Before I continue, I want to put a disclaimer that this is my personal point of view and my personal experience with my girlfriend and I do not intend to offend any woman.
How many times have you been asked to answer the question: AM I FAT? Me? I think many times.
I believe this is the toughest question to answer especially if the one asking is your girlfriend. How am I suppose to answer it? Shall I answer it honestly or what? Is she expecting a NO answer or what? Until now, I still do not know what is the best response because whichever answer I give Newton's 3rd law applies: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction...and sometimes the reaction is too much.
I recalled the very first time I was asked to answer the question AM I FAT. At first, I looked at her eyes, then to her body back to her eyes and even I did not utter any single word, she just turned her back, started to act weird, and finally became moody the whole day. To think that I did not even respond yet.
The second time I was asked, I tried to reply swiftly. "AM I FAT?", she asked. I smiled and replied, "Do not worry, Love, I don't like skinny woman." She once again turned her back, started to act weird, and became moody the whole day. What did I do wrong this time? I was seriously clueless and confused.
The third time, I tried to be more careful. "AM I FAT?", she asked. I smiled and replied, "It's okay, Love. I still love you!." She once again turned her back, started to act weird, and became moody the whole day. I was left hanging and petrified.
From then on, I feel like I developed an answering-am-I-fat-question phobia. I feel like these 3-word question has sharp blade which can cut my flesh deeply.
AM I FAT? It will be safer and peaceful to just reply NO, I think.
