Words that Women Use

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

hi folks, my favourite saying that women use is "if you don't know why i am mad at you, then i am not going to tell you." this is normally said with her folding her arms and not looking at you when she says it. ho. ho.

SORRY: A word that is generally foreign to women, so if you hear it report this to as many people as possible. NB. Be wary of the word “Sorry” followed by the word BUT.

heres a few more: GO AHEAD. At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble. PLEASE DO This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay." THANKS A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome. THANKS A LOT This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing."

Men & women think and express themselves differently: their circuits are quite different and progressively hard-wired starting from about 7 weeks after conception. There are several good books on the subject, the best, I think, being "Brain Sex" (terrible title) by Jan Moir closely followed by "Why Don't You Say What You Mean" by Victoria Tannen. Then there's "Men are from Mars, Women from Venus" and a few others. Len

"It doesn't matter" = it does matter. "You're only saying that because ............" = I've decided what you mean, you had an ulterior motive (even though it bears no relation to what you were actually thinking).

"I'm not saying your wrong" but......... (I know I'm right) "I don't want to argue about it" (Woe betide you if you do!) "We are all entitled to our opinions" (end of arguement, no further comments allowed) "I can manage" (I know I can't but determined not to admit it) "Does this look ok?" (Don't you dare say my bum looks big) "I fancy an early night!" (I really fancy an early night, I have a great book I'm reading) "Of course I'm OK " (light the blue touch paper, and retire to a safe distance!) To name but a few! Lynda

Wendy, It would be easier to learn Japanese than Woman Talk! Got more double meanings than the english Language :-) Do you think they do evening classes? mind you it'd be a bloody long course. ;-)

Yes = No No = Yes Maybe = No I'm sorry = You'll be sorry We need = I want We need to talk = I need to complain Sure... go ahead = I don't want you to It's your decision = The correct decision should be obvious by now. Do what you want = You'll pay for this later I'm not upset = Of course I'm upset, you moron! You're... so manly = You need a shave and you sweat a lot You're certainly attentive tonight = Is sex all you ever think about? Be romantic, turn out the lights = I have flabby thighs This kitchen is so inconvenient = I want a new house I want new curtains = ... and carpeting, and furniture, and wallpaper Hang the picture there = NO, I mean hang it there! I heard a noise = I noticed you were almost asleep Do you love me? = I'm going to ask for something expensive How much do you love me? = I did something today you're really not going to like DARFC :-) Rick.

GO AHEAD ( With Raised Eyebrows! ) This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine" GO AHEAD ( Normal Eyebrows) This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off. LOUD SIGH This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing" SOFT SIGH Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content

FIVE MINUTES: This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that the film you are watching is going to last before you do the washing up, so its an even trade. NOTHING This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine"

FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
