The social dilemma today comes from an email I got from Lauren. She asked that I pose her question to you, so here goes: Hi Jaime, I love listening to your show and especially the social dilemma. I have one and I'm hoping that you would be willing to ask it on the air, as it's something I deal with all the time, and maybe other people do to. I've been married for about 14 years. I love my husband and I believe he loves me, but we have a problem that we often fight about. He doesn't hesitate to tell me when I look "bad." He'll tell me if my hair doesn't look it's best, or if he thinks the shirt or dress I'm wearing doesn't look great. Sometimes I ask the question, but most times, I don't and he just offers up the critique without any prompting. And it really annoys me. I have to say, sometimes it makes me feel bad, but he says he's doing it to be helpful. So if you would ask if others go through this, I'd really appreciate it. Does your spouse tell you when you look bad and is it okay for them to do it? Thanks so much - Lauren Well, I guess it depends on whether or not it's done with love. If it is, then I guess it's okay, but if it's done in a mean critical way, then no, it's not okay. Of course, even if it's done with love, it's still annoying but I'd rather know if something doesn't look right before I head out. What about you? Let's help Lauren out. What do you think? Let me know at the TRY Facebook page.
