I know the word "fine" is used a lot by women and when a man hears this word...a man knows she disapproves of either something he has said, done or forgot to do...many times a man is left guessing and it's as if some women think men can read their minds vote now
If there's one thing everyone can agree on about females, it's that when they say they're fine, they are most certainly not fine.
We women say we're fine because we expect our questioner to basically read our minds and know exactly what is going on. Usually this phrase comes from a boyfriend or close friend who should be well aware of how we're feeling at any given moment.
As ridiculous as this may sound, we don't really give a sh*t because we're upset and the whole world should halt for that.
We do realize how counterproductive this is, as we get even more frustrated when no one is able to figure out what's really bothering us. But hey, that's just the harsh world we're living in. Of course, there are women out there who are upfront with their feelings, but this post isn't for them. So, before you go shouting at me, take a breath. Moving on...
What do women really mean when they say they're fine? Well, here are some possible explanations:
1. She's testing you A woman often uses this expression to see if you can figure out exactly why she is feeling this way. If you are a boyfriend, you better know that she's thinking -- you've been dating long enough to deem this perfectly acceptable. Yeah, this totally sounds like a rational methodology.
2. She's tired Hell hath no fury like a woman who didn't get enough sleep. We are irritable, cranky and most definitely going to take it out on you if and when you annoy us. Of course, it would be easier to just let you know we're tired, but honestly, you probably wouldn't even believe we could get this bitchy due to lack of sleep.
3. She doesn't want to argue Instead of engaging in a long, drawn-out discussion that will inevitably turn into an argument, a woman will just claim she's fine, so you stop talking. Accept your victory and move on. This does not mean you get to bring up said argument at a later time because you will get no further response, anyway.
4. She's f*cking pissed If said woman in question is exhibiting her bitchy resting face while claiming she is fine, she is not f*cking fine. In fact, it is quite the opposite
