Do women say something opposite to what they mean sometimes?

If you have been with a girl for while, you might be able to grasp their meanings in a conversation. Sometimes, they don't tell you what they really want; instead, they say something that is totally opposite what they really want. For instance, my girlfriend always say I don't care you call me or not, you can choose not to call. After several days if she didn't receive my calls, she would call me and ask whether or not I was that busy. I didn't even give her a call for just a minute or two. So, sometimes, it is hard to understand what they want. Don't you experience the same out there?

As a woman I admit we do that A LOT of times but the reason is because we are trying to play reverse psychology I guess and try to get you to say what we NEED to hear. It took me years to accept that and to finally learn NOT to do it. Now I say what I mean even if my husband gets upset at me. The truth is always better than beating around the bush.

You are correct.I am a lady,and sometimes I do speak the opposite of what I want to my boyfriend.I sometimes discourage him from doing the good thing to me by speaking the opposite to see whether he do it willingly or just do what he suppose he should do .

I agree with you.I am a girl and like to say directly and clear message.I dont like to use opposite meaning.Sometimes,i get the same experience with my friend who are girls.They always make me confuse with their own words.

I admit it is much simpler when everyone says exactly what they mean but especially if a woman doesn't know of your love she will look for signs. If your girlfriend says she doesn't care if you call or not she may be reasoning that if you do call it is because you really wanted to--not just because you were expected to. I can't speak for every woman but the feeling that a man finds you irresistible is so wonderful it can't be described.

Hi, woman tend to hide real feelings or opinions, just because they need know if a man love she or not....maybe is silly, but woman are very proud sometimes, and want a man who really convince that he are in love, because man like a lot to play... if a woman will say that don t love must to look in shes eyes, there you will find the true, not on shes lips.
