What Women Really Mean When They Say….
You probably know that women aren’t 100% truthful 100% of the time.
Okay, but do you know how to tell when your girlfriend or spouse is telling the truth and when she’s fibbing?
Sometimes it can be hard to tell, usually because your girl is probably lying in order to be nice to you. It’s not like she’s telling you a falsehood in order to put one over on you or to trick you; most of the time, women tell little white lies that are meant to make you feel better or to prevent a big argument.
That said, don’t you want to know the truth? After all, one of the easiest and quickest ways to show your girl that you really care is to demonstrate that you understand her needs, even when she’s not telling you directly what they are.
In this section we’ll go over some common lies that women tell men, and what they really mean. Once you understand the real meaning, you can prove to your girl that you know what she really needs and wants, even if she doesn’t say it—or even if she says the exact opposite! And that, my friends, is going to really win her over!
100) Okay, I’m wrong, you’re right.
A lot of times women will just get exhausted by their boyfriend or husband’s stubbornness, and they’ll just say this to avoid further confrontation. She probably still thinks that she’s right and you’re the one who’s wrong—and maybe she has a point. Would it kill you to listen to her? Probably not. Remember, a happy relationship is all about compromise. Both of you can’t win all the time, but you should always make an effort to at least listen to the other’s point of view.
101) I’m a sports nut.
Okay, some women do love sports, but they are few and far between. If your woman says this to you, she’s probably being nice so you’ll bring her along for guys’ night at the local sports bar or so she can spend more time with you on the couch watching the baseball game. Realize that she’s probably exaggerating in order to keep you interested in her, and don’t push her to spend all your free time doing sports-related activities.
102) Don’t worry, I don’t mind cleaning the house.
One of the oldest female stereotypes is that women are supposed to do the housework. Wrong! Women don’t like cleaning up after you, and your girlfriend or wife isn’t your mother. She may be telling you she doesn’t mind in order to avoid a fight or because she’s just super nice, but I can promise you she also wouldn’t mind if it you pitched in and helped her out!
103) Oh yeah, I really enjoy spending time with your friends.
Whether or not she likes your friends, she probably doesn’t want to spend a ton of time with them. Let’s face it, she’d rather have you all to herself, and if you’re like most guys, you probably act differently when you’re with the guys than you act when you’re with her. Don’t force her to hang out with your friends all the time, and respect that she’s not “one of the guys.” So respect her feelings and don’t bring the guys over to your place all the time.
104) Do you think that girl over there is pretty? If you say yes, I won’t get angry.
Don’t fall for it! This is a line girls use to try and get you to tell them how pretty they are. So the only acceptable answer to this is: “No one is as beautiful to me as you.”
105) Your family is great! Sure, we can go to their house again next weekend.
Maybe your girlfriend really does like your family, but that doesn’t mean she wants to spend all her time with them. Learn to separate your relationship from your family life. Compromise so that you spend some family holidays with her family, and some with yours.
106) I love you just the way you are and wouldn’t change you a bit!
Let’s face it: most women are nurturers, and they like giving you advice and helping you change in a positive direction. They enjoy helping you shop for new clothes and might even get offended if you do something drastic, like shave your head, without talking to them about it first.
107) I want your honest opinion: do I look bad in this outfit?
Again, it’s a trap! She’s just asking for your reassurance, so give it to her. If, however, you REALLY think a particular outfit is unflattering, tell her she looks great, but you think she would look even better in something else and then ask her to wear that little black dress of hers that drives you wild.
108) Let’s be friends first.
If a woman tells you this, she doesn’t feel attracted to you in a sexual way, but she probably really likes you and thinks you’re a good person. It can’t hurt to be her friend, as many great relationships grow out of friendships. Sexual attraction IS something that can develop over time.
109) I want us to stay friends.
If you’re breaking up and she tells you she wants to stay friends, it’s probably her way of easing the blow and letting you know that, although things didn’t work out, she thinks you’re a great guy.
