Story Time: What's The Weirdest Compliment You've Ever Received?

Uh, thanks?
A guy recently told me that I had "the perfect amount of hair on my head." When I raised my eyebrow, he elaborated saying, "No, I mean your hair is nice and full but it's not overpowering your face. Seriously; the amount of hair you have is perfect." Ok, then! Thanks for, uh, noticing?

It got me wondering if you guys ever get any bizarre/ strange/ wacky compliments too. Anyone ever tell you that you have thin fingers that look perfect for picking up change between couch cushions? Or that you have terrific hips that remind him of a Porche 911? Or that you look just like Ross Perot but if he were a woman? Tell me!

Leave 'em in the comments.

much love for cultural differences.

when on a flight to india, the extremely adorable (indian) flight attendant asked me if he could tell me something.
"of course!" i answered.
"you are very very pretty..." (OMG!! sky high self esteem!!!)
"I have fallen in love with your cheeks, they are so very very chubby!"
(self esteem crashes and burns.)

I once had a guy say, "I love your teeth. Good teeth are a sign of good breeding."

"you have bite-able thighs' from a guy on the metro.

Anna said...

Ha! These are all great.

On a date he says "So you have an underbite hey?" (side note: you're thinking he's a dentist aren't you? No such thing! Paint retoucher for car dealerships!)
So i was ready to be offended and he says " No, i mean I think it's sexy, but did you realise you have one?"

uh, thanks?

I've actually been complimented twice on the peach fuzz on my cheeks. Fucking weird.

A guy once told a friend of mine, while they were making out, "You feel good for a girl who never works out." Ummmm.

"You eat cute." From some guy in high school many years ago.

I had a girl tell me I had a "memorable gait" once and more than one girl has complimented my eyebrows.

Toni Alayne said...

He liked the way I talked because apparently I over-pronounce my "R"'s...?

Oh thanks, dick!

After playing with my hair:

"Your hair is so great. I just can't stop touching it. It's like doll hair."

"..."

"American GIRL doll hair."

I was once earnestly told that I reminded this guy of pamela anderson back when she was still hot. the look on his face...like he was honestly giving me the greatest compliment in his repertoire. sigh...

I think getting complimented on my belly button has to be the weirdest. It is what I call an innie/outie and since I was a kid I always wanted one of those belly buttons that actually went in. Weird compliments about weird insecurities you have are the best!

Guys have complimented me on my good posture several times. And I too have also been told that I eat my food "so tidy and cute"

"Your hands are so well proportioned" This from a guy desperately trying to hit on me

I once went out with a guy who said, "I'm not afraid of my genetic material mixing with yours. I was ready to marry my highschool sweatheart at one point & was always disturbed by the idea of my genes mixing with hers and the kids that we would have. With you I am not worried about it and think that we would have smart kids." Twisted and weird, but I took it as complimentary as I could.

1. "Did you have a nose job recently? Because your nose is too perfect to be natural."

2. "Most girls are totally crazy. You are not so bad." (Cue feminist rage.)

One of my guy friends told me I look like a "rough sorority girl" and absolutely insists it was a compliment.

He was like, "Yeah, you look like a sorority girl... but like you've been around." ???

I'm 31, so I'm perfectly aware that I do not look 18... but still...

"You look exactly like Arianna Huffington..."

"Uh, she's 60"

"Nah, she's hot, trust me"

I'm 26.

Kaitlin said...

I've been told that my hair looks very "natural." I don't dye or otherwise treat it, and I grow it myself. Still don't quite know what was meant by that.

After my boyfriend's roommate noticed a small mole on my arm, he says:

"See, I like that. I like women like you that have imperfections."

Thanks?

A guy at Dirty Franks Once told me I was the definitive of the word slatternly.

Gee, thanks.

I (a pale, white girl) was walking down the street, and two guys were sitting on their stoop. One of the guys says to me, "Yo girl, you got a nice complexion." and winked. What?

Alisa said...

Strong eyebrows. It's true....

Are you on drugs? Your eyes are sooooooooo glassy!
A "compliment?" from a classmate in first grade.

1. "I've never seen such symmetrical moles."
and
2. "You have the most beautiful eyelashes. Can I have them when you die?" (That was a first -and last- date.)

I have been told by multiple guys that I have "sturdy ankles" ...they always follow it up by saying something along the lines of "I mean, not like cankles. They're just thick"

hellooooo insecurity I never would have thought about before

EEE said...

1. You have such Spanish eyes...are you Latvian?
2. You have really small boobs, but your nipples make up for it.
3. Wow, you have hairy arms. I like that in a woman.

????? IN WHAT WORLD DID THESE GUYS THINK THIS WAS A COMPLIMENT

Cappy Cook said...

Sitting on the couch with my feet up.. A previous male roommate (I'm male also) stated:

"You have beautiful toes and feet."

And then they proceeded to run their finger up the arch of my foot.

Anna said...

I'm not kidding; I laughed out loud when I read that.

Josie said...

let me just explain that i am a tall, curvy, but proportionate young lady. i'm not fat by anyone's definition, but i do have a little softness, if you get my drift.

almost every man i have been in bed with has felt that need to comment on my chub. they all say things like "i like your thighs, they're healthy." "i don't like skinny girls." "i like that i can grab on to you" and my all time favorite - "LAHME!" he said as he grabbed my thigh and jiggled it. (lahme means meat in arabic. he's arab, i'm not, but he knows i can speak arabic)

a group of guys sittin on a stoop:

While at work, washing dishes and up past my elbows in suds, my co-worker walks in and says "if I were to make a woman like one were to make a Mrs. Potato Head I would use your nose."

He then turned around and walked out of the room.

I was once told that I "have some damn nice feet for a white girl."

I was hanging out with some friends getting and getting some ice cream with my fraternal twin sister. I must add that my sister and I look, act and are completely different. Anyway, while I was getting some ice cream the boy in line behind me who had been flirting with me for the last couple days and trying desperately to integrate himself into the group said to me "You and your sister have the same scent" and "it's really hot"

......um, thanks?

"You're so hot. So hot. You're so beautiful.... You remind me of my sister"
"You look so sweet. You look just like my grandmothers kitten"
"Your knees are so nice. They're just... they're knobbly, but not too knobbly. The perfect amount of knobbly, you know? If I was going to have a knee job, I's ask for your knees"

...I have no idea how I ended up here years later but felt obliged to post. I mean, how the fuck do I look like a cat? Why your grandmothers? Is that supposed to be a compliment? Is that meant to mean something else?

"I really like your elbow." A little while later . . . "I actually really like your other elbow as well."
