Translating Woman's Speak

Mike's Common Sense

There have been many books written throughout the years about the differences between men and women. They all extol their reasons for the apparent differences between the sexes. Men are from this planet, while women come from another; women are emotional in nature, while men are rooted in the mental realm etc.

As a guy who has been studying the female of the species for over thirty years, I have found the major difference between the sexes. Women speak a different language than men. It sounds simple but that is the major difference between the sexes.

For the male readers out there who have not mastered “woman speak” I will list a number of woman speak phrases, and then translate them for you. It is my hope that I may be able to spare many of my fellow guys any more angst than they have already been through.


1) “I like love handles on a guy. It gives me something to hold on to.”

Translation: I would love you to have the abs, and butt of Brad Pitt, but I don’t want to hurt your feelings.


2) “You’re kind of cute”

Translation: I have my beer goggles on, I haven’t had a man in six months, it’s getting late, and I’m actually considering you.


3) “I have a headache”

Translation: It is always about YOU. Where were you last Friday when I was in the mood and you got too drunk to perform!


4) “Sorry I didn’t get you a birthday card, but I am not a card person”

Translation: I am not into giving cards, however you better remember to give me a card on every special holiday, event, and Valentines Day; or I will rag on you for two weeks after the missed event, and for two weeks prior to next year’s.


5) “Do I look fat in this?”

Translation: I want you to tell me how thin, and sexy I still am.


6) “She has fake boobs!”

Translation: Why are you looking at her?!


7) “I normally don’t do this”

Translation: You are going to get lucky tonight.


8) “If you touch that air conditioner, I will kill you!”

Translation: I am having a hot flash, and I will kill you if you try to turn down the air conditioner.


9) “I don’t feel like sex tonight”

Translation: I want you to take me to dinner, a movie, and out for a couple of drinks; maybe I’ll change my mind.


10) “I think I am a very level headed woman”

Translation: I am crazier than a shit house rat, and I make Amy Winehouse look like Mother Teresa.


11) “Tequila makes my clothes fall off”

Translation: If you want any action tonight, buy me a tequila!


12) “I don’t think you appreciate me”

Translation: Wine me, and dine me, you slug!



I am currently working on my Guy to Lady; and Lady to Guy dictionary. I know this will be a very valuable tool for both sexes.

Number 5 is one I can be "guilty" of on occasion. LOL! And anniversaries and birthdays are important to me, but I understand they are not so much to my s/o, however I take the initiative and we always have fun.

Hi G-Ma! Who said I had women figured out? At best I have learned some of their language.

Hi VioletSun! I am glad you do your best to co-habitate peacefully with your s/o. Men and women are different, but that's what makes it so fun, and interesting.
