when would you use this sentence? because i do not get the english sentence as well.
If a guy baked me a peanut butter cake for my birthday without knowing I was allergic to peanut butter, I would say, "he means well." His intentions were good, but the resulting cake would end up killing me if I ate it.
ah thanks, that is what i thougt. In German you would add an "it", so i was not sure. :)
You can also say "Han mener det godt", which I think may be more common.
ok thanks, good to know :)
One can also say,"He means well" without there needing to be a dramatic other story behind it!
I'm sure he does.
