Definitions for "A woman's guide" posts

In reference to this series the following non-alphabetical list of fast-and-loose definitions shall apply:
1)      Sex (noun with hopefully verb like qualities): an arousing social encounter between two or more optimistic individuals during which the genitals are, in some fashion, pleasantly engaged...or not unpleasantly engaged...whatever floats your boat
2)       Relationship (noun):  a) you at least know the person’s first and last names, b) you have demonstrated a desire to know more c) you’ve had sex, d) you still don’t regret “b)” or “c)”, e) you’re pretty sure they feel the same and f) ground rules have been set for the initial level of monogamy.
3)      Man chore (noun phrase): Domestic duties that a woman will seek a man to perform. While the installation of home electronics falls under this purview, these tasks are more often than not relegated to scutwork which combines at least two of the following three attributes: a) doesn’t require much intellect, b) labour intensive, c) filthy. Taking out the garbage is a superlative example of a delegated ‘man chore’.
4)      Pseudo-boyfriend (noun): A single woman’s male friend who performs the tasks and duties in her life which would otherwise normally be associated with a boyfriend or husband, except sex. A single woman’s “might-as-well-be-eunuch” substitute boyfriend. A single woman’s male friend who does man chores for her and to whom she will (if she’s honest with herself) rarely, if ever, consider reciprocating.
5)      Chivalry (noun): Archaic. Replaced by the word thoughtful in the new millennium so that women would feel okay about being “chivalrous” toward men.
