Like properly uncomfortable? Or secretly pleased? Or not at all?
and what it's for
"my!haven't you got a large cock!"
especially from people older/in some sort of more 'senior' position than me.
as though they are joking, unless im sure they are being sincere.
i'll either reply with irony or something witty if its a friend but if its h person of hierarchy or someone i don't know i'll either ignore or go bit quiet
i think your a great guy. i mean your just brilliant. i don't think we say we love each other enough.
depends what it is and who it's coming from
and i'll laugh it off and just say something stupid like "oh, i know"
like you posted pictures, i wasnt outside your house
CAN WE LEAVE IT AT THAT
but only because I don't know how to respond. Usually I go for "No, you're wrong. Go away."
I've always thought of them more as piercing.
so it's nothing to worry about
who've you made feel awkward?
unless I agree. But then makes me even more uncomfortable after recognising my vanity.
they make me really uncomfortable, but hearing about compliments second hand is the best thing ever, because then you know they're genuine.
im the worst at taking compliments. if someone even says "hey, i really like your watch" i get uncomfortable and mumble something about how i got it off a shop or somewhere.
I really wish I could just grin and go, 'thanks'! rather than making up some excuse about how its/i'm not really that brilliant.
someone said they liked my shoes the other day. I think i pretended to mishear them. Perfect.
after boasting about my exam grades on facebook- i take compliments well.
because i'm a narccissist I think at first "yeah they're so right", then I question the truthfullness of it, then their motives, then I get depressed.
besides, the compliments i get nearly always involve the word "cute" or "funny", which isnt a good thing. or is it. I think i'm a terrible person.
are probably the best compliments in the world (just not during sex).
Can i have "cruelly handsome" and "striking" instead, please? Thanks
in like, a striking and cruelly handsome way
i'd like "dashing", "windswept" and "worldly" please. hell i'd even settle for "dangerous" or "frightening".
not gonna happen. ever.
and I just took it as meaning that I'm not particularly goodlooking but I'm not a tramp.
I don't know how to return them either. And sometimes i'm worried that it looks like i'm fishing for compliments.
People can't look at me without being hurt. Trufax. Are you dashing and windswept?
i was once told i was charming and charismatic but the dude also told me i look like anthony costa so idk think i should believe it :(
But no, not really...
but i pretend its endearing. i think this helps that i can take compliments ok. i like compliments as long as they are sincere. thats important.
depends from which ppl I get them from. Bf = good. Friends and parents = uncomfortable
but never know how to respond without a sarcastic brush off. and i'm pretty lame at giving compliments too - it usually feels sleazy and agenda-driven. i think too much!
I don't receive them very well though...I usually reply with a sarcastic comment, or something.
someone complimenting your shirt for fashion= nice
someone complimenting your shirt then going on to say you'd be prettier if you smiled more = not
because I always think that the person giving me the compliment will suddenly feel embarrassed and silly for complimenting me. Plus the fact that I don't really know how to respond other than laugh slightly and say cheers.
not at all
if they are from good/famous people you can quote them to other people
russel brand in reality (in an innocent way) : you're very pretty
Isthisinteresting on the internet: You're a total fag
guy at an outdoor concert: you're the palest person I've ever seen
bless his heart
Yep. But I love awkwardness, so what happens now?
Or actually, I have a tendancy to forget all worthwhile compliments in an instant, so I dunno. But anyway, as for the douchebags on the street, their compliments make me ill and feel like shrivelling up inside, and old people compliments don't really have an effect. Old people will compliment anyone.
