    Talking Sentence Meanning ??

    I never intended things to turn out the way they did.

    I intend ? <-> somethings to be finished naturally?
    What does the sentence mean???

    Teachers, thanks!

    My intention was never that this state of affairs would result (but they did).
    OK, I stuffed up. I didn't mean to do that.
    Things turned out badly because of something I did. I didn't mean that to happen.
    The adverse outcome I caused was unintentional.
