Guest:hey guys.... can someone enlighten me wat is the meaning of false hopes.
take as an example that this girl tells this guy that she wun give him any false hopes bcoz this guy likes her and all but i guess that she doesnt like him...? yea.... so wat does she mean by false hopes?

Another scenario: a doctor telling a terminally ill patient that he or she will live...
