The girls and I went out for drinks and dinner on Saturday night. While at the bar, I started talking to a friendly guy. Our conversation lasted for 30 minutes. He was very complimentary and called me voluptuous at one point. Two of my friends said that that was an insult and that he meant 'you're cute, but curvy and probably could stand to lose a few pounds'. My other two friends disagreed with their assessment. Is the word 'voluptuous' an insult or compliment? How should I feel about this because now I'm confused?
