Again, I didn't write this list, lol....

Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?




30 things every man should have by 30, after the jump.

  1. A skin care regimen. C’mon guys, healthy complexions aren’t 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 there’s 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 driver’s license.
  20. Always enough toilet paper.
  21. Sheets that don’t scratch.
  22. A nightstand that doesn’t say “Handle with care” on the side.
  23. A smile he uses generously.
  24. At least one lamp that didn’t 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 “hello!”)
  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 he’s received lots of positive feedback on.

Ditto for my hubs. I consider skin care in the shower a regimen for a man, LOL. I like my manly man with good skin... but not sure I could stifle laughter if he had night cream , eye serum and microdermabrasion on the bathroom counter. ;o)

Not so sure about the last one.  If a guy has had a LOT of feedback on a sex move, I want to know if he comes with penicillin.
