How many times has a friend handed you her phone and asked, “What do you think he means in this text message?” As women, we spend more time than we’d like trying to figure out what men are actually trying to say. That’s why Ali invited comedian Mike Falzone, author of Never Stop Shutting Up: A Book of Advice and Other Things You Didn't Ask For, to do some translating for us. For example, did you ever get one like this? "Hey, sorry I haven't been able to email you back, things have been really crazy at work." Mike decodes that as: "You're not interesting enough to keep up a text conversation with me." Watch the full episode for more tough love.Read More »
