    You guys don't know the power of your words

    or how it can really affect someone's mood (: I love receiving & giving... Giving more bc I love to see people smile or make them happy about themselves. Bc you never know what it can do for them, it can be a real confidence booster!

    Someone just called me a "good guy".

    It feels great to be in that category.

    Though I'm really awkward about them.

    .. I get more compliments regards my persona than my beauty and I think that's a nice thing? :/ But I'm not attached to people's opinions. I'll appreciate what you say or think... But then I'm so awkward at giving compliments it's so terrible! Le example! Person: You look...

    Like any other person out there,

    being told compliments is like warming you up more for the day. I admit I do get compliments here and there, but I still don't know how to say thank you that won't allow me to sound full of myself and in between rude.

    I don't get complimented often

    so when I do it feels nice :) Idk it is a small boost to my esteem to know that people like things about me.

    Of course I do! Compliments can be about

    anything - my personality, my body, my way of cooking, my work, etc. I like getting all sorts of compliments - they can be made of words of course, which is the most common, but a compliment can be a look, a wink, a gesture, or any type of body language, they can also be made of...

    One of the things I've learned

    as I've aged is how to take a compliment. It wasn't until my 30's that I realized how unattractive it is to lack self confidence. Now, I smile and say thank you. It doesn't matter what I think about myself. The compliment comes from someone who DOES believe it. That is all that...

    I had my first track meet yesterday

    and I'm pretty sure I had at least 20-30 people give me compliments and it made me feel SO great... I got compliments such as, you're really pretty, I LOVE your hair, your skin tone is so perfect, I love your smile, you're beautiful, you're so tiny and cute, you were really...

    I'm happily married but don't mind being

    complimented on by men in general; it helps boost the self-esteem a little and let's me know that I've 'still got it'.

    It's Nice

    I thing getting compliments are nice. They are a good ego boost, and at times I really need to hear something nice to make me feel better. I'm not always sure how to accept compliments, so I just smile and thank the person and usually give them a compliment back most of the...

    I give compliments all the time to people

    that I think deserve them. Everyday I compliment my gf about something. She almost never compliments me willing. I always have to infer what she says as compliment.

    People Who Say They Don't Are Lying.

    There’s a difference between liking compliments and not knowing how to take a compliment. Everyone enjoys to be complimented, whether you believe that or not. It’s human nature. And, I’ll claim guilty at saying I dislike being complimented, but, of course, that’s a lie...

    Whenever someone compliments me,

    or my car, or my work ethic, etc. I make an obvious huge smile that I can't control. 😅
