Today, my mother described what her ideal daughter-in-law should be like. Half-way through her description, fishing for some compliments, I told her that such a girl would be way above my league. She sighed and emphatically agreed. FML

Yeah YDI for fishing for compliments, if you want to hear those things just tell yourself. And save the embarrassment! Personally I don't believe anybody could be out of someone's league, either you're not compatible or you are, If not it doesn't mean the girl / man is better than you

I absolutely hate it when girls do that. Its annoying and I wish I had the guts to tell them they're right when they say they're ugly or something in that catagory.

39- It's annoying when females fish for compliments, but OP is a male, and he was fishing for compliments. It's annoying no matter which gender you belong to.

As well, some girls really believe that they are ugly and have very low self esteem. It's not always that they are fishing for compliments.

In addition to 49, there's a saying that goes along the lunes of, "Tell a girl she's beautiful every day and she'll never believe you. Tell her she's ugly once and she will remember it for the rest of her life"

From what I read, OP's mother was "fishing" for compliments, which in this situation meant trying to find the (complimental) words to describe her ideal daughter-in-law. So yeah, Lucy, you're right. Everyone misunderstood this FML. Any of scenario where OP was fishing for compliments would have been contradictory to his actual statement (being that she was actually out of his league) and wouldn't have made sense. Unless I missed something, then correct me.

Please, explain to me again how OP's mother was fishing for compliments as she was describing her ideal daughter-in-law because what you said makes no sense. It clearly states that OP was fishing for compliments. He stated that this "ideal" girl was out of his league in hopes of his mother striking his ego and telling him he could absolutely get a girl like that. I thought that was pretty clear...

57 - He said she would be out of his league trying to coax his mother into saying something like "Oh, honey. No girl is too good for my perfect little handsome man."

You and 52 are friggin' dense.

You just have to drive their massive ego into the ground.
"Oh my god, I'm so fat!"
"Awww don't worry babe, you'll lose it someday."
