What Are You Supposed To Say When A Girl Asks You If She’s Pretty?

Hey gentleman, have you ever been asked by a girl/woman if you think they are pretty or if they have gotten less pretty or fat or something?

If you have, and you were foolish enough to answer, then you know there is no right answer. You will always come out a horrible person after this question.

I’m not talking about girls asking you if you think they’re pretty in a flirtatious way, and from someone interested in dating you. I’m talking about friends of yours who just ask for their own self worth or however you want to phrase it.

In high school, I learned the consequences of answering these questions. I remember a time one of my best friend’s girlfriend, who I was close friends with, asked me if I thought she was pretty, (or some other version of attractive) and I, being a naturally honest person, said that yes she was. I probably would have said yes as to not hurt her feelings, but the fact was she was indeed a beautiful girl, so I said so.

And her response was that I was a creep and that she was my friends girlfriend and I shouldn’t be looking at her like that.

Okay…my bad…?????

This same girl, a few months later, asked how I thought she looked in an outfit she had worn that day. And I stupidly told her she looked hot, thinking that’s what she wanted to hear, and because frankly, she looked hot in everything. Also, I was half joking, because as I said, we were close friends, and I thought I could get away with saying this.

The result was her backing away from me, a disgusted look on her face and told me I’m not supposed to say that and that she was going to tell her boyfriend…

Okay, sorry…

Another girl asked me later on if I found her attractive. She wasn’t unattractive, but nothing head turning, and learning that saying yes is a bad idea, I said “no.” I got yelled at and I don’t think I ever talked to that person again.

Sheesh…

Another time, my sophomore year, I was in a class with my friends girlfriend, the same one who I talked about first in this post. She introduced me to a friend of hers, female, and the three of us became good friends throughout the year.

I was in between girlfriends and just had enough of women for the time being. These two were hounding on me on who I thought was hot and who I wanted to go out with, and the fact was, I didn’t want to date anyone and didn’t care who was hot or not, and that’s exactly what I told them. And of course, they both asked if I thought either of them was hot. Both of these girls were attractive, like 8/10’s, but I just shrugged my shoulders and said I didn’t care.

Well, they both got mad at me for not telling them I thought they were hot. They bickered with each other and argued with me, but I just sat there, not saying anything and only half listening. Eventually, they reconciled by saying, “Well at least he didn’t say we were ugly,” and everything was fine after that.

Effing shoot me…

Years later, when I was in my early 20’s I think, a girl I had worked with for years was sitting alone in the break room when I walked in for my lunch. We were friends, but had sort of drifted apart at this point.

Now, first a tad of background. This woman used to be absolutely gorgeous, a 10/10 if you will. We were very flirtatious when we were younger, but she always would shut me down, saying I was too young for her (she is four years older), but then a week later it would start all over again.

Eventually, as she moved into her mid 20’s, she let herself go and gained a lot of weight and just looked a mess usually. So that day, when I walked into the break room, she asked me if I thought she had gotten as fat as this other girl who worked there, who was not attractive at all.

Her exact words were along the lines of “I know I’ve gotten fat, but I don’t think I’m that fat, do you?”

I looked at her for a second and said, “I wouldn’t know anything about that and I’m not dumb enough to answer that question.”

I had wised up, you see? Or so I thought…

She got mad at me for not answering the question. She insisted that I tell her the truth, but I refused. She asked me some more questions about her and the other girl. I can’t remember what exactly, but it was something along the lines of, “well who is better looking,” and “who has the better…” I did not answer any of these questions. We hadn’t flirted in years at this point, so maybe she was trying to bring up something as to why that wasn’t so anymore, despite her having a boyfriend and I think I was engaged at the time, so duh…why would we be flirting?

Anyway, I didn’t answer any of her questions, and went to have my lunch elsewhere. She got mad, and I think that may have been the last or one of the last times I ever talked to her.

WTF!?!?!?!?

There is no winning with women! What are you supposed to do? What are you supposed to say? It’s ridiculous. This is a battle you will not win.

Does anyone else have similar experiences out there? Or ladies, what do you truly want to hear?

 

 

Robin Hood (2018) How Is This Considered A Bad Movie?

The wife and I just watched this movie, which is one I’ve been dying to see ever since I saw a trailer for it last year. But it was only in theaters for a few weeks and we missed it. Turns out, it’s short ride in theaters was because it bombed in the box office. This alone confuses me. If it’s pulled from theaters, how’s it going to ever make money?

Anyway, I bought the bluray, and it turned out to be better than I could have hoped for! They even left it open for a sequel, but because it lost so much money, that got canned, which is super upsetting, because we were extremely excited for one.

But this movie just further imprints upon me how distant my views for all things media are compared to the rest of the larger world.

Movie critics gave this a next to zero score, and regular viewers didn’t give it much more.

I personally would give it a 9.5/10. But then, I’m just looking to be entertained, I don’t expect everything that 90% of the rest of the world is hoping/looking for.

I don’t care about reviews or what other people think…at all. But I’m tired of being shafted out of sequels because of box office numbers and bad critiques and all that. Terrible movies that do great in theaters are good movies and vice versa. Yes, I am aware we live in a business world and making money is truly all that matters, but come on!

Going back to Robin Hood, I just can’t imagine how anyone would watch this and come out saying, “Man, that sucked!” unless you don’t like action movies at all.

Which speaking of, the action is top notch. It has unique/incredibly awesome action scenes, doing some crazy stuff with bows and arrows that is just super fun to watch.

The style of the movie is pretty interesting as well. They made the scenery, costumes, attitudes, weaponry, personalities, and dialogue with the typical stuff you would expect from a time period for Robin Hood, but combined it with a lot of styles and workings from today, resulting in a truly fascinating world.

And on top of that, the characters are all done in the same fashion in a way. You have all the classic Robin Hood characters, tweaked just enough to be both familiar and fresh. And they are a lot of fun to watch, especially since the acting is so good from literally every actor/actress.

The story gets the same treatment. It is actually an origin movie of how he becomes Robin Hood, which to my knowledge is a new one. And in a world filled with origin movies (I’m talking about you, Marvel) this one is by far the best. Yes, it’s not super hero related, but the premise is the same. And most of Marvels origin movies are crap to okay at best. I know they are not really comparable movies on a lot of levels, but as for action movies, Robin Hood blows away most in it’s genre.

So I think Robin Hood is one of the best movies ever made to be honest, and my wife thinks it might be her favorite movie of all time.

So I’m just really curious, what the heck do people look for in movies that this gem would be considered bad?

Side note: Apparently there is a King Arthur movie similar to this that got just as bad reviews. I very much want to check out this movie as well!
