Today, while out with my boyfriend, I gave a beggar some cash, who then smiled at me and said to my boyfriend, "You have a beautiful little lady, take good care of her." Flattered, I hoped my boyfriend would agree with the compliment. He turned and said, "Hear that? He said you were little." FML

Complimenting strangers is the best way to make someone's day

I guess oral sex isn't in the running, then.

I'm hoping that op's boyfriend is just a guy being goofy and didn't try to insult her height.

Yeah, I'm not understanding how this was an FML moment for OP. She got a compliment and a smile from someone she helped. Being called "little" isn't something I'd be offended by.

I really hope he was talking about her height and not her weight. But talking about neither would've been best..

Aww that's kinda cute I think xD my boyfriend and I are always making fun of each other and playing around, he's also 6'1"while I'm a mere 5'2" so its the kind of thing he'd say to me xD I would take it as a fml, op xD

Women don't like being called small. It's why some of us voluntarily ruin our joints by wearing murdering heels. So, after rule #1, learned rom the previous illustration: Don't touch a woman's food; here is now rule #2: don't call us small. Please.

It doesn't offend me. I like being short. It's nice because when I cuddle up on my boyfriend or sit on his lap, I don't get in his way.

I like being short too. I hate heels.

I also enjoy being short. My boyfriend has admitted that he doesn't like tall ladies, so it's a bonus.

At least a he didn't call you big and fat, right? 'Little' can be a compliment.

why is being called "big" or "fat" bad? some people are comfortable with their bodies

In my opinion that's what she gets for fishing for compliments. I don't think it's a loss at all, just some harmless teasing.

#76, She wasn't fishing for compliments at all. She just helped a guy out.

Even though she wasn't fishing for complements, it still seems like harmless teasing.

I agree. Boyfriends sometimes act like that to mask their emotions. No real indicator of how he feels though. I thumbed up.

Sooo is your ego so fragile you need to seek compliments from your bf constantly? Just be happy with who and what you are, and oh; quit giving bums your money. Many of them just want money to buy drugs, and alcohol.

1. this didn't come off to me as being needy. rather a cute moment to share with her bf. 2. while that may be true, many others are just regular folk down on their luck. 3. who shoved a stick up your ass?

Geez 24 is a little prick. 26, I don't think it was a stick, probably the whole trunk.

Fine. You can call me anything you want, I don't give a rats ass. You people aren't capable of insulting me. Go ahead and give your money away. The hope here is that someday you will mature to the point where you will realize how foolish it is to throw away your money.

And I hope you grow up and realize that money is truly worthess in the long run. What's better, dying poor and happy with you life or rich and miserable?

64, Trying to help someone in need is not "throwing your money away." Yes, some people only use it for drugs and alcohol, but there are many who don't. Have you ever given money to a homeless person and then actually seen them go buy drugs with it? Its a stereotype and not always factual. Let's hope you are never in a situation where you are starving and homeless and someone like you comes along who doesn't want to "throw away" their money.

Agreed, Money is the root to all evil like some might say.

Hey, a compliment nonetheless.

Sucks with your bf, but that was really nice of you to give the man money

It sounds like to me her boyfriend is calling her fat.. If he's then fyl

I imagined it more as talking about her height. Guys tend to like how short and tiny their girlfriends are and sometimes it's amusing to them just how tiny our hands and feet can be next to theirs.

imbatmanfir 15

That is exactly what I meant

Next time he wants to have sex just giggle, say "little" and stare at his crotch. FYL.

He sounds like a guy with a good sense of humour. Did you really need his compliment anyways, I bet you already know how he feels. :)

EXACTLY!! It's why boyfriends say comments like that, because actions speak louder than words.

relationships are no fun without making jokes at one another!

Just let your boyfriend know that when he's old, wrinkly, and grey, you will be young, sexy, and gay. (Gay as in happy).

What if OP's boyfriend is already 45 years younger than OP?
