Men are actually very simple human beings – their thought process is pretty straightforward. Even science has proven that men always opt for the simplest route when it comes to problem solving.

However, there are times when they say certain things that make us wonder if what they’re saying is actually what they mean.

Nigerian men can sometimes be ambiguous

Being that they’re very diplomatic as well, they have a way of masking the real meaning of what they’re trying to say behind humour or exaggerated compliments.

Fellow ladies, let’s learn together what our Nigerian men really mean when they tell us any of the following.

1. “You really like this dress. It’s actually nice on you sha.”

Translation: Why do you keep wearing this dress? Yes, it’s fine but can you just wear something else? You have a closet full of clothes but you have turned this dress into your uniform. Ahn ahn!

2. “I’m sorry. It’s my fault.”

Translation: I’m tired of arguing with you and if I don’t cut you short, we’ll continue this argument till we’re both 80 years old. So I’m declaring you the winner. Are you happy now?

3. “I was just joking o!”

Translation: Oh boy, see yawa! I was actually trying to use humour to tell you what I genuinely think and you saw through it. This is my way of backtracking before you rain fire on me. Auntie no vex.

4. “Can we please talk about this later?”

Translation: I beg you in the name of all that is holy…can you please kindly and sweetly just shut the f*ck up? Thank you.

5. “You actually look beautiful without makeup”

Translation: Don’t get me wrong. I like it when you use makeup, but please don’t paint your face too much like a clown. Plus I may want to kiss you later and all that stuff will end up all over me. Maybe you should just use a little.

6. “Let me cook you dinner”

Translation: Oya come to my place so we can have sex. Food is the last thing on my mind right now.
