Words Women Use
[Return to Topics]

This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right
and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks -
this will cause you to have one of those arguments.

This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your
football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an
even trade.

This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is
usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you
inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an
argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine"

GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows! )
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over
"Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"

GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will
get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by
"Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when
she cools off.

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 at
that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and
arguing with you over "Nothing"

Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she
is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay

This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a
man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before
paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is
often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow."

At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big

This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance
to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is
that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful
and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay"

A woman is thanking you. Do not faint! Just say you're welcome.

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

Send this to the men you know to warn them about future arguments they can
avoid if they remember the terminology!

And send it to your women friends to give them a good laugh!

And the one they forgot:

WHATEVER!!!!: Means I'm not even going to waste the time it would take to
respond as you're too stupid to understand it anyway

I looooove that movie. One of the few love stories that
will make me sigh. Okay the sound track is strangely
unsuited, and mathew broderick couldn't act his way
out of a wet paper bag in a rainstorm, but other than

I hate the "we need to talk" This means she starts in and I just listen and sometimes nod in agreement.

You forgot, Go ahead, I don't mind! It means proceed at your own risk, I'll remind you of it forever, It is usually brought on by any of the above words and ends with "THE LOOK". Most married men know all about "THE LOOK". It is taught in secret mother/daughter meetings with instructions passed down from the time of Eve. No man has ever heard these instructions and lived. No married man has ever seen "THE LOOK" till after the wedding/honeymoon. If you get "THE LOOK" after the wedding and before the honeymoon, you are in deep stuff.

Had I known that It may have made the last thirty-five years easier. But it is never too late to learn, thanks for the tip.

If I learned anything in the last 28 years, it's that these words are only good for 2 weeks at the most, then they change!!!
Don't try to keep up, just go with the flow like you've been doing and keep your head low. Watch out for incoming skillets!
