Have you ever asked your girlfriend if she’s okay and then she says, “I’m okay”? You’ve probably experienced this several times in your relationship. Let’s face it. Men can always know if the answer “I’m fine” is not what a woman means. But why do women do that?
Why he says “I’m fine, but it means the opposite
There are times when women are really good. But, most of the time men are really nervous when they get this answer because there is a good chance that something is wrong. If your spouse has this habit, there is an explanation:
1. He thinks he is overreacting.
Over the years, women have been told that they react constantly or are too emotional. Maybe your girlfriend is saying she’s okay (though not) because she feels like you won’t recognize how she feels.
This is good advice to remember. If you know your wife isn’t okay, never tell her she’s being too emotional because that hurts.
2. You haven’t figured out how it really feels.
“I’m fine” could also mean he hasn’t figured things out yet. She may still be confused or in the process of assessing the situation. In this case, you should give it more time until you know exactly what is happening to you internally and externally.
3. He has no energy to explain everything.
She’s just tired. He still doesn’t have the energy to tell you everything. Maybe you need some time to rest. And then you can share everything that’s going on with her.
Whatever the case, you need to be proactive if you know your spouse is having a hard time. Whether you need emotional comfort or just someone to talk to, you need to be present. Don’t think about yourself at the moment and focus on what your wife needs. For more tips on dating and relationships, read other blog posts.
