‘Mansplaining’ is when a man tries to explain something to a woman that she already understands, but from his point of view. It’s often condescending, overconfident or totally inaccurate! This mansplained is man speak explained when dating. I will translate common phrases or questioning when dating.

I’m really busy at the moment.

You are not a priority. I’ll get to you when I get to you, if I do. 

I’m just seeing what’s out there.

– This is the equivalent of girls shopping and ‘just looking’. They really don’t want anything or don’t know what they want. They are just attracted by the cuts and colours. 

I’m a bricklayer/concreter on winter holidays, it’s too wet to work.

-I get paid as a casual and can’t be bothered to pick up full time work so I stay at home smoking and drinking when I don’t feel like it. Might have a side job dealing drugs.

Where do you live?

-How easy will it be to booty call you?

How long have you been single?

-Have you still got game? Or will you be a stage one clinger?

I’m looking for a gym buddy.

-You must already be fit and hot and admire my muscles. You’ll come to the gym with me so we can both show off together. 

Do you want to come to my place?

-I’m trying to work out how easy you are.

Do you like camping?

-How high maintenance are you and will you rough it (whilst still looking hot)?

What do you do on weekends?

-Do you have friends?

Do you play any sport? What footy team do you follow?

-Will you whinge and nag when I go to games? Can I take you to games with the boys?

Can you drive a manual car?

-You won’t be able to drive my car when I get pissed. 

Do you live near your work?

-You will be tired and grumpy every day. 

What time did you get home (Saturday night?)

-How much of a party animal are you?

I like banter.

-Will you talk dirty to me?

Been around the world, don’t speak the language
But your booty don’t need explaining
All I really need to understand is
When you talk dirty to me
