yeah kinda awkward, like those abs part.. if you compliment someone of their looks like.. "dude, you're cute blah blah balh" people will get the impression that you liked the guy..

in my case if i admire some other guy, like i think he's cool and all and i look up for him, it's just up to that extent.. no inner feelings or something.

Haha I feel like women only compliment other girls because they know what others WANT to hear. Not that it's true of course but girls use so much flattery to so many different people, when you tell somebody they look cute it's like saying you look like everybody and their mom.

As for guys, I'm a little bit more honest so I don't compliment much... I won't hesitate to tell another guy they're stupid or they look fat (Don't call a girl fat they'd go overboard when they try to fix their weight problems), lol it's not like we haven't heard it before... why would we care what others have to say, When I compliment another guy they actually believe me because I rarely hand out compliments.

Their are some guys whose egos you definately don't want to feed either so we don't throw compliments out like candy.

Just don't sound gay or people are going to get the wrong idea.

i was once part of a conversation in which two young men happily paid one another compliments, but it was all done with a touch of humour. It's a shame men dont compliment one another more often... it might be just the thing for some.
you know this thread makes me think of the flight of the concords song "Bret you've got it going on" if you've not heard it then give it a go, it will make you laugh and it really is quite relevant.

in my opinion men complimenting other males will be a total gayness... just imagine two men talking to each other "hey dude you've got some nice biceps can i touch?" eiw.

Its okay for a guy to compliment eachother.
Its just they use different words to describe it.

Girls : cute, pretty, sexy (if you're close enough to the friend, in a friend way )

boys : cool, sick, awesome, dope, fly.

yeah. haha

there is no reason why they can't... it's just guys should be careful of how they say thing so it doesn't come out gay >.>

You can tell your friend he is good looking. Just don't say it so seriously.

I agree with you. I can only ever compliment guys on what they are wearing and that's it

I think it depends on how you say it. When Guy 1 "compliments" Guy 2, -if Guy 1 actually isn't gay-, it's probably because the Guy 1 thinks Guy 2 has something cool. If Guy 1 actually is gay, then Guy 2 -if Guy 2 isn't gay- could either take the compliment or run away. Quickly.

Ooh, example. I met a guy once who was wearing a Bleach shirt, and I thought it was cool. If it was a girl I'd say "hey, that's a nice shirt" (and we'd probably go into a little discussion about who our favorite captains are), but I asked the guy "Hey, where'd you get that shirt?", and that was that. I now own one of my own. Lol.

So yeh....if I see someone in public wearing any sort of Bleach apparel, I will compliment their stuff. I've done it many times while I was at work...to complete strangers. I saw this one girl with a bag and we started talking about conventions......

With that said, I wish there were prettier girls who liked anime around here. I'd have no trouble getting in their pants, not that I do anyway.....

.....I completely forgot what this post was about....

Guys compliment other guys, just not not the "OMG THAT LOOKS SO CUTE ON YOU" (I'd add the high pitch scream that sounds like your being brutally murdered but I can't spell it XD) We just use different words

Me and one of my closest guy friends were talking about compliments and stuff.

A lot of the time females can tell another female she's pretty or cute or whatever and leave it at that, you know, like a compliment, but what about the guys? Do you guys compliment other guys? Why do a lot of people think it's gay for a guy to compliment another guy?


Psychologically speaking, many men are uncomfortable with one another when they’ve had a bad relationship with their father. This being said, America is the fatherless nation. Dad’s are largely absent and most of those who aren’t…well, they’re not exactly doing a great job.

However, men compliment each other all the time. They, however, often have a different (usually circuitous) method of doing this. One example would be that one man can compliment another man by talking about the latter’s girlfriend or car. For example:

Man A: “This is a picture of my girlfriend,”

Man B: “Dang! She’s a complete babe! I wish I could get a girl like that!”

In the social structure of macho men, that’s like saying, “You’re a stud, you’re sexy, and you’re great with women.” Except, it doesn’t seem like a come on… O_O

I don’t think it’s gay to compliment other guys. Me and my friends compliment one-another all the time.
