I have to give her points. That is an original compliment I have not heard before.

As an added fun thing, my mother was present, and without missing a beat she said, ‘Thanks! I made that!’

Good job, Mom. That is some top-notch wingman-ing.”

She just laughed for about 10 seconds and said ‘Don’t worry, it was cute.'”


9. Watch Me

“‘I fuckin’ love the way you eat!’

Oh. Ok, well.. I’ll just finish this sweet and sour pork and you can uh, watch me.

She just laughed for about 10 seconds and said ‘Don’t worry, it was cute.'”

“A girlfriend once told me I have a nice back. I have yet to see it, but I bet it’s impressive.”

“Second day of my freshman year in high school. I’m in my Introduction to Information Technology class. Teacher is calling role, gets to me name, I say “present” cause ‘here’ is overrated. Kid in front of me whips around, looks at me and says ‘Dude… Your voice sounds like the kind of voice I would hear if I called a number to get my computer fixed.’ I took that as a compliment. Guy never talked to me again after that. It was weird.”


17. At The Office

“Since you started working here, this office has smelled really nice.

By my boss’ boss.

20. The Most Dangerous Game

“‘You would be very difficult to kill. I couldn’t overpower you, you are paranoid about poison, and you can get out of any knot.’ Coming from my best friend. It wasn’t out of the blue, we were brainstorming ways to kill each other. As, you know, hypothetical created by boredom.”


21. Sexy Ears

“You’re selfish and a bit of a dick, but like in a really not actually selfish way.”


28. Well, she does

“You chew your gum like you own it.”


29. It’s Like Hearing An Author Describe You

“‘You have a really nice speaking voice, soothing, like you should be on the radio.’ Then they just made me talk at length so they could listen.

I have received this one more than once and I realized that sometimes the best compliments don’t pad your ego/vanity, but instead they show you something only other people can perceive.

It’s refreshing to hear these compliments, like hearing the words an author would write to describe a character, but about your own traits.”

I like it when people notice I have green eyes.”
