May you please elaborate on how the hell this is a problem? I prefer the taste of diet to regular.
I also prefer diet. Both for the taste and because 32 ounces of legit sugar water would kill my sensitive stomach. But the obvious insinuation is that her boyfriend is subtly calling her fat and telling her she needs to go on a diet. That's pretty rude by itself. But the wording OP used also sounds like she was only ordering a drink and skipping the food. So it's especially messed up if her boyfriend was implying, "I know you're already skipping a meal, but really you should be skipping EVERYTHING..."
Agreed. I've been asked many times to specify whether I want diet or regular, and I'm what people call "too skinny," so most people ask it without any malicious intent. I'm guessing though that OP has some big weight issues which her bf would probably be aware of, so either her bf made a small careless mistake (and OP should try not to take it personally), or her bf said it in a rude insinuative way (in which case, FHL).
99% of the time that I ask for a Coke I get 'diet?' as a reply. I do prefer full fat. But lots of people don't. Don't be offended, OP :)
