Understanding women 010: What she REALLY means when she says these things


She wants you to know that other men are interested in her and that you should appreciate what you have.

Men and women are very distinct creatures. While men have a tendency to be straightforward, women are often not so simple. Unlike men, women often use hints and insinuations to steer you in their direction, and when trying to understand what they really mean, you are sometimes better off reading between the lines. The following cheat sheet will help you learn how to listen to your womanand bridge the gap between what she says and what she means.


1. “Fine.”

This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right.


2. “Just give me five minutes.

If she is getting dressed, this means 30 minutes.


3. “Where is our relationship going?”

What she means is that she would like for you to suggest the idea of the two of you to graduating to a more serious and exclusive relationship.


4. “Nothing.

This word ALWAYS means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with “Nothing” usually end with “Fine.”


5. “Go ahead.”

This is not permission–it’s a dare. Whatever it is, do it at your own risk!


6. “Loud sigh.”

This is a non-verbal statement that means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time arguing with you about nothing.


7. “That’s okay.”

This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. It means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.


8. “A guy was flirting with me.”

She wants you to know that other men are interested in her and that you should appreciate what you have.


9. “You know me so well.”

It means that she’s starting to feel the L-word, but she doesn’t want to be the first one to say it.


10. “Don’t Worry About It, I Got It.”

Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a she has asked you to do several times, but is now doing it herself since you’ve neglected it. This will later result in you asking “What’s wrong?”
