In The Dark About The Dancer

| Romantic | March 9, 2012

(My roommate is a dancer and often very concerned about her weight, even though she doesn’t need to be. She constantly asks me or her boyfriend if we think she is fat or comment on how she needs to lose weight. Unfortunately for her boyfriend, he never had any sisters, so has no training on how to deal with these things.)

Friend: “[My name], do you think I’m fat?”

Me: “No, of course I don’t.”

Friend: *buries her face in her pillows* “I think I’m fat.”

Boyfriend: “It’s okay, I like your fat.”

(We then spent the next 20 minutes lecturing him on why that is not an appropriate response.)
