The past week in particular my friends and I have been having a particularly difficult time in the dating department. So naturally we talked about everything that has been pissing us off and we got onto the topic of things that men have said to us that really pushed our buttons. We also decided on what these sayings actually mean. I myself have not heard all of these things said to me, but the majority I have. So without further ado, here are some things that men (or women) say that are complete BS in my mind.
“You can come over if you want to” = “I’m not gonna say that I want you to come over cause then that’s giving the power to you”
“Sorry I’m new at this” (referring to relationships) = “I haven’t been able to handle relationship stuff before so that’s my excuse”
When trying to make plans and they say “I don’t know what I’m going to be doing then” = “Maybe, I’ll have to see if a better option comes up before then”
“You should” or “feel free to date other people!” = “I’m very much dating other people and don’t want to feel bad about it”
“I’m not looking for anything serious” = “I’m keeping my options open until I’m convinced you’re worth it or something better comes along”
“You deserve better” = “I’m treating you poorly but not willing to do anything about it” Note – if this is coming from a friend about someone you’re dating, they really think that this person is treating you badly and you need to get out ASAP
I can’t be the only one who shares these sentiments, right?
