DATES is a pain, and potential suitors will go to confusing extremes to deserve attention.
A woman who calls herself the “fat girlfriend” in her social group shared the crass pick-up lines men use when going out.
Kate Day posted on TikTok about her experience at a girls’ night out and shared some of the worst “compliments” men have ever offered her.
“Things boys said to me on a ‘fat’ girlfriend night,” she wrote in a caption, flashing the icky comments over footage of herself dancing to a throbbing club beat.
“I don’t usually go for fat birds, but I’d make an exception for you,” one man reportedly told Day.
Other insidious compliments followed the same line, simultaneously trying to grab Day’s attention while belittling her beauty.
“God, you’re really pretty for a fat bird,” Day recalled as a man said to her.
Another tried to rank them on a numerical scale: “Wow if you lost weight you’d be 10 plus!” he said.
Some men opted for innuendos. “I bet you’re a feisty guy, hey,” Day recalled an admirer saying to her.
And even when the men didn’t comment directly on Day’s body, they still managed to come across as critical.
“God, aren’t you tired of dancing like that?” a man asked her in the club, thoroughly bringing down the mood.
In comments to Day’s video, other women regretted her experience and scoffed at the flimsy attempts at flirtation she endured.
“The pole was low and they were still hovering under it,” wrote one woman.
Another woman recalled similar pick-up lines she’d heard on nights out with friends.
“You forgot ‘You have beautiful eyes’ and ‘I love your bubbly personality,'” joked the viewer.
“Oh yeah, those classics,” Day agreed, adding lots of laughing emojis.
Day clearly had a good sense of humor regarding the obnoxious comment, and she shared the tactic she uses to quash annoying flirtation.
“My energy didn’t deserve this,” she wrote in a comment. “I just took a good look down now that says… for your own safety, run.”
She also gave good advice for men who might want to flirt with her, or any woman with a similar body type.
“Don’t be that person,” she wrote in the caption of the post.
“Most of us ‘fat’ birds, in fact all of us plus size beauties, aren’t into you,” she explained. As icing on the cake, she added, “We’re not interested and our fine *sses are taken!”
