What She Really Meant Is…


Guys have you ever been in a situation with a woman where you said to yourself, “what in the world is she talking about?”, or “I wish I knew what she was thinking?” Of course you have… Every guy does because it takes years of experience and tons of studying to learn “woman speak”. Woman speak is a cryptic language that is mostly made up of innuendo, hints, suppressed feelings and it is generally emotionally charged. All of those communicating nuisances can be a disaster for men who are usually best at seeing things black or white with not much room for guess work. Men are rarely equipped with the ability to translate the true meaning of what a woman is trying to communicate to him and as a result both parties never get to the real meaning of what she wants to convey. These communication breakdowns that happen between men and women are not new, but if it isn’t addressed and acknowledge progress will never be made and men everywhere will continue to be baffled. That’s where I come in… This month’s article is a female to male translation guide for you guys to refer to when you find yourself struggling to understand what she is trying to say to you. Clip this article out of the paper and stick it in your wallet in case of emergency.


Good or bad, I have spent the lion’s share of my time around women. I was raised by my mother and my sister, most of my educators and supervisors have been women, I have dated more than my share of women and a lot of my friends are of the female persuasion. With that said I am confident that I am qualified to share with you the following “woman speak” translations, or what I like to call “what she really meant is…”


  1. “Do I look fat?” What she really meant is… Please pay me a compliment; I am looking for an ego boot. No she doesn’t want the truth.
  2. “Do what you like!” What she really meant is… There will be hell to pay if you do whatever it is you want to do.
  3. “Give me a second to get ready.” What she really meant is… It’s going to be a while.
  4. “I’m fine.” What she really meant is… I am far from fine, but since you’re not capable of reading my mind and there is no way I am going to tell you my true feelings we should just drop it.

  11. “Let’s start as friends” What she really meant is… I’ve had too many guys hit and run so if you want some of this you’re going to have to put the time in.
