What Men Really Mean

     This week I thought it would be fun to talk about what men really mean when they tell us things. I found some really funny thoughts on this subject online and thought I would share them. They aren’t intended to be derogatory. They are just funny. But I have to say some of them are so true. Hope you enjoy them and laugh.

1.“I’m going fishing.”

Really means…

“I’m going to drink myself dangerously stupid and stand by a stream with a stick in my hand, while the fish swim by in complete safety.”

2.”It’s a guy thing.”

Really means….

“There is no rational thought pattern connected with it, and you have no chance at all of making it logical.”

3.”Can I help with dinner?”

Really means….

“Why isn’t it already on the table?”

4.”Uh huh,” “Sure, honey,” or “Yes, dear.”

Really means….

Absolutely nothing. It’s a conditioned response.

5.”It would take too long to explain.”

Really means…

“I have no idea how it works.”

6.”I’m getting more exercise lately.”

Really means….

“The batteries in the remote are dead.”

7.”We’re going to be late.”

Really means….

“Now I have a legitimate excuse to drive like a maniac.”

8.”I was listening to you. It’s just that I have things on my mind.”

Really means….

“I was wondering if that red-head over there is wearing a bra.”

9.”Take a break, honey, you’re working too hard.”

Really means….

“I can’t hear the game over the vacuum cleaner.”

10.”That’s interesting, dear.”

Really means….

“Are you still talking?”

11.”Honey, we don’t need material things to prove our love.”

Really means….

“I forgot our anniversary again.”

12.”You expect too much of me.”

Really means….

“You want me to stay awake.”

13.”It’s a really good movie.”

Really means….

“It’s got guns, knives, fast cars, and Heather Locklear.”

14.”That’s women’s work.”

Really means….

“It’s difficult, dirty, and thankless.”

15.”Will you marry me?”

Really means….

“Both my roommates have moved out, I can’t find the washer, and there is no more peanut butter.”

16.”You know how bad my memory is.”

Really means….

“I remember the theme song to ‘F Troop’, the address of the first girl I ever kissed and the Vehicle Identification Numbers of every car I’ve ever owned, but I forgot your birthday.”

17.”I was just thinking about you, and got you these roses.”

Really means….

“The girl selling them on the corner was a real babe.”

18.”Oh, don’t fuss. I just cut myself, it’s no big deal.”

Really means….

“I have severed a limb, but will bleed to death before I admit I’m hurt.”

19.”I do help around the house.”

Really means….

“I once put a dirty towel in the laundry basket.”

20.”Hey, I’ve got my reasons for what I’m doing.”

Really means….

“I sure hope I think of some reasons pretty soon.”

21.”I can’t find it.”

Really means….

“It didn’t fall into my outstretched hands, so I’m completely clueless.”

22.”What did I do this time?”

Really means….

“What did you catch me doing?”

23.”She’s one of those rabid feminists.”

Really means….

“She refused to make my coffee.”

24.”I heard you.”

Really means….

“I haven’t the foggiest clue what you just said, and am hoping desperately that I can fake it well enough so that you don’t spend the next 3 days yelling at me.”

25.”You know I could never love anyone else.”

Really means….

“I am used to the way you yell at me, and realize it could be worse.”

26.”You look terrific.”

Really means….

“Oh, God, please don’t try on one more outfit. I’m starving.”

27.”I brought you a present.”

Really means….

“It was free ice scraper night at the ball game.”

28.”I missed you.”

Really means….

“I can’t find my sock drawer, the kids are hungry and we are out of toilet paper.”

29.”I’m not lost. I know exactly where we are.”

Really means….

“I’m lost. I have no idea where we are, and no one will ever see us alive again.”

30.”We share the housework.”

Really means….

“I make the messes, you clean them up.”

31.”This relationship is getting too serious.”

Really means….

“You’re cutting into the time I spend with my truck.”

32.”I don’t need to read the instructions.”

Really means….

“I am perfectly capable of screwing it up without printed help.”

33.”I’ll fix the garbage disposal later.”

Really means….

“If I wait long enough you’ll get frustrated and buy a new one.”

34.”I broke up with her.”

Really means….

“She dumped me.”

     I think communication is key in a relationship. Do I think any of these will help you? No not really but sometimes it’s just fun to laugh.  Laughter is the best medicine. Ok next week it is our turn ladies. What we really mean when we talk to our men. Hope to see you next week for another big laugh.

Happy Reading and Writing

  1. ROFLMAO! Some of these were just too funny. Great posting!

    • Glad you got a good laugh. I thought they were too funny. Just wanted to do something a little light hearted. Sometimes it’s just nice to have some fun.

  2. Michael Bingamon

    Very well done. As a man I can tell you that four on the list are wrong.

    3-.”Can I help with dinner?”
    Really means…
    ‘I want in your pants.’

    14- .”That’s women’s work.”
    Really means…
    ‘I have better things to do.’

    15- “Will you marry me?”
    Really means….
    ‘You’re doing it right!’


    22- .”What did I do this time?”
    Really means…
    ‘What new rule did I break?’

    • Mike Love It! You are so right. Most men are always thinking about sex. We always keep you guessing. Sometimes too much. Glad you enjoyed it. Next week it’s the ladies turn. Let me tell you it is going to be hilarious. It’s funny because they are right on point. We are really hard to understand but with time most me figure our their women. At least they get an idea of when we are up set or not. We come back next week to laugh at the ladies. I figured if I was going to dish it I better be ready to take it too.

  3. I was nodding my head and chuckling after each of the men’s quotations and thoughts, Good intuitive and perceptive thoughts Thabitha.. But allow to change number “We share the housework” what he really means to me is “All house chores are your job, and I am the breadwinner, isn’t that enough”

But allow me to change number 30: “We share the housework” what he really means to me is “All house chores are your job, and I am the breadwinner, isn’t that enough?” Can’t wait for what the ladies thoughts are!
