Girls are confusing and difficult.

13 Things Girls Say But Don't Actually Mean

Girls are confusing and difficult. Everyone knows it, even the girls who are extra hard to deal with. We say things we don't mean, and we think that guys will understand, but they don't. Only girls know how girls think, guys will never understand.

Here are some of the classic phrases girls say and the actual translations of them:

1. Fine

Discussion is over, stop talking

2. Do what you want, idc.

SHE CARES!!! She's testing you to see your judgment. Don't mess this up.

3. I'm almost ready

She probably isn't ready, and won't be until she is. Don't rush her or she'll just get aggravated.

4. We'll talk about this later

She doesn't want you to speak to her at the moment. She needs space to think about what just happened and how much of an idiot you are.

5. Nothing

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F06%2F6362435741766900261952597375_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=214&h=91d4c71b262e081766e250a41e02aa0315c74f0218653a17d21b3e46c1eb8cd3&size=980x&c=2209051682 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F06%252F6362435741766900261952597375_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D214%26h%3D91d4c71b262e081766e250a41e02aa0315c74f0218653a17d21b3e46c1eb8cd3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2209051682%22%7D" expand=1]

She doesn't want to tell you what's making her upset, because it's probably everything and too hard to explain.

6. What did you just say?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F06%2F636243574778003403766860595_Ron-Burgundy-What-Did-You-Say-Anchorman.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=963&h=1e90f842cfd43a5f8586c5b24769a2596763727fa4a66acb8a22430d0f7be84f&size=980x&c=1445839718 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F06%252F636243574778003403766860595_Ron-Burgundy-What-Did-You-Say-Anchorman.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D963%26h%3D1e90f842cfd43a5f8586c5b24769a2596763727fa4a66acb8a22430d0f7be84f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1445839718%22%7D" expand=1]

You just said something really messed up, and she is giving you one last chance to change your phrase. Don't be stupid.

7. I'm not mad

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F06%2F636243576163106043994038430_latest%3Fcb%3D20140531000311&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=332&h=851c28e9bad8d4de72d3aceb9cbb9b7f5cca2599163c14df59af2d956475f461&size=980x&c=256367827 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F06%252F636243576163106043994038430_latest%253Fcb%253D20140531000311%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D332%26h%3D851c28e9bad8d4de72d3aceb9cbb9b7f5cca2599163c14df59af2d956475f461%26size%3D980x%26c%3D256367827%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

She's actually furious or disappointed in you.

8. Do you think she's pretty?

Don't answer that question!!! This is your chance to tell her she's the most beautiful girl you've ever seen and that no one can compare to her.

9. I forgive you.

She may forgive you and move on from it. But just know she'll use this against you for the rest of your life.

10. I'm fine

She's not fine, and she won't be fine until you comfort her and make her feel safe. She wants to talk about it but doesn't want to bother you. Let her know you're there for her and always will be there to talk.

11. No

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F06%2F636243579500201559-1963868060_no-gif-todd-stashwick-supernatural-shapeshifter-dracula.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=986&h=bfaa36f06d068ef97e7cf38132b7eb3b002ca51e844870219b43739f454a3abf&size=980x&c=2060264302 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F06%252F636243579500201559-1963868060_no-gif-todd-stashwick-supernatural-shapeshifter-dracula.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D986%26h%3Dbfaa36f06d068ef97e7cf38132b7eb3b002ca51e844870219b43739f454a3abf%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2060264302%22%7D" expand=1]

NO MEANS NO!! NO IF, ANDS OR BUTS ABOUT IT! No isn't a maybe, it's a NO!

12. Nothing is wrong, I'm just tired

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F06%2F636244186000595056-738534027_tumblr_o8mfboIg9X1vq4y18o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=388&h=d2a38eafa34549326031665792fc813b1d8efc71efb9393b9cb980e8345cba2b&size=980x&c=994890785 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F06%252F636244186000595056-738534027_tumblr_o8mfboIg9X1vq4y18o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D388%26h%3Dd2a38eafa34549326031665792fc813b1d8efc71efb9393b9cb980e8345cba2b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D994890785%22%7D" expand=1]

She's in a bad mood, back away.

13. I don't know

She doesn't want to tell you, so just let it be.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

Calling all babies born June 21st - July 22nd!

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
