This is intended as a small add-on to complement Terri's fantastic post about Woman-speak, where she explains the intricacies of how women communicate with their partners.
For those women who may not fully understand what a man means when he says something, here are a few examples of "Man-speak".
Do you want me to pick anything up from the shops on my way home? I want sex tonight.
It is OK, I will cook tonight, you go and put your feet up. I want sex tonight, so save some energy.
Of course it is OK if you go out tonight, I can look after the kids! I want sex tonight, and if you go out for a few drinks...
Is it OK if I wash this with the whites? I REALLY want sex tonight so I am impressing you with what a really great husband I am.
I think we ran out of polish when I was dusting earlier. I need it so bad it hurts!
I thought I would do that (insert DIY job you have been asking him to do for the last 2 years) today. If I don't get it tonight I think my b%$£s will explode.
So, ladies, I hope that clears up the grey areas of male conversation for you. Perhaps your weekend will be a little better as a result of this new information. Please let me know!
