Decode 8 Common Phrases Women Say



Women choose their words wisely, as they spend more time thinking, over-thinking and planning than their male counterparts.  Although women can express themselves eloquently, sometimes they give short (and sassy) responses. Decode your girlfriend’s common phrases to easily come up with the right word or action to keep you both happy.

“Fine.” Women use “fine” to end an argument when they have already decided they are right.  That one word means “shut up” as this conversation is over.

“I’m fine.”  Translation: “I am anything but fine.”  She may be upset, annoyed, anxious or hurt. Calmly ask what she needs of you rather than asking her what’s wrong.

“Five minutes."  If she is getting dressed, this could mean a half an hour. Five minutes is only accurately five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping her with chores or shopping.

"Are you wearing that?" If she is questioning your choice of outfit, she is really saying "Oh no, you are not wearing that." Let her pick out something more appropriate for where you are going, whether it is a date or interview. Yes, you're allowed to make your own decisions, but she wants to make sure you look right for the occasion.

“Nothing.”  This actually means something, so be alert and on your toes.

“Go Ahead.” This is a dare, not permission. She is testing if you will really do something she most likely disapproves of.

“Whatever.” You’ve pissed her off. She almost doesn’t care about what you decide to do. Almost.

“Don't worry about it, I got it.” If this is something she has told her guy to do several times, but is now doing it herself, he should worry. Make it up to her by doing something else she’d like after she asks the first time around or surprise her by doing a task she hates doing herself.
