    Gag Me.

    I've always hated compliments. Please, do not call me pretty, gorgeous, beautiful, or anything of that nature. It makes me want to gag, and then I feel the complete opposite of the compliment. I feel as though compliments are just unneeded. I've pissed a lot of people off because...

    I just hate it when people compliment me in any

    way; I don't believe them if they tell me I look nice because I'm so insecure about how I look- they must be blind or are just being nice to me!! The worst is getting told I have "nice eyes"; I have Trichotillomania which, if you don't know, is the urge to pull out hair- I've...

    Stop With All The Nice Comments!

    When I do something-I hate compliments. I hate it more than Harry hated Voldemort and I hate it more than I hate my younger sister. For example, an art project I did the other day was very mediocre in my eyes. The coloring was botched and the coloring was okay but it wasn't good...

    Compliments Are Unnecessary

    I dislike compliments with a passion and also seldom give compliments as well! My bf insists on giving them to me. I just don't know how to respond and I ask him to please stop complimenting me, he goes off on me! He says that he is trying to be nice and cheer me up and give me...

    It's not a hate like that- It's just I don't

    believe in compliments. It's just that I can't accept a compliment. I dot believe that compliments are necessary a bad thing but we just get a lot of compliments as kids and when we grow up and all the compliments are gone and we can't take the hurtful comment cuz we never...

    Uncomfortable Feeling

    It's interesting reading the experiences on here.  I met someone a few months ago and we have both fallen in love with each other.  The only problem is I get so many compliments, in person, email, online from this person that I don't know how to handle it.  I...

    Insincere Comments

    I hate compliments when they're definitely insincere. I can tell when their not sincere and I guess that's what a lot of people hate about me. The fact that I can pick up on almost anything. I'll tell you if I know it's fake or just not genuine, too. I don't like bursting people...

    It Makes It Worse

    Compliments just add to my insecurity and make me think everyone is lying. I hate the word sexy. I hate the word gorgeous. I hate the word hott. These words don't apply to me, and it annoys me when people try to cheer me up by calling me as such. I am me, I can be no one...

    I Hate Compliments

    I hate receiving compliments, although I have no problems giving them, and I'm outwardly gracious enough when I receive them.  Sometimes I do a little headshake, just the slightest movement that I don't think anyone can see, to deny the compliment to myself...
