Topic of the Week: Decoding Man Language – What a Man Says and What He Really Means.
Men speak from a physical standpoint and women speak from an emotional standpoint, therefore in many cases what a man says and what he really means gets lost in translation.
Studies show that men use language to establish difference, separateness and independence …which is exactly the opposite of women. Women talk to connect. This week I’m going to address what a man says and what he is really trying to tell you.
‘I’m not looking for a relationship right now’
Translation: I want to sleep with you, but I don’t want to wake up next to you in the morning. He just wants to hook up. He doesn’t want to go on dates or spend time getting to know you, he simply wants sex.
When a man refers to a previous sexual relationship and says ‘It didn’t mean anything’
Translation: It didn’t mean anything emotionally. It simply means it was just sex, nothing more. Men are not emotional, they are physical. Just because a man has sex with a woman doesn’t mean he necessarily connected with her on an emotional level.
‘I need some space … I think we need to take a break’
Translation: When a man says this, it means one of two things. It means that you’re too clingy or it means that he has someone else and needs time to figure out who he really wants to be with. There’s no real ‘break’ in a relationship. Either you’re committed or you’re not (when you’re dating).
‘I’m working on me right now’
Translation: When a man says this, it is just a nice way of breaking up with someone. It’s nicer than saying, “I’m no longer interested in you” or “I don’t want to be with you anymore.”
‘I want to take it slow’
Translation: When a man says this it usually means that he has prior damage. He either had a really bad break up or is still trying to get over his ex. It may also mean that he has commitment issues, he likes you but doesn’t want to make any kind of commitment because he is afraid of being hurt.
That’s it for this week. Remember ladies, send your questions to AskTrigg@gmail.com!
