  • You use maybe or perhaps to indicate that something is possible, although you are not certain about it.

  • When I was a kid "Maybe" usually meant "Yes" but it was a long term reward based on behaviour - Another evil trick by my mother extracting a week of good behaviour for something she was going to give me anyway.

  • When I say maybe to someone it's often a no, well for the most part any how. When it comes to going to a party however, I do say yes most of the time, but end up not going like half the time XD. I'm terrible with that yeah...

  • Unfortunately it's often a careful way of saying no.
    The person will not feel upset and if you don't contact him or her again, the problem is solved...

  • Maybe means more yes than no.
    Think of it that way : if you really don't want something, you just say no. "Maybe" means that there is a possibility, even a nearly non-existant one, but still.
