What Do We Really Mean?

Sometimes when women and men say things, it’s the underneath message that is really the intent.  Bill and Pam Farrel give these examples:

Women:
If she says: “We need”, she means, “I want”.
If she says: “You’re so manly”, she means “You need a shave and you sweat a lot”.
If she says: “How much do you love me?”, she means “I did something today you’re really not going to like.”

Men:
If he says: “I’m hungry”, he means “I’m hungry.”
If he says: “I’m tired”, he means “I’m tired.”
If he says: “I love you”, he means “Let’s have sex now.”
