It can be hard to know how to respond when someone asks you if they look fat. If you tell your girlfriend that she’s looking a little portly you may end up sleeping on the sofa for the next week. With these kinds of questions, no matter what you say you may find yourself in trouble with your answer.
Maybe your girlfriend is looking a little chunky, perhaps her clothes don’t fit properly or are so tight she looks like she is wearing a sausage casing. Even though she knows she is gaining weight, she might not appreciate hearing it from you.
Next time someone asks if you if they look fat, try one of our funny comebacks below and hopefully things won’t work out too badly.

When you are dealing with someone who asks if they look fat and you find it stressful, consider getting support from a professional. Talking to a counselor is a great way to work through a challenging situation, and help you find some strategies to work through the person’s behaviour.
Better Help is a great resource where you can talk to a counselor from the comfort of your own home.
Taking care of your own needs isn’t selfish, and you will feel better in the long run.
