It’s not a secret that men and women communicate differently, and one doesn’t necessarily communicate better than the other. Overtime we learn how to adjust to these differences, but there are still some things that we haven’t quite figured out about each other. Here’s a guide for the guys reading this on some things us gals say and what it really means:
“I’ll be ready in five minutes.” This one is so stereotypical, but when you hear those words, you might as well sit down and wait patiently because it’s not going to be five minutes.
“It’s fine.” If used in argument or with a big sigh at the end, it’s probably not fine. You do have to be careful how you respond to this, though, because a lot of times in these settings, fine is used to prevent further talk on the matter at hand, but we also don’t want you to sit there and do nothing about it.
“No, you can go/go without me.” If it’s between you going somewhere and the two of you doing something together, especially if she was really excited about the plans, 99% of the time, she doesn’t actually want you to go.
“How do you two know each other?” Women want to know everything and anything, so when this question is asked, it usually means the guy has started texting or mentioning a new girl and the woman you are with is trying to figure out if she is a threat.
“What did you do last night?” If asked this causally at the dinner table, then you’re safe, but if a some-what long “sooo” comes before it or there is a certain tone when asked, then your woman knows what you were doing last night and is wanting a good explanation for what happened, and trust me, she knows because women know everything.
A lot of times, women want the man to be able to use his “superpowers” to automatically know what is really going on and what she wants. Some of these questions or statements stem from insecurity and she just wants some assurance and validation in the relationship.
