What Women Say And What They Really Mean
The infamous quote “Women are from Venus and men are from Mars” has gained a lot of popularity over the years. The fact is that men think women are cryptic in the things they say, and to some extent ladies, we have to admit that we aren't the most straightforward people when it comes to a lot of things. So this article is for the men out there. It's a little cheat sheet that might help you decide what your wife or girlfriend actually mean when they say something. But it's also for the women, if you want to decode “what she meant when she said that.”
1. “I'll take care of it later”
If your wife says this in the context of chores that are left to be done, she probably means she hopes you’ll do it because she's caught up with some work or she's tired. And you can very well expect her to be upset or angry if you don't do said chore.
2. “I'm almost ready”
You're going to be at least half an hour late to wherever it is you're going. Every woman can pick out something wrong with their hairstyle, outfit, or makeup, so don't be fooled when she says she's almost done. Everything needs to be perfect when you're going to a party or any kind of social gathering. This is especially so after you have a child because it becomes about proving that she can get back to looking hot and beautiful even after pushing a baby out of her.
3. Opinion on how she looks
When she asks you how she looks, what she's really doing is telling you to compliment her. She probably doesn't really care about what you think of her outfit, she just wants the sound of approval. And for the love of all that is good in this world, if she asks you if something makes her look fat, always, ALWAYS, say no. If you say yes, you can say goodbye to nice wifey and say hello to mean, fiesty wifey for the rest of the night.
4. “It's fine”
Boyyyyy you better figure out what you did wrong. Most of the time when a woman says something is fine, it's most definitely not fine, and she's probably going to bring it up very soon. Do not be fooled, it will come back to bite you in the ass. There's no point in being optimistic in this situation. If “it's fine” your best course of action would be to apologise profusely and try to undo whatever it was that solicited that response.
This could mean two things. The first is that she's upset about something (don't worry, it's not necessarily your doing) and that she just wants to avoid or ignore it for the time being. The second is that she is actually tired and there is no chance that you're going to get sex tonight, so don't even suggest it.
6. Opinion on how you look
If she ever says “You're wearing that?” she really means that she thinks it looks horrible and you should probably change into something else. You’re best option is to ask her to pick something out for you or get her advice on what you choose to wear.
These are only a few cheat codes to understanding a woman that we have shared with you. There are a lot more but it's quite subject to individual difference, so you’ll need to figure them out on your own. You need to be able to tell when the response is genuine and when it's hiding a deeper meaning. It's all about how well you understand your wife and how well you can decipher her words. The key to a happy life is a happy wife.
