30 Things Every Man Should Have By 30.

I was listening to a show on the radio this morning and they were talking about this. Here is the list.

C'mon be honest which ones have you not done yet.


1.A skin care regimen. Címon guys, healthy complexions arenít just for metrosexuals!

2.A tasty signature dish he can whip up for a date.

3.Respect for women as equals and not just as heads attached to boobs.

4.At least four good pairs of shoes: dressy, business casual, casual, exercise.

5.At least one friend who gives honest fashion advice.

6.A tailored suit.

7.A toolbox that includes: a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, nails, work gloves.

8.Enough clean underwear (no holes!) to get him through a week between laundry sessions.

9.Independence from his mama.

10.The ability to ask for directions.

11.A great road map when thereís no one to ask.

12.A favorite cookbook.

13.A decent set of pots and pans.

14.An emergency kit in the trunk of his car.

15.A hobby that does not include a television set or a 6-pack of beer.

16.A trusted barber or hair stylist.

17.A pair of jeans that makes his butt look good.

18.Jumper cables.

19.A driverís license.

20.Always enough toilet paper.

21.Sheets that donít scratch.

22.A nightstand that doesnít say ďHandle with careĒ on the side.

23.A smile he uses generously.

24.At least one lamp that didnít once belong in a dorm room.

25.Enough confidence to approach someone he finds attractive.

26.Enough sense not to use a cheesy pick-up line. (When in doubt, say ďhello!Ē)

27.A great razor.

28.The beginning of a nest egg.

29.A place where everyone knows his name.

30.At least one sex move heís received lots of positive feedback on.



Ok #1 No I still have issues with #3 but I'm really trying and No 12, 14, 16.

Re: 30 Things Every Man Should Have By 30.

So a radio station read a made up list of things someone "should" have?

Ok
No its a talk show on the radio that found this list online on an article someone wrote. They had guys call in and they would ask them certain things on the list. They were just having some fun with it. It wasn't meant to be serious lighten up.

I only have 10.

However, this list sounds like it was made up by a head attached to boobs.

7.A toolbox that includes: a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, nails, work gloves.

Re: 30 Things Every Man Should Have By 30.

Nothing about weapons, jumping off or out of really high things, no going at ludicrous speed, no major crashes in various vehicles and no criminal activity... This is not a list for a man.

I've been perfecting my signature sex move for decades. "The Bando" always leaves the ladies quivering and in tears. That's good, right?
