I'm not really thrilled with the "Amazon" reference in the first place, but hey, if she doesn't mind...

Post op or pre op, geez, JJ. I never got that one.

yeah im 5'11 tall and I have gotten the amazon reference from a date before , first and last one I might add . I did not laugh when he said it and I think he got the point and he actually had the nerve to ask me for a 2nd date , I told him not on his life .

I had a guy I dated tell me to cut my hair super short, because he preferred that to my long dark hair. I just told him I liked my hair the way it was. We just fizzled after that, but I wasn't offended.

If she has a great self esteem, talk with her about it. My husband prefers my hair long, and he asked me to regrow it when I got it cut a few years ago.

You could even give her a salon/spa visit as a treat. (She gets to pick the services.) Then take her out for a night on the town to celebrate something like her birthday, anniversary, etc....

You can even say something like...My (mom/sister/best friend's girlfriend) said this salon was awesome and I should treat you.

I agree with all the posters who say to zip your lip. And I have to wonder why you're dating her if all you can do is find fault.

This guy I met online, who at first seemed really nice (don't they all?) - we exchanged our photos and his comment to me was, "You should darken your eyebrows more.", and, "Do you like that style of glasses you're wearing?" Well, nix on him....who needs it.

You have a point. This is probably why he's not dating her anymore. It seems he not only didn't like her hairstyle and lack of makeup, he didn't like her height, finding it too "Amazon"-like.

They've both moved on, hopefully to better matches.

Why would you want to, when you could date someone you do find physically attractive instead? Trying to control another doesn't sound like a plan for success, in any realm of a relationship, nor is it fair to your subject of intent.

And, if you truly must venture into critique territory & risk the chance of offending a dating partner, then approach her as you'd welcome being approached & critiqued, knowing she doesn't approve to the point where she must tell you at the risk of ruining your friendship. If that isn't clear... steer clear & don't waste her time in the first place, if you don't approve.

BTW, I've had bf's, who sometimes dressed in a way that wasn't to my liking. I never said a word. They were happy... why would I?

I don't understand when people go out with someone, then immediately want to mold them to their liking...

As for dressing, on our second date the guy I'm seeing showed up in green cargo shorts, white athletic socks pulled up to his mid calf and blue high top converse. It looked absolutely ridiculous But you know what, that's what he feels comfortable in and that's what I get to deal with now.

At my age, I still can break out with powder and foundation. I should crop the hair too, but I'm growing it to donate it, and hopefully soon because it's driving me nuts.

My wife tries to play this game with me all the time and I avoid at all costs... lose-lose situation!

If I were to tell her I liked her better in one outfit than another she'd feel offended... If I tell her she looks great in whatever outfit she tries on instead of one over the other she thinks i'm lying and that I'm only A. trying to be nice or B. telling her I like all options just to get her to stop asking me!

GRRR... lol
