These 5 Phrases Can Mean Very Different Things Depending On Your Gender

Men and women are wired to think differently.

“Let’s Talk”

 these 5 phrases can mean very different things depending on your gender

Him: For a man, any dialogue means an issue to be solved. So if they hear this phrase, they instantly think something is wrong.

Her: Communication for a woman is a means of bonding with her partner. Therefore, an offer to talk may not bear any purpose, and a rejection upsets her.

 

“You Don’t Listen to Me”

these 5 phrases can mean very different things depending on your gender

Him: Men perceive information better by silently contemplating the subject matter, often seeming inattentive because of that, but in fact, they listen closely.

Her: A woman usually expresses her concern through gestures and exclamations, taking the talk personally. Men often don’t understand such behaviour and can sometimes get annoyed.

 

“Let’s Be Quiet For A While”

these 5 phrases can mean very different things depending on your gender

Him: Men rarely say it with any implication. Usually, they need that moment of silence to get over stress or think over a problem.

Her: Women often try to manipulate men with silence, while their partners simply don’t understand such behaviour.

 

“Let’s Discuss It Later”

these 5 phrases can mean very different things depending on your gender

Him: Men find it hard to multitask and juggle several thoughts at once. "Later" means just that, because their mind is currently busy with something else.

Her: Multitasking is common for women, and they can easily switch back and forth between tasks. That’s why a suggestion to discuss something later sounds like an insult to them.

“It’s Okay”

these 5 phrases can mean very different things depending on your gender

 

Him: Men are less emotional, and this is also reflected in their speech. They have fewer epithets in their everyday vocabulary, and words like “okay“ or ”fine“ are normal for them.

Her: A woman says about 20,000 words a day, which is 1.5 times more than a man does. To express every emotion vividly, ladies use words like “extraordinary”, ”marvelous“, and so on, while ”okay" can be perceived as rude.
