Today, I was texting a girl I like, explaining how she looks like an attractive celebrity. She responded with a picture of a very unattractive lady and asked if she looked like that. I told her if she had been caught in a burning building, then yes, that would look like her. It was of her mom. FML

Hey guys. First off, I am very happy to have had this published, but I would like to clarify some things and clear the misunderstandings! My friends mom is not actually a burn victim, she just wasn't attractive at all and didn't resemble her daughter either. We had been texting previously, and she was sending me pictures of celebrities and asking if she looked like that. She then sent that picture of her mom, who was honestly very unattractive. I thought I was being clever with the whole "caught in a burning building" joke, but it was just the wrong time to use it. Believe me when I say I have nothing against burn victims, as that's seriously a weird thing to hate on. After I found out I apologized and she accepted, so everything is fine now! Thanks for taking the time to read this, I just wanted you guys to not think I'm some weird shallow guy who hates burn victims and is only after girls for their looks.

Looks like your chances with her just went up in smoke

Hmmm. I would say that you deserved it because it is perceived as saying she's ugly and her mom is ugly! But if the girl can understand what he is saying, then i dunno

Either way you put it, it was quite rude OP. All you had to do was say "no, you're way more beautiful than that person." Feelings may have been spared.

This reminds me of that classical character test on first dates: Don't look at how your date treats you, look at how your date treats everyone else. Are they rude to the waiter/waitress, do they make mean comments about others, etc.
By being that insulting about a seemingly random person, the OP has shown that he's a dick.
He could've said something neutral, could've said something nice, instead he went with "looks like a burn victim". That's douchey.

#21 i wouldnt say the only reason people dont look like their mom is because theyre adopted. Someone may look like their dad? Or plenty of other reasons

I'd be offended if someone said that yes, I look like the picture of my mother. Not because my mother I don't think my mum's beautiful, she's gorgeous. But because she's 51 and I'm 23.

Always think first, don't always say yes.

10, yes, because that totally justifies insulting burn victims by calling them ugly and openly insulting a human being. Even if it hadn't been a picture of her mom, OP is a douche for that. It did do some good though, I'd say that girl dodged a bullet there.
