What He Says Vs. What He Really Means….

Ever had a guy say one of these typical phrases and wondered what he meant?

  • “You’re kind of intimidating”
  • “How come you’re still single?”
  • “I’m just having fun in my dating life right now…”

Well, you’re in luck. I teamed up with the hilarious Anna Akana this week to bring you a sketch that will translate male language so that you know exactly what’s in a man’s mind…

  15. Catarina says:

    Hi Matt
    This is a pretty good one. It’s fun how men actually don’t mean what they say eventhough everbody says you should take them by their words.
    I like that you try to build women’s confidence by becoming a high quality woman.

  16. Heather says:

    ROTFLMAO! BEST HUSSEY VIDEO EVER!!! Too true and too funai!

  17. ABee says:

    Great video!

    Not sure the best way to suggest something, but can you do a video on the different types of kisses and what they mean to a guy? I.e. Forehead kiss, light kiss on the neck, french, peck, etc.

  18. Heather says:

    Damn it Matt !!!
    Now I have to
    Follow Anna!!
    I am just getting to much advice.!!
    At least now,
    I’ll stay for shots
    and call Uber.!!


  19. Tiffany says:

    Omg this was hilarious!!!! I loved it!

  20. Cathy says:

    OMG hilarious!!! Matthew and Jamison, you guys are awesome!

  21. Jen says:

    Perfect comedy duo. Thanks for the laugh you two x

  22. emma says:

    Hi Matt, first of all love the Video, also checked out Anna Akana channel which I love!

    I don’t know how or where to send you ideas for videos, and I have quite a weired question to ask and don’t feel like adding this in a comment, can we (the followers) message ideas for videos to you via private messages on twitter or facebook? It would be great!

    But other than that I have purchased your script litterally yesterday and I am already seeing results and also have been reasured that I wasn’t too far off. But sometime just a word instead of an other make a massive difference, or things you decide not to write ;)

    FYI I am french so technically I translate your ideas in french and it still works so maybe there is something to work on here maybe you should try to see if you can partner with someone to translate your book and programms ;) !!


  23. Auntie mandy says:

    #best #video #ever !!!

    Literally tickled me to my core. Best one so far by a clear mile! #barehilare

    Love, love, love.

    I laughed outloud.
    Super funny while being very insightful.

    Great video Matt as usual Great response to the “why are you single?”

  29. A. says:

    That was great! And I want the ‘seriously’ t-shirt. LOL.

  30. Lisa says:

    I got this from a casual acquaintance “I actually like you” WTF??

  31. Sharon says:

    Freaking AMAZING!!!! One of THE best videos you’ve done! Hilarious… Bravo xo

  32. Jennifer says:

    OMG! Hilarious!

  33. Jillian says:

    One of your best videos! I have gotten ALL of those from guys (a few of them from the same guy). Wished I would’ve known what they all meant before I started to fall for the guys.

  34. Sarah says:

    I could not hold the laughter in when he hits him in the crotch at the end. Have wanted to do this so. many. times. for all these reasons.

    Thanks for the laugh today! I needed that!

  35. Marie says:

    Omg you’re best video yet! I watched it twice which was a first! Loved it and all the man translations! XOXO (means XOXO..:-)

  36. Jennifer says:

    I’ve always wondered about the comments on intimidating.
    Thank you for explaining!

  37. Tammy says:

    Awesome video, as usual. I love the perfectly direct explanations. Thanks Matthew & Anna.

  38. Ileen says:

    Luv the videos. I need that dictionary!

  39. Araceli says:

    Great video Matthew! Looking forward to more video colaboration with you and the lovely Anna Akana! Love you both!!

  40. Natalie says:

    Loved it! Perfect, direct, explanations.
    Thank you!

  41. Golak Nadery says:

    Your videos are getting better in every way possible ( this is not me putting pressure). The comedic timing on this was genius and thank you for debunking those oft-used phrases. Could use more of these, pretty please!

  42. Robyn says:

    Just prefect. I’m sharing this.

  43. Cassie says:

    Awesome. I laughed so hard.

  44. Savvy Sally says:

    Loved it! Nice comic sketch that happens to be truthful. Great timing by the three of you. Thanks for the laughs!

  45. Leena says:

    Awesome. So true and funny. The T-shirt concept was cool!
    Plus Id love to learn that whack in the end. Deft, sharp and en pointe. Loved Annakes expression and poise.

  46. Amy says:

    Thanks Matt. Great video. Only thing I didn’t like is that you’re pretty much saying any guy who asks “why are you single?” is insecure and not worth my time. If this is true, then it is pretty disheartening. Maybe this is something I need to hear, but I guess I’m not ready to accept it yet. Anyway thanks for the weekly videos.

  47. Nat says:

    Omg! Love it! I have to watch this one again. Just too funny and so true! Love the #manslator shirt..

  48. Niomi says:

    Awesome production on this one and excellent acting by everyone in it! So funny! Keep it up!

  49. Nicky Lutsky says:

    Loved it!!

  50. sandra says:

    I get a lot of these two. almost everyone of them. how is a beautiful girl like you still single? I always felt it met ” your pretty and single, whats wrong with you, are you somehow broken’? and my best friend is a girl is that going to be an issue? my brain goes WTF? here’s a good one tells me he’s the best in bed there ever was, and follows later of stories of break ups cause the girls were cheating on him. what’s up with that one Matt? can you answer this one for me Matt ? we are both on a dating site, my page is long and they ask ” what are you looking for, and do you meet a lot of guys on here?

  51. Lisa Tetreault says:

    Spot on well done! It’s funny because I always felt in my gut that was were what they were truly stating.

  52. Erin remo says:

    I swear this is so true! Haha!love this….

  53. Emily says:

    Those hashtags on your shirt. Hilarious!

  54. Vie says:

    Great video. Made me laugh so watched it again. You have to so more bids like this with Anna Akana her expressions and language was so humorous. Brill!

  55. Nelly Pouth says:

    well thanks , I this is very helpful

  56. Cindy says:

    Well, that was funny. Video near of perfection! Loved it haha

  57. Vavavoom says:

    OK Matt… so here’s the thing… I think I might be #Hustle.
    It’s not that I remember me saying that at any point while dating per say… but… it’s sounds like something I say in general.. or would say… or something.And I think I might like to work on that, but I have no insight into what this means…
    A little help with this one?

    How do I work on it? What does it entail? … what…. I guess… the bottomline is: Questionmark [?] Now what?
    Can you help…?

  58. Kelly says:

    This was hilarious! Loved the T-shirts. I just want to take things slow. Yeah, right!

  59. Tasha Hughes says:

    Hysterical!! Loved it! We need to see MORE of these…very insightful. :)

  60. Pam says:

    I LOVE Anna Akana! Can you two do all of your videos together from now on? And great video- helpful and hilarious :)

  61. Gale says:

    Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!! This was the BEST video so far. And so many of them have been AWESOME, which means there are no words to describe how AWESOME this is. I’m watching it again as soon as I finish this post. Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

  62. Sharmini says:

    Would like to know more

  63. marce says:

    Wouldn’t it be great to have Matthew in your purse when you go on a date with someone? Perfect responses each time to weed out the losers.

  64. Julie MacKenzie says:

    That was so funny! LOL! I had to watch that part twice…the “cock block”…Felt sorry for the guy you hit in the package though…that had to hurt just a little! LOL! Made my morning…although I just about spit my coffee out at the computer screen…;) Have a great Sunday! I know mine started out with a bang! Thanks Matthew! Hugs! Thanks for that morning “belly laugh”! Looking forward to the next one! <3

  65. Kalee says:

    This may be one of my all time FAVORITE videos Matthew, and I have been following you from the beginning so I have seen all of them :)

    Also, I really needed this video, and I cracked up at the part where he says he doesn’t want anything serious. Then you say “I am going to remind you of this three months from now.” I laughed, except it is so true because I was dating a guy for a year and a half and a month ago he brought up to me how he said at the very beginning he didn’t want anything serious. so then I said so what in the world have we been doing for the last YEAR AND A HALF?! Needless to say, He is out of my life, and this video is helping me even more to move on.

    Thanks as always Matthew for making me laugh, for the advice, and for helping me get rid of the wrong guys to find the right one.

  66. Angela says:

    Matt this is SO right on. I even sent it to my guy friends who are dating now. They all loved it too. I’ve particularly received the “you’re intimidating” line more than once, and I always felt that’s what it meant but thanks for verifying my hunch. ;) Hilarious!

  67. Carrie says:

    This was by far my most favorite video EVER!!! I am still laughing!!!

  68. Julia says:

    My favorite so far. Too bad it’s SO ACCURATE!

  69. Carla says:

    Manslation, please?

    When a man says “women have never really been a priority for me” “I’m not looking for anything serious, right now” and then follows that with “when we get our kids together to meet/when you meet my dad ” in the same bloody breath!

    That’s one that always confused me. Sorry. It just seems totally illogical to follow a statement that feels like I’m basically nothing but a booty call with something that seems more committed.

    • Vavavoom says:

      he’s trying to keep you around for sex by making it seem like he sees a future with you…
      in other words this is done in the effort to try to keep .. well.. p*ssy around.

      when you find out that he isn’t serious he can back out/wash he’s hands off of responsibility by saying he told you then that women wasnøt something he was searching for…

      I think that’s whats going on.. something like that. But I’m not the dating coach.. ;) So maybe matt can clear it up-….

      • Carla says:

        Well if that’s what it was, it backfired on him lol

        He never got any from me. I liked him in a lot of ways but he was too… contradictory. Life moved on. I just hadn’t encountered anyone else who was so blatantly all over the place and wondered what it was all about.

  70. Tricia says:

    I love the video! It’s funny, but true. I’m pretty sure the last guy I dated used all of these statements at some point in the first few weeks. Wow! I wish I would have seen this before I dated him!

  71. Marina says:

    That video was #Fantastic, #Funny, #Relevant, #Right On, #Informative!!!!
    Soooooooooo loved it!!!! Congrats all around to the writers, actors, creative and set. Really, really #Awesome!!

    P.S. #Honest Comments :)

  72. Amy says:

    I don’t know which was better- your t-shirts or Anna’s reactions to the cold hard truths of the male psyche?! Hilarious and informative!

  73. Loren says:

    This was AMAZING Haha. I’ve literally heard every single one of these so many times and mostly from guys on tinder and bumble. This is definitely a video I’ll need to watch again and again lol

  74. Deanna Shank says:

    This is excellent! So helpful and funny!

  75. Petra says:

    Thank you, Master!

  76. Marie says:

    Great video. I’ve heard these remarks quite often…. Now I understand. Thanks

  77. Karen says:

    Such a good video Matt :) (again!).
    I’ve heard so many of those lines. A lot!! Especially the ‘why are your single’/’wow, you’re a little intimidating’ and ‘there must be a ton of guys after you…’ lines as well as the classic ‘outdated monogamy’ one. Was starting to think I was some kind of strange mutant lady freak! Makes me realise it’s probably more a case of ‘it’s not me, it’s them’ :)

  78. Faizah says:

    I get those questions a lot!.. especially the “why are you still single?”. I find it annoying, even if it’s meant to be a “compliment”.

  79. Sofi says:

    Brilliant and so true. I’ve got to write theses down on flash cards. I’ve also seen some of Anna’s vids on line. Love the one about asking a guy out

  80. Taryn says:

    Loved this! Best clip I’ve seen.

  81. Jennifer says:

    Amazing! Love it!

  82. Tara says:

    This video was fantastic! I loved it. Any chance you could do a follow-up where you explain how to handle responding to statements like these?

  83. Holly Clark says:

    hands down. best ever video. you guys are one of a kind! gonna watch again I laughed so much!

  84. Janet says:

    Hilarious — great job!

  85. Bernadette says:

    Love it!

  86. N-J says:

    Hahaa!! Absolute gem of a video! xx Will probably watch it again & again and show it to about 6 of my friends :-) Especially the cock block at the end…kinda hoping that was real..?! Poor fella x

  87. Barbara says:

    So basically. More guy like you. More he will be insecure….and more you have to “help “him? to do not misinterpret what he sais…and they say women are compliated…

  88. Janning says:

    Killer dress, Anna! Where can I get one?

    (Your #shirts were cool too, Matthew.)

  89. Tina says:

    Hilarious. Just wish to know what it means when the guy is all over you,always brings out how attractive you are and how much he is interested in you…. Then he tells you he will call you tomorrow and never does!

  90. Rebecca says:

    Thank you so much.I always have had these exact same questions, and I didnt really know how to respond.They are really helpful. they come very handy.my goodness and thank you.Rebecca.

  91. Vicky says:

    Loved it so much! Never imagined two of my favorite youtubers would hit it off such well together!

  92. sameera says:

    This is my favourite video ever
    I Love it
