And she certainly doesn't want him to find ~ny flaw in her get-up. If a woman cooks a new dish and asks a man how he likes it, the correct answer is "Delicious." Any half-hearted answer or suggestion that maybe it needs a little more of this or a little less of that wiE be token as a direct insult.
