Boyfriend School – The correct way to answer the question, “Does this make my butt look big?”

butt This is the second lesson in the Boyfriend School series. Husbands, of course, are welcome. Women, you already know this information, so you can skip this post.

This subject is not that difficult, but I see young men mess it up time after time. The question, “Does this make my butt look big?” has become a cliché. A popular book is entiltled, “Does this clutter make my butt look big?”  A famous humor blog writer, who happens to be my friend Kathy at The Junk Dawer, just wrote a post entitled, “Does This Car Make Me Look Fat?” But at its core, this subject is no laughing matter. When a guy is presented with this question by the object, I mean woman, of his desire, he better get the answer right, or he’ll have to quench his desire with a cold shower!

After years of careful observation, I have learned that the correct way to answer this question politely is based entirely on ethnicity. And I know I must be correct because this is very simple, and simple is usually right.

If your woman is either black or hispanic, and she asks, “Does this make my butt look big?”, the polite response is, “Yeah, baby! Bring it to me!!”

If your lover is anything else, you should grace her with, “Big??? No way!!! You look curvalicious!!!” Of course, you must be perfectly sincere.

How difficult is that? It always pays to use good manners.

You’re welcome.


Thanks to Jen at Sprite’s Keeper for yet another excellent Spin Cycle prompt.

    Lucky you! We need more men like that, with "most of the answers." The rest of us are just floundering around!

    I would kill to get my hands on that manual! LOL


    Damn! I didn't mean to come off "sage!" Isn't that for really, really old people?

  4. LOL-this is perfect! If only guys understood how simple it is-my husband has been forever greatful since I told him that all I want him to say is, "Poor baby! I love you. You're beautiful!" He's actually passed that phrase onto a couple of his guy friends! ;p

    Yeah. It's nice to be accepted, and wanted, just the way we are!


    Right on! I'm all for subliminal messages. I call it planting a seed. How could he NOT answer you in the affirmative!


    Your comment is really great! I'm glad you could tell your husband exactly what you needed to hear, and I'm glad he would do that for you. It's a win-win situation! ; )
