What He Really Meant to Say!

What he really said ...

Men and women speak different languages! Yes, they do, and we know this. But, we have no warning about the language barrier; that is until we run head on into it like a speeding bullet! Learning the language of men can eliminate a woman's frustrations and expectations.

A certain someone explained about the language of women, recently. But, they left out the language of men! Here's a few tips to know what he really means:

It's a guy thing”: Actually, there's no rational pattern connected with this saying, and women have no chance of making sense of it.

Uh-huh,” “Sure Honey,” or “Yes Dear”: This is a conditional response and virtually means nothing. They're probably tuning out everything you say, especially when watching sports or when you drag their butts to the mall.

It's Hard to Explain” or “You Wouldn't Understand”: This means they have absolutely no idea about how it works or how to fix it.

You know My Memory is Bad”: What he's actually saying, is that he remembers everything that interests him, but he forgot your birthday or anniversary.

It's Just a Scratch” or “It's No Big Deal”: He probably severed a limb, but insists he isn't hurt; needs stitches but he's a man!

When he asks, “What Did I Do This Time?” he's really asking, “What did you catch me doing?”

Hey, I Got My Reasons”: Really means, When I think of a reason, I'll let you know.

You're Right, I'm Wrong”: Means he knows you're angry, he's hungry and knows women don't cook when they're angry. Soooooooo ...”

Sure, we can talk”: Translates to, “I'll listen but can't promise to pay attention. You have three minutes before the game comes back on ... GO!”

I Am Not Lost!”: Means, we'll never be seen again, and I will NOT ask for directions!

It was right here, where'd you put it?” Actually, this means he has no idea where he left it, so blame someone else and skip taking responsibility.

Loud Sigh: Men do this when they run out of beer, and hope women will take pity on them and jump up and get them another one.

That's Okay: This is a con-job and a way to gain 'brownie points.'

Take a break, honey, you work too hard”: Meaning, whatever she is doing (like vacuuming) he can't hear the game on TV.

I heard you”: He has no idea or cares what you're talking about, or just said, and he's having problems faking it.

Nothing”: It's off limits, and any man-savvy woman should realize that whatever it is, it's not up for discussion. Full stop! Stay away!

Fine”: Depends on the context, like a 'fine' to the question, “How was work” means it was f***ing nuts. If “fine” comes at the end of an argument, it's basically the same as when a woman says it, but is usually SHOUTED LIKE THIS, because guys have trouble toning down anger.

Go ahead”: “Do whatever the hell you want!” Often accompanied with a “Fine!”

I'm Sorry”: Means, he doesn't know why or what he's apologizing for, but seems to be the only thing to do so he can watch the rest of the game.

You Look Hot,” “You're Beautiful,” or “Hey, Baby”: Equals to, “Wanna have sex?”

Can I Help With Dinner?” Usually, this means “What's taking you so long to get me something to eat?”

Can We Talk Later?”: Pretty much, men are unable to think and watch TV at the same time. Grunts, obscenities and belching is protocol when they're minds are engaged in 'guy things;' don't expect much more.

Honey, you're right,” “I'm wrong,” “Please forgive me”: In other words, “I want to live!”
