I do not like it when a guy says i'm "beautiful" or "gorgeous". It is a total turn off. If a guy says that i think he is lying, or has no experience with a really beautiful girl. Beauty is only few. Some say beauty in eye of beholder, but I like guy with high standard. I just want a guy that accept me for who I am!. Im ordinary girl that maybe cute or pretty sometime ^_^ .. What is your opinion?

I think many women, myself included, have a difficult time accepting compliments. Part of it is that we're taught it's socially unacceptable to be overly confident and cocky about your appearance - it's kind of frowned upon to outwardly show you think you're pretty/beautiful. Which, to my mind, is just silly. Why shouldn't you appreciate your good qualities and be proud of them? (Not that it stops me from feeling weird about saying I think I look good or shying away from agreeing when someone says I look pretty). The other half is that we basically spend our entire lives trying to live up to the whole unattainable ideal of female beauty. The standards are so high almost no one can ever reach them and the real pisser is that on top of being unattainable, they change between cultures, regions, and over time. We never see ourselves as beautiful because we measure ourselves by those ridiculous standards no one ever meets. So, basically, women kind of suck at accepting compliments a lot of the time.
I recognize this, so I've tried to get better at it over the years. I still feel a bit uncomfortable about it, but if I feel like a guy is being sincere, then I say thanks and let him know I appreciate it. If he's just laying on the BS to get something he wants, I'll roll my eyes at him and let it go by.0
