Maybe, leaning towards no.

A term combining the best qualities of the terms "maybe" and "perhaps" into a single superior word.
Often used when planning something mischevious or pretending to be British.

Archaic word used in place of perhaps and maybe, it is the incorrect use of the real word "mayhap". Mayhap originated from the old use of the term "it may hap", hap being old happen in old English.
"Do you want to go with me?"

"Mayhaps, I haven't decided."

When no is too strong and maybe or perhaps is too weak, try on this noncommittal word on for size.
"Dad, can I get a new labtop?"

"In 23.2 years mayhaps."

Although recent etymology has added "-s" to this word, Mayhap is actually a 16th century term meaning perhaps or perchance. It is actually a derivative of the phrase "may happen" and not a portmanteau of "maybe" and "perhaps".
"I really enjoyed our date. Mayhap I will see you again?"

John has had a cold for nearly a week. Mayhap 'tis time to go to the doctor.

When you are sick of telling people maybe, and perhaps just doesnt cut it.

Wes, "Mayhaps"

An eloquent hybrid of "maybe" and "perhaps". It rolls off the tongue much more beautifully than its predecessors. It can sometimes imply a stern or egotistical way of playing hard to get or snubbing someone. Further it adds mystery to a situation.
Eg.

Boy: "Shall I see you again?"
Girl: *smirks* "Mayhaps."
