A man took to Reddit for advice after he publically embarrassed his girlfriend by telling her he didn’t think she was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen – and users couldn’t decide who was wrong
A man has divided opinions online after he told his girlfriend that he didn’t think that she was the most beautiful woman in the world.
The man was out with his girlfriend Katie and his pals when talk turned to celebrity crushes.
After Katie disagreed with a statement from a friend that their celebrity crush was the most beautiful, she urged her partner to big up her beauty.
But he landed himself in deep water after he told her what he really thought of her.
Instead of telling her what she wanted to hear, he told her the truth – and it didn’t go down well.
“I think Katie is very beautiful, but she isn’t the most beautiful woman on Earth, so I’ve never told her that,” he wrote on his Reddit post.
“All our friends were looking at me, and I felt pressured.
“I felt like saying yes but I didn’t want to lie, and she’d never stop boasting about it. She’s kind of proud, one of her bad traits.”
“I honestly felt quite cornered and I admitted that no, she wasn’t the most beautiful woman.
“I tried to be polite but of course, my response sounded like s***. I immediately apologised.
“Katie looked so upset, and I felt really bad. She ended up leaving the place and she texted me saying I embarrassed her in front of all her friends and that I was an a**hole. I tried apologising again but she wouldn’t listen.”
But people in the comments were divided as to who was in the wrong, Katie or her boyfriend.
While a few people said he should have just said she was the most beautiful girl in the world even if she’s not, others thought he did the right thing by telling the truth.
One person joked: “There comes a time in every straight young man’s life that he faces a test.
“It’s an easy one, really – it just requires a compliment. Not a lot of thought, just smiling, nodding, and agreeing with her.
“You, my friend, have managed to fail this excruciatingly easy test.”
Another added: “All you had to say was yes…”
But a third said: “There was no right answer. It was a trap.”
Someone else thought she was just “fishing for compliments”, as they commented: “Dude, she was asking for it, tryna corner you like that. Sounds like a control thing if you ask me. Fishing for compliments is always unattractive and gets toxic really fast. Not mature on her part at all.”
Another person put: “I don’t understand why everyone is okay with him lying to her, she wanted him to tell the truth, she got it…”
