    Arrow Not really.

    Hello,


    What is meant by 'not really'?


    and what is meant by 'really' as in 'I wasn't angry, really' -or 'I like them, really'


    Thanks a lot

    It acts as a way of admitting something- I may have had problems with them and arguments, but I like them really. It shows that appearances may be deceptive and I am giving what I feel inside.
