During the course of any relationship, most guys will have their girlfriends or wives greet them with that most dreaded question: “Does this make me look fat?” And it seems like absolutely anything you say is the wrong answer. When you can’t read your partner’s mind like she expects you to, you might end up exiled to the couch, denied sex or will otherwise become a victim of her bitchy passive-aggression. The ideal solution is to not offer a straight “yes” or “no” answer and kind of pussyfoot around the question itself. Below are 6 ways to avoid answering, “Does this make me look fat?”
“It flatters your figure.” This works even if your girlfriend really is fat and even if her outfit is very unflattering. How’s she going to argue with this logic? Try it and be amazed.
“I think you look sexy.” This one is probably closer to the truth than our other ideas; after all, would you still be with your girlfriend or wife if you didn’t find her sexy at least some of the time? Phrasing your response this way allows you to evade a direct reaction while letting her know you still find her attractive. It also doesn’t specifically address her clothing preferences either— just her.
