This page has a very interesting take on the woman-to-english translation business. Here are some highlights so you understand what i mean:
She says – English
We need – I want
It’s your decision – The correct decision should be obvious by now
Do what you want – You’ll pay for this later
You’re…so manly – You need a shave and you sweat a lot.
I’m not emotional! And I’m not overreacting! – I have PMS.
I heard a noise – I noticed you were almost asleep.
In answer to the question “What’s wrong?”
The same old thing. Nothing.
Nothing. – Everything.
Everything. – My PMS is acting up.
Nothing, really. – It’s just that you’re such a jerk.
I don’t want to talk about it. – Go away, I’m still building up evidence against you.
…of course my wonderful lynn would never say anything except exactly what she meant. she’s perfect.
