Nine words women use

I don't know who wrote this but it gave me a good laugh. I can honestly say that "five minutes" is about 15 minutes for me and "nothing" means I'm really upset.

how about you?

9 words women use

Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Five Minutes: If she is dressed, this means a half an hour. 5 minutes is only 5 minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

Go ahead: This is a dare, not a permission. Don't do it!

Loud sigh: This is actually a word, but is a nonverbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add a clause here - this is true, unless she says "thanks a lot" -  that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'...That will be replied with a 'whatever').

Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying....Go to Hell....

Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to #3. 


  1. So true! haha I'm telling these to my husband, he needs to learn!

  2. Hahahahaha, that was great! "Whatever" means "go to hell". What a true statement! Well it's all true, but that one really made me chuckle!

  3. I'm kinda embarrassed to admit it but these are so true!

  4. THanks for your sweet comments on my blog. It's nice to have support of blog friends I've never met :) xoxo

  5. Hilarious! But oh so true. I need to find/write a male version for this.

  6. Ooh these are do fun..will need to do this soon on my blog.have a great weekend!

  7. LOL, oh my gosh, I am laughing so hard. Especially about the 5 minute thing.


  8. Haha this made me laugh! So TRUE! :D
    I am quilty of all these. specially "nothing" word comes out from my mouth when there is something wrong. Loud sigh is always a sign that something is wrong, and when I hear R doing it I immediately ask "what's wrong??" and he just looks me with weirdly and says "I'm just breathing..." Okay, so guys don't do the same haha.

  9. This list is so funny! I think pretty much all of these is true! haha


  10. this is awesome....thinking i need to pass it on to mark, hah!

  11. Hahah....this is so funny and I adore the whatever one:) Brilliant, sweetie. Happy Monday. xo

  12. Hi Reese!

    Audrey Hepburn looks adorable in the picture and the words made me laugh. Haha.

    Five minutes for me varies really. i can say five minutes at times and really finish in five times. There are times when I say five minutes but end up twenty minutes later because I thought I was moving fast. *blush* Haha.

  13. Wow! I've read these translations of women "code words"somewhere in internet,too! It is sooooo funny and embarrassingly true!!
    But men already get scared when they hear a "nothing"coming out as an answer from a woman's mouth...:)
    Kisses, honey bee!

  14. lol!! I love this!! Fine and Nothing are two words every woman uses often! I love the 5 minutes really means 15 but means 5 minutes when she gives you more time to watch the game! LOL! I hope you are having a great day! xoxo

  15. So Funny!

    And yes... So true ♥

  16. Many of these work well as a teacher too-as in "go ahead, i dare you to continue acting a fool in my class!"
    I saw one on someone's facebook wall the other day. It went something like this:
    "Nagging means she cares. Silence means she is plotting your death."

  17. Just stopping by again to say hello! Thank you for the email! I will write back as soon as I can! Tomorrow I am going on an annual family vacation. Pretty amazing everyone can get time off at the same time to go!

    I hope you are enjoying your weekend! Did you ever go to the palace in Caserta? I bet it's beautiful!!


  18. oh this is so funny- i love the "5 minutes" true! :)
