I Love Compliments

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,517 People

    Yes, I do. And if the first thing you say to

    me is "Hey sexy." I probably won't respond. That's not a compliment to me. That's like letting me know you're looking for sex.

    I have never been complimented in my house.

    .. I always receive criticisms. Some were from good friends.. Maybe some things we are craving to have is because we haven't experience it. I believe compliments are essential for our being and self-esteem.

    Idk they just boost my self esteem

    so much, I never got many compliments from anyone when I was younger so I tend to treasure the ones I get now :)

    I love receiving compliments from my family

    and friends on my full or slight attire that I am wearing. I love to dress appropriately and casually too. Also, I wear a bikini and high heels in the summer months and other months as well.

    I just received the best compliment I've ever

    gotten today by one of my good friends - I was feeling really down and what not, and he says: "If I could see you right now, I'd hug you for a month, kiss you for a year, and **** you for the rest of my life." not only did I think that was sweet, but it actually made me...

    Compliments Feel Amazing.

    Compliments feel amazing. They really raise one's self esteem, and can make one realize something good about themselves, and that others notice this goodness within the person. It was a typical day today, I went downstairs to the pool in my condo for a swim, and there were a few...

    I am addicted to being complimented.

    I have some underlying issues that prevent me from loving life like the norm. Fortunately for me I have good genes on both sides of my family and look pretty good for my age. People think I'm up to 10 years or more younger than I am, I act younger and love to have fun, I can be...

    I'm not often told that I'm pretty.

    I like myself, and if I dare to say it, I think that I'm aesthetically pleasing in the wideness of my eyes, the pinkness of my cheeks, the way that my mouth is always stretched into a smile of some sort. I'm told that when I feel passionate about something, that passion can be...

    I admit it. I am a total compliment hound.

    Not just here but in real life too. I am sure there's some psychological reason behind it (Isn't there always), but I can't get enough! My looks, my brains, my general personality - I get a compliment and I'm silly happy about it!

    I love getting compliments,

    but I'm horrible at accepting them. I have to debate them, to deflunk them. Like, someone said something to me today that touched me, it touched me deep inside and lit me up with pride and joy. "You are proof that there are angels among us. And I'm honored to have met one...

    I love having compliments made on my great

    lookjng attire when I am about to go out with family and/or with others. My husband, children, and my friends are very complimentary to me. Also, when I am naked and sunbathing at home, everyone there is very complimentary too.
