What She Really Means When She Says ...

Women have a lot to say, but are often not as clear or blunt as men would like them to be. Attempting to decode the actual intentions behind their confusing statements can leave many men lost, frustrated, and in trouble. The reason why women are not always as direct in conversation as men is because they often do not want to come across as being too assertive or rude. Conveying their thoughts in a subtle and roundabout manner is safer and less confrontational. Here are some common things women say and what they really mean.
"Do Your Parents Even Like Me At All?"
"It's Fine. Go Ahead."
Although you may hurt or anger her, she does not want to be controlling or nagging by telling you what to do. She wants to be the "cool girlfriend" who lets her man just be a man when he wants to be, even if that means surrendering her own feelings. Your girlfriend may also be trying to convince herself that it is not a big deal by telling you that everything is fine and that she is okay with your decision.
"Your Ex-Girlfriend Sounds Like A Nice Person. Why Did You Break Up Again?"
"I've Just Got Too Much Going On In My Life Right Now To Get Into A Relationship."
Another possibility is that she may not be admitting that there is someone else in the picture. This type of situation is becoming more and more popular with women as they "sort-of" have something going on with a few guys at the same time. In this case, she will want to take her time seeing what will work out and whom she could see herself getting into a relationship with. Just be aware that you may be up against some competition that she's probably not going to let on about.
Another meaning to this phrase is that she just simply does not see herself in a serious relationship with you. She will blame it on her busy life just to spare your feelings. This doesn't necessarily mean that you should give up on her just yet. Take it slow and don't push a relationship. Chances are, in time, she may change her mind if she's really into you.
It is always important to remember that by nature, men and women have very different ways of communicating their thoughts and feelings. Being aware of these differences can help you better understand that women might say or ask things that have deeper meanings and consequences. The best way to determine a woman's true intentions is to consider the context of the situation and to ask yourself, "Does she really want to know about that, or is there something else going on here?" It also would be a good idea to outright ask her what she's getting at. You could save yourself from getting trapped or making a fool of yourself.Learn More About Relationships »
