Have an opinion?
I give compliments to everyone. I receive compliments about my hair and my beard a lot.
We don't compliment each other often because we don't care how other guys look or act.
It depends. It does not always happen. Guys tend to have a little more pride sometimes. It can be harder to get a compliment from certain guys. But I will say it depends on the guy. Some guys are quick to give you a complement but some guys are like farmer jon, your dad that only gives you one complement a month and only when you have earned it! But compliments we receive are not as mysterious as you might think I assume they are pretty close to yours. The best way to understand this is to remember the compliments you dad gave you as a kid to now, that gets pretty close. Good work on your grades, I am proud of you son/daughter, and thanks for cleaning up the house. Then there are gender specific stuff, like man you really got the perfect girl, good job, or after hearing how you landed a girl (and slept with her, not my thing), good job man congratulations. another fun thing we do is compare wounds or scars and escalate each one it's of a challenge than a compliment though. You really want to blow this thing wide open? Watch movies and tv shows! That are pretty honest most of the time and that can give you an idea of how we interact with each other.
We tend to insult each other, or cause each other physical pain, as well as doing other fairly terrible shit to our male friends, oddly enough there is an inverse correlation between how close two men are and how terribly they treat each other. As a girl, you are probably wondering, why do we insult, hurt, and generally do terribly fucked-up things to our male friends? There's a couple reasons:1. Showing traditional forms of affection at all is generally difficult for men, and such displays of affection towards another man is considered weakness. (Don't know why really, just how it is.)2. It's also a way to establish dominance (which is an unspoken but important faucet of male friendships) and vent aggression, which builds up due to our bodies natural testosterone production.(which is also why guys will play-fight, wrestle, or 'rough-house' as mama used to say.)3. Guys are psychologically hardwired to be competitive. Seriously guys will turn anything, and I do mean absolutely anything and everything into a competition.(it's why watching and playing sports is a common male stereotype.)
Guys don't compliment each other. We tear each other down so we continue to build ourselves up. Like tearing down a weak house and having a strong support put in to replace it. Some guys are too weak and cave in, like a house that would collapse without that weak support. But if they can take it, the house will only get stronger.Think of it like working out: No pain no gain. And its unconscious, we don't do it unless we really are impressed. I make a mean french toast and nobody ever says anything. Not like I care.
Well if guy's compliment it's less likely on another dude's looks, but I've seen dudes be like "dude you're jacked" or something in regard to say how one is in good shape. Straight guys if complimenting another's body, will more often mention the physique like overall, but less likely specifically for a body part. I've saif it before in that sense and have been told I look cut before by a friend who is a a guy
It's mostly a girl thing but sometimes complimenting girls becomes exhausting when the compliment ends with them reciprocating it with another and behold you have this endless loop of appreciation lol. With guys, it's simply whether you or they compliment it usually ends with a thank you.
Some do and some don't. Those that aren't as... confident with their sexuality or those that are worried about the opinions of others may stray away from them though. If I compliment a guy, It's usually how well he's dressed or his capabilities at a certain task. Etc. It really depends though.
I'm seeing a lot of "no's" down below and I'm confused by that. I'm always complimenting my friends, though I guess its never like "nice shirt!" its more like "you killed it with that beer receipe" i guess its the things they do that i praise, not who they are or what they look like
Sometimes but not often. Men aren't as reliant on approval from other men. It seems like women have a social culture where they need approval from other women to feel beautiful but men don't need approval from other men to feel their best. The only person we need approval from that's a man is our father and that's about it.
Men complement men they admire not just any man. And a man's respect is hard to earn.
I do around my friends, but most people wouldn't recognize it as a complimentOnr of them is (I come from Australia, so imagine this in an Aussie accent)OI! jackass! Keep doing what you doing ya mad cu**! Might be able to get a root one day if ya keep going!
Girls are used to it, they paint each other's nails and braid their hair so they look pretty but for a guy to do this and regardless of what you hear, suggests there are some gay thoughts going on there. Men do not look at men like this.
Not really it happen occasionally. Like if a friend lost a bunch of weight we might say looking good bro, but it pretty limited circumstances that we do things like this. But we usually give each other shit, that's our way of saying. You're a cool guy. lol
when women compliment one another:"Wow sweetie, you look SO gorgeous in that dress."she turns her back and the complimenter gossips to her friend:"she has SO gained a few pounds lately right? what a cow, she wants to wear designer clothes too."men dont compliment much but they are not hypocritical backstabbers to that degree at least.
You know, not every woman is like that
@marijajr sure. we are talking majorities in the society. not every man is a football watching chad either. still its 80% of manhood though.
I compliment my guy friends on their clothing, hairstyle, beard, hats, shoes backpacks, etc. & I've been told I look like I've been losing weight. I've also been told how nice I was, (& HEAVILY THANKED) for talking to a guy friend when no one else would because he's screwed everyone over EXCEPT me.
Guys rarely compliment each other the way women do, the most compliments are going to be not there looks, but things like, "nice car" or "good job on fixing up the house", or " nice dog", but never anything like, nice hair, or nice jeans, or you look good today, never anything like that...
Depends on what I'd be commenting on. Most of the recent compliments I can remember giving have been along the lines of saying a particular haircut or article of clothing suits someone well. Guys definitely compliment each other, some are just afraid to admit it.
We don't. You know why? Because we don't lie to eachothers. How many times we see pictures of ugly girls on facebook and all the comments are like "You are so beatyfull". Also, we don't give a damn about the outfit of the others. We only compliment the toys or girlfriends of eachothers. "Nice car", "Wow ! Xbox one X !". Nothing more.
@InTimoreDei eh. I’ll do “cool shirt” once in a great while if I think it’s hilarious... or something (usually geeky). But yeah, pretty much toys or car. I did have a friend tell me that he chooses people to hang out with that aren’t jerks or morons. And he introduced me as “Dave - He’s not an asshat like so many people I know.” That was a major compliment. 😆
I do compliment my friends at times, but usually something about their outfit or shoes. Etc. Mostly we just call each other assholes, faggots, etc. But of course without meaning it. Just in a joking way
Girl 1: "You're so pretty."Girl 2: "Oh thanks. You too."Guy 1: "Dude, you're handsome."Guy 2: "Are you gay?"
They compliment each other. But not the way girls do. Guys say “hey man nice abs - NO HOMO”. It’s fucking ridiculous 😂
This xD always ~no homo~ whenever they say something that could be considered flirty/compliment etc.
It’s cringey af and pathetic
Yeah agreed, sometimes they take it a bit far. I don't know why some men are so afraid to be considered homo. I mean that has something to do with their own confidence. If you know you're no homo, then why put emphasis on it. Boys will be boys.
I think it mainly has to do with the whole sexist concept, you know like anything feminine is considered weak. And supposedly men have to run away from weakness etc. But it’s dumb because we as humans have a weakness. But people believe that because he has two balls and a dick, he’s iron man and should behave as such.
I am more handsome all of them
Never, in my 32 years have I personally heard a guy compliment another guy. Not in school when I was on the wrestling and football team, not in the military, not anywhere ever.
Guys mostly make fun of one another in a lovingly joking way. If we compliment, it's usually regarding to clothes or belongings. I get "dude, nice shirt" a lot when I go out wearing fancy clothes.
I've been complimented on many things before by guys-my shoes, jacket, smile, biceps, my work ethic. Everyone appreciates good style and positive attributes.
Usually only if they are friends but I have been told things like "cool shirt" "awesome hat" girls are just do different they can even compliment each other's beauty or even call the other girl hot lol
I call my friends names all the time. Basically it really means the opposite of what the insult is.
Guys have a funny way of bonding, we are often insulting each other but it's like when an old time black smith whould work metal. Strong swords (men) are made with fire and steel sharpens steel
Of fucking course men do, lol. Do you really think nearly half the world's population doesn't complement each other?And compliments will vary from person to person.
Guys insult each other but don't mean it. Girls compliment each other but don't mean it. Guys compliment each other and mean it. Girls insult each other and mean it.
Guys compliment each other too. Not in all the the same ways girls compliment each other, but yes. lol And probably typically less often than girls, but I don't know why not.
I think it's more of a girl thing to do it so often, but I've seen guys compliment each other on haircuts, shoes, talents, etc.
Yes but we got to do it with a sense of humor and /or sparingly. If we do it too often or not in the right way people will expect we’re homo. This is just another bullshit gender double standard. Women can literally compliment each other to the point of being a lesbian infatuation but still not be gay. They won’t lose face. Guys on the other will automatically get their sexuality questioned if they are not careful here by both men AND fucking women.
Not really, we might compliment each other on our outfits or shoes if we notice something new
lol yea we do for sure , it doesn't motivate me much but my friends find that like big motivation if i say them you look jacked keep it going or something like that, and yea we compliment each other often
If you're referring to complimenting each other's looks, it's mostly buff guys who do that. But they do it in a rather obsessive way that seems latently homoerotic.
Looks like we have some closeted buff guys here. ;)
That is only a girl thing. however, the low iq body builder types, I am sure, stroke each other off by saying things like "you look jacked dude"...
Of course we do but we have to be more discreet about it like "Dude! Gray hair makes you look less gay" or "You actually do have muscles other than in your head"
Guys face pretty harsh criticism if they compliment other guys, or do so in anything but the most casual way possible. Look no further than the response from our very own @Pamina for an example of why.It's easy to say this is a guy problem, but ultimately it is more women who drive it, directly or indirectly.
Guys insults each other that’s how they compliment each other
Every now and then. Most guys don't do it nearly as often. It's a cultural thing
I think so, my hubby and his friends do to each other about certain things.
Guys compliment each other, but not necessarily as much as girls do.
Yes, but it's not too often. Guys do receive compliments from other guys who are genuine. It is more often a case when guys get jealous from each other.
I would if i didn't get called gay everytime i did it xD
Yes but it's much simpler I get compliments like "looking fresh" or "nice shirt"
Not really. I maybe tell him that he lost some muscles to motivate him to workout. That's all
Occasionally, and when they do, it's genuine and to the point.
so you post up a picture of a bunch of hot guys and ask do guys compliment each other of course we do hot or notmen are just kindwomen on the other hand are ugh
It's the website that adds that pictures the majority of the time. They add pictures women will like the majority of the time. This site looks like a woman's magazine it definitely panders to young women more than anyone.
"Nice boots.""What's your bench press? That's pretty good."
I say we never do. We show appreciation by insulting in humourous ways.
I had a guy shout sexy legs at me from a car when I was walking wearing shorts. I guess it was a compliment?
Lol definatly wanted u sexually
In my group we do compliment eachother when there is reason for it. Like when got into my school my friends were happy for me and told good job.
When it comes to appearance, it's just a girl thing (unless a homie needs a pep talk before asking a girl out or somethin).
Yea you're right it's seldom for a guy to compliment his other guy friend. At least on his looks. It happens but very uncommon.
girls complimenting each other is a hypocritical action have you not seen Mean Girls?
"Nice [insert something here]!"But we also mock each others for quite a bit.
I try to compliment my bois when it's clear they went out of their way to do something i. e. when they dress nice, do something better than i couldve, etc.
Yea and they are real not back hand ones that I see girls always say like ‘you look good, today’ we say ‘nice shirt’
If your gay, making fun of a coworker and is also acceptable at your best homies wedding.
We compliment each others achievements. Not so much our looks.
Guys insult each other. My guy friends insult me and I insult them too. Hehe.
