Breaking Guy Code is a serious violation on anybody's account. It's a breaking of trust amongst friends, and is incredibly difficult to come back from.
Just a few days ago, a video surfaced of what appears to be Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young speaking candidly about his relationship with rapper Iggy Azalea. He admits to cheating on Iggy with a 19-year old. Young and Azalea got engaged last June. Ouch.
What he was unaware of, was that it was being recorded by his Lakers teammate, D'Angelo Russell (a rookie, nonetheless). Now, under no circumstances is it ever OK to record a person without their consent. Especially if they're a teammate. ESPECIALLY if they're revealing sensitive info.
Mr. Russell probably didn't have a Guy Code guide in front of him to let him know what the violations were, but relax, we at FlockU have you covered. Here are the 10 commandments of Guy Code.
Thou shalt not date your friend's ex.
This is a no-brainer. The thought shouldn't even cross your mind. Even if he says it's alright-it probably isn't.
Thou shalt not date your friend's mom.
Thou shalt not cockblock.
Another no-brainer. Blocking someone else is by no means a guarantee that you're gonna get in there either.
Thou shalt not trash another man's name to get with a girl.
Not only is it corny, but immature and unlikely to lead anywhere.
Thou shalt not encourage someone to date a girl you KNOW is bad news.
Huge breach of trust, and should never be done for any reason.
Thou shalt not diffuse sensitive info without verification of facts.
Also known as being a "Chatty Cathy." Grown men should not be gossiping and throwing stuff out there without confirmation.
Thou shalt not bring your significant other out on a guy's night.
This is a serious vibe killer.
Thou shalt not play slows jams when passed the AUX cord.
Are you trying to incite memories of long lost ex's?
Thou shalt not masturbate in another guy's house.
Even taking a dump is more socially acceptable.
Thou shalt never speak of a friend's infidelity.
Cardinal rule of Guy Code. It's none of your business. Volunteering of information is strictly forbidden, and even when interrogated a simple "ask him" will suffice. You're not being asked to lie, just do not speak on it.
*Unless the friend's girlfriend is also a friend of yours. Then you are free of all Guy Code restrictions related to this stipulation.
