I found this quite amusing.. a bit like the what women say and really mean

I can see how people could be confused...



but then a lot of language is down to body language, like the other day my hubby brought me back a jumper from us and asked if i like it... i said yeah its lovely and he burst out laughing as he could see from my face my true feeling... It was a nice thought but im in my 20's and the jumper was something my nan might wear!!

Re: I found this quite amusing.. a bit like the what women say and really mean

Guys buy clothes for their partners that they find good looking on their partners, not because their partners would find it good looking on themselves....

You may want to sit down and have a little talk.....



(yes, yes, its a huge generalisation)

Sorry about the move but this has nothing to do with Switzerland and nothing to do with learning the local languages here.
If another Mod prefers Jokes/Funnies be my guest and move it again. I think it is too serious for that.

LOL My man buys me blouses with quick release domes. He says it's for the convenience!

I personally find the blouses are cut wrong for my shape
