14 'Innocent' Things Girls Say To Other Girls That Make Them Explode

By

You would think that as a fellow female, your girl friend would be open to your opinions and advice. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case, no matter how close you two are.

There are certain things girls are always going to butt heads over, and the sooner you realize what you should and shouldn't say, the better.

Maybe you're sugarcoating things she really needs to hear, but if you know she isn't going to listen to you anyway, what the eff is the point?

So, what are some of the typical phrases that drive girls mad? Well, they look a little something like this...

1. "I think it's time you get over it."

What you really mean: "You are acting pathetic"; "You need to grow a pair."

How she is going to take it: "You can't possibly understand what I'm going through"; "But this is different!"

Why you should stop using it: She is never, ever going to listen to you anyway.

Synonyms: "Get the f*ck over it"; "Your time of mourning has long passed."

2. "Maybe he's really just not that into you..."

What you really mean: "He's ignored every one of your last text messages -- if he wanted to make time for you, he would."

How she is going to take it: "You're fat and ugly."

Why you should stop using it: She will think she is fat and ugly.

Synonyms: "GIVE THE F*CK UP!!!!!"; "There are other fish in the sea."

3. "I'm so fat!"

What you really mean: "I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, five peanut butter M&Ms and like three pieces of licorice."

How she is going to take it: "You think I'm fat because I clearly weigh at least 15 pounds more than you."

Why you should stop using it: If you really were fat, you wouldn't be trying on a crop top.

Synonyms: "I'm so effing bloated, ugh."

4. "I'm so single it hurts!"

What you really mean: "It's been two and half hours since a guy has texted me."

How she is going to take it: Terribly, since she hasn't had a date in the past three months and can't even remember the last time she got laid.

Why you should stop using it: It. Is. Pathetic.

Synonyms: "WHY DOES NOBODY LOVE ME?!"

5. "Are you really going to eat that?"

What you really mean: "Last week you told me how fat you thought you were and now you're eating french fries?"

How she is going to take it: "I'm disgusting."

Why you should stop using it: It honestly just isn't any of your business, despite the fact you are just trying to be a good friend.

Synonyms: "Maybe you should order a side salad instead."

6. "I think you're being a little too emotional."

What you really mean: "Stop whining like a little bitch."

How she is going to take it: She will just think that she is insane.

Why you should stop using it: There is nothing that will elicit more emotion from an overly-emotional girl than telling her she is being emotional.

Synonyms: "I think you may be overreacting."

7. "You look fine."

What you really mean: "You have changed 13 times and we are now an hour late, I don't give a f*ck what you wear at this point."

How she is going to take it: That she needs to change again.

Why you should stop using it: Because you should just tell her she looks amazing so you can get to your destination.

Synonyms: "That looks good"; "I like that one the best."

8. "I'm not trying to be a bitch but..."

What you really mean: "I'm about to say a really bitchy comment but this preface excuses anything that comes afterwards."

How she is going to take it: "You're still a bitch."

Why you should stop using it: Because you already know you shouldn't be saying it.

Synonyms: "No offense, but..."

9. "I love that shirt! Where can I get it?!"

What you really mean: "You look amazing and I need that shirt so I can also look amazing too."

How she is going to take it: "Why are you so obsessed with me?"

Why you should stop using it: Imitation may be the highest form of flattery, but that usually only applies to strangers.

Synonyms: "Can I borrow it?!"

10. "Maybe you shouldn't have slept with him."

What you really mean: "He's never going to date you now!"

How she is going to take it: "I'm such a slut."

Why you should stop using it: Sleeping with someone is not indicative of whether or not that person will date you.

Synonyms: "Maybe you shouldn't have given it up so easily."

11. "Oh, you think he's cute?"

What you really mean: "Do you have beer goggles on?"

How she is going to take it: You are either, a) challenging her for this guy you didn't notice until she pointed him out or b) you are questioning and calling out her awful taste.

Why you should stop using it: She is going to pursue him regardless of your opinion.

Synonyms: "He's okay, I guess..."

12. "You could do so much better."

What you really mean: "You're settling and you know it."

How she is going to take it: "Ugh, she thinks I'm desperate for the attention of any guy..."

Why you should stop using it: It's demeaning.

Synonyms: "Maybe try for a different guy?"

13. "...I hooked up with him once."

What you really mean: "I hooked up with him enough to know it's not worth you doing."

How she is going to take it: You're jealous.

Why you should stop using it: Because she is going to simply take this as a challenge.

Synonyms: "I heard he's bad in bed..."

14. "It's not that big of a deal."

What you really mean: "You're overreacting."

How she is going to take it: You're just dismissing her feelings.

Why you should stop using it: Because if the situation were reversed, you'd be making just as big of a deal as she is.

Synonyms: "Chill the F out."; "Relax."
