    Bloody well

    What is the meaning of this sentence? She bloody well.
    Is it mean to say that "She likes you"?

    Re: Bloody well

    That's not a sentence. "She bloody well better do it" is a sentence meaning "She better do it" with an added "bloody well", which is an impolite expression of emphasis.
    It has absolutely nothing to do with liking someone.

    Re: Bloody well

    ...unless the context makes it so:

    'Does she like me?'
    'Yes — she bloody well does!'
