Lately men have said something to me, and then my brain went somewhere else completely. So I thought I'd share.
'You should model!'
That's sweet...he thinks I'm pretty. If he knew how much makeup, lighting, and airbrushing went into how those girls look! Oh! That means he things I'm 'model' pretty in the real world. Well that's a super compliment. Wait no....I can't model. In model standards my perfectly acceptable size 4/6 frame is practically obese. Also I'm ancient. I'm 28. That's like. An octogenarian in model years. Ick. Why couldn't he just say I'm pretty. Not cute though. I freaking hate 'cute'.
'You look great/amazing/awesome/nice today!'
Oh wow. That's so sweet. He noticed I put in some extra effort today. Wait. He said I look nice TODAY. What do I look like every other day.
*For fellas and ladies, I have learned it is better to compliment something specific because I am not the only crazy pants out there. I like what you did with your hair today, I like those shoes, did you do something different with your makeup, I love that lipstick ect.*
'I'm not a mind reader!'
No, no you aren't. You are however an IDIOT, because I specifically told you my thoughts on this issue. You either chose to ignore them, or your brain double as a sieve. Neither option looks good for you.
This is by far the absolute worst thing you can say to me or any woman while in the midst of a discussion. If I have laid out my argument with points and counter points and taken time to explain myself and my stance and you come back with 'ok', I'm literally killing you 7 different ways in my mind.
