Nine Responses Women Use…

I have no idea where this came from but I found this in my Explorer inbox.  Cracked me up and just in case you haven’t seen it~ take a look!

(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 ” fine.”

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

(5) Loud Sigh: 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 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. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’.. That will bring on a “whatever”).

(8) Whatever : Is a woman’s way of saying…Go to Hell…

(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.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it’s true!! And to understand men, check out The Man Rules

    Hi Linda,

    Those words are so true. Not because it sounds like, doesn’t really mean it also means like.

  3. Jean @ Used Tires Says:

    Hehe, I quite enjoyed reading through those and can relate to them quite well. The relation between #9 and #3 in particular made me laugh! Personally, I am really scared of the ‘nothing’ after I ask what’s wrong because then I have to be very careful of what I say from that point because on one hand, I truly want to find out what is bothering her but on the other hand, I don’t want to make the situation even worse!

  5. Andrew Says:

    That’s okay actually means Not Okay when translated into the language of women… my wife says that all the time and then she becomes upset afterwards

  6. Katie Miller Says:

    I can relate much on this, woman has a lot of statements, words, and language that’s needs you to go beyond on it in order to understand her further.

  7. Promotional Products Says:

    Hey Linda, this post left me nothing to say but YES, ultimately true! This sure makes me laugh indeed too, I can exactly see my self saying these responses with exact definitions held. Funny but soo true.


  8. Value Promotions Says:

    Lol! This is indeed so true. There are certain words that women use but only us knows what it really means. It’s up for the guys to decipher it.


  9. Becca Says:

    So true! I will share this to my friends.

  10. Elena Anne Says:

    Very funny and true post. I think ‘nothing’ is one of the most dangerous ones! It’s never nothing!

  11. Ronaldo Says:

    Lol at “Five minutes”. That’s very true when my wife says that phrase. Thank you for sharing these womanly words.


  12. Mae Says:

    Haha! I totally agree with you. Honestly, I actually use those lines every time I get annoyed. I wonder how many girls are using the phrases as well. :)

  13. Sandip @ Funding Platform Says:

    Lol this is great and pretty often spot on. Here’s another funny one:

    – 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”


  14. Kathy@Del Rey Bankruptcy Attorney Says:

    Linda, thanks for posting the nine responses! These are so true and so funny. My husband was cracking up when I was reading them to him and agreed with all of it! lol!:)


  15. ellaine Says:

    That’s so funny. Actually it’s so hard to deal with women; very complicated. To make the relationship healthy its very good to be honest enough and always talk to your partner. Tolerance and patience is very important.

  16. reese Says:

    I had to laugh too. I would have loved to think that I am not like this at all but I am. In fact, my hubby and I just had a misunderstanding awhile ago (but totally okay now) and I had made a good use of a phrase or two that’s on here.

  19. Jeremy@Wedding Planner Calgary Says:

    Linda, couldn’t stop laughing, reading the above. I think its pretty much what is my experience with women around me.


  20. Radu Says:

    Sadly but true. This is another reason of why men can’t understand women at 100%.


  21. Jeremy Says:

    I’m no expert at ladies’ expressions but I definitely learned all of those things above. Thank you for sharing them.


  22. Martin Cooney @ Marriage Advice Says:

    I always have a giggle every time I read these, Linda :)
    Though it is interesting to think that it’s a little dishonest to say something to anyone when it’s untrue – no wonder the majority of guys get all twisted up when it comes to female communication.

  24. Cristian Balau Says:

    Pretty much true. From my point of view, all you need to know is the following:
    No means maybe
    Maybe means yes
    Yes means…well, she’s not really a women.

    Women are made from sugar, spice and everything nice. That is the reason why they simply utter “WHATEVER!” when they actually mean “Go to hell and burn yourself” >:) haha

    “Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!” haha I as a man have heard this before and I wasn’t always wise enough to listen to the warning. Most recent example: “You want to drink with your friends and not clean out the garage like I asked? Go ahead.
