Not to pop your bubble here, but “you’re so sweet” when I say it almost ALWAYS is addressed to a guy who likes me, but I ONLY like him as a friend…and sometimes not even that. Not that he isn’t sweet! But overly sugary gets on my nerves.
I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I’ve used that line as a response to an “I love you” from guys I didn’t like before :X it basically means “You’re a nice guy, but not my type…and I definitely don’t want to say ‘I love you’ back!” Or even if he just complimented me, and I couldn’t think of anything else to say! I also use the word “sweet” as the only compliment I can think of for a guy who isn’t very masculine…sad, but sometimes that’s the only good quality they have.
Ok I would like to qualify all this depressing stuff I just wrote by saying that it really depends on HOW they say it. If it’s a kind of half-hearted….”ummm…….you’re so sweet.*looks in the other direction in a bored way*” then you’re probably out of luck. However, if she sounds genuine and that’s not the ONLY thing she says she likes about you, then just take it at face value and enjoy it!
Best of luck
