Your girlfriend has probably never heard that phrase before if she took offense from it. Tell her that you weren't trying to call her ugly and a lot of people say that to each other (Y'know because it rhymes).
you called her a gator?! oh man, may as well have just called her a crocodile
I understand your pain. From my limited experience she is probably just insecure and wants you to compliment her more often on her looks. You should tell her how beautiful she is more often... but that's just my two cents
Granted yours is the more likely explanation, but perhaps she'd never heard of the expression before? The chances of that would be especially high if English isn't her first language. I mean, alligators aren't exactly the cutest animal ever (though I do find them cool!)... imagine if your bf called you a type of animal you found ugly. Like "good bye cow" or "cockroach" or "sea lion." Even a reasonably secure person might take offense :P
