  • How do you react to compliments?

    It can be a compliment from anyone but mostly from the opposite sex. Do you like the flattery? Do you say Thank you? Do you just smile? Do you say nothing?

    I've done a my fair share of compliments to guys. Some say Thank you, some not, or some just get caught off guard and don't know what to say.

    You?

      I usually reply "I know" and walk away.

        I giggle and blush and attempt to say thanks.

            Not well.
            People don't compliment me often.

              I sometimes get embarassed. It actually depends on the compliment. Face to face compliments would most likely embarass me more. I am shy, by nature. Sometimes, we get caught off guard, and thank you isn't our first reaction.

                        I say thank you...if I know the person well, I will sometimes joke back if I don't agree...

                          Smile and say thank you. It the compliment is a good segway to a new conversation, feel free to add something (i.e., "that's a great car" "Thank you. I spent 350 hours restoring it."), but if it is about something physical ("you have a beautiful smile") or if you don't want to talk it up, just smile and say thank you and you're done.

                            That's freaky. Sounds like she was being sarcastic? I would have said Thank you too even with the glare.

                              I don't know if this was aimed at everyone....but, I haven't learned how to take it. I guess I don't believe them. Where I work I get quite a few compliments. One guy who used to work there, commented on my legs all the time, one guy stared at my bottom endlessly, the new guy always says how beautiful I am.....and we have one guest that has been there FOREVER who only calls me "pretty girl". And then, every now and then, you have someone say something or ask for a phone number. I just laugh it off.....I don't really believe them. Esp. the guys I work with. I think they are just picking on me, cause I am married. I just find it hard to believe...I'm shy and don't really have that great of a self esteem.....I just laugh it off.
