    What?

    Guys never make threads asking why they get no interest from girls despite their friends telling them they look good.
    No we don't. But we do make comparable threads at a far more frequent rate. "I'm a nice guy but girls don't like me" threads are endemic. Girls making the kind of threads you're talking about are relatively rare.

    But these so called "friends" give people a false sense of security and are most likely abusing them behind their backs. I'd prefer people would be honest to me rather than lying to make someone feel happy for a while. Yh looks are subjective but you never see these people complimenting less attractive people
    I also prefer people around me are honest , especially friends, however, that bit in bold is a complete assumption on your part.

    Also complementing a friend in no way should guive them a false sense of security, it shows them they are appreciated , it shows them they are loved , it shows them they are wanted , it shows them they are needed. All this is very important for peoples mental make up, don't let me have to write this out in bullet points!

    The worlds ugly enough, there is really nothing wrong with those around us making it beautiful for us. Think positive not negative, don't be a negatron!

    lol come on don't act like you've never seen this before. It's utterly annoying, If they do look ugly maybe they shouldn't compliment them excessively

    Their "ugly" friends are beautiful on the inside - that's they compliment them.

    ofc looks are subjective, I just hate girls who compliment their friends who are artficailly and stereotypically attractive
    Those girls probably just have that idea of beauty though. Like the Kylie Jenner effect, modern beauty ideals are based on some pretty synthetic looks. And honestly, maybe what they actually mean is their makeup/hair (i.e. their appearance in a particular instance). If you see a typically unkempt friend in a suit, you're gonna think he looks good. And you're not going to explicitly tell someone they look good 'compared to usual' are you? That is implied. And when someone puts in effort, then posts a picture online, for the world to see - their friends know that if no-one provides any kind of validation/acknowledgment then they will feel inadequate. You know, it's cool to joke and all but some guys act like this 'undeserved' validation is going to console these girls to the point of delusion, which they will then live by, especially around guys. But, come on, they are probably insecure af and a few comments can't change that indefinitely. I think it's nice that they get some compliments - when they go out of their way to look good, and put themselves out there - from the people that care about them.

    Nobody deserves anything...except yknow like the actual fundamental human rights in the Human Rights Charter.
    Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves whatever colour, shape or size.

    It's not about beauty at all, most people don't pick friends on what they look like, it is about friendship. Tbh, when you have a friend that you love so much, you don't see the way they look. That all doesn't matter.

    So to them, they might be beautiful, to you perhaps not, but then again no one cares what you think
