    i was wondering how you guys respond when someone pays you a compliment? for example, if someone compliments my clothes or jewellery or i can say 'oh thanks, i got it in *shop*' or something like that, but the other day when i was in work someone said i had lovely skin and i jus went really red and looked down because i didn't know what to say and i'm sure they thought i was really rude as they were being nice and i couldn't even be polite

    You just say 'thankyou' or 'wow, thankyou very much that's a really lovely compliment'.

    I always try and compliment them back. But it's very hard if a... rather large person compliments your waist or something. So awkward.

    I respond by asking "does that mean we're going to have sex soon?"

    It really is awkward when they compliment something that is not so great about them.
    Off the topic, but I really wanted to get that top you have in your profile pic! Too expensive for me :sigh:

    But yeah, I usually make it a point to compliment them back on something in the near future. :yep:

    The only time I can remember being complimented was in a coffee shop about 4 weeks ago about my tshirt. I was so wtf about it ...first another customer said it was nice then the coffee seller said it was nice. I'm fairly sure I turned bright red and was just like "er.....................than ks?" :o:

    Haha it depends if I think they're just joking with me. If I know them then I smile and thank them. But if I don't know them, then I generally just mumble my thanks and just have a look of confusement on my face in case they were messing with me! :confused:

    I'm so so so crap at taking compliments. I usually deny them or shrug them off!

    I used to try to return them, but its quite obvious when you don't mean it. Now its just "Really? Thanks" :p:
