The following situation is familiar to most guys in relationships: You and your girlfriend (or wife) are preparing for a night out and, after she gets dressed, she asks, "Do I look fat in this?" The best answer? "No, of course you don't look fat." (That can be followed by "You're beautiful" or other flattering comments.) Other than ignoring her question entirely, this is the only way to come out of the situation unscathed; any other answers could be twisted into something we didn't mean and door slamming will likely ensue. The bottom line for guys is: She feels chunky and our mission is to put her fears to rest.
