@canidmajor – They wrote this for you !

It makes me instantly suspicious…

elbanditoroso's avatar

I know I am not good looking. So if someone says “Hey Good Looking” to me, either they are lying, or they want something from me, or both.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@kritiper – Nothin’ wrong with that

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@elbanditoroso – Never rule out other options ! Gosh!

Yes. Compliment my appearance or my intelligence and I’m putty in your hands. :)

Do you often say that word?

ucme's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille You did & yeah, kinda.

@ucme You lookin’ sexxxy as a Secret Santa

KNOWITALL's avatar

Sometimes, depends on who and the context.

Like @kritiper, I also get a tad suspicious, or take a double-take at who’s saying things like that.

I’m pretty good at identifying bullchit but sure, I enjoy being flattered like everyone else.

chyna's avatar

Since my best feature is my feet <blushes at complimenting myself > if someone compliments my feet, I know it’s sincere. If they compliment anything else, I don’t believe them.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@chyna -You’re sweet
sing along with that at work….in his voice XD

canidmajor's avatar

Nonsense, @chyna, I have met you in person, you’re totes adorbs !!!

chyna's avatar

Aww, thank you @canidmajor.

LuckyGuy's avatar

It’s not flattery if it’s fact!

ucme's avatar

@SEKA Aren’t I just, the secret is, what am I wearing below that shot? :D

ucme's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille I had to dash out earlier & feel your response deserves a better reply.
I am impressed you knew of nowt & got the meaning too.
It’s a word used all the time here in the north, scotland too I believe & I use it frequently, although not so much here because my grammar would be modded probably.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@ucme -With a little bit o’ bloomin’ luck they won’t.

ucme's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille I like my bread wi nowt tekken owt!
Those trousers you linked to @SEKA look like what my grandma put the teapot on…outstanding fashion statement!

cookieman's avatar

Not at all. I either don’t hear it or assume they just want something from me.

I know. My mother fucked me up.

cookieman's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille: Nah. It’s entirely my fault.

@chyna: Your feet you say. Hubba.

Only when someone else tells me that someone else complimented my cooking, or really enjoyed my company, or thought I was clever or interesting. I feel awkward when someone compliments me in person. Some people are just too easy with their flattery and flatter everyone, and the motive is usually to be liked or fish for compliments, and so its not sincere. And some people rarely flatter but can make it feel awkward. Especially if you feel it wasn’t worthy of a compliment. Like at thanksgiving I met some new friends of my daughter. She said they really like my husband and myself and kept going on and on about different things they likes about us. We had fun joking around and even touched on some sensitive subjects, like faith. What it really came down too was how different we were from his family but they liked that we are open minded. It seems his folks are the kind to not like their ideas challenged. So I liked that.
But had they said it to my face, I may have felt slightly uncomfortable. Compliments always make me feel like I was under a microscope.

@Pandora -You must have made a great impression on them :)

Pandora's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille Are you trying to flatter me? LOL His parents are Mormon and he is no longer Mormon. Apparently family feels his marriage to an outsider is a stain and an insult to their family and faith.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Pandora -That has to be tough.

josie's avatar

Maybe…

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@josie testing,testing,testing

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Pandora I’d like to hear more about that sometime. Religion interests me.

Pandora's avatar
