LOL at you for being honest, rather than telling her what she wanted to hear. Why do you think she brought it home? Because she's interested in your opinion, or because she likes it and wants you to tell her she made a good choice.

ok am laughing!!!!!!!!!!i do that!!!i try boots on and if i dont get a "wow they are hot!!!!i love em" response i storm out and ignore him for the rest of the day...slamming dinner down etc.....but even worse is the grunt "theyre ok" response.....wtf does that mean...you dont llike them do you??they make me look like i have fat calfves dont they!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol
men are not even on this planet!

you do know your now going to have to offer to go the shops with her ,and help her get something...and do the whole "OMFG THATS THE ONE!!!YOU LOOK MEGA HOT IT THAT!!BUY IT...OH AND GET A BAG TO MATCH" ...BUT DONT OVERACT OR YOU WILL GET ACCUSED OF TAKING THE ****!!!!!!!!!!!then you will be back where you are now(being not talked to )

oh DO NOT DO NOT say "you look good in anything "to her....that translates as "i dont know what you have in your wardrobe,just sling sommit on"

Many people would love to be in this situation lol

it reminds me of only fools and horses: why ask????

its so bloody annoying you are in a no win situation best thing to do is to say nothing switch on sky sports and pretend you didn't hear her asking :-D

This ladies, is why you have girl-friends. Go ask them. They'll tell you what you want to hear, and not get the silent treatment when you change your mind back.

Since it's a no-win situation go for humour, tell her it makes her bum look big, but at least it detracts from her face.......Then learn to cook....

:roll: Sooooo Dont ask a bloke for his opinion then! Lol. Its not being thick... its being honest.

I have said loads of times - 'wear the little black number' fell on deaf ears!! So why ask? Not us who are going to have to wear it.

Time for a confession ................. I love to get the Dyson out vac the house and don't get me started on dusting.:oops:

i find outfits look completely different when u r done up,i have tried things on b4 and they have looked crap but when im ready with hair done heels and make up on etc the outfit looks alot nicer
my partner always tells me the truth and i prefer it that way

she asked you if you liked it NOT to hear your opinion.. just to hear a compliment.

Marry Me? (I'll just have to get a divorce first)

I also ask the question to hubbie about clothing, even though he's always said he hasn't got a clue about what colours or styles suit him or anyone else (and doesn't care), but over the 13 years he's learnt to have an opinion. if he doesn't like the way something looks on me and I've asked his opinion I'm not in a mood with him. I just take said item back to shop. At the end of the day if I like the way something looks on me but he doesn't then it will put me off wearing it.

Don't forget when you say you don't like an outfit that your wife is wearing to back it up with what puts you off it. Its always a good idea to have some compliments about her figure to pull out the bag to soften the blow.

frigin hate it :lol: if i dont like it i just say i do to avoid argument but then i have to see her wearing the thing :lol:
