A quick disclaimer: I’m not asking this to try and be mean, or make anyone feel bad, or anything, I’m just curious. I just want to know why this happens, and that’s even if anyone knows the answer.
Why is it that a man can’t tell a woman that she looks good without the woman belittling it in some way? I’m almost 35 years old and I can’t remember a single time that I told a woman she looked good and the woman didn’t say something to the effect of, “Yeah, right,” or, “Whatever,” or “You’re only saying that because you’re my husband/relative/friend”.
Is there some reason for this? I don’t get it. I’m also trying to avoid this later in life. I’m dreading the day that Baby E will do this to me. It will break my heart to hear her say, “Yeah, right. You’re only telling me I’m pretty cause you’re my dad.”
