You know, I'm finding this topic and discussion really interesting, partly because I have a different feel about it and am now wondering if I'm the strange one. To me, personally, I've never liked getting such compliments, although I've certainly always been polite about it and don't overreact or get too sensitive. It just makes me feel really uncomfortable. But maybe that's just me. I wouldn't care if hubby gave such compliments to others, but he generally doesn't. Because of his position, I think it makes him a little nervous about being misunderstood.
There is no one size fits all way to interact with people. Some guy compliments evernone, including you, and you might be the odd one out who feels uncomfortable. Go somewhere else and there's a guy who never compliments anyone, someone's gonna be upset that he's not very friendly.

Very true. There are some things where you just can't win. I feel sorry for a lot of men nowadays, not knowing how what they say will be taken and/or if they'll be "punished" for it.

Also, I think we need to learn to accept compliments more politely and graciously. I know I'm not great about it.

Dam straight. Dude can't even compliment a woman without her thinking he's trying to get her in the sack.

"That's a nice sweater."

"I have a boyfriend! Leave me alone, you creep!"

Eff you btches. Quit thinking that every guy who's nice to you is trying to get into your pants. Get over yourselves, you ain't all that.

Yanno, I could almost get on board with that if it did not come from a poster who calls himself an x-rated animal.
