What She Means – Gender Differences

differences gender - communication

Have you ever wondered what does she mean? Women in general will express their emotions, wants and desires using a normal straight to the point communication style. Unfortunately, some women will say something but mean something else.

I always wondered; why do they do this? I researched and read a few articles about how to recognize this female communication. In one of this articles they even explain what the man should do when she asks him certain questions. For example; Do I look Fat? or If We were not together which of my friends would you go for? I read the whole article to be prepared for the next time these questions come across. Then, I realized;

– Wait a minute! I don’t have to put up with this passive-aggressive behavior. It is not my problem she doesn’t know how to communicate –

I you still want to know what she means read ahead and find out yet more gender differences; What She Says vs What She Means.

1. FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right, and you need to shut up.

2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means 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.

3. 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 (see #1).

4. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

5. Loud Sigh: This is not actually a word but 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.)

6. That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. “That’s okay” means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7. Thanks: A woman is thanking you – do not question or faint. Just say you’re welcome.

8. Whatever: Is a women’s way of saying “%@&* YOU!”

9. 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.
