I’m just a little confused.
Tonight my husband and I went to a party dresses up like in the 20’s. It was great we had fun. We danced. I’m 5 month pregnant but my belly doesn’t show much which means at the moment I feel I look chubby and not at my best but it is ok.
At the end of the evening a woman that i had not notice from the whole evening comes up to me and she tells me “by the way you look fantastic just the way you are”.
I feel really “proud” or “happy” about this compliment coming out of the blue. I go directly to my husband to tell him.
He replies “obviously that’s the woman that has been staring at me the whole evening.” He meant that this woman was keeping chasing him with her eyes and he said she probably told me this as she had given up any hopes on my husband.
I couldn’t believe he told me this.
I thought the girl had noticed I was pregnant and wanted to make me feel good or something like this.
Anyway why a girl who had eyes on husband wouldcome to see me to give me a compliment???
This happened in the UK. I’m French so maybe it us a cultural difference? ??

There is a chance she just thought you were a cute couple and had been watching you.

Maybe it’s just me but I’d take the whole ” you’re great just as you are” comment coming from a stranger as a backhanded compliment. Or perhaps your husband just thought she was staring at him all night. Either way it doesn’t seem to be anything you should worry about.

Well, I’m a benefit of the doubt person and would have to witness it myself to see the vibe. Her intentions could have not been negative though it certainly seems awkward to say out of the blue to a stranger. There’s no way for your husband to know. That said, I’m confused why your husband would even tell you that because it’s just a downer…
I would try to just forget about it.

Thanks ladies!!! I thought it was a compliment too !!!
Weird my husband told me this but I guess he felt the woman was staring at him the whole evening therefore he could not believe her compliment was genuine. I don’t know. It’s really not a big deal but just confusing.

yellowmoon24: Lol, maybe she was really drunk…that’s all I can chalk it up to. I’ve gotten weirder random comments from strangers that have had a bit too much. So maybe it was an attempt for a compliment at your costume?
