Today, while doing the grocery shopping with my boyfriend we came across another woman also out shopping, who looked shockingly like me despite her being another race, hair color and the like. The second he saw her, he blurted out, ''Oh, it's a pretty version of you!'' FML

Aw OP don't be disgruntled, I'm sure there's a prettier version of him out there somewhere.

What a hurtful thing to say. I'm sure he didn't mean what he was implying but, shit, man, think before you speak!

What an asshole

Unless he's Alec Baldwin.

He said "pretty good version", not a " better version". You people are acting like the bf said something outrageous.

Look again, #31. He said "pretty version". While not the most outrageous thing to say, it's still a pretty cringe-y thing to blurt out.

Yeah but OP might be the gorgeous version whereas random chick is just pretty.

What he should have said is that no matter how similarly she looks to you, YOU are prettier. I swear some men need lessons on being good boyfriends. All the same, some women need lessons on being good girlfriends. Why is this not a thing yet?

You don't compliment someone by insulting another. That's wrong. Looks like you need lessons on being a decent human.

That's hardly an appropriate assumption based on my comment. I was saying that he should tell OP that OP is prettier because of the fact that he chose to be in a relationship with her. How does that mean I need lessons on being a decent human being?

Where do you see an insult 36? She said he should tell his gf she is prettier. That's not insulting anyone. He wouldn't be calling her ugly.

I thought 4 said op needed to tell the boyfriend she was prettier, which I thought was kind of weird and mean. I misread. My bad.

Obviously, if they looked similar, the margin of how much the mentioned girl is "prettier" than her should be considerably small. If someone said you looked like Beyoncé, but not as beautiful, would you still take it as an insult?

Thank you #38 for understanding my point. I appreciate that. However, due to the fact that some people on here don't know how to read, my comment still got buried. It is what it is. :)

Really not a fan of people who put down their partner like this... It may have been a joke but what's the point of being with someone who doesn't lift you up.

I'm sure you're positive 100% of the time

It sounds like he didn't mean it - he just had a foot-in-mouth moment. My husband has had plenty of those; his filter is a little delayed sometimes. It's so darn cute when he realizes and tries to recover, I just laugh. It's good for couples to not take themselves so seriously. :-)

9, there's a difference between being positive all the time and being hurtful & negative. You don't need to be positive all the time, but don't put your person down either.

I'm sure it was just a joke

Doing the groceries???

How exactly does one "do" groceries?

Well, at least there's probably some uglier versions of you too.

How long does he have in his contract before he can upgrade?
