Don't you just love that one? Very similar to the "If you really loved me, you would've....<insert should've, would've, could've here>."

Yep, that and loaded questions.....I have gotten the "does this make me (insert negative comment about body here)".....I hate this question....not so much because of hte politics of it, but that the asker is usually dissatisfied with either possible answer.

No: she gets mad thinking you are saying it just to be nice, when she wants honesty.....honestly I think she looks fine in whatever...keep in mind Al Borland has better fashion sense than I do....

Yes: I'm lucky to get out of it with a series of rapid slaps and 5 days of apologizing.

Yeah, that's a lose-lose situation they intentionally put you into for some sadistic reason. There are deeper more convoluted issues involved that are 2-3 layers removed. I've found the best response to the "Does this make me look fat?" question is, "Sweetie, I'll let you know when I want to go out with another hottie." That too is an equally innocent-sounding response with woven-in implications several layers deep...

the deepest answer to does this make me look fat? is to bring it right back to her for her to make her own judgement.
does that make me look fat really much implies that there is a low self esteem and always looks for reassurance from you.
Being well with yourself comes from within, regardless of what your partner thinks. You either feel good and carry yourself as if you think you look good or you can always wait for approvals by asking over and over, "how do i look?" the problem is deeper then your answer. there is no right answer till SHE says "Darn! I feel good and look good!!!!!!!!!!! "

Exactly. That's why indirectly implied (meta-messaging) in my answer is:

1. Yes, you look hot.
2. You're not gonna get any emotional propping-up from me for your emotional insecurities.
3. I'm not gonna cheat on you, so don't worry about it.
4. .... that is until a BBD comes along...

Most people think that it's the words out of your mouth that chics want to hear. And that's why guys get stuck in picking the right words, but you end up in lose-lose if you think of it as a YES/NO answer. However, I'd rather address the underlying emotions of that question. When chics get that answer from me, it's almost like a slap in the face of sorts because they're expecting and are used to guys groveling and kissing their feet. My response's mildly flattering and comforting, yet is also firm and challenging... all in a single sentence.


As for insecurities, life is not static, people are dynamic and are always changing. Some people chose to change for the better, others for the worse, most chose to change into the same characters they're used to from their past. The power of choice comes from within.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the fact that maybe the woman has perfectly fine self esteem and maybe is just seeking approval of her mate by asking him what he thinks of her attire. Woman are weird like that, they need to be told they look beautiful, and they want it. Sometimes it has nothing to do with self esteem. They know they are the HBIC, they just want you to tell them it's true.
