    What is a less attractive person called?

    What is a less attractive person called when they are brought along to a party by another person who wants to appear relatively better?

    There appears to be some incongruity in your member profile, which should be corrected. If your native language is, indeed, Moldavian (Romanian), your home country is probably the Republic of Moldova. Furthermore, Wikipedia tells us that the official and common language of the Maldives is Dhivehi.

    I made the same point here, rique.

    greenisgood replied in post #8 — justifiably — that neither 'Maldivian' nor 'Dhivehi' is an option in our list of languages.

    We should probably include 'Other' in that list.

    This is one of the more interesting questions that has come along lately. I am curious to know if the person we are talking about will know what word you are using to refer to them. Also, are you really planning to take somebody to a party with you to make you look more attractive?
