  • "I'm aware some people dislike it because they doubt it."

    Yup. We can sense bullshit from a distance. It's rare to see an honest compliment, that isn't:
    1) fake
    2) ass kissing
    3) pity

    It's good when someone recognises our work though.. Happened to me once this week, and I can say I haven't received such an honest compliment for a long time now.

  • It depends. In my experience it usually precedes a request for help.

  • I said it can make my day, but it also depends on how secure I feel cause I might think they are just saying it and don't mean it.

    • I do get them regularly.

    • Show All
    • Yes, I have my reasons:

      1. First I know that there is very little chance that the compliments are genuine. In fact many times I doubt if they are compliments also are not. Hence I can never believe them.

      2. I actually get annoyed when someone compliments me, i't like they are not serious seems like a tease to me and so I don't appreciate that.

      3. When people tell something good about me, or compliment me it seems like it's impulsive on their end, like they are not complimenting me after understanding me, it's like they are complimenting me for the sake of it and that's what I think is true in most cases.

      4. In most cases I think they are just lying about it. It could be white lies on their end. I don't know but there is this doubt and so I never enjoy receiving compliments.

      cont...

    • cont..

      Yes, I am confident in my own ways and I do believe in myself but still I can never believe when people compliment me, I never enjoy their compliments. It actually annoys me. When people do compliment me I just don't say anything. I just ignore their words, I don't react, I don't do anything. After a while I'll walk away from there.

      Whatever I said that is the truth. I want to thank you for asking this, because many people they just assume something but you didn't and you actually asked me what are my reasons.

      Thanks for that.

  • Men rarely get compliments, so when I get one I relish it. :)
