I have had guys and girls do this to me. I don't understand, I think I am fine enough to not receive what I believe is fake compliment. For example, One of my classmate in my prom was talk about my bag and it was telling me how beautiful it is. It was just a plastic black bag and then they talk about my dress and I know my dress was not the prettiest. Then, I have guys in group give me hints that was attractive but I know I am not that unbelievable. I am just a typical joe so I don't understand why be nice to me. I feel like sometimes someone ploting against me.
