Nine Words Women Use

This list is floating around the Internet, and I just had to share it with all of you women out there! Whoever wrote this sure got it right!

The nine words women use:

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

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

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.

This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

To keep reading,

This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal 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.)

This is one of the most dangerous statements a women 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.

A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome.

Is a women's way of saying #@!% YOU!

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.

Since I know you have said each one of these nine words at least once, tell me which number is your all time favorite response!

I first saw this list about 2 years ago. It's a great one! I use these words when my husband and I are not getting along but other than, I don't. That is only a couple minutes a month, not very often.

"nine words in a list used to stereotype women unnecessarily" sogracefully, you have a good point, but I guess people just like belonging. It's like horoscopes - people like to find themselves in a list. There were worse stereotypes out there, so while I agree, I guess I'm just letting it go. Sure, I say lots of these things, but so does my husband, particularly the 5 minutes thing. For him, it's "it'll take 2 seconds" if it's going to be about 5 minutes, and "it'll take 2 minutes" if it will take anywhere between 10 minutes and an hour.

"you can't tell a man that something is "fine" and then get mad when they do it. that is ridiculous." I agree. That's why I don't use words/phrases like this. There's nothing I hate more than being told "Go ahead" and then the person getting pissed when I actually go ahead and do it. Applies to both males and females, by the way. Don't tell me you're fine and then get pissed when I believe you.

I have to say I am with Greggie on this one. "Say what you mean, and mean what you say" is my motto for communication.

why do women do this? men like it when women say what they actually want to say. why would a rational woman say "code words" that clearly mean something else, when they actually say what is going on. i've found that it is much better to be honest and blunt in a relationship and not say "fine" or "go ahead" when i don't really mean it. you can't tell a man that something is "fine" and then get mad when they do it. that is ridiculous.

"nine words in a list used to stereotype women unnecessarily" sogracefully - right on. I've seen men use these. It's really not exclusive to one gender over the other. What's with the "Those crazy, irrational women! They'll mess with your head, fellas!" tone? Dear douche bag who wrote the list: #@!% YOU! Sincerely, Looseseal A cousin of mine is always sending me stupid list spams like this - he's now on my blocked junk mail list.

Oh, man. I use all of those except for "Go ahead," the five minute rule, and the loud sigh. I usually do an eye roll instead of the sigh. My boyfriend was reading this over my shoulder and he kept chuckling. He says he always knows something is wrong when I say "nothing" or "fine."
