Have an opinion?
Not sure I'd say it's exactly more meaningful, but I suppose it would be more flattering coming from an attractive woman. I have had it happen before, and it's nice, but I wouldn't exactly say it's more meaningful. It's just more charming. I would find it more meaningful if her intentions were good.
what are not good intentions?
@ManOnFire More flattering, yes I can actually agree with you on that. Do you mean more genuine in your last line?
Yes, good intentions are being genuine and saying I'm good-looking because you really mean it and maybe you really do like me. Some women lie to guys about being handsome because they think that's what we want to hear, or they lie about it as an ulterior motive to get our attention so they can use us.
If it's a looks based compliment, I find attractive womens' input more meaningful because it lets me know a girl I'm attracted to would be interested in my physically. It's relevant to me. Otherwise their looks doesn't matter when complimenting.
Thanks for mh!
No. One of the best compliments I've ever gotten was from an elderly lady. She told me I was so pretty and sweet that I have my pick of the very best men around. That meant the world to me, esp at the time
You girls are lucky that you have that. If an older man complimented me like that I would just think he was a pedophile.
@Jamie05rhs lol even at the age of 32? I think that would be more like gay than pedo
Hey! I'M not old. Lol
No. It's more of a feeling about how genuine the person is based on the (limited) knowledge you have of them.
Thank you for the MHO
I never trust a compliment... that my ego doesn't tell me.
Yes in a certain sense, however it requires context. I value compliments more from people that I respect and trust than people I do not. Those whom I trust and respect are the ones to whom I am the closest. When it comes to attractiveness, I develop a sense of a person being beautiful based on how much I care about them as a person. So then a compliment is more meaningful to me from someone I consider attractive because I will most often FIND them attractive due to the respect and trust I place in them.
Well, I’m sure it depends on the specific compliment, but overall, yes, a compliment from a woman that I find attractive elicits a different feeling from me as compared from a woman that I do not find attractive. I think, deep down, my brain is communicating to me that a compliment received by a woman I find attractive is an increase in potential of being with this woman. A compliment from a woman I find attractive signals to me that this woman might find me attractive and want to get with with me in an intimate manner. I believe that a compliment from a person you find attractive, takes on a different meaning and elicits a somewhat different feeling in you as opposed to the same compliment by someone you do not find attractive. I believe this difference is, in a way, related to sexuality or intimacy.
I just find compliments kind of awkward in general, especially if it is face-to-face whether I find the person is attractive to me, or not I can't hide the awkwardness or the embarrasment so I used just smile and say thank you.Online, obviously people are more confident so they'll say something more bold. If someone attempts to compliment me but it ends up being disgusting I won't even respond- it's just another person to add to my "block" list. If compliments are sweet, I still find it kinda awkward but not as much and usually just reply with a "thank you":)
Not always. I attended a Harry Potter pub crawl 2 years ago, & at the nightclub many people complimented me in my Newt Scamander costume (especially attractive girls). However, my favourite compliment that night came from a drunk young man 🤪🍺 So for me, compliments don’t have their worth based on a person’s attractiveness
Is it because you feel his compliment is more genuine?
@shimmeryns Funnily enough, I felt it was more genuine than the rest because he was so drunk he didn’t even know it was a costume 😅🤣
Dude, that's so fucking awesome.
@Jamie05rhs Thanks. To everyone, all they saw was a costume that belonged to a famous character. But to this guy, he saw a flamboyant style that belonged to me (as far as he was concerned) 😅 He clearly didn’t know much about the Wizarding World...
Hahaha. I'm not a Harry Potter fan but I at least know who he is.
Its unfortunate but I believe so. Many people only want to attract the beautiful people and get stupid when one notices them. The ones deemed not so attractive aren't really given the time of day although I understand this is not always the case.a lot of times if a seemingly unattractive man gives an attractive woman a compliment it's not taken as very serious or taken as a creep moment, however they may fall head over heels if an attractive man gives the same compliment.I know the same does happen with guys even if guys won't admit to it.
Hmm... Interesting! I've never really thought about it but yeah I do find the compliment more meaningful if I'm attracted to the person. I think that could just be a reflection of how I feel about the person and how I want their attention. It could also be that I'm a bit of a pleaser. it sounds so weird but the person I'm attracted to complimenting me, it's like I'm pleasing them. 😂
Wow, so us unattractive by super model standards even have our compliments brushed aside by America's beautiful people?It really makes my skin crawl to think people think like this.I really wish I hadn't read this.
I'm genuinely shocked you get offended over this. I did not insult anyone or calling anyone unattractive.
Your haughtiness blinds you to be "shocked". But you've probably always been one of the most beautiful girls everywhere you go. As far as being "offended" no you dont control my emotions so. I just shake my head (smh). Nice to meet you. Sincerely, "The ugly kid"
This question is inspired by a conversation I had with a guy friend. He told me he values compliment from girls he finds attractive.And no one here is calling you ugly?
Then maybe you should have expressed it was the opinion of your "guy friend". Or better yet maybe you should have posed it to your "guy friend" "So compliments from unattractive people are virtually meaningless?"Guess it never occurred to you? "Birds of a feather" you know?No you didn't call me anything, but anyone that was as a teen thats been told or teased that they were "ugly" or had been ostracized because he/she didn't dress fashionably, didn't have $200 Nike gym shoes, or her hair wasn't braided uniquely reads it as I read it. Not looking to battle with the pretty girls of affluence today niether.Peace girl ✌😎
Perhaps you haven't been on g@g long enough to know how people on here can ask direct, ignorant and offensive question -- from anonymous asker. Well brace yourself for the g@g ride.
For what it's worth, you are not ugly. You remind me of a track star I grew up with, she's still good looking at an older age. I was ridiculed for how I looked, they were right for a while, then I grew up, people are mean when they are immature. So, what's more precious, a stone that looks like all the other stones in the pile, or the one unique one? They take the unique one and put it on a stand and protect it and put a huge price tag on it... the rest of the "normal" stuff is what's low worth. Thus, consider your worth is greater than you've perceived. Your response, is demonstrating sensitivity to the question, which says you've got some healing to do in this area. The asker does not know your reality, her question was fair from her frame of reference. Your reaction is your own, you have a right to it... only you have lived in your shoes. Others can only give alternate perspective.
Oh you point to what you perceive as My "sensitivity" and suggest I should work on My issues on the subject? While you excuse her ignorance and arrogance from her affluence and beauty to pose the post as it is?She deflects you defend.All thataint getting you any closer to tapping that cooch so just shut up talking fool.
This was her and I and it was put to rest, I can't see how you just stick your greasy beak into it and say it was "fair" to pose the post.Truthfully I dont believe for one minute she got this from a "guy friend" she f-- up deflected to another. I gave her ✌😎While you only expose how thirsty and lonely you are.Pffft fool.
You are toxic. And why should I be lying about it? Would you like me to c + p the convo here? Well sure..Me: But it was a dare, not exactly what you wanted. But you're cute so that makes up for it.Him: Aww thank you I appreciate it!Me: Oh (his name) I'm sure you know it already and beng told a thousand times that you are.Him: Well it matters more to me coming from you, its not everyday that you get compliments by someone as pretty.Let me know if you need the original screenshots. Thanks.
Girl, we put it to rest hours ago, I've no interest in knowing more about you or your friends than I've already learned. And you call me "Toxic" ? You dont even see or acknowledge the lack of empathy you posed to all that read it. But if I posted a dismissal of fat people, or squirrelly penised phillipno men you'd certainly would be blasting toxic bs right at me. Leave it alone already Jesus phucking puuulease.
✌😎 again. No go to bed with it.
Sure, post those stuff if you want. My original question is prove to be non offensive comparing to your suggestion.
Wow even still when I give you an out with peace, you go on with an arrogance like the Duracell bunny you just keep going and going without acknowledging "yeah I see how those teased about being ugly may relive their torment with what I posed". You really must of been Very Popular in school.
"To protect generation snowflake, some universities have created "safe spaces", which are areas that allow individuals who feel marginalized to come together to communicate regarding their experiences. Some universities have also taken to announcing "trigger warnings", which are warnings that material (e. g., work or a lecture) may contain concepts or pictures that could invoke some mental trauma."Maybe I should consider trigger warning?
No what you should do is reach down into that fishy smelling bait box between your bean poles and scratch n sniff, to be sure your shit dont stink.
I admire the amount of intellect behind that response 😊
I thoight i could help but... guess not. this is sensitive emotional issue. Lightbulb turning off...
Apologies for the intrusion.
Shove your "sensitive emotional issue" up your nosey God damn ass fool.
Yes definitely! I feel like unattractive people have lower standards as they are not physically attractive themselves so they might not realize when someone is a true beauty. Attractive people are beautiful and have been around beauty so they have a better judgement of if someone else is beautiful as well.
Pretty much this
No it shouldn't make a difference - Whether you think they mean it or not is more important
Because it has a better potential, while if it's from a unattractive then that's it, a nice comment, the potential is low. Hench a attractive persons comments are worth more. Because what it might offer in the future. Not the comment itself.
Sometimes I feel compliments are bullshit from people who wants to bullshit you honestly.
There's some truth to that yes.
No, of course not. If anything, I’d be more doubtful of how genuine the compliment is if it’s coming from someone attractive. What with the risk of them relying on just their looks to get by and all.
Yes I do! Bonus points if the compliment comes from a pretty girl. That’s how you know they aren’t lying lol
I guess you're right
No, if anything, it makes me think they're lying and being manipulative. I would be more likely to think it's sincere if it's from someone I don't find attractive.
I feel it is meaningful if it seems sincere, and is very specific about what I did or didn't do to earn the compliment.
Not 'attractive' so much, but someone that is a TRUE FRIEND saying it!!
yes it’s realistic but beauty is a trait appreciated by all living beings. Even babies , children and pets can attest to it.
I find people who are considered less attractive dont just say things to say them. Plenty of times I could see someone who is confident enough to say something and may or may not be in their technical lane to be much more complimentary, simp, y due to the ram ambition they had for the need to say it.
Depends on the context and the kind of compliment. But generally having someone that finds me attractive is already a compliment in itself - especially if that someone is attractive themselves.
Nope , i believe any girl can look attractive or unattractive andi would still like the compliment and yes i would most likely like herbeauty is skin deep when it comes to appearance.
No I don't. I feel a compliment is more meaningful if its about me as a person and if it comes from someone who really knows me and isn't just romanticizing me or whatever.
I said no, but the answer is maybe:)It's more about if I think it is genuine.
Should have voted "other" then. Yes I agree how genuine a compliment is matters more than who the complimenter is.
not more meaningful but definetly more suprising :DA compliment is welcomed either way.
Depends on the person who is receiving that compliment
In this case, you are the one receiving the compliment.
I'm shallow enough, that often times, if someone good looking complements me, it's more meaningful. I don't like that part about me.
Nothing wrong with that. I think it happens to all of us. If a hot women compliments me it's cool and I don't mind.
When strangers give me compliments I kinda just brush it off it doesn’t matter if that person is attractive or not. When my SO give me compliments it’s meaningful to me
I trust compliments from girls a lot more than ones from guys
yeah lol when a hot girl compliments it feels as if we are also hot to her levelBut beauty is also subjective so still person may be doubtful
An attractive person giving me compliments might make them a little more attractive to me but it doesn't make the compliment any more meaningful than if it came from anyone else.
No, I don't get many compliments, but when I do I take it to heart and never forget it.
It is more meaningful if is said by someone I like, it doesn't matter if is attractive or not.
If my boyfriend says it to me it is more meaningful and special
Nope! I like compliments from anyone. Just because they are attractive doesn't make their opinion any more valid.
No. If anything it makes me feel like they're mocking me.
Oh. So from who would you prefer the compliment coming from?
Normal people I guess? lol, but if she's like a model and says I'm handsome I'm not going to take her seriously.
I personally will find it flattering lol! As many have mentioned, how genuine a compliment is what makes it meaningful 😊
Complement is compliment and makes me feel good for like the rest of the year tbh
Most of the time but it doesn't always follow that it must be the case.
I don't know, I don't really put much stake into compliments. It doesn't boost or shake my self-esteem. I'm confident in where I am.
It doesn't matter who offered the complement so long as it was genuine.
No honestly Not everyone is honest.Attractive or not.
It doesn't matter what they look like. A compliment is a compliment.
Hello stinky booty girl 🤣🤣I guess you have a very stinky asshole lol
Of course. Ugly guys are desperate and always complimenting.
if its about looks yes
How are you doing today I hope you're having a wonderful day
Depends what the compliment is I guess
I voted no a compliment is a compliment
i think i might feel little awkward
Yes I do.
Yes it is to me.
