In A Word

Recommended Posts

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 a 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



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


5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is 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 F@!KYOU!


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.

8) OK, ...here is the flip side.


Why is when men do something they KNOW is "not quite right" they give you this flat look and say, "Whaaat?"


Here is a perfect example of what I mean. This from an Australian Beer commercial for Haan Beer, called "How men ruin romance." I think this is a re-post (sorry):

What men want women to know.....


Enough with the hints. Hints don't work with us. Just tell us what you want. Use brief, direct statements.


If you use the "nagging" tone of voice, we're just going to tune you out. We've been hearing that voice our entire lives from our mothers, sisters, and girlfriends, and we've been conditioned to not listen to it.


Quit asking us questions that we can't answer without getting into trouble. Example: "Do you think that woman is attractive?", "Do these jeans make me look fat?", etc.


Don't ask us which outfit we like better. They're all perfectly fine. We really don't have any preference or opinion about it.


The worst time to try to discuss a problem with us is right when we get home from work. You'll get much better results if you leave us alone for twenty minutes, and then approach us afterward.


If you ask us "What are you thinking about?" and we say "Nothing," we're not avoiding the question. We're really not thinking about anything in particular at that moment. Or possibly we're thinking about another woman. Either way, just leave us alone.


If you tell us about a problem, we're going to propose a solution. Don't expect us to always agree with you or automatically give you sympathy.


Just because we don't feel like talking at the moment, doesn't mean we're angry or hurt or anything like that. We just don't feel like talking right now, that's all. We're very literal a lot of the time, and there's no need to read into things.


Don't expect us to behave the way we did on our first date, after we've known you for years.


Our balls itch sometimes! It's a guy thing, you'll never understand!

Okay...but I will. Men and women are different and that is a good thing. These differences are reinforced by socialisation, but are part of our natural biochemistry, contrary to the equality throries of the sixties and seventies. And the grass is not greener on the other side of the fence, there are just different weeds.

I agree lynxette


Men and women are different, its just that women are more different than men.


I'm lighting the blue touch paper now - now I'm running

How about this?


Woman: "You never take me to the movies"


Man: "Do you want to go to the movies?"


W: "Not today."


M: "Okay. When?"


W: "I don't konw. Maybe tomorrow."


M: "All right! Tomorrow! "



M: "Do you want to go to the movies tonight?"


W: "No. The house is dirty."


M: "Well, when?"


W: "I have to clean the house first."


M: "Okay. You tell me when you want to go and I'll take you to the movies."



Woman: "You never take me to the movies!"

Tell me what part of "Ask me and I'll take you to the movies." is unclear.


Remember! I asked her TWO times if she wanted to go to the movies but she said, "No." In the third case I said, "Tell me when."


I don't know any way to make it more clear than that.

She'd say


" I CANT! I haven't got a THING to wear"


Which I THINK translates us.


" You fool, I'd rather have the money to buy a pair of shoes, like NOW"

For the ladies.


Dear Tech Support,

Mary: My last boyfriend said he fantasized about having two girls at once.

Jill: Yeah, most men do. What did you tell him?

Mary: I said, "If you can't satisfy one woman, why would you want to piss off another one?"

Yes - ! I finally found it!!


Here is the guys' side of the story. We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.


These are our rules! Please note.. these are all numbered "1" - on purpose!



1. Men are not mind readers.


1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.


1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.


1. Shopping is not a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.


1. Crying is blackmail.


1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!


1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.


1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.


1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.


1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.


1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.


1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.


1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.


1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both! If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.


1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.


1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions - and neither do we.


1. All men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.


1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.


1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.


1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.


1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really - !


1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or golf.


1. You have enough clothes.


1. You have too many shoes.


1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!


1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight. But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping . . .
