So I went to Fry's Electronics to pick up some things. When I come out of the store a man approaches me wanting to take my picture to show his wife. He has been trying to talk her into letting him get a skirt. He thought it was so cool. and it sure made me feel good. Of course I am very comfortable with wearing the skirt in public.

Here's a possible good story about a 14 year old boy who wears his sister's clothing and the angst his mother feels at the situation. (It is quite long so get that cuppa ready)

Unfortunately, the initial poster stopped adding to this thread in 2012 after about 6 weeks chatting about her predicament so we have no idea about how it all finally ends - though it seems to be going OK

Not necessarily. I have had all sorts of reactions - MOH wouldn't dream of going to her sisters, her parents are both dead so she really has nowhere to go but there are more subtle ways of getting her feelings across and she is well trained in all of them ( I think that it's part of their training sometime between learning to talk and maturity )! :roll:

"THE MEANINGS OF WORDS WOMEN USE
FINE This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
FIVE MINUTES This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.
NOTHING This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine"
GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows! ) This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"
GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows) This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
LOUD SIGH This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing"
SOFT SIGH Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content.
THAT'S OKAY This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow."
GO AHEAD! At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
PLEASE DO This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay"
THANKS A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome.
THANKS A LOT This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing" "

I think I could add another entry:

"COMPLETE SILENCE Again not a word but another non-verbal statement with several meanings - none of them good. For example, with raised eyebrows it is daring you to go ahead with whatever was being discussed and without raised eyebrows it is demonstrating a defiantly obstinate certainty that she is right and you only have two brain cells and neither of them is connected. Either way retribution will follow in a time and place of her choosing, usually when you have completely forgotten about it."

Does anyone else have any words of non-verbal communications that could be added? :?:
