does it REALLY work when men break the ice this way, or do you all think a guy who does this is a weirdo?

I'm pretty sure it has to do with dropping something on the floor and still getting to eat it....

Not sure that's what the OP meant.... but I was always told we had five seconds.

I hate it when they change the rules and don't tell us....

Sucks getting older.




EDIT: Damnit Soul.... you beat me to the punch line. Freakin' whipper snapper......

I'm at a loss and I don't feel like hitting up Google.

OP, what the hell is the 3-second rule?

I'm sure I'll regret asking, but wtf....

This is what I found...this mystery guy sure gets around, doesn't he...

The "3 seconds rule" was coined by Mystery, a PUA and regular poster on ASF. The point of the 3s rule is to propel you to approach women fast enough to keep your internal voice from talking you out of it and avoid hesitation. You do not want a woman to see you hesitate. The longer you hesitate, the more insecure and sappy you appear. Also, hesitation creates an added sense of nervousness to your mental state - a personality trait you do not want to portray when approaching women.


and it continues on....

Isn't that what us oldsters used to call smiling and starting a conversation with someone you found attractive?

Same old, same old, with a new buzz phrase coined for it, if I've got the concept correct...

*runningfromtheforumsscreaming*

RULES!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHH! I can't take it anymore!!

3 second rule.... no hesitation
5 second rule.... no nooky after she says no or you get charged with rape
30 minute rule.... how long you're supposed to wait if your date is late
3 date rule.... no nooky before then or some will consider you a sl*t
6 month rule.... don't say I love you before then or you're considered desperate
6 year rule.... if you don't love someone by then, get the f*ck out


Wait... there's a mailing list?? Wtf?? No one told me!! Waaaaaaa..... now I gotta start a thread about that?!?!

I take rules as something to be broken.

So, if a dude employs the 3 sec rule, I might have to break his... nose?

Rules, noses..... same same.... Man Bat please...... *THWAP* .... hits OP squarely on the back of his head.....

What do I think of the three second rule? I'll let ya know when you're conscience again...
That's what ya get for hesitating....

Dumbass rules for players that can't be genuine....

I hope you're awake OP. That was my answer.

^^^ Yo, lady.

The rule is that you have to return the ManBat within the three seconds.

Or, get your own freaking ManBat... I am tired of everyone using mine.

Tho.... seems like the MoronBat would have been better...

for the original 3 sec rule, ever watch MythBusters, they have proven that it doesn't matter how long it lays on the floor, whether 1/2 a sec, 3 sec, 5 sec, 20 sec, etc (within reason of course, 3 months is a little long) it will pick up relatively the same amount of bacteria from the surface it landed on...and certain foods are worse than others...don't eat the meat! ;)

Huh??? Mind cluing us all in on this? Or is this one of those questions we women get from SOME men and then get the ole "eye roll" when we don't understand? Mind drawing us a picture while you're at it??

Manbat, phooey! I just went out to my garage and retrieved my extra piece of rebar.
~she now wields the rebar and lays it squarely across OP's forehead~ WHACK

RC... did you have meat for dinner again? You're extra feisty tonight...
Ahem....that WAS my Man Bat.... notice the space between the words......

bullie knows better than to step over the boundaries of ManBat usage!!

Rebar.... he he he..... DING DING DING............... we have a winner!!

Three second rule: Don't eat it, return it immediately if borrowed and never EVER let 'em see you swing.
