    "Regarded with particular affection and admiration." That would be the dictionary definition.

    Seems like women like to say someone is special or they want to feel special to a guy. But two women may say they only sleep with men that are special to them. One may have had 50 partners and the other only has had 5. So does special mean something different to each of them?

    It seems like it's one of these words that has an almost magical meaning to women, but it means different things to different people.

    What does the word special mean to you?

    For me having someone feel special enough that i want to sleep with them means i trust them 100%. It means i know he doesn't think of me as some stupid bimbo or a slut he only wants s fuck from. Someone i know when i wake up he is still going to be there with a smile, hug and a kiss

    I am too conditioned by SNL's "church lady"; whenever she wanted to demean what you said, she would loudly pronounce, "Well, isn't that special?".

    My girlfriend calls me special when I say something intentionally stupid or absurd.

    I have been called "special boy" a lot. Which, judging by the tone and facial expression that goes with the tone, means I have special needs. :redface:

    The sentiment that I like and feel is more appropriate is:

    Well, in the cult of mormonism it is very common to hear "Sister Johnson has such a sweet spirit. She's special." It's overkill used to disguise a clique in the local ward's intense distaste for "Sister Johnson" because compared to the rest of the lock-Stepford women she probably reads real books, instead of canned Deseret Book porridge, and therefore is regarded as a iconoclast. Sad, but 'tis true. Consider the following: "Sister Smith, a sweet and dear spirit, has a "special" recipe for funeral potatoes." Translation: Don't let her volunteer to bring food to a church gathering. Her funeral potatoes are deadly (probably because she uses OreIda shoestring potatoes and eschews Western Family Grocery Store ersatz renditions of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup. Everyone with a true testimony knows that Campbell's soups and pre-shredded potatoes are against God's law because they are so frivolously expensive. And "Shhhhhh!", she probably throws in a dash of garlic salt, too.

    Note: The same can be said of Hutterites, Lutherans, Methodists, and Southern Baptists who live in Texas and have the temerity to read Sunset Magazine. But I think mormons do it best.

    What makes someone special is a matter of opinion. You knew this so I don't know why you're asking if this is true. >_o'

    It means she's probably about to announce she's dumping me for someone else.

    OMG that's too funny (ex LDS here) but the worst food I've ever had was at a mormon funeral. To this day I very much dislike green bean caserole of any kind.
