Do your parents ever say `tactful` things about your appearance which aren`t very nice?

No, if they're going to say something they usually aren't very tactful at all.

My mom once forced me to go shopping with her and MAKE me try on crappy clothes. I ended up wearing a baby blue t-shirt with a dragon fly on it with jeans and a denim jacket. (this was horrible. I am slighty gothic) and she says to me " you know, you would look a lot prettier if you wore more denim. " I laughed but was mortified and was slighty sad that at that moment my mom did not know me at all.

No not tactful at all. Just straight out honest...and not good things either
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/13/03 - 3:20:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
My mum always tells me very un tactful things, expects me to take it, when I didnt ask her opinion and then has a go at me when she asks for my honest opinion on her

Sometimes my mom says tactful things, but not often.

all the time, except they aren't remotely tactful, just insulting
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/13/03 - 6:01:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, and then I (tactfully) remind them of their lack of tact.

the other day i was in a really good mood and my dad says your face is bright red have you been crying do you need to talk
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 4/1/03 - 10:58:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
we were shopping yesterday and my mom said your sister could try on anything an dit would look good on her but your a different story
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 4/1/03 - 12:44:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well I don't get compliments, and I don't know why I would, but my mom always spends ten minutes telling my friend Rachel how very PRETTY she is, right in front of me. It's insulting.

Yeah, my mom wishes I was a girly-girl.
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/19/03 - 10:42:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, how about your eyebrows look like sh_t, stop plucking them, or you dress like a promiscuous trollop, when i'm wearing jeans and a hoodie, but what really defines what a promiscuous trollop wears?

This one time, my mom said "You look like a total moron." Man that was an upgrade from what she was saying a few weeks ago.

Well, I added this question after a bad day, my mum said in a butter-couldn't-melt-in-my-mouth way: 'That top makes you look like Marilyn Monroe dear.' and followed by telling my best friend's mother that her daughter (my bewst friend) would obviously need the size below my trousers. Why thank you darling mother. :P

Not anymore. But my mother did dress me until I moved out.
I still have no fashion sense or sense of style, but I'm okay with that now, because my parents can't say a thing to me about it.

My mom just says I look beautiful.
She did one time say that we should put me on a diet though..
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 11/11/07 - 3:17:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
"You're a beautiful girl, but you'd be prettier if you were thin"

I'm one of those people who aren't thin, but also, unless you're one of those petty people who find being 5 lbs visibly overweight "fat", I'm not fat either. I just have a pot belly.

My parents have no tact whatsoever. I'll come downstairs and my mom will say, "What are you wearing? That doesn't match, it looks horrible on you, and it makes you look even more fat. And for lunch today, make sure you don't get any crap from the vending machines or anything. Try to get a salad, and make sure to get the low-fat dressing." .... and that's my morning in a nutshell. No wonder I try to spend so much time away from home, or at least from my parents.
