This is a good one for you ladies who want to get a better understanding of men. It’s all about Men’s Speech Patterns.
We all know how men say one thing when they really mean another, or say something because they are too chicken to tell the truth, or admit the truth.
Well, here are some of those things that men say, together with the real meaning behind them. Hopefully it will give you a better understanding of men’s speech patterns and what they really mean.
