    Your Wife May Ask, “What Do You Think Of That Other Woman’s Dress?” What Would Be Your Answer?

    Do You Think Your Answer Will Impress Her? Do You Think There Are Some Men Who Compliment Other Women And Fails To Do The Same To Their Wives?

    It looks good, I will say. But not so much on her. On you it would look hot.

    What I would really be feeling is: God, that woman looks red-hot in that dress. Wish I could get my hands on her...

    I agree. Always tell your wife, that it's alright, but would look really good on her (your wife). If you make a good comment on the one that is wearing the are in trouble...guaranteed.

    My answer would be its a nice dress but it doesn't do it justice becasue the wrong woman is wearing it. It would look real good on you.

    If it looked good - say so!

    If it looked sleezy --- say so!

    If it makes her look hot --- keep your mouth shut!

    or the best answer is - "Why do you ask? Are you trying to get me into trouble?"

    I would say to my wife, "What a beautiful dress, you would look fabulous in it."

    The best answer would be for the man to say "It's nice, but I prefer your dress".  Woman remembers the little things her man says about things like this. It's a great opportunity to give your wife a compliment and put a smile on her face!

    it would depend on weather i liked the dress or not if i liked it i would say so but my ex would know i was looking at the dress with a mind to me wearing it she would know i was not looking at the other woman.

    no good telling lies to your wife she always knows women have a built in lie detector either tell the truth or keep quiet.

    It depends if your wife is insecure enough to twist your words into something totally out of context which most women are. You be the judge if she freaks out over insignificant things then is best to go with most of the advice posted. Either pet her ego or shut your mouth. If shes truly interested in you opinion  then answer honestly.

    A no-brainer.

    Simply say,"What dress? I'm too busy looking at you, beautiful!" And then affectionately slap her ass for emphasis.

    Sheesh, guys.

    Since I'm a crossdresser, I know that my wife is actually asking about her clothes. We both love to watch people, and we love to talk about women's clothes. We'll talk about how the shoes do or don't work or how someone's friends shouldn't have let her go out like that! We can be quite catty sometimes. It's all in fun though. Sometimes we see a really bad outfit, and my wife makes me promise her not to let her go out wearing something like that. I make her promise me the same thing. -- Nikki

    More times than not...Its a trap!!! Anytime your wife asks you what you think of that other womans dress or that other womans anything becareful what you say.

    Lets think about this for a minute. You are a man. Do you honestly believe your wife thinks you are a good judge of dresses? If you are you might want to rethink which way you are sliding.

    Glance up for only a split second the look away. Carefully answer: Its okay.

    That is the safest way to answer. If she is angry over this answer she is looking to argue and no answer is a good answer.

    Good answer: "That dress is sexy.  It would look even better on you."  Wrong answer: "As long as she's showing cleavage any man would like it".  If the dress truly looks better on the other woman: "I don't know" followed by some excuse like "she's a bit too heavy/thin, and her dress is too flashy/boring."

    A neutral answer would be, "I'm not really a good judge of dresses."  This works for most people (unless you happen to be a clothing designer).

    Tell your wife "it would look better if you were wearing it".the bible says make your wife feel secure in your love.By a man complimenting someone else thats not exactly making the wife feel secure in his love.Am I right?lol

    Tell her the truth--if the dress looks good on the woman it looks good she ask me remember i didn't look at the woman and say she looks good in that dress.

    Okay, a wife asks her husband, “What Do You Think Of That Other Woman’s Dress?”, not "How Does She Look In It." Therefore, I see no reason why the man would not just be honest in assessing the "dress" and leaving it at that.

    Now, if she asks, “How Do You Think The Woman Look in That Dress?” Again, I would recommend being honest or simply ask the wife why she feels it necessary to draw your attention to another woman.

    I do not believe "games" or as someone else said, "setups" are good for relationships. Deal with it maturely and do not allow yourself to be drawn into a game you prefer not to play.

    " It's lovely, and would look even lovelier on you. "

    Many men take their wives for granted; they think they needn't comliment their wives anymore, because she already knows how they feel, but a little positive reinforcement never hurts.

    My answer would be "What other woman".  Apparently that was too short.

    If it looks good you could say, "yes, it looks good". If it looks bad, you could say, "No, it looks bad".

    Just an idea! tongue

    Honesty is the best policy, but then the man should break it to me gently when criticizing the wife in terms of sloppy dress etc. Positive should be good, women want their man to honestly appreciate them!

    I haven't a wife, so I will substitute a woman along the same lines.

    If it is an ugly or plain dress: "I didn't really notice it." Because I probably didn't.

    If it is a nice dress: "It looks very nice on her."

    If it is obvious that she's fishing for compliments by asking me about another woman's dress: "Why? This question is suspicious."

    If you think your wife likes the dress or it's sexy, say, "Honey, it would look so much better on you."
    If it looks bad, say, "I don't know.  What do you think?"

    Hmmm... It seems like a trap. You'll be safe by answering "It's a nice dress. It will look great on you."

    I tell  my gal: You have nicer dresses in your wardrobe. If she is wearing a dress, then I always answer : Your dress is nicer. I mean it all the time to because I love the way she fills a dress up.
