…. to a friend’s boob job? 🙂
I have a random question to ask. FI and I were discussing it, and he suggested I post on here to ask for your opinions, so here goes!
One of my good friends is getting breast implants next year. She’s super excited about it, and so I’m happy for her too. FI is in the medical field, so she’s asked him a few questions (through me) about the procedure – thus, she knows that he knows.
My question is: if your friend got them done, how would you want your FI/DH/SO to react? Haha we’ve been running through different scenarios and all of them seem awkward! Should he comment with something like “Hey, those look awesome!” or “The Doc did a good job on those”? Pretend he doesn’t notice at all (which, let’s be honest, is hard to do)? I’m at a loss!!! lol
I’m not a jealous person and am super comfortable with my own looks, so I’m posting this just for fun to get some opinions! And no, this isn’t intended to be a “are boob jobs okay” kind of thread. Just a light hearted “how should/could YOUR SO react to someone elses boobs?” 🙂 Or, conversely, “how would you like someone else’s SO to react to your new boobs?”

he doesn’t need to address it. if she asks him more questions later, that’s fine, but there’s no need for him to make a comment.

I don’t think he should react at all unless asked! I know thats how DH would handle it!
But then I know he would mention something when we are alone LOL

Knowing my fiance he wouldn’t say anything at all. All of the answers do seem awkward though. I’m not even sure how he’d react if someone asked what he thought. And I know I would never ask someone else’s SO what they thought of my new boobs. I’m not super helpful but I guess with us, it just wouldn’t be brought up at all because like you said, all the options seem awkward.

@FMM: I think mine would have a reaction when we were alone too but only when I brought it up.

@AlmostMrsDoc: He needs to avoid that conversation. Her questions should be to her Physican or the Physican Assistant not your man!

Lol thats what I was thinking too… I can’t see it ending gracefully any other way!

If one of my friends got a boob job and said something (was fishing for a compliment, for example) or it was SUPER obvious, I’d expect DH to just be tactful and say something like, “glad you’re happy with them!” and if she asked how they looked to a group of us, I wouldn’t mind if he said they looked good on her. He’d be terribly uncomfortable, though, but his sister had hers done…he’s pretty indifferent to boob jobs in general. He can’t even tell real or fake ones apart.

I can’t stop picturing you all at a party, and SO blurting out “hey! Nice tatas!”…as total silence falls among the rest of the guests.
Bwahaha. So great in my head.
I’d probably not address it unless directly asked to do so. And then make vague polite statements and avoid references to flotation devices

@Miss Peach Tree BAHAHAHA best response EVER!!!! No flotation device talks, got it!

If it were me, I’d prefer my FI not address it to her. That seems uncomfortable and inappropriate.

It’s hilarious to think about all the possibilities, but I would expect FI to keep his mouth shut :).

He shouldn’t say anything unless he is specifically asked or if there is some type of “elephant in the room” situation where everyone else is commenting on it. In that case he should be as tactful and neutral about it, and not say something like “wow nice bobbies you got there.” From what I’ve seen with girls that have boob jobs they like getting attention or comments from them. Some girls even let other people touch them to show how “real” they feel. So it really depends on how extroverted the girl is, and if you think she would feel comfortable with getting comments on them.

I honestly think that would be very embarrasing for everyone, no matter how cool you are with it. There’s no way for him not to look like either a skeeve or like a guy w/a wandering eye. 3 of my friends have had this done, and my FI has not said a word to me or them about it. Whatever he wants to think in his HEAD is fine with me lol.

My FI is quite shy so he wouldn’t mention anything to her, and if she asked he would probably blush and say “oh excellent” or something like that because that’s what he says in awkward situations lol. But definitely he would say something to me after. I’ve mentioned wanting to get a boob job (barely fit an a-cup) but he’s not interested in me doing that (and I probably wouldn’t anyway) but it was interesting to hear what he thought about them 🙂
