“What did I do now?”

Does this line look familiar? Of course, it is! If you’re a man, then most likely, you’ve said this line many times before.

Your friends called, and they asked you to have a good time with them, a boy’s night out, and you get excited that you immediately ask your wife or girlfriend about it.

She says, “go ahead” with a straight face.

You prepare, and just when you’re about to go out the door, your significant other lashes out on you.

Sounds familiar?

This is where everything gets a little bit complicated. Men, when they ask questions, they just want a straight answer. It’s either yes or no.

But women, they’re different. Women expect their men to read between the lines and feel the real answer behind what she’s saying.

Sure she said “go ahead,” but she doesn’t mean it like that!

Okay, so it is complicated. No wonder Steve Harvey’s audience laughed so hard when he featured deadly words used by women in his program.

We’re pretty sure women would relate to this, and as for the men, well, this will be your guide. So grab your pen and copy them.

The woman’s term:

Seriously?

What it really means:

When your girl says this word, she isn’t verifying your statement. She wants you to verify what you just said and she is giving you the chance to change it.

The woman’s term:

Go ahead.

What it really means:

Don’t be too excited when your wife tells you this term! Remember, this is not a “yes” or a ”permission” for you to go or do what you want to do.

It’s time to abort your mission because this isn’t what you think it is. It really means that she dares you to do it and if you do, you wouldn’t like what will happen next.

The woman’s term term:

Maybe

What it really means:

If your girl’s reaction is blank, or she’s not looking at you when she says “maybe” then it means “no!”

She wants you to read between the lines and just stop what you’re planning.

The woman’s term:

That’s okay.

What it really means:

She said that it’s okay. It’s too good to be true, right?

Well, maybe it is. So take a look at her expression and how she says it. There, you’ll know if it’s a genuine “yes” or the kind of yes that means you’ll regret your decision later.

The woman’s term:

Wow!

What it really means:

Her wow may be long or short but it all means one thing, she’s amazed at you but definitely NOT in a good way.

She’s amazed by how slow or dull you are.

The woman’s term (BONUS):

Nothing!

What it really means:

If you ask her if there’s something wrong and she says “nothing” then, most likely, there is something wrong.

It is complicated, right?

She simply wants you to notice it by yourself. Women don’t like telling it to you straight. They’d appreciate it if you would be able to know it by yourself.

If you still can’t figure out what she means, then expect to hear the “WOW” comment.
