So while talking to my cousin I tell her about this time i complemented this one girl. She then tells me how awkward guys complementing her makes her feel. I then find out that its not just her that thinks this, apparently her friends think the same.
My question for you girls is this though: How does a complement from a guy make you feel? Are we being kept in the dark on how we make you feel?
Also if its just a certain kind of complement please give an example of good and bad ones. Thanks this has been bugging me.
For me, a complIment doesn't do much for me unless it's about something I actually accomplished. If its about general looks, well I had nothing to do with that.
I think most women are weirded out by compliments about things that they were born with and had no control over, especially beauty...at least the women I know are. The only time I appreciate or respond well to compliments like this is if they come from someone I've been dating a long time and want to be known as attractive in their eyes.
It makes us feel like they're not genuinely about us I guess.
P.S. "Complement" = one of two mutually completed parts, as in "he complements my life"
"Compliment" = verbal expression of respect, affection, admiration, as in "I gave her a compliment"
