Are guys really simple and say what they mean?

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.

  • 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.

  • At 13, you are too young to be able to make any judgement on this. The fact that you work tells me you didn't give your real age. That said, some men are simple and there are women out there who like simple men. I find simple women quite boring. Each of us look for different things. Lastly, men are no different than women. Some lie and some don't.

  • You aren't talking about men you're talking about boys. Don't make judgements about men as a whole based on the actions of some 13 year old boy.

    I couldn't even begin to decipher this question.

    • I'm actually 20, I accidentally messed up and put 13 😪

    • Nevermind then. That makes more sense- coming from a thirteen year old this question struck me as really odd

      It sounds like he's being direct with you. Why do you assume he's texting his hoes?

  • Guys generally don't talk in cryptic messages that need deciphered unlike girls (that should really cut that shit out, it's annoying to the point I would rather just jack off). Take anything they say at face value, good or bad, unless they tell you they are joking right after.

  • It's entirely a matter of perspective. I think most normal people tend to be straightforward if they intend to do so. I always say what i mean, that is to say, when im not emotionally swayed. If I'm clearheaded, you'll get exactly what I'm thinking. If I'm angry, upset, or trying to impress, the lines become askew, and sometimes i say things i dont mean, or rather, wouldn't mean in a clear stste of mind. Honesty is definitely influenced by a person's overall state of mind. And i think most people would agree.

  • Saying what you mean doesn't make you 'simple', it just stops people from getting frustrated because they don't have to read into EVERYTHING you say to them.
