Skinny girls, how do you reply to this? EDIT, and wish CM wouldn't give this post a title it wasn't really about!
*thanks for changing the title back to the original CM! Never had a featured post before. Hate to have it be misleading.
What do you say when someone looks at you and says *You're so skinny*? First of all,it's rude. I would never ever say to someone *You're so fat* or anything like that! And yeah, as someone here will surely point out I don't have to say anything. But I'd like to know how others react. I know I'm skinny and I'm happy with how I look, that's not the point.
I've always been petite, my entire life. So I should have a good response by now but every time someone makes comments like these I just don't know what to say! I usually just smile and ignore, but the other day the person who said it just kept staring at me as if she was waiting for a response. We were in a room with a group of 4 other people and all eyes turned to me and I just didn't have a good comment and wish I had.
No need for negativity here ladies. I'm just honestly curious how other skinny girls handle these type of comments. Thanks.
EDIT: it's not about whether being called skinny is a compliment! IMO, it's not unless one has lost a noticeable amount if weight. It's about how to respond when put in a situation where the person is waiting for a reply and 10 people in the room are also looking at you. Waiting. Watching, What will she say?
I don't appreciate words being put in my mouth. Or in my text as the case may be. So this won't be here much longer but thanks to all who gave an honest answer!
