Compliment on looks for guys or girls? For guys, I think we mostly don’t notice other guys as far as looks... or we don’t care, maybe? Yes, there’s also the the gay context with some dudes, but I don’t think it’s that so much as just we don’t notice. Personally, I don’t compliment on looks much because it’s considered shallow, and most people I’ve known have been horrible about accepting compliments... usually it’s assumed that if I compliment a woman at all, I must want to immediately jump her bones and then suddenly I must be the creepy weirdo. Could be something as simple as, “Hey, you look amazing” or “I like those colors/that hairstyle (etc), on you.” It’s not like “Damn, baby, Shake it, Sugartits.” I’m treated though as if I did, so rather than get weird looks or eye rolls or sneered at, I just don’t bother with it much. The exception is that I do compliment anyone if it’s band or show or comic I love. But even then, most people don’t even seem to handle those well.
Guys will compliment each other’s clothing. But guys wear the same stuff/kind of stuff a lot and don’t have a huge variety in their wardrobe so you won’t need to say it often. Plus guys tend not to be as insecure as women. The guy only cares maybe 5% as much about his looks as the woman. Or if he does care he’d NEVER admit it
I think I assume guys don’t like it when you compliment them on their looks. My last boyfriend hated the fact that physical attraction factored into my desire to date him. It’s like winning a race but not caring because you parents bribed the judges and you know you don’t deserve it. If I compliment a woman it’s not to show her I respect her for how she looks unless she puts effort into it and isn’t naturally beautiful, it’s to reaffirm her belief that she is well received and liked by others so that she can have more confidence and self-esteem.
I have always wondered the same thing. I have always thought that it’s because guys don’t want to be perceived as “gay” if they compliment a guy, or they simply don’t want to give credit to another guy. I really want to know what answers you get from this. 😄
Have an opinion?
Because men and women are different. We need the reassurance. We tend to overthink a lot so that's why we need it more. Since as women we understand this, we naturally do it. Plus, it's nice to play compliments to people. Makes the other person feel good about themselves. We should all do it more!
Because women focus more on they appearance, and make each other feel at least when they compliment the appearance first.. Men don't do it because well although many men do care about our appearance it's not the first thing we will focus on.. Also women are more judgey than men, so that is also a reason..
Because men are not gay. I barely even notice how men look other than to differentiate Mark from Tom. I pay more attention to their virtues and who they are as a person dgaf what outfit they are wearing unless its really nice like a suit when they normally dont dress up.
I am a well-groomed woman, meaning I get my nails done, hair blown out, and I work out. My friends are similar, so I might compliment a friend out her hair looks glossy or if her arms are looking great. But then again, we enjoy the same things, so it’s sort of a conversation topic for us.
I think its a couple of thingsFirstly both men and women find women better looking in general so its easier to compliment a woman on her appearance.Men also dont wanna seem 'gay' and give other men compliments unless they got a haircut or is wearing something coolI have However gotten many compliments from heterosexual men that I've never met before on how good looking i am lol
Because girls are always insecure and need a boost while guys usually don't compliment unless it's out of the ordinary and guys wear ordinary stuff. I don't usually dress nice so when I do guys give me compliments or if I get a fresh cut but never on "oh you look sharp" on something I do every day like girls do with their dresses or how they do their hair
Because we hate it when our friends are sad or insecure. I want them to know how special and beautiful they are
Yeah guy don't really care about each others looks. If anything we call each others ugly or stupid for fun.But if a bro does show up all shining we do not hesitate in giving him a three syllables DAMN!
I don't know despite being a girl. It actually makes me feel slightly awkward. That or I don't feel anything. I don't really give people compliments either.This is going to make me look like a terrible person. 😂
Its one of those that's just how it is kinda questions, and your answer is pretty spot on.
Because women are more social creatures with a greater need for peer validation. And unless there is a woman we like around we don't give a fuck how we look, at least all the guys I know.
I’ve never heard a guy physically compliment another guy in my entire life
Girls like to boost each other up and acknowledge each other's beauty, as women that's something we should all be doing for each other. Guy's they don't do it that much, unless it' maybe about a haircut, shoes, a car, or cool shirt they are wearing. The most compliments my fiancee gets from guys is when he's wearing a band tee shirt they like but that's about it. Plus women look at each other hair and fashion choices, if we something they like we compliment. I do it all the time, if i see a girl wearing some cute shoes, I'm going to compliment them.
Because they want compliments back. I don't need that shit.
"nice pecks bro!" Aw bro thanks... Na for real I agree... Bro
Most men are in constant competition with each-other even when close friends.
Because that is their value structure.It's the same reason guys get complemented on their work.
That and if you tell your bro his ass looks hot your never going to hear the. End of it
They'll use whatever if it'll work to feel comfortable and good even if it's a lie or fake.
We care about our looks but we don't go around talking about it to all of our friends.
We tend to be superficial with other girls. 💜💙💚
I haven't idea
No idea I think your right but I don't know
I think it’s a social thing plus gender roles. Females being “vulnerable” or talking about their feelings is more acceptable, whereas if guys compliment each other, a lot of times they get called names. I don’t think girls care more about their looks, guys also care, it’s just not what we were taught. Tho I feel really awkward when someone compliments me.
I complimented another man on his wife looks once.Then he told her to never speak to me.
Girls will never compliment another girl they think is more attractive than them, they’re jealous (threatened by them)If you look at a girls because Instagram they’ll comment on post of their friends they think aren’t as attractive as them, but won’t comment on their friends that’s more attractive than them, Have a look yourself now social media, I’ve been picking up on this for he past few months,
Men aren't that insecure.
because it's important to them and they know it boosts their self esteem.
