You know those little moments in time where a guy’s girlfriend or wife is modeling new jeans and she turns to him and says, “Do these make my butt look fat?” Most guys in this situation tend to look very similar to a deer caught in the headlights when you see the expression on their faces. They know that no matter what they say it’s not going to be the right answer unless they can answer in the negative with a convincing tone. These are times when you really need to think quickly and seriously before delivering your answer. This can be true of women with sensitive male partners as well.
Simply put, the basic rule about telling little white lies is this: As long as your partner isn’t going to be seen in public in a way that will get them ridiculed and made fun of to a huge degree, let it go. If your partner is happy about something regarding their looks, as long as it won’t be permanent and won’t be TOTALLY ridiculous, agree that it looks nice. These are the types of little white lies that don’t hurt anyone and usually won’t get you busted. Simply agree with your partner and hope that the phase passes.
