"I'm Fine" - What Does She Actually Mean?

Us girls are not always 'straight-talkers'. There are times when we feel we can't really say what we want to say, but the person we're talking to should understand us anyway. This is particularly true about talking to boys. So listen up guys, when a girl says any of these things, you should know what she actually means. Don't say you weren't warned...

1. I'm fine = She is not fine. I repeat, she is not fine. She is nowhere near fine. Fix this!

2. I'm afraid of ruining what we have = Stop trying to get out of the friend zone, please & thank you.

3. It's not you, it's me = It's totally you, I just don't want to be rude about it.

4. I bet your girlfriend hates that = Are you single?

5. I just think it's funny how = 100% guaranteed, she does not find it funny... at all.


6. You do whatever you think is right = Do what I want to do, because that's clearly the right thing.

7. I don't care = I'm done talking about this.

8. What's the story with ***? = I absolutely hate ***, why do you hang around with him/her?

9. So **** is really pretty = Do you fancy her?

10. Maybe we should go on a break = I don't want to be with you anymore.

11. OK = Same as number 7.

12. He was coming on to me all night = I want to show you how lucky you are and maybe make you a bit jealous?

13.  I really hope we can stay friends = I like you, just not enough to keep going out with you.

14. I'm so cold = Give me your hoodie.

15. Whatever = I'm done talking about this, but you know I'm right.
