Don't let you MIL get away with that though. TELL HER how rude and offensive she is or she will just keep it up. Tell her you don't want to hear about all the ex's that didn't cut it. Tell your husband also so he can set her straight. That's his job.

Hey, well nowadays with the magic of makeup you can look completely different in like 5 seconds. But still that was pretty insensitive and she needs to check herself before she wrecks herself

I think it's very rude. There's no need for her to put OP down like that. & for all we know, OP could be gorgeous in her own way. Looks aren't important, it's a good heart & a good personality that matters most at the end of the day.

From this FML it doesn't sound to me like the mother-in-law even said anything about looks, the OP just assumed it--then she assumes that she was the ugliest of all. Sounds to me like the OP is insecure about her looks and is thinking too much.

I agree with #89 ...the connotation of the mothers comment has been assumed, she didn't explicitly state that she thinks her daughter-in-law (to be) is ugly.. just that her son usually dated cheerleader types and maybe he would have ended up marrying one. There's nothing rude about stating a difference in personality/character.

Umm...not all cheerleaders are beautiful and neither are some models. What is more common between them is their need for a cheeseburger and lighting quick leg-spreading skills. Good for you for being smart, OP. When those cheerleaders' and models' vaginas and asses lose their tight hold on their men as they age, your intellect and wit will always be in tip top shape! Scheherazade, anyone?

And I bet you op is beautiful. Plus where do you think those cheerleaders are going to be when they're 40 and haven't gotten past college? McDonalds. Or Walmart. Oh and I like your name by the way :)

Besides that, you can't expect women to all look as good as cheerleaders and models (who are paid to look good, I might add). For all we know, she could be gorgeous, but because she's not a super skinny model or a cheerleader with triple D's, her mom acted like a bitch.

could be worse you could have someone with a pretty face, but ugly personality . looks fade and once they are gone all you are left with is personality . so the people that choose looks will never be happy .

good old mother in law , least you kinda got a compliment .

By  hotPinklipstick  |  24

Well OP you have one thing all his ex's don't, a ring on your finger and his last name. So ignore your mother in law and be happy that he's with you. Obviously he sees something in you he didn't in his ex's.

"Makes them stand out"? What's that supposed to mean? I'm sure a lot of girls are way smarter than they act, but guys never seem to show their interest in smart girls. Think of the quiet girl who sat away from the crowd in school reading books. Bet you don't even know who I'm talking about, eh?

Crazberry - The smart guys are the ones who notice the smart, shy girls rather than the ones who act dumb and dress like prostitutes just to get attention. I married one of those smart girls 10 years ago.

For the sake of conversation: I'm amazed at how many people claim personality and intelligence are key, but I've never seen any people with partners who could be considered ugly. I certainly couldn't be with someone I wasn't both physically and emotionally attracted to. Therefore ugliness must not actually exist since there will always be someone who is attracted to what other people might consider ugly, and the notion that personality and intelligence are key factors is redundant because physical attraction always plays into overall attraction. Nobody looks at a person and thinks, "That person isn't attractive to me. I think I'll go out with them!"

Attractiveness is usually the initial lure, but to keep them, you've got to have more. That's where personality comes in. A guy who's only interested in attractive women and ignores personality or intelligence is looking for arm candy, or a fuck-buddy.

71- Well that's my point. No one can say that that something more is the *only* thing keeping them around though. Physical attractiveness is a key, and the size of the key is different for everyone. No one ever throws that key away though, even if it is tiny for them.

All this key talk just reminded me of a joke my teen cousin told me the other day: Why are guys that sleep with many girls rated and girls that sleep with many guys frowned upon? ..because.. a key that can open any lock is considered a Master Key and a lock that can be opened by any key is useless..

Okay what I meant is I usually find a girl that is "smart" more attractive than a girl that plays "dumb" or is "dumb" even IF THEY BOTH LOOKED THE SAME. I am not saying looks do not matter because you MUST be attracted to your partner for a relationship to work. There is no secret formula to figuring it out, attractiveness is just something in your mind, you see what you wanna see and how you want to see it. Someone may say someone is hot and you disagree. It just depends on the person and their tastes.

Please. That "joke" makes me cringe. Outdated and so violated it is not even remotely funny anymore. It's like I'd say "men are like spoons. You don't want to eat your soup with a spoon that 100 people used before but you want a clean one".

My mom always tells me that I have a lot to work with but there will *always* be someone who's prettier, smarter, nicer, etc. Just like there's always someone who isn't any of those things. I'm sure your husband/fiance thinks you're beautiful and that's all that matters. And at least you have brains!
