Translating Man-Speak: What He Is Really Trying to Tell You

Things He Never Wants to Hear

Here's what he really doesn't want to hear from you (and probably won't hear anyway):

Honey, we have to talk. No, YOU have to talk -- and talk and talk and talk

What are you thinking about?: His feelings, like his answers, will be simple. So if you are lying in postcoital comfort and he answers, "Pizza," he really means he is thinking about pizza and not that you have skin that resembles pizza or you look like you've eaten one too many pies in your life.

Do you think that girl is pretty?: He thinks that if he even hesitates to say no, it will kill his chances of sex that night -- or any other night.

I want to get married: He already assumes this is what you want, he just doesn't want to hear it. So you only have to notify him if this is NOT the case.

How do I look -- honestly?: Honestly, you look wonderful to him. That's why he's with you
