Not sure if serious.

Tell her she is beautiful the way she is and she will say you are a liar and she hates you.

Tell her she is fat and that is a route you don't want to go and shame on you for saying that.

Tell her that she should work out if she feels insecure and she will cry "I'm fat" among other things. At least you didn't say it. Console her by saying you'll work out with her.

Perhaps there's a better avenue for advice? This is a roleplay forum for SC2...

I've found this to be the best solution. Even though she will say that you are a liar and that she hates you, on the inside she will feel that much more secure and enjoy hanging around you more.

Agreed, never, ever say this. Don't lie though. If she IS fat, and she calls herself fat, dodge the question. It takes skill, but it works for instance:

"I wish I was athletic like my friends."

"You don't have to be athletic to be beautiful."

Is this true? Yes. Did you say she was fat? No. Could she be fat? Possibly. This is a very effective way to not lie, not offend her, and have her feel that much better about herself rather then blatently saying, "Hell yeah, wait, let me speak your language, COWS GO MMOOO!!"

Unless... You don't want to end up working out with her. If it's your wife, girlfriend, or someone you're interested in, this is what I would do personally.

He has a point here... SC2 RPers tend not to be too good with the ladies or they would just go GET A LIFE!!

On the contrary, our little community is probably better then asking a stranger who doesn't care, or the internet when they could be just trying to screw up your life for the heck of it.

I am insulted. And Kroger would be too. We're both married to highly attractive women.

Attractive is an opinion. Besides, you would never say your wife was extremely unattractive even if she was.

That was directed to the majority of SC RPers, not married people anyways.

This is true, which is why your only hope is to ride the wave by telling her that if she wants to look like them, then she should go out and exercise.

Personal experiences on this matter:

If you tell her she is not fat: "Liar you just say that to make me feel better".

If you tell her she is fat: she'll say "I know" or something like that and she'll go off saying things about her being fat, look down and try to grab on to as much fat as possible even though there is almost none to prove her point.

If you don't answer or say you don't know: she'll think you think she is fat.

Best answer: smile and tell her she looks good either way. She will either say thank you or any of the answers above.

I happen to be a female, and I'd say...

Yeah. i'd go with what Riki said, xD best thing for any senario concerning anything relative to the word "weight" in my opinion.

Or you can science it to death.

Doctors have this nice chart that tells you if you are overweight or underweight for your gender, age, and height. Instant answer.

In the neutral responses: "It compliments you nicely."

All you have to do is say I find you attractive just the way you are.

Thats what I did with this girl more recently, she gave me the look like REALLY?

So I said, If I didn't find you attractive then I wouldn't be here with you now would I?

She smiled and said thanks we hugged then went to the movies, what ever you say to her though

SAY IT WITH CONFIDENCE! If you say it like your trying to convince yourself that you mean what your saying she will not believe you and call you a liar, If you sound confident like hey this is the way it is period, she will be inclined to believe you and trust your judgement.

Comes down to the whole she needs a MAN and not a boy.

Dump her and get a girl that's athletic and skinny.

Or joke about her being fat. Chicks dig humor!
