    Not really sure what to make of it tbh :unsure:

    What does it even mean to look intelligent? I don't wear glasses so it can't be that either.

    Extremely complimentary for a woman.

    Not so much for a guy.

    It certainly sounds like a compliment - even if a nonsensical one.

    It really depends on the context.
    it's also a bit of a leading question as everything you mentioned has positive connotations.

    I think I'm really kind and lovely, but I do see what they mean. It's why I need to help old ladies cross the road to get up my good guy factor.

    I just don't get how someone can look intelligent, aside from wearing the stereotypical glasses. You can't see someone's cerebral capacity on their face is what I mean

    They probably mean maturity/civility more than actually intellectual capacity.

    Often that is what most folks think of when they think of intelligence as a positive trait.

    In contrast to the anti-social, autistic, theoretical physicist.

    :P

    Again, a very complimentary line I would say.

    Maybe they meant you are (or seem to be) intelligent and kind? :P

    Nevertheless, almost definitely a compliment.
