The following article comes from It is about common female phrases and how to interpret them. This post is your chance to ask about both male and female phrases and ask readers for advice on what it means.


Learn to Decode Common Female Phrases
Guys. If someone compiled a dictionary full of “female-to-male” translations, you’d be the first one in line to buy it, right? Well, here's a piece on how to decode some common female phrases, courtesy of Rodale Publications.

The first confusing female phrase: “I’m between relationships.” What this really means is “I’m interested in you, but I haven’t made up my mind, yet.” Basically, she’s not sure if she wants to date you. Maybe she was hurt in a past relationship. Or maybe she’s worried dating someone will take focus away from her budding career. However, if she thought you were completely repulsive, she probably would’ve said “I don’t have time for a relationship.” So although she’s put up a wall, there’s an open window in that wall. So how can you get through that window? Invite her and her friends to a barbecue at your place. If you can win over her friends with your sparkling wit and unavoidable charm, she’ll probably give you a shot.

“I’ve been dying to see that movie!” Translation: “Ask me out!” Guys! She’s not gushing over “The Kingdom” for her health! Communications professor Dr. Narissra Carter says any unsolicited desire a woman expresses about a movie or a new restaurant is often an invitation to ask her out. So guys, if she says she’s dying to see a movie, you’d be wise to say “Me too! How about we go next Friday?”

“I’ve been out a couple of times with this one guy, but we’re not exclusively dating.” What this means is: “I’m dating a little, but it’s nothing serious. So if you impress me, I might date YOU exclusively.” Guys, how should you handle this one? Ask her to help you shop for a tie. Shopping is something you’d do with a boyfriend or girlfriend. So if the two of you participate in a relationship-type activity, she’ll naturally picture the two of YOU in a relationship.
