The five toughest questions for men are:
1. What are you thinking about?
2. Do you love me?
3. Do I look fat?
4. Do you think she's prettier than me?
5. What would you do if I died?

Each question and answer has the potential to explode into a major argument, so here - as a public service - are some things not to say as well as the appropriate response.

WRONG: Baseball.

Question 2: Do you love me?
WRONG: Oh yeah, loads.
WRONG: Would it make you feel better if I said yes?
