The guys guide to female communication: what she says vs. what she means
In today’s age of gadget driven communication, it’s more important than ever to pay attention to social and physical cues to decipher the message. There are countless books out there which tackle this message, but sometimes its so blatantly obvious that one must chuckle at the inability to take a hint. *Guys, ladies hint… A LOT!
As my significant other has sucked me into the world of youtube, I have witnessed some absolutely cringe-worthy tutorials on what women want. (Usually by young men who have not had the life experience required to even take a guess)
So, I figured we’d have some fun and I would write my own little list of what she says (does) vs. what she means. I hope you either have a good giggle, or maybe get that codex in your head once and for all 😉
*When you ask what she wants for dinner, what she says: I don’t know, what do you want? What she means: I really don’t know, what do you want?! Maybe you’ll amaze me with something that will make me super happy 🙂
*What she says: I’m not a feminist
What she means: Todays feminists are so overboard. Ask me in the 1950’s and my answer would be yes, when it was about the ability to work for fair pay – not as a teacher or secretary without being demonized. But as of this maniacal raving about everything male? Nope, not a feminist, I love a manly man.
*What she says: I’m craving candy
What she means: I’m craving candy, will you please be awesome enough to buy me some?
*What she does: Have the house clean & greets you at the door with a kiss and a smile
What she means: I missed you, you’re appreciated, and..oh yeah…You are so getting lucky tonight!
*What she says: I like those shoes
What she means: Would you like to see me in those shoes?!
*When you ask her how she’s doing, what she says: I’m fine. What she means: I’m anything but ok. Ask me what’s wrong. I dare you.
*What she says: Oh, she’s pretty
What she means: Please, say something about her that doesn’t make her perfect
*What she says: I talked to so-and-so today. (usually a boss or family member)
What she means: Break out the red wine, its going to be a loooonnnngggg night!
*What she does: Sits with her body angled towards you.
What she means: I’m interested! 🙂
*What she says: I’m going out with the girls
What she means: I’m going to grab a drink/do some shopping & listen to a shit ton of gossip, so you’d better be ready to listen to me bitch about my friends when I get back.
*What she says: I’m going shopping.
What she means: Tell me if there’s ONE thing you need & cross your fingers all the bills have been paid.
*What she says: I want to snuggle
What she means: Phones, iPads, PC’s and music be damned! I’m staying right here in this cozy spot for the day! Hope he orders in pizza.
*What she says: Can we leave the phones (somewhere) for dinner?
What she means: If I see you on that phone while we’re supposed to be having a romantic meal together, that thing is going to fly out the window. No shit.
*What she says: I’m hungry.
What she means: I was hungry 2 hours ago, I’m now so ravenous I’m ready to eat the couch! Food! Stat! Before I turn into a monster :/
*What she does: Order a small salad as her meal
What she means: I really care what you think about me. Don’t worry, I’ll be eating an entire ham at around midnight tonight.
*What she says: Where do you see this going?
What she means: Seriously?! Whhhhyyyyy are you soooo slow?! You’ve had ample time to fall in love with me, now tell me what I want to hear and lets get moving!
There are so many more of these that I just couldn’t stop myself, but I didn’t want you scrolling, scrolling, scrolling along.
What do you think? Ladies, am I wrong? Guys, have any funny remedies to these?
Thanks for joining in the fun!
