Our Second Language...

I found this tucked away on my Facebook page last night, must have posted it about 2 or 3 years ago (...have I really had it for that long? sheesh). I figured there was place for it here. Enjoy.

9 Words Women Use (and what they really mean):

"Fine" - This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

"5 Minutes" - If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

"Nothing" - This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

"Go Ahead" - This is a dare, not permission. Whatever it is, Don't Do It.

"Loud Sigh" - This isn't actually a word, but rather a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

"That's OK" - This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants you to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

"Thanks" - A woman is thanking you, do not question or faint. Just say you're welcome.

"Whatever" - Is a woman's way of saying ***** YOU!

"Don't worry about it, I got it" - Another dangerous statement, meaning
this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking "What's wrong?" For the woman's response refer to #3.


  1. Good post and because I gave about zero knowledge as to the way womens brains work, I must agree. The stalker and I had agreed to spend Christmas together but she decided to try and exert her control in a very busy London shopping street - One thing women must learn is don't push it too far, she definitely did, I was in a relatively good mood when I met her - that didn't last long.
