Decoding female language can seem next to impossible. Here are 5 classic things that women say when they really mean something else:
“Fine”. It’s not fine. If you’ve ever been in an argument with your girlfriend and she says, “it’s fine”, this really means she is totally unimpressed. She thinks that you are so far off base that it’s not even worth explaining her side anymore, so she’s shutting down the conversation. She doesn’t really want to drop it, so take a minute and try to re-approach the conversation from another angle.
“Whatever”. This passive aggressive comment comes from when she feels like the conversation is not going the way that she wants and she doesn’t know how to steer it back. Saying “whatever” is her way of shutting it down and saying, “stop talking about it and leave me alone”. For now, anyway. She never fully wants to drop something until it’s resolved, so try again later.
