One user shared, “Guy code: when greeting someone and you’re not sure if they’re a hugger, always shake their hand first… it allows them to throw up the other arm for a hug if they’re down for it.”

When Moving

A user recalled, “The person who buys the shots makes the toast. Too often, I’ve seen someone buy a round of shots, and someone else jumps in with a toast If you want to make a toast, buy a round!”

A top-liked comment said, “If you’re a stranger, particularly a guy, only compliment the things you wouldn’t get slapped for touching. Hair/clothing – great. Facial feature/tattoo – maybe. Boobs/butt – keep your mouth shut.”

Bathroom Use

One commenter added, “If you offer someone a beer or other alcoholic beverage and they turn it down, I never push it. Sometimes I don’t want to drink, and I hate being pressured. Never pressure a drink on someone.”

Buying A Meal

A top-liked comment said, “Everyone wants to feel important and the center of attention sometimes. It’s ok to make your friends and loved ones feel special by talking them up whether they’re around or not.”

Hands Off

A poster commented, “Don’t bang someone your friend is deeply invested in. Even if it doesn’t go anywhere, it’ll create resentment in the friendship.”

A Helping Hand

Someone added, “Girl code: if something is fixable within five minutes (make-up, something stuck in teeth, small things on appearance), you tell her and help her if needed. If it isn’t fixable on the spot, you keep your mouth shut and, ESPECIALLY, don’t point it out to others.”

A Hair Tie

This person said, “If you hear a girl say she needs a hair tie, if you have an extra, hand it over—also, not a bad idea to carry bobby pins for similar purposes.”

Have Their Back

This commenter stated, “Always have your boy’s back in an altercation/fight/argument. I’m not saying 100% of the time. Sometimes people do dumb sh****t and deserve the consequences. But if the need arises, you should have their back. Even if it just means stepping up beside them to look intimidating.”

Side To Side

A poster added, “On the more lighthearted side, in my experience, when you hug another girl, you always try to slot the boobs by going slightly to the side so that you don’t just mash your chests together and hurt someone.”

Only One

One user said, “You can have the last beer. You can have the last slice of pizza. You can’t have both.”

Public Crying

A commenter shared, “⁠If you have a tampon or pad to spare and someone needs it, even someone you hate, offer it to them. Nothing worse than needing and not having!”

Out Of A Jam

A top-liked comment said, “⁠If a girl looks distressed or uncomfortable with a guy hitting on her at the bar/club/venue you’re at, she will now be a new crew member! If you see it happening, try to catch her eye because she’ll be looking around. Once you make eye contact, it’s easy to figure out if she needs an out, swoop in, and do the whole “Hey, girl! Where the crap have you been? We’re all waiting over at the table for you!” And then you hook your elbow through hers and walk her back to your table of friends.”

Caught Em
