    I will ask next time. Was in a rush.

    Would you ponder on it after?
    Ah ok, obviously you didn't think she was that pretty then.

    It's not creepy. Why didn't ask for her number or anything?

    I've had this happen to me two weeks ago- ish and then this weekend, from random guys. But they never asked for my number or anything. Are we suppose to ask?

    I need a reply ASAP.
    Maybe they don't want your number? Just saying their thoughts?

    Probably. Some people are just complimenting random girls for a piss take. Maybe seeing what they could get without too much effort. If he can approach to compliment he can ask for her digits. Unless it was one of those passing by random compliment things while he was going. Most of those get ignored though.

    Yeah but you can't always think like that and be stushy all the time. Not every guy is a creeper like that.

    Nope. Just random passing compliments from some random bloke. I've never really see those get entertained (because they're creepy and dodgy) which is why I do it less n less, unless I'm blathered.

    Whatever? Do what you want and be so desperate for a compliment that you respond to some random in the street.

    Keep it to one post. And I didn't say anything about hollering. You can be creepy with a whisper. I'm talking about being an opportunist flirting with girls in certain places, whether you're hollering or not. I already replied to op's situation, maybe you missed it.

    It's romantic and sexy when a cute guy compliments a random girl.


    It's considered disgusting and creepy when an ugly guy does the exact same thing.

    I never understood why the guy always has to approach the girl. If you find him attractive, you go and initiate the conversation. Go after what you want.

    Not creepy but a bit inappropriate. I think pretty girls in retail get a lot of this, almost becomes an occupational hazard.

    It's a compliment and all compliments are nice. She sounded a little shy, it was normal, her reaction.

    Just because you find a guy attractive doesn't mean you want them.
    I just don't get guys who go up to girls, I mean you already made the effort why not finish and see if she's willing to give you her number. You just want to let know she's beautiful ?..k.

    What the **** are you talking about?

    @xobeauty clearly said it bothers her when a good looking guy she's interested in her doesn't ask. I told her she should go ask those guys. In no way was I implying that you want everyone you find attractive - that's just ridiculous, and you completely misunderstood the point I was trying to get across if that's what you inferred.

    As for you second point - what's wrong with giving someone a compliment and leaving it at that? Is that too much for your brain to comprehend? Maybe they just want to make someone else feel better, or maybe sometimes they're just too nervous to ask. It doesn't matter.

    Girls don't have to deal with rejection most of the time. Guys usually do. I'm assuming you don't know what rejection feels like so perhaps you should shut up when it comes to things you have no idea about.

    You even admitted you're a egotistical big-headed person. I don't wish to converse with you or argue with you any more.

    You can reply to this if you wish, rest assured I won't bother reading or replying to your response.

    Creepiness is not about looks. It's all about the environment where he's doing it. Complimenting like walking up to her, being courteous and conversational, etc is one thing. Like donutellme says that's how relationships good or bad might start.


    But it is "disgusting and creepy" even if he's fit but driving by slowing saying oi baby get on my lap out the window or something, that's not on. There's nothing "romantic" about it. Or maybe you're just being sarcastic. Only a girl who has insecurity issues would appreciate the random compliment, but nice conversation is a different story.
