Why would a guy would get offended over not taking a compliment?

The general story is that this guy I like gave me a compliment and I took it the wrong way. He told me I was “tiny” or “small” and I did not realize that was a compliment so I joked around and said that I was not tiny because I thought he was just referring to my height. He got pretty defensive and explained himself further and he would not drop it, he kept talking about it to himself I think since I was not talking to him. Why would a guy get so mad/defensive if a woman does not take his compliment they way he intended? Thanks!
