Yeah, he probably had this awesomely romantic night planned and psyched himself up ready to asked the big question when you shattered his plans

37, I agree with you patially. Unless it happened to cost a lot of money. If he had some "high end" pricey night planned then I can't blame the guy for freaking out. I had close tothe same senario happen to me three years ago and I'm not going to lie, its a sh!ty feeling when someone you plan on proposing to doesn't want to do anything and everyrhing you planned is non-refundable.

34- Thank you! My friend toured me a factory where they made and export theses masks. I bought one for ~ 50 cents :-) 35- Interesting point. I guess guys see things a little differently. I'm a little chubby and my gf is a perfect figure. She loves me a lot so I'm not worried about myself. The moment she would say to lose weight that's where I'll start fixing myself - not that I still don't want to but it's currently on lower priority than other things.

'today, I wanted to propose to my girlfriend over a romantic lunch but she argued with me saying she was having a fat day. I guess this means the wedding is off. FML.

34, I disagree. The childish part of this is when she was willing to FIGHT about it because for one day she felt fat. Imagine how he felt: he had a night prepared to propose (that may have been non-refundable) and when he tried to get her to go out with him anyways, she started fighting with him about it because she felt a little insecure. And if she's only having a fat "day" then she's probably not heavy enough to justify it. (Fat people don't have fat days) I don't blame him for thro

So basically the lesson we learned here today is that nobody actually likes fat people. Not even other fat people, and fat people don't like themselves.

117: It sounds like the OP is the insensitive and selfish one. The BF was prepared to put himself on the line for her, but she was too busy sulking and feeling sorry for herself to even give him the time of day.

Hindsight is 20:20, people. It's easy to say what she should have now that we know he was going to propose. The nature of a proposal is that it is a surprise, so, of course, she would have NO IDEA. Furthermore, Who's to say she hasn't had "fat days" before and he's been fine with it. A lot of girls have "fat days", either because they just feel fat or because they're bloated from having their period. She had no way of knowing that it wasn't just a normal day.

We could fight over who was more justified with hypotheticals all day if we really want. He's a couple for you. Maybe the BF spent the last 3 months getting everything fall into place to recreate their first date. Maybe on top of those 3 months he was also in the hole 2 grand making sure the restaurant had the same band, playing the same song, serving the same meal, at the same table, etc. Maybe this day was also very important to him, maybe OP doesn't realize that it was on THAT specific day sh

Maybe Op had her period? I know I have thoughts like that when i'm on mine, and most other girls probably do as well. But her poor boyfriend, he probably didn't even see that coming.

158: She was feeling insecure, but instead of doing something to take her mind off of it (i.e: going out with her bf, who loves her) she wanted to pout and fight with him about how fat she felt that day. Being insecure is forgivable, but based on this FML the OP was just being childish.

Wow OP you have obviously have an amazing boyfriend that likes you the way you are,.... I hope you made up for it in some way. Poor guy :

Reply

Everyone has those days where they feel shitty and don't want to go anywhere. The difference between us and this idiot is that we will reluctantly oblige if our partner insists they really want to go somewhere, not get into a full blown argument about it.

They both could have handled it a bit better, but OP was the one who needs a reality check. A personal example: I was supposed to start my "girl time" in a few days & I felt really bloated & like hammered sh!t, when my Husband said he wanted to take me out that day. I told him how I felt, but he said it was important to him. You know what I did? I took a diuretic for the bloating, grabbed a few pain pills & got ready to leave. I took a little extra time with my make up &

I'm sorry OP but you fucked up really bad.. I did the same thing to my GF with her surprise birthday (fancy restaurant, expensive gifts, I've even made a whole scenario with the restaurant staff and we've rehearsed it for about 2 weeks before the BD, believe me it wasn't cheap). So when she said she didn't want to go out because she "didn't feel like it", I freaked out and told her to dress the fuck up for a nice night out (she never suspected it was a surprise BD party. She still love

Maybe OP's boyfriend had a reservation for a really fancy restaurant that he couldn't reschedule very easily?

Well obviously he loved her enough not to care if he was going to propose. We all have fat days that's why they make fat jeans and stretchy clothes! YDI, Op.

106 - A "fat day" is just another term for a lazy day/insecurity day where a girl complains about the most minor shit that any good bf doesn't even think about when looking at their girl. My gf used to do it, but she knows I love the way she looks no matter what and she wouldn't blow off a date night just cause she might've felt like OP. It's not like she was sick or anything, as I'm sure if she was her bf wouldn't have been upset and spent the rest of the night taking care of her. Tru

157: Either take a Midol and get on with your life, or just say that you feel like you're gonna throw up. Why waste everybody's time with "Ugh I feel fat today..." self-pity bullshit?

Reply

157 - Just because that's how you say it to your bf, doesn't make it what everyone else says. Every girl I know, family, friends, people at work/school etc always say they're on their period, not something that doesn't make much sense in that context aside from a little bloating. Whenever I hear the phrase "I'm having a fat day", it's always referring to someone being lazy or groaning about themselves, as I'm sure most people can agree with me on that. Have I ever felt how a period fee

Reply

160, Because guys don't understand what it's like to have a period is the reason some girls give up on men? Wow, those must be some really pathetic girls...:)

It's amazing how most of these relationship FMLs could be solved by COMMUNICATION. Girls feel cruddy about themselves sometimes. When I'm on my period or just feel insecure, I put on some comfortable clothes, and I'm honest with my boyfriend about how I feel, and he always does his best that day/week to make me feel better, and I do my best so that he knows I appreciate that. I certainly don't take my insecurities/hormones out on him. People just don't get that a relationship is a partnership

232 - Exactly, if more people understood this then there'd be a lot less divorce or relationship troubles. It's always the simple things people can't seem to grasp.

#157, you and #160 are idiots. When I'm on my period, sure, it hurts, but I don't take it out on everybody and laze about. I get things done to take my mind off of it. If my boyfriend asked me to go out with him for the night, I wouldn't have let my stupid period get in the way. If I were in bad pain, I'd still suck it up and go. Being on your period doesn't give you the excuse to get so wrapped up in yourself that nobody else matters. You two piss me off, you make women seem so weak. It's a reg

They make you mad because they won't 'deal with it'? Girls have experiences with periods! Just because you can get through the day normally doesn't mean others can. And as for the 'take some pills', that doesn't work for everyone. Midol and medication like that doesn't help me or my mother. Sometimes there are days it's hard to get out of bed even. I agree you need to compromise, but even if she had given in and went out she would not have had a nice time. I understand why the boyfriend could be

166 - So, when I say I'm in a rush does that mean I'm talking about "RUSH"? Learn sarcasm and get a sense of humor, please. Thank you.

Stop having such a low self-esteem... You missed out on possibly a great proposal because of it. You apparently are worth it, even if you feel fat.

Reply

But since he proposed when shes feeling that way shows he loves her. And since she said no because of her "problem" then that shows she isn't worth it.

I hate girls who are dead set against what their boyfriends say. shut the f**k up and accept a compliment. if I was a guy I'd find it so annoying if my girlfriend constantly said "no I'm not pretty, stop saying I am when I'm not" so what if you're having a fat day? put on something that makes you feel good and go out! it never does any good staying in and wallowing in self pity! if you think you're fat do something about it to prevent future fat days! you missed out and a proposal beca

Djeepee, spouse is a synonym for husband or wife. you can't propose to your spouse as the person cannot be a spouse until marriage. standing by your incorrect comment all you want, it is still incorrect.

Reply

it doesn't do any good for the boyfriend to propose right then and there anyway. how romantic of a story is that,"johnny had a romantic dinner and balloon ride planned but I didn't want to go because I was having a 'fat'day so johnny proposed right then and there. isn't that romantic?"

Reply

26, The amount of effort and thought that went into that proposal would have been huge, and she just ruined it because she didn't feel like going anywhere. To a guy, this is a big deal. When it goes from a request to go out to a full on argument then she has crossed a line. Why would you let it get that far? It would sound pretty important to him that you both go out, so get off your fat ass and suck it up.

I wish I could thumbs this up more than once, really. I totally agree. I have never heard of a "fat day", and I hate how a lot of us girls are whiney about crap like that (myself NOT included), but he could've definitely rescheduled or come about the situation differently. Not his fault for being mad, but he didn't have to be, definitely not. Unless OP did something like this coincidently every time he was trying to pop the question....

Hopefully you guys can work it out. I mean, if he was going to propose to you, then he really does love you. So who cares if you feel fat next time. Your boyfriend finds you beautiful.

Reply

Yeah it's to bad OP missed this. Now there's no surprise. So hopefully they work it out and end up engaged and have a funny story to tell their grand kids!

To be honest, OP, if he loves you, he'll understand you were just having a fat day, and try again. But, on the other hand, you were being quite selfish and vain; after all, he loves you for who you are, not what you look like.
