The Platinum Rule is the rule above the Golden Rule. The golden rule being "love thy neighbor"; the platinum rule is "never ever, ever, ever 'love' thy neighbor" (have sex or intimate relations with them).
The Platinum rule comes from the Bro Code Article 83: A bro shall, at all costs, honor the Platinum Rule: Never, ever, ever ever "love" thy neighbor. In particular, a Bro shall never mix it up romantically with a co-worker.

The 9 Stages of the Platinum rule are: Attraction, Bargaining, Submission, Perks, Tipping Point, Purgatory, Confrontation, Fall Out, and Co-Existance.
Attraction: Getting attracted to the person(s) you see on a daily basis
Bargaining: Saying that all would be alright and the Platinum rule will not apply
Submission: Giving in to the relationship
Perks: Noticing the upsides to the relationship
Tipping Point: When you notice that it won't work out
Purgatory: The never ending suffering that will follow
Confrontation:Ending the relationship
Fall Out: A reaction, a bad one, from the confrontation.
Co-Existance: Learning to live with that person(s)
Such relationships will never work out and will go through all 9 steps if its with someone you see on a daily business.
Anthony: Hey I'm gonna take my doctor out on a date tonight!
David: Don't poop where you eat Anthony.

Anthony: What do you mean?
David: The Platinum Rule.
Anthony: No, this doesn't count.

-A few weeks later-
Anthony: You were right. This relationship was a total failure.
David:The Platinum Rule is proven once again.

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.
