The Venting Booth The Venting Booth

Can't believe DH said this

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
After losing 20 pounds since February 2013, I gained about 5 back. I'm 5'3" and have always had chunky legs and calves. My thighs got smaller but calves stayed the same.

I was trying on a dress for a cousin's wedding in May and asked DH what he thought. Looked me up and down, "starting to get a little cankly, baby."

Speechless. Said, they've always been this way. I have Body Dysmorphia, and I know I'm sensitive about stupid things but his response to my same-size "cankles"?

"Wow. Genetics are not good to you."

Are you f*cking KIDDING me? All I could do was storm out, grabbed a pillow and blanket to sleep on the couch. He went to bed. No apology or anything. Am I overreacting?

Or perhaps he could learn to be not an ass. If he really thinks she looks that way and is willing to treat her like he is a complete ass then why the hell is he with her. But hey, if you want to be told that your ass if fact or that your ankles looks like shit then by all means please to enjoy being emotionally abused by someone who is supposed to treat you good for the rest of your life.

Are you fucking kidding me? Apparently your ok with your man acting like a total dick. Have fun in that marriage.

Quoting Anonymous: Honestly, you asked . Men aren't the best at being sensitive and sometimes don't word things the best, so you have to be careful when asking some men for advice. Don't ask if you don't want to hear something that might hurt. My husband will tell me ( if I ask) if something doesn't look right on me or if I've put on a few , but he's careful not to say it in a hurtful way. Some men just say it however the like and it comes out hurtful. Ask yourself is what he said true? Did he say it the right way, no. Does he still love you, I'm sure he does, but he was insensitive. Talk to him about how it made you feel, then move past it.

when asked those kind of questions my dh always replies with "I refuse to answer that because any answer I might give will be held against me for the rest of my life".

I'll keep that in mind if he ever says something again. I am training for my second half marathon. He's asthmatic. If I even mention the idea, maybe he'll think twice :(

My dh made a comment about my weight once. I drug him to the gym with me for a solid week straight and made him do an exercise routine with me that was pretty intense to lose some of the weight I started gaining and I never heard another complaint about my weight again even when I would put on 10-15 pounds.

That would hurt me. My husband is pretty careful what he says because he knows I am pretty sensitive because of some past issues.
