Defining “girl code” is not an easy task. For one, it is a code men cannot understand. Girls often get mad when guys do not understand the girl code. Then men get mad when girls get mad for not understanding the
These codes range from subtle signals to well-known assumptions based more on myth than most men believe.
A popular one is “I don’t know.” Girls really do know but will not tell their counterparts because it was something guys should already know.
“I’m fine” may be the most popular. Most girls have said this to their boyfriends at least once. Guys, we are not fine. You probably screwed up and she is waiting for you to come to that realization and apologize. Or maybe, she’s got a PMS problem.
When she says, “I just need some space,” what they mean is space without you in it.
Sometimes the question is “Do I look fat in this dress?” Girls know they may be triggering a fight, but they still ask. When girls ask guys for their honest opinion, girls really want guys to tell them what they want to hear.
Another signal is when girls say, “We’re moving too quickly.” What she may mean by that is she’s waiting to see if this guy is interested in dating anyone or not.
If you meet a girl at a bar and after a drink or two she says “No, I’ll call you, give me your number,” then there’s a good chance she’s just looking for free drinks.
These are just a few of the things girls say that men just don’t get. So, guys, watch out for them.
