    ¬_¬ The other day I had a convo with my dad. I'll summise it.

    Me: Lol dad I swear you're skinnier than me.
    Dad: Probably... I'm a smaller build than you.
    Me: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?!??!??! ?!?!?! HOW DARE YOU!?
    Dad: :lolwut: Whaat?
    Me: I'm not bigger than you I was JOKING! You weigh much more than me!!!!
    Dad: Sorry sorry sorry! :confused:


    Yeah, if he called me squishy I'd have killed him.
    How can any guy be a smaller build then his daughter. he a midget or something?

    I love being called curvy, I see it as a massive complement.

    I'd be really offended if someone called me skinny though.

    I call my friend squishy sometimes, but more as an affectionate name, e.g. 'hello squishy'. It's not because I think she's fat, more that she has a huge chest and I enjoy squishing her face.

    No, he's tall and skinny, whereas I'm skinnyish but have big boobs, which makes me look bigger..

    Haha, I realise I was being all defensive. Thanks for the compliment.

    Does it shock you that someone who is "hot" can also be slightly overweight?! Or vice versa...

    I wouldn't mind being called curvy, curvy can be sometimes sexy. But squishy is just weird, it reminds me of being really wobbly.

    Did you really say 'lol' and did he really say 'lolwut', squishy?


    Anyways, I call my sister 'squishy' and she hates it, though some (girl) friends of mine think it's sweet and affectionate. :iiam:

    No - think about it.

    Nigella Lawson and Fern Britton are size 16 and whilst both are quite squishy both are considered hot.

    squish.

    No, he didn't really say 'lol'. This conversation wasn't even wholly in English tbh.

    squish.
    Well this is what I thought, but you know blokes nowadays... all for the skinny war-victim lookie likes.

    Just out of a matter of interest, why do you say "squish" at the end of each post? Not that I have an issue with it...

    curvy is fine, who really thinks its nice to be a stick? Curvy jus refers to your hip to waist ratio, which i think is sexy. Squishy on the other hand means they can squish u = play with your fat and thats offensive. However it depends what way it is said. My little brother said i was cofortable to lie on coz i was kinda squishy, but the way he said it wasnt offensive.

    Why would you be offended to be called squishy though? Don't you think it is cute to have some squish? - If a lady is curvy then the chances are she has an accentuated booty relative to her waist which invariable containts a fair amount of squish - of course her squish will be more concentrated in that area of the body rather than evenly distributed.

    I for one would take it as a compliment if I could be more squishy.

    squish.
    Ye I did think this when I opened up this thread to be honest with you. I think it depends how its said / who it's said by and the situation you're in :dontknow:

    and how they meant it
