As men, we’ve all said stupid things to women without meaning to- it’s part of the deal. Examples below, post yours. Ladies, you can chime in too.
-A friend of mine in college went to pick up this girl he knew from church on their first date together. She opens the door and she’s all dressed up. He looks at her and says, “Wow, you look so different, you look beautiful.” *crickets*
-In college, I had this crush on a girl I knew. We went out a few times, nothing romantic or physical. She graduated and we lost touch for about a year, and one day I called her up to say hi. We chatted a bit and she told me she had to go because her fiancé was picking her up. My brain record-scratched- fiancé? So in a flash of savvy composure I said, “Fiancé’? You’re getting married? Are you sure?” *crickets*
-This gem is from about a month ago. My wife told me she just found a new wrinkle at the corner of her mouth. I looked at it and, trying to make her feel better, said, “Oh, that’s not new.” *crickets*
And in the interest of equality, several years ago I was introduced to a female friend of a friend. I told her my name, Gus, and she asked me if I was Greek. I said no, and she said, "Are you sure?"
