Re: advice wanted
They say if you can't stand the truth, don't ask the question. You really didn't want the truth, you wanted him to tell you that YOU are prettier than this woman. No other answer would do (this may be subconscious). With you getting mad at him for telling the truth, he may be afraid to tell you the truth about anything like that again.
I found this out the hard way when I asked my husband when we were out to dinner if he could tell I gained weight. I wanted him to say, NO HONEY, YOU LOOK GREAT, but he told me the truth. YES, HE DID NOTICE. And I sat there at the table and actually burst out into tears! After that, I stopped asking him questions I already knew the answer to, but I was still deeply hurt and furious!
