We all know Barney Stinson and his entire gimmick with women. He is a dating mogul and this made him somehow qualified to give us good theories and, in one way or another, passable dating advice.
Here are some of the most useful principles and theories of the best suited man ever, Barney Stinson:
The Freeway Theory
Barney is kind of right about this. If you are in a relationship, there would be exits that provide you with cliché lines because it has come to the unbearable.
The exits are the following: 6 hours, 4 days, 3 weeks, 7 months, 1.5 years/18 months, 18 years and if you are lucky and found the one, DEATH. LOL.
The Hot/Crazy Scale
When you are dating someone, it is always okay to find out that they have a little craziness inside. The point here is she must be as hot as she is crazy.
Well, whenever you’re single and want to date again… Honey, don’t ruin it for you.
The Lemon Law
It’s funny that this is really advisable. Stop dating someone whom you know will never be interested in you. It is such a waste of time dating people whom you know you’ll never get to be with. This is what the Lemon Law is.
If you are meant to see each other next time, then you’ll surely know if something’s in there within just 5 minutes of talking and observing.
The Mermaid Theory
You know when people say that an attractive woman and an attractive man can never be platonic, it is true. This is why we don’t let our boyfriend/girlfriend have a friendly date with their single straight friend. We all know this but we can’t explain it…
This is how it is explained:
So…… Let’s move on!
The Platinum Rule
This is just too good of a rule that it deserves to be here more than any other rule. Article 83 of the Bro Code says that, “A bro shall, at all costs, honor the Platinum Rule: Never, ever, ever “love” thy neighbor. In particular, a Bro shall never mix it up romantically with a co-worker.”
It only means that going out with someone you’re with all the time is not a good idea because if the relationship collapsed, it will be the end of everything you used to do and like.
No one’s necessarily saying that you should follow Barney and his arguments but c’mon, the man in the suit has a point.
