I do sometimes need people to tell me if my dress makes me look fat, but I think that is a different story entirely.
That's easy enough. Are you fat? If not, you won't look fat in the dress. If so, you will look fat in the dress. Simple. Believe me, if you are an attractive woman, even a burka won't prevent men from noticing. Likewise if you are a fatty, wearing stripes or dark clothes or platform shoes isn't going to fool anyone though your girlfriends might think it's cute that you try. Besides, if you really are overweight, isn't it better to take control of your health than to cover up the results of your failure to do so? "Do I look fat in this dress" is really just a shallow attempt to validate your self-esteem. Secure people have no need for this. By going along with this, a man is sending you the message that how you feel about yourself should come from other people. No one would encourage you to depend on them for something so important unless he wanted to have control over you. If a man really cares about you, he'll encourage you to find that kind of security within yourself instead. The real problem here is a pretty terrible one. Almost no women are ever really loved by a man. This is the failure of most men, and fully explains why so many women are superficial manipulative bitches who are full of drama and/or need to be the center of attention at all times. They are lusted after, needed, worshipped, pursued, related to, used, or taken for granted, but few are ever really loved. It's hard to appreciate that until you realize that sufficiently advanced lust combined with mutual need can look a lot like real love to the majority of the population who don't know any better. Many marriages are built on that lust-need duo. Coincidentally, many marriages fail.

Err, I was just joking around. Can we make out now? I understand that your completely pedantic reply was probably the result of years and years of repressed angst and rage, but I still think it's the dress that makes me look fat. I do however appreciate your attempt to be honest.
