    It actually depends on the girl, some girls find the compliments awkward and annoying and others like the attention and admiration.

    Personally, I steer clear as soon as a guy starts giving a lot of compliments. I find them unnecessary (not to mention awkward because I'm just like "hehe ok", if I look good I'll know that I look good, I don't need to be told (I'm really not vain, I promise lol) but that might just be because I'm a Hijabi...
    I feel awkward too receiving compliments. I don't know how to reply to them especially from guys because I rarely receive them from guys (mostly female friends)

    I find that hard to believe if you're either one of those girls in your avatar! You seem very pretty, I would have assumed you got compliments all the time lol. I can definitely understand where you come from.

    I think it would be more awkward for you because if a guy compliments you it could indicate that he's interested and wants more which I'm guessing is flattering. However for a Muslim girl wearing a headscarf, they know that it's not going to go any further than a thank you for the compliment so it's not as awkward.

    To be honest, I actually don't only my close friends. I'm not complaining because although they give you self boost, I just never know which to reply other than just a thank you.

    I totally understand what you mean about only further it will be is a thank you because I too have a lot of self respect for myself. Not suggesting every boy who compliments is into the girl but it's difficult for me to trust people *.*

    1 rep from me if I have any left

    dont know what the threads about, but a lot of girls nowadays have false inflated egos because a lot of guys compliment them

    your average 5/10 thinks she's a 9/10
    Well seeing as opinions on looks are subjective, maybe people are genuinely attracted to that perceived 5/10? Just a thought...

    I guess, I don't compliment people on their appearance unless they ask me what I think.

    From my experience my 6/10s are often 8/10s in the eyes of my close friends, so going by the same gap maybe your 5/10 is seen by others as a solid 7/10?

    Of course if you don't find her attractive then there's no need to compliment her, call her ugly if you really want it ain't my business, but don't go stating your rates out of 10 as hard facts, it's all opinion.

    So I know plenty of girls that get bombarded with compliments about their looks etc. Doesn't it get boring after a while? Do you think "oh no, not again" etc

    I find I'm so reluctant to compliment a girl on her looks. I just feel I'd some off like another desperate guy if I do so, also that I'm only talking to her for superficial reasons. Only people close to me know it's hard to get a compliment out of me, so when I do make a very mild compliment, they appreciate it like crazy.
    do you think kylie jennee really gives a **** if you compliment her lol


    she knows where she stands
