Wow I've never heard it used that way. Totally serious. Sorry. I'll shuffle along my way.

I have a very hard day time accepting compliments- I almost always deflect. But, it’s still nice when I receive them.
I’m trying to get better at giving them.
Sadly that's often true, but any compliments from me are from the heart with no strings attached. Having a twin sister I like and notice 'girly' things so it comes naturally...sometimes people think I'm gay, but I'm not lol

I hate to say it, but my exerience in life has been that most men compliment women for physical attractiveness usually done to receive a positive response from the woman.

Down here in the South, we men still have manners and give a woman her due. She usually soends about an hour at minimum in front of a mirror, of course she wants a compliment. Women have an ego also. It pays dividens to to make a good impression also.

I always give compliments when I am out and about. It puts a smile on someone's face and brightens their day, especially if they are having a bad one. I love receiving compliments myself. I often hide how much physical pain I am in and a compliment on my dress or jewelry or whatever makes me feel better, if only momentarily and makes me smile.
