15 Things Guys Say And What They Actually Mean

We at Her Campus have been doing our research to try and decipher the mysteries of the male mind. Did he mean “See ya later” or “See you later” – the timeless conundrum? Obviously, in an ideal world, if you don’t understand what he means, just ask! But if that fails, here’s just a brief run down of what he probably means. Take it with a pinch (or a heap) of salt though.

  1. “I don’t care what you wear” –

    He means: “To be honest, right now I’m just worried about the time. I probably won’t really notice what you’re wearing so can we just go now?”

  2. “She’s just a friend”-

    He means: “She is really just a friend. If we’d had sex, we probably wouldn’t still be friends”

  3. “I never masturbate”-

    He means: “I masturbate quite a lot.”

  4. “I never watch porn”-

    He means: “I watch porn but I don’t want you to feel insecure.”

  5. “I’m really tired”

    He means: “I still want sex, obviously. But you go on top?”

  6. “I’ll call you”

    He means: “I’m definitely not going to call you. I might message. But don’t hold your breath.”


  7. “I’m not really looking for a relationship right now”

    He means: “I’m not really interested in you but I don’t want you to think it’s your fault.

  8. “I’m fine”

    He means: “I’m not fine, but I don’t wanna talk about it with you and I’m not gonna tell you what is going on.”

  9. “Netflix and chill?”

    He means: “Come over and have sex with me”

  10. “I’m hungry”

    He means: “Make me something to eat”

  11. “How do you know that guy?”

    He means: “Have you slept with him?”

  12. “I didn’t notice her”

He means: “Of course I saw her, but I’m never gonna tell you that I found her attractive.”

13. “You can really eat”

He means: “I really like that I can get a lot of food and you will share it with me”

14. “It’s a long story.”

He means: “I don’t wanna get into it because I know it will make me look bad.”

15. “Let me give you a massage”
