    This Made My Day :)

    I was walking in a baby store with Addy in my arms, and was looking at cribs. A clerk about, forty or fifty came up and asked if I needed any help. Him: Hello, there. Can I help you? Me: Hi, well I'm trying to find a cheap crib, I have a tight buget. Him: (gets teary eyed) Come...

    I Like Complimenting Others And Some Days It Comes Back

    One day last week a girl in the elevator with me was wearing some great shoes, so I said, "Hey, those are great shoes."  The next day she said hi in the coffee line-up and we started talking. So I told someone else I liked her necklace and she told me her daughter...

    Back in 2008 when I lived in New York me, my sister and our friend went to a store to go shopping. It was a sunny windy day. I didn't feel pretty or comfortable at all. I just felt so dull, irritated and dry all the same time because my hair is all over the place. The sun is hot...

    It Was Nice:)

    Around 8 in the morning, I was waiting for the bus to take me to work and feeling like crap (just because). Traffic was slow, and then some guy yells out his car window, "You have really nice eyes". Totally caught me off guard :)

    Unexpected Compliment

    I was buying lunch at the store today. I'd been feeling sort of gloomy all day so far, and the day didn't show any signs of getting better. The cashier, out of the blue, just said "You look nice today" It isn't much of a compliment, I know, but it brightened up the...

    The city I live in is friendly,

    full of bars, full of cafes (with good coffee :P), and above all full of foreigners.It seems that for every new local I meet, I at least meet one european and one canadian :PSo getting compliments or conversations from complete strangers is actually not that unsual, and on top...

    I'm a guy, but I love when people give me compliments. I rarely get them so when a girl says I'm cute or good looking, I'm automatically in a better mood.
