Don't be a single mum: Guy slammed for absurd tips on how to keep a man

It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you're looking for dating advice, you probably shouldn't turn to Twitter.

The social media platform is awash with trolls ready to shred you to pieces for any number of reasons, but most likely just because it's a day ending in 'Y'.

And if you're still not convinced, allow me to point you in the direction of a tweet currently doing the rounds on the site, in which a guy shares his top tips for women on how to keep a man.

Warning - his words may induce feelings of disgust and outrage, especially if you're not keen on being told how to behave.

In his viral tweet, he tells women there are six ‘simple’ things they can do to keep hold of their man.

These include:

"1. Learn how to cook amazing dishes.

2. Be feminine (long hair, make-up, nails, etc).

3. Don't nag him over trivial things.

4. Be debt free.

5. Don't be a single mom.

6. Know how to please him in bed."

More than 8,000 people have commented on his tweet, with some branding him ‘sexist’ and a ‘misogynist’.

One person replied: "You're single, aren't you?"

Another said: "Please tell me this is a joke. If not, congratulations, you win the price of 'Prat of Twitter'."

A third added: "How to spot a misogynist in these six steps."

Others began sharing their own advice.

Don't nag him over trivial things

"How to keep a man in four steps," wrote a different user. "Get him good and drink, invite him down into the cellars for a nice vintage, entomb him there where only the walls can hear his screams, he belongs to you and the bricks now, forever."

A second tweeted: "How to keep a woman in six simple steps.

"1. Don't.

2. Be.

3. This.

4. Guy.

5. Right.

6. Here."
