Men are very hard to read, because they say something and mean something else entirely. Here are some classic examples of what men say and what they actually mean.
Most women cannot understand men, and by the time they realize this, it is too late to salvage the relationship. The most baffling thing is that it is men who say that they cannot understand women. Compared to their double speak, women can be said to be rather uncomplicated. Men can go to devious heights when they are chasing the object of their desire, but once they get into a relationship, they become complacent and gradually lose interest.
