Like I'm under the impression that men are fairly simple and what they say is what they mean.
there's this guy from work and whenever he tells me something, maybe a compliment or whatever I always like say its B. S. and when I see him on his phone I always tell him he's texting his hoes and he tells me he doesn't. He tells me how frustrating it is because he has to constantly tell me that he's serious and what not.
So I just wanted to know, are men really all that simple. When they say something hey mean it and they'll tell you they're kidding when they are?

Sort of, but that's not what's going on here. He seems to lack the social awareness that you're teasing in a playful way. Doesn't make him a bad person, but many men would pick up on it.
As for whether men have secret messages in conversation, they do, without realizing it. While female conversations tend to have a subtext of 'what is the strength of our relationship/friendship/etc', male conversations tend to have a subtext about power - who is higher status, and how high status is the group in the conversation relative to others.0

men don't play games, they say shit like it is and don't sugar coat it so if he's saying something. you take it as a compliment and don't start with that B. S bullshit. men have no reason to lie. it's the women you gotta watch out for.1
