What is the secret of women? I asked someone in my taxicab if he knew, and he said he was gay and had no idea. “Don’t even ask me about women,” he said. “That’s why I’m gay.” I’ve asked other people, too. One guy sort of smirked and said he has no problem with women at all. Yet he couldn’t (or wouldn’t) say any more. The thing is, human beings have been around more than half a million years, and I’m just wondering if comedies, such as “There’s Something About Mary,” are the best we can do? At the other extreme we have Shakespeare’s love sonnets. Yet seeing such movies, or reading those poems, don’t really help a person in day-to-day life, when we actually meet women. It’s as if they have some kind of radar attuned to something, yet you just can’t tell what it is. Maybe the San Francisco Bay area simply isn’t such a good place to hit it off with women. You’d think it would be a lot easier. And please, don’t start thinking there’s something wrong with me, because there isn’t. I’ve had girlfriends I’ve been crazy about, and who have been crazy about me, yet even then, I could not tell you in words, why.
Thanks for such a well-written and interesting question. This may well have been the “original question” if Adam and Eve once existed. Obviously this has been debated throughout history and if a definitive answer had been found, we would have been taught it in high school. I shall now provide you with a variety of answers to this age-old enigma…

The secret of women’s language: Keywords and their meanings – FINE: This is a word a woman uses at the end of any argument that she feels she is in the right about but needs to shut you up. NEVER use fine to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.
