    From a guy friend who isn't exactly winning any beauty pageants himself: "You have the personality, just not the body." I went home afterwards and cried. :(

    just last week, "I feel so fat and my husband doesn't like me like this. I was 115 when we met and sometimes he will tell me not to have seconds because I have gained so much weight. My sister in law has gotten really skinny and she said she just stopped eating to lose weight.. But you are a big girl and that's your thing."

    Don't really think that's a compliment, but I took it as one because I'm not crash dieting to please my *kitten* husband.

    Before losing weight, an older (bigger) woman who I hadn't seen for years told me: "I am SO GLAD you gained some weight! You always looked so fragile to me, like you could break at the slightest touch, like a twig."

    Gee, thanks. Yeah gaining weight is the best thing that ever happened to me.....

    "You are everything I ever wanted in a woman... Smart, kind, fun... but you just aren't pretty enough"

    Said by my SO 10 months after the birth of our second child when we had a brand new 2 year old and a 10 month old at home. I guess the first part was a compliment, right?

    I've also gotten, "You're mixed? Oh, well, you're white enough to pass." (It's always been from tourists in London, and I've had to actually explain that in England this is not something many people, if anyone, wants to hear.) Yeesh.

    "You could really be beautiful if you lost some serious weight" or my favorite "You have a really pretty face".

    "I'm proud of you for losing weight. But I preferred it when you had bigger boobs."

    "you don't sound like you're from West Virginia."

    um... thanks?

    Locals would say this to me when I was growing up. Pretty consistently. I took it as a compliment.

    This one was from my friend - Your ankles look so small - it's only because your calves are so big though. :noway:

    I don't think you use the word friend in the same sense I do.
