Best said from a car that's already started and in gear....with the girl/woman not in said car.

I've definitely said that one before. It didn't go over too well.

When she asks me if I think she is pretty, I always answer honestly.
Questions about who is prettier another woman vs my gf is a topic I won't answer.

I cannot imagine saying something like that unless the intention was to totally piss them off.

I've never said any of those things to Mr. East Hill, and he's never said any of those things to me.

Works out really well .

Heh. My wife once said, "I never want to be like my mother. If I'm ever acting like her, please tell me, and I'll stop."

That was when I was younger and much dumber. I only told her that once...

To this list, I would add one of the biggest bombs I ever dropped. To a chick I'd just met:

Why are you wearing bug spray?

It was an honest question -- she smelled like Cutters. Turns out it was some expensive perfume and I could see the hate in her eyes and the date went downhill from there.

Also, never guess ages or weights regardless of the pressure. It is a trap. Guess too low and you are patronizing. Guess too high and you are dead meat. Guess correctly and they are depressed.

In addition to the above suggestion on guessing age and weight, I would add measurements to that as well.

This issue reminds my of a rather obscure Science fiction story (Well really not, but since it was written by Heinlein it must be SF). It was "Cliff and the Calories". The part relevent here is that Cliff is a high school guy with a Rubinesque girlfriend, just the way he likes them. One day she points to another girl (also chunky) and asks what he thinks of her. He says she looks OK, nothing special. By the time things are over Cliffs GF almost makes the rabbit food mistake. Cliff actually thought the other girl was the second hottest girl at school, but wasn't cleaver enough to say that, instead he said she was OK to avoid making the GF any reason to doubt that it was she he was interested in.

Screwed with almost any answer. (figuratively, literally probably the opposite).

Nothing wrong with cute. Any complement from a woman, I'm hoarding.

I would like to add an addendum to the "What did you do to your hair?"

Never in any circumstance ask a woman "Are you having a bad hair day?"
Its certain death.

ok...but is a compliment when they say..."Awww, you're so sweet!"
I have generally found this to mean...I want to be a friend, but nothing more.

You were right- I've smelled that stuff and it REEKS!!!!!! >
There was a field marketing rep where I used to work who would practically bathe in that stuff.
I could smell her before I'd see her every time she'd come to the office. I was grateful she was
mostly in the field.

Ah, but you have to remember that sometimes "more" comes after being friends. I once dated a woman who only wanted to be friends. So we did. But we definitely had more activities that was meant for "special" friends.

Also "Did you take your medication" is not a smart thing to say when she is yelling at you.

I don't know but I find that the easiest way for a woman to get rid of a man is to say the following..."I love you and want to have your babies"! Hell it scares men off faster than you can say Tom Robinson.....

Try it ladies when you want to break up. Guaranteed to frighten single guys everywhere!
