Has anybody on here ever had a time where they saw a girl or guy that looked really good on a certain day, but you didn't wanna say "hey, you look pretty/cute today" because you were afraid they would view you differently and might avoid you?
I know this girl in the Marching band who looked extremely pretty and wanted to somehow tell her, but I was afraid that if I did, she would think differently about me and avoid me after that, so I didn't tell her.
Has anybody else ever dealt with this? This is open to both guys and girls. I'm just curious.
Do you have a crush on this girl? Is that why a guy would compliment a girl because he is attracted to her?
This guy I know. He compliments me. When I walk by him he is like, hey gorgeous. Once when I was joking around with him even heard him mumble beautiful when I was walking off. I had a big crush on him so that made my day!
Just was not sure if he was just being friendly or not though, regardless it still made me feel good and all he got was a smile in return.
Another time I had a crush on someone in the past and complimented them on their new hair cut. I could he got a good ego boost out of that to and that made me feel good!
There is no harm doing it. But I mainly only compliment people I am attracted to. :-). Is this the same for guys?
Yes but I held back because I didn't want the guy to think that I like him. But I would say that to a friend or mutual friend about it
Yes, I've wanted to compliment people before, but didn't. It was mainly because I didn't want them assuming anything based on the compliment, other times it's just because I didn't want them knowing that I thought that about them. It's very difficult for me to tell people how I feel about them or what they mean to me, etc.
There's a girl I'm seriously crushing on big time, and I just don't have the balls to say it. Especially since I'm not much of a talker and can't hold up a good conversation; not with a stranger at least, despite I really really want to get to know her.
And even with girls I couldn't care less about, even thought they are very attractive, I just can't say anything about their appearance - it's somehow ingrained in me that it's a very sexist thing to do. Completely irrational thinking, but sadly that's the way it is.
In the back of my mind I always keep thinking about a video I saw where a guy runs to a woman on the street, stops her and says to her something like "Sorry, but I have to tell you something; you look very lovely. Have a nice day." ...and walks away. Man, I wish I could be like that (even though the video was staged - didn't seem like that - I still wish I could do that)
You just gotta be a pimp about it. If you see something you like, say so. If you feel a girl is lookin' mighty fine and you really want her to know it, tell her. Who the f*** cares what she thinks in return. All that matters is that you see a fine piece of woman and you feel she deserves to know it. Now you're a pimp AND a gentleman.
