Really. That’s how men respond to a question by women “Is something wrong?”. Women on the other hand, think there’s an underlying subliminal message in our response. But, men are straightforward so read into our words literally.
When the role is reversed, and if men asks “Is something wrong?”, and when women reply “Nothing”, it isn’t nothing. But as men we don’t have a clue what’s wrong because we take your response literally.
