Ladies, unless you’re just on an endless search for attention, when we say you look gorgeous and that you’re not fat, pause to consider the possibility that we actually mean it. We’re not maniacal weight-crazed oafs with portable scales in one hand and a laser pointer in the other. We say what we mean, mean what we say and, bottom line, we don’t always pay attention anyways. Just ask your boyfriend what shoes you were wearing yesterday—you’ll see what I mean. Photo © istock/Jack Wackerhaussen
