Ex Story # 3

He told me I was "cute".

Now this might not seem (especially to you Yanks) like the most heinous crime ever. To explain, in this part of the world "cute" really isn't much of a compliment. It doesn't translate into beautiful/hot/gorgeous/sexy etc; it's more the sort of thing that gets said about a particularly ugly puppy. Or baby.

As if all this damning-by-faint-praise wasn't bad enough, he followed it up with:

"I'm not normally attracted to cute girls"

  • Even if 'cute' really was meant as s compliment, that follow-up really blows big-time. It's like he just finished reading "Oh, the Things Fuckwits Will Say" and can't get it out of his head.

    fucking moron.

  • The sad thing is, I really do think he meant it as a compliment.

    Y'see, he was a very 'honest' person. Really. THat was his general excust for being such a twat.

  • Yup, we Yanks (never thought I'd get to call myself that being Mexican-American) would take "cute" as a compliment, unless the goal is to be a steaming sexpot. Then not so much.

    But that last part is crap no matter where it's uttered.
