men are always saying you look hot etc..because we're thinking about sex when we do but women when they say something are always saying like "cute shirt, where did you get it" because they're trying to copy you or whatever...both are equally flattering, but do you take one gender more seriously?
i guess the same goes for men too? but men don't usually compliment other men

Because men say things to get something, while when women give you compliments (they can be honest or not, but it's pretty easy to tell) they're actually helpful (i.e., that's a really nice color on you, accentuates your eyes - a helpful, constructive compliment).
As opposed to a guy's compliment: those pants make your ass look like '...damn, girl!'... o.O0
