If your girlfriend asks if she looks fat....

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by string_dean, Jul 28, 2003.


  1. If your wife, girlfriend, or significant other asks if they look fat in a particular outfit, what is the best comeback? I made the mistake of answering YES to that question. I was just being honest, but it happened right after getting the thumbs up to buy some new bass gear.
    Any suggestions as to how to answer this question? How do I get out of this?
    In the doghouse,
    Dean :bawl:

    I think you should stick with the truth. You don't have to be mean about it, but some articles of clothing do make people look fat. Ask your lady if she would rather just wear something that may not look good on her? She shouldn't get mad. If you are being honest, you are doing her a favor.

    On the other hand, don't be calling her a fat cow or something like that. There is such a thing as diplomacy.

    "Does this make me look fat?"

    "Well, lets see. Yeah, I think so. Why don't you try that pink one you were wearing last week. That's lovely."

    or whatever...

    The correct answer is . . .

    "No, you don't look fat. Skinny women are always bitchy, have another hoho."

    Actually, I'd try to change the subject.

    Welcome to Talkbass. I'm not sure how to answer your question.

    The Miscellaneous forum is for topics which are music related, but do not fit into any of the other forums.

    I am moving this to our Off Topic forum, which is for topics not related to bass or music.

    Good luck with the girlfriend issue!

    There is no correct answer.

    You say yes and you know what happens, she kills you.

    You say no and you are accused of lying and still in trouble.

    You tell her ^ and she gets mad at you for trying to talk your way around it.

    You ignore it and simply acknoledge that you hate when girls ask that question and you are ok.

    Peace
    Nick

    On a serious note - I answer that question by comming straight out and saying "I'm not answering that question because no matter what I say here, you're about to let me have it with both barrels. If I say you look beautiful, you'll yell at me for lying. If I say you look fat, you'll yell at me for not lying".

    Three Magic Words: "You look fine."

    EDIT: Works well in many situations :D
     
  12. Once I was dated this girl, and in her previous relationship, her old boyfriend called her fat on more than one occasion, and she eventually became anorexic. While I dated her she was recovering from it, but since we've split I think shes going back to her old ways.

    When a 110 pound girl (if not less) keeps insisting she's fat, something is wrong :meh:



    Just make sure your girlfriend doesn't turn out like my ex.

    Ooooh, I just got a good one.



    "My love for you clouds my perception. You are always beautiful to me."

    Follow it up with a long puppy-eyed "I looovvveeeee yooooouuuuuu."

    Say that, and you're in like flint :cool:

    also known as "haha just kidding".


    Or, in a more cruel context of "Here, I want you to play with this cool action figure I am playing with. Sike!" And take it away as you say sike.
