Guys are never direct. Everything that comes out of their mouth has a different meaning. Moreover, us women have tried time and time again to understand what they want out of a relationship. With men, it seems you can never take what they tell you at face value; it would be more helpful if women carried translators to figure out what a guy was really saying. We hope the following cheat sheet will help you decipher what your college man means but does not say.
