Text In The City's Guide To Understing - What He Says vs What He Really Means
Submitted On 2007-04-30

He Says, He Means

He says: "We should see other people just so we know we are right for each other." He means: I think I am interested in someone else, and I don't want you to feel I am being deceitful.

He says: "Are you close to your family?" He means: Have you talked about me yet? And, are you bringing me home to meet them?

He says: "Let's meet at the bar, I'll be there with friends." He means: I don't want to give you the wrong idea, this is by no means a date.

He says: "We are separated, but we are still living together due to financial reasons." He means: I want it all. My family and you.

He says: "I can't see you on the weekends because I like to spend time with my friends, but we can go out during the week." He means: I have other plans on the weekends, and I am not willing to make you a priority quite yet.

He says: "I would love to be intimate with you, but I don't want it to ruin our friendship." He means: The thought of sleeping with you doesn't interest me, but since I do enjoy hanging out, I am letting you down as gently as possible.

He says: "You have such perfect lips." He means: I can't wait to kiss them all night long.

He says: "I don't mind if you go out with the girls. Seriously, have a great time tonight." He means: I will be going out with the boys, either tonight or in the near future and you won't be able to say anything about it.

He says: "Guys check you out all the time, I am so lucky to be with you." He means: Please reassure me that you are not interested in anyone else. I have too much pride to ask.

He says: "I really love our time together." He means: You are very special to me and I want to keep seeing you.

He says: "Call me after girl's night out, I want to make sure you get home okay." He means: I want to make sure you are in lockdown and home alone!

He says: "I meant to call you this weekend, but I lost track of time." He means: I didn't lose track of time, I just didn't feel like it.

He says: "Give me a call sometime." He means: I am not interested enough to chase you, but you can chase me if you want to.

He says: "I don't like to cuddle after sleeping with you." He means: I have no problem sleeping with you, but I am not capable of displaying my emotional feelings at this point.

He says: "I would love to get married, but it's not the right time with where I am in my life." He means: It will probably never be the right time, because you're not the right girl for me. So, I am using this excuse to buy myself more time until I meet someone I truly want to marry.

He says: "I am so unhappy at home. I wish my girlfriend/wife were more like you." He means: I want to sleep with you, and I don't want you to feel guilty about it.

He says (on or/ before a first date): "I have never felt this way before. You don't know how you make me feel, it's driving me crazy." He means: I have felt this way before, but I still REALLY want to sleep with you.
