to be, or not to be...flattered

it's the first night i spent with this guy i'm seeing/sleeping with/whatever.

he says: "your body is amazing! you're like a grecian goddess. like the venus de milo !"

i think: yes, keep going...

"you have these gorgeous breasts"

...i know, i know

"and this tiny waist"

...oh, why thank you

"and these big hips!"

say what!?!

so in my head, this conversation comes to a screeching halt. and he went on and on about my tiny waist and my big hips. and he loved them. and all i could think was, "stop saying i have big hips! it is not making me happy!"

to be fair, i'm no stick. i'm more than fairly curvaceous. i float between a size four and a size six so i ain't no waif...but to say i have big hips? even if it's true, that is not the kind of thing a girl wants to hear! especially, ESPECIALLY when she's taking a guy home and getting naked in front of him for the first time.


but later he exclaimed, "oh my god, you're like a pornstar!"

that redeemed him. he's off my blacklist.

Yeah, that was totally meant as a compliment.

Just a groin-grabbingly poor choice of words.

I don't see what the problem is. I'd think the "like a pornstar" thing would be more likely to be offensive. Shows what I know.

This is why I'm glad I'm already married off.

It's not the brightest thing to say, but all of that was obviously complimentary.

At least he didn't say "Oh, I love your ginormous ass!" That would make for justifiable homicide, I think.

Girls, girls, girls... every guy is into different things. If he loves your ... giant ear lobes, why would you get angry at him.

Haha, jeez, a guy likes you for looking like you, and you would rather he like you for looking like a pornstar!

Guys can't win. It's the reason we try to never open our mouths. :)

lol.. the venus de milo... what - have your arms fallen off? Besides, the venus de milo does not sport the melons you do, you could open a fruit market. Love your work.

A size 4 - 6 would slip through the grate covering a storm water drain.. must be a difference between aussie and yankie sizes.

"but later he exclaimed, "oh my god, you're like a pornstar!" "

Some blokes have all the luck!! ;)

Seriously want to know what you did to generate the "pornstar" comment.

as a girl that floats between sizes 10 and 12, big hips is just fact. So...I'm not all that angry for you. Plus, I already know how gorgeous you are and it's a shame some people get it wrong. :-)

What's the British equivalent of an American size 4 or 6? That sounds tiny!?!

i think girls with no hips look misshapen. nature put them there to attract guys, you know, as a signal of good childbearing and whatnot. but i'm pretty sure that his blood supply was being used to fuel this other brain when he said it.
