Excellent points. Man toys are definitely more expensive.

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

An old fellow once told me the difference between men and women when it came to money.

A man will pay 2 bucks for a 1 dollar part he needs. A woman will pay 1 dollar for a 2 dollar part she doesn't need.

No reference was made as to which is better, but I could sorta see where he was going with it.

As a side note, anyone that thinks man toys are more expensive than women toys needs to define "toys". Let me tell you ladies and gents, diamonds aren't cheap.

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

I think toys can be defined as those things that make life more pleasurable but are not a necessity, such as a pleasure boat or a diamond.

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

I'm inexpensive to keep.

I don't need the fluffy (more expensive) toilet paper.
I can go months on pizza or PB&J sandwiches.
I don't need a cell phone, and I don't think I should be paying for one for a 28 Y.O. son, just so mama can get him to call.
I like smaller boats, she needs the "room".
I don't need new clothes, unless the old ones NEED replacement. The other half and I disagree with when old clothes need replacement. I say, if a pair of shorts has a hole in them, who cares, they already have at least three other holes. The same goes for t-shirts.
I don't need Channel number anything, just some deorderant will do, thanks.

However, I AM a royal PITA to my wife, but I'm worth it, at least to me.

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

Monetary costs are much less than running a woman. However, the physical and emotional labor involved can often times be extensive. I don't need much in the way of things that cost money, however my admiral does do things for me that I wouldn't do for anyone. She is an amazing woman

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

I costs nothing to run a man. Just get on your PMS mood and you will make man run.
