Do you think this is an insult?
My best friend, who everyone thinks is very good looking, even beautiful, said to me as we were going out, "You look....almost pretty today!" We are both female, in case you're wondering.

yes... that's what you call a backhanded compliment.

No. It wasn't exactly an insult. It was simply rude, unkind, and unnecessary. This person is either extraordinarily clueless and insensitive or she isn't much of a friend. A real friend always find ways to make their friends feel good.

Sounds like your best friend's sense of humor. My guess is you are good looking, and she thinks it's amusing that you don't think so.

you could taake it as insult but what she is really saying is _ I'm so vain but I wish I looked as good you do

Absolutely. That was a pretty obvious backhanded complement.
I would not be friends with someone who would say things like that to me.

Yes, she’s nasty and rude.
She’s NOT your best friend..
I’d stop bring friends with a nasty conceited person like that.
