Can you take a compliment?
Posted 8/23/13
I don't like it when people compliment my looks, when they use the word "handsome" or "you have beautiful eyes"... I just feel a little uncomfortable, I don't know why. It's like I don't agree with it, because what I consider beautiful is totally different to my own features...

I also don't like it when people say I'm good at maths, as I don't like that subject. I don't like the fact that I'm associated with maths by default just because I am Asian.


Other than that, I do love compliments about my artwork/stories, or anything.

I honestly hate getting compliments because I don't agree with them most of the time. I have low self-esteem, so I just think they're crazy for saying such nice things. I either think they're lying or pitying me. I guess everyone has opinions, but still.

it's real annoying, because then i get scolded for not being able to accept compliments
and a lot of time i just think... 'what makes YOU qualified to make these judgments?" or i just assume/think they're lying and have some ulterior motive.

I'm with some of the people here... I tend to freeze up when someone compliments me. I try and think of what I was doing right and how I can keep doing that. That's why I'm just an asshole to everyone instead

It used to bother me when I had lower self-esteem. I know that sounds weird, but it bothered me because compliments can brings you into the spotlight. It doesn't bother me anymore but it doesn't make me feel good or bad. I take most compliments with a grain of salt depending on how much admiration I have for the person.


This. ^

Actually, the hardest area in compliment-accepting that I have would be the sparse amount of poetry I write here and there, or my piano playing. :3 Anything else, let the praises rain. It makes me feel good, of course, but you do need to always take it with a grain of salt. I'm good at reading into people, so... Yeah

Typically, I do more of the complimenting. Mostly to my female friends, though, in a jokingly flirty sort of way just to tease them.

It seems like that's just a problem with the newer generation of girls. I don't know... It's weird. I'll make compliments, but they'll know if I'm just teasing them or not to be silly. But even when I make a sincere one, girls just don't accept it. None of them. Not a single one of my girlfriends that I've had, not classmates... I don't know. Society has slipped a little.

well i hate getting compliments, because i give them a lot, but i dont expect or want them back, but when i do, i feel like they are JUST saying it to say it, and that bothers me.
Posted 8/27/13
I'm not necessarily polite, but I've been told I am.
I get told that I'm pretty and beautiful everyday, but I don't think so.
I'm told I'm a hard worker, but not really.
I guess I'm being more rude by not taking the compliment...

I'm not good with getting compliments on anything, I always feel awkward and think it's undeserved. Probably roots to me just having a much lower opinion of myself, I can usually agree with insults but compliments feel like the person is just trying to be nice and lying/exaggerating.
