed on screen in "Old School", "Jersey Shore" and inadvertently analyzed on "Animal Planet" when discussing the customs of male species.

But to date, no show has created a playbook for all guys to follow. Need to know about everything from man-scaping to man-crushes, wing men and sexting, the rules of drinking, karaoke etiquette, and more?

What do fairy tales and romantic comedies say about guys?

They should always dress nice, have a nice home (a horse and carriage is a nice perk), never be grumpy, be the perfect balance of sensitive and masculine, able to beat up 1 to 40 guys all by himself if need be, and, oh yes, he must always leave the toilet seat down, because he is the most thoughtful and caring man alive. I Hate Fairy Tales backs this up with a personal story of how he once bought his ex-girlfriend 12 roses.

A guy may be interested in a girl and still do and say nothing. Because guys believe there are more factors to consider than feelings. One of the guys explains a time when he was bold enough to ask a girl out, but she said no.

The no itself was hard for him to take, because he really did care for this girl, but what happened is that this girl went back and told all of her friends and they began to review all of his strengths and weaknesses.

His own relationships always ended in pain, and he was much better at so many other areas of his life.
