View Full Version : The Meaning of Some Words That Women Use

06-08-2004, 12:59 PM
For those men out there who don't yet understand their wives and/or girlfriends well enough...

- This is the word women use to end an argumnet 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.

- This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last, so it's an even trade.

- 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".

"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.

- 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".

- 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.

- This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with "A Raised Eyebrow".

- At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.

- This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman 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".

- A woman is thanking you. Do not faint! Just say, "You're welcome".

- 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".

HAHAHAHA Good post Barbara,

I have some myself,

MAYBE: means no.

WILL SEE: means maybe but usually means no.

I DON'T CARE: means if you pick wrong? Your not going to like it.

I also know when you hear the phrase: We have two days left.

Forget the first day, and if anyone pi$$es her off on the second? Revert to MAYBE.


C.C.~~catching on /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Thanks for the refresher course, Barbarella.

Here's a few for women trying to figger out their guys:

"Fine" - means o.k. or no problem (no need to look any deeper)

"Nothing" - means just that (no need to look any deeper). See also; Nada

"Loud sigh" - normal noise made on occasion (no need to look any deeper)

"Soft sigh" - see above. Not to be mistaken with a Fart.

Hope this helps /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Eric &gt;(no need to look any deeper)

C.C. - K-mom and my wife must have gone to school together, as these mean the same at my house. Only I haven't learned when to keep quiet.

DG - still learning /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Thanks for the "Men's Dictionary"!!

Not so many words, hmmmmm...


06-09-2004, 08:29 PM
Oh, I know the words.

~~rod doesn't need a womans dictionary, I think

My Mom and Dad are still married because my Pop's vocabulary has been reduced to 2 words. Yes &amp; Dear.

Kato~~~has a larger vocabulary and loves to argue. Might have something to do with my singular status /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Barbara, you say nothing about the "silent treatment". I guess that's the worst statement a women can make.

Harold ~ been there a lot, specially when I need to go out to Pool rooms or Billiard Tournaments where I cannot take her with me....
