I saw on here a question about what it means when a guy says you look different, but it's kinda vague so... I just saw this guy (who's kind of a friend haha) that I've known for years. Sometimes he's nice, but other times he can be a real jerk. I haven't seen him in almost a year. He hugged me today and I don't think he ever has (if so, then maybe once or twice). And he tells me "You look different" and I say "Thanks?" And he says "In a good way"...Just wondering what that meant..Thanks!

I'd say it's bad. I've heard chicks say this before. For some reason, people use "different" as some type of jab.
Think about these two statements, and which would you prefer?
"You look different, in a good way."
"You look good."
One of them is a sort of "back-handed" compliment.0
