Decoding 10 Phrases that Guys often Use


It is often said that it is difficult to understand girls, but decoding men is also not that easy. They will sway you with their charm and sweet talk. But ladies, they may not always mean what they say. There can be various versions to it. So, read on to unlock the hidden meaning behind some of the phrases which men use often.

1. “I am not looking for anything serious right now”

If a guy utters these words, it is an indication that he just wants to have a physical relationship and nothing more. A serious relationship is definitely not on his mind! And, if you still hang out with him after this statement, he will assume that you too are interested in a ‘no strings attached’ relationship.

2. “You know I have a memory problem”

He will remember how many cars went flying in the last action flick he saw or the number of girls he has went around with, but he will suffer from memory loss when it comes to remembering your birthday or the anniversary. So, it is his way out to save himself from the argument and the impending fight. Oh! Yes there will be a ‘puppy-eyed’ look to go with this line as well.

3. “I don’t want to ruin our friendship"

Yes, this is the common phrase which almost every man uses. When a guy talks about friendship even before you mention it, it simply means that he is not interested in dating you. If a man is attracted to you, he would always stay away from the friendship zone.

4. “I am sorry”

This is the best weapon that guys use to get over with an argument. Sometimes, he might genuinely mean it, but rest of the time it is just a way to put a full stop to a dispute.

5. “She looked quite familiar”

So, you caught him ogling at another girl, yet again, and he says, "I think I know her.” Well, high chances are that he is lying to you and he was just checking her out. She was not someone whom he knew, but he certainly wished he did (maybe even before you came around).

6. “I’m still getting over a bad breakup”

Well this is their choicest weapon. He likes you, but he also wants to keep his options open alongside. So, start looking for signs if he is using his ‘bad breakup’ time and again. He will use it when he needs sympathy or when he wants his ‘space’, and even when he is looking for a way out of making a commitment to you.

7. “It's not you, it’s me”

Whenever a guy breaks up, he will take all the blame on himself. He will do that to spare himself the horror of an 'ugly scene'. But in reality, it might even be you and your behaviour that led to the break up. A guy would never confess it, but this is a harsh truth.

8. "Right now the economy is terrible"

If things are not falling into place, especially on the work front, a man will usually blame the economy if he has no one else to blame. Well, he might use the same excuse if he is not looking for anything serious with you as well. He can even blame the economy for not making a marriage commitment to you. So, time to open up the 'financial' pages of the newspaper, we say!

9. “I need some space”

One fine day if your man says that he needs some space, it simply means you are suffocating him. So, leave him alone at times. After all, guys too need some time alone to rejuvenate and relax. And, if he uses this again and again, then it is clearly a sign that he is using it to get away from you.

10. “I love you”

These three words can be deceiving at times. If a guy says he loves you while getting laid or when he wants to get laid, then it simply means ‘nothing’. But, if he confesses his feelings with your clothes on, then he surely is head over heels in love with you.

Now you know what your man means, if he is using these phrases more than often. Also tell us, what other phrases your guy has been using these days? If you want, we will try to decode those for you, as well!
